    Hello Everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone has any answers to the following.

    For the international N920i (link here New Samsung Galaxy Note 5 N920I 32GB LTE GSM Unlocked 16 0 MP Smartphone | eBay)

    1) Will it work 100% on Tmobile? 3g 4g everything?
    2) How do OS updates happen? I understand that OEMs have a hand in it, but not sure how this will happen with an unlocked international version - I am extremely curious to this.
    3) I assume there is no bloatware at all?
    4) What is the difference between this and the dual sim? SM-N9208 and SM-N920C?
    4) Any other considerations?


    Thanks everyone. This deal seems good and I wanted to cover my bases before I jump in. This will be my first international phone so I am pretty cautious.

    Thanks!

    Ill answer as much as i can. All note 5 handsets will work on t mobile usa up to 3g however not all will work on 4g but the ones youve listed will work. Also you would get software updates earlier than carrier locked handsets. N9208 is for taiwan market. N920i for australia and N920C for middle east. The dual sim version is the N920CD and will also work

    You won't get h+ aws which is 3g/4g. Otherwise you should be ok radio wise

    Wfc might not work.

    Per the specs on the eBay site, you won't get 4g- aws h+.you will get 4g pcs, where deployed. Other than that you would be fine with edge /4GLTE.

    I had the Australian on AT&T. Worked perfectly, and in fact, I feel like it worked better than the 64g AT&T I picked up.

    This website will hold all your answers! You just put in your model number and pick what country and service you want to use and it will tell you if it will work. I travel a lot internationally and it hasn't let me down yet.

    Does anyone have an answer to this. I'd also love to know. I have a sm-N920c that I would love to eventually use with Samsung pay.

    I know that my Samsung pay will not allow my American credit cards (i live in korea and have a Korean carrier and phone) also I tried to side load the USA version of samsung pay and it would not work. It replace it immediately with the Korean version. Also when I was in the states two weeks ago I was completly unable to use samsung pay with my normal Korean bank cards, which the cards do work fine in the US.

    Hmm.. That is odd. Supposedly the USA models will allow Samsung Pay to work worldwide. Seems like it would be compatible both ways.
