    The att note 5 will get all the lte bands tmobile needs. We won't discuss 4g since you aren't concerned about it.

    The tmobile Note 5 gets most of the lte bands for att,but is missing two secondary bands

    Both are soon locked, but you could get it unlocked

    Features like wfc night not work.

    Say I am concerned with 4g. How does that factor into which model is best to get? And to be clear the Att model supports all T-Mobile lte bands if unlocked? Thanks!

    The att version doesn't support aws the 4g which tmobile uses...it depends on whether or not your area uses it...

    The att version doesn't support aws 4g. So you will not be able to get aws 4g no matter where you are. TMobile has pcs 4g deployed in certain areas however aws is Tmobile's main 4g deployment.

    Go to this site. It will sort it all out for you. You'll need to know the sub-model number.

    That site says it supports aws

    On a side note, the edge plus says it supports the same things.

    The att version doesn't support 4g aws. Note that att considers h+ umts to be 4g,but Samsung considers h+ umts to be 3g.

    But it's not the same even though Att and Samsung consider aws 3G or 4g? Also is there a difference between b17, b12 and b29? Are they different sections of 700? Thanks for your help !!!

    Again, att doesn't support h+ aws umts. The tmobile one does. Both att and tmobile support aws lte.

    LTE band 29 is a minor band for att. B17 is a subset of b12 but the Carrier needs to support the specific band for it to work

    Thanks for your help and patience! I think I'm going to go work the gold tmobile version 32gb as I haven't had a tmobile branded phone in years. It will of course be used on tmobile. I already have an Att note 4 and verizon note 3 so might as well get a tmobile note 5 mostly because of the color. Thanks again!!
