    Have a few questions for those who bought an unlocked N8 and are using it on T-Mobile. Have you lost any functionality like wi-fi calling or other? How's the speed on the network? Did you just pop your TMO sim in? Feel free to add anything else during your experience.

    Yeah just pop in your T-Mobile SIM and good to go. Generally you won't lose WiFi calling, volte and other features on unlocked phones on T-Mobile and no different on this. Speeds are same like any other phone on T-Mobile, depends on your location and working great for me. I generally don't use all the T-Mobile features like for example visual voicemail etc

    Is there anything particular you were worried about?

    Thanks @Bahtech. My main concerns were Wi-Fi calling, HD voice and if it would configure correctly with TMO features. Any issues with mobile hotspot? That's another big feature I need.

    I just tried to turn it on. I could set it up so I'm assuming it'll work. I can try setting up later at home again and connect with another device to see if it connects fine.

    I'm using an unlocked model with my T-Mo sim and everything is working great. It defaulted to Wi-Fi calling automatically on the first boot up. Speeds are AMAZING!Unlocked Note 8 on T-Mobile-screenshot_20170908-015658.jpg

    Yeah it's been like this for sometime now, and with unlimited I don't use WiFi on my phone at home or work. Speeds are always in 3 digit number and awesome experience
