    Can anyone tell me where to buy an unlocked, intl. S4 Active???

    I want to pick up a Intl. unlocked version of the S4 Active. I would use it on T-mobile for the next month, then I'm moving to Mexico for 6 months, then Argentina next year. I have a T-mobile S4 right now, and I'm worried about other countries's network compatibility and the lack of waterproofness.

    So, this says that the 1700 and 1900 bands are only on the AT&T version... Those are T-Mobile's bands for 4g...

    Thoughts? I think I might just need to do the Google Play Edition instead.

    Like I said you probably wont have LTE but 3G and so on:
