    Anyone know if this is possible? I am trying to get my friend to let me borrow their sim to check? I bought my phone unsubsidized. Just curious if the bands match up.

    The phone works for Straight Talk as I will be cancelling my at&t account and just using my Straight Talk unlimited everything plan.

    well that's not true. TMO uses a different 3G/"4G" frequency. So you will only get EDGE.

    That's true but as far as 3G/4G speeds it's only gonna work on AT&T and I believe ROGERS in Canada who uses the same frequency as AT&T.

    Proof:

    Virgin = Sprint
    Sprint ≠ ATT
    ATT = Atrix
    Therefore, Atrix ≠ Virgin
