An FYI for discussion. Info obtained from each carrier website for the S8...

I use AT&T but I can get an S8 with corp contract pricing through AT&T or Verizon... so I'm checking the bands supported on each carrier. I don't really travel much but if I did decide to go out of country like China, I wanted to see if the phone supported them (40, 41).

Surprisingly the LG G6 didn't look to support those bands on the 3 carriers.
And for the LG G6, the Verizon variant showed more bands supported than AT&T but seem opposite here. So I may just stick with AT&T if I did get the S8 (still considering G6). T-mobile always seem to support the least on S8 and G6.

T-Mobile has not listed all the bands for their LG G6 or the Samsung S8. LG lists all the bands on their site but Samsung does not so we're still in the dark as to which bands the S8 has on T-Mobile.
