Welcome to the all-new Android Central Forums! - We're still moving some things around, so you may see a few quirks here and there, but we're working on getting things fully completed as soon as possible. For now, take a look around, and if you run into any major issues please let us know in this thread!
Unlocked devices usually don't support services such as Voice over LTE (VoLTE), Wi-Fi Calling, Mobile Hotspot and LTE Carrier Aggregation. Does the HTC One A9 Unlocked edition support those services?
Yes, unlike other mobile phone manufacturers, HTC is proud to offer the best user experience to our customers. We support Voice Services over LTE (VoLTE), Wi-Fi Calling, Mobile Hotspot and Carrier Aggregation. Our HTC One A9 has been built from the ground up for the North America customers and wireless networks. Some services may require the feature to be supported by your mobile operator before it will function on the HTC One A9.
The T-Mobile bloatware?
If it wasn't HTC, I'd be worried about features like VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling. If they follow what they did with the unlocked A9, there shouldn't be much to worry about.

Visual Voicemail (t-mobile's version) perhaps? My t-mobile branded GS6 really doesn't have much t-mobile bloat. It has by far more Samsung bloat...so I'm not too afraid of a t-mobile branded one. I would say, that with $100 off right now? I'll be getting the HTC one for the Uh-Oh protection...
I don't think you would get WiFi calling and maybe a few other things. If you're planning on buying the phone outright (full price) you could get the T-Mobile version and just have them unlock it after a few days. I did that with my S7 edge .
I would tell you to wait and see what T-Mobile 's prettiest sale offers. S7 had bogo free, and VR visit; g5 had spare battery, charger, and $200 camera. They may join with HTC to offer something cool now.
From the T-Mobile unboxing I saw, you probably won't get the new headphones if you buy from T-Mobile, but you won't get T-Mobile insurance support or jump on demand if you buy from HTC.
