    RM-985 is the one you want for T-Mo. RM-984 has the wrong LTE radio for use in North America.

    Except: If you leave a T-Mo LTE area then legacy frequencies are in place and the RM-985 does not support 1700 on the 3G so it falls to EDGE speeds...

    Those RM numbers are used to distinguish between different Regions for the same device or carrier specific models.

    I believe RM-984 is the International and RM-985 is the AT&T...

    <edit> Nope, now I see on B&H that they have RM-985 unlocked and I don't think it is AT&T although it would work on there. Maybe a Latin American variant? RM-984 definitely has Euro compatible radios...

    Hey AJ. I'm using the RM-985 on T-Mobile. Where I live I'm getting great Tmo LTE download/upload speeds all around. Very happy with this 830! Only this phone doesn't get Tmo 4G HD voice. Phone calls go to 3G. Not a big deal at all

    Here's a screen of Tmo speeds I'm getting at the moment with the RM-985 830.

    Where I live the 830 typically gets 35-45 Mbps download. 5-12 Mbps upload.
