    Now that Tmobile is basically buying out ATT contracts from people... might want to look at it.. but only if I can keep my 1520...

    T-Mobile will pay up to $650 to switch you from AT&T, Sprint or Verizon | Fox News

    Tmobile buys phones ONLY that are under contract, I think. So the AT&T model, even unlocked, won't work really well with all of T-Mobile's bands.

    This is actually what I just came here to post. I'm really thinking about doing this switch, but I'm not sure if this will work on T-Mobile's bands.

    Well, I just looked at the specs of the phone, and it operates on the following frequencies:

    LTE Bands 2, 4, 5, 7, and 17
    WCDMA: 850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz

    T-Mobile utilizes band 4 here in the US and operates on 1700 and 2100 MHz. I just spoke with someone at T-Mobile to confirm this. So it looks like the AT&T 1520 (and 1020) will be compatible on T-Mobile's network!

    W00T!!!!

    You will get LTE no issues here BUT AS for WCDMA if you are in an area with reformed 1900 MHz you will get H+ but if you are in a 1700 MHz area your out of luck your stuck with edge

    They are separate bands. The phone is what is compatible with multiple bands.
