    given today's news about the rationalizing of the windows market, I'm in the market for a new phone. I had a 925 but cracked the screen. so bought a 635 as a backup and it's downright awful. Locks up all the time. I have to pull the battery to reset it at least twice a day.

    So... I want a 640 xl as a stop gap to a full new machine with the flagship enabled continuum phone.

    But, I don't know which of the unlocked phones on expansys-usa to buy.

    Please help

    I don't recall the RM, but the one marketed as Dual-SIM LTE on their site is the one that T-Mobile users are getting. Gets LTE, but misses out on Wi-Fi Calling.

    thanks for the reply. They list two LTE dual sim models. One specifically for USA LTE. WIFI calling is nice I guess, but it never worked on T-Mobile locked 635. I just want the big screen so cheaper is better for me, they have one @$199

    RM-1096 is the dual sim lte international version and RM-1065 is the dual sim lte US version.

    Also try bhphotovideo.com for some too, they do a nice thing and have a list of bands. Usually their phones work on T-mobile and AT&T, but they also have a list of the bands that can/will work for NA carriers. It's more expensive on there though.

    Looks to me like the 1065 and the 1096 have correct bands for T Mobile. Not sure what the difference is besides the fact that the 1096 is an international model and likely no US warranty? Expansys has the 1096 on sale for 199. No US warranty but they do cover it for 6 months in house.

    Thanks Cane, I emailed Expansys and they picked the same one. Now, I think I'm going to get the blue one. My 635 is just downright awful.

    Let me know how you like it. I've been eying that one as well. I'm also on the T Mobile network. Would love to hear how it works once you get it.

    I have an RM-1096 XL that I am looking to sell (likely) and it works on T-Mobile.
