That's the site showing the 3g bands as being for both.
Samsung Galaxy S II :
Tmobile version** (all of these will get at&t 3g/4g)
** = May need a modem/radio flashed to it to get right bands and be unlocked"
I have a question for this. I have a T-Mobile USA version of Samsung Galaxy S2 carrier unlocked and currently using the $30 T-Mobile monthly plan. Since T-Mobile's coverage is pretty inconsistent in my area, I'm considering to switch back to AT&T which has good reception in my past experience.
Are you saying that this phone can use Straight Talk's AT&T BYOD's SIM card and still can get AT&T's 3G/4G signals and not just stuck with EDGE/2G? I'm not sure how the ATT and T-Mobile BANDs work.
Enlightment please! Thanks ahead!
Also, I'd like to add since I see the confusion here, if you go to the link I just posted above take note of the 2g and 3g bands. Some people get confused that the specs they find list 850 and and 1900 there that it will work with the same 3g bands which is incorrect. Always check on the 3g vs. 2g bands.
I know this may be a bad question. I've done many searches and can't find the exact answer.
So here it is:
Will unlocked verizon phones with GSM work with straight talk sims? I'm thinking if that works I can get a bad esn phone off ebay for cheap.
Well I guess that info helps, but how about the Motorola Droid Razr?
Isn't the "GSM 850/900/1800/1900" good enough to get it to work?
Network Generation 3G, 4G

E6 yet, so it's not mine as of yet. Until someone confirms it will work with the BYO plan I wouldn't risk the $300+ investment. I know Amazon will take returns but it's a hassle.
I was sorta hoping someone on here who's really into phone testing had tried it out yet, but with this being a relatively new plan by SS I guess phones that aren't considered major players in the game these days take a while before someone plays with them like this.
I did find this in a review of the E6 online, if it gives away anything for those with the tech knowledge I obviously lack:
"Like the E7 and N8 before it – as well as others – there’s quadband GSM/EDGE and pentaband WCDMA (850/900/1700/1900/2100): you can merrily switch between an AT&T and T-Mobile USA SIM and get 3G data no matter which. It’s a significant feature we’re hoping Nokia preserves for its Windows Phone range."
Since the E6 does those other frequencies 1700/2100 it should do TMobile as well. .
I been researching the different phones and I been looking at the Sony Ericsson MT15a Xperia Neo (AT&T unlocked) and looking at pro and cons for this phone. Atrix is the other highly recommended phone too. I really wanted to keep under 275 on a new phone but I am like 900 points away on my credit card from being able to get a $100 Amazon Gift Card so this may open my opportinity in 3 or 4 months for me. Comments welcome on Sony Ericsson. I am also awaiting for the Nokia Lumia 900 if there will be an unlocked version after AT&T intros it.
While the Nokia E6 isn't exactly cutting edge, I do like the overall design of it, and if you're the type who likes Blackberry style phones that are a bit different, that might be the one for me. It's like a Blackberry, but the OS is maybe a bit better, and at least it has a front facing camera (which so far NO Blackberry seems to have). So long as Skype video works on it, it might be an option for me.
8.28Mb/s looks nice. Have you noticed any data capping w/ the T-Mobile chip? I spoke with Straight Talk and the customer service rep said there is no cap (I sense this was a bit of hand waving.)
If this is the case, perhaps this is a better deal than Simple Mobile's $60/month unlimited 4G plan (which uses the T-Mobile) network for those with T-Mobile phones.
