    It's not a supported device, so you'll have to figure it out on your own or live with it not working, unfortunately.
    Perhaps post at XDA and see if anyone has it working. Some developers ported the...

    If you have strong B4/B66 where you'll use it then no concerns.
    Without VoLTE you may not get access to B13 (and B71 that's launching soon), which are the long range bands that offer best coverage....

    That term message did not exist until the last year or so - your old plan would not have those terms.

    The grandfathered plan is also valuable if you have other lines as it's valid for BTS - new...

    The bonuses, i.e. "free" phone do require new plans.
    You can still get a device on tab without bonus, just equal payment plan essentially, on your existing rate plan (what Kevin describes).

    Yes, that's what I'm suggesting they might do. If they win big at the auction, launch 71 on 5G, or some in 4G, some in 5G (Eastern would likely need all 4G, very limited bandwidth currently).

    Even if you have the VoLTE settings, there is still a server-side provisioning/authorization you require. Not sure if that's account/SIM level, IMEI level, or device model level.
