T-mobile mainly uses band 4 in metro area, and this phone supports it. It is the band 12 people are questioning about.

Very interested in this deal. But after doing some quick research, this looks like it's the china version and it looks like you can't relock bootloader after flashing to the global rom.
Just FYI. http://en.miui.com/thread-3369398-1-1.html
Feel free to correct me if I am wrong. I would be more than happy to spend some money on this phone if that's the case.

It is a good phone, but buyers need to know the following.

1. The Chinese version does not support Google Play. No Play store access.
2. You can flash the Global rom and get Google Play, but you have to keep the bootloader unlocked. Meaning no Android Pay and problems with bank apps.
3. No warranty.

If you don't care about 2, then it is a good phone at an amazing price.
Or use Magisk like a proper human being and use any Google apps. It's just a google search away.

It says this is fulfilled by Joy Collection. Is Joy Collection affiliated with JoyBuy, or is it a third party seller?

A proper human being will know Magisk is a bandage fix to bypass the security checking. It works until the security checking of the apps detects it and closes the loophole. Then Magisk will need to update to cheat the security checking. It is a cat and mouse game.

Where did you see that? I've searched for Tmobile volte/ wifi calling and this phone, and I can't find anything that says it works or not. Links please? Confused

Look for the list of certified band 12 phones on T-Mobile's website. If it's not there then you won't have band 12.
