No need to apologize, it's an 835 phone for 200ish is good, and it should work depending on what's used in the area

Comletely wrong as band 17 is AT&T's main band and 12 might as well be consider T-Mobile main band at this point with 71 taking over as the recommended but not completely necessary band.

Buying a phone without 12/17 in 2018 going into 2019 is just asking for trouble imo.

Well that's definitely not true in major cities, which are still predominantly using 2/4 (at least in mine), I don't know about yours.

Which major city is still predominantly using 2/4?


They're moving on to band 14/66/ and 71, bands 2/4 are practically dinosuar bands at this point, especially in major cities where they're a lot of network congestions.

Yeah, but go inside a building like a hospital and you'll lose signal. Bands 2 and 4 are higher frequencies for faster internet but it doesn't propogate very far. Bands 12, 17, and 71 are low band, penetrate walls, concrete, etc but slower internet

This is a VERY nice phone for $230.

However, without LTE bands 12 and 17, not to mention 66 and 71, it will have limited usefulness in the US.

In a lot of areas that I frequent, T-Mobile almost always connects to band 12.

Not in half of San Francisco, or pretty much all of Oakland now.
