The model for this phone is XT1921-2. The clearest, most concise spec listing I can find is at the Republic Wireless site: https://help.republicwireless.com...Tech-Specs

This phone should be bootloader unlockable and rootable, per XDA:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/...m-t3820901
https://forum.xda-developers.com/...d-t3856182

LTE bands supported: 1,2,3,4,5,8,12,14,17,30,66

Clearly, it works fully with AT&T, Cricket, and other AT&T MVNOs. As long as you do not power on the phone with included SIM, it should activate just fine on any AT&T MVNO.

This lacks band 13 - which is Verizon's 4G LTE backbone - so it almost certainly will not work with Verizon or Verizon MVNOs.

This lacks bands 25, 26, and 41, so it almost certainly will not work with Sprint.

It does have main TMO LTE bands (2,4,12), so it should technically work with TMO or a TMO MVNO, but activation outside of AT&T or an AT&T MVNO will almost certainly require 6 months of AT&T service before it can be unlocked for that purpose. Still, if you have TMO and pick up this phone, please try and let us all know!

Same price in stores.

What if I buy the phone and it doesn't have the apps I need in the play store? Can I return to Best Buy for full refund even though box is open?
ETA: (Messaged them and I have 15 days to return for full refund even if opened)

Anyone that owns the phone now know if these apps are available in the Play Store? Thanks.

Would love to hear the results if anyone tried putting an activated cricket sim in an "activate later" phone.
if you have an active Cricket sim, you can just pop it into this phone and use it, no unlock required

Nice phone to have as a back up in case your phone breaks. You always say I do not need a back up until you do.

I have an activated byod Tracfone sim on AT&T. I wonder if it would work on this phone. I know it works on a Tracfone branded phone on AT&T (LG Sunset) and of course on an unlocked AT&T phone. Tempted to buy one just to find out.

That's not a concern here. That only matters when the carrier is an mvno or Sprint/TMO.

2800 mAh battery. Not the biggie that lasts for 3 days.
But it's replaceable, so you could carry an extra battery with you if you want.
