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.

Bought this right now, installed my Cricket Sim in it and it runs like a dream. I highly recommend getting a micro SD card and installing that to expand memory. Get this if you need a phone for Cricket.
And people want a non- kid phone.

I believe Consumer Cellular runs on AT&T.
Will this phone work if I put a Consumer Cellular into it?
How about an H₂O SIM?

Nice use for the gift cards that I got from trading in a couple free Echo Dots that had laying around the other week.

These deals are nice as wifi devices for kids. Load up some kid friendly apps/games and some music or videos. Work great for things like car trips.

Does anyone know if this will work on Black Wireless which uses AT&T towers etc?
Black Wireless got all of the AT&T Android updates on my current phone.
