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.

Any place to buy unlock code to use with T-Mobile.
This phone does NOT have the two important bands for T-Mo and their subs: bands 66 and 71. Dont waste your money. The Moto Z3 Play has both as a fyi.

I bought an unactivated AT&T prepaid Moto E4+ from Best Buy last year, and simply put my Cricket SIM in to get going w/o problem. That same week I also requested an unlock from the AT&T website, as a "non AT&T customer". It came through fine in a couple of days. YMMV of course. I should mention my Cricket account had been active about two years at the time, in case that factors in somehow.
Thank you for sharing. Guess carrier policy is updated from time to time.

Updated the Wiki. This model is the XT1921-2.

Short version:
  1. It will work with AT&T or an AT&T MVNO (such as Cricket) out of the box as long as you don't turn it on with the included SIM installed.
  2. It can technically work with TMO, but you may not be able to activate without 6 months of AT&T service.
  3. It almost certainly will not work with Verizon or Sprint, as it lacks the major LTE bands those carriers use.
  4. It should be bootloader unlockable and rootable, per XDA.
Will this phone work in redpocket ATT SIM?

Motorola E6 is currently on sale for $99 on Motorola's site. Going to pick up one as a backup. no need to wait to unlock the bootloader.
There is no wait to unlock the bootloader. As far as you know what you are doing, unlock bootloader, install TWRP and root can be done in few minutes. Bootloader lock is different from carrier lock.

My phone has a micro SIM.

Can I trim the Micro into a Nano like in this video or will the service provider require a different SIM card to be used?

Final price. You either activate the new sim card in the phone or use an already working sim from att. Or I guess you use it only on wifi without phone service like an earlier poster mentioned.
Cricket sims work in AT&T locked phones

It can run COD, but don't expect to play at max. For an online game you definitely need the highest refresh and fps achievable.

Anyone have experience with the Nokia 3.1A for ATT prepaid? https://www.bestbuy.com/site/at-t-prepaid-nokia-3-1-a-with-32gb-memory-prepaid-cell-phone-black/6351377.p?skuId=6351377

My MIL uses this carrier and does basic talk, text, web browsing. The Nokia is more than double the price than this Moto, but more storage and Android 9 out of the box. TIA!

sorry for ignorance how does this perform with fortnite and minecraft mobile?

want to get this for kid so he don't bother me for a pc that can play fortnite.
Minecraft needs something comparable to the 810, so get something with the 636 or higher. Fortnite needs at least an 835 for an enjoyable experience.
