Here is the quick list of which 5G band(s) in your A71 5G:

SM-A716UZKNATT= Att= N2(1900),N5(850),N66(AWS-3)
SM-A716UZKNTMB= Tmobile= N2(1900),N66(AWS-3),N71(600), N41(2500)
SM-A716UZKNSPR= Sprint= N2(1900),N66(AWS-3),N71(600), N41(2500)
SM-A716UZKNUSC= UScellular= No official data from Samsung

Here is the quick list of which 5G band each carrier uses:

One of 2 known ways,
- Sign up for a T-Mobile Postpaid plan and stay with the network for 2 bill cycles. ($60 a month minimum for a single-line, or lesser if in group plan)
- Sign up for a T-Mobile Prepaid plan and load at least $100 credit.

Alternatively, you could use this phone with one of many T-Mobile MVNOs, without having to unlock it at all. Compatibility with the following networks are not verified by me personally.
Eg. Mint (verified by another user), Metro by T-Mo, Redpocket - TMo, Tracfone - TMo, Ting LTE - there are a lot of options out there.

One part I'm unsure about is whether this handset would also work with Sprint and Sprint-MVNOs (Eg. Tello) due to the T-Mobile - Sprint merger. I wouldn't count on it, but would consider it an added bonus if it does.

It took me 24 hrs to unlock it after requesting it to be unlocked from T-mobile. You do not need to be a TMobile customer to unlock it, and you do not need a T-Mobile sim card.

I sent a message on Facebook to T-Mobile (search on "TMobile Facebook" on Google, the first link is their official Facebook page). I gave the IMEI #, my contact #, and copy/pasted the order email from Samsung. It took 24 hrs for it to be unlocked (you do it via settings in the phone).

I did not put in any sim card before unlocking. I just connected it to wifi, which is required to unlock it via settings.

I am using it on Cricket, great phone so far.

- SLICKDEALS100 (Takes $100 off, Posted by OP)
- BLACKFRIDAY50REV (Gives a $50 Samsung credit on purchase, rather than $30 otherwise without it)
- <referral coupon> from another Samsung account (Only for first purchase)

Also,
- Trade-in: You can trade in ANY smartphone for $75, easy discount not to be missed. If you don't have any old dispensable phone, you could find one from family, friends or eBay.
- Cancellation trick: YMMV, but usually Samsung offers a 10% refund back to CC if you agree to NOT cancel your order.
- A clickthrough cash-back service of your choice pays a rebate.

Note: Educational discount does not seem to apply for this phone. Some users have reported success in CS compensating them for this not applying. In other instances, CS flatly refuses saying this promotion does not apply for this model.

Chat with Product Experts in Samsung Website Product Page requesting them to provide any promotional codes. They offered $20 which is stackable with $100 off codes. But you cannot apply two 100$ off coupons.

Use code 5D7IP4TT68 to discount the phone further by $20. The deal is even sweeter today (11/30) as the Samsung credit on purchase is now $100, rather than 30.
Use following codes for max discount -
1. $100 off on device - SLICKDEALS100 or LZ7PAN9TG8 (cyber monday code) - Both cannot be stacked.
2. Additional $20 off on device - 5D7IP4TT68
3. Additional $20 off on samsung credit (making it $120)- BLACKFRIDAY50REV

5g is not mainstream yet and you could probably get similar offer with next years phone with XR. I would definitely in if it was cheap iphone 7 or something.

Grabbed the deal for 216 with tax w/ buds+, w trade in of iPhone 6s. For everyone that wants to know about trade ins if your phone isn't on the list they probably won't accept it and if it has any damage or problems they may charge you the amount you were quoted so make sure it's a solid working phone you are trading in.

Use the education discount on the phone, re add to cart add other item then use the SLICKDEALS100 and BLACKFRIDAY50REV
Comes out to $55 if I trade in an old iPhone 7 Plus I have laying around.
Can confirm!

I tweeted at them and gave them my IMEI via DMs.

Didn't even take 72 hours.

W trade in of a burner phone and sd code its 199, slick!! Even less w educational discount etc.
**update**
Samsung trade in scam is in full effect, my burner was rejected for invalid reasons. Always use a virtual cc or a card you can turn off so Samsung doesn't charge back. Unwarranted rejections left and right if you read latest comments.

I have using Pixel 3A right now. It is like brand new. If I trade in, I get A71 for $95.

Is it worth switching?

I'd keep it. Trade in a throw away android phone for $75 trade in value. Pixel 3a should sell for above $200 I would think.

Thanks. That make sense. I didn't notice "any smartphone" option before and thought only Apple or Google phone can be traded.
