    Hi all,

    I recently moved to the US-Mexico border and would like to switch to T-Mobile to take advantage of their free international data and texting when on the Mexico side. I currently have an ATT iPhone 6 that is under contract and is locked to the ATT network. I visited the T-Mobile store today and they informed me that even if I cancel my contract with ATT and have them unlock the phone, that it will still not be able to take advantage of the full speed of the T-Mobile LTE network.

    This sounded strange to me as I was under the impression that the ATT and T-Mobile phones were identical and would work on all the same frequencies. Can anyone confirm that the information I was given is correct?

    Thanks all!

    The reps at the store are idiots. Just unlock the phone and put in the T-Mobile sim.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Clueless reps.
    Same exact thing. It will work fine since it's fully compatible with all T-Mobile used bands.

    I paid for my T-Mobile 6 Plus out right, switched to ATT, and it works great.
