Not 100% certain, but based on this T-Mobile support thread, it looks like it would only give you 2G, not 3G/4G based on the GSM frequencies.

As for the 3G frequencies listed, I don't think T-Mobile supports them at all based on their listed bands here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-Mobil...spectrum_chart

So it looks like you would be stuck with 2G only (which is horrible, I can assure you). I'm sure the international version will work on T-Mobile properly with 4G. We just have to wait for it to become available.

It looks like Aliexpress now has the 3GB/32GB version on sale for $600-646.

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Origi...037325619.html

It lists the bands in two places, and i'm not sure why they don't seem to be the same.

Near the top it lists:
2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz
3G: WCDMA(UMTS) 850/900/1900/2100MHz
4G: FDD-LTE B1(2100MHz)/B3(1800MHz); TDD-LTE: B41(2555~2575MHz)

Towards the bottom it shows:
2G: GSM / GPRS / EDGE: SIM1: 850/900/1800 / 1900MHz, SIM2: 900/1800 / 1900MHz
3G: TD-SCDMA: Band34 / 39; WCDMA / HSPA + / DC-HSDPA: 850/900/1900 / 2100MHz; DC-HSPA + 42Mbps: Band1
4G: TD-LTE: Band38 / 39/40/41 (100MHz), LTE FDD: Band1 / 3/7

That link also shows a release date of 2013, a thickness of <9mm and a few other details that show they don't have fully accurate info. I would be cautious.

I have found it so far on 6 sites in China, without fail the specs they all list are contradictory to each other. I think it's a matter of a bad cut/paste job. For example, I went to one site and it said it was for the 3Gb model yet, the specs below that in the list of specs said:

ROM 16GB/32GB

So, I wrote to them, I don't think they know themselves.

Also, a lot of sites are taking "pre-orders" and putting that the wait time is 30-45 days. Be careful about that if you're looking to get this sooner rather than later. I think it's a matter of getting the money collected and then buying as many units as they can and shipping them out one-at-a-time as needed based on sales. I don't see what they're doing as sinister, they're trying to cash in the latest hot new toy in demand. I figure they're hoping to make as many sales before the real inventory hits the stores and the prices "may" come down. I think I'll wait a while and see what else shakes out in terms of issues with the devices once it hits the wild.

Aliexpress isn't really a random Chinese site. It's part of Alibaba. I've bought items from them before. Nothing as expensive as a phone, but I'm pretty sure they're legit.

Isn't it the Chinese version of eBay?

I haven't used Ebay in a long time, but I think Aliexpress is more like the Chinese version of Amazon. You don't really bid in an auction, it's just a marketplace for sellers.
