Hi, I am looking to buy a new unlocked Galaxy Note 2 to use on the Solavei/T-Mobile network. I live in Manhattan, NYC but like to travel and wondering if I buy the international version N7100 what is the fastest speed I can get in NYC? 4G?

What about the N7105?

Or the T889 from T-Mobile? Will this work well overseas?

What is the difference between these models in regards to T-Mobile data speed in NYC and general use overseas?

Thanks in advance!

Unlock T-Mobile version and get advantage of Wi-Fi calling to save you from roaming.

I wonder if wifi calling will work from European ip addresses? That will allow to call USA practically for free. Anyone can comfirm that. Doesn't Tmobile sim need to be installed for wifi calling to work?

Is there a difference in battery life between T889 and N7100 since the former uses the LTE network? I'm fine with H+ as long as I can get 5 Mbps down...

I'm not sure if I care about the Wifi calling since I will have unlimited calls on my plan, and will mostly be using it in Manhattan, sometimes Brooklyn, and other major US cities like Miami and LA so don't think I need to worry about roaming too much...right?

Yes, I have done it in Mexico and France as long as you have T-mobile sim.
