Default Sprint S5 on T-Mobile Network

Son-in-law switched from Sprint to T-mobile last night. Apparently, he kept his same phone with just the SIM changed out.
Kinda curious what if any issues he might have using it on T-Mobile.

Chatting with him on hangouts, he said that he has yet to see LTE but he has been in the office all day and hasn't moved around much yet.

I know that he would not have WiFi calling as that would require a T-Mobile rom but, I couldn't find much info searching...

Sprint LTE use band 25, 26, and 41 where as Tmobile use LTE band 2, 4, and soon 12. Sprint phones have none of the LTE bands of other gsm carriers.
