    My guess would be it would not be too different from India built Keyone which was known to work in North America.

    Probably not since most of the world uses GSM not CDMA

    Evolve/Evolve X bands from GSM Arena:

    2G bands: GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 - SIM 1 & SIM 2 (dual-SIM model only)
    3G bands: HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1700(AWS) / 1900 / 2100
    4G bands: LTE
    Speed: HSPA, LTE
    GPRS: Yes
    EDGE: Yes

    Not sure what the LTE bands are as all it says is "LTE" but it looks like it'll run on 3G on at least T-Mobile in the USA and Freedom in Canada.

    Just speculation on my part, but if you can find what the supported bands are for Optiemus' Dual-sim Black Edition KEYone they released a while back...it'll probably be the same.

    Like driving 70s UK legal version Jaguar in rural Western Kansas and expecting parts and repairs to be partially good, if that’s what you mean.

    I'm a bit new to the specs game, so bear with me, but if t-mobile uses band 4 and 12 primarily, and it runs with 4, that's still not good enough?

    Your down to AT&T and T-Mobile... if they'll allow it (probable will - but no guarantee until someone tries). But you are missing bands for each, and in some areas you might find yourself without less than ideal coverage.

    But you'll be own your on when it comes to support or warranty... there won't be any.

    If you have money to blow, or just want them as personal collectibles... go for it.

    I checked via phone with the T-Mobile Blackberry (so-called expert.... far from it....) agent, and he confirms that the North American version of the Key2 (BBF100-1) has all the necessary bands, as does the BBF100-6 (Int'l Dual SIM), to work on the T-Mo network. He was even surprised as to the plethora of bands these things offer. However, the new 600mhz band that they are currently rolling out (Band 71), is not available, but most phones do not have Band 71 yet and T-Mo is still just in the preliminary stages of rolling this out. The real question is whether VoLTE and WiFi calling features will work with the Dual SIM phone in the States? This is the issue we had with the Dual SIM KeyOne variant from India, all worked fine EXCEPT WiFi Calling and VoLTE, which I definitely need, especially when using my phone in planes or don't want to pay for roaming in the expensive countries.

    You talk a lot about the KEY2....

    Did you ask the T-Mobile "expert" about the KEY2 or about the Evolve?

    Key2 - specifically the BBF100-6

    It's important to note that I asked him about WiFi Calling and VoLTE features on the BBB100-7 KeyOne as well, and he stated the same thing. Therefore, even though I confidently suspect that the BBF100-6 will work with T-Mo in the States (possibly AT&T), I doubt that these two features will be operational, same as our past experience with the Dual SIM KeyOne.

    That said, we're back to square one. Someone has to actually purchase a BBF100-6 to the States and try it out and see If those two features will work. The Bands on the Dual SIM Key2, as with the Dual SIM KeyOne, do show it will work. We currently have 2 or 3 members on this forum using the India Dual SIM KeyOne's in CA and NYC with AT&T and T-Mo just fine... albeit, with no WiFi Calling or VoLTE.
