    Greetings,

    I have come into possession of a brand new Keyone Bronze Edition, BBB-100-5, PRD 63736-017 with default language Spanish. Some questions:

    1. What bands does this version of the BBB-100-5 support?

    2. From this thread, learned that there are multiple versions of the BBB-100-5:

    Also here:

    What more can the experts here say about this version?

    3. Has anyone (besides @SebastienP) had any experience getting this version working on US T-Mobile and with WiFi calling? See also

    Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.

    Only the -002 variant is Chinese. Yours is considered an international version.

    Int'l model is missing NA bands 12, 19, 29, 30, 39, and 41.

    Many thanks. This phone is missing NA band 12. How will this affect operation with T-Mobile?

    Also, do you have a link to some resource that gives a list of the bands supported by this model?

    The affect will vary by geographic region. Band 12 is one of the primary TMO bands, but there are still 2 other primary bands that it DOES support.

    BBB100-2 and -5 support the same bands.

    So using a Bronze KEYone in the US would give you the same coverage quality as any European BBB100-2 basically

    Is there a resource - such as a map - that will allow one to see which band(s) is (are) being used by T-Mobile in a particular region?

    Here we go:

    "Try downloading an app called LTE Discovery on your current phone to see what bands are in your area."
