    I apologize if this has been covered, but I tried to search and I'm not clear:

    What is the difference in listings that say "Unlocked" vs. "GSM Unlocked", regarding t-Mobile compatibility?

    Amazon has Model BBB 100-1 listed under "BlackBerry KEYone GSM Unlocked Android Smartphone (AT&T, T-Mobile) - 4G LTE – 32GB"

    Best Buy has Model: PRD-63116-001SKU: 5844003 listed under "BlackBerry® - KEYone 4G LTE with 32GB Memory Cell Phone (Unlocked) - Silver"

    I would go with Amazon, but they are out of stock and 3rd party wants $699 for a new phone.

    Best Buy offers it for $549, but is this the same version as the "GSM Unlocked"?

    BlackBerry KEYone 4G LTE with 32GB Memory Cell Phone (Unlocked) Silver PRD-63116-001 - Best Buy

    Also, I thought I read that for T-Mobile the Model ending in -3 is the version most compatible since T-Mobile has some signal issues as it is.

    Hoping it works out.. I miss a PKB!

    Thanks,
    Rose

    You want the BBB100-1 model for North American GSM carriers like T-Mobile and AT&T. The -3 model is for US CDMA carriers like Verizon and Sprint. The -2 model is for European GSM carriers. Make sure you know which model number you are buying and make sure it is a brand new device.

    Thank you @BB-JAM215.

    So the Best Buy listing that only says "Unlocked" and not "GSM Unlocked" doesn't matter?

    The "4G" tells you it is a GSM phone.
