T-Mobile lists the frequencies as:

GSM bands 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
UMTS: Band I(2100)
UMTS: Band II(1900)
UMTS: Band IV(1700/2100/AAWS)
UMTS: Band V(850)
LTE Band: 4, 17

HTC web site unlocked lists:

GSM/GPRS/EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
HSPA/WCDMA: 850/1900/2100 MHz
LTE: 700/850/AWS/1900 MHz (US)

I'm not sure how to compare these. It looks like UTMS Band IV 1700 is listed on the tmo version and not the unlocked one.

However, I have to stick with what I ordered, since I am getting a $100 trade up credit for my Optimus Elite... unless I hang out some more, cancel my order and hope they have a special again. If it doesn't work in my area, I'll just return it for a refund. I think the web site said you have 30 days.
