Are there any wifi bulbs that work with T Mobile wireless internet besides the Hue lights?  I have 3-4 different kinds but the only ones working since I switched over to T Mobile wifi are the hue lights?

You can probably connect your bulbs if you add a dedicated 2.4GHz network to your setup.  

Some devices cannot connect to the gateway’s default network.  You want to leave this network alone and ADD a second network with the + sign at the bottom of the Network tab in the T-Mobile Internet app.  For this new network, set the band to 2.4 GHz and set the WPA version to WPA/WPA2.  Try connecting your bulbs to this second network.  Use the default network for your other devices, as much as possible.

Here are the T-Mobile support instructions for how to add the second network with the app.
