I live in Mesa Arizona 85205. Both my Verizon Samsung Note 10 Plus and my iPhone XR are 4G LTE phones.

If those bands are on the phones you should get them.

Yes both phones support 600 MHz/Band71. I was just wondering if the fact that i got the phones from Verizon, would make it a problem.

The only things I would worry about is WiFi calling and VoLte.

Will t-mobile store sales folks even know what Volte is? I will probably need to explain it and make sure i get both Volte and Wifi Calling.  Volte is a must!!!

Just make sure that they register your E911 address.

There’s an app to check the VoLte. It’s in this article.

Is there an IOS app to check for VoLte on an iPhone?

If your Samsung doesn't support T-Mobile's VoLTE and WiFi Calling, you could always visit XDA Developers to find instructions on how to convert your device to the U1 firmware or go a step further and convert it to the TMB U firmware.  There is no difference in the hardware for all US and Canadian models of Samsung devices.  It's the firmware and software that make them slightly different.
