T-Mobile doesn’t restrict customers to phones they sell. You can buy a Sony phone and use it on T-Mobile. According to GSMarena.com, Sony only makes 3 phones with band 71.

It won't happen because Sony sucks.  The US Xperia mark I, II, III, and IV are all crippled.  They can't work correctly on T-Mobile, among other problems.  The US mark III could be fixed by unlocking the bootloader.  The current mark IV series is crippled and can't be unlocked.

Ultimately, it’s sales that drive what is abailable.  Even with T-Mobile being the second largest carrier in the US, they still sell less Samsung devices than AT&T, the third largest US carrier.  Sony really isn’t that popular in North America for cellular devices and it isn’t financially practical to buy a bulk order of devices to get a deal on them to have them not sell to most of the customer base.
