Will this phone XIAOMI REDMI NOTE 10 5G 128 GB Graphite Gray Dual SIM support a prepaid T Mobile SIM card please? This is for the Palm Springs, California area if this makes a difference. Thank you!

It will support the sim but how good it works depends on the bands of the phone.

For 5G, it supports N41 and N66.  N41 is basically old sprint only area towers that have been repurposed.  Whether or not your area has any N66 deployment, I have no idea.  For 4G, it supports bands 2, 4, 12, 41, and 66.  The issue there is though, BYOD’s must support T-Mobile’s implementation of VoLTE to work.  Being a Chinese phone, it more than likely does not.  My old Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 did, but that was the last Xiaomi device I purchased and it was flashed to the global firmware.  Things have changed a lot since the SD845.

Thank you both for the additional information. I’m actually researching for a friend. Once I have his 15 digit ID number, I’ll check against the compatibility list.

I am also considering to buy a xiaomi phone, can you tell me the results of your check on compatibility?
