The seller clearly listed the bands that it supported which matched the TW version for Taiwan. They ended up shipping me the WW version that added a couple more. TMobile needs AWS band 4- might also be called (4)1900. AT&T uses a lot of the same band but supplements with one of the 700Mhz bands so you may or may not get LTE on AT&T. I am on a T-mo MVNO, Walmart Family Mobile and my Zenfone 2 gets a solid 14-16Mbs (capped by the way but for 3GB of LTE for $40 a month, I don't care) with decent reception. Get the WW version if you only want T-mo or wait for the US model for full AT&T LTE coverage even though the HSPA+ is still pretty damned fast.

Personally as i am in Spain i waited for the European version to arrive in France as i did not want the hassle of warranty issues or different 4G bands etc - IMHO it is always best to wait and buy the phone that is specifically launched for your own region - otherwise and especially with long distance sellers you may have very expensive after sales problems should the phone develop a fault !
20-20 hindsight. Was AliExpress a legitimate deal from a legitimate company?This was a deal linked from AA . This deal was for the 64gb version, after hunting around the 64 is harder to find than the common 32gb. After setting up to buy this phone last minute research caused me to bail due to questions of the legitimacy of the site offering the special.there seems to be 5 versions of the phone location oriented, China, Taiwan, us, European, and worldwide, any suggestions on identifying these characteristics? It would seem the European and the China don't work in the US. there also seems to be two versions of the four gigabyte at 2.3 or 1.8 quad core.the intent is to use this phone with solavei which uses t mobile towers in the US.
friends .. can i use zenfone 2 551ml flipcover for 550ml phone ?? is there any compatibility problem ?
Rony1234, 07 May 2015Has anyone installed the latest Asus update on the Zenphone 2 ? What is the Android version ... moreIts still on Android 5.00 until all the initial bugs are fixed then it will be upgraded to a later Android version - it is very important to install the update as it has fixes for battery life and other system improvements that make the phone run a lot better !

Android, like any linux-like OS, will use all the RAM it has available for caches and temporary data. These caches should give way to user programs that are launched, and a low "free RAM" number only means your OS is taking advantage of the memory available.
Again - If you don't have an out of memory error or crash, ignore the amount of free RAM.

Or move to France and get headphones included but pay a higher price for the phone - you cannot have it both ways good price and extras included as well !
