Lycamobile Handset Compatibility
You must check phone compatibility and service coverage before you activate or port your number to Lycamobile. You must have T-Mobile or unlocked GSM handset to use Lycamobile sim card. Lycamobile is a T Mobile MVNO that mean If you have T mobile phone then you don't have to unlock the phone otherwise your phone must be unlocked.
T-Mobile uses the 1900 Mhz band for GSM (voice) and EDGE (2G) and UMTS (3G) data. It uses the 1700 (AWS) band for UMTS (3G) data rather than 1900 Mhz in some markets.
For LTE, T-Mobile uses bands 2 (1900), 4 (1700), 12 (700 a,b,c) and 66 (1700 Mhz). T-Mobile's primary LTE band is band 4. Band 2 is deployed in former 2G only non-urban areas where T-Mobile doesn't have any band 4 spectrum. In some, maybe all, of these band 2 only LTE markets, 3G is not offered, only 2G and LTE.
