When the HTC 10 was announced earlier today, it was revealed that the unlocked version of the flagship will work with T-Mobile’s network, including band 12 LTE. What wasn’t clear if it would also support features like Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Wi-Fi Calling. Now that master has been resolved.
Mo Versi, HTC’s VP of Product Management, today confirmed that the unlocked version of the HTC 10 will fully support T-Mobile, including VoLTE and Wi-Fi Calling. You can see Versi’s response for yourself below.

When HTC launched the unlocked One A9 last year, it confirmed that that model would work with T-Mobile VoLTE and Wi-Fi Calling, so it’s not too surprising to learn that the unlocked HTC 10 will, too. It’s good to get confirmation that that’s the case, though, especially since folks that buy the unlocked HTC 10 will be dropping hundreds of dollars to buy their new phone.
If you’d like to pre-order the unlocked HTC 10, you can do so right here. Pricing is set at $699, but if you use the promo code HTC1008, you can knock $100 off that price. The unlocked HTC 10 is expected to begin shipping in early May. The T-Mobile model is also slated to launch in May, but no pricing info has been revealed.
