Redmi k30 pro

Hello. I want to buy the redmi k30 pro but wanted to see if at&t will support it's bands.

I am currently using the poco f1 and it works, so I was assuming the k30 will work too.

Yes if you look at At&t bands online you will see what bands at&t uses. Now if you compare those with the bands your phone supports (which you can find online), and the match up somewhat you should be fine. As long as your device supports bands 2 and 5 at least, you should be fine.

@Ninfan644 That would be WRONG.. ATT is not allowing new devices if they don't support VoLTE on to be activated. The phone needs bands 2,4,5,12 at a minimum to work. ATT uses bands 2,4,5,12,17,29,30,66

But the redmi k30 pro does support Volte. I'm not understanding why it won't work.

not on att it doesn't. The phone is not certified by the FCC for use in the usa so att won't allow volte on the phone.

If the phone doesn't work with LTE then won't it work with 4g? Also the k30 is 5g enabled and most of california where I live supports 5g. Would that make a difference?

nope 5g in that phone is not made for the usa and att is only doing 5g on phones it sells right now. 4g is 3g once it's gone you will have no voice calls.

Thank you so much for your help. One last thing. Is there anyway to get a phone verified with att so that it can use volte? If not is there a list of phones that they support?

no att won't support that brand as they don't go thru the FCC. The list is short.

Would I still be able to use data to call or text people through alternative texting apps? Or would wifi only work?

I just spoke to an at&t employee extensively and they told me the only thing that would be affected would be wifi calling. They told me I could still make calls and text inevitably, just not over wifi. They said 3g will go down but that 4g will continue for a long time.

That employee you talked to does not have a clue then. I gave you the official list of supported phones. You phone cant do VoLTE so when 3g goes away so does your voice and text thru your number.

What about 4g? I know that is the official list, the employee I talked too said that the phone not being supported by VOLTE will not affect calls and texts, only wifi calls ect...

you have 3g and LTE that's it. Att calls hspa and hspa+ 4g which they are really 3g. So again that rep had no clue what is what. The phone is not volte compliant and never will be.

Again that list is the only phones that will work once att kills 3g aka 4g(on att). All phones going forward have to be volte compliant.

I stand corrected the first gentlemen that corrected me is 100 percent correct. I wrote that answer in a small amount of time, I do apologize for that. When At&t pulls the plug on 3G, and LTE is being used, you will lose service, I am not an expert so I do not know whether Calling or Texting will continue to work so I don't have any input on that. But I do know that some representatives like the one you spoke with don't seem well educated on these matters. And I can tell you that the other people who are commenting are right, your phone can be used now but soon you must find new options. Sorry for my former response not being well written and hope this helps.

I have now spoken to multiple different att employees and we went over this form together. They said that the info given here is wrong and that the redmi k30 pro will be able to use 4g and 5g to make calls and texts in 2022. I find it hard to believe that multiple employees of att would give me the same information. They even read over this form and told me that the info here was wrong.

I'm sorry but if I have to choose who to believe I have to go with multiple employees of the company.

Thank you both so much for your info and spending time to help me. I really do appreciate it.

If you have any other comments I would love to hear them. Thank you

Good luck with your paper weight. Those reps are wrong period. @lizdance40 please back me up on this one.

There is a reason ATT has a OFFICIAL LIST @derryjbrooks333 those are the ONLY phones that will work once 3g is shut down. I do this for a living and I have had that exact phone and it does not get 5G nor does it have wifi calling. I test phones for a living trust me the phone will be a brick when they turn off 3G.

"Hmm okay. why won't 4g work?"
You mean HSPA+? Or LTE?
AT&T refers to HSPA/HSPA+ as their 3G/4G NETWORK.
LTE is LTE, 5Ge or LTE+ on some devices.

" I'm sorry but if I have to choose who to believe I have to go with multiple employees of the company."
It's up to you you'll get 18 months or less out of it. No skin off us. 🤷🏼‍♀️

When you get your new phone and pop your sim card in, Power It Up, and then make a phone call. If you do not see "VoLTE" in the notification bar, and your phone drops to H or H+, we were right and AT&T reps were wrong. If you don't have it out of the box you will never see it, not from AT&T. You will have to switch to T-Mobile and even then 5G is going to be very unlikely.

BTW, according to the specs you have only one LTE band in common with AT&T, that is band five.
As near as I can tell you will have zero 5G bands in common with AT&T.

We have both posted links already.
@GLIMMERMAN76 to AT&T's list of LTE service bands. And I to the Redmi specs.

I already explained 4G. AT&T "4G" network is really 3G+, and shutting down. (think of AT&T false 5Ge, which is LTE, not even remotely real 5G).
Don't confuse '4G' with LTE.

Fine redmi calls it 4g, it's LTE on at&t
Its 3g or LTE
3g is shutting down.
You have 1 band for '4G' which is LTE
You have zero 5g bands for at&t

One more thing. If what you're saying is true. That means that basically all china made phones won't work anymore. All xiaomi, oppo, realme, different galaxy models, ect... Won't work anymore. Does att have a plan to fix that problem or do they just plan to lose a lot of business?

The poco f1 still has 3g fall back for talk and text, which goes away.
And band 5 only for LTE (as they call it 4g). As @GLIMMERMAN wrote, once 3g shuts down, you have a data only device, no talk or text.

Without At&t VoLTE certification, no, they won't work.
Will At&t fix? Probably not. Not unless they pay for certification like they do with Verizon.

No it wont get 5g as it lacks low band 5g and mmwave tech. Those are set in stone here in the USA.

No they wont most of what tmobile and ATT are doing is low band 5g which is N5 and tmobile is using N71 which overseas phones are not using. If the phone has not passed the FCC I doubt they are going to add cost by using all bands on the planet.

Currently I have the poco f1. What do you think about the poco f2 pro? Its basically the same as the k30 but has 3 LTE bands in common with att, 2,4,5. Would that work better?
