If those bands listed are correct, it should work. The only missing band I see is B30 and that isn't critical. 2/4/5/12/17 should give adequate coverage.

🐾 I don’t work for AT&T or any carrier. Never have, never will. My replies are based on experience and reading content available on the website. If you posted personal information, please edit and remove.
according to here the official site for device this device supports 2/4/5 for lte will i still get good coverage https://www.mi.com/global/redmi-note-8-pro/specs
im actually on cricket but im guessing the same rules apply to cricket cause they are owned by att i dont buy my phones at cricket or any retail store because i dont want to be locked to there network and i was already kind of frustrated that byod phones on cricket and att dont get voice over lte even if its supported by the device like you said about your oneplus when i had t-mobile i basically could bring any volte compatible device that supported it and it would just work without a problem even if it was missing some bands
lizdance "You are not understanding.
Please understand that things are changing and having all LTE bands is not going to give you voice service. AT&T must recognize the phone IMEI and it must be capable of voice over LTE.
@lizdance40 you are not understanding. You have not researched the Redmi Note 8 Pro. The global version (at least) IS voice over LTE capable, and you can enable and disable this feature. Not getting AT&T to recognize imei is just making sure it's in their database. Worse just tell them to add it but they should have it unless they don't understand the same as you didn't.
(taken from AT&T websites)
"With headquarters in New Delhi/NCR region, AT&T has operated from India since the 1980s."
"AT&T has been in China for more than 30 years. AT&T China has strong technical expertise with branch offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Tianjin and Shenzhen."
..."With this sale, the company received press coverage when their flagship Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G phone sold out in 6 seconds"
"Xiaomi released its first smartphone in August 2011 and rapidly gained market share in China to become the country's largest smartphone company in 2014"
" The Wall Street Journal reported that in the second quarter of the 2014 fiscal year, Xiaomi had a market share of 14% of smartphone shipment rankings in China. Redmi sales were attributed as a contributing factor toward this gain in shipment rankings."
So Xiaomi being the largest manufacturer of phones, well known, and as famous as the Note 8 pro is, it is AT&T own fault if they don't support for purposefully being ignorant/blind. I am sure many people have called with this phone and asked for service, in America and abroad (the Note 8 pro is/was the #1 selling phone in India, and i'm sure other places)
the problem is americans are jipped by those with the biggest marketing and stocks: eg apple, samsung. When Xiaomi has hardware far superior for far less ... $225 Xiaomi better than the $1000 Samsung Galaxy Note 10+... Xiaomi already got stuff better than the Note 20, just need a Xiaomi unit with the new Corning Victus.
Your not understanding att does not support the phone. They won't whitelist the phone. Att has a list of unlocked phones that will work. The OEM you are talking about is not on it.
🤦🏼♀️ You didn't understand a thing.
The key words, "not on AT&T" just didn't register. And AT&T will not white list the IMEI. They never have. All they accept is a small list of compatible phones. None of that brand, among many brands with no US warranty. Even the non US version of Samsung will not work on AT&T VoLTE.
This list has not been updated in 6 months, but it's still a good guide what to buy, and what not to buy.
Note Huawei, the number 1 volume manufacturer in the world, only has 2 phones, both made for AT&T, that made the list. So it doesn't matter how many phones at what price point.
We just bought the Redmi Note 8 pro, and had a lot problems for connecting to ATT new work... After more than a week moving forward and back, we got a really nice support lady from ATT, she helped a lot (both setting the phone, and talking to the technical staff). And finally, boom! It works!
In short, it is problematic with a phone not on Whitelist, but it works!
How can we improve?
