    Actually, it is impossible task to list all the phones which can work with tzone.
    Some principles to help you to get a phone working with tzone with compatible 4G LTE bands (B2/B4/B12, or enhanced with B5/B66/B71).

    1.Most phones are not sold for US market are likely working with tzone .
    2.None T-mobile branded phones have high chance to work with tzone.
    3.Most iPhones are working well with tzone.
    4.The brand not sold from US carriers' channels , most likely works with tzone, such XiaoMi, Blu, LeEco etc.
    5.Most dual-SIM phones are working well with T-Mobile t-zone

    I'm remember the days of T-zones. I wonder how many people still have this plan. I remember back in 2015 when I switched off T-zones it was getting harder and harder to find phones that worked on T-zones and had all the T-mobile bands.

    From your signature, that LS997 is a great phone for tzone.
    Once awhile, it was hard to get a phone with full T-Mobile LTE bands with B4/B12/B2.
    Nowadays, more and more phones are working with tzone, almost all phones support B2/B4/B12.
    More and more people not purchased phones from the carriers, there are plenty phones from the open market than your carrier

    I still have tzones in one line. I previously had Xperia’s on it, but VoLTE and WiFi calling is never guaranteed so I jumped to iphone. I miss being able to tether. Might be time to switch to PAU?

    Do you have a family plan? If so, you may want to give them a call and see if that's still an option.

    I do! I spoke to them in Sept and they said it was still possible, but they didn’t want to touch it in case something bad happens. Tethering doesn’t seem to work on my other lines with PAU though? I forget if it was enabled a couple years ago. I’m ok with it for now since I’ve resigned myself to an iphone.

    I added a new voice line to my old family 1000 plan, called 611 and successfully added $5 Preferred unlimited web

    I think the iPhone has its own tethering check built in to see if the plan you have authorizes it. That's probably why the iPhone won't permit it, when some Android devices still may.

    That's great to know that they're still allowing people to add it.

    This thread makes me wish I still had that $9.95 per month DT-MCSA plan.

    I got rid of it to make a couple hundred bucks during my more impulsive days. What was I thinking?
    “The Internet wasn’t meant to be metered in bits and bytes, so it’s insane that wireless companies are still making you buy it this way. The rate plan is dead — it’s a fossil from a time when wireless was metered by every call or text.” John Legere 1/5/2017

    Thanks. That is a voice plan.
    Nowadays not many people is still interested in voice plan. All needs unlimited data as the beloved tzone...
    I personally use Google voice for all inbound/outbound calls. My grandfathered family 1000, I never used over 200 mins
