Probable Sprint model Motorola X Phone passes through the FCC
The Motorola X Phone is popping up more and more these days. It looks like things are on track for the targeted July release, because we've already seen the AT&T variant of the X Phone hit the FCC, and we've seen what appears to be the Verizon model show up in a Motorola driver pack. Now, the Sprint model of the X Phone has passed through the FCC.

The AT&T variant was model number XT1058; the Verizon model showed up as XT1060; and, the Sprint model has shown up in the FCC filing as the XT1056. The device has LTE Band 25, which is only used by Sprint. Interestingly, it also has certification for HSPA+ 21 Mbps on the 850, 1900, and 2100MHz bands, but the documentation says that the device will be SIM-locked for all US carriers. 

Additionally, the XT1056 has certification for NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 Low-Energy and Enhanced Data Rate, and 802.11ac just like we saw with the AT&T model.

I'm curious as to whether or not it will happen. Motorola hasn't put out a phone on T-Mobile in over 2 years.

Fair enough. I believe the last was the Cliq 2 in January of 2011.

i sure hope it will.
i imagine if there is one it would either be the XT1058 same as the AT&T model or a XT1054 because they all seem to only be differentiated by two numbers and it's likely Verizon will get the top one.

Well, it probably won't be the same as the AT&T model. They don't have all the requisite bands for T-Mobile's LTE network.

Photon was a great phone when it came out and as usual Motorola's radios yielded much better reception that Samsung and HTC.

Obviously, comparing it now to a new smartphone is crazy, technology has moved so fast since the Photon and Moto has stood still waiting to clear their product pipeline to allow Google to begin working on product design.

The fact that you are with sprint and have the photon q still shows that you don't try technology much. I am with verizon and get every new droid when they come out. I had droid x2 , than RAZR m and now RAZR HD. Never had an issue with these amazing Motorola devices. My mother , brother and sister all have the original droid RAZR and still have no issues with theirs. If you are pulling the battery that much than your downloading bad apps. And p.s. I have worked as a tech in the mobile industry for several years so I work with all phones and all OS.
