What if my device only has US LTE band 2 4 and 12?

Europe doesn't use the same bands? This might only benefit those customers with more "global" devices

If your phone only has LTE band 2, 4, and 12, then you wont get LTE. However, if it supports WCDMA 900 or 1800, you will most likely get 3G UMTS / HSPA or 4G HSPA+ service where it is available.

You would need a phone that supports bands 1 (Europe's 2100 band), 3 (1800, or DCS), 7 (2600), & 8 (900) in Europe. T-Mobile/MetroPCS exclusive phones are less likely to support these bands for 3G or 4G LTE. It would essentially require a phone that's made for multiple carriers, & list these bands. Luckily, my Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ supports nearly every band out there, including Band 13 (exclusively a Verizon band on the mainland and Hawaii, though I believe T-Mobile is supporting that band for Canadian carriers more than with Verizon), 17 for areas where T-Mobile still has a roaming agreement with AT&T, and a list of others (too many to list).
