Zenfone 9 is no good to me on T-Mobile

Star I
I purchased this phone because it's a great product and I thought that since I was buying the US version it would work perfect because it has all the bands. I've come to find out that on T-Mobile it's missing three out of the four 5G bands. Now I know why I keep dropping calls and people can't hear me if I would have known it did not have all the bands because I trusted Asus to include those, then I would not have purchased. This phone. Is no good to me. I had to buy a pixel pro 7 and it works perfectly on T-Mobile and it has all the bands are required to work in the United States on T-Mobile. I'm very disappointed with ASUS

It actually is missing four of the five 5G bands. That's really sorry
