Need a replacement phone, wondering if the 6p/5x work fine on the 3g network. I don't have an LTE capable SIM and I don't believe I'm eligible to get one as I'm on a legacy student plan. If anyone has either of these phones, do you find the reception decent? I've been using a Nexus 5 for years and it's been pretty good.

Hey there DanDanDanDan
Generally any wireless device that is sold in North America will usually work on our network, however the specific requirements are the device has to be WCDMA capable (HSPA) and work on the 850/1900 bands.  I took a look at the 2 devices you mentioned and both are compatible, so you should be good to go.
