buying the note 4 off contract?

T-mobile are a GSM carrier, so should be no problem, just put your SIM in. You can buy a new unlocked Note 4 direct from Samsung or Expansys or something, but you'll be paying full retail rather than T-mobile subsidised price. T-mobile won't let you have a subsidised phone without signing a new contract. Ebay might be a possiblity, but you may to be careful of IMEI blacklisting or counterfeits.
