US Mobile Is Not Authorized To Sell Its Handsets In The U.S.-Confirmed by Xiaomi Officials but US mobile still want to sale

Most of Xiaomi’s handset sales were China, but it has been making a push in emerging markets like India and Brazil. Xiaomi did not have a handset presence in the U.S. until this week when US Mobile –which is a mobile virtual network operator that runs on the T-Mobile network – claimed it would import Xiaomi and Meizu phones for its customers.
However, Xiaomi issued a statement today saying that US Mobile was not authorized to sell its devices. Now the Xiaomi and Meizu devices are no longer listed on US Mobile’sproduct page websiteHere is Xiaomi’s issued statement via The Verge:

According to Xiaomi Statement 
"Xiaomi only offers a small selection of accessories for sale in the US through There are no plans to sell smartphones through any authorized distributors in the US. US Mobile is not authorized to sell Xiaomi products in the US." 

IF it mange to sale then US mobile was the first U.S. carrier to legitimately sell Xiaomi and  phones, based on its relationship with authorized Xiaomi distributors. Late last night, though, T-Mobile and Xiaomi caught on, and they aren't comfortable with US Mobile's promises.
Trying to sell the phones against Xiaomi's command definitely takes the legitimacy out of US Mobile's approach, though, making it look more like a gray market importer even if it's working with an authorized Asian distributor.
 US Mobile's version of the Xiaomi Mi 3,  critically lacks U.S. LTE bands, meaning it will only operate on 3G here in the United States. 
In May 2015, Xiaomi opened up an online store for U.S. and European consumers offering battery packs, headphones and fitness trackers. those products sold out in the U.S. and Europe within 30 minutes of launching. But Xiaomi’s U.S. and Europe stores were part of a beta launch with very limited quantities. Currently, Xiaomi’s 5000mAh Mi Power Bank and Mi Band are out of stock in the U.S. and Europe., but the Mi In-Ear Headphones and Mi Headphones are available in the U.S. for $14.99 and $79.99, respectively.
As of this morning, US Mobile had removed all of the Xiaomi and Meizu phones from its lineup that it had added yesterday
