I called ATT today, about lack of an LTE off switch. I also mentioned that the rest of the world has one why did you disable it? And will it ever be re-enabled? His basic answer was “buy a different phone that has that option.” It kind of pissed me off. Why would Nokia and Microsoft let ATT the “exclusive” career (in the US) mess with any of these settings or options? It’s only going to shine a bad light on the hardware company or the OS (poor battery life). So now I will end my rant, here is the work around for LTE (in the US on ATT, everyone else has the option enabled in settings).
Here are the instructions:
• Dial ##3282#
• Select (…) and Settings
• Select 2G and slide ENF to off
• Reboot (hold down power)
Go to Step 2
Now the phone is set up so you can switch it (step 2) as many times as you want until you reboot it, then you need to do Step 1 again.
•Go to dialer and enter ##3282#, it opens the “Data Field Test utility”
•Tap the "three dots" … at the bottom of your screen and tap "settings"
•Change the Network type to:
Automatic = It will chose the best connection. (default)
4g = LTE
3g = 4g (Hspa+)
2g = edge
•The antenna picture will show “no connection” and then reconnect to the chosen option (automatic, 4g, 3g, or 2g)
•NOTE: You can play with the other two settings “at your own risk”.
•Back arrow out to the home screen, and you’re done.
I just made a contact called “AttLTEoff”
Added the ##3282# as the phone number
Then pinned it to my home screen

I hope this helps some people out.
