    Ok, so I never owned a LTE device. When I got the phone I had and still have 4G. My friend told me "4G isn't LTE". Well I know my market has LTE (Orlando, fl att) so is this my phone or Att screwing with me?

    If your signal says 4G you are on the HSDPA+ network. if you are on LTE it will say LTE. At least on ATT.

    The signal indicator will actually say "LTE" when you're in an LTE area.

    4G is not LTE. There is a significant difference in speed.

    When i first got my phone, i put in my existing LTE sim from my 900 to the 920, i had lte for a couple days but rarely, i use to get it all the time in my area. Then i stopped getting LTE altogether.

    So i called ATT, they had to refresh my profile and now i got LTE back pretty much every area that has LTE, so i would call ATT if you are on ATT and tell them you cant get LTE in my area. You should lie to them and say you use to get it, so they cant come back to you and say "well, you are probably not in an LTE area"
