    I think I am using the same SIM card I cut down to fit the 1520 when that was released, I was using the card for the Nexus 5 briefly, not sure when I got the SIM card, but it might have been new for the N5.
    I initially setup the 950 XL with no SIM card in it, I did a factory reset after the first update, but I don't remember if the SIM card was in the phone for the next setup.
    I never called ATT to activate the 950 XL, nor did I have to manually set my APN.
    The LTE icon is on my top bar. I have not run any speed tests, but real usage has been acceptable.

    Have you tried the (free version is fine) Netcheck app, to see what it shows as your rate/type?

    I've never had the 4G problem, except if you count the lack of VoLTE. I've done a fair number of resets (early on), a couple of SIM replacements, and other random stuff with regards to cell connectivity. I figured I'd hit this, at some point (okay, so I'm almost afraid to make this post), and maybe I still will, who knows.
    Another good thing to check is the Field Test, it can show you if you have LTE signal around, and just aren't using it for some reason (it has various LTE capabilities/status bits too, to show you what's available/on).
