    Do you need LTE specifically ?
    And, if so, why ? :)

    Here, where I'm at, LTE usually yields right at 20mps or a little more. HSPA+ is giving me 13mps +- (on AT&T)

    Anyone found good prices on the RM-983 or RM-985 for AT&T? Ideally would like to get the silver band version for less than the $450 that AT&T is asking for the dark band version.

    Expansys seems to only have the RM-984, though for good prices ($379). B&H has the RM-985 but it is $450.

    Yeah, I want LTE. I tether my laptop to my phone pretty frequently and really notice a difference between LTE and HSPA+.

    Just noticed tonight a seller on eBay that has AT&T RM-983 for $360. Listing currently shows he has more than 10 available.

    Thanks for the tip! I picked one up. Price was good enough to give up on the silver version ;)

    I had checked eBay earlier in the day and they weren't posted. Considering sales tax savings this is $142 less for me than directly from AT&T (minus the Fitbit of course which would recoup some of that). But nice not having to resell it. Or put another way, equivalent of $330+tax which seems about right for the 830.

    Here is a link in case anyone else is interested:
