    Is anyone using this device on the At&t network? What are the drawbacks / advantages(if any)?

    Assuming its any bit like how other VZW Windows Phones' behaved, it will work, but MMS may not work/may need some tweaking, data probably will work, maybe APN needs to be tweaked too. I doubt you'd get LTE. I could be wrong.

    The bands included don't line up. LTE won't work.

    LTE Works on t-mobile.

    AT&T uses 700 and 1700 Channel 4 so I believe it would work, however I haven't tried it.

    I'm using it on AT&T.
    In my area LTE does not work, though that's not important to me at all.
    Incoming MMS does not work, but you can send MMS.
    Also Internet tethering does not work.
    Everything else is fine. You have to manually set the MMS to get the outgoing MMS to work, however incoming will not work.
    I have since learned that Verizon locks down, via firmware, the MMS and Internet sharing on their LTE phones.
    The GSM is unlocked.

    I'm going to put my ATIV SE up for sale as I'm moving (retiring) overseas.
    Can't post in the Classifieds yet :)

    Hey Fred,
    Thanks for your information, that helps. Which WP OS are you using that's giving you the MMS and Internet Sharing problems, is it WP8 or WP8.1 Developer Preview? I would totally love to use this phone on At&t's network too, but if there's isn't a fix for MMS then I might reconsider. I can careless with Internet Sharing since I don't use that. Thanks!

    Just the WP8 that came with it.
    XDA devs, after digging around there, it appears that while Verizon does have the GSM unlocked (required by the FCC), they do lock down the MMS and internet sharing.

    Thanks for the response Fred. Do you know if XDA Dev have a code to unlock it by any chance? Also, do you know if installing WP8.1 Developer Preview will make MMS work for the ATIV SE?
