    I received my OPO today. I removed the SIM card from my Samsung S5 and placed it in my OPO. It shows 4G connectivity. I have an LTE package and from some of the posts here many have said 4G is LTE for AT&T.....not true. I have ran several speed tests because my OPO seemed to be running much slower than both my S5 and my Nexus 5 that utilized the same SIM. I called AT&T and spoke with a very helpful tech. We made sure all of my APN settings were correct.....they were. I asked him if they needed to change my IMEI number and he advised me that if they did that it could take the phone down to basic speeds much slower than my present speed. Regardless if the phone supports AT&T bands for LTE it is still likely you will not attain LTE speeds. I am located in Houston so hitting LTE should not be an issue but AT&T advised me because it is not a recognized phone with a recognizable AT&T IMEI LTE will be unattainable.

    Has anyone else run into this issue? If so, any remedy?

    If speed does not magically get better over the next few days this phone will be on its way to EBay.....ugh...after all the hype and excitement this sucks!

    If this is not resolved. Will you try to profit or just get your investment back?. I am happy to buy it.

    Let's confirm one thing first? This is the international unit and not the Chinese model?

    Any way you can contact OPO and see if they have a solution to this? They advertise that AT&T and T mobile fully works right on their website.

    Seriously, you need that your carrier recognizes your phone to work as it should? here it doesn't matter as long as the phone can use the bands and you have a contract. It's like traffic priorization, isn't that illegal?.

    Does anyone have info on what bands are used in what areas? This could be a deal breaker for a lot of people.

    Wouldn't surprise me in the least. AT&T is a very controlling organization...
