    It's someone locally selling a 2nd Gen Moto X for $285...that I'm interested in buying. The imei checks out and the phone has not been reported lost or stolen or blacklisted.

    However I dont have Verizon. I have Straight Talk / ATT that I want to use instead.

    Do anyone know if this will be a issue at all? I know I won't get LTE...and that's not a issue with me at all. Just wondering if calls, text and data (hspa) will work?

    No LTE. We moved from Verizon to att, MMS seems to not work either but that could be my screw up on the APN.

    I was able to get ATT LTE on a Verizon 2014 X when I had it. The only band missing is 17 but I think you'll be fine in most places.

    A lot of it is going to depend on what AT&T/ST uses in your area. The Verizon Moto X has all the GSM/HSPA bands but 1700, but AT&T may use 1700 in some areas for 3G.

    That's the problem - people report things work because they work for them, and this is understandable - but cell companies own different sets of frequencies and if your phone does not support all of them, it will work only in the places where your carrier provides the frequencies your phone supports.

    AT&T does not run a 3G network on AWS (1700MHz).

    AT&T Mobility - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Verizon (XT1096):

    GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
    UMTS/HSPA+ (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz)
    CDMA (850, 1900 MHz)
    4G LTE (2, 3, 4, 7, 13)
    The Verizon model fully supports AT&T's GSM and UMTS network. The main issue is going to be the lack of Band 17, which is AT&T's primary LTE band. It's both their main coverage band as well as their only low-frequency LTE band, so it handles most of the building penetration and rural coverage.
