    It looks like people are still having issues with LTE; however, it seems to be more of an issue with AT&T not having the IMEI numbers whitelisted. Take a look at this thread here: http://forums.androidcentral.com/one...onnection.html

    Honestly even though LTE shows that it drops out quite a bit more than any other phone I've had in my normal use and locations, I have really notice performance or connectivity issues all that much. Like when it drops to 4g, doesn't really affect the speed much. Or where it's noticeable. So actually hasn't bothered me much at all.

    How did you guys activate it on your network? I have an S7Edge now. Can I just take the sim card out and put it in the OP3? I hate going to the ATT store in general, so avoiding that would be nice

    No need to go to an AT&T Store or even call them, just take your nano sim card out of the Samsung and put it in the Oneplus 3. I thought I was going to to have to setup the AT&T APN but after I put my sim card in and turned on the phone, I went into the settings and the APN was already the correct one (nextgenphone)

    As stated above, you SHOULD be able to just swap the sim to the OP3 with no issue. However, it may not be as clear cut as that if the correct APN settings aren't automatically input for you. In which case, you may have to manually input them. Also, you may have to update your imei with att if you have connectivity issues.

    Those things might not happen, but if they do then you have a heads up.

    I just had to add the at&t apn manually, then I did a reboot and wallah... It worked. Very easy and never had any issues dropping LTE or service.

    Ok I now take back what I said, after using my oneplus 3 for a week or so, it has become totally unreliable for a phone, cell signal is always poor, averaging around -120db missed calls, dropped calls, missed text messages. I put my Sim Card back in my unlocked Nexus 6 and in the same exact locations averaging around -91db. Also ran the same Sim card in my daughter's Galaxy S7 and it also ran as well as my nexus 6. I sold my Oneplus One a month after it came out because of horrible cell signal, I was really hoping that the quality of Oneplus would have improved now that they are on their 4th model phone. Missed the return period by 1 day, so I guess this is going on ebay.

    I have had no major issues since I got the OP3 back in July, always on ATT, in the US and traveling to Iceland. My biggest complaint for signal related issues has been the bars have no real correlation to actual signal quality.

    When I had the Note 7, side by side, both on ATT, the OP3 usually had slightly better signal.

    Signal bars on phones are meaningless across manufacturers and even models, as there is no industry standard governing them. So, therefore, a Samsung Note 7 may show 4 bars on a particular signal strength whilst another phone will only show, say, 3. To see your actual signal strength, go to... Settings > About phone > Status > SIM status > Signal strength. The lower the -dBm and the higher the ASU, the better.

    Agreed and this is what I was referring to when comparing signal db that was viewed from the SIM status on both phones. It just seemed the OP3 tends to show full bars until the signal was very weak . I rarely saw 2 or 3 bars on the OP3. Either full or no signal were more common compared to other phones. Not a huge deal but weak signal had me go check the SIM status a number of times to see what was really going on.

    I'm having no problems with AT&T and LTE so far. I'm using the AT&T sim card from Tracfone.

    I'm still on AT&T with a T-Mobile sim as well. I haven't run into an issue where AT&T "lost" my service in several weeks now. I have had issues where data gets turned off occasionally - infrequently - on my AT&T or T-Mobile sim, no idea why. My phone always shows "LTE" when idle but lately always drops to "4g+" when actually using data on either sim, no idea why this started. No VoLTE with AT&T, works great with T-Mobile. I'm becoming less enthused with dual sim phones though because it seems none of the carrier apps are dual sim aware. With AT&T Visual Voicemail if I swap the sim slots temporarily I have to go back and completely setup my visual voicemail again, even if I never opened it while the AT&T sim was in the second slot. T-Mobile's account app doesn't work at all in the OP3 regardless of slot, but the built in Android visual voicemail works with T-Mobile's voicemail system - unlike AT&T which requires their own vvm app. Since I last swapped sim slots TrueCaller now doesn't have a label for my AT&T sim in slot one - it's just blank in the app.

    None of these issues make the phone or either system unusable, just minor annoyances. They do tend to add up, but really I'm still very happy with the OP3 on either AT&T's or T-Mobile's networks. The LTE/4g+ is my biggest annoyance now and even that isn't terrible. I did some speed tests and for me I'm actually getting 3-5x the transfer rate over T-Mobile's network vs AT&T, not sure if that matters for you. This was very consistent as well - ran the tests several times over several days on either network.

    I need to pick up a nano-sim for my OP3 which should arrive in a day or so. What settings do I need to plug in for AT&T?

    I also don't have any issues with LTE on AT&T. In fact the LTE speeds are AMAZING compared to my LG G3 that I switched from.

    How did you get it hooked up? Did you just pop it out of old phone and pop it in OP3?

    I was unable to obtain a nano-sim from AT&T today. Or rather, I could have, but the process of getting the nano-sim card would kill the sim card in my GS4 at the same time, and I'm not yet ready to switch over to the OP3. I thought it was a simple task to switch from one phone to another by changing the IMEI on my account. But I guess it doesn't work that way. Rats.

    That's really poor. In the UK they send you a new sim then activate it when you ask them to, leaving your current (old) sim active until then.

    It came yesterday afternoon. I haven't had a chance to go by the AT&T store and do the changeover yet. Was hoping to do that myself, on my own schedule.

    My initial impressions are very favorable with one sole exception thus far. My FPS is not very reliable. It almost seems like I have to warm it up before it begins to work normally. I left it overnight (and only lost about 1% battery... which is phenomenal in my experience), but when I picked it up this morning to check the battery, I couldn't get the FPS to work with any of the 3 fingers I had set up. So it was back to the pin code to unlock it.

    Now, only 2 out of my 3 fingers are reliable. Sigh.

    But I have a long way to go to get it setup. I hope to get by the store today and get my network going so I can begin using it for calls, etc. But I'll be days setting up all my apps and customizations... and will ponder putting Nova Prime on it too. I've been using NP for several years on the old GS4.

    I noticed there was an option (during setup) to move everything over from another Android device, but I didn't elect that option. Not exactly sure what that does. Maybe that would have been faster, but I don't plan to put all the junk on my old GS4 on the OP3. It will accumulate over time anyway.

    I need to get my nav apps functional so I can see if I'm going to have the reboot issue that's been problematic for some. But I'd sure like to figure out the FPS issue.

    I think I'll pick up a nano to micro sim adapter so I can be bi-phonal, if I can figure out how to change between phones via online.

    Thats really odd. Most reviews said its possibly the best FPS on the market. Is there a limit to how many fingers you can add? If there isnt, I would try doing each finger multiple times. For example set up 3 different fingerprint IDs but make them all your thumb. Makes it much more reliable. Hows the screen look? Is the pixelation bad?

    My FPS is amazing on the OP3. I came from the Note 7 and this one blows it away. I love the fact it's not an actually button, nothing to push, just lay your finger on the FPS and it unlocks. I've had the phone for 1 week and I think I have had a couple of miss reads but those were just because I put my finger on wrong. You can put up to 5 fingers into the FPS.
