    Is it true that a factory unlocked Note 4 does not have 4g LTE capability?

    It depends on the version. For example, the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is factory sim unlocked and has 4GLTE capabilities.

    There are multiple factory unlocked models. Some have 4G LTE and it of course depends on your carrier and where you live whether a particular phone will give you LTE service.

    So as long as my carrier (which is at&t) supports lte in my area it should work? How do I figure out which model I have?

    No, that's not exactly how it works. You have to see if the bands that the phone has supports the LTE bands that ATT uses where you live. So find out what bands ATT uses in your area and see if the phone you have supports them. You can see your phone model under Device in Settings. Then look up your model and see what bands it has.

    If let's say you bought an international unlocked note 4 and tried to use it on ATT you'd be locked to 4G at best. No LTE because international phones don't use same LTE bands as ATT. I'd know because I did that for the note 2. Great when traveling, but otherwise you're stuck with slower speeds.

    This is not accurate for the Note 4. There are international models that will work on ATT LTE. He needs to do what I said to find out if his model will work on his ATT LTE bands.

    Oh really? Darn, I would've preferred the exynos version as the snapdragon 805 doesn't feel much faster than the 800 on the note 3.

    Off the top of my head, I think the 910C model may fit that. The 910F model I believe is snapdragon.

    That's not something to fix. What is it you're trying to accomplish?

    Two things.

    Make sure you have the proper APN settings for ATT.

    You may need to use an IMEI for an ATT phone for ATT to see it properly. This is true for US phones from other carriers too.

    Ok. How do I go about that?
    11-20-2014 03:50 PM

    You can look up the APN settings online and either edit your current APN if it doesn't match or add a new APN (Access Point Name) under your network settings.

    For the second, there are a few things people have done.
    If you have old ATT LTE phone, you can use that IMEI and register it with ATT.
    If it is a new SIM, simply putting it in an ATT LTE phone and letting it register on the network may do the trick.
    Call or visit ATT and get them to make changes in your account so that the phone shows as an LTE device.

    Is there a particular site you can direct me to where I can find the APN settings?
