First, AT&T says LA has lte, but not if you live in the heavily populated area of the San Fernando Valley. No LTE. It's where I spend the majority of my time. Then when I did happen to be in an lte area, it was worse than 4G! I paid full retail since I wasn't eligible for an upgrade and was not happy with what I was getting. Plus, dropped calls or suddenly voicemail would light up and phone never rang. That was it. Got a Verizon iPhone 5 today and basking in Lte coverage. The etf plus new line was still $300 less than what I paid for so I'm saving money. And selling the AT&T iPhone for a profit. Verizon speed test attached.
