    So I thought my iPad mini would be compatible internationally when it comes to LTE. I have relatives in a foreign country and I plan on visiting them regularly. At the Apple Store they were out of the AT&T iPad minis so I settled with a Verizon iPad... little did I know that there are two flavors of iPad minis. It seems the Verizon/Sprint versions have more international compatibility with LTE?

    Why? This just seems silly- is AT&T stomping it's feet on network exclusivity or something? At least in my area AT&T has a license for 700MHz block C so I could always go to them but still. Us consumers should be able to make a choice on which carrier we want to use. Why is this still a problem when we're shelling out money for an unsubsidized device?

    You had a choice and you picked wrong. Deal with it. Does anyone these days accept any responsibility?
