    So AT&T is selling the A1633/34 model with the extra LTE band, is this important or no?

    If you use AT&T, as I do, then that's probably the one that you want to buy.

    I think it will have a big impact. If you use AT&T definitely get that version.

    If you are currently using AT&T as your carrier, I highly strongly recommend that you get the AT&T model. I placed a reservation for the t-mobile but I'm on AT&T Network, and have decided to just place an order on apple.com and wait 3-4 weeks for it to ship to me. I'll pass on the T-mobile and someone who is waiting in line that day will probably be happy because they got one.

    Not sure Band 30 will hit in anything other than major markets before the next version of the phone is released, so it might not matter much for this iteration. AT&T hasn't even released a list of which cities will get it first yet, but since the whole purpose of Band 30 is to reduce the congestion in certain areas, I think it will hit big cities first. Not sure it's a deal breaker just yet, but it will probably be a game changer in the future. Just my own personal thoughts.

    From what I read, it depends on your situation. If it is to relieve data congestion in urban areas, I'm rarely in those areas, so it's a non-issue for me.
