Does the status bar say "4G" or "LTE" when you are on LTE (AT&T)?

    When you're on LTE, it'll display LTE.

    When it displays 4G you're on AT&T's older HSDPA+ network.

    In ATTese "4G" is HSPDA+ and "LTE" is actual "LTE," or "4G LTE."

    What did you do to get it to connect to LTE?

    Mine also shows 4G and according to AT&Ts LTE coverage map, I should be on LTE.

    Same here. Per their coverage map, I am firmly in LTE territory but only getting 4G.
