While digging thru KG1 I found some cool images...

Seems to me like AT&T is holding onto the SGS2 for their 4G LTE launch!

stat_sys_data_lte_att_1.png
stat_sys_data_lte_att_2.png
stat_sys_data_lte_att_3.png



There is also a set without "LTE" on them for their current 4G.

xml that controls those:
stat_sys_data_lte_att.xml
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<animation-list android:oneshot="false"
  xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <item android:duration="1000" android:drawable="@drawable/stat_sys_data_lte_att_0" />
    <item android:duration="1000" android:drawable="@drawable/stat_sys_data_lte_att_1" />
    <item android:duration="1000" android:drawable="@drawable/stat_sys_data_lte_att_2" />
    <item android:duration="1000" android:drawable="@drawable/stat_sys_data_lte_att_3" />
</animation-list>
Here are the new APN's:

Code:
  <apn carrier="Cingular 380 ATT"
      mcc="310"
      mnc="380"
      apn="proxy"
      mmsc="http://mmsc.cingular.com/"
      mmsproxy="wireless.cingular.com"
      type="default,supl,mms"
  />

  <apn carrier="ATT PHONE"
      mcc="310"
      mnc="410"
      apn="phone"
      type="default"
  />
  
  <apn carrier="ATT WAP"
      mcc="310"
      mnc="410"
      apn="wap.cingular"
      mmsc="http://mmsc.cingular.com/"
      mmsproxy="wireless.cingular.com"
      mmsport="80"
      type="supl,mms"
  />

  <apn carrier="BROADBAND"
      mcc="310"
      mnc="150"
      apn="broadband"
      type="dun"
  />

  <apn carrier="BROADBAND"
      mcc="310"
      mnc="170"
      apn="broadband"
      type="dun"
  />

  <apn carrier="BROADBAND"
      mcc="310"
      mnc="410"
      apn="broadband"
      type="dun"
  />

  <apn carrier="BROADBAND"
      mcc="310"
      mnc="980"
      apn="broadband"
      type="dun"
  />

  <apn carrier="BROADBAND"
      mcc="311"
      mnc="180"
      apn="broadband"
      type="dun"
  />

That would make so much sense. Their LTE network is supposed to launch this Summer in Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Atlanta and Chicago, and they have no phone for it. Adding a device like the SGS2 as another fake-4G phone doesn't make sense. People will be falling all over themselves to get a LTE SGS2. They're only going to add 10 more cities this year so by the time their coverage gets meaningful I hope the SGS3 will be out and have native LTE support.

Ours, no. AT&T's, yes.

I'm on AT&T so will they launch an LTE Galaxy S 2 or an old fashioned GSM 3G version?

I know there hasn't been an announcement so what is the most likely one.

Based on the fact that the latest firmware has PNG images of AT&T's 4G logo, I'd say them getting an LTE SGS2 is almost 100% certain. I wouldn't feel bad though. It's going to take them a year to get any meaningful coverage. By then there will be new toys for all of us to play with.

I'm kind of confused about how LTE works from carrier to carrier. For example, is VZW's LTE the same as AT&T's? Do they all use the same hardware radios? Can you roam across LTE networks? I thinks it's still too new to understand all the details.

Well I live in Chicago so I hope their LTE coverage would be better than their 3G coverage.

I do not want to shell out $200 for a freaking AT&T microcell.

There's a huge downside to LTE. It destroys battery life based on what's posted by people using VZW. On a phone that's already battery-challenged that can't be a good thing.
