Yes, you can use OTHER variants with the att network that have unlockable bootloaders. But the motox we get from att can not be unlocked. Same thing with the Verizon. Right?

Not to rub it in, but Verizon at least has Developer Edition

Doesn't matter if unlocked version doesn't support LTE band 5. AT&T is not going to suddenly shut off the other bands and leave a few hundred millions of their users lack of LTE access because they don't have a phone that support it.

AT&T's LTE Advanced allow speed faster than 100mbps use the combination of band 4 and 17, the unlocked version supoprt both bands. I'm not sure if a specific modem or hardware is required for this "carrier aggregation" to work on AT&T though. Base on the specs, the Moto X have dual antenna (MIMO for LTE), so it probably should work with LTE Advanced, I'm not 100%. If it is missing, then as long as you don't need 100mbps+ LTE download speed, it's not too bad. But overall, it's a non-issue with lacking of LTE band 5.

Man, read the thread I linked. You're looking fairly silly right about now.

YES.....there is a way to unlock the at&t bootloader....permanently. tho, it may not go on for long. The guy doing it could disappear.

Read the thread and stop arguing. Lol

I am one of the lucky ones who unlocked my XT1058 (AT&T MOTO X) the guy in China must have access to some internal Moto tool because it looks like an official way to unlock a locked bootloader. once unlocked, TWRP, slide to root.
