First, keep in mind that nowadays Verizon devices are sold Unlocked
So according to the specs on Verizon's website, the Verizon One M8 for Windows is/should be compatible with T-Mobile and AT&T LTE frequencies (bands 13+4; 700c+1700MHz).
T-Mobile uses almost exclusively band 4, while it's AT&T's second largest.

Also, band 13 has a tiny bit of overlap with band 17 for downlink (AT&T's main frequency), so it /may/ pick up on that a bit.
Here's the frequency list on their site:


Knowing this, is anyone more likely to pick one of these up? I know I'm quite tempted.

May be if it didn't have that ugly Verizon logo.

Haha this is true, that definitely is off putting. I may just have to get one of those limited edition Xbox Dot View cases to go with it though XD

At least carrier bloat is kept to a minimum on Windows Phone and can actually be uninstalled without hackery, not just disabled.

Exactly. One thing I really like about my G3 Cat.6 is that 99% of the carrier bloat was uninstallable without modification.
Closer to iPhone where carriers can't add any junk whatsoever.
