Sign [Q] Which Flavor M8 to buy

I am on net10 using AT&T's network. I picked up the at&t m8 full price retail but I am thinking about returning it for the unlocked version or verizon version on HTCs website. I hate all this AT&T bloatware and plan to use it on other carriers or resell it when the next wave of flagships come along. But I have some questions about the capabilities of the different versions I was hoping you gurus could help me with.

1) Factory Unlocked M8 : I am unsure of the Root status and which carrier tree this would fall under and also AT&T LTE Support.

2) Verizon M8: I read that phone doesn't support AT&T LTE and only HSPA+? I also read that this phone will be entered into verizon's database so it would be more valuable resell down the road as you could use it with verizon or at&t? ( i have never been a verizon customer so don't know the benefit or process for bringing your own phone)

Thanks for your feedback!

Dev unlock and flash what ever ROM you need. I have t mobile with s-off and super Cid. I am using stock GPE ROM. No complaints
