The N7105 does have LTE, but it doesnt support AT&T bands. The N7100 does not have LTE. Both versions are international.

So you were correct in thinking - don't feel stupid

There are 4 versions of Note:

1. International (+LTE): SGH-7100 / SGH -7105
2. SGH-i317 : ATT+(Rogers+Bell + Telus): HSPA 850/900/1900/2100, LTE: 700/850/1700/1900
3. SCH-i605 : CDMA + LTE 700
4. SGH-T889 : T-Mobile+Mobilicity+Wind : HSPA: 850/900/1700/1900/2100, LTE: 700, 1700


These are from FCC filings

EDIT: I posted about it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1956264

T-Mobile's variant seems to be the better choice even if you are on AT&T based on the FCC filings anyway

Hopefully AT&T didn't hardware disable the FM radio or something...
Anyone know where the FM radio is usually integrated on phones now a days? didn't it used to be part of the Bluetooth chip on smartphones?

Some info in this thread is just plain contradiction. For example, the above two quoted posts contradict to each other. Is AT&T tri-band or quad-band UMTS after all?

It comes down to what to believe, because FCC filings contradicts to what people say and what cellphone website says. For example, phonearena lists the band specs of i-317 as this:

GSM 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz / UMTS 850, 1900, 2100 MHz / LTE 700 MHz Class 17, 1700/2100 MHz

Here, i-317 is quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G (not what FCC filing says).

Also, the website lists T889 as this:
GSM 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz / UMTS 850, 1700/2100, 2100 MHz / NO LTE

Here, T889 has 3G 850, AWS, 2100, which also is not what FCC filing says, besides there is no LTE support.

Some information here has got to be misinformation, but which one is it?

I agree on the contradiction for sure, what FCC tested vs what is being listed are different. The OP I had had the links to the FCC filings as well but I guess they we against the rules because mods removed the links.

Ye I wasn't giving doubt on the credibility of your source. It's just that i'm kind of confused by all kinds of information. Both phonearena and pdadb (checked just now) shows that T889 has no LTE support and even more interesting, pdadb lists i317 as quad-band UMTS, which phonearena lists as tri-band... I know it sounds like a nerd but it's driving me crazy as I'm doing research and decide on which version to get LOL

For now, I guess I'll only need to know if it's ever possible to flash N7100 rom onto i317 or T889, if not, i'm giving up LTE and stay with faster/earlier European OTA updates, like *DBT*
