I'm no expert, but I think the 988 doesn't use the same LTE bands that ATT uses. Unlocking the device will not fix that. The reason you can get EDGE is because they share the same bands for that network. Check GSMArena and it will break down the diffs between the variants.

e988 does not have LTE...it was released as an Asia specific model and has no LTE band
