Default [Q] Z1 Compact on ATT 4G LTE Network

Has anyone been able to use Z1C on ATT 4G LTE network in USA ?
If so , can you post the APN settings.

It doesn't have the 700mhz band for LTE. Most areas use that for LTE so most likely you are out of luck

This is what I've been able to achieve on H+ in downtown Las Vegas:

I do some light surfing and a lot of Reddit and Facebook throughout the day. I don't know if LTE coverage is bad here, but I haven't noticed any network speed difference between my Z1C and my S4.

Here's LTE on att. Got lucky certain parts of the metroplex use bands that work on the z1c

That is good news, but can you guys post here the APN settings from your phone in Settings - More - Mobile networks - Access Point Names
because I am only getting 3.5 Mb download speed, I am in Missouri.

Again depends on the area and make sure att has you on the lte data and not just the Hspa+ stuff that sometimes happens when you give them the IMEI of a non att smartphone

Thanks for the info. I had ATT Galaxy S4 Active with LTE, I use same SIM card with Xperia Z1C.
My APN settings are same as the one here, but in my area I only get HSPA+, which is still good enough for me.

Agreed. HSPA+ is enough and seeing LTE was just the cherry on top

How does AT&T identify your xperia z1 compact on their network? Their customer support is telling me it is an unknown device and won't work with mobile data. I can text and make phone calls, but mobile data doesn't work.

I just need to know what to tell them so mobile data will work, because switching to T-Mobile would mean no service in my area.

When you put your sim in did you download the settings? I did that and got my data to work.

On att end I always give them an IMEI off an att lte device so that I get the right data plan but switching to mobile share I don't worry about it anymore
