Default [Q] Baseband / ROM / M919->I337 Combination

So to have an unlocked bootloader I got the Tmo S4, I'm going to be using it with AT&T. For best results, should I be using the Tmo baseband or an AT&T one? Even if I leave the baseband as Tmo (It is MDL), after flashing recovery and installing rom, would i install a Tmo or ATT rom?
Dont care about LTE.

Use the TMO base band and you can flash att TMO and others but remember to flash a TMO kernel.

What does flashing the Tmo kernel do exactly? Right now I'm using a Note 2 T889 with with the Tmo baseband on AT&T. I downloaded the cm10.1 for t0lteatt and never changed the kernel.

The modems and kernels are signed specifically for each device anyways, so i'm not sure a custom AT&T kernel would even work on your device. There's not really a difference anyways as long as you have the phone network unlocked.
Current Device: ATT Samsung Galaxy S4 (i337)

Past Devices:
Droid Bionic (GSM Hacked)
HTC Inspire 4G (Desire HD)
Nexus One
Motorola Backflip
HTC Dev Phone 1 (Dream/G1)

How strange, the first thing I did with my T889 was flash custom recovery and install cm10.1 ATT version. Never had any problems.
