Default Would unlocked Z2 work in US? (AT&T)

Hello guys, as title says, if I were to obtained a unlocked Z2, would it have full functionality in USA such as 4G/LTE? I looked a the radio bands listed in their specs and compared it to what AT&T uses, I noticed there were some but not all bands that matched. I would appreciate any help, thank you!

Thank you so much for that information, I've been talking to AT&T rep trying to figure this out, but seems like all the bands AT&T uses for 3G/4G/LTE is listed in D6503 specs.

Do you have any issues using it in the States, or does it everything function as it should? I would truly appreciate your help, thank you.

Only place I know for a fact you can order it and get it to US soon is using Ebay and buying it off Taiwanese seller. Looks like it's selling for about $900 right now...

Default reception?

I have been trying to find info on how good the reception on the phone is.. My s4 has **** reception. the htc one I have has much better reception when im at work. I am hovering over a "Buy it Now" button on ebay and want to find out if it has good reception. Also, how is the stock messaging app? I hate using third party ones, they usually have quirks, but again, cant find any info on what the email or messaging apps look like at all.

You should try Textra. It is the best sms app I have used on Android.
