Hi there,

I just got my verizon htc one m8 but I was wondering will this phone works with at&t sim card? Can I receive AT&T 4G LTE signals?

Any helps are welcomed.

Thanks in advance.

Wrong... It does have GSM to fallback on but you will only get HSPA+ at best. No LTE

As far as I'm aware, HSPA+ is just a slightly faster 3G.

HSPA+ is about 4-10mbps download in my area versus about 1mbps down with 3g.

Wow really? I used to get anywhere from 1-3 mbps with 3G on Verizon, versus 4-6 with HSPA+ on AT&T.

I'm thinking about using an upgrade on a flip phone I have on Verizon to get this phone.
How hard would it be to get it to work on Straight Talk and since they use AT&T's network, would I be able to get HSPA+ too?


Thanks in advance!

hspa and hspa+
hspa is 3g 850mhz 1.5mbps tops and hspa+ is "4g" 1900mhz 5-20mpbs tops which is really like a 3.9g theres a story behind this but im only answering the question which is which so pretty much this device is ready for either bands just check who's got those bands and you are ready to go ohh by the way no LTE if it isnt with verizon peace im out im batmaaaaaaaaaaaaan!

Because Verizonís 4G LTE devices use SIM cards, that means many of them (the global-ready ones, anyway) are compatible with the regular 3G/2G GSM bands used everywhere else in the world (no LTE, however). When traveling, simply pop in a prepaid SIM card, configure the APN settings with the network youíll be using the phone on, and boom. Youíre up and running on 3G. Same goes for AT&T in the US (again, no LTE because of incompatible bands).
