Default [Q] Will the Verizon HTC ONE M8 works on AT&T?

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
Current Devices:

HTC One (M8) on Verizon **S-Off**
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on Verizon **rooted w/ safestrap**
OnePlus One on prepaid **rooted & unlocked** (YES, it has a yellow piss screen and it has a few defects so waiting for a replacement!)

Incoming: Verizon LG G3

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!

Default 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!
