When most people say "unlocked" concerning phones, they mean carrier unlocked, not that the phone has an unlocked bootloader. You are correct in that there is currently no bootloader unlock the Verizon G3, but all Verizon LTE phones are carrier unlocked as per their deal with the FCC.

All the GSM bands on AT&T are supported, but not all LTE bands. LTE band 4 is supported, because that's same band as the 700mhz AWS spectrum Verizon bought (and is now advertising as "XLTE"). I wouldn't know how to tell or if you even can tell what band(s) of LTE that AT&T is using in your areas.
