    What metro area? I had Z30 that would get LTE on AT&T in other parts of country, but never in Tampa Metro.

    You're probably going to encounter areas where you won't have LTE where you should, at some point.

    Why do you say I would have issues in other LTE area's?

    Different areas use different LTE bands. Sometimes phones sold overseas will work fine in some LTE areas, but most of the time they are missing bands specific to certain areas.

    US Wireless Carrier Bands: Cheat Sheet

    Check to see if the phone you purchased can utilize LTE Bands 2, 4, 12, 17 and LTE Frequencies 1900, 1700 abcde, 700 bc. If you do, you will be fine.

    You will be totally fine. Any LTE band not the same (UK vs NA) is for future spectrum to penetrate buildings but that is at least 18 months out. It will still work the same. Now and after. Saying that, in certain rural areas you may only get 3G but who cares as you can still use phone! Online gaming and sending big files would just be slower in 3G.

    Network bands

    North America and Latin America

    FD-LTE 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12, 17, 19, 20, 28, 29, 30

    TDD LTE – 38, 39, 40, 41

    (2100/1900/1800/1700/850/2600/700/700/800/700/2300 MHz)

    HSPA+ 1, 2, 4, 5, 8 (2100/1900/1700/850/900 MHz) Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)

    Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific

    FD-LTE 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17 20, 28A

    (2100/1900/1800/2600/900/800/700 MHz)

    TD-LTE 38, 40, B28 (2600/2300/2500 MHz)

    HSPA+ 1, 2, 5/6, 8 (2100/1900/850/900 MHz)

    Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)

    Band 30 is one used by AT&T that the European version doesn't have. So if he goes into an area that uses that band, he'll lose LTE while someone else with the NA version would have LTE. I personally would just wait. He's good since in his area it seems he doesn't have that problem. So for him, he should just keep that phone.

    I used to have a verizon Q10 that I used on AT&T and I would get LTE at home but not at work because it was missing some bands, not a big deal though as I had wifi at work. Just check if you get LTE in all the places you go frequently and you should be fine, worst case is it drops to 3G.

    I thought about doing this but was worried about missing bands as I travel to rural areas for work. Glad it seems to be working fine for you.

    My hats off to OP. A true BlackBerry fan. I have moved on from PKB to another device but I do hope for all the fans and shareholders like myself hat this phone succeeds despite the major blunders so far on the release.

    AT&T users may be so lucky but T-Mobile is actively using Band 12 in many areas and the UK variant lacks this band. My Classic suffers for lack of Band 12.

    Did you have any issue using a UK-US charging adapter? My passport didn't charge after a while.

    Correct, AT&T did not get the phone specs, so they could not approve there specific bands. In major US cities the phone will be fine and hand off with no issues. But when you travel to the country side the phone could be in trouble. Many areas are single service with system sharing. Hence complete coverage.

    Yes for this reason I will wait. Unfortunately . KEYone is for wife so I don't think she would be too happy if I got her one that didn't work in the mountains skiing just to have it 2-3 weeks early.
