Default Will Droid Mini work on AT&T?

Hey folks. I like the Droid Mini. It appears to be GSM-capable. If I get one, will it work with AT&T?

Thanks!

It will do voice and text. It should do 3G. It probably won't do 4G LTE (wrong bands).

i'm new to this but i think you need bands that the phone doesn't have. i don't think there's any way to use 4g LTE with AT&T maybe you understood that already idk.

Actually trying to disable 4g and switch to h+ with this tool because MMS and calls aren't working. Its not working but here's some info.

Its really weird it seems to cycle through different networks when I screw with it but always ends up on 4g.and data definitely works. When it's cycling through and hasn't gotten stuck on 4g yet MMS DOES work. Any help? It seems like there should be an easy fix

WOAH sweet i figured it out! i'm NOT sure if the dialer code *#*#4636#*#* or ##PROGRAM helped me, but i did NOT see the option to "select network" before!!

so, set "preferred network type" to "LTE / GSM / UMTS" then "select network" and do "UMTS only"

i'm fine with h+ for data and i can always switch to LTE again if i want to watch a movie or something.

this is for t mobile. not sure if at&t is different

funny thing is, when its connected to WIFI it automatically switches back to 3g, if i turn of WIFI it turns on h+. frankly this is...... ideal. well almost. i'm fine with it tho.
