    Hey guys, I'm Viante

    I currently have a ATRIX 4g, and it is awful. I'm thinking of purchasing a unlocked Galaxy Nexus. Do any of guys have a unlocked Galaxy Nexus on AT&T? Share your experiences, is it worth the $650?

    Thanks
    God bless

    I've seen some people purchase unlocked Galaxy Nexus's and put in on At&t. I just want to know if it was worth it.

    I've had this phone unlocKed and using it on AT&T for over a month. No problems and well worth it. I would do it again.

    probably only 4G is compatible since both r on 700mhz frequency.
    other than that its not compatible..
    for 3G, verizon use cdma while att use hspa...
    so if u lose 4g connection, no data at all.


    ... oo its kinda weird.. on webpages they're saying LTE isnt compatible..

    What are you talking about? The GSM phone is HSDPA+ not LTE and works perfectly on the AT&T network as it does on T-Mobile. Don't want an LTE phone as 7mpbs is just fine and the battery lasts 18 hours.

    I've been running the GSM version on AT&T for over a month and love it. I get hspa+ speeds everywhere I go. I have has no regrets and would do it again in a heartbeat. Btw, battery life is as good as my iPhone 4 was, well over 24 hours on a single charge with moderate usage.

    I have been using mine on AT&T for over a month as well, no problems with it at all. Great phone, HSPA+ speeds consistently, phone is phenomenal. I don't regret it at all.

    Same as everyone else, unlocked GSM GN works great on the network... You might have to manually add the APN that's right for your plan (regular 3G, HSPA+, and LTE all have different APN's on AT&T) as I think it just does the regular 3G (wap.cingular) APN by default, but there are ample posts about this around the internet and it is really no problem whatsoever. I know I most definitely do not regret this purchase, this is an awesome device.
