I can confirm Travis' comments. Until a month ago, I lived in an area of
Los Angeles that dropped my current AT&T phone down to 850MHz, and the
Neo would not connect to the AT&T network when this happened. Once I was
out in the open, the GTA01v4 connected to AT&T just fine.
It'd be handy to modify the firmware to indicate on the GUI which band
the Neo/Freeruner is using, if that's possible. Not sure if that's been
discussed before or not.
