Is the Factory Unlocked Priv a STV100-3?

Views: 665 Replies: 6
I am trying to decide to buy a factory unlocked PRIV or AT&T carrier unlocked one. I see that the STV100-3 supports the same frequencies as my Passport. But the AT&T is much more limited - only good on AT&T in the States I presume - not overseas?

No one can tell you that simply based on the STV version, the unlocked versions carry the same version as locked ones in some cases. This thread may help you though - How to identify a factory unlocked US Priv and avoid AT&T unlocked units

This thread may help you though - How to identify a factory unlocked US Priv and avoid AT&T unlocked unitsWell my thread was really only for the -1 variants. But based on the autoloaders, it seems like the issue only matters for US variants, all others including factory unlocked -1, -3 and -4 all use the same software, even the Canadian carrier -3s. And as far as I know, Hong Kong carriers don't really do any customization so it would be same as a retail -3. Not sure about other APAC countries though.

Which carrier are you planning to use it on?I am on AT&T but I may need it to also work in Singapore which I think is on the -3 & -4 versions. So a -3 should work everywhere.

Posted via CB10Either version works fine.

M1, Singtel, StarHub all use bands 3 and 7, which is supported by the -1 model. Only one missing is Band 8 but that is only for 60MHz Carrier Aggregation.

None of the networks use TD-LTE, so you're sacrificing wireless charging for nothing if you're getting -3 or -4.
