I'd rather have a world 3G pentaband phone than a specific carrier locked LTE phone.
Seriously don't know why people bitching about LTE. Guess those are the rednecks never travel.
To be fair, you can get a carrier locked LTE phone that supports 3G worldwide on Verizon or AT&T.... just be prepared to pay an arm and a leg for international coverage plans (like my boss does).
Personally, I would rather have the unlocked phone and then have a SIM for the region I'm visiting because the price of the international coverage plans from Verizon and AT&T should just be criminal.
Steep price to carry your local phone number wherever you go. I mostly just want data coverage wherever I go..could careless about my carrier phone number tbh.
