LTE Bands and carrier choices on the 7+?
I'm considering my pre-order, but I'm not sure which way to go. I currently have a 6S+ on T-Mobile, model A1687. According to this page at Apple (iPhone - View countries with supported LTE networks - Apple) it appears that the CDMA & GSM carriers shared this one model - since Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon were all listed as US Carriers. However, on the 7+ it looks like they are split again with Sprint & Verizon offering the A1661, and AT&T and T-Mobile offering the A1784. In comparing the lists of LTE bands on these 2 models - unless I'm missing something - the lists look identical... So ??? Are they really different models?
Although I'm currently with T-Mobile, since I frequently travel to rural Tennessee, I am considering switching to Verizon. I usually buy my devices outright, so I'd like to ensure that whatever I buy will be able to be used on either network with no degradation in service.
Are there any wireless experts out there that can help me sort this out??
