When the HTC One was launched, Verizon did not offer the phone at first since it already had what it considered to be a high-end HTC phone with the HTC DROID DNA. Eventually, Verizon did start selling the HTC One.
We should point out that AT&T users are not shut out since they do have the option to purchase the device unlocked from HTC. The manufacturer is offering a 12-month installment plan through PayPal Credit with 0% interest. Well qualified buyers will have the opportunity to purchase the phone without interest as long as it is paid off in 12 months or less. At $699, that works out to $58.25 a month.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect to this news is how AT&T reached this decision. Was the carrier upset with the poor showing of the HTC One M9? Outside of confirming that it won't be carrying HTC's new flagship, the nation's second largest carrier has nothing to say about its decision.

Say what?? Total nonsense but I'm going to purchase this off contract to use on AT&T as long as the reviews are good and the battery holds up

Yeah, it's better to buy an unlocked version rather that to be locked in a contract.

Knowing AT&T and their "timely" updates, people would be better off getting the unlocked version anyways.

This is how phones should be bought anyway!!!! We pay for the phone and choose which carrier we want to go to....

unfortunately you can only do that with nexus, iphone and moto x even an unlocked HTC would only work on CDMA or GSM carrier

I don't mind all OEM's going unlocked route instead of carrier and give good financing options to users.

I also just got the $100 promo code. Not sure if it's a one time use code. Have at it. "HTC1008"

I applaud HTC for heading this route. I absolutely hate bloatwares from any of these carriers. For that alone, I'm probably going with this instead of S7 Edge that I've been waiting to come into inventory.

Will the unlocked version work with VoLTE or WiFi calling? How about band support? If any of these fall short, then its not "fully compatible with AT&T" like they say it is. I realize that none of that is absolutely necessary to average users, but to the informed buyer who does care it can give pause for concern. Me, I'm a Verizon user so the point is moot for me. But since I've come to rely on and utilize the benefits of VoLTE and WiFi calling, those two things have become requirements for when I buy a new phone. If neither of those are offered, I don't consider buying it.

Agreed. ATT or any carrier have never supported wifi calling on any unlocked phone not bought from them and unlikely to do so. Except ZTE Axon pro which supports VOLTE and Wifi calling I guess on T-Mo.I could not see the Bands supported as well in the spec.Does anybody have the band support details?

Because they didn't sell and I don't blame ATT for to wanting to buy a phone, that is goign to get stuck on their shelves. HTC phones don't sell with any carrier anymore. Even T-Mobile with the original One series, had trouble selling them and got stuck with a lot of them.

If you're on att just don't buy unlocked phones. The nexus 6p or iPhone are exempt but all others are treated like 2nd class citizens. I wanted the titanium note 5 so I got it unlocked and network speed was half of what an official att note 5 can do.
