Did you even read what I said?  It will be a fIne 3g only phone.  Att has no 2g network.   If it's the model posted in the first post.  Att uses bands 2,4,5,12,18,29,30,66.   These can be any one band in any area.  I see band 5,12,30 on my way to work in 35 miles.

the OP posted the international version, which is not At&t or even US compatible.   The version sold for the US and Canada is the second version listed.  You can purchase at Best Buy or through amazon.  If it doesn’t say US warranty, it’s not the US version.  
    It’s non carrier and will not get WiFi calling on At&t.

Who sent you?  The US model works out of the box.   I suggest you check the IMEI which will tell you more

its not a U instead of the V is it?  Take the V and change it to a U and its the US unlocked variant.

Then the specs are wrong or the phone is defective.
