Compatibility

Shame such a decently priced phone for its type would be sold with such incomplete LTE and NR frequecies.
There are other midranger type phones out there that are highly compatible but don't expect an 800 series processor.

I agree its a shame, but especially for Motorola, who usually pushes good band support for their other models in the US... seriously, what were they thinking?

I've had a couple of Motorola Moto E handsets from Cricket (AT&T) in the past five years or so, and they have never had such poor support for AT&T's current LTE bands as this device in question - basically this gets just 2, 4, 5, 12, and 66.

Maybe its a good thing my latest device is a Samsung Galaxy A device...

I think this situation is similar to the One series phones (One Hyper, One Action, One Zoom) that Motorola "brought" to the US a couple of years ago. They weren't designed for the US, but Motorola explained that their "fans" asked them to bring these kinds of phones to the US, so they simply obliged and sold them in the US as-is. I imagine the same thinking went into this one.

Of course, when their fans ask them to bring phones like this to the US, they'd probably prefer that it be a US version with US network support. I'm not sure I agree with Motorola's strategy here.

I hear you, but then why are Motorola "fans" asking for more devices that, while they are pretty neat and have cool features, lack US band support? I mean, the Moto G100 doesn't even get support for AT&T 5G NR... only T-Mobile's 5G NR is in any way supported, and even that not completely. Why are Motorola "fans" asking for 'cool phones' that have little US band support? It just kills me... and if Motorola persists in trafficking in these minimally US band-supported handsets, to the exclusion of handsets that are more 'normal', but have fuller US band support that, admittedly, most of their "fans" aren't asking for, they will literally be ruining what is left of the Motorola brand in North America. The "fans" asked - Motorola delivered - ...

2,4,5,12, and 66 will get you basically 4G LTE without the "icing on the cake" bands such as 14,29,30 (AT&T). Those bands are not used that much anyway except band 14 for the FirstNet first responder network.
Band 71 is T-Mobile's 600mhz long distance band similar to band 12 (700mhz) on both TMobile and AT&T. It all depends on where you use your phone.

To be fair, the Motorola Moto G100 gets the same exact AT&T LTE band support (and no 5G NR support) as the Nokia G20 and Nokia G10, which cost less than half of what the Moto G100 costs. The Nokia XR20 gets better AT&T network LTE band support, and 5G NR, than the Moto G100, and costs about the same. Granted, the Moto G100 is, hands down, the superior phone in most other respects, but Motorola really handicapped the G100 when it comes to band and network support for AT&T.
