I hope someone can clarify this because we don't want to buy these if we cannot use these properly despite that is a beautiful device.

    P/s: Pulled up the history of Nokia Global webpage, look like they cut off a lot of LTE frequencies. Don't know why they did that.
    That doesn't surprise me, to be honest. The unlocked versions are almost certainly the european spec phones, which were not tested by the FCC with AWS (1700/2100) and they have a separate FCC ID from the north-american model. The north-american model is FCC ID "PYAA" and was tested on AWS and thus it is enabled on the Rogers phones and the Dev Kit phones.

    I called the AT&T sales line and they told me they could unlock it at the store or call a 1800 number to unlock it.
    A SlickDeals thread about this said you can pre-order the device with plan. Then contact AT&T to cancel the plan. After receiving your device, contact them again for unlocked code. I don't see anything wrong with it because you actually pay the price for the device and you don't support to stay with them.

    About the different version, we really not know for sure which one is pentaband. Some people had device early, but those device might not really a production device after all, like dev phone. On the other hand, Roger not even has any device in-stock or show any page for customers to order, so it just likes AT&T, hold off for some reason. Since when Lumia was announced, those specs have changed a lot. As far as I can tell, I am sure that these devices are capable of pentaband, but like some Symbian model, Nokia can have firmware that disable the band it does need.

    Well it's only a matter of days now before posters here get their hands on AT&T 920s and we will find out then what the situation is with AWS frequencies.

    Hoping for the best!

    Call the website that some posted about the cheap Lumia 920 pre-order price (Welectronics). They said they don't know for sure if the device is gonna support T-Mobile or what version of the 920. However, they are really sure that the device will hit their store on Friday. So my guess is to wait until Friday to confirm :(.

    another proud member of the dev phone on tmo group.

    interesting tidbit, if you go to extras+info this is how the phone is described

    RM-820_nam_canada_246

    I think the rogers phone and dev phones are one and the same!

    Think maybe that last number (246 vs 200) is just the build/patch number?

    Someone said over SlickDeals as this phone will be freaking cheap as 350 when Amazon releases it and of course, it is unlocked. Now we just need to wait until Friday as least to see any confirm about the band and versions, then if some one need to buy it cheap, they could wait until Christmas to get it :D.

    AT&T sell it for $449 so after a month or so, especially holiday season, it could go lower than that. It is possible. However, unless Nokia want to do that to get more people with Lumia, I don't really expect that price since we don't really for sure if that phone from Amazon will be pentaband like all of us are hoping for or not.

The refarm might not be done by the end of this year and the LTE will come late in 2013 so it could be a long wait.
    By then it would be like buying a lumia 900 ;)
    by then Lumia 930 or whatever new version would have arrived...
    lol..just saying..it will be a really long wait...
    this is basically AT&T arm twisting and making people sign up their network if anyone wants a lumia 920 and working full speed

    Buy a roger or go with the dev version which right now is freaking expensive on Ebay. Roger, on the other hand, is less expensive.

    Both Roger and Dev seem to have some issue with tethering, but some people manage to get it working by trigger an OTA update. Aside from that, data should work but in some case, you need to add custom APN.

    I preordered the Grey Lumia 920 from gsmnation.com. They tell me they'll have stock late this week or early next week with the 1700 band intact. I'm going to try it with my TMobile SIM. Hopefully all goes well.

    Really want a 920 running on T-Mobile. I want to make sure it will work on AWS and be compatible with future LTE plans for T-Mobile. Negri is only selling black ones too unlocked from Rogers. Is anyone able to determine the difference between the Dev Unlocked and the Rogers ones?

    I am tempted to get the 8X because it will just work on AWS and cause of the better front facing camera.

    Not so many different. In fact they are the same. The only different is that dev phone is not branded like Rogers so you don't have Rogers start-up screen and it has some dev capability inside.

    If you want to get the 8X, get the one from T-Mobile because other variants will not have AWS band to work with TMO.

    Makes sense. Would like to get the dev unlocked one, but only seeing them for $900+

    I think someone needs to share the firmware files so we can flash it to our locked so called 'simfree' EE devices.
    Had the phone nearly two weeks now and not had any sim recognised in it.

    I ordered 4 free orange Sims and none work!!
    ordered 2 payandgo tmobile sims and will see how that pans out.

    Pretty p!ssed about it. :mad:
