    I was on GSM Nation this morning about to purchase an ATIV S when I decided to take a final look at other Windows Phone options when I stumbled across this listing:

    Nokia Lumia 920 Red Unlocked

    The listing shows up as "Nokia Lumia 920 (Unlocked) Red American Version 4G LTE 700/1700" and when you check network compatibility it shows this:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	GSMNation Lumia 920 Unlocked 4G chart.png 
Views:	18 
Size:	44.5 KB 
ID:	32139

    Is this possible? If so, I'd like some feedback ASAP as I have T-Mobile and I'd like to buy this. Any help or input would be appreciated.

    Yes it is possible. I currently own a black Rogers unlocked Nokia Lumia 920 and it runs on 4G since I don't have LTE in my area but when it does come I will be able to use LTE.

    Can you provide something to back this? Maybe a screen shot of your phone. I apologize for questioning your authenticity but I'd like to be completely sure before I make the leap.

    Currently the American model is not available unlocked, in retail version.

    The only model fully compatible with the T-Mobile USA 3G and 4G LTE frequencies is the Canadian model from Rogers.
    This model can be found in the market unlocked and is also unbranded, meaning no Roger logos are on the devices, besides the startup logo on device boot.

    Make sure they are referring to the Rogers model. Many online stores are copying/pasting the specs from Nokia's website the the LTE frequencies for the Lumia 920 on nokia's websites was and still is a mess.

    Wow. Really? What if I just take a screenshot of anything and just Photoshop it to have whatever you want to see. Will that be authentic enough for you?

    Boy, do you have some nerve.

    I did the same, I unlocked my Lumia 920 with AT&T support help. Unfortunately, the speed I am getting on the T-Mobile network is EDGE in my area in Hollywood, FL 33312.

    I too have unlocked AT&T Lumia 920. I do get 4G at many places around the Philly area but I believe its the refarmed 1900mhz band. I am lead to believe that aws band 1700/2100 is disabled in the At&T branded phone after reading some forums in ZDA. I don't think Tmobile has light up LTE yet here so I don't know if the phone will actually get those bands.

    You need either set the apn by yourself or download access points. I have been to 33312 a few times and I always have solid 4G. The whole miami big area has 1900 refarmed, no towers left behind. I am using same hardware as yours.

    ##3282# >> settings >> cellular as 3g band 2

    This makes the network stick to 1900, but if i were you i will leave everything to automatic

    Anyone has any solutions to the only edge thing?

    There are two variants of the Lumia 920 on Rogers. The ones that have 700/1700 on the title work perfect for Tmobile. I have the white version of the same model. I get up to 20mb download on HPSDA + in Portland. It IS legit. GSM Nation is just as good as Negri Electronics.
    Added note. These Lumias also have the 42MB HPSDA+ AND LTE. I haven't confirmed LTE yet on T-Mobile. Just like ATT though, there are Tmobile APNs for 4g and LTE separately.

    Interesting, so Lumia 920 support T-Mobile LTE?
    What frequency band does T-Mobile LTE run on?

    For full nationwide T-Mobile support (area's not running the refarmed 1900mhz band) you'll need a 920 that is pentaband that has the 1700mhz capability. An unlocked AT&T 920 does NOT have the 1700mhz band so an unlocked AT&T 920 will only work on T-Mobile if your geographic location is currently running the refarmed 1900mhz T-Mobile frequency. This is an old article, but it does list a large group of cities currently running 1900mhz T-Mobile 3G+.

    T-Mobile lists all 49 cities with 1900MHz HSPA+ service as one user finds small patch of LTE in NYC | PhoneDog

    The most compatible option is to get buy an unlocked pentaband 920 (Rogers is the only carrier with a 920 variant that is pentaband) so you have coverage and full services in every T-Mobile service area.

    I have been using my AT&T Lumia 920 on T-Mobile for two weeks now. Sadly, all I get is EDGE in WA. LTE does seem to work in Seattle the one time I went there, but no where else. Reception is terrible for voice everywhere. Will probably just switch to 521 to hold me over for something better.

    I've been picking up LTE, for the past week in several areas, getting 10down and 4-5 upload. But its not everywhere but its working.
