I'm still running my old HTC HD7 and thinking about buying the 925. I noticed postings at Negri Electronics about a Nokia Lumia 925.2 (Unlocked) (Black) that I had not seen before.
Does anyone know what the .2 designation means, and most importantly for me if it would run on all of T-Mobile's bands here in the US??? From my research it looks as if it would, but I want to make sure and I am wondering if anyone already knows what's happening with the .2 designation.
My concern is that I will not live in a LTE area and I want to make sure the phone would work as a 3g phone and not fall back to 2g edge speeds.

Looks like a brand-free unlocked version for North America. (LTE bands, typically the non-carrier versions are the international versions that don't fully function in North America)
From what i can tell it should have all the bands for t-mobile LTE AND 3G.

How weird! I was just on Negri's website earlier and didn't even notice that with the .2 at the end of the 925. Hmm, it certainly does seem to have the right bands to be completely compatible with T-Mobile US! It's a shame it's not in white and with 32GB of storage.
Had to edit this because I just saw that they do have white AND grey as well. Very interesting...

I like the fact that there's no T-Mobile branding. I still haven't got a job yet, otherwise I'd be all over one of those......

From the specifications it looks like this the T-Mobile version minus the branding (clean firmware) which should support LTE/HSPA+ on AWS. Now I need to get my hands on the firmware to flash it on my T-Mobile 925

If my understanding is incorrect please correct me.

Message: I note what might be a recent addition to your site, the Nokia Lumia 925.2 I am a T-Mobile customer in the US and to my eye it looks as if the 925.2 would be compatible with T-Mobile's 2G/3G and LTE. Is that true? I live in an area that does not yet have LTE and would want to make sure that the phone does T-Mobile 3G and would not fall back to 2G/EDGE speeds. Finally it looks as if it is unbranded, is that true?

mmmm.... I see that Wi-Fi calling uses plan minutes. So I am a little lost as to why the feature might be so useful. I guess that it is likely that my Wi-Fi connection at home may be significantly faster than my local coverage. However for me at home my phone is pretty much just a phone and only needs to works as a phone. At home all my fast internet needs are handled on my computer or Xbox.

It's obvious the international pentaband version of the 925. Nokia is pushing the 925 in Europe real hard. I was just in France and I saw 925 ads on every French TV channel I watched.

What about this version "for international use only"? http://negrielectronics.com/nokia-lu...l#.Uk7jH50o6mQ Is it somehow blocked from functioning on Tmobile USA or is that just a warning required by law with a wink-wink to the buyer?

What I do see is that the phone you linked to has WCDMA for it's 3G bands whereas the one I've linked to is mentioning HSDPA. Apparently HSDPA is an upgrade of WCDMA. I cannot say if that is significantly relevant to the question about if the phone is usable here in the US. If metalchick or someone else doesn't weigh in with a conclusive answer you may want to put that question to Negri. If you do, please post the response.
