    Hi , my name is Marco.I am planning to buy a lumia 1020, which will be my first windows phone. I can't decide between the 877 variant or the 875 variant. I am from costa rica but currently living in the US and will move back in a year or so.I know that the 875 won't get LTE on Tmobile, but I really want the stock nokia and windows phone experience. If I buy the International version, will I get updates any faster? The reason the 877 is stillin the question is because of the rom.I'm afraid that If I buy A International version the rom might be in chinese or some other language. Please tell me which variant is the best choice(BTW both are the unlocked versions)Please answer soon.Thanks

    Please use this link below to make a more informed decision:

    Nokia Lumia 1020 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    International should get updates faster. But you need to check frequencies of 3G/H and LTE before deciding which ROM version to buy. To find out which frequencies the carriers support use Wikipedia as well. Hope this helps.

    Marco, you mention Costa Rica. I'm using a RM-875 with LTE on Movistar, and I've tried with Kolbi (por supuesto que no hice mas que probar), and It Works great on LTE, 3G and off course regular GSM. About the updates, you can always flash it as I do.
