    Hi everyone. I am sure this topic must have been beat to death already but I'm afraid I was unable to find any definitive answers on the various forums I lurked on - including this one.

    My question is, does the Lumia 1520.3 work flawlessly with T-Mobile in every and all uses?
    My current (and broken, hence the tentative 1520.3 purchase) Lumia 920 is unlocked. I bought it from Amazon when it came out - only to realize that it had been unlocked with a code when it started its life as an AT&T phone first. As such, I was told I never really experienced 4G LTE (or the counterpart to T-Mobile).

    The worst part was, I could never send multimedia messages, or receive them. I couldn't read group text messages, open pictures, voice recordings, etc. I couldn't send any out either.

    If the Lumia 1520.3 can indeed send/receive multimedia messages then I'm sold. I was told it already has the capability to actually support 4G LTE so that's not a worry for me.

    Come on! With all the sales in the U.S., there's no way someone hasn't tried the 1520.3 with T-Mobile's network yet. And unless the views are bots or fakes, I'm sure someone must have something relevant to share.

    Internet has said RM-938 works with T-Mobile. Just need detailed confirmation that it can receive/send multimedia messages.

    Daniel told me on Twitter that it does.

    I am using a l1520.3(rm-938) on T-Mobile with no issues - mms, sms, lte, threaded messages, etc. all work perfectly. I also saw an article on wpc that newegg has the phone for $494... So get it, you will not regret. The only thing that is not present is wifi calling, which personally I have no idea of and could care less about.
    Hope this helps.

    Thank you both for your responses.
    I purchased the RM-938 on NewEgg and it should arrive later today.

    Looking forward to being able to freely send and receive pictures again. For the past year or so, my so-called unlocked Lumia 920 had been saying "Get Content Media" whenever I got a picture, group text, sound recording, etc.

    What you ate describing might have been an incorrectly set up mms, ore some network issue. I've had the same problem ( intermittently) with my wp7 dell venue pro ( unlocked,with tmobile) radio. Hopefully the l1520 will set this up for you automatically as it did for me.
