    I'm currently stuck in a contract with Sprint, but I'll be switching to T-Mobile. They don't have the lumia 640 available yet, so I wanted to know what other Nokia phones you can use on the T-Mobile network, or where I could find the information. Thanks.

    The ones that are guaranteed to be ready from the get go are the T-Mobile branded Lumia

    521
    925
    810 (stuck on old firmware though)
    635

    However, there are devices you can get to work on T-Mobile, but you'll have to make sure the bands line up in order to get LTE and stuff.
    e.g. some Lumia 735 and 830 models can work on T-Mobile, same with some others like I think the ROGERS (Canada) 1020...

    You can get a AT&T branded 1520 to work on T-Mobile.

    As long as it's a GSM based phone, it'll work on T-Mobile. It all depends on what type of data speeds you want to run on T-Mobile's network.

    You can also get a 735 (rm-1039) from B&H. Also supports LTE with T-Mobile.

    If your looking for a Lumia 1520, go for the 1520.3 or RM-938 (same phone, different names).

    Best "Last Gen" T-Mo branded 925
    Best "Factory Unlocked" 1520.3
    Best "Current Gen" wait for the T-Mo branded 640

    Only option 2 cuts you out from the valuable WiFi calling. Or go really nuts and find some international Factory Unlocked models that support the frequencies you need like...

    Nokia Lumia 1320 RM-995 8GB Smartphone A00017184 B&H Photo Video (should be a great match)

    Are you currently using your 1520 on T-Mobile's network, or AT&T?

    I'm using it on both networks, there is a simple tweak that will turn on the T-Mobile 1700 band, which turns the AT&T 1520 into a 1520.3 ๐Ÿ˜.

    T-Mobile's network is faster I've seen versus AT&T however T-Mobile's network in the rural outlying areas is spotty. When I used to live in metro Orlando, I got excellent signal quality and service. I moved out of the metro area into the rural areas and I had no signal. AT&T covers rural areas better thus the reason why I switched. I can get 25-30 mbps down and 10-15 up on AT&T in the rural areas with 5 full bars of LTE.

    I would not say that. The tweak enables the AWS 1700 band on WCDMA, but can not double the internal storage to 32GB or enable Qi wireless charging.

    Thanks everyone! :) I just wanted to leave Sprint as soon as possible and get a new phone. I currently have the HTC 8XT, which has been giving me trouble lately. But since the Lumia 640 isn't too far away from release, I think I'll buy that instead. If not, then I'll get the 925 :)

    Get an ATT branded Lumia 830 and unlock it via 3rd party. If you are in a major Metro area then you will still get LTE on T-Mobile.
    Also an older 925 is a solid second choice.

    ATT unlocks phones for non ATT customers for free and pretty hassle free.

    I've unlocked 4 this year. 520x2, 635 and 830. Only one of the 520s got rejected and I simply resubmitted and it came through.
