    Dude. I will murder someone if I'm stuck with the battery hungry dp. My rage would be enough to send me right into the arms of at&t. Rather pay more a month and get a much wider device selection. Unlimited data isn't worth ****listed device support.

    I share your pain. As much as I love my 925, I plan on selling both my 925 & 521 & move to AT&T upgrading to the 1520 for me and the 635 for my wife.

    Hello,

    I know there has been no official announcement about the Lumia 930 on T-Mobile but comparing the RF specs for the 930 to that of the 925 which I own and operate on the T-Mobile network it sure appears that the 930 should work on T-Mobile's network. Anyone have any reason to feel otherwise? In the past I ran a 920 on T-Mobile and had some issues because a few of the bands were missing but band for band the 925 and 930 overlap (with one additional UMTS band for the 930 (900Mhz).

    Lumia 925 Radio Specs:
    GSM:
    850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz
    UMTS:
    850, 1900, 2100 MHz

    Lumia 930 Radio Specs:
    GSM:
    850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz
    UMTS:
    850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz
    Microsoft just needs to unlock the U.S. Radios for all carriers to make a U.S. Version of the 930. It would operate the same as any unlocked North America model phone.

    Not sure where you got those numbers but you're missing 1700 which the t-mobile 925 has and the 930 doesn't. You can however get the lumia 1520 which has all the frequencies and works great, it's just a bit big...

    I took the plunge with the 930 International Version bought from FGS Traders on Amazon.

    I have everything working except WiFi Calling. Even Internet Sharing works.

    Phone, Web, Browser, SMS, MMS all work very well.

    Data - True, there is no more LTE, but with the fast processor this phone has, I have not felt any large difference between HSPA+ on the 930 vs LTE on the 1020.

    I am VERY happy with the Lumia 930!!!

    Totally with you on your statement! But Microsoft had still going with the carrier exclusivity based marketing strategy; which excludes everyone other then the sole carrier that contract for that particular phone model. I just hoping Microsoft will in 2015 go to an "Unlocked" models for the U.S.
