    Hello. I have a AT&T Nokia Lumia 635 on there network and I was wanting to switch to T-Mobile next week any advice for which Lumia device is worth using on there network with out a contract that's under $200? I was considering a T-Mobile variant but I would have to pay more to have the same device so I was maybe thinking a T-Mobile Nokia Lumia 925.

    The 925 from T-Mobile is over 200$. You seem to be left with a T-Mobilel 635, 530, or 521. The 635 you have is probably locked to At&t. Have you thought about trying Consumer Cellular which can use phones locked to AT&T. You would have your choice of alot more phones and you would still use At&T's network of which Consumer Cellular is a MVNO. I have three AT&T phones my family are using on Consumer Cellular. You are not locked into a plan and yet you use AT&T's extensive network. Plus your AT&T phones will still be updated by AT&T which I think has the best support for WP8. Think about it.

    I would recommend using a prepaid carrier like H2O Wireless or Airvoice Wireless that works on the AT&T network.

    Gently used 925 can be had quite a bit less than $200...

    How about a Factory Unlocked Blu Win HD? Buy Unlocked BLU Win HD - Microsoft Store Comes in kicky colors, good bang for the buck and it is Factory Unlocked for use with any SIM based service in the US... Drawback - No LTE.

    Is the Blu Win HD good? I'm used to Lumia devices due to the quality

    Have you requested an unlock code from AT&T to unlock your device?

    Net10, Straight Talk, and Cricket Wireless are also all good options. Net10 and Straight Talk can be used on T-Mobile or AT&T's network depending on what SIM card you get and Cricket Wireless uses AT&T's network.

    No due to being on prepaid.

    I'm curious about Blu phones, but have not actually even handled one. For actual user reviews see the Blu HD subforum: BLU Win HD - Windows Central Forums


    I just put up information on airtime resellers (mvno) here:

    Why not just keep your 635 and take it to cricket?

    Your phone will work there, you don't even need to unlock it first.

    How long have you had it on their network? If you've had it on prepaid with them for at least 6 months you should be able to get the unlock code.

    It will work on Net10 and Straight Talk as well without being SIM unlocked. You will just need one of their SIMs for AT&T's network. My wife and I have been using AT&T SIM locked phones (820, 920, 1520) on Net10 for quite some time now. Your AT&T 635 should work on any AT&T MVNO without a sim unlock.

    Yes. I know that's the case manufacturers fault but I just need a reliable holster as I move around alot and pulling a phone out of a holster is much better than pulling a phone out of your pocket especially this time of year

    Either that deal with my Nokia Lumia 635, sell a iPhone 5C that i'm buying off my brother and maybe save up for a higher end Lumia like a 1520 as I been through phones like I been through socks and want to buy a phone and stick with it.

    Just as long as I can find a Lumia for around this price range $150-$200 as I will also would want to sell my AT&T Nokia Lumia 635.
