    Item: Nokia Lumia 830 - unlocked RM-985 model.
    Price: $200 - I am looking for a Lumia 640 or maybe 635 and will do a partial trade.
    Locked/Unlocked: Locked but unlockable
    Condition: Mint
    Item Location: Harrisonburg, VA
    Shipping Details: USPS Priority, in a flat-rate small box.
    Payment Options: PayPal Gift

    The time has come for me to reposition myself as my mobile needs have shifted significantly, but you can benefit!

    Once the stricken ATT model (RM-983) this Lumia has been reborn as the 985 model courtesy parts by gordonfink, which is also unlocked. Includes the coveted Lumia Denim firmware as well.

    Do note that since this phone was originally a 983 it has the dark grey body as opposed to the silver one of most other 830's.
    It looks cool with white.

    Includes:
    Phone (battery)
    White and green back covers, the green has an ATT logo on it.
    ~8 inch USB cable.
    translucent-grey INCIPIO firm plastic case.

    As noted above I'm in the market for an ATT-compatible Lumia 640 and if any unlocked or ATT 640 users want to upgrade for the phone and some cash.

    We removed the 983 motherboard and replaced it with one from a 985.

    I'm selling an 830.
    I'm looking for an ATT or unlocked 640 + cash.

    I'm thinking no 635 at this time.

    My sleep deprivation caught up to me and made me a bit too hyper, how much cash are you fishing for?

    Right now I'm shooting for a 640 + $95, a bit more if its an ATT model. Also depending on condition and smaller details.

    Wait... so Locked or Unlocked ROM finally? If this is unlocked and you are good for ATT 640 + cash, I have sent PM.

    Its the brain of an unlocked 985 in the body of a 983.

    I've responded, your offer's a low lower than I'd like tbh.

    The RM-985 motherboard fits perfectly inside an ATT-based RM-983 body. Once you do the motherboard swap, you have a bonafide 985, unlocked, with full Denim. That's what Xandros did on this one.

    The result is a 985, but with black trim.

    bump!

    I will entertain other offers as long as its a Lumia and worth significantly less than this 830. (cash/PayPal from the buyer will cover the discrepancy, which is negotiable, but I'm not axing $60 of the asking price.)

    As of now, the ideal deal for me is a 640 + $100 = 830 bundle.

    FWIW - the last RM-985 I sold went for $220. A 640 brand new is only $70. By my math, this is a great deal!

    I guess I'm open to 635's as well, but with more cash that is.

    You can buy this phone outright for $190!

    Pardon my ignorance, but what exactly is the difference between the two motherboard models?

    Well, until today evidently, only the 985 had full Denim. Also, the 985 is factory unlocked, so you are not dependent upon a carrier for updates - they will come directly from MS. It can be used on any GSM.

    Microsoft appears to have pulled Update 2 off the WPRT servers for RM-983.

    In a nutshell; the Phone was debranded from AT&T, put on the Microsoft track for OTA and is now Factory Unlocked for any SIM with a North American Radio onboard.

    Yep - safer it seems to stick with the 985.

    Like I said before - a 640 plus some cash is a deal. Geez, if this doesn't move soon, I might do it. Someone save me.

    I stick it in a USPS flat rate box and mail it at a post office. Tracking number comes afterwards.

    Could you do next day shipping? Likewise.

    It's Priority so it'll probably be 2-4 days shipping.

    If you'd like to have the 830 in your hands first before giving up the 640 that's perfectly fine, I'd prefer a $200 payment until the 640 arrives here however, half of which will be refunded upon receiving the phone.

    May I have pictures?
