    And keep my 1020? the Nokia option on Tmobile are not really compelling for me, plus i don't want to loose my awesome LTE speeds. I've heard the Nokia 1020 isn't compatible with LTE on Tmobile. Is there anyone here using an Unlocked ATT branded Nokia Lumia 1020 on Tomobile and if so how is the experience.

    I need to know this asap as i'm anxious to get of ATT immediately. I'm even considering copping a Nexus 5 to tide me over until a Nokia 1020 equivalent comes out on Tmobile.

    BTW. i ******* LOVE my 1020. Such an amazing phone. Has produced some amazing images for me and i don't even feel pressed to use my Nex-6 as much as i'm able to create great images with this device.

    You'll need to get the Canadian Rogers 1020 if you want to take advantage of the full capability of T-Mobile.
    Pentaband and whatnot.

    I will say that I've considered the very same thing, but the 52mb/s LTE I get at home on AT&T has me hooked for the time being.
    Oh well.
    If Windows Phone 8 doesn't prove themselves more appealing to developers by next summer, I'm going to be looking at whatever Sony's new flagship is, or devolving back into the Apple camp.
    It gets tiring defending Windows Phone to people when I have to explain missing features are "on the way".

    Have you considered Straight Talk?
    You still use AT&T cellular network and they have LTE sims now.
    T-Mobile, have to have an unlocked phone. Straight Talk, an AT&T phone usually does not have to be unlocked

    I need to ditch ATT but still want to use AT&T LTE band. This is a good idea. Tmobile is horrible in my area.

    I bought an ATT 1020 off eBay off contract. I purchased an unlock code from an online unlocker (not sure if sharing the name is accepted). I ended my service with ATT last week. It's currently using TMobile's LTE network in the Chicagoland network.

    Yes, I'd like to know too. I'm waiting for my Straight talk sim but I rather pay $30/m instead of the $45/m as I don't use it as a primary voice/txt phone, just for the data. :)

    Btw, I did not a few unlocking companies and most either didn't offer it or failed at unlocking and are in the process of refunding me...

    Wasn't it just announced that the new FCC chairman made a new policy that every carrier has to unlock phones now?

    I used cellunlocker. It was $25 and I got the code the same day. I wish I would have recorded it because I then went back for my 920 to unlock. The Lumias were painless. They quoted almost quadruple to unlock an iPhone so instead I waited for att. In the end I brought 5 phones over to Tmobile without problem.

    How long ago was that? Cellunlocker doesn't offer any codes for AT&T Nokia Lumia's on their website right now.

    How is your coverage? Are you getting consistently good speeds around town? Whenever i'm in Chicago, my speeds with ATT were surprisingly crappy.

    TX6: My receipt is from October 7th. I do know that AT&T has restricted bulk unlocking for 3rd parties within the past month. I assumed that only affected iPhones but if it impacts Lumias then I can see why cellunlocker.net has pulled the option. Your best bet is to go through AT&T then, whether you are a customer or not. I had already left AT&T but needed a 4S unlocked and they processed the request within a few days.

    Winfone: I was with TMo when they first came to Chicago as VoiceStream until 2010 or so. I never minded the Edge network or 3G (but I'm not certain whether they had that when I was a customer). Now, on my second go-around, I'd say that data is just OK in comparison to AT&T. However, I never encountered drop calls with my spouse. On TMo, it happens from time to time. It's OK I would say. I was in the Citibank building yesterday and all of my phones were without signal. At my workplace, I'm sitting with a solid 4 or 5 bars.

    I unlocked mine with a $3 eBay unlock. Worked just fine. I'm on t-mobile for $30. I don't even use the internet and the 30 mb goes real fast. I had a terrible time with straight talk customer support on my iPhone. If you need customer support from straight talk you're in trouble. I haven't had decent customer support from ATT either so I guess that customer support on any of the cellular services might be non existent.

    Was this recently? I've not seen anything on eBay for unlocking the 1020 from ATT, just other carriers like Rogers.

    Hello anybody that can help will be my "Superman hero".

    I bought a Nokia Lumia 1020 from a gumtree seller in the UK, I checked the IMEI number of the device several times for legitimacy and if the phone was paid in full with no obligations. Everything was in order and legit. I have tried to get this phone unlocked since the 15th of October sending email after email after email to Vodafone, every time I get the same automated message. I've tried the att route but with no joy. I have already tried 3 companies that claim they can unlock the Nokia Lumia 1020, no luck again, 2 of them at least refunded me, the 3rd disappeared into thin air.

    I am now at a stage where I wonder if I should chuck the Nokia in the bottom drawer and leave it there as it seems to me that Nokia the brand will soon also end up in bottom drawer of Microsoft....

    If there is anyone out there that can help PLEASE!!!!!

    I would try the Straight Talk like the one person was saying, its cheaper than dirt. You're using AT&T's towers so you'll still get the higher data speeds like you would normally on AT&T, without the Gigantic price gouging that they do. T-Mobile always sounds good on paper but in the real world you'll usually be without data, or data so slow you'll give up on the page loading after 5 minutes.

    Straight talk throttles and depending on where u are, they throttle always. I have am ATT iphone 5 from work and ST for personal and running speedtests with both, my 1020 cannot get speeds higher than 9Mbps while my ip5 goes higher always and sometimes by a lot so the bandwidth is there. My Lumia just cannot go higher than 9Mbps. I'm in the Bay Area, CA.
