    does that mean that I can buy a RM-938 and put it on AT&T? Or will they only work with T-Mobile?
    It should work with both, you just have an extra band that won't be used on AT&T

    this /\ ... is what i am very curious to find out something solid on as the device rolls out. if i am going to spend my money, i would really like to decide to go with the device as it was intended to be from Nokia, not what at&t believes i 'should' want & need.

    Nokia Lumia 929, which is the 5 inch version of the 1520 with the same specs, is scheduled to be announced some time. We just don't know when.

    Unfortunately this kind of thing is likely to become more common. LTE bands vary across the world and it may be difficult to make one phone that works well with all of them. Probably the manufacturers will get there in the end, but it will take some time.
    I think the iPhone 5S and 5C have seven variants each. It's bad news for everyone - extra cost for manufacturers, higher prices for customers and less portability. :-(

    The one exception I would point out is the idea of the RM-938 if you buy one and put it on Tmobile. Although this is the latin american variant, it actually fits onto tmobile's network better than the US variant will. Then, Tmobile offers international roaming to something like 100 countries at no extra charge. That's true portability, the only thing is trying to buy one from brazil or something

    haha I like it. I know there are websites that sell international unlocked gsm phones to customers in the US, but they tend to get the phones sometime after the US counterparts are released..

    Does Nokia make 1520s in Brazil? If not they will have the heck taxed out of them and won't be worth the importation.
