    What i know and not sure about is as follow:

    1- RM-937, Global version, LTE 800 / 900 / 1800 / 2100 / 2600, 32GB, built in wireless charging.

    2- RM-938, US version, LTE 700 / 850 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 / 2600, 32GB, built in wireless charging.

    3- RM-939, China version, WCDMA HSPA+ version, No LTE.

    4- RM-940, at&t version, LTE 700 / 850 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100, 16GB, No wireless charging built in.

    Any approval for the above?

    Difference between RM-938 and RM-940 is that DTM feature and WCDM1700/2100 (Band 4) will be disabled from RM-940,
    So the RM-940 will only have LTE 2 5 17. Band 4 is T-Mobile.
    #Lumia1520 variant RM-940 for AT&T passes through FCC. Size revealed. Global Variant RM-938 to have inbuilt wireless charging.

    Can band 4 be "enabled" via any hack or set of Phone keypad entries (similar to Android) to select the band or bands that have been disabled? any hack on XDA? I will pith-in some $$$!

    Wait, I don't think that's right. I think the RM-940 supports LTE on band 4 (AT&T has LTE on band 4). Band 4 is really AWS. The problem is, AT&T doesn't use HSPA on AWS, while T-Mobile does. So the RM-940 wouldn't have HSPA on T-Mobile, only LTE or EDGE. UNLESS you are in a so-called "refarmed" area where T-Mobile is moving HSPA from AWS to PCS (1.9GHz), then the RM-940 would support HSPA on T-Mobile. And by the way, no US carrier uses 2.6GHz (which the RM-938 supports). I think it's why people refer to it as the south/central American 1520. Someone correct me if I am wrong...

    With LTE, it's probably better to think in "bands" rather than exclusively in frequencies because there are so many bands splitting so much radio spectrum. A key point is that the "2100" in the RM-937 and RM-938/940 are different because the 937/938 use BOTH 1700 and 2100 to provide LTE band 4. The 938/940 don't do LTE on 1700 and LTE on 2100; they do LTE on band 4, which uses one frequency range for uploading and the other for downloading.

    You just described AWS. Advanced Wireless Services - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The AWS band uses microwave frequencies in two segments: from 1710 to 1755 MHz for uplink, and from 2110 to 2155 MHz for downlink
    Both the RM-938 and RM-940 support AWS frequencies/bands. It's just that RM-940 doesn't support HSPA on AWS, while the RM-938 does. At least that is what I currently believe to be true.

    Hello Nicholas and welcome to Windows Central.

    In Argentina you want RM-938 or 1520.3 as it is sometimes called. Some sites say it is US version, but really the ATT model (RM-940) is US exclusive.

    Get the RM-938. It was made for Latin American markets. You can get a Factory Unlocked 1520.3 RM-938 that will take any SIM card. Also there is a MoviStar Argentina branded variant. If you get one made for MoviStar and that is not your carrier, make sure the SIM tray is unlocked before buying.

    Seriously. Luckily I picked up two before they all went away. One white, one black. Got em from B&H for around the same price. Might consider selling one.

    I think I am about the buy a RM-940, for what I've been searching that phone would also work for LTE in Argentina, can someone confirm this or denied it? please, i appreciatte every oppinion or fact about it (better if it is a fact) jaja
    Besides, what does it mean there is a Movistar branded version? i have Movistar in Argentina so any info is welcome.

    Yes... The ATT RM-940 will work in Argentina so long as the SIM tray is unlocked from ATT.

    This table Availability in Latin America - Microsoft - Global shows that in Argentina 1520 comes in 2 variants. A Country Variant (Factory Unlocked) and a variant specifically marketed through MoviStar. I believe both of those are RM-938

    I don;t know if the carriers get the SIM tray locked to their service in Argentina. I imagine they must, or why would there be a MoviStar edition?

    No. AT&T firmware has locked out flashing to another variant. Sorry.

    You want Field Test Menu for that.

    Can't force 3g networks, I just can mess around with the bands allowed to work.

    Sorry, dude. I don't have a phone that allows Field Test, ATM. The link I dropped above should be the way.

    Try ##3282# from the dialer > settings > network type > 3G only

    This is field test mode and it works on my AT&T 1520.

    Would the RM-937 be a bad choice for the US market?

    RM-937
    Zero LTE. Not just the wrong LTE for the US, but no LTE period.

    AT&T or AT&T mvno and it is fine. It is missing the 1700 MHz band on 3G to get T-Mo H+ in all areas...

    Other than that; it's still the BeastPhoneTM.

    Is the RM-937 known as Lumia 1520.1?

    Edit: My research is showing that the RM-937 is the 1520.1. I would like someone to confirm please.
    @RumoredNow, Are the US LTE bands physically excluded from the RM-937 or deactivated via software?

    I'm afraid I don't have that answer...

    Someone with an RM-937 would be able to answer that if they can access Field Test Menu.

    I'll ask someone who knows cross flashing ROMs to look at your question.
