    I am hoping to get a European model 1520 unlocked for ATT as I want Q1 charging and the SD expansion as well as larger internal memory.
    Which variant should I be looking for and will it do LTE on att here in us?
    hate that ATT is selling an inferior handset.
    That is why I left Verizon
    THX!

    Any "European" or "global" variant will not support LTE on ATT. Your best bet is to wait for a Canadian variant or the mythical US variant (non ATT) that supports the bands for Tmobile and ATT (this variant may or may not actually exist.

    The RM-938 supports LTE on band 4. It also supports HSPA on AWS, so it'll work on T-Mobile whether the HSPA is on AWS or PCS.

    can you clarify?

    Do you need HSPA for LTE on att?

    Is ATT PCS or AWS?

    Bit of soup there:)

    HSPA is like 3G+ or "4G" if you're AT&T or T-Mobile in the US.

    LTE is the new hotness.

    HSPA or LTE can both work at AWS frequencies (1.7ghz uplink/2.1ghz downlink). On AT&T, they use AWS for LTE. They DO NOT use AWS for HSPA.

    The point is, the RM-938 supports everything the RM-940 does (plus HSPA on AWS, and 2.6GHz), as far as I can tell. Both phones support LTE on either AT&T or T-Mobile. LTE isn't the issue. The issue is HSPA support on T-Mobile if you don't live in an area where T-Mobile is switching their HSPA on AWS to PCS (1.9GHz) (which they are doing to roll out LTE on AWS). The RM-940 supports HSPA on PCS because AT&T already uses that for HSPA themselves.

    So as far as T-Mobile is concerned, if you have the RM-940 unlocked, if there is no T-Mobile LTE in your area, and/or there is no HSPA on PCS in your area (likely related to the LTE), then you're looking at EDGE.

    bottom line is I cannot find a RM-938 anywhere right now correct?

    I mean other than the att stock one because it has no qi charger.

    There was another thread about this.

    Nokia Lumia 1520 (Unlocked, 32GB, Yellow) #LUMIA1520YLW - Expansys USA

    It specs out like the RM-938.

    EDIT: Actually I take that back. It specs out like the RM-937...sorry.
