    Thanks, will do. I love my 1520, but wouldn't mind selling to get QI and ATT LTE.

    GRRREAT!!! I hope T-Mobile won't destroy the beautiful Lumia 1520 like AT&T did by removing Qi wireless charging and reducing the storage to 16 gb. ... I know, I know, AT&T has a 32 gb model but, it only comes in black.

    What I want is a RED Lumia 1520 with Qi wireless charging, 32 gb of internal storage, and LTE US bands!

    I have the black 1520 with 32GB from AT&T and it does not have Qi and it states that it is the RM-940.

    Which carrier are you going to use this with?
    If it's AT&T, I'll be interested to know if you get LTE, and if you can use it for Internet sharing. Those of the problems people reported with the 937. Something about LTE being on band 4.

    Yes, I'll be throwing this up on AT&T.

    For me, LTE would just be icing on the cake, I can live with 3G or 4G. I can't live without Qi though. I have two JBL Power Up speakers, one at home and one at work, and four Qi charging plates.

    I've actually never even tried or used Internet Sharing.

    Anyways, if Band 4 refers to 1900, then the RM-938 should work with LTE: BYOD – Bring Your Own Phone or Tablet to AT&T and Save

    What has been reported is "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"

    Can you tell what the one your buying will do?

    From everything I can tell, the RM-938 should work on AT&T LTE.

    From GSM Arena's site, here are all of the 1520s' bands (I highlighted the RM-938's):

    This is from AT&T's BYOD device page:

    And this is from the LTE Band Wiki Page

    The fourth column in the table refers to the frequency's' Band.

    It will sure be amazing, if this is the unicorn 938 that will work on AT&T LTE. Can't wait to hear your results. Let me know by p.m. or smoke signal, because I will be buying one, the next minute. I too have invested in 4 Qi Chargers, and I'm still living with my 920. At this point can only hope!

    Most def will keep you (and the this thread) updated with results/experiences. Yes, at this point, I can only also hope. Worse comes to worse, I return the device or live with 3G/4G.

    I like your reference to it as a "Unicorn 1520". No doubt!

    Major bummer, unfortunately the eBay seller (they're named "buybuybox" and I was communicating with Kitty) informed me that her supplier has RM-938's, but basically they're in such short supply and high demand that she was not able to obtain one for me.

    So the lesson here is that RM-938's are out there, the do exist, but they're extremely rare, hence @jssmarathon's 'Unicorn' moniker.

    Anyways, the eBay seller buybuybox was straight up, honest and refunded the money back to my PayPal account promptly.

    I purchased from BuyBuyBox before - they were okay, though slow on the shipping.

    Anyway, Negri has this "unicorn" 1520 in stock as well, though it's $75 more but comes in 32gb. I just ordered one, as did a few other people and we are awaiting the phone.

    I will report back as well. The reps confirmed on several occasions that this is the RM-938 model and I intend to use it on T-Mobile. If it comes in time, however, I have an Aio Wireless SIM card with a month of service on it, so I'll test out AT&T LTE for you guys as well. Happy to help/confirm.

    Just doesn't seem right. the Seller lists an auction for something he doesn't even have in his possession, also while knowing that its hard to find? seems like he was UNABLE to find it at all then.

    seems like the lesson would be: Have the seller VERIFY x3 that they actually have the device and send you a picture of the device with their ebay ID in the picture with the said device.

    Cool, please let us know what they say. I tried to upgrade my shipping this morning (impatience keeps getting the best of me) and they said it was too late and my order would be shipping within 24-48 hours. Bummer, but I guess that's good! I should have it in five business days which equates to what in FedEx terms? Eternity.

    Hey Collin -

    Negri tweeted back "We do have them and the order will ship within 24 hours of being processed." So, I went ahead and placed and order.

    Its a good sign that they could not upgrade your order though, I would imagine that means they actually do have the devices available to ship!
