    I have a situation.

    I have the 1520 RM 937 and im using it on T-Mobile. Im getting 2G & 3G fine but no HSPA+. I thought I could live without LTE but now i'm having second thoughts. The 1520.3 RM 938 from Negri is backordered. I had planned to return this phone or sell it on ebay and buy from Negri.

    What do I do?
    btw...I love my 1520

    I'd hang on to the 937 you're currently using, order a 938 from Negri and wait for the backorders for fill in. If Negri is like most other online retailers, they won't charge your credit/debit card until they actually ship the backordered unit to you.

    Once you get your RM-938 in-hand, setup on T-Mobile and you're happy, then sell your RM-937.

    Alternatively you could:

    - Keep the RM-937 as a backup device, just in case anything unforeseen happens to 938, you'll have a backup device while your 938 is undergoing warranty service if needed

    - Use the RM-937 as a WiFi only device...leave it in the bathroom and use it as a surfin' device while you taking care of biological functions

    - Loan the RM-937 to someone who's considering embarking upon a glorious Windows Phone adventure, especially if they're an AT&T user so they can experience LTE and a huge screen (that's what I did with my original NL900 - I gave it to one of my work-mates who totally digs WP now and has requested that, when he's eligible for a new phone, our company issue him a NL920)

    Yeah, I guess it depends on the company who sold you the device as to whether or not they require the shipper to get a signature/original signature.

    Unfortunately Negri Electronics just discontinued it... I have ordered mine last week, but I was too late... it went into back order and now seems that they will not carry it anymore... any other place from where could be possible to get it???

    It is incredible how difficult has been to find it.... very disappointing...

    Try Omegacell. They have the RM-938 (or are getting them in next couple days).

    Here's what I got the other day from Newegg. Works fine on T-Mobile. I get LTE, H, H+. I'm not sure why it is H and H+ instead of 2G/3G/4G. The box does not list 2100 LTE - I don't know if it matters and I don't know if I'm in a refarmed 1900mhz area.

    Also, the phone has 32GB.

    Ordered mine from Omega Cell (since I'm in Canada) and should receive it tomorrow. I got my FedEx tracking number within 20 minutes of my order so here's hoping I get it tomorrow so I can play with it this weekend!

    I've ordered mine from Omega Cell as well but don't expect to have it until Monday/Tuesday. I'm in Ontario and it will take 3-4 days since I didn't want to pay for next day shipping. Soon as I receive it, then I will go to Wind to buy Nano SIM and (or cut existing SIM) and start using this awesome phone !

    I just cut my sim with a scissors and then used one of my wife's nail file things and it worked fine until I got my replacement sim from operator. Just be careful not to cut too much off, that's why I used the file. You can take more off it but you can't put some on to it, as my father used to say, "measure twice and cut once"

    Definitely cheaper! You can't beat $595 w/ free shipping and no tax on Newegg. Mine is still "packaging," please do post pics once you received it.

    I ordered my RM-938 from the Canadian OmegaCell. Unfortunately Newegg doesn't provide Canadian shipping, and with the import fees, 13% taxes and lower value of the Canadian dollar these days I would end up paying almost the same amount. I ordered also the nano sim cutter. Can't wait to have them both in my hands.

    No doubt. My SIM card's service is tied to my company's AT&T plan, and our telecom team is impossible to deal with, especially regarding BYOD stuff. They love the little bit of control they have and milk it for all it's worth.

    Anyway, I popped into an AT&T store, which happens to be about 100 feet from my company's HQ, and asked about the possibility of them transferring service from the micro-SIM in my 920 to a nano-SIM.

    Their answer was funny, but actually really helpful (I'll paraphrase a bit). "We used to help you guys out all the time, but they just cut us off from your company's account. Go see the guys at the cell phone store in the mall up the street, they cut SIMs all the time. Just in case, take this nano-SIM with you in case you still want to try and get your telecom team to transfer the service over".

    So, I'm headed up on Monday to have the pro's at the mall cut my SIM.

    You seem to have ordered one day ahead of me. I am in Ontario as well (Toronto). Let us know when you receive the phone, and what you think of it.

    Went to Wind already to pick up the Nano SIM. I can then activate it soon as I get the phone. Hope there are no issues. I've read that tethering might be a problem but apparently there is a work around. Crossing fingers for seamless trouble free functionality. Can't wait !

    Thanks guys for posting all this information, very helpful!

    Now, it appears RED color option is exclusive for AT&T phones because all stores mentioned here, carrying the RM-938, do not offer the phone in red, how annoying is that!!

    Hi all,

    Yesterday I got the lumia! it is great.. today i went to AT&T to get the new sim as the old one was not possible to cut to nano. It work like a charm. No issues.. it gets LTE and I also was able to manage to work the internet sharing via installing the spanish language. I still have the grandfathered unlimited plan, so it will be great to test how it works.

    Phone came with English, Spanish (Mexico) and Portuguese installed, so I have to install the Spanish (Spain), as this phone is intended to be used in Latin America in order to get the internet sharing to work.

    Awesome news raruh. That was my experience as well regarding internet sharing on the 1520.
