    On both AT&T and T-Mo, while I find LTE to bench faster on speed tests, I don't really see much real world difference in responsiveness between HSPA+ and LTE. I probably woulda settled on an RM-937 back a few months ago if it did AWS, but since it didn't, I had to go unicorn spotting.

    It appears that they changed the menus for this in 8.1, at least from my memory, but if I go into "Access Point" under settings I have "T-Mobile LTE" as my connection profile or whatever you want to call it. When I view it I see the following settings (any not listed are blank):
    Internet APN
    {
    Access Point Name: fast.t-mobile.com
    Network type: IPv4
    Authentication type: none
    }
    MMS APN
    {
    MMS Access Point Name: fast.t-mobile.com
    MMSC address: http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
    Network type: IPv4
    Authentication type: none
    }

    If this is not what you're wanting, let me know and I'll try to find it. Keep in mind that this is on 8.1.
    Mine says the same thing and I'm on 8.1. How's your LTE connection and speed?

    So the RM-937 works on AT&T LTE. Does it have Qi Wireless Charging built-in?

    Well I got something weird after upgrading to 8.1. When I try to activate the front camera the phone crashes. ???? I'm not to concerned as I don't use the front camera but it is definitely a software thing. I might try to reload 8.1. Anybody else?

    No QI, that's why we all want the RM-938...

    You sure about that? I think it's the RM-940 (aka the AT&T version) that doesn't have Qi.

    FWIW I just contacted Newegg and they said they have no idea when they'll be getting in new shipments of the RM-938 in white and yellow, or if they even will at all. They just said their stock is updated in real time, so keep checking back.

    No, the 937 doesn't do ATT compatible LTE. The point I was trying to make is that it does do ATT compatible HSPA+, which practically speaking is almost as fast. Sadly, not so much on T-Mobile.

    Oh. Sorry about that. I guess for some reason I thought that the RM-937 was AT&Ts.

    RM-937: International
    RM-938: Unicorn, North America everything
    RM-940: Crippled ATT model

    If you don't know that off the top of your head, you clearly are living a more fulfilling life than I, so don't feel like you have to apologize.

    Yep. Has a micro-sd slot. I have a 64 GB card in mine. I've heard from others on this forum that it works with 128 GB cards too.

    It has everything good about the 1520... LTE bands for ATT and T-Mo, 32gb storage, build in Qi, microSD expansion, no branding (besides Nokia). But right now you can only get it in black, as both white and yellow are sold out on Negri and Newegg.

    Oh awesome! Thanks for posting. I checked earlier today and they were still sold out. I hope it's not just the returned units that they're reselling!

    Is it just me or does it seem like the Negri units have more frequent screen issues than the Newegg ones? Probably just a coincidence from some select feedback.

    Two hard resets later and the camera rear or front don't work. Also the top of the phone stays warm. I hope 8.1 doesn't void warranty.

    RM938 updated to 8.1, no problem getting ATT LTE and still has tethering.

    No problems getting LTE here. LTE even works on my train ride to and from Manhattan. I do find that when the phone drops to "H" or "H+" the speed is still very fast in my area, a lot of the time I get the same speed as LTE when I run a network speed test. (15-30 mbps download)

    Internet tethering is working on my 1520.3 since the 8.1 update without doing the keyboard hack. Even though I rarely use internet sharing, the fact that I couldn't was a minor downer for the otherwise fantastic 1520.3. Now, with all the 8.1 newness and with internet sharing working like normal, the 1520.3 is at least a +1520 greater than the AT&T version. Thanks to all the posters here who stared information about the 1520.3 and where to get it.
    Same here....after upgrading my White 1520.3 from NewEgg to WP 8.1 tethering is now working. Never had to use the "Spanish Keyboard Hack" either. Best $600.00 I ever spent.

    I haven't been paying attention too much, but I believe that I typically get 2 to 4 bars and somewhere around 12 to 15 down/3 up. This is my first LTE phone on T-Mobile, as we recently switched from att and it's a far cry from the 40 down that I saw there, but for a phone it's good enough. Plus it's much cheaper.

    Bad issue here. Camera won't even open. Newegg sent me to Nokia and Nokia tried to send me back to Newegg. So far not happy. I need this resolved. Back to the 920!!!

    What your settings for video recording? I had a similar issue with camera it would crash everytime I try to record video, changed settings to record video to phone instead of SD card I guess its too slow and I have no problems any more. Which app is crushing nokia cam or WP cam?
