    When they first went up on Newegg, thought for a minute to wait for the yellow model ('cause it was already sold out by the time I got there). I decided, naw, and impulsively bought the black one. Which was I think the only one they had in stock at the time.

    Boy am I ever glad I did. I can't even find them listed on Newegg now, and Negri still shows them perpetually backordered. Does anyone have them for sale anywhere anymore?

    You'd think that someone (Nokia/Microsquish) would cotton to the fact that they're selling out immediately wherever/whenever they go on sale, and I don't know, respond to the demand and try to make a few more bucks.

    The Canadian site OmegaCell had them last week but they didn't last long.

    Nope: Elop the Preventer of Sales is still on the job.

    Sent their CS an email about availability, said they expect them in 1st week of June, hopefully true.

    Funny, I had completely dismissed this phone because of the size but something about the SP3 inspired me to rethink it and I gave it a good hands on at the MS store when placing my preorder. Now I've spent hours watching video reviews and can't wait to get it. Thank goodness for unicorns! :)

    Yea, I'm rather heavily invested in the "Googlesphere" as well but I think I'll manage. :-) I read about apps that allow you to access Google Music, and you can integrate GMail. A friend with the Icon says he loves the Maps app.

    I'm just looking forward to playing!

    Yea, I am on the Google koolaid also, but honestly, its not all that. Especially having to deal with the crappy software releases that have to be "qualified" by AT&T. I've tried custom ROMs and have a custom ROM on my phone now, but, these seem "buggy" to me and development pretty much stops on them not soon after they release v2 of the phone.

    I know Microsoft hasn't been stellar in this regard, but, at least with an unlocked phone I am not bending over for AT&T anymore.

    So I listed my 1520.3 on eBay for $900 (just for the hell of it) and it sold this past Monday. Not bad for a "used" phone, right? I will definitely be getting another one, but figured I could let go of it for a month or 2 for a $300 profit. I feel like I've sold a piece of my soul. :/

    I'm going to miss the total Google integration but the good things I've been hearing about maps on the 1520 is a plus. I can use Tango in place of Hangouts since not many people I know use Skype and as you mentioned there is a workaround for others. I'm worried about travel apps like TripAdvisor since the Windows phone version is bad. I use their offline city guide a lot when I travel.

    That's a smart way to do it. Sound like you may have traded stocks before.

    Looks like its back in stock at Omegacell for $775, hopefully should mean B&H will get their stock as scheduled.

    That works out to $750ish in US dollars when you include $40 shipping.

    If it's the RM-937, it will only get HSPA+, but if it's the RM-938, it will get all T-Mobile's HSPA+ and LTE bands perfectly no matter which version of the WP OS it's running.

    That's the million dollar question. Newegg, Negri, and B&H had them, but have since changed their status to either backordered or discontinued. If I'm not mistaken, Negri and B&H are allowing you to place orders that they will ship when available (at least for certain colors). It's extremely rare and hard to find right now. I sold my used RM-938 on eBay for $900 last week. Your best bet is to keep an eye on this forum. I'm sure once somebody gets them back in stock it'll be posted here.

    B&H is indicating they will have them soon--quite possibly this week. OmegaCell (in Canada) says on their website that they will have them this week. They are expensive (775 Canadian) but it's a good sign the the supply pipeline may well be flowing soon.

    I changed my method of payment on my B&H order and the status went from "on order" to "new order processing". I fired off a panic email but I was assured my place in the queue was not changed. **whew!**

    Incorrect. I got my RM-938 straight from B&H. That link shows the RM-938.

    Check out the specs. It says it supports LTE Band 4. That is what T-Mobile uses. The RM-937 doesn't. 938 does.
