    If you bought the RM-938 version, it should have 32GB in built



    This version (rm-938) is for Latin America. Seems this is why availability is limited.

    Thanks for confirming which region it's intended for. With that said, has it not actually been released in Latin America and these are just devices that some folks have managed to get early? If so, when is the actual planned release in LA? Maybe we'll see them become more widely available then?

    guys I wanted to know what data speed I can expect if I buy RM-937 version. I will be using T-Mobile (I stay in refarmed area).
    I think $625 too expensive for RM-638 when I can get RM-637 at $515. I do know I wont be getting LTE speed but would like to know the difference between speeds using 937 and 938 models.
    my tests of a 937 on ATT show about 6 Mbps +/- 0.7 mbps.

    I'm justifying. Just to sum up new egg RM 938 is 32g with wireless charging. Warranty might be an issue. Is this about right.

    It has been released in Latin America - they're selling them down here where I am living in Chile, and the ads are in lots of newspapers.

    Just as an explicit verification: Today, I was driving through a T-Mobile cell that hadn't been reformed. My ATT 1520/RM-940 said "E" for Edge; my Newegg 1520.3/RM-938 said "H+," presumably for HSPA+. So, yes, definitely fully T-Mobile band compatible.

    Thanks...if same speed is available for T mobile in refarmed area, then I will mostly be buying 937 model...I have 1GB limit for high speed data service and currently, my max usage on data services is 250MB (mostly use WiFi)

    Hopefully someone here would answer this: I am waiting for the elusive 1520 to arrive. I also ordered this Nilkin Case. If i put this case on the 1520, will Qi charging work with the Nokia Qi Wireless charging plate?

    That looks to be the same thickness my case is and it works fine, I also have my charger plate under my table so it is also working through that.

    So I broke down and bought a White RM-938 from Newegg.com to use on T-mobile. It should arrive by Thursday. I almost got the Yellow version, but I went and ordered the Yellow Nokia flip case instead from Amazon. Can't wait to try this phone out and get the tethering working. Does anyone know if T-mobile ever does come out with an official version of the 1520 on their network, would I be able to somehow flash the firmware on the phone with T-mobile's version of the firmware?? That is assuming they're both rm-938 models. Then Wi-Fi calling would probably work on this phone.

    With these fuzzy specs from the NewEgg site, has anybody confirmed this 1520.3 supports LTE on AT&T?
    I got mine yesterday and I can confirm it works very well with LTE on ATT.

    got mine today, works perfectly, had to use the Spanish keyboard trick to get internet sharing to work though. On Att LTE as I type this. 32 GB, Qi charging and all.

    I got it! I'm never going back! I can't! My typing speed has increased exponentially! Whoa! And the screen! I just need a micro SD card that can capture video without stuttering and I'm good for at least the rest of the year! I'm so excited! I got the black 1520.3, black Nokia flip case, I'm leaning towards the 64 GB extreme plus card since that's the one I literally haven't seen anyone say stutters when saving video. I did a network speed test and saw 20+ down and 11 up! #UnicornsAreReal

    Update: Any Americans leaning on the fence, just get it! There's nothing else coming from "Nokia". The 930 will not launch in the country, the ICON is extremely limited outside of Verizon(not to mention, no glance because of a hardware flaw, and no micro SD support) and the 635 has the same amount of ram as the HD2. This is it! Microsoft probably won't launch a phone until the holiday season at the earliest. Invest in this beast! I can literally take this phone anywhere in the world, Its not tied to any company, #JustDoIt

    Don't mind me, I'm just being a #BadInfluence, this "Bad" purchase feels sooo good, #NoRegrets

    Hello everyone.
    I just got my Lumia 1520 RM938 from NewEgg.
    I had ordered mine last Friday Morning & received it last night. I'm soooo happy to see 4G LTE on T-Mobile. I'm going to work in an hour so no time to "fix" the tethering problem.
    Anyone waiting on the fence, it's the real deal. Now I'm posting my 1520 RM937 up for sale on Ebay.
    Yeah Baby.

    Yeah Baby.
    Could you please confirm a couple of things here?

    1. On Newegg site it is called Lumia 1520.3. You call it rm-938. Is it the same thing?
    2. Everyone here is talking about 32GB internal memory, however Newegg states it is 16GB. So which one is correct? Is it an error on their page?
    3. Among the specs, listed at Newegg, I could not find any reference to wireless charging. Could you please confirm?
    4. Warranty. So this phone is from outside the US, which means there is no warranty (except for 30 day Newegg warranty). Is this correct?
    5. Newegg states it will have only 2G with T-Mobile. Is this another error?
    6. Did you figure the tethering fix? Does it work now?

    Thank you and other people in advance for response.

    5. Newegg states it will have only 2G with T-Mobile. Is this another error? Yes, Newegg specs are wrong. This RM-838 is a latin america version which has 2G/3G/4G/LTE for both ATT and TMO.
    6. Did you figure the tethering fix? Does it work now? It works by doing the spanish KB trick. - http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...tm#post2433384

    Well, thank you much! It sounds great now. The final (and probably the biggest) question:

    Is 1520 not too large? I understand different people will have different opinion, but what is the consensus?

    Hope someone at Nokia sees this thread and realizes that there is a market for unlocked off-contract devices with LTE bands of all the carriers (gsm ones anyway) with all the envisioned features of the device intact (I'm looking at you ATT).

    This is with the hope of them making future devices like the Lumia 930 available with all the LTE bands and can be bought unlocked off-contract. If Nokia themselves release off-contract devices in the USA (through the MS store perhaps?), the limited supply and warranty problems would be taken care of.

    Is 1520 not too large? I understand different people will have different opinion, but what is the consensus?
    It is and it is not. From what I have seen here at WPC, the feeling of "it's too large"goes away after a week of using it and then 1520 owners can't seem to go back to a smaller phone! Of course, it's all a matter of personal preference and I highly recommend you to get a feel of one in your hand by going down to the nearest ATT/MSFT store.
