    I posted a link to the yellow one on another thread. That's probably the equivalent of the Lumia 925.2 that runs perfectly on T-Mobile US.

    Maybe no one has bought from them? Or no one trust it? Have you bought a phone from them?

    Well they do have a A+ rating with the BBB...

    I guess then it is just the $$ right now.... Oh well, maybe it will get more popular once the word spreads?

    Not Qi charging... Look at the back of the phone.. See the 3 dots on the bottom? PMA charging.... I have this phone...

    Negri is known, but is always over priced IMO. I'd wait to see if it starts popping up on ebay...

    Then I guess that would be another reason, if they want so much for a phone, they should show a picture of the actual phone. I must be missing something, because I don't see where it says Qi charging.

    A lot of people here have bought phones from them. The webstore is very well known around here and someone from Negri even has an account up here and has answered questions in a few threads. I got my 920 from them. They're very reputable.

    As for why this 1520.3 hasn't been discussed, it's probably because they've just been released and no one really knew about them yet. I can say that I wasn't aware of them until yesterday, when I was replying to someone's thread about using the 1520 on MetroPCS. I grabbed a link off of Negrielectronics.com and stumbled across the yellow 1520.3 and linked him to that.

    So basically an att model rm-940, but unlocked. Without dealing with att for unlocking or keeping a plan for 2 months until it can be unlocked. Not paying at least $110 per month for 2 months for a 4gb plan. If someone told me I can pay $100 extra to avoid all the hassle, i would have bought the phone in a heartbeat.

    Personally its a bigger deal that att locked out hspa aws on this phone so you have to rely on tmobile lte. Yes chicago has refarmed 4g 1900, but even at 5 bars, i get aroung 2-3 Mbps download and thats on a good day.

    I could not find where that page says it has Qi... But maybe I missed it?

    On the radio specs it only lists the 1700 MHz frequency, meaning that it won't work on t-mobile LTE. It needs to have both, 2100 and 1700, not just one or the other. But it will get you 4g (beefed up 3g) since it does have 1700 and 2100 there, and LTE on at&t seems to be there as well.

    Hey, this might or might not be the case, but sometimes manufacturers get lazy & it's assumed that the 1700 band will only work with the 2100 band, like it's common knowledge or something, or they don't bother listing it also. I have never actually seen a phone listed specifically only with the 1700 band without the 2100 band. & isn't GSMARENA say this phone comes with tmobile bands anyways ?

    T-Mobile's AWS band 4 is the most commonly misunderstood band. This is the reason why tech sites and everybody that sells phones should practice listing bands and not frequencies. The common frequency descriptor of the AWS band 4 is 1700, and we all know that download frequency for the AWS band is 2100 MHz and the upload frequency is 1700 MHz. The download frequency for AWS band 4 (2100 MHz) should not be confused with band 1 (2100) because they do not use the same UARFCN channel numbers. If somebody lists UMTS band 1700 that means that the download frequency 2100MHz must be present, because nobody designs half working band ... Nobody can utilize band without download channel. The same explanation is for LTE ... It would be less confusing if they do like HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1700_2100 / 1900 / 2100; LTE 700 / 850 / 1700_2100 / 1900 / 2600 ... But the real kicker is that for the other bands the download channels are not creating confusion, just this AWS band is causing brains to stop for a moment ...

    Thanks for this post, im inquiring about buying one right now.

    I'd be more than happy paying ~$50 over the ATT version and picking it up locally...the ebay postings for the rm-938 aren't a good choice for me since one was just "cancelled due to higher than expect demand, no stock available"

    Has anyone confirmed this by buying one and actually seeing that it gets AT&T LTE AND internet sharing?
    Is this the rm-938? Cant see that on the website.

    This appears to be an AT&T RM-940 that Negri has purchased and unlocked so that it works with SIMs from other carriers. This phone does not appear to be an RM-938, the version with US LTE frequencies, Qi, 32 GB, and a choice of colors.

    Thought so.....Still waiting and frustrated.

    Have you seen the other one from HongKong?

    Nokia Lumia 1520 32GB LTE (RM-938 - AT&T - No Contract)

    Do you think that is a 938?

    No wonder why you are lost ... You are looking at wrong bands, I'm afraid this phone doesn't like Country ... Rock and Roll is thing from the past ...
    Now it makes more sense why your phone doesn't work ... Maybe you can try to plug it into Yamaha receiver, it could help your reception ...
    By the way, i'm electrical engineer with background in RF, so i know my stuff ...

    Now, I use to ride a Yamaha 750cc Triple years ago. But since my field is accounting, I will leave the electronics to others. As far as music, I will listen to almost anything but gangsta rap. Even classical can be pretty cool during certain times.

    No, I don't think that the RM-938 has yet been manufactured. It's still the unicorn phone.
