    The Lumia 1520.3 at B&H Photo is $490, has 32GB, Qi charging, and a U.S. warranty. However, repairs will be via a mail-in since you can't stop by an AT&T store. The B&H purchase will likely be sales tax free, so that might save another $30-40 on the cost when purchased from AT&T.
    The US warranty part is absolutely wrong. See this return letter from Nokia when I asked for warranty service on my 1520.3.

    In the end, I was able to negotiate with Nokia, claiming that it was wrong for the site to proclaim "in warranty in the US" on their warranty checker page putting in my phone serial (I'm not concerned about exposing the serial in that pdf, I don't have the phone anymore), so they decided they would be able to make an exception and trade me for an AT&T 32GB edition of the phone. In some ways a downgrade (wireless charging), and in others, it just plain works (internet sharing) without any tinkering around with Spanish Spain keyboards (which seems to be patched in WP 8.1) which is a relief. I've also experienced the oddities of flashing the French CV firmware to my Lumia 920, so I'm really starting to appreciate the "just works" firmware on AT&T devices.

    I hope this helps you decide. There was a time on AT&T's website that you could choose 32GB but only if you picked black. That option seems to be gone now. I'm OK with black (was a yellow 1520.3), but you may really enjoy the color options.

    This is great to know the proper warranty information. I, too, made my 1520.3 purchase decision in part on the word of others who checked the Nokia warranty site and mistakenly thought that the device would be covered in the States. Thanks for posting the correction!
