    I'm contemplating getting a Lumia 1520 for use on T-mobile, but I'm having trouble actually finding one anywhere, I see a lot of the RM-937, but I've read a lot about needing the RM-938 for full use on T-mobile, I'm in the US and would rather not send money overseas to a small unknown site, so if someone can point me in the right direction it would be awesome!

    Thanks

    bhphotovideo.com and expansys-usa.com are both good sites and usually have them in stock.

    I just purchased the black on from B&H today. It was the only color in stock. If you click on the tab to show what carriers it will work with; that should answer your question. Can't wait to get mine. Due on Thursday, Oct. 30.

    I did not buy the extended warranty at purchase. If you buy, let us know if you bought the warranty. I may do so anyway since it does not have any USA warranty at all.

    Using it on Tmo no problem. LTE, tethering both working.

    hmm.. I was originally holding out for the htc one m8 to release for Tmobile, but the more I think about it.. the more appealing a non carrier variant phone looks, I may ed up getting it..

    for those who use that site often, is that the normal price or a promotional price?

    That's a great price. I paid $650 for the same phone and couldn't be happier.

    Another vote for B&H. I'm using a 938 on T-Mobile with no problems.

    Just know that because they observe the Sabbath you won't be able to order from them Friday afternoon until Saturday evening.

    They observe all of the Jewish laws and holidays so are closed even for online ordering from Friday sundown to Saturday evening.

    Same! Though dont expect much from that memory card, its only a class 4.. so good chance of it having issues with out phones lol, I'll probably just give it away to someone else i know :P

    So I bought it! Thanks a lot for all your help guys!

    Just ordered the Black Lumia 1520.3 RM-938 from B&H. They said that the other colors were on back order, and no idea if more were coming. Tough decision is whether to keep or sell my 925 and my two new 920 phones! Thanks guys!

    I'm either gonna keepy my 925 and use it as a disposable phone, or buy a 521 and use it as a disposable phone

    I ordered the black too, which works out for me as its the color I'd prefer (it was a tough choice between black or white though, but I feel like the matte black just looks to sexy on the 1520

    I'm gonna have to get me a wireless charging kit, it seemed cool, but needing a case for my 925 killed any chance of me using it! and on that topic, I'm curious, does wireless charging work if you have a thick case on the phone?

    Search Amazon for "Amzer Pudding Soft Gel TPU Skin Fit Case Cover for Nokia Lumia 1520 - Retail Packaging - Black". I ordered that one and will be carrying it in a holster. Reviews on Amazon says wireless charging works fine through this case. You can buy the Nokia DT-900 Wireless Charging Pad at Ebay for less than $20.

    I haven't decided if I'm gonna case it or not, the phone is already huge enough without one, it also looks really nice visually (cant say it looks as sexy as my 925 naked though) whats everyones thoughts on casing the 1520? particularly those who already own it?

    Bought a clear case for my 925. Used it twice. Bought a slim case for my 1520.3. Used it once. Never used a case for other phones. I think whether a case is a good idea or not depends on where and how the phone is used and even how clumsy someone is. I don't use a phone for hours a day or while skateboarding, so no case for me.

    well, I baby my phones, my 925 is still in mint condition (though it does have a skinomi screen protector on it) I'll probably skip the case

    I have case just because the phone gets really hot while browsing or watching videos or playing games other wise I wouldn't need a case for my 925

    The phone can be slippery so I use the Amzer Pudding case, really doesn't add any bulk, gives a bit more grip and you have a bit of protection from light drops.

    I got mine on B&H and it was a good deal. I can confirm it was the 1520.3. The downside is that initially its in spanish or something, but its fairly easy to switch it to english. Its either the 2nd or 3rd screen after powering it up for the first time.
