    Yes, I have an 822 as well and I can select either LTE and CDMA, Global Mode, or GSM and LTE so I believe that is what he is referring to. The phone comes default in Global Mode. He did text me again today so it looks like texting is fine.
    Ok. Thanks. I'm assuming "GSM" is an on/off switch under the Cellular sub-settings screen. If you can confirm this, I might get an 822 off CL. There are few for $100 or so in the last few weeks. I just didn't want to buy them for the SMS sending issue.

    I use my 822 on AT&T when I am in a dead zone. It will automatically switch to GSM mode when it turns back on

    Can the 822 be used on the Sprint network?

    I just won one of these and I'm excited to see it's usable on AT&T!

    Perhaps I wasn't thorough with reading, but I'd be able to get data on AT&T with one of their SIMs?

    Really want to get the 822, but stuck on AT&T for another 7 months. I am using a Samsung Focus. Will I need to get AT&T to give me a microsim to use it on 822 or will it take full size sim card? Thanks

    Would I be able to have AT&T give me a new microsim and port my number? Only other option is to get the 820, but I like the 16 GB storage on the 822.

    Cut your SIM and use. or tell ATT to give you a micro sim. i did that with Tmobile thought it was for 710 i bought from Groupon. They changed it free of cost.

    But i cut my walmart family mobile SiM myself and use it in my 710.. It is easy

    I'm running an 822 on AT&T and its fine. My phone wasn't on Portico when I got it. I had to put the AT&T apn in for data to work. Everything works fine except internet sharing.

    Try installing the Nokia access point app to see if it helps with pan settings. I know this app also helps with enabling Internet sharing. Ymmv
    xirsteon is right, if you use Access Point, you will have access to your APN settings which should provide service including data, etc.

    Its more of WP8 checking to see if your data plan has mobile hot spot which mine doesn't. I think its a ludicrous extra that the carriers are trying to make you pay for.

    I'm sure if i had a tethering plan it would work fine.

    Yes..... and your APN settings depend on what GSM carrier you are using.....Your settings can be provided by your carrier or MVNO

    Okay I can't seem to get anything working beyond calling and text on my Lumia 822. I'm using a SIM from a friend's iPhone 4s on AT&T. It will display 3G/H (I don't think AT&T has 4G here yet because they recently took over Alltel's network) but I can never access the internet. I installed the Access Point app and tried all three that were available and nothing changed. I can try adding one based on these settings but they're a little confusing for me. I'm not sure exactly where each setting goes because it doesn't translate perfectly to this app. I think this might be where I first need help. Should EVERY Lumia 822 work on AT&T? Is there any reason a particular device wouldn't work? I figured they're ALL released from Verizon with the same unlocked configuration.

    Is there anything else I can do? I REALLY want to use this phone. I like it a lot better than the other Windows Phones with the sharp corners. The Samsung ATIV is currently too expensive. PLEASE HELP! :)

    Use the 3G access point. Your phone won't connect to the LTE ones until you call AT&T with the IMEI.

    If you want to add an APN all you need to put it in is wap.cingular you don't need a password.

    Yes it does all 822s are GSM unlocked. When I got mine I just put my AT&T SIM in and I could immediately make calls and get texts. I had to configure my APN to get data to work. I haven't gotten MMS to work but that doesn't really bug me.

    Sorry for Grave digging this thread.. I just need some help.

    Im planning to buy a Lumia 822 on ebay or Craigslist and i want to use a Tmobile sim or Lycamobile. i want to use for call and text only for now. but maybe later ill go with prepaid tmobile plan with data.

    Is there any version of software i need to look for?
    I read that call and text works right away, does the data works to this date?

    and tips before buying the lumia 822?

    THANKS!
