    The Lumia 830 can't come soon enough. It is so disappointing to hear the Att is the only carrier that has announced this great device in the US. What I don't get, is that ATT said they would sell it in time for the holidays. At the official announcement for the Lumia 830, they said the phone would start shipping or become available by the end of this month (September). Am I wrong for thinking that the phone then is still going to be announced by other US carriers? I really wasn't this phone on T-Mobile. Is anyone else thinking that it is odd that ATT announced they would carry it 2 months from now, and that neither T-Mobile nor Verizon is silent? And Sprint....well, there really isn't any Windows Phone support over there.

    They have stated that seven devices will be available by the end of 2014 that support their newly acquired spectrum (700 mHz), and the names of four of those devices are known. That means that there are at least three new devices coming to T-Mobile this year that aren't announced, and it is likely one of them could be a windows phone (either a 735 or 830 or both).

    The announcement was for the global audiences that was made in the IFA in Germany. In the U.S.; it is still unknown when it will be released. It will come to India in October 7th however. U.S. on the new Lumia is still a mystery! Color choices and if any of the features will be modified to fit the needs of the U.S. carriers that will be stocking it. I hate that the U.S. carriers want to keep the storage at the minimum and take some of the other features out of the global versions. I just hope they do not change the physical size of the unit so that accessories will not be available from the standard global version.

    There's still time for an announcement but I'd temper expectations. It's been a disappointing season overall for Windows Phone thus far but as long as we at least end up with an AWS-compatible version of the 830 in whatever color we choose (silver metal band or black like what AT&T is carrying), I'll be content.

    It would be ever so annoying if they got rid of the wireless charging, or some other feature, as they have done in the past. I signed up on the Nokia website to be notified for when the 830 is to be available, and still haven't been notified about it, even though ATT has already made a press release stating that they will carry the phone. This gives me a shade of hope for T-Mobile, as well as the information above that T-Mobile has yet to release 3 more devices on the acquired spectrum by the end of the year. I want this phone so bad. I could care less about the Selfie phone. I got rid of my 920 for an iPhone, but after Apple's last keynote, I was just so disappointed. I started with the first iPhone and had one till the iPhone 4. Then I switched to Windows Phone HTC Radar, and fell in love. Then jumped around carriers chasing phones, like the Lumia 710, then the 920 on ATT. (Which was my favorite), then the 925 on T-Mobile, and now I want that slick and beautiful design of the 830.

    News this morning that Vietnam is getting the 830! Too far for me. I'm still holding out. :)

    I am on the same boat here with you. I really want it to be available for T-mobile because I have Metro PCS and I could use it unlocked. I think Southern California is already part of the reframed area that doesn't need the 1700 aws band right? because on the L830 page it does not list that band. Anyways I have fallen in love with it and would honestly buy it for whatever price it does come out with. Still have my fingers crossed. Coming from the NL521 and a Moto G.

    I hope they announce something today, like they did this morning with pre orders for the UK. I literally search all over the net for more information and hands on videos and images of this device almost daily. I just can't wait to get my hands on it! I've been promoting this phone over the new iPhone to everyone, yet I can't even say when it is going to be available, other than next month.

    huh, what? The band color will be different on AT&T? What source did you get that from?

    There are two different colors of the metal chassis anyway, it's not exclusive to AT&T and there's been no official word on this yet. However, AT&T's press shot shows the phone only in the darker metal chassis. It's worth noting that they only carried the darker metal variant with the Lumia 925 as well, so there's also a precedent for it.

    I hope they announce something soon. I had to replace my phone awhile back so I'm stuck with a 635. It's ok but I'd like something better, especially when it comes to the camera.

    I may have to take a break from the platform and come back once new devices hit next year. I hate that thought.

    I just saw it in a video in another thread as well and came back to edit my post. Not sure how I feel about it yet...it does look good with the standard black...

    I've tweeted T-Mobile, posted on their Facebook, called them, talked to them in their store. Either no one knows anything about anything coming down the pipes or they have a policy of not releasing information. It's really tiresome.

    I even spoke to four different locations today about when they had shipments of new iPhones coming in (in case I go that route) and it was a big shrug from everyone I talked to.

    I've learned that the tmobile staff is completely oblivious to everything, in my experience. I went into a shop on Thursday and was asking about wifi calling and they thought that the only way for an iPhone owner to get wifi calling was to purchase an iPhone 6, not just upgrade to iOS 8. I didn't even dare mention anything about the Lumia 830. They probably would have told me that the EOL 925 was better anyways.

    There has to be some way to squeeze information out of the company. Maybe I'm better off going to another carrier at this point. This is starting to feel silly.

    I wasn't sure how I felt about it either, then the more photos I saw, videos I watched, and the more I just generally thought about it, I realized my initial instinct was how I still felt... I'll like it much more with the regular metal band. For that reason, I'd rather import an international variant sans LTE than go with AT&T's version since a big reason I'm getting the phone anyway is aesthetics.

    If it's any consolation, I don't think the metal frame will be black persay (a la the black 930, on which scratches tend to show). It's more of a dark grey, which looks better than the black IMO.

    Tell me about it. Some people switched back covers on their black Lumia Icon and my first thought was "is this for Halloween?" Definitely nicer with the regular silver chassis.

    Hopefully T-Mobile gets the lighter color like they did with the 925.

    I hope your right, I asked a T-mobile staff about the lumia 830 and he told me they wouldn't be getting it, hopefully your right and they know nothing, but I suppose its possible they wont be getting it..

    I'm sick of waiting. Not thrilled with my 635. I miss my old 925 but when it broke I had no choice but to get this low end phone. I know TMOBILE is getting the HTC M8 soon and I might have to pull the trigger on it if there is no word from Microsoft about the 830 by then. I'm not really interested in the 735.

    Depending on the bands it comes with it may not be a bad idea to get the ATT 830 and get it unlocked via third party and enjoy it on TMO. If there is the death star logo on the back, eBay is your friend with a fresh new back cover from China:-)

    If they don't move on the 830, then the M8 will be my first of 2 jump upgrades. Then I will wait for the next lumia. I want that 830 though!

    Me too, based on my requirements, the 830 is actually the perfect device for me.

    There is hope! Although personally, if I was in the market for a new phone, I'd wait for a Latin America unlocked Country Varian version ala-1520.3

    Wonderful news!

    Edit: According to the article, the RM 935 might be that Latin American variant you're referring to.
