    I can only comment on the first two:

    If the phone is unlocked, it will work with T-Mobile.

    AT&T versions do work with T-Mobile bands of 4G. However, you won't be able to use T-Mobiles WiFi calling features.

    I don't know how well a transition from iTunes will go, but if you simply copy the music files over it should be fine.

    Groove subscription not necessary.

    A year ago, I switched from iOS to an 830. Very happy with the new OS and the phone. For my music, I just went into the music file folder for iTunes and copy and pasted into the WP music folder. There may have been some mild tinkering, but nothing major.
    I've considered upgrading early to a 950/xl, but the look, feel, and smoothness of the 830 keeps me from jumping into the (so far) less refined experience of a 950 running W10 (based on the reported issues of early adopters).
    Enjoy your 830.

    Being relatively new to WP, I can't comment much on other models. I briefly picked up a used 1520 as I wanted the large screen size to do double duty as phone and tablet. I enjoyed it very much until the screen cracked and I decided to sell rather than repair. (Note to self: large screen phones may not appreciate the g-forces of The Scream Machine). While I liked the 1520, it is a very different form factor and may not be for everyone.

    Personally, I think you'll be quite happy with the L830. Looks great. Dedicated camera button is very nice. My only real complaint about that model in particular was that the Netflix app didn't work for most of the time I've owned it. That has finally been straightened out.

    I'd say, use it, enjoy it, and wait to see of the "Surface Phone" unicorn makes an appearance some day.

    The 930 is an option.
    Potentially the Acer Jade Primo when it ships 2016 I believe.

    I never install a backup, always a fresh install, but that's just me. I don't notice any heat even on the fast ring. Multi Windows? Do you mean the task manager? Press and hold down the back button.

    yes. I think the heat was from charging when I taken it off it didn't seems as hot the battery was low 37% so it needs to charged.

    I just switched over to an unlocked AT&T 830 a week and a half ago. I get LTE in most big cities. Once you get into smaller towns, it is a different story and you might end up with edge where a tmobile band phone would have 4g.

    Where I am at the moment there is no Tmobile coverage but it roams to AT&T towers...but even my unlimited plan is restricted to 50mb of data.

    More information...turning on the 1700 band on my wife's 1520 gets her 4G in areas my 830 is demoted to edge so that is probably where you will lack coverage.
