    Hey guys, I am locked in at T-Mobile, but I love the Lumia 900 and I plan on buying my next phone off-contract anyway, so I was curious about this. I have seen some speculation, but no one seems to know for sure and I know nothing about bands and radio and all the different factors that impact reception. I am told that AT&T will unlock phones, is this an exception?

    I love the Lumia 800 too, but it is also AT&T and I don't want to be stuck on EDGE for obvious reasons :). I have also used the Lumia 710 (my mom has it) and while it is nice, I prefer a more high end device.

    There is no support for 1700MHz in the Lumia 900, so the radio will fallback to GSM/EDGE connectivity if you try to use it on magenta.

    Everybody keeps saying that 900 will only run on 2G with Tmobile but FCC documents showed that they actually had a 1700 AWS WCDMA band. So it should get 3G on tmobile but nobody will know until the device comes out

    Link from xda forum with docs Nokia Lumia 900 may not support T-Mobile 3G after all. - Page 4 - xda-developers

    This is a good thread to look at if you're curious about using a 900 on TMO. Looks like an unlocked Rogers could work 3g/4g on TMO but only EDGE with an ATT phone. Situation still not entirely clear. Lumia 900 and T Mobile - xda-developers
