    It sounds repetitive but if tell my family in Canada to get Roger's Nokia Lumia 920 and send it to me and then put TMobile SIM in it, will it work?
    I have checked the bands on rogers site and it looks like it would work but not sure if I will get the same thing if I go to the Rogers store or not?
    The other day I was chatting with a Rogers Rep online and she said she has no clue of this bands :)

    It will work, however, you will have to get buy it off-contract and then pay Rogers $50 to unlock the phone first.

    It would work, but you would need to purchase and enter in the unlock code before.

    I now have the developer version of the phone on T-Mobile in the Baltimore, MD area. After getting a micro-sim the phone network came up right away. Data wasn't working, but all the setting pages automatically recognized T-Mobile. After about 5-10 minutes the "H' HSPDA network lit up and I was online. I actually still have the old T-Zones, not one of the current plans, but it still worked and I didn't have to manually enter any settings. I'm getting about 8 Mb/s down and 1 Mb/s up. I'm not sure if the old plan is slowing things down or not, but it seems like similar numbers to others on this forum, and it's faster than my N8 was getting by quite a bit.

    I have posted on a few other threads on WP Central about T-Mobile.

    Here is my experience so far with my 920 dev unit on T-Mobile:

    • I have the developers unit. Luckily I had a $800 phone allowance from work so technically it only cost me $100. I need an unlocked phone as I travel overseas a lot and I am tired of carrying two phones.
    • I am not in an upgraded area for the 42-Mbps HSPA+ but I do average about 10-12 Mbps (sometimes 14) down and about 2-4 Mbps up
    • Setting up the access point was difficult at first as the T-Mobile store rep was a little technical but because the device was so new, he really couldnt help that much. I ended up doing some trial and error and found that the preloaded T-Mobile access point works (with MMS) IF you set the speeds in the cellular settings to 3G.
    • T-Mobile just recently sent an update pertaining to access points which I think is because the Nokia 810 was just released. Now I am using an access point called T-Mobile ipv6 (does not seem like anything has changed BUT when I called T-Mobile and questioned this, they said it is for the January roll out of the 42-Mbps HSPA+ service in the San Diego area.) and I have since switched my speed setting to 4G in the cellular setting. In the top left hand bar, it only shows an H as it always has (H is short for HSDPA).


    So far everything is good. I do drop calls every so often inside my office which I never did on sprint (coming over from an HTC EVO 3D on Sprint). I chalk that up to the location of my office as I have yet to drop a call while driving on T-Mobile. I have 3 more weeks to determine if I am going to stay with T-Mobile. The everything plan is definitely worth it as I am only paying $60 a month.

    Buy a roger or go with the dev version which right now is freaking expensive on Ebay. Roger, on the other hand, is less expensive.
    did the dev phone route since I am a WP & Win8 dev. It was freekin' expensive but less so than a trip to Build, it's working great on T-MoUSA!

    Thanks for this tip about 3G. Hopefully it will do LTE when tmo is ready for that.

    I unlocked my Rogers Lumia 920 (for $50 bucks) via rogers customer support as I wanted to use the phone on the Telus Network.
    I inserted my new Telus micro sim, powered the phone, entered the unlock code, and I was logging!
    The first thing I wanted to do was make my first official phone call (to my wife) then de-virginize my phone by running my first Telus LTE speedtest.
    To my surprise...Voice/text worked, but data was failing. Error: 'Network functions are not enabled on this cellular network" - or something.
    To fix....all I did was change the APN and MMS apn settings like so:
    *** Cellular Settings ***
    Data Connection: on
    Data Roaming Options: don't roam
    Highest Connection Speed:LTE
    Network Selection: TELUS

    ***Internet apn settings ***
    APN: ips.telus.net
    User name: -
    Password: -
    Proxy server (URL): 74.49.0.18
    Proxy Port: 80
    IP Type: IPv4

    *** MMS apn Settings ***
    APN: ips.telus.net
    User name: -
    Password: -
    WAP Gateway: -
    WAP Gateway port: -
    MMSC (URL): http://aliasredirect.net/proxy/mmsc
    MMSC Port: 80
    Maximum MMS Size: 80
    IP Type: IPv4

    That said, my data now works on the Telus network and myspeed test resulted in 3.2Mbps Download and 2.6Mbps Upload. I know this can be improved so perhaps someone may know if there is limitation with Ipv4 vs. Ipv6/v4 or something else that is restricting speeds. I live in Vancouver BC and I have had this phone since November 14th.. it set me back 549.00+10.00+50.00+Tax, but since this is an Early xmas gift to my self so it was completely worth it!.

    I preordered the Grey Lumia 920 from gsmnation.com. They tell me they'll have stock late this week or early next week with the 1700 band intact. I'm going to try it with my TMobile SIM. Hopefully all goes well.
    Any updates of that?? Especially on the 1700 support?

    Ihave a developers phone on t mobile and just got an updTe to the access point settings . Before I had the option of t mobile or another apn setting. Now the options are t mobile apn or t mobile ipv6. Whats t mobile ipv6? Which one should I use? I have experimented with both and its been tough to tell the difference. Any help or advice would be great.

    ETA has now been pushed to 2 weeks when I was expecting it to ship my Wednesday (tomorrow). That's for the colors, but they do have black in stock. They are still telling me the 1700 band is intact and the phone will work on TMobile.

    The rep said the data wasn't working yet because the account was just created, but I don't think that's the case.

    Here is a screenshot of my cellular section.

    Wait a second... You can change "highest connection speed"? Is this only with Unlocked phones, or can it be done with a locked ATT one too?

    I just got my hands on a Lumia 920 developer build.

    The phone idles at "3G". Once there's data, it jumps to "H+". I see this when using IE.
    Phone settings: Highest connection speed = 4G, Network selection = automatic, Access point = T-Mobile (active, default, no manual APN added).
    MMS (for pictures, at least) works fine with default settings above.

    Everything is working fine so far except for tethering. I downloaded and installed the Spanish keyboard. That restarted the phone and installed some updates. I can turn on "internet sharing" and my clients can connect to it just fine.

    There is a big problem: The client's (another phone) browser is redirecting all Internet traffic to offers.t-mobile.com, which is asking me to buy the $14.99/month Smartphone Mobile Hotspot. It's rather ridiculous and costs almost as much as my "unlimited" 2GB for $20. My old Lumia 710 internet sharing works fine, and it's always "4G". All of my clients (phone and laptop) can connect to it and use the Internet with the 710.

    How can I get Internet Sharing to NOT redirect to the tmobile website? I'm thinking Tmobile is doing this because the 920 can actually connect to HSDPA 42Mbps whereas the 710 is limited to HSDPA 14.4Mbps. This is just a guess.

    Summary on Tmobile USA:

    Lumia 710
    - always 4G
    - any phone or laptop can use the Internet Sharing feature

    Lumia 920 dev build
    - idle on 3G, goes to H+ when data is used
    - Internet Sharing can be turned on, but it redirects all client from phones to add hotspot option
    - for laptop tethering (non-phone devices), I just get a "Limited" connection error. There's no Internet.

    Believe it or not, I got mine from Craigslist for $550. It was a pretty great price for dev version. Apparently, the guy uses Verizon, so the 920 was not very useful for him. It's fully functional, and it's running on Tmobile right now. I just need to get tethering to work.

    Thanks to Kouki and all of the early 920 Dev model users on T-Mobile. I am now the proud owner of a 920 Dev model working great on T-Mobile. I know that Kouki had posted once that visual voicemail was working. Has anyone else had success with this on T-Mobile? Everytime I try to turn it on, it says it won't work. That and tethering are my only issues but I am going to try to download the Spanish keyboard now. Thanks for the help.

    For my dev unit the only thing that needed tweaking was highest connection speed, also couldn't tell the difference with that and ipV6 except some connections didn't work. (guess ipv4 only sites and services were to blame)

    visual voicemail was working right away (had it on my HD7 & Lumia 710 but don't actually use it since I have Google voice) internet sharing wasn't tried before downloading and uninstalling the Korean quick keyboard

    Anyone had luck in making this 920 work on T-mobile using a AT&T 920 Phone?
    Not Dev or Rogers Phones but AT&T Phones....
    Heck I can even find a site which will unlock the AT&T Phone.

    AT&T will be voice and EDGE (2G) speed only. I would try, but my current TMo Venue Pro is a normal SIM, not micro.
