    Nice... this phone has 3 different versions, I think the RM-893 is the one for T-Mobile

    Nokia Lumia 925 - Full phone specifications

    it should also be able to work on AT&T HSPA network, which is nice...

    I think the 925 was mainly developed for the US market/TMO

    Interesting, it also has support for LTE 700. Doesn't say which class though. According to that though, it says RM-893 has no support for AWS on HSPA, but RM-910 does?

    But then according to that, RM-910 has no LTE, but on T-Mobile's signup page it shows LTE. =/

    I think we need to wait for Nokia or T-Mobile to release more information.

    ^ ..I dunno.. this is a bit confusing to be honest. But I doubt that there is an extra model number that they haven't announced.. maybe the specs on gsmarena are off

    here is the spec page on Nokia Developer

    Device Details -- Nokia Lumia 925

    Hmm, I don't think T-Mobile would get it without LTE, that would be silly. But it would also be silly to omit AWS support for HSPA since their refarm isn't complete. Maybe T-Mobile will get another variant? Or maybe Nokia forgot something. There is this at the bottom...

    Specifications are subject to change without notice.


    If the RM-893 is an unlocked variant, I think I'd happily buy that if the price was right. I hate carrier branding, and whatever restrictions they put on the firmware like the inability to choose your highest data connection speed.

    Also, the Nokia site tells me that the 700 is Band 17. That's the one that AT&T uses. Interesting. An unlocked AT&T variant? Strange.

    I think the 893 is the T-Mobile version and the 910 might be the one for China.

    Doesn't China use TD-SCDMA or something?

    Me! Automatic no go now! Hopefully they'll sell a version at the Microsoft store without the branding and I'll get on that in a heartbeat!

    China Mobile uses TD-SCDMA; China Unicom uses UMTS W-CDMA; China Telecom uses CDMA2000 1x EV-DO.

    I does bother me, but at least it's not as horrendous as Verizon's branding on the 928.

    Nokia finally has the Lumia 925 on it's US site with the specs for the T-Mobile version.

    Nokia Lumia 925 - Specifications - Nokia - USA

    For WCDMA, it supports 850, 900, 1700-2100, 1900 and 2100. So it's pentaband.
    For LTE, it supports 700 (Band17), 850, 1700-2100, 1900. So technically it supports LTE on all carriers to some extent. AT&T uses 700 Band 17 for it's LTE, along with some AWS (1700-2100) that they have leftover. Verizon uses 700 Band 13, but I believe Verizon will be using AWS for LTE soon. Sprint I think is deploying their LTE on their PCS (1900) spectrum. And of course, T-Mobile's LTE network uses AWS. Why it supports all these other frequencies, I'm not sure. I know Verizon and Sprint won't activate devices not sold by them, but maybe we can see roaming agreements for LTE someday?

    Nice phone, too bad they cheaper out on int storage. Wouldn't buy a new smartphone unless it has a minimum of 32gb of int storage, anything less makes it a dumb phone.

    Nope. I hardly notice it on my Nokia 710 where it's at the same place.

    when did carrier branding start to offend so many people? i have never seen it as a big deal at all, but is this due to the iphone not having carrier branding and now everyone wants that too?

    on the 925, i am still deciding between it and the 928. I have played around with the 928and really like it but Verizon is expensive! Once the 925 comes out and i can make a comparison, i would like to stay on tmobile but also ready to go verizon if the 925isnt as good.

    It's ugly, and it's free advertising. That is annoying, considering I'm that one that'll be paying $500+ for the phone.

    I never really liked it, but in the past the unbranded versions either supported mostly European bands or were much more expensive than the carrier branded version here. That still sort of is true today, especially with Nokia's many carrier exclusives. I'm hoping Nokia does offer an unbranded US version (RM-893 on their developer page). I'd happily buy that if it wasn't too expensive even though it's missing AWS support for WCDMA and despite the fact that the T-Mobile version supports more LTE bands.

    I've also always hated the customer carrier firmware. They used to always have a stupid animation during boot up WITH SOUND. Absolutely annoying if you're someplace quiet and needed to turn your phone back on or reboot it--you couldn't without bothering everyone else. Thankfully, most phones I've used recently don't do that anymore.

    Not to mention other problems like carrier bloatware and disabled features.

    Talked to a T-mobile rep today. They said they heard about a Nokia phone coming in next week. He said it probably wasn't the 925, but I don't know another phone it could be. Is it reasonable for carriers to get training devices that far in advance of the launch?
