    If I get an unlocked 925, can I just switch out my sim in my 521 to the 925. Will that work?

    I too am interested in doing this. I'm new to Windows Phone & T-Mobile since I recently just got a 521.

    Yes. That's the beauty of GSM.

    Yes. That's what I did. I had a 521 on the $30 5GB plan, bought a 925 with a new plan for my wife. Swapped the cards and everything was set.

    How much better is the 925 than the 521? In your opinion

    It opens apps a bit faster, camera is 10x better, and the screen blows the 521 out of the water.

    Yes of course. With a GSM phone so long as the SIM card is the correct size (ie: MircoSIM) you can switch between any phone, regardless of operating system.

    Really? WiFi calling wouldn't work for me at first, but it was because my account didn't have a 911 emergency address. Once I added one to my account Wifi calling works. LTE has worked on my prepaid SIM card since I got it in May.

    ???? I just unlocked my 925 today (had to pay it off and had my account for over 60 days) and I have been using the same MicroSim that I used on my L920 I brought over from AT&T, then on a Z10 I had for a month and Galaxy S4 (had for 3 weeks) and had no problems accessing all the features including WiFi calling on the S4 and 925.

    A lot better. As others have pointed out, it has a faster processor, double the memory, a larger screen with greater pixel density, and has a better camera in back. Beyond that, it has multiple features the 521 doesn't have, such as LTE, HSPA+ 42, a front camera (so you can video chat), Gorilla Glass 2, image stabilization and a flash on the camera, a gyro, a compass, and an FM radio.

    The only think I can think of the 925 doesn't have that the 521 does is the microSD card slot.

    OP, do you mean an unlocked 925 from overseas? If so then you won't get WiFi Calling or LTE on T-Mobile.

    You should be able to. You'll have to pay for the phone outright when you end your T-Mobile service (if you haven't paid for it already). The radios are the same, so you should be good to go with AT&T after an unlock. You won't have WiFi calling, though, as that is linked to T-Mobile.

    1700/2100 not supportes by att means att network doesn't have those bands? Or does it mean att have those bands but the 925 is not able to receive them?

    At&t does not use it. The mobile version of Lumia 925 uses it
