    I'm looking to get a phone to unlock, and although the 920 is cheaper generally, are there any significant differences between the two?

    The 928 is slightly thinner than the 920 and has a xenon flash in addition to the led (more natural lowlight w/flash photos). Also, because it primarily a CDMA phone the GSM bands will already be carrier unlocked, like the Verizon iPhone 5.

    also with amoled screen you will probably benefit more with the Nokia sleeping screen that comes later with the GDR2.

    Also, AFAIK no one has yet been successful in getting the 928 to fully function on any carrier other than Verizon (MMS, SMS, data - everything).

    Huh, that is strange. I was thinking of just going to Straight Talk lol. I wonder if that makes a difference. Thanks for all the feedback!

    Partner has a 920, I have 928. Imho 928 is superior. Better screen, less brick-like, better battery life so far....

    Also, check the 822 forum for the threads regarding that phone and use on other carriers - TMO, Straight Talk, etc. The 822 and 928, AFAIK have not been successfully used on any of the other carriers to their fullest ability. The removal of the needed settings seems to me to be in violation of 47 CFR 27.16 section (e), but it's going to take someone going into a courtroom to get Verizon to comply, I'm sure.

    Sounds like I should wait to see how the unlocking issues turn out.
