    So, if SMS eventually does work with TMo, does that mean we could use it on Straight Talk too with a TMo sim??
    Yes. I had my Lumia 928 working just fine on T-Mobiles network about a month ago (did it as a test). Also worked on AT&T

    Last question, did you pop in the sim and it worked or dis you put a certain API? If so what is it.

    The phone is SIM unlocked, just pop in the SIM and use the Access Point app in settings to choose the profile and it will work. Make sure access point is up to date though, the one the phone ships didn't save the APN properly (Verizon disabled it in the base OS settings).

    Does the amber update bring any surprises with respect to unlock?

    I have the same problem. Can only send SMS when the phone is in 2G mode, not 3G. Anyone has a solution?

    Just out of curiosity, why wouldn't you use either the Lumia 521 or 925 on T-Mobile? Both are sold and supported by T-Mobile and designed to work with that network. Both will get T-Mobile's 4G service too. Sounds to me like you guys trying to use the 928 on T-Mobile are going out of your way to make things tough on yourselves.

    It's the phone. 925 is not the same as 928. :D

    It's pretty darn close. Identical screens, same processor and memory, same camera. The biggest differences are the GSM/CDMA radios and that the 925 is slimmer and lighter. I'd prefer the 925 if it was available on Verizon.

    To a photog, though, the xenon flash on the 928 is plenty of reason to want it over the 925. To the person who has to have every gadget, the built-in wireless charging of the 928 beats the snap-on cover for the 925. To the person who is both (me ) 925 doesn't even compare.

    Wouldn't you be better served with an unlocked Lumia 1020?

    In the same boat, just got a 928 using it with a TMobile sim. SMS sending issues (error 1) unless the phone is in 2G. Amber FW and latest Nokia Access Point app installed. Anyone made any progress on this issues? Thanks

    So is there anyone who found a solution for that issue ( 3G and sending SMS ) or you already sold your nl 928?

    If an unlocked GSM phone would work on Verizon which uses a CDMA network, yes, I'd be better off. Since it won't, I have to wait for the VZW version of the 1020 to come.

    Hi, did you hear back from TMobile's 3rd tier support regarding this issue ?
    Im facing the exact same issues with my new unlocked verizon lumia 928. Everything works except for sending txt message. It works sometimes, called 2 tier support and they kept resetting my profile on their end and it would work but then it would stop working after 2 hours. Since its intermittent, I feel they are not able to troubleshoot the issue properly.
    Any advice on what you did to fix it, would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I have the same of problem (no outgoing SMS) even after getting the internet sharing to work using the foreign SIM trick. Unlocked for GSM out of the box - don't you believe it! I really wish there was a solution to this because I would like to keep the phone but it is going back.

    I don't have that problem..now. Can't tell what exactly fixed it but now I'm able to send txt msg (not mms) First of all, I don't use that txt message, maybe 1-3 times in a month, so I don't know when it got fixed. I did hard reset about month ago and updated Access Point (didn't update it before hard reset 'cause some ppl were saying they got some problems after update). Try doing hard reset or install/update Access Point (via SysApp pusher)

    The solution to this problem might be in this thread http://forums.windowscentral.com/htc...orkaround.html basically, go to SETTINGS>swipe left> PHONE and turn off international assist. I sent my 928 back because of this so I no longer have it to try. Please let the thread know if this works for you.

    I have the same problem. I tried the above suggestion and it did not work.
    However if I turn on LTE and turn on International Assist, SMS works !

    Still can't receive MMS. LTE On/Off
    International Assist

    I didn't put Access Point on the device. I can send MMS just fine, just can't receive any. I revisit the phone when ever I'm bored just in hopes of making this work. I have the Lumia 1020 and shouldn't really matter to me, but I love 928.

    Even flashed it back to Black 8.0 and it still won't work. Its sheer boredom that I revisit this device in hopes that MMS got fixed.

    same problem here. 928 on t-mobile (really Simple Mobile, but they use tmo spectrum) will send a few texts with SIM card set to LTE, but then it starts throwing error messages after a while.

    the access point app is set to T-Mobile LTE.

    putting it in 2g mode seems to solve the problem. 3g doesn't help though.

    the "international assist" box was already unchecked. checking it stopped SMS from sending but did not throw the error message to let me know it wasn't working.

    any assistance appreciated...

    Nokia Lumina 928:
    I did set the phone (inside the Carrier settings) to 2G/EDGE speeds. It worked. Now I can send messages
