    I'm thinking of getting this phone (or L1520) but would like to know if L930 is compatible with 4GLTE in USA ? I can get it unlocked from Ebay for less than $400. But don't want to spend that kind of money is phone will not work with 4GLTE. My current carrier is Cricket Wireless.

    Not sure. I tried the same thing with a Lumia 820. The store personnel were not able to make it work. I tried at one store. I'd really like my 820 to work on Cricket, so if someone else was able to make this happen, I'd like to know also.

    I believe it will. I know the 1520 for AT&T works on Cricket. The 930 isn't sold here by any carrier I don't think. I would check to see if the GSM bands on the 930 and the 1520 match.

    the only true way is to speak with Cricket Wireless customer service. I doubt the store people can answer the question without have the phone to work on.

    If Cricket is, in fact, a AT&T mvno, then yes, the 930 will work however you will not get LTE speeds, HSPA+ only.
    I had a 930 for a short time and it worked fine on AT&T without the LTE as expected my me, because they don't have the LTE bands that AT&T uses.

    Its good idea to ask Cricket customer service reps but they dont say anything more than what their script on screen says. So as per Cricket Any GSM unlocked phone works on their network. Does that mean you will get LTE speed ? Dont know.

    Nope, the 930 won't get LTE on Cricket. Only Lumia phones that support Cricket's LTE are:

    635, 735, 820, 830, 920, 925, 1020, 1320, 1520

    And that too the North/Latin American variants only. Also any ATT locked phones would work on Cricket without being unlocked

    I'm curious, if you don't get 4g LTE, what are the speeds like if 930 is used in USA and Canada, I'm thinking about getting international unlocked 930 for 375usd , but I'm coming from Caribbean country whose internet speed is only 2G

    For the record, Cricket Wireless is not simply an AT&T MVNO, but rather a wholly owned subsidiary of AT&T that operates on the same network. AT&T LTE operates on bands 1, 2, 4, 5, and 17. (This means it operates in the 700 MHz B band, the 1700/2100 AWS-I band, and areas where AT&T has refarmed old GSM 850 and 1900 MHz network spectrum to LTE.) On Cricket Wireless, LTE speeds top out around 10 Mbps (though AT&T's network is not capped, Cricket is). This is comparable to 4G HSPA+ speeds in many areas. Any AT&T phone will work with 4G LTE on Cricket. Any international smartphone that supports HSPA+ in the 850/1900 MHz and 1700/2100 MHz bands will work with full 4G HSPA+ support.

    Actually HSPA+ is not 4G but rather 3G and Cricket even caps that speed.
    I'm on AT&T and getting HSPA+ at 12~13 mps, much faster than even Crickets LTE speeds.

    overall it's still quite faster than 2g speeds that I know of in my country, I'm to travel and would like to us 930 I wanna purchase in USA and Canada later this year so I wanna know.i think it should be sufficient for me , I don't watch much videos on mobile

    Yes the speeds are decent but not great. HSPA+ is limited to 4-5MBPS while LTE is capped between 8-10. Plus since it uses AT&T's towers, coverage is quite good

    The only time I really notice the speed difference is when downloading apps. I haven't noticed much of a difference Watching YouTube, streaming Pandora and surfing the web on 3g vs lte
