    Well, you can upgrade up to the Lumia 925, which is a bit larger, or the value-priced 521, which is smaller. (those are the models available directly carried by T-Mo)

    If you really like the 820 series, you can spring for an unlocked 820 or other phone, as long as its unlocked. You may or may not get 3G, LTE, both although it depends where you are, what bands are supported by the phone you get.

    Since T-Mo is GSM, any unlocked Lumia should work, the question is just to what extent.
    Did you mean any unlocked AT&T phone? Obviously Sprint and Verizon won't work.

    822 does not work well on T-Mo for SMS/MMS issues. I have listed those issues in the 822 forums. SMS can be made to work 100% of the time by setting the data speed to 2G and then toggle back to LTE for surfing. MMS is a known problem on T-MO. On AT&T both seem to work on the 822 without issues and there are multiple threads with the correct APN listings for AT&T or Straight Talk.
    How odd. SMS uses the voice carrier, slipping in between pulses. MMS does use data, but 2G or 4G shouldn't matter.

    Not saying you are incorrect, just puzzling. Illogical.

    Well folks it's been an interesting ride but I'm going to buy Z1S, I test drove it today and man that thing is nice. It has everything in a phone that I want and then some. The screen is gorgeous, off angle viewing is over blown imo. It looks just fine from viewing off angle plus WiFi calling FM transmitter 3/5 day batt life and water resistant. I own a pool company so this fits me perfect if and when I drop the phone in a pool. The plus side is Sony's own UI on the phone it is beautiful and smooth I was really blown away with all the features this phone has to offer and not to mention no more limitations on apps.
    And you're posting this on a Windows Phone forum, the thread seeking WP alternatives to the 810?

    Some Lumia from Verizon would.
    Lumia 928 (Verizon) it's a world phone GSM and CDMA and by law it's SIM unlocked.
    Just have to download access point and....read for yourself
