    Trust me. This is the way to go with T-Mobile. I've been with them for over 10 years. I've only upgraded my phone once through them. The rest, I bought from elsewhere. I'm on dev preview with my Lumia 810. T-Mobile sucks with updates. I'm leaning towards the 1520.3. The 1525 is totally fake.
    Yep until Microsoft gives us a reason to believe that its real I'm not getting my hopes up for the 1525. Would be nice though for the holidays. Really nice.

    This may not be final but I talked with a T-Mobile rep and he stated that he hasn't heard anything regarding new Windows Phones except for the Nokia Lumia 635. Sigh.

    I doubt that's final but I'm getting the Sony Xperia Z3 as soon as it comes out. I'm basically just waiting now. The whole Flipboard debacle is another reason I'm leaving. These developers took a whole year to give us that? And many other apps are way behind in features when compared to iOS and Android. I hope this is just a temporary journey with Android(I can get a new phone as soon as 50% of the phone is paid off with T-Mobile) unless I really like it. Plus I wouldn't buy into too much on what these reps say cause the last time I asked a rep about the HTC One for Windows they didn't even have a clue.

    I've always thought of getting a Sony phone. But, I'm big into camera performance and reviews of their camera disappoints me.

    Ah yes Flipboard. It's too bad that it didn't pan out too well for Windows Phone users. I hope they improve the app for users. It's not a deal breaker for me since I prefer Feedly or Weave.

    Nokia is by far the leader in imaging advancements and built in software features but Sony has come a long way. The camera unit on the Z2 has performed admirably from what I've seen and the Z3 looks to build on that. Most reviewers have said that the Sony's camera takes pretty decent shots out of the box(at least well above average) and even better with manual just like most Nokia phones. Most of Sony's software features come in way of apps it seems but I'm fine with that. If I can have a great camera(probably not THE best), great battery life, cool features(slow motion video, remote play, etc.), in a sleek design made available for my carrier I'm in and the Z3 seems to meet all those check marks.(based on reviews)

    The Verge (iVerge) has released a review of the Z3. I had Poki read it for me. For the most part, the phone is great :)

    why do youll settle for carrier crap though,all they do is give you a locked handset with bloat for a period of time and no updates and only play by their rules
    instead i think a prepaid route with a cheap well made unlocked handset is better because you get more flexibility etc

    Some people would like more hardware/software that would better support their carrier. With T-Mobile, a phone that supports their upcoming 700 MHz band and Wi-Fi calling are a couple of features that can be a deal breaker.

    Ha I just read that review and they actually gave it a fair review. The photo samples look very promising. And the battery life...yes please!

    I completely agree with that statement, Karthik. Worst time was when the AT&T buyout failed.

    yeah though i believe you guys can flash a country variant rom for updates but cannot flash back to a carrier rom
    its sad that the contract system offers alot of advantages but doesnt give basic stuff,maybe itll improve once people start bashing them for such practices
