    They also have the power to remove features from OS, for example Data Sense, which is actually what we have already paid for. Or maybe at the time when we decided to purchase an AT&T phone/service, we were doomed to be treated unequally. I hate that AT&T always exercises their "power" to limit what their user can get from what is available.
    hey Verizon did the same thing, that's why when I had my wp7 I left them no visual voicemail and no wireless tethering...remember the grass is always greener on the other side...because it gets more manure...att has been such a better supporter of the windows phone, it was worth leaving.

    James8561 mixed-up the RM numbers for the AT&T and international versions of the Lumia 920.

    RM-820 is the AT&T Lumia 920 and RM-821 is the international version.

    it is not their ******* choice whether or not to support it! Google sells Nexus 4 just fine!
    It is their choice.

    They can just say that they won't market Windows Phone at all.

    Nokia tried doing that stuff before. More bands that worked on multiple carriers. Dual SIMs. And guess what? Carriers in the US stopped subsidizing Nokia smart phones.

    ...and then Nokia seemed to just... disappear.

    Nokia did not due business in the USA because of a lawsuit that had something to do with cell radios and copy right crap. That's why they disappeared for a while.

    Once again, Google has PROVEN there is a market for phones sold to people who violently will not be part of the carrier scheme. These are customers that the carrier never will get, so to simply say they don't support it or don't approve simply means nothing.

    Not a bug enough market.

    And Android is already well established here. The people buying the Nexus off contract are for the most part tinkerers that want to start with a nice clean slate. They're also Android fans.

    Nokia doesn't have that here.

    you don't know that. If the phones are sold at full price, who cares how many they sell? The carriers won't because they pose no competition to them otherwise.

    If that were true, you'd see it more often.

    got a link? The only ones I see there are vague in saying unlocked, but don't confirm they are UNRBANDED.

    My theory is that they figured GD3 is not too far away so they will just release them both at once

    It takes a "lot" of time to bloat a clean OS with crapware from a carrier, this "lot" of time can range anywhere from a week to a year or even more and the carrier is allowed to say "The update is due very soon"

    You can flash a generic OS on your AT&T phone and make it receive updates, but not everybody knows this and the carrier likes to take an advantage of people.

    Some guy posted a thread on installing generic OS on an AT&T L920.
