Any idea if the unlocked 1020 will take advantage of the T-Mobile LTE? One place showed it did not have band 4 for LTE, another showed that it did have band 4. I am on the developer 920 and it works OK but seems to have gotten worse reception wise since they rolled out LTE in South Florida.

Full specs for the Nokia Lumia 1020: 6 lenses, 2GB of RAM, and more | Windows Phone Central
According to the WPCentral article by Sam Sabri, it will not have the Band 4.

Found the Nokia one: http://www.nokia.com/us-en/phones/ph...pecifications/
Eeek...that is ugly...looks like the article must be talking about a seperate model entirely or something.
WPCentral: LTE network bands 1, 3, 7, 20, 8
Nokia: LTE network bands: 2, 4, 5, 17
Found what you meant by Windows Phone also, but I'm sure that is just a copy from Nokia's site.: LTE BC2; LTE BC4; LTE BC5; LTE BC17

Is anyone else really getting annoyed with having to always figure out the bands that are supported? Whatever happened to OEMs putting in all the bands and just saying to the carriers to suck it, with their constant limitations on consumers who pay $$$ for the device.
It should be once the contract is over/phone unlocked you should be able to use it on all neworks worldwide.

Just saying is all. Almost switched to AT&T back in October for the L920, and am so damn glad that I did not. AT&T is a **** carrier, that I am happy everyday which I wake up and am no longer one of their customers. And 16GB internal memory non-withstanding, the L925 is a much better product than the L920. I'm just glad I waited and got the better phone. And am more than happy to wait again to get the better version of the L1020.

What about Verizon support? The international unlocked versions says:
WCDMA network: 900 MHz, 2100 MHz, 1900 MHz, 850 MHz
WCDMA max data speed DL: HSDPA - 42.2 Mbps
WCDMA max data speed UL: HSUPA - 5.76 Mbps
Does that mean it would work with Verizon LTE?

The AT&T version will work on tmobile's a lte bands, and as someone has already mentioned in this thread, in reframed 1900hz areas. You will have to check with your local tmobile representative if you live in a reframed area. otherwise if LTE is already rolled out in your area, all you need is an unlocked att lumia 1020. You can find unlocked versions for preorder on negrielectronics and mobilecity. And I believe the prices are pretty reasonable.

Thanks for the info. Just to confirm - If I live in an area where T Mo has activated 4G LTE (like NYC), I will have coverage at home. If I travel somewhere without 4G LTE, it will work if the area is a "refarmed 1900hz area"?
What does the second point mean in practical terms? How broad is the refarmed area coverage? My understanding was that T Mo's 4G LTE coverage wasn't that broad yet, so I want to get a sense of how spotty I'll be if I leave NYC.
