The 822 has a larger battery (1800mAh compared to 1650mAh), more memory (16Gb onboard vs 8Gb), better forward facing camera (1280x960 vs 640x480)...All around Verizon really did a service to its customers by improving some specs on the device to outsell the other carriers (IMO).

However, if you're moving to Verizon, you certainly can't go wrong with the 822.

The 820 is the worst of the bunch and is the one for AT&T. You Americans are actually lucky in this regard, as over in the UK we can either go to EE for the 920 (£36/mth for 500MB 4G data, really?), or you can be stuck with the 820...
Anyways, to answer your question, I personally would say pick a carrier then pick your device. So, if you want Verizon service then get the 822, but if you're happy with T-Mobile's service get the 810.

Hey, I'm new to this section of the forum, having initially been interested in the L920. I thought I was sold on the 920, but then I demo'd it in the at&t store and it felt was just a tad too big. Then I saw the 820. Wow- perfect size, plus the SD card slot just seals the deal for me. Now I am noticing that my own carrier has the 810 - durr. The only issue is I pay month-to-month, so I would need to pay full price- ugh. Debating whether I should just buy the cheaper at&t 820 and wait for an unlock.

If you're in the US (and i assume you are) I'd seriously consider the 810 or 822 if you want to switch carriers.

I'm a T-Mobile prepay customer, and I plan to stay that way. The thing is, the 810 is $100 more at the Microsoft store than the 820. Is it worth it to me? Not really. I hardly ever do video chat, and besides, the 820 has readily available back covers in red. I need my phone in red, man! (lol)
