Thinking about buying the Lumia 900 from USA and getting it shipped to my country, so i had a few questions:
- buying the phone off-contract ($450) from Amazon will get me an unlocked version ( can put any SIM on it ) or is it locked to AT&T ? if it is, is there any other websites that do sell it unlocked ?
- I suppose i can turn of the LTE and limit it to 3G connectivity such is now with my hd7 ? ( limiting it to Edge or 3G )
Overall do you think its a good idea ? given the many battery problems and other issues ? since if i recieve a defective one i won't be able to return it.
thanks in advance :)

Nokia Lumia 900 LTE Black (Unlocked) #LUMIA900BLK - Expansys USA @ $750 ? or how much did the website charge you for the unlock ?

I don't know if the unlock will work. I haven't received the code yet. I ordered it from CellPhoneUnlock.net | Unlock Cell Phone | #1 Cell Phone Unlock to any GSM Network ... I never used them before and I am a bit skeptical as they raised the price to 69.99 now, it was 24.99 when I ordered.

Buying from Europe is your best bet, the US versions will be locked to at&t then you have to go scrambling for an unlock code. Buying from someone like clove.co.uk will get you an unlocked phone that will work worldwide and probably cheaper than ripoff Expansys.
