But I cant unlock the AT&T Phone. Also I dont know if anyone tried using an AT&T Phone on T-Mobile
I guess both go together hand-in-hand as Unless you unlock, you cant use it on t-mobile

From what I understand the Dev and unlocked Roger's L920's work fine on T-mobile USA's 3G/4G and HSPA network and on ATT the data speeds will be 2G/EDGE? Likewise, from what I understand the ATT L920 can't be unlocked as of yet but if anyone has done it wiill it work on T-mobile's 3G/4G networks?
I just spoke with Roger's but they won't ship it to a non-Canadian address. However, they said you can go into a retail store and buy one so for those of you in the states near the border........The cost is $549+tax and $50 to unlock it. That doesn't sound all that bad when compared the $800+ they are going for on ebay.

I have relatives in Canada that could buy the phone for me if I sent them the money, and then ship it to me. But the fact that Rogers only offers black is turning me away from this option.

Thus said, the ATT version will most likely work on the 1700 MHZ band, but, I also asked my contact about sim locks by ATT and though she did not know much about it, since she is not responsible for the NA market, she mentioned that the sim-locks on all Windows Phones are almost impossible to break, unless the provider starts issuing them. Nokia supposedly cannot even take that lock of themselves (at least not in an easily accessible procedure ;-)).
Bottom line, I don't think we will see any unlocked ATT phones within the next 5 months. The international version sold online is not capable to run on the 1700 Mhz band, so if you need the 1700 Mhz band (are not in a reframed area), your only choice is Rogers for now.
I'd love to be proven wrong on this (since I really want the phone on T-Mob), but I have a feeling there is not much to be proven wrong about ;-)

It's actually not all that bad. This simply means that once ATT issues unlock codes, the ATT model will work on T-Mob 1700. Yes , it will be 5+ months, but you can always get a Rogers version of the phone. Would I want it differently, yes, but maybe I just have to dish out the money for this phone at full price.

Negri supposedly has the unlocked Rogers version. But once contacted, they told me that they do not have stock yet, and thus cannot confirm if it will be unlocked. Otherwise, the answer for now is NO. We'll have to wait till it hits the South American Market (if it ever does). I got my wife's Lumia 710 from Brazil.

Only difference currently is that Rogers version is Unlocked and hence we are able to test it on T-Mobile or 1700 Band.
If in the future, AT&T version is Unlocked by a 3rd party source, since it is the same ROM as Rogers, it should also be able to work on T-Mobile.
We as of now, we can only wait till April-2013 (Hoping the exclusivity ends by then) and unlock codes are available.
I already purchased the AT&T 920 Phone and in my case, I cant do anything other than wait and use my old HTC phone in the interim.

I wonder if there will be a version for T Mobile, and if so....... if it will be the same or added features. 6 Months is pretty old in cell phone time isn't it?
Isn't the CES between now and April 2013? So Nokia could make some announcement with a new phone......
Like the one poster said, I want to give Nokia my money but they won't take it.
Or will it be like the Galaxy note 1, when TMo got it, then not too long later and updated Galaxy note 2 was launched on Tmo.

It seems AT&T firmware cripples the AWS 1700 permanently somehow. And the Dev phones are RM-820 which are North American phones.
