So I am living in a refarmed area. For example, I am currently using an iPhone 4 on T-mobile that picks up a 3G signal. Where would you recommend that I pick up a Lumia 920? Also, if I buy now will it eventually become completely unlocked (assuming they release the codes down the line)?
Thank you very much for your time.

Hmm... So it seems like there isn't really a consensus as to which model would be suitable for right now as well as when all the devices get unlocked? I would really prefer the 920 to the 8X, but I am just afraid of locking myself into some slow bands with T-Mobile...

If you get the international version, it will be unlocked and will work on T-Mobile's 3G, but it won't work on T-Mobile's future LTE network.
If you get the AT&T version, you won't be able to unlock it for another 5 months, when their exclusivity ends. But it's cheaper.
I personally don't care about data speeds since I don't have a data, and I'm almost always with wifi connection so I'm getting the international version. I would go with the international version if I were you. Or buy a Lumia 810.

I live in a refarmed area too and I had purchased an AT&T 920 with the hopes that I could find a way to unlock it. After trying my best to get AT&T to unlock it (and failing), I sold it... mobileunlocked.co.uk is optimistic they'll have unlock codes at some point but I didn't feel like waiting.
I've also found that TMo's refarmed 1900 HSPA+ hasn't been the most reliable of connections, so I decided to preorder the unlocked Rogers 920 from Negri. The way I see it, pentaband UMTS is always preferable and the fact that it'll support TMo's LTE when that goes live is bonus points. Downside: only black is available and I dunno when it'll actually ship...hoping before Xmas=/Current: Lumia 1020 (unlocked, international), Dell Venue Pro 8, Acer Aspire S7 (2013)
