Hey everyone, pretty new to the boards, although I have had my HTC Radar for T-Mobile for almost a year now. I was thinking of buying an unlocked 920 from AT&T or waiting for the Samsung Ativ S to be announced with US carriers since my Radar has been glitchy as of recently.
I'm not necessarily that educated on how unlocked phones from different carriers work, but I know that that the cellular radios on the 920 doesn't include the frequencies that T-Mobile uses (or something along the lines of that). I don't have a data plan on my phone (I have access to WiFi most of my day so no real need for a data plan) so I was wondering if the unsupported cellular bands on the 920 is only for 3G/4G, or all types of cellular activity like making/receiving calls as well. I wouldn't mind having a 920 on T-Mobile even if it meant no data plan; it's such an awesome phone!
Thanks for the help guys!

I was in an AT&T store a few hours ago in downtown DC to see if they had the cyan 920 (they don' t) and I overheard a customer speaking with a rep who sounded like he knew what he was talking about . He was saying the customer could buy the 920 without a contract, but that AT&T would not give him an unlock code -- he would have to get that from a "third party". FWIW...

Guys I am from India and I have this phone from AT&T.
I have contacted cellunlock to get the unlock code and trying different ways to pursue AT&T to provide me the unlock code.
I was not successful so far but well I would say even with 3 months of wait for exclusivity to run out this is a good deal $500 from US and in India it might be around Rs. 36,000 it will be 10K Cheaper for me after 3 months.
Unlock codes will be available then.

You already got the answer about unlocking it. As far as the T-Mobile frequencies go, they've been changing things to support the iPhone. My old Lumia 800 now works fine on their network (it also only supports the AT&T 3G bands). I think LTE would work as well, once T-Mobile upgrades
