I originally owned (actually still have it) an 810 but switched to an unlocked Rogers 920 in May. I miss some things about the 810 (AMOLED screen, lighter weight), but the 920 is great. You won't regret getting one if you do. It's a solid phone, and it's nice to have 32GB of storage. Also runs just as smoothly on T-Mobile as the 810. I even managed to get LTE on my phone in some locations.

Search results for: 'nokia lumia 920' I got the black one, and it was around $100 more when I ordered it (which bummed me out a little because the price went down like a week later!). You might also want to try eBay and see if someone is selling one cheaper, because I keep reading that it's possible to get a 920 for something like $300. Of course, another option you might want to consider is the 925 when it comes to T-Mobile... Although that might not be doable for you since you said you're on contract.

But if you want to stay with your current plan, looking into an unlocked Rogers 920 would be your best bet. I'm sure the prices will go down again. So far, since I bought my 920, I've seen prices decrease twice. Good luck!

I would, personally, stay away from this switch.
I had a T-Mobile branded 810 that was and is rock-solid (wife using it now) and switched to an unlocked AT&T 920 which, despite going through all the standard issues with bands, LTE, MMS, etc. and fixes, still is not reliable enough.
In Los Angeles, I constantly lose signal; I do get LTE but internet access and data is slow at best and non-existent at worst. Have talked to different T-Mobile support people and the best I could get is that "the LTE deployment has been a little problematic for data access but the problems should go away soon" with "soon" never quite defined. I even have one of the T-Mobile repeaters at home and where my wife's phone regularly sees 5 bars, I can be standing next to it and get, maybe, one. I've had the phone checked and supposedly the antenna and everything else is good.
Personally, I would stick with the 810. This may be a bum 920 in the end but for me, it was not worth the switch.
