Hi, I am planning to switch to T-mobile, I have a Nokia Lumia 920 from AT&T which I got unlocked.
I would like to know if there are any issues, like 3G/4G connectivity when I use this phone on AT&T.
On other blogs I was reading about the frequencies T-mobile uses.
Please anyone whoever using AT&T Lumia920 on T-mobile, throw some light.

I gave my mom my old ATT HTC Titan. She's on T-Mobile and only gets 3g and has problems getting and sending pics and texts. Phone calls seem to work but signal drops often. I thought it was location but my dad's galaxy s4 works perfectly on tmoblie. Good luck!!

you're in luck, my friend, i just bought a 920 yesterday and am using it on T-mobile now.
popped in my T-mo SIM card, 920 asked for unlock code, entered, no problem.
updated Amber/GRD2 on it (i will write a summary on the sticky "920 update thread" as well - a lot of loose, non-centralized quesitons & answers there.)
the only other thing i did was manually input the APN setting to enable picture text.
i have not done any speed tests on it. also i've exhausted my 500MB 4G data quota, so all my data is on 2G anyhow.

I just made this same transition this past weekend. But service in my area is very poor using T-Mobile with my AT&T Lumia 920, so I'm going to get myself a Lumia 925 today. I know this because I picked up a pre-paid Lumia 521 on T-mobile yesterday from walmart to test the same areas where I noticed my service was really bad and it was much better.
I would give using the Lumia 920 on T-mobile a shot, but if you have service coverage issues, it's because the incompatibility of the radio. I would test that by going to your local Walmart and picking up a Lumia 521 to see if your coverage improves. Lumia 521 only supports 4G though, so can't test the LTE with it.

I switched my 920 from ATT to TMobile a few weeks ago. I get L, H+, 3G depending on the area I am in. 90% if the time it's L. From what I read it depends on whether T-Mobile has upgraded in your area. In the metro Detroit area they have so I get good reception wherever I go so far.

I've got mixed reviews, mostly positive tho. I decided to move to T-mobile anyways for better covrage, AT&T sucks in my apartment.
I hope 920 works, if not I will grab 925.
@Kieta: Hey, I believe you are referring to 1700 reframed to 1900 (a quick bing search showed me this info), I live in Austin Metro area, and t-mobile seems to have upgraded Austin. Hopefully I get 3G/4G on my phone.
Thanks all for chipping in your thoughts..

T-Mobile just wasn't working me on the Lumia 920.
I was getting decent reception on T-Mo with the 521, but on the 920 signal was very weak, sending/receiving MMS was horrendous.
so I made the move to Straight Talk and worked much better.
the $45 plan with ST was also better than T-Mo's.
