    Which Lumia 900 would work best on TMO?

    I am contemplating getting a 900 but unsure as to which would get the highest data speeds on TMO. The three options would be:

    ATT 900, which could presumably be unlocked (though not sure)
    Rogers 900, out of contract price (presumably unlocked)
    European/world 900, unlocked, when available, without LTE

    The preferred route would be ATT, IF I can get them to a) unlock the phone and b) keep my 'current' unlimited data plan - which is still showing as a CSD / TDMA plan

    Which would be better short and long-term on TMO???

    It's possible the 900 may not even get 3G on T-Mobile, unless you live in one of the few markets that have PCS/1900MHz 3G.

    So far Nokia has confirmed it supports AWS for LTE, which both Rogers and AT&T use, and T-Mobile has said they will eventually launch. Listed supported bands on Nokia's site:

    Operating Frequency

    Operating band

    GSM 850
    GSM 900
    GSM 1800
    GSM 1900
    WCDMA Band V 850
    WCDMA Band VIII 900
    WCDMA Band II 1900
    LTE Band 17 (700)
    LTE Band 4 (1700/2100)

    So basically, the 900 will be a 2G/Edge phone on TMO until they launch AWS LTE . . . in my market. Does the World version 900 support TMobile's 3G/4G AWS frequencies?
