    Just got Nokia Lumia 920! Seems Pentaband WCDMA as well as LTE!! See pics!

    I just picked up the Lumia 920 a while ago...

    Here are some interesting pics from the box AND manual, indicating this should work on Wind if unlocked!
    It includes WCDMA 1700/2100

    (I have modified and removed IMEI number for security)

    hkalltheway,

    Greetings.

    Thank you for your sharing. While the box and manual should be accurate with the information, I would rather check with the FCC and Industry Canada filings to be absolutely sure. It is because there have been exception...

    http://www.howardforums.com/showthre...1#post14041551

    Anyway, both FCC and IC filings show the Nokia Lumia 920 (RM-820) is indeed supporting the UMTS Band IV (AWS) that used by WIND, Mobilicity and Videotron, as well as LTE Band 4 (AWS) that used by Rogers, Bell and TELUS.

    Hello,

    When I go to manual network selection, I see both "Wind" and "Mobilicity"

    That just about confirms it's capable of picking it.

    hkalltheway,

    Scanning them, Seeing them, Picking them do not equal to "Registering" with them. The sure way, besides the emission designators certified by FCC and IC, is using the active WIND and Mobilicity SIM card to find out beyond any doubt.

    Anyway, it is great to know a handset that works on virtually all major Canadian carriers here at home as well as most others around the world! Plus, factory unlocked!! Thank you for your observations again!!!

    Ahh, the suspense is killing me! Can somone just stick a mobilicity/wind sim in there? Its frustrating how we have to do a physical test to find this information out. I cant wait to get this phone, but im not feeding the giants.

    Considering the box says WCDMA AWS I'm sure it'll work fine.

    Didn't Nokia launch a device not to long ago with the same thing on the box but didn't actually have Pentaband? Until someone tests it I wouldn't trust a Nokia box.

    FYI: The unlocked Lumia 920 does not support T-Mobile’s 1700 AWS band







    We contacted Nokia on the matter and they confirmed it is in error, which they will be correcting soon. That’s of course a shame for those of you who were holding out hope, as the notion of buying an unlocked Lumia 920 to run on T-Mobile’s “4G” HSPA+ network is an enticing alternative to not having that phone offered on contract.

    But to be honest, it wouldn't make financial sense for Nokia to add the extra support for 1700 AWS as the cost to do so versus the amount of devices they would sell in the US would not justify the investment.

    For the record, here are the official, corrected bands for the Lumia 920. Thanks for all of those who pointed this out via your tips.


    US (AT&T) Lumia 920

    GSM/EGSM 850/900/1800/1900
    WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100
    LTE 1700/2100 (4), 700 (17)


    International, unlocked Lumia 920

    GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900
    WCDMA: 2100, 1900, 850, 900
    LTE: 2100, 1800, 2600, 900, 800

    I also haven't seen a Pentaband + LTE chipset -- but maybe I'm wrong on that....

    There it is, so this is commonplace error on Nokia's part nowadays.

    Great now we have to wait 6 months for AWS version of a low-end lumia. And by then it will be be pretty old. Why can they make AWS 1700 version of the 820 but not the 920. I mean why does mobilicty/wind get the crappiest models much much later if they get them at all.

    Their error was giving exclusivity on their handsets -- not a good way to re-enter the market.

    Rogers has exclusivity on the 920 in Canada so it wouldn't really matter anyways...
