Nokia Admits Error: No Surprise 1700 MHz 3G For Lumia 920
We’re all excited to see the Nokia Lumia 920 finally arrive, coming to AT&T in the States as an exclusive (though we’ve already seen signs of the phone preparing to spread its wings and fly to other carriers). What if you were planning to side-step any of those carrier restrictions and snag an unlocked 920 to do with as you please? According to Nokia’s website, the international 920 has some penta-band 3G support, operating on the expected 850, 900, 1900, and 2100 MHz bands in addition to the 1700MHz AWS T-Mobile uses as its primary 3G band. Could you pay full price for the phone and pop in a T-Mobile SIM?
As it turns out, that listing is in error. WPCentral contacted Nokia, which confirmed that the 920 does not support 1700MHz. Supposedly, Nokia’s working on correcting its listing, but for the moment, at least, the erroneous frequency coverage is still up on its site.
So, don’t get any smart ideas and start putting the money together for an international 920 with the hopes of bringing it to T-Mobile; you’re just going to be disappointed.
