I purchased a 925 from romania, which of course not intended for use in Canada, with stock romanian rom it gets the H+ for network speed, Installing the stock t-mobile 925 rom from Nokia I now recieve LTE as the network speed. I love the 925 and it should have also been released in Canada. the RM-938 will be released in Canada but unsure of the network, but according to FCC it supports Rogers LTE bands and being that rogers is supposed to be the premiere partner for windows phone in canada you would think rogers would be the ones releasing the device. hopefully it will be released at the same time as the verizon one in the states and the dont miss the holiday season.
While browsing, I came across a page of a guy in Alberta that said his corporate Rogers rep said Rogers will be carrying the 1520 in the next few weeks - whatever that means. Encouraging still for those that want to wait. I have a question for the community ... if we were to buy the 1520 model from the Alberta company ... I think they're called Omega (or something like that) ... when it comes to updates ... how would we they come to us, or how might we get them. With Rogers, they're pushed to the phones (although it often feels like it takes forever)? Does anybody have an answer to that one. I think knowing the answer to that one is the only thing holding me back from ordering one next week.
Another question, I've got a SIM card in my HTC One with Rogers, would I be able to remove it from the HTC and insert it in the 1520 and away we go - or is there something else I'd have to do ... like go to the Rogers store, get a new SIM or something? I'm actually in the technology business ... and I can't believe I don't know the answer to these questions!!
And a gripe I've got ... has anyone else noticed how difficult it is to find a phone number to call a Nokia human being to ask questions about their product - and no, I don't mean a carrier on behalf of the manufacturer. They clearly (in my opinion) don't want to talk to the throngs of us. There doesn't seem to be a way to communicate with them. Any suggestions anyone?
Also has anybody heard if Microsoft plans to support Java in upcoming releases of the Windows Phone because I believe the 1520 still doesn't support it in its OS?
Does anybody know when Microsoft is expecting to push out the next major upgrade or patch to the Windows Phone OS?
Also, will the current version of Windows Phone support multiple browsers or is IE 10 the only one still? I used to own a Windows Phone 7 and wanted to upgrade but there weren't any excellent alternatives at the time and now that the 1520 is out ... I'm IN!
Nobody's talking about the 2520 much. This is also a device I'd like to get. Does anyone know if a Rogers wireless account can be shared between two or more devices?
