Summary: This is really not an unlocked phone. It looks like the AT&T locked phone is unlocked by the code and delivered. It still has AT&T default apps which you see in the locked phones. I contacted Ross Cellular on this, they replied that this model is AT&T branded, so you will have all those apps. Even though it worked with different carrier (tried T-Mobile), but if you are really looking for an unlocked phone don't get this model.
Summary: Nice sturdy phone. Unlocked and able to use at lte speeds in the Bahamas. Getting use to the Windows OS. It's horrible compared to Android systems and the ease in which you can access things that made life so easy like Google stored contacts and photos automatically. Music player does not have search :( little basic stuff missing but an awesome camera n great processing speed sort of makes up for it. Good phone but if you're use to Android I'd stick to that.
Summary: Pretty good phone, needs more memory and camera could take better pics inside a dark place, (come out grainy), but does everything I want it to and more once I got all my apps and customized it. Though will be upgrading to the 920 to get the 32GB memory. Definitely like that I could upgrade to 8.1 windows!! All came packaged well and arrived quickly. No problems getting it working with AT&T, already unlocked, no problems at all.
Summary: Phone came in the original AT&T box and in great condition as stated. It says it is unlocked, but doesn't work for Sprint. It works perfectly for T-Mobile though. Before this phone, I used a T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Exhibit 4G, a first generation android. That was small 3' or so and very light. I wasn't looking for the latest smartphone (iPhone), but something affordable and efficient for basic functions. This phone is it.
In this phone continuous defects! In China it made in the garbage!
16 October 2014
Summary: The phone is very bad. Build quality is terrible! Nokia died ... Enumerating the major shortcomings that have appeared in 5 months: 1) Camera - on all pictures black spots. Black spots are especially noticeable on the background of the sky, plain surfaces. Also the matrix has some black spots. All Pictures are defective. 2) the camera is very poor color rendering, color purple, human skin as a patient with fever, all photos must be corrected.
Summary: I love the phone. Works great. The phone was good price, and the phone features are great. Had phone for a while, still works great. It's dual core, 8 mega pixal, Carl zeis lens, full HD video. Pictures great in dark or light. Vidios great too.
Summary: These Lumia 820's are a really good deal. They can be upgraded to the latest 8.1 software release and have a very good Zeiss 8.9 mp camera that works much better than the reviews say, especially in low light. The 8gb of internal memory and Qualcomm Snapdragon processor give really good performance, not to mention 1gb of ram. I have had no problems at all using a 64gb memory card. If you can pick one of these up for under $60 -- go for it!
Don't purchase from Ross Cellular - The phones are Refurbished!!!
24 September 2014
Summary: Please don't purchase from Ross Cellular - The phones are Refurbished, my phone had a lifetime timer of 72 hours you can check by ##634# on any Lumia phone. The phone is ATT branded but unlocked. Has a aftermarket back cover there was no NOKIA logo on it. The screen and lens have a plastic cover on top. Which makes the outside look deceivingly new. - Updated the phone to latest Windows 8.1 took 6 hours and 5 updates to move to latest version.
