Ill gladly take one unlocked to use on Tmobile monthly. Don't know why tmobile didn't go directly for this instead of the junky 521 which doesn't even have a flash on the camera. Yet they advertise the camera lenses etc on the 521 but it's gonna be pretty useless in low light.

It's a developing world phone, and LTE is still rare in most 3rd world nations

Not really, at&t will consume a lot of data, and at&t isn't unlimited data so not missing much there, plus their lte conversion falls short compared with Verizon

The 4th best camera on a smartphone out there... After the 808pureview, Lumia920, and the Htc one but still mid range

The 720 is a nice phone but nokia will ruin its success if thats how they will sell it off contract.Its almost the same price as the galaxy s3 will be soon after s4 is launched!!! Nokia cant compete with s3 unless they fix that price

If it's around $200-300 off-contract, and the S3 drops to around $500 from its current $700 (MSRP) that's still a huge difference.

Yes they can, retard, you get the s3 cheap because you're signing a 2 year agreement to pay 107 $ a month (some people pay more, this is unlimited talk text and 2 gigabytes, no insurance) but when bought off contract you can use it with h2o and pay 40 $ a month, in just 10 months you'd save an average of 600 $ so no winning there with a gs3

If LTE isn't a consideration, this is nicer than the 820 I think - lighter, thinner, and the camera appears better (less MP, but better f-stop, and BSI which I don't think the 820 is).

If it's the same as the international version (no LTE), then I would imagine this would be for AT&T's prepaid GoPhone service, rather than a contract device. Great choice, if so, since it offers a better camera than the 900 or 820 and the same screen tech as its 920 sibling.

Also, this AT&T getting first-dibs is really frustrating. T-Mobile is the only carrier to offer a Nokia continuously, even during Nokia's darker time a few years ago, yet they get the mid-tier offerings. And buying the international version or an unlocked AT&T unit isn't great either since the 1900MHz band isn't widely deployed.
