T-Mobile customers can get compatible version of the Nokia Lumia 1520 from third party seller
If you're a T-Mobile customer seeking a Windows Phone flavored handset from the carrier, your choices are rather limited. There is the T-Mobile version of the most popular Windows Phone model, the Nokia Lumia 521. Or you could go upscale with the Nokia Lumia 925. But if you want something like the Nokia Lumia 1520 to use on your T-Mobile account, you're out of luck. Or are you?

As it turns out, the Nokia Lumia 1520.3 (RM-938) is a version of the phablet for third parties, and it apparently offers connectivity with the same AWS bands used by...good guess...T-Mobile. In addition, this model also works on AT&T's LTE network.

Since it is unlocked, and not tied down to AT&T's network, this version of the Lumia 1520 uses the Qi standard for wireless charging instead of the PMA standard used by AT&T. In addition, the unlocked version comes with 32GB of native storage, double the amount that the carrier locked AT&T unit offers you.

You can find this model at Negri Electronics and Newegg both only in black. White and yellow variants are back ordered. Pricing is in between $624 and $657, so it is not cheap. But if you are a T-Mobile customer who wants this phone more than anything, this is the price you must pay for your feelings.
