I'm sure MS would love to have all their flagship phones on all the carriers. This decision is up to the carriers. They only want so many SKU's to deal with and if you only have 3% market share...

Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 Preview Commented on: 6 weeks ago (July 30, 2014)

If you have an unlocked 520 then you will get the update directly from MS without having to get approval by the carriers. I have an unlocked 1520 on T-Mobile and received the cyan and 8.1 update... Updated with Advanced Rules, Undo, and In-line Reply Commented on: 10 weeks ago (July 1, 2014)

Google Nexus 4: Photos and First Impressions Commented on: 1 year ago (February 2, 2013)

I really wish I could get a Windows Phone unlocked for the price of this. The cheapest I can get for T-MO US is the Lumia 810 for $450. I'm on the value plan so I don't qualify for subsidized...
