  1. "SD card slot supporting cards up to 128MB"
    Should this be GB?

  3. Does that mean these Sprint versions of Lumia 635s will have different radios, or are the phones the same as the ones running on AT&T with some different firmware? Just curious because with swappable backs the used phone market might get a bit confusing for some people.

  4. Anon: Wouldn't such a phone that were firmware switchable between CDMA and GSM, as you seem to describe, have to come with both CDMA *and * GSM radios?

    Correct me if wrong....

  5. I have the Virgin Mobile variant of the 635. Can it be unlocked for domestic GSM service? (I don't think it has ATT or TMo LTE band support, but could I get at least UMTS on ATT or TMo?
