    After much thought, I took the plunge and ordered my 820 this morning

    Coming from a Blackberry, I'm looking forward to something a bit more interesting and up to date. Will post my thoughts when it arrives in mid-week!

    I would only like to say that you're in for a treat. I myself switched from Android and not long before that I was on iOS.
    I instantly fell in love with Lumia when I saw it in my local store for the first time. Not long after that I got myself a Lumia 920 and have loved it to bits since.
    I can say this is by far better than iOS and especially Android (this is only my personal feeling, some might beg to differ which is cool)
    Hope you enjoy yours when you get it!

    I can clearly tell you that I did my research, as well as some trial and error.....

    You are gonna sh!t yourself when you get your hands on this powerful little beast! I hope is last forever! If so, I will never have to by another phone!

    Cyan shells should be out in the next week. Mobile fun uk emailed me saying they're expecting stock on the 18th. Not sure about anywhere else.

    So 1 week later and no new handset. Contacted p4u to find they have no stock and wont be getting any for a couple of weeks. I am really angry and disappointed that they took my order and didnt mention the stock issue, so I think i'll have to look at the 8X instead.

    Thats the last time I use p4u

    I now have a white 820 cover to sell

    Do you really need a WP that desperately?

    I've been waiting to get one since it was announced last year! If I get a 'stock issue' too in a week's time when I plan to buy it then waiting a bit longer will be worth it.

    I'll try to go elsewhere to buy it than Phones4u though, that is quite annoying!

    my old phone is falling apart, other than that 2 weeks is do-able (if its 2 weeks)

    are the 920's as hard to find as the 820's? its a good sign for WP popularity if that is the case

    Came from a BB, too (Bold 9900). If you're interested in experiencing new things, you wont regret your decision.

    I got my 920 from EE on 9/11/2012 the first day it was available and I can't believe that almost 3 months later people can't get them still! Crazy.

    Despite being told that stock wasnt going to materialise for a week or 2, my 820 arrived today, and she is a thing of beauty
    I also negotiated a free month for the messy customer service, so my first month is going to feel even better!
    Ive just popped the white cover on and Im waiting for the new sim to activate.

    More updates and thoughts when Ive used it a bit

    Loving it so far

    It seems very fast and smooth, the OS is great and easy to use. Ive put some music on it, and downloaded skymaps, but I need to go out this weekend and test the camera a little. If Nokia start shouting a bit more about their products I can see people buying lots of Windows phones. Everyone seems interested, but don't seem to have seen one before.

    I found out today that the external speaker is relatively loud and useful compared to some recent handsets ive used.

    Also the Nokia apps are great

    Just got an 820 too! Mine's black but I'm thinking of getting a yellow shell. I keep telling myself yellow is too bright and gaudy, but it's so tempting...
