    Congratulations!

    No word (I mean literally nothing at all, most other places have at least a vague idea) on pricing, availability or preorders. It's great how Nokia supports its own people lol :P

    Not sure what you mean. Do you live in some other country where it's not on preorder yet?

    Is there a way to get the International version in Canada? I do not want the Rogers phone mainly because lack of colours it has. I would really like to pre-order one.

    AT&T is taking pre-orders today as well. Site is currently down until 5pm CT, after which online chat sales says you can pre-order.

    They'd never do this to apple preorders....how annoying

    Some UK sites do but I think the color choice is also limited. I hear carphonewarehouse.com will have them but not yet.

    Then again Apple products don't usually open preorders on a Sunday.

    As mentioned by Palandri, I am from Finland.

    Naturally the irony here is that Nokia is from Finland, but we are the last in line cos we are such a small market. Even all other nordic countries (Denmark, Norway, Sweden) have gotten their ballpark figures of availability and pricing, but we have had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. And that's not exaggeration, absolutely nothing!

    But in that sense fast availability on other markets is more important anyways, as Nokias position and success in Finland is a given.

    I assumed Nokia just gave the finnish free phones at parades or something.

    From what I have read I would say you are incorrect. AFAIK only EE will be selling the 920 in the UK.

    You can order an unlocked 920 here:

    Nokia Lumia 920 (3G 850/1900 MHz AT&T) Smartphone Black Unlocked Import at MobileCityOnline.com

    Always check sites like Amazon, eBay, NewEgg... etc... for pricing because it varies.

    That's nice. I was not expecting below 199 price, neither was i expecting Lumia 920 to cost the same as HTC 8X without contract.

    lol, ATT rep just told me he wasnt taking pre-orders and that the phone just isnt popular enough to do that, they would just have them available when they are available and he dosnt know the date. Pre-order response is probably not accurate, but I am getting a little annoyed that know one knows a available date, even best buys site says ships when available...this is getting really lame.

    Well the 21st preorder date was correct. So I would bet the Nov 4th date is as well.

    I've never pre-ordered through BestBuy and I'm kinda hesitant because I do not want my current unlimited data to get screwed up.

    On the Bestbuy preorder their is a choice to keep your current plan the same and you don't have to choose a new one.

    That isn't for data though. But judging by the fact that it offered me the chance to keep my old data rate that no longer exists, I am assuming it does the same thing for unlimited.

    I opted to pay $10 more for 3gb though.

    Is there any reason to wait for ATT to have preorders? Do you guys think best buy will get the phone to us as fast as att on the 2nd or the 4th etc? Never purchased a phone from BB before.

    You should get the phone the same time assuming you don't order it way late and it gets more than a 2 week backorder.

    The real advantage is that it's typically cheaper unactivated from the carrier themselves.
