Last week I checked Negri Electronics and the phone was 698 US Dollars. Now, it's 775 for the black one and 730 for the grey one.
I do not find that very reputable.
Any other places to get it?
Will the Microsoft stores get unlocked/unbranded Lumias?
I refuse to buy it for almost 900 US Dollars from a dude on Ebay.
I am getting kinda desperate. (I need me my gadgets)

My parents are going on a trip to Ft. Lauderdale on November 22nd, I plan to have the phone shipped to their hotel so I don't have to pay some crazy taxes and tariffs in my country (The country with the most international economic/trade agreements in the world).
Yeah, it sucks. But I may be getting this phone in less than a month :)
But I think I need to order it on the 18th at the most, so everything is kewl.

It's kind of tough right now since the phone isn't widely distributed yet.
If you are still planning on have it delivered to your parents are in Florida, keep checking eBay, Amazon, MobileCityOnline. That's all I can suggest at this point in time.
Good luck to you.

Is the unlocked Rogers 920 phone truly "unlocked"? Can I insert any sim card like one from T-Mobile and it will just work?
Negri doesn't specify the available date. That's the thing driving me crazy. I want an unlocked 920 and I can't wait any longer... In fact I just posted that I ordered an Galaxy Note II instead. But once the 920 especially the 1700 unlocked model becomes available at reasonable price (<=$650) I'll either sell the NoteII or give it to my wife and just get myself a 920.
--- sorry just saw that Negri listed Rogers 920 to be available on Nov 6. Don't whether they can actually ship by that date.

Yeah, I guess the best deal right now would be to get it from Negri.
Has anyone ordered anything from them?
They appear to have good reputation, but since I will be ordering two 920s (me and my wife) I want to know I'm spending 1500 dollars somewhere trustworthy.

I don't know that would say Negri isn't reputable because they raised the price. The other sites I've had my eye on that sell Lumia 920s have done the same thing. GSM Nation, for instance. They had them listed at $699 two days ago, now they're listed at $799.
Maybe wait another couple of weeks and see how much Amazon is selling them for?

ResellerRating is a good place to check online retailers
Negri Electronics Reviews - negrielectronics.com Ratings at ResellerRatings
Gsm Nation Reviews - gsmnation.com Ratings at ResellerRatings
GSM Nation has a real good rating. Negri seems ok.

i sat and looked at the 3 different types of Lumia 920 on the Negri site and couldnt really tell for sure if the "unlocked" rogers would be able to work on any 3G or enhanced 3G networks when on an ATT sim in the US.
really quite a good choice though...
and for those wondering - i have heard engadget mention on their mobile podcasts the negri website and how they sometimes provide them review units.

Yeah, I guess I'll wait. Not having an international warranty also makes me a sad panda.
So I have no crappy idea what I am supposed to do. I need me my Lumia.
Friggin' iPhone 4S. If I made a little bit more money, I don't know... 25-30% more, I would take my 4S and break it agains a wall, run it over with my car, pee on it.... damn, light it up with some gasoline.
BREAK that piece of boring, stale doodoo.
