no white ones ANYWHERE in the tiny tiny city of los angeles. what a **** poor launch.
i was at the los angeles microsoft store today though, and they said they were going to have some black white and red ones in tomorrow. so if the att store doesn't have any when i call them tomorrow, the msft store will be my last hope of getting the phone on launch day. :\

After saying they'd be in today, both Microsoft Stores in my area this morning say they don't have any in and they don't know when they will :@. I'll check back later today. Glad I didn't miss any work to drive there at 10 a.m. Best Buy meanwhile only has black.

The AT&T stores in my area, Huntsville, Alabama, only have black, red, and white. There were five people waiting at the door for one when the store opened.
I've since searched AT&T's inventory online, and I'm not seeing any cyans anywhere in Alabama, Atlanta or Nashville.
Best buy doesn't have any at all.
Looks like I'm going to have to order one. :\
In other news, the weight objections to this thing are possibly the most overblown thing in the history of tech reporting. Its not a feather like the iphone 5, but its plenty light.

Local store, only black. Another nearby town has red and black. No line but this store is never busy anyway.
The rep was really trying but just didn't know anything about it. He kept trying to pull up info and I was like "dude, I know what it does" and rattled off some features. I think I trained him? :P
Someone did call about the phone while I was checking it out though. It's sexy. Feels solid and built well. Just a bit longer to wait and hopefully I can get my beloved red. :)
Side note though, the reps all had Windows 8 shirts on. I even asked if they were selling Win8 devices and he said "yes, it came out today" /facepalm. haha

I went to the AT&T store this morning at the Pentagon City mall and found that they just had black ones in stock. I am looking for a Red lumia and they asked me to check with Microsoft Stores in the same mall and they did have red. Unfortunately, there was an issue and the MS store said they will not be able to activate my phone at that point in time. So, I offered to come back later in the evening and pick it up and they said they would hold that one for me. But there were no lines or anything. AT&T and the MS store were kinda empty except for me and couple of other guys.
I checked with the MS store if they'd give me the free charger as AT&T is doing so, they said they won't be giving me one :(. So, I'll try and go to other AT&T stores here in the city to check if they have a red one and if they don't, I'll have to give up on the free charger and buy it from MS store.

*UPDATE: Did you go in there just to preorder it or something? I just called them yet again and they insisted they don't have any Lumia 920s in! I don't know what's going on but this launch has been nothing short of ridiculous.

EDIT: Infact, a guy who looked like the store manager said that would be the first one they're going to sell. Also, he got a call from someone else asking for the yellow one and he had to check with a different person who said "The yellow ones will be in only after a week and half". So, if any of you want to buy the yellow one in store, it might be here in a week's time.

When to the Downtown Brooklyn AT&T on Fulton St. They said they should have them in by 3pm.
Supposedly they'll have Cyan :-D
But they said I still have to get a plan even if I buy it off-contract :-(

Still hoping for a minor miracle later today at either that store or the Tysons Corner one. I want my yellow damn it :blush:. I'm glad you mentioned the part about their yellow stock at least, this way I won't have my hopes up that they'll get yellow when their supposed shipment comes in later today (like they told me they would).

Again, fresh off the phone with my local AT&T Corporate store... spoke with a rep and informed him of the prior conversation I had with another rep on Wednesday. He said they couldn't hold a device on launch day... maybe after a few weeks. He then put me at ease by telling me they received a great deal of the black 920's. He then went on to say they HAD set one aside for me, but of they have a run on them, and a customer comes in for the last one, he would have to release it. No big deal. The odds of that happening are slim. He also said they would order me a wireless charger and have it shipped to me, as they do not have ANY in stock for the free giveaway. So, 6pm cannot get here fast enough!
