    Ordered mine yesterday, had the email to confirm I passed credit check etc but not delivery email. Have been told it will be sent royal mail first class recorded so if it's sent today might get it any time between Sat - Wed (although phones4u told me up to the 19th just in case - you know what the royal mail is like).

    However I just got a call from one of the Cardiff Phones4U stores to say that they have them in right now so if you really want one now pop to your local store or call them chances are they have them in!!

    Given I ordered mine on the 31st I would be rather annoyed if yours got shipped before mine ;)

    Did you order yours on EE? I refuse to go with them (only 512mb data for so much money!) so had to wait. I'll keep you updated with my delivery email, if it is shipped before yours then definitely complain!

    Hope I get the free speaker but probably not as I couldn't pre-order on Orange. At least everyone gets the free wireless charger which is cool! I want that more than the speaker anyway

    I ordered mine on EE, still waiting for a shipping/delivery email.

    EE's contracts may seem extortionate but if you managed to pre-order the phone on a twelve month contract for just 19.99 upfront then you're on to a winner in my opinion!!

    Proud to say I just got a Sim-Free. I was told I'm the only one in my city to have it off contract. I was slightly disappointed to learn it's locked to EE, T-Mobile and Orange but I'm working on that one...

    Update: Just got off the phone from Orange and they are telling me that I must use my PAYG sim for 3 months and then I will be able to put in a request to unlock the phone for a charge of 20.42 and it will take 20 working days to generate the code.

    Looks like I'll have to try elsewhere.

    I have an Orange PAYG SIM that I used a few months ago and has lain dormant since, wonder if they'd let me unlock a 920 on the basis of that....

    If its been 'paired' with the device for over 3 months sure you can start the process - it's the same cost and i was told it will take 20 working days.

    I've checked around Bristol and they are definitely getting them in tomorrow so I'm praying to pick one up sim free. However, going by this it does in fact look like they are in fact locked then. Has anyone managed to unlock their handset using any websites that offer unlock codes? If so, who did you go to and how much was it?

    He he, I got my black Lumia 920 at 11am from the big PHones4U in Oxford St :-) I think I was one of the first, as about 20 mins later, whilst I was still sorting out my upgrade contract, about 3 other people came in asking for the 920.

    I managed to bag a Black 920 on EE4G, even though they were selling white at EE4G, and black as 3G only.

    Also got a Nokia voucher for a free wireless charger :-) Though I did have to go to another Phones4U to find out about that.

    I got the red one in Edinburgh from Phones4U. Signed up for a 2 year EE contract with 3GB even though I still have 11 months to go on my iPhone 4S contract.. Unfortunately EE was not able to activate in or whatever (sim card invalid) and after shocking conversation with EE support ("Nokia Lumia 920 doesnt work with EE's 4G cards. It's a known issue. Nothing we can do at the moment.") i terminated the whole thing and requested a refund..
    Ideas?
