Just wondering whether AT&T keeps locking the 920 purchased at the full retailed price is correct or not. As I chose to purchase it at full price, it means I didn't get any benefit from AT&T, why does AT&T still have the power to lock my phone to their own network to kill my rights for choice?

Why would it be illegal, it is their branded phone which means they can have it locked for their services only especially when they have 6-month exclusivity. If you want an unlocked phone, go get one from another retailer that is unbranded.
The benefit of you paying full price is that you are not stuck with a contrat and can cancel at any point. Also at some point, you will be able to unlock through ATT or a 3rd party.

After what Duvi said, I decided to search around I found this:
How to Unlock Nokia Lumia 920 Cell Phone by Unlock Code - CellPhoneUnlock.net
I have no idea if this is legitimate or not however, but if it is...I think I might just bite.

The day 6months after it became available they will unlock it. They are allowed to wait 6 months with an exclusivity deal such as this according to a California court ruling.

The AT&T rep at my corporate store said they will give you an unlock code in 3 situations:
1. You buy it for the full price up front, get an unlock code that day
2. You finish out a 2-year agreement
3. You pay early termination to get out ofa 3 year agreement
