    Now that is an awesome color! Wonder why ATT isn't getting this color as this one would sell like crazy. Now I'm going to have to find this one unlocked and have shipped to the US

    Same price as AT&T no commitment price $449.99? And with the same radio frequencies as AT&T GSM network! If that is true; I will buy!

    Just went to Welectronic site and it is listed at $649.99 and they do not have a way to select the color of the smartphone either.

    If they match the AT&T price and have the same specs; I will buy one!

    Same frequencies as AT&T network, but remember its unlocked so its a bit more expensive $661.

    Also even though you buy the 920 from AT&T at the no commitment price, that device is still locked to AT&T.

    The 920s that AT&T is selling at the no commitment price is not unlocked.

    Yes they are importing them from Europe. That's the only way to get one. Was looking at this video on youtube and the grey one sure does look very sexy and unique. I am thinking about switching from black to grey. My order hasnt shipped yet.

    I just read a blib that the slate grey is not offered in the U.S. yet! AT&T decided to past on the slate grey color is the rumor! AT&T wanted to have more flashy colors to get the younger crowd! What is AT&T thinking?? Corporate and more conservative buyers matter too; they are the ones that have the $$$$$$$$$$!

    The $449.99 is an unlocked AT&T Lumia 920! That was confirm at the local AT&T and seveal articles telling about the offer! Plus, you get a free charger too!

    Go do a Google or Yahoo search and type in:

    That is incorrect my friend. The device is still locked to AT&T. You could never buy an unlocked Lumia 920 for $449.99 , impossible.

    The grey color will not be offered by any carriers in the United States. If you want it you will have to buy from a store that imports unlocked phones.

    I will check in more detail on this but my feeling since it is AT&T is that you are right! Just makes business sense to rope the individual thinking he has a "no commitment" and bang he buys the phone and it is locked!

    I might wait to see if Overseas has a black friday pricing if they do not meet the AT&T price. I just not going to go crazy and add $200 more for just it being unlocked since it cost about $10-$20 for a code to unlock it!

    I will just let it play out! Thanks for the info on Overseas Electronics! I may just get another iPhone after all! iPhone5 for $749 does not look that bad of a deal with 32GB after all!

    overseas has the cheapest price i've seen so far, thanks for that!
    I just placed an order for an unlocked white 920.

    In retrospect I should've just waited to see if they had a deal for black friday/cyber monday... Oh well.

    Its not that its just 200 more just because its unlocked, an unlocked device comes with various benefits that you wouldn't get with a standard carrier version of the phone.

    Been there for entire week. Well they said they need to put pre-order price high because they don't really know what the retail price should be and they don't want to collect more money if the price is much higher than expected. If you take a look at Ebay, sellers are selling these at more than $800, and we don't even know if they will refund the price different or not, but Negri will refund in the case of retail price is lower like they did with the AT&T model.

    Spincel, that last tidbit about refunding lower price is really nice to know. I've locked in a $720 grey pre-order and I'm hoping the actual retail comes in a little lower.

    649.99 USD. Refer above for link.

    I just noticed that Overseas posted an unboxing video on youtube. The L920 in the video is from AT&T. I'm actually worried now. I made the purchase [but the funds haven't transfered yet]. Hopefully someone will get theirs before mine to confirm if the "unlocked L920" is branded or not.
    Because at 649.99 Unlocked and branded by AT&T... I would just go to negrielectronics and get it for nearly 200 bucks less.

    so both version from negri and overseas electronic are imported from Europe?
    and are they able to receive the tmo frequencies?

    which one is a better choice? imported one or roger?
