    Hi,

    i got my current black L920 on Satruday from P4U shop for 459 but my battery life is getting worse 6-7 hours max. So i'm thinking of returning the phone to P4U and at the same time buy it from EE. Save me 60.

    Is it true that EE are doing the L920 for 399 PAYG? if so, do i have to get one from a store Or can i order one online? Went to a couple of LEEDS EE shop but they had no clue.

    thanks

    I bought mine PAYG on Orange to use with a T-Mobile sim and it works. A Virgin sim would work too. They also gave me the free wireless charger and some headphones, so make sure you get these as well!

    Im gonna try this out in manchester tonight after work an see how I get on.

    I'll let you know if i'm successful or not.

    Any idea if they are advertising about the free charger and headphones in store or online or is it a 'surprise' when you buy the phone? I'd like something to fall back on if they try to deny me them!

    I wonder why this 399 price is not advertised anywhere on any of the EE websites. Fail :/

    The lady wasn't sure about the free wireless charger, so checked (I presume) an internal email which stated that it came free with all new connections. She then said that as this was a new connection I would get the charger.

    The free headphones are advertised by various posters instore. They are free with any PAYG phone over 50.

    And for anyone still in doubt, I am currently using mine with a T-Mobile sim when it was sold as an Orange PAYG phone. It definitely 100% works. :)

    When I bought mine in Tunbridge Wells, they said that they could sell the contract phones on Orange as PAYG, yet other stores told me they could only sell them on contract alone. Some stores only had the contract prices on the display and other had the PAYG price on display as well.

    It must be to do with commission or targets they need to meet.

    So operation 'buy a lumia 920' was a total failure!

    Of the six, yes six!!, EE shops I went into none of them had any non-contract lumias to sell.
    Oh well looks like I'm stuck waiting for the EE 'express' delivery service to turn up!

    The lumia 940 will be out by the time I get my hands on this one.

    Apologies for my failures

    I find it unbelievable t-mobile/orange/EE are stocking shops over selling these to customers who have ordered online or through customer services.

    I know of several people who have gone into a shop to get one and cancelled their online order.

    I was sorely tempted to do this tonight but I simply cant justify paying 160 for the phone upfront when I only paid 20 for it on my pre-order.

    Had a little play with a white 920 in one of the shops, this made it even harder to resist the temptation to buy it there and then!

    t-mobile can't even give an estimated date. Pretty annoying when some people have had them from phones4u ON T-MOBILE for a week now. :@

    guess what, EE dont have any L920 left on 'Orange' at the moment for them to sell me it for 399.

    someone help me here please,

    found a store that has an orange L920 for 399 but are clueless about the free charger that comes with it. Do you usually get that from the store or is it ordered online once you have the phone?

    what do i do

    Just got a 'Stock Update' sms off EE which states:

    "Hi from EE. Just to let you know we haven't forgotten about your new phone. We'll be in touch soon to let you know when it's on the way. Thanks for your patience."

    Light at the end of the tunnel or a false dawn?

    I was 90% sure I was gonna cancel my pre-order and buy one on contract in town tonight, now I dont know what to do!

    Anyone in the same situation?
    What you gonna do?

    I can confirm I picked up an Orange PAYG 399 (+10 topup) Lumia 920 from an EE store on Monday. The following SIM cards all work with my handset: Orange, T-Mobile, Virgin.

    I also got a free wireless charger and free headphones (free with any Orange PAYG handset over 50). The store i visited only had a single PAYG Lumia 920 in stock, and the other EE stores i phoned didn't have any.
