I went into my EE store, bought it on Orange PAYG, called up Orange, number ported from my Pay monthly big sim to the micro sim in 4 hours.
I know its going to sound daft but I've now heard 4 instances of it, when you buy it on PAYG, what network are you asking it on? T-Mobile or Orange?

The white 920 is locked to EE and shoudnt work on other networks I believe.
One thing I spotted was EE offer unlocking here: http://e-gain.s3.amazonaws.com/exter..._2012%20v4.pdf I wonder if they would unlock the white for you given the hassle you have had.

Glad you finally got sorted OP :)
To be honest EE have been pretty shocking over the L920 - after weeks of dropping into their stores and getting wildly conflicting information when they actually did have them it didn't go any better - firstly I had to wait 20 minutes to be seen to then, when I did get to talk to someone he went through all the security rigmarole to get my account details (existing Orange customer upgrading) and get my usage so he could "tailor a package". He then read out my average bill and usage and using those details (900mins a month, 800 texts and 11Mb data) decided that somehow the 500mb data plan I was already on was insufficent. Checking my details was all a waste of time anyway since he said he could only do the phone on the fixed packages they were offering which was £41 a month on Orange and £40 up front or £36 a month and £129.99 for the phone on EE (so much for "tailoring") so I sacked them off and went round the corner to Phones4U who couldn't have been more helpful. They did me the exact same plan as the £41pcm that I was offered in EE for £36 a month and the phone for free, oh and a free wireless charger. In the past I've avoided P4U (largely down to their incredibly annoying ad campaigns more than anything) but I honestly can't fault them on this experience. Not sure on the situation of locked vs unlocked but mine is a white one using an Orange SIM if that's any use.

Would be really interested to hear how you get on.
