Hey guys. I'm after a 920, but all the places I'm seeing selling unlocked 920s are over 500 (which is more than what I paid for my HTC TITAN!) but I am wanting to get it. Has anyone found any cheaper places that are selling the phone for about 450? I need it to be new so I can insure it with ProtectYourBubble. As per their main exclusions page.Originally Posted by ProtectYourBubble

My thinking is in alignment with yours, waiting for it to become available at CPW although I'm sure you're aware P4U already have it at 459.
Do you therefore think once it becomes more widely available the price may be diluted slightly? That's pretty much the sole reason I'm holding fire.

There are currently 2 places to get it unlocked, Clove (520) and Expansys (555), that's what the current going rate is because of exclusivity and short supply.
Exclusivity will end shortly, but I still doubt you'll be able to get them that easily for less than 450.

You can buy it locked to EE, and they will supposedly unlock it after 3 months of you using their service but I don't know what the success rate is on this (it's only as per their word afaik).
I don't know what the situation would be with regard P4U insurance, but I do know that I certainly wouldn't take what the salesperson said about it at face value. Likelihood is that if they replaced it, it would be a like for like EE locked replacement.
My phone is being insured under my current account through Barclays. That might also be something for you to look into.

I was lucky and found out about the 20% pre-Christmas discount from EE stores. I got my Lumia 920 for 329 + 35 unlock fee. A veritable bargain :-)

If you buy an Orange PAYG Lumia 920 from EE and get it unlocked you will end up paying around 100 less than buying an 'unlocked' version from Clove. EE is still doing a free wireless charger too, adding in another 50 of value. That saving would pay for four unlock codes should you be that unfortunate. After a second loss and insurance payout I doubt whether they would fund a third anyway, lol!
My phone is covered under my home insurance contents policy - isn't yours?

The Orange phone is not branded as such - no decals, nothing obvious on screen, only if you dig into 'about' in settings will you see reference to EE. You can flash it with the generic UK software and these references will disappear. Nothing to worry about.

I have my 3 SIM in the phone - and I find 3 CS excellent :-) Always get someone who knows their stuff and can actually help. I've been with all the networks and 3 is the best!

After spending 46 minutes on the phone to Three (at least 20 of those were spent on hold, another 15 was spent with the rep arguing with me about why I shouldn't be getting a PAC code and it'd be cheaper to get it unlocked, when I wanted the PAC code), finally got my PAC code, moved to T-Mobile for The Full Monty at 26/mth on a one-month rolling contract. And now got my Nokia Lumia 920. Solved. Closing thread.
