    Hello,
    does anyone have any indicator on the availability of a dual sim XL version within Europe.
    Can find one in Microsoft India store but the UK and GER and FR Store doesn't list one:(

    Looked at the French store and funny enough, the header doesn't specify it but the specification says double nano sim... 👀 So is this standard for France?

    Either I didn't look on the right spot or they corrected it today but there's now two distinct 950XL: single and double sim...

    Yeah, Fnac.pt is selling both the 950 Dual Sim and the 950 XL Dual Sim (150 less than the original price). Is there a price variation from non-Dual Sim versions?

    Resellers in Denmark have been told by Microsoft that only the Lumia 950 (not XL) will be available in Denmark in a Dual Sim variant.

    Looks like Poland and Portugal are getting the Lumia 950 XL Dual Sim though.

    Do they not know that we can buy anything from anywhere? Ebay vendors will ship the phone you want to you anywhere.

    Hmm. I don't have a Microsoft store in my country, so can i for example order a new Lumia phone from german store or any other MS store here in Europe? Will they ship and has anyone ever tried this?

    Thanks guys :)

    Why wouldn't you be able to? Obviously you need to check a few basics like radio frequencies for mobile, though most of Europe use the same system. I used to buy my notes from Poland, hell of a lot cheaper! You would need to look at the warranty side as well, although again, shouldn't be an issue in Europe where I do believe the warranty under EU law should be 2 yrs.

    Grab one and enjoy!!

    Thanks for the reply. Helps clear some things out. Ok i think frequencies are mostly the same across europe and warranty is 2 years like you said. So basicly i'll just check to see where i can find it cheaper, and maybe even fetch a free continuum with it :) So they do ship across europe right? Straight from the MS store...

    Yes - straight from the MS Store. But the prices there are most likely more expensive than for example amazon.fr .. just order it from amazon.fr

    Yes. But beware you likely won't have warranty service in your country. That's how it is in the US. IMEIs are linked to a target market. I am buying my new 950XL from a US company but they are getting them from another country and there won't be a Microsoft Warranty in the US. That company includes their own equivalent warranty. Something to factor in if you buy from outside your country or even in your country depending on the retailer's source for the phones.

    Microsoft checked my Amazon.FR bought Lumia 535 and told me to get it replaced in the UK Nokia Care store. I believe the warranty is covering cross country at least EU

    I got my new 1520.3 from another market. There was a website where customers could check to see if their IMEI was covered in the US. The web site said mine was. And it said that for everyone else who bought a foreign market 1520. But if anyone sent their phone in, they received a letter saying, that was an error (they never fixed the error to my knowledge) and the phones were returned unrepaired. The EU MIGHT be considered one market but you might want to double check what a rep says or at least get it in writing.

    Everywhere I've asked, the answer has been that, as far as they know, only dual SIM variants will be available in Portugal.

    So is this site fnat.pt mentioned earlier legit? They have the cheapest lumia 950 xl in europe, 100€ below other prices. Has anyone ordered from them before?

    Of course it's legit, it's a huge, international chain that sells books, music, films and electronics.

    Has anyone actually had a single sim version? Maybe all XL's are dual sim as it's aimed as a Business phone?

    Just unboxed my German version and it is single sim only
    Was hoping it would be dual sim so much after I saw the US one's were these variants.

    FNAC is a Portuguese franchise store that sells electronics, books and other stuff.
    It's not international but it's pretty big here in Portugal.

    It's 100% legit, and the reason they aren't accepting your payments is because they do not ship internationally so they only accept our own "ATM system" payment.

    There's even a cheaper 950XL/950 for sale here in Portugal, on another franchise called Worten. They are selling it for 599€ Dual Sim which is even cheaper than Fnac.
