    Has anyone heard from Argos? I'm thinking of cancelling my order and going to my local Car Phone Warehouse as I'm not convinced I'll receive my phone on Monday
    This was the last communication I had, via Twitter, with Argos "James, The original text you received should have an anticipated dispatch date noted on it, Your phone will be dispatched directly from the suppliers once the issue has been rectified, we have not yet received an adjusted dispatch date as our suppliers work office hours and are regrettably closed at the weekend, As you have received the original text , any update should be notified to you directly via text. Apologies that I am unable to advise further at this stage."

    Apart from the fact that the "original text" they refer to is one that said delivery, not dispatch, would be "by the 06/12" this seems to be telling me to wait and see.

    As I've already said, p***-up, meet brewery.

    Will wait to see what happens tomorrow then. I guess I've been using my Lumia 920 since release day here in the UK (over 3 years) so waiting another few days isn't going to do any harm. If I don't hear anything tomorrow though I'll certainly be considering going elsewhere and cancelling my order.

    I have 640 XL my friend. Very good device. But the problem for me is APPS. I wanna buy Lumia 950 XL but again developers F... Microsoft ecosystem. :(
    Support android or iOS.
    I have and second phone OnePlus 2 64gb BUT again i prefer Windows mobile ecosystem but without applications 950 xl is over for me.
    WHY DEVELOPERS HATE this amazing mobile OS (windows mobile 10) guys????????
    this ecosystem will only grow once Google bring its apps to us! reason lots of android lovers will start trying as they cannot leave Google ecosystem now. As of now its only we the Microsoft ecosystem guys r here!

    So annoyed! I originally ordered from Carphone Warehouse. Saw that Argos was delivering much earlier, so cancelled my order with CPW to go to Argos, and now CPW is despatching faster than Argos. I still haven't received a refund from CPW, my account is in 'credit' and I need to phone them up to arrange a refund, despite not giving me any reference number at all, and on top of me phoning up to cancel and them not finding my order, so I had to go in store to ask for a refund. What a freaking nightmare!

    They didn't even tell me I had credit or anything in store, they just said it was cancelled. I had to email them asking what will happen with the money. Absolute nightmare, wouldn't order from Argos or CPW again for a pre-order..

    Ordered a 950 and 950XL. The bigger one is going to me! My wife's 950 is coming in tomorrow (8th of December), but the 950XL wasn't on stock anymore and I'll have to wait for it till 20th of January....I can't stand the suspense!

    You just need to phone them up and ask for them to cancel it. You'll get refunded in about a week. The hardest part is actually waiting to speak to someone.

    I now notice that Argos are saying 'out of stock' on their website. I don't want to sound cynical but I'm wondering if they've been merrily taking orders based on what stock they think they'll be receiving and now they have none for whatever reason. What is the legality behind offering something and taking money on the belief you may have the stock to be able to sell it at some point in the future?

    I'm inclined to agree with you, and Argos have handled it terribly. I've been phoning them and Exertis (the supplier) today, and they basically said that they still don't have the stock, didn't know when to expect it, and would just contact when it's in.
    I'm especially annoyed because I had a preorder with carphone warehouse too, which I cancelled. And even though they've delayed, at least they're sending units out!

    Just been into local Argos to experiment with ordering in person. Interestingly enough, when you type in the catalogue code for either colour 950xl it tells you to order your shiny new 550 at the counter.

    Argos have clearly lied based on projected stock and now don't have a clue what to do about it.

    Amazon pre-orders have now shifted to 20th December.

    I spoke to Argos and demanded a refund. They have to wait for the supplier first.

    I have ordered from CPW now. Hoping it will arrive tomorrow.
