    It's rumoured AT&T are paying for the exclusivity to lock out all the other players from selling the device. Then they can do whatever they please, promote it, set it in the corner with the others and focus on the iPhone and Galaxies as they always do day in and day out.

    To me it appears AT&T does not care about the phone, they just want to block everyone else from offering it which is more detrimental to the brand and to Nokia not to mention the customers.

    I'm in no hurry, I'll wait till it gets delivered throughout the market. I jumped on the 920 the first month and had issues after a couple months and had it serviced which they replaced it and that one had a few new user experience tweaks to it the original didn't.

    Overall, no need to rush, it's coming, just sit back and wait. Email AT&T and Nokia your annoyed feelings too. It may actually help for the next round of new releases.

    Agreed. I tell people I rock the 920 and they do the scrunchy frown look. I then mention I used to rock the iphone 4s and iTunes drove me insane and eBayed it. I have most of the apps for the functionality I used on the iPhone but the camera is the best in the market. It blows away anything I did with the iPhone and even compared it with a friends iphone 5 and still beats it in quality.

    The other person does the raised eyebrows look and nods and says hmm I takes pictures all the time ... Very cool ...

    I want to get my hands on the 1020! :)

    The rep at a Rogers store actually tried to talk me out of the Lumia when I asked to see it. So yeah, definitely not promoting WP.

    When I asked the rep. at bestbuy about Lumia 1020 he was like (Are you serious? Who cares about WP or Lumia?)

    How do we expect Nokia and WP will gain popularity in Canada when the reps. react like that?

    I've had the same experience at a Bell Store in Ottawa the guy wanted to talk to me about the S4 instead...! What I did was I tweeted Bell to inform them that he mention that WP8 was crap and Bell replied because they wanted the sale rep location work place and name...

    I recently switched to Koodo (as should all of you) and I have no idea what I'm gonna do, guess I'm looking at an import as well. You get the camera grip free with pre orders from the US Microsoft store, but that isn't much good to us. How are Windows phones for unlocking? It was really easy on my S3

    Well, the 925 is a 920 variant for T-Mobile (which would mean that Wind and Mobilicity could use it) and the 928 is a 920 variant for Verizon (so it wouldn't work with any Canadian carrier). The differences between the 920, 925, and 928 are minimal.

    At best it would have been nice for Bell and Telus to get the 920, and for Wind and Mobilicity to get the 925, or at least the 521.

    If Windows 8 and WP 8 really took off, Rogers et al would have more support for WP, but it didn't, so they have a built-in excuse for ignoring WP. That and the unwritten rule that it is their patriotic duty to back BB.

    I bought the 8x only because I was with Bell, but still I love it. Wish I had the 920, but you take the hand your dealt. My son's 520 has better apps and some features I wish I had lol.

    Spoke to a Rogers rep after reading above. He said they are currently testing it out, but are not announcing anything official. I hope that means Nokia is asking more from them in terms of marketing, accessories and support. I like Rogers for service, speed and my negotiated plan but their WP8 support has been poor.

    Try this website, that is how I unlocked my Rogers Lumia 920. It worked and costs me $15.00

    I really wish Bell would carry the Nokia line. I got the 8x, and overall I love it. But the lack of HTC support especially compared to Nokia definitely gets ya mad now and again!
    I honestly wouldn't buy an HTC phone. I don't find their support policy for their Android devices to be any good. It seems like HTC is in disarray right now. If I'm buying a Windows Phone, it's only going to be Nokia.

    I unlocked a Rogers Lumina 520 and it couldn't have been easier! Cost $20 and was done in a couple of hours. And nokias app to get your carrier set up right is really easy. No problems with picture messages or tethering.
    Mobileincanada.com (Bell, Fido, Rogers, Telus, Koodo, Virgin, Mobilicity, Wind, Videotron) that's the site I used

    I read here Should I ditch Android for Nokia's Lumia 1020? | Mobile - CNET News that Nokia needs the help of MS and ATT in order to market the phone, which is why they are exclusive to ATT in the US. Not sure if that's true, but it kind of made sense. There's some interesting stuff from interviews. I plan to buy an unlocked Rogers 920 now for use on Telus, and wait a bit to see what happens with the 1020. I'm sure I'll get one eventually. Since going W8.1 on laptop and tablet, I can't wait to get a W8 phone. Shocks me that they are so few and far between in North America...particularly in Canada. I've had telus reps say things like 'oh, my wife got windows 8 on her computer and she hated it and we put windows 7 back on.' REALLY??? I stopped asking about W8 phones as I know so much more than anyone in the phone stores where I live! Glad to find you folks :).

    I used to use the Samsung Focus with WP7.5, great phone, but when it was time to switch phones only the Nokia 920 was available from Rogers in black. I was tempted but I wanted a slim lighter phone ... so I bought the HTC One and while it's a great phone in most respects ... it's Android and it frankly takes longer to get stuff done that I do everyday. Then the 1020 was released and I'm definitely going to sell my HTC One and get the 1020 when it comes to Rogers in Canada. I'm thinking of picking it up in the US and bringing it across because I'm an early adopter ... but maybe I'll wait a couple of months first. If anybody wants to buy my HTC One let me know.

    Mobile Syrup said the 1020 will be coming at a later date. Also the windowsphone.ca site no longer has the 920 as their list of phones on the site. I'm hoping it's to make room for the 1020.

    None of the carriers even picked up the 925.

    Maybe the rumors are true that the Canadian carriers are trying hard to push BB as the #3 and neglecting WP in the process.
    Why would the 925 come to Canada? It's a CDMA phone. We've evolved. The only carrier doing it is Koodo.

    The 925 is GSM. The 928 is CDMA.

    I have a feeling the Lumia 1020 won't be released in Canada until Q3 of 2013 at the earliest.
