    hope Three release it tomorrow as well, tweeted them about it and they mentioned preorder info would be up tomorrow.
    The 64Gig varient is exclusive to O2 ;), confirmed by Nokia.

    My pre-order is done!!

    I also went with O2 Refresh, with 8GB data on 4G. Not bad as the 4G only appears to be 5 more per month (comparing the prices of the two 1GB O2 Refresh tariffs), so with the 30% discount on the airtime portion of the airtime plan (ie excl data) it more than cancels out the 5 4G surcharge.

    Does anyone know if O2 will be doing the 1020 on PAYG? I'm not seeing an option on the site and I'd rather not be tied to them for 24 months!

    Well I've decided to pre-order the 1020 for myself with Clove. Couldn't resist with all the free extra's.

    Whelp.... I'm skint for awhile.

    Does anyone know if the 1020 on O2 sold via Carphonewarehouse will be the 64gb version or just the 32gb one? Their website lists its specs as being the lower storage device, but I'm hoping it's a mistake as their prices are much more affordable than direct from O2 (plus you still get the amazing bundle of goodies!)

    Cheers

    I suspect all other non-O2 stores will have the 32GB model. Including stores selling the 1020 for O2.

    the 64GB is a way of attracting customers to go direct to O2 (or equivalent local Telefonica network)

    Ok. I'm looking at O2 deals.
    I don't need more than 600 mins and some data...
    Best I can find is:
    1) 3g, 600 mins, 750MB = 12/month
    2) Refresh contract = 99 now + 480 (24X15) = 579
    3) Plus cashback of around 50 from quidco/topcashback for a new contract.
    So basically 529 for handset (+ accesssories), and 12/month for 600 mins and poorish data.
    Anyone care to suggest how they've done better?

    You're more than likely correct. I honestly don't see how 32gb will be enough. I've got around 7gb left on my 920, and there's only a handful of games and albums on there. I don't want to be frequently transferring large pic files manually to my PC. If MS/Nokia allow the 38MP files to be transferred to skydrive then maybe that'll mean the standard storage size will be enough for someone as lazy as me.

    32GB will not be enough for sustained usage of the phone. My 920 has been full for a few months now and I'm constantly having to think about space management. I've had to uninstall Modern Combat 4 to reclaim 1.6GBs back and most of that space has been used now....and this is with the GDR2 other storage 'fix'. I like to have quite a few apps/games/music and photos on my phone and I'm sure that I'm not alone in that. I've had to compromise by uploading all the photos that were taken on my 808, N8 and previous to SkyDrive that I want to have handy. I've uploaded all my music too but until there's a viable SkyDrive music app that has all the features I need, they're just gathering SkyDrive dust.

    With 2 copies of each photo being saved (I'm aware that setting can be changed), the 1020 is going to fill up extremely fast and I've got a feeling that many people are going to find it quite inconvenient to think about constant compromises.

    I just don't understand why MS/Nokia didn't make the 64GB model default or at least add expandable memory support. The 64GB model would be perfect for me but I will have to get the 32GB or perhaps wait a while to see if the 64GB gets a general release or if its successor has improved memory.

    Decisions, decisions!!

    That said, I'm still very excited at the prospect of getting a 1020. I really miss being able to take the spectacular kind of photos that I captured on my 808. I hope I have enough money put by in order to take advantage of the pre-order deals as the accessory bundles being thrown in are very generous.

    Any donations will be gratefully accepted :)

    Just to check - on O2 refresh, once you have paid off the phone, can you cancel the airtime contract, or is the airtime contract 24 months? E.g. if I paid the 640 for the phone, could I in theory cancel the airtime contract after the first month?

    You can pay for the phone within 14 days and the contract will be cancelled. I did this with Lumia 925 and thinking of doing this again with Lumia 1020.

    Could you expand on this i.e. the steps you took to achieve this? I'm considering the deal on Clove but I think an extra 60 plus a 15 unlock fee is worth it for a 64GB model.

    You could wait for a few days am pretty sure they'll start popping up on ebay and gumtree in no time!

    Thanks! Quite tempted to do this, since it doesn't look like they'll be offering the 1020 on PAYG for the moment.

    This is what I would do to get the Lumia 1020 from O2:

    1, Go via Quidco (50 cash back at the moment)

    2. Select the 3G tariff (600mins, unlimited texts, 750mb data) at 12.00 a month

    3. Pay 99 up front for the phone, leaving 20 a month over 24 months

    4. When you receive the phone fill this form in to get it unlocked free: http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=730jcGnH

    5. Then call O2 customer support within 7 days to cancel your airtime contract and at this point they will ask you to pay remaining of the phone contract (20 * 24) by credit or debit card

    If everything goes well you should have an unlocked 64MB Lumia 1020 ( with accessories) for 530

    If you do this within the next couple of days report back on how it went; I would love to take advantage of this but I don't want to be stuck with two phone contracts if something goes wrong!

    The O2 offer is valid until 25th. 24 hours later Nokia launch the 1520: Nokia's 6-inch Lumia 1520 reportedly launching on September 26th | The Verge
    which is surely of interest to potential 1020 owners.

    I suspect I'll be doing an order as close as possible to the deadline and doing a cooloff if the 1520 grabs me.

    ALSO:
    If the refresh works to plan, you could get an even cheaper deal by selecting either of the top two plans (22 or 27 month). Then you'll pay:
    89.99 + (24x20) - 50 = 520

    Guess it depends on whether you get wacked for the 1st month of your contract. In which case, on 22 it'll work out the same). Worth the gamble. Mixed reports of people actually getting charged for it.

    I'm sure the 1520 will be great, but that size of phone doesn't really appeal to me. Also with the length of time it took the 1020 to come to the UK after the US launch, I wouldn't be too surprised if it didn't launch here till early 2014.

    By the way - with the free accessories, do you think they'll come with the phone, or is it more likely that we'll have to redeem these from Nokia afterwards?

    Just so you're aware, I just got an email from O2 about the dispatch of my 64GB Nokia Lumia 1020. Expected delivery is 3-5 business days (so, I should get it before the official 25 Sep UK release date).

    EDIT: Parcel No is coming up on UK Mail as invalid, so i'm trying to find out from the when delivery is expected so that I can take the day of work to be home and receive it (at least that's my excuse lol). I'll let you know what they say.

    I've had an email from O2 as well. They're saying that my 1020 is on its way and delivery is due tomorrow. It's coming via UK Mail and the tracking number shows it as collected. I'll post back if it actually arrives.

    I did call O2 and the advisor wasn't sure why it was being sent before the release date. Fingers crossed.

    Ii was also initially told tomorrow (24 hours).

    They later said delivery 25th as that's when the device is available. I however find it hard to believe they'd dispatch it today for delivery 25th (considering their email says 3-5 days).

    Where did you enter your order number on UK Mail's website? as a Consignment Number, or Reference Number? I've tried both, but both are coming up as invalid.

    I raised this with O2, who said it'll only be visible on UK Mail once I get a text from O2 about dispatch (which I find odd as I got an email confirming dispatch and parcel number). Did you get a text?

    I did call O2 and the advisor wasn't sure why it was being sent before the release date. Fingers crossed.
    I think i'll give them a call to talk to a British person "voice-to-voice" (the guy support guy on O2 Chat was Indian)
