    I have never taken such a risk* before (it feels like it is) but frustrated by not being able to get an unlocked yellow Lumia 1520 on launch day here in the UK, I have resorted to eBay!

    I would have paid Carphone Warehouse 600 if they'd sold yellow ones from the get-go, so the price isn't that important personally but is 499 with free delivery (although I expect a 50 - 70 HM Customs charge). I paid via PayPal and to my surprise found 30 credit on there. So all in all, if the phone turns out to be perfect, I will be very happy.

    The seller is based in Hong Kong and called mobile-tone-uk with a 98.7% satisfaction rating out of 14,190 items of feedback.

    They estimate delivery between 4 and 6 December, although I would be surprised at that - although plenty of people leaving feedback praise the speedy delivery time.

    *will it somehow be a different spec from a genuine UK purchase? UK charger?

    Here is the link (more than 10 available if you're as brave/foolish as me!)

    I'll keep you posted!

    Unlocked mobiles state stock on the yellow on 18h december. Ive ordered with them.(no doubt stock wont arrive on that date i suspect)

    Personally i wouldn't order via ebay...especially from abroad, but im sure you will be fine as you paid via paypal.

    the only problem i see is if something goes wrong with it, as it wasn't bought in Europe I'm not sure if the warranty would be covered here? Or you have to send it back to be fixed......could take weeks!

    I am now the proud owner of a yellow Nokia Lumia 1520! :)

    It arrived yesterday and I have to say...so far, so good. Really speedy DHL delivery as only ordered it on Sunday. Customs charge was 55.

    Maybe I wasn't quite so crazy after all?

    Does the LTE bands for it work fine in the UK? Unfortunately we don't have the luxury of LTE with the international version in the US.
