    Although the 1520 has been quietly discontinued with a contract on Vodafone, it is still available off-contract in the UK but it only takes a Vodafone nano SIM. Its downfall IMHO, was again the exclusivity with one carrier. I'm more curious to know why the non-availability of one model means jumping ship to iOS or Android when you have other options? My choice would be the 930 which is what I have and I was a primary 8X user too.

    Servers Direct also has CV GB 1520 in stock around for 325 (plus p+p).

    Edit - And if you want it on contract, Amazon are selling it on the O2 network

    Would like it to be 32gb, unlocked off contract, white.
    This is more a dig at Microsoft, what do they intend for me to do if I want to stay with Windows Phone but there are no handsets available to compete against iOS and Android? What If I want a high end phone with an LCD screen larger than 5" and MicroSD card slot? There are no Windows Phones with these features, whereas android has plenty.

    The 930 is the only high end handset with have and it doesn't have the features I want... so again, do they expect the average consumer to "wait it out"? Mr Average would switch in an instant. I'm holding out hope for new devices with Windows 10 however because I like Microsoft and their services.

    Pixmania @ 315 plus PnP (not sure if it's UK model or imported). Not the best customer service at Pixmania but a good price.

    Thanks, however for me it says 16gb, on o2 and there is no option to actually buy it or add it to a basket or anything... it seems like a dead listing?

    That's the black version (for some reason that link redirects to black version). White is out of stock at amazon except third party sellers. It says both 16Gb and 32Gb on the page, so it's not clear which is correct.

    This for the white 32Gb unlocked version at CEX Online, with shipping at 2.50
    It's as good as new, you'll still get 12 months warranty on it, so you're safe to return if faulty.
    I've bought the black one from CEX about a month ago for 300 B-Grade, just missing some accessories but still boxed.

    Yeah...but the OP seems desperate enough in terms of colour and storage etc. Sure, hunting around would probably yield a more cost-effective option.

    Just looked at OP saying white 32gb was wanted. The site I found where I originally said black also states it has it in white 32gb. Gsmnation
