    I am only seeing the Lumia 920 available for Purchase with a new contract on Phones4u . Is there a specific link to the SIM-Free version from them? Or is that a store only deal?

    I currently have a sim-free (Yellow) pre-order with P4U, which I should be due to collect tomorrow or Friday all being well. However, I will test this with my Vodafone sim before handing over the money for the handset.

    Do we have a list of product codes yet?

    Store only. The WP8 devices aren't officially on the system yet.

    Just a shame you have to put up with pushy salesman!

    So Clove, Handtech or unlocked-mobiles maybe for November if you want anything other than a yellow 920. It is not looking good...

    I sent a tweet to Nokia UK asking when sim free version will be available, this is what they replied -

    Sorry, we're unable to confirm exact timings on this for you at the moment.

    They have not notified me! But I notice its now missing from their website. I have emailed to cancel pre-order, think I will now go with htc as I think sim free versions of the nokia will not be out before December unless your willing to pay through the nose from abroad.

    I'm going to go into P4U here in Camden at lunch - I saw yesterday when I walked by that all the Christmas labelling is up so I hope the sim-free price is displayed. Did they have any issues or confusion regarding EE contracts when you spoke to them?

    I really want a yellow 920, and the tethering will go down a treat with the Surface :)

    I went into Gloucester Phones4u on Tuesday. They seemed certain they were going to be selling the 920 sim free unlocked. Had the sim free price on display.

    No dates. I'm hoping they will have them in tomorrow. They usually know a day in advance what stock they are getting. If anyone could check today?

    According to their twitter feed, Nokia are under the impression that any SIM free phone sold by P4U will be locked to EE (it's not clear if that's the overall brand or ee the specific network).

    When I spoke to them yesterday the sales guy said that the yellow would be sold sim free and unlocked, the red would be sold sim free, but locked to t-mobile/EE/Orange..

    Either way, that is no good for me as I want black or grey if cyan is not available so Im trying to wait until next week to see if availability gets any better as there is nothing around at the moment.

    Camden P4U told me they would sell them sim-free but it was all blank stares and shrugged shoulders about WHEN they would have stock - one guy was particularly patronising with "it's not out yet. duh". I'm tempted to call another store and see what they say.

    I think the issue is that with the exclusivity deal, in the UK we are stuffed and that will not change before Xmas, so we will have to wait for sources from abroad before we can buy SIM free...

    Hey peeps. First post here, just registered.

    Just read an article on Neowin regarding all this exclusivity with the Lumia 920 and the SIM free handset. Gotta say I'm pretty disappointed.

    As much as I want a Lumia, it's really tough to consider putting off a purchase til the new year - I want a phone to tether my Surface to as soon as possible, ARGH! The size of the dummy Lumia 920 looks perfect too

    Totally sucks :( I can't justify moving to EE for less than unlimited data, on top of buying out my current one with 3UK. All the reviews for the 8X so far seem to favour the Lumia....ATIV S anyone?

    Phones4U twitter support have been telling me that only the White 4G Lumia 920 will be locked to EE, while the Black, Red and Yellow will support T-Mobile and Orange sims on 3G tariffs.

    They also told me that they should start to have stock in on Monday, though I assume that will vary from store to store.

    I am inclined to believe them over any of the news sites as they're actually selling the devices.

    Then again, CNET did update their article about the EE exclusivity with this:
    EE has confirmed the Lumia 920 will also be available on Orange and T-Mobile (which, rather confusingly, are part of EE), which means you'll probably be able to get hold of the Lumia 920 without paying the high prices that 4G demands. Vodafone, O2 and Three customers are still out of luck for now though.

    The article on Neowin was written with information from Nokia and EE. Pretty definitive for me.
    Rather than keep playing Chinese whispers, we've gone straight to the source, contacting both Nokia and EE directly to get some definitive details on these issues, to answer some of the most important questions for those hoping to get their hands on the new device.
