    Who cares if they are trained :) we'll still know more about the phones than they will!

    Take my money already!!!
    Ha! Sad but true. Microsoft should just hire people directly from this forum for their Pop-Up stores.

    Just visited my local BB store and they told me that they would accept pre-order at store. They also honor the web quoted $149. She hinted that price at AT&T was supposed be at $199. That makes sense then since the L822 is priced at $99 at Verizon. The price of L820 should also be $99 at AT&T. In that case, L920 should be priced at least $100 higher than L820. I suggest that you go check it out immediately at your BB local store and see if if you can pre-order L920 there at $149. The whole thing is so strange that you just can't trust anybody. It appears to be some kind of screw up some where.

    I'll gladly pay $199 for the 920 to make sure I get what I want. Over a 2 year contract, that boils down to $.20 a day vs $.27 a day to get what I want, when I want! All of the "here then not here" stuff would have me worried pre ordering from BB. I am not a big risk taker with this stuff, especially after I got up at 2am CST to pre order my wife's iphone 5 on their pre order launch and it was still late... IMHO, it is a much nicer phone than anything out there - again just stating my opinion!

    I was in our local AT&T corporate store on Tuesday, 23 Oct, and asked the manager about the 920. He told me they were to get their training on Nov 14th. That seems a little late compared to what others say here. But, I agree, let me train myself...just give me the phone.

    we will know EVERYTHING on Monday, I am fairly confident in that. with the official wp8 event, surely some light will be shed.

    An official release date for instance... we thought maybe nov 4th, but ever other date that came with that rumor has been wrong so far. I mean, why launch on a sunday, how would you deliver phones by mail? and the surface launched on a Friday... That makes way more sense than sunday.

    Im thinking more like nov 16th since there are rumors about tmobile and verizon into that time period.

    AT&T launches most all of their phones on Sundays.

    AT&T always launches phones on Sundays. I agree that we should find out all the details Monday.

    On the one hand, a lot of international carriers are launching on the 12th. On the other hand, AT&T is the "premier" carrier and they launch phones on Sundays, so the 4th or the 11th would be more likely.

    The 4th is my wish, but I'm feeling like the 11th seems more likely given the dates listed elsewhere.

    The tight-lipped part of this makes little sense to me. These devices are all announced, known quantities. If you want to save a full hands-on demo of Windows Phone 8 and app announcements for the Monday announcement, that's a great idea.

    But release date uncertainty is never good.

    Just saw this update: "BGR has confirmed with multiple sources that AT&T (T) currently is planning to launch the much-awaited Nokia (NOK) Lumia 920 with Windows Phone 8 on November 11th." Further, they said 3 colors but didn't name them. Another rumor?

    That's in line with the information I got and tweeted on Sept. 7. The rumors of a November 4 and even October launch seemed too optimistic.

    LOL. I swear I didn't read that before I made my post.

    The three colors make sense. White, Black, Red. Just like we thought before. Yellow and Cyan are Web exclusives. I'll be getting a white one.

    I can pretty much confirm that both the release and preorder date were pushed back ~1 week. Everything was originally intended to be; Preorder 21st - Release 2nd-4th. I have a source(in-law). The original dates were soft scheduled though as they were pretty much reliant on the OS being ready and training logistics.

    I would assume the Best Buy pre-order ship date will similarly be moved back a week. Does your source happen to know if that's true as well?

    Best Buy screwed up basically. Their web systems team launched the ad/preorder page on the original date and didn't get it removed in time.

    They should be resuming preorders in conjunction with AT&T's preorders.

    Aww, I was hoping (probably unrealistically) that it would still ship out for next week.

    I'm going nuts waiting for my 920 :)

    What is the training for? not sure why they need it, ATT reps will remain clueless about what they are selling anyway and just give you general BS.
