    Need to cancel my O2, and 3 contracts, port over my number to T-Mobile and stick with them until the phone becomes unlockable (at which point i'll go back over to 3 for their allowance of mobile tethering).

    All in all, a mightily frustrating experience trying to give my money to Nokia but the individual I got at the EE store was a good bloke.
    Have you looked into getting a virgin sim? It will work on the EE network and they offer unlimited data including tethering..

    Really?? I'll check that out. May need to cancel another new contract! It makes it more suspicious that I'm opening through quidco. Seems like i'm trying to get the cashback without keeping the contracts.

    Have you been able to confirm that a Virgin sim will work with one of the EE locked 920s sold by P4U?

    If yes, I am off to buy one this afternoon.

    Yes, they've been confirmed working. You'll need to get a micro sim from them though which they charge extra for (5). Or you can just cut the standard sim.

    I chatted to them earlier about this and here's what "Adam" said:

    Me: I saw "Please be aware this handset will only work with Orange, T-Mobile & EE sim cards." on the item page. Would it work with my Virgin SIM as that runs on Tmobile/Orange?
    Adam: to be honst it wont work no
    Me: 100% sure?
    Adam: afraid so

    I was going to buy from P4U, placed an order at Amazon.de now for the yellow 920.

    Hmm I knew it! Can't believe they lie to people like that.
    I'll still stick to amazon.de. Around 30 more but at least it's not locked or branded in any way.

    Oh tell me about it... I thought we were meant to get it before US. I went everyday to phones4u stores asking them when its coming out (red 920). They had no idea.. its unbelievable.. then in the website "register" sign for the red one turned "buy it now" so i thought its finally and I bought one but didn't get any email from phones4u tell me when i'll get it, even those its a 48 hours delivery, I chated to one of the person online from phones4u and NOW they tell me, they'll have in stock next week on the 19th, this is true torture for us.. not liking it one bit....

    Can anyone else confirm that, in the UK, the virgin media sims, the amazing 12 unlimited text and mobile web offer works in the phone4u "Sim Free" lumia 920?

    If so this changes everything but I'd like to see some others say this is the case before I stop browsing the amazon.de website :)

    Glad people are now picking up the 399 deal at ee, I really did not want to trek in to town to get a photo.

    Anyway, ordered mine this morning from P4U. 28.50pm for 600 mins 1GB data plus unlimited texts.

    Word of warning though, if you go down the upgrade route it destroys your rights. The guy stated that the distance selling rules only apply to new contracts. They will not replace it unless faulty, unlike if you go new which gives you 14 days to decide if you like it. I really did consider cancelling when he read that to me.

    I got the guys name at P4U so I know who to rant at it something messes up.

    Oh, got the speaker and wireless charger coming too, but I have to redeem some code online for them. Boom, I am happy.

    I went along to EE today in Greenwich, no Windows Phone branding on the windows or in store; in the shop they had a whole wall for iPhone, half for Android and the other half shared with BlackBerry and WP. Out of the 6 WPs there were only 2 models; the 800 and 610!
    I asked about the 920 and was told they didn't have any dummy display models so could show the phone. On asking what colours they had they checked and was told black but had to ask to physically see the device. At no point was I told of the cost or tariff options.

    Nice work Nokia, you've chosen a partner that doesn't give a damn.

    I phoned EE yesterday and the lady told me they are not expecting stock for contracts until next week! Talk about a weird stock allocation.

    Yeah, EE stores are really odd. Stay with P4U if you can - they have loads of WP stuff

    Due for an orange upgrade for last 2 months and been following the 920 and 820 very closely. EE to me need to be NN (Nothing Nowhere) as the prices are beyond ripp off!...heres the deal I got...

    First I called Orange and made friends withthe lady on the other end (took 30 min and had her laughing) she then offered me the following:

    Free Lumia 820
    500 Min Free
    750 MB Data
    Unlimited Text
    Free Push Email

    all for 26

    I knew Phones 4 U are offering a free wireless charging plate, Orange do not offer accesories, so I was told.

    I then called Phones4U after taking the number of the Orange rep in case they couldnt match the deal. Heres what I got...

    24 month Contract
    Lumia 920 for free (not 820 as with orange)
    600 Min free
    500mb Data (I mainly use Wifi anyway but im going to go back to orange to see if I can blag an upgrade)
    Unlimited Tex
    Free Push Email
    Free Wireless Plate
    Free copy of Windows 8 Pro

    26 a month :)

    So I have the Lumia 920 Sim-Free and my T-Mobile sim works in it..

    BUT:

    No data :/. APN settings for Internet and MMS are blank. Tried a few I found online but nothing works. I have no idea why and it's pretty annoying.

    Any ideas? :)

    EDIT:

    It turns out after adding APN settings the phone needs restarting for it to take effect. Sigh. All fixed :)

    Managed pick up the black Nokia 920 PAYGO 399 deal with wireless charging plate and headphones at EE in Ealing Broadway last night. Last one in stock.

    Transferring my currrent contract at Orange for 10 a month with 300 minutes 500 texts and 500MB data.

    Its been nightmare but guess it was worth it in the end. Still convinced that Nokia have truly screwed up their marketing and promotion of the phone. Lets hope enough of us have got on board to keep Nokia and WP8 going.

    yeah id rather wait another week thank pay an extra 100. My local P4U say they have got all colours coming in on their thursday delivery and, as i have got to know them so well going in every day, are gonna put a black and yellow one aside so i can compare both and see which i want.

    Spoke to virgintoday and they said some of their simsdo work, some dont but although they shouldnt works lots of people are telling them they do.
