    Last week I checked Negri Electronics and the phone was 698 US Dollars. Now, it's 775 for the black one and 730 for the grey one.

    I do not find that very reputable.

    Any other places to get it?

    Will the Microsoft stores get unlocked/unbranded Lumias?

    I refuse to buy it for almost 900 US Dollars from a dude on Ebay.

    I am getting kinda desperate. (I need me my gadgets)

    Mxico!

    My parents are going on a trip to Ft. Lauderdale on November 22nd, I plan to have the phone shipped to their hotel so I don't have to pay some crazy taxes and tariffs in my country (The country with the most international economic/trade agreements in the world).

    Yeah, it sucks. But I may be getting this phone in less than a month :)

    But I think I need to order it on the 18th at the most, so everything is kewl.

    The Rogers 900 is apparently unlocked and 600 dollars. Good luck finding one. I've been calling several local stores a day and no one has any.

    I have till the 18th to find something decent.

    Apparently, Negri will get them on Nov. 6th and 7th. (Different models on different dates)

    It's kind of tough right now since the phone isn't widely distributed yet.

    If you are still planning on have it delivered to your parents are in Florida, keep checking eBay, Amazon, MobileCityOnline. That's all I can suggest at this point in time.

    Good luck to you.

    same here. currently in the states. hoping to get an unlocked on by the end of November. Just checked Negri Electronics. It has unlocked 920 from Rogers Canada for $645. wondering if that's a good deal.

    That sounds like a pretty good deal. I only have one question:

    Is the unlocked Rogers 920 phone truly "unlocked"? Can I insert any sim card like one from T-Mobile and it will just work?

    Negri doesn't specify the available date. That's the thing driving me crazy. I want an unlocked 920 and I can't wait any longer... In fact I just posted that I ordered an Galaxy Note II instead. But once the 920 especially the 1700 unlocked model becomes available at reasonable price (<=$650) I'll either sell the NoteII or give it to my wife and just get myself a 920.

    --- sorry just saw that Negri listed Rogers 920 to be available on Nov 6. Don't whether they can actually ship by that date.

    Yes, the first batch of Rogers 920's have been truly "unlocked" in the manner that you are thinking. We don't know if that was intended or just an oversight..so I wouldn't count on that going forward. 3rd party unlock codes are typically pretty easy to come by for Rogers locked phones though

    If it's truly unlocked I'll just buy it. The thing is can they really ship on Nov 6. I must have the phone by Nov 9 so that's quit a rush. Their second day shipping is like $29, not too bad though..

    Yeah, I guess the best deal right now would be to get it from Negri.

    Has anyone ordered anything from them?

    They appear to have good reputation, but since I will be ordering two 920s (me and my wife) I want to know I'm spending 1500 dollars somewhere trustworthy.

    I don't know that would say Negri isn't reputable because they raised the price. The other sites I've had my eye on that sell Lumia 920s have done the same thing. GSM Nation, for instance. They had them listed at $699 two days ago, now they're listed at $799.

    Maybe wait another couple of weeks and see how much Amazon is selling them for?

    Damn. That is sad. I'll keep my eyes open these coming weeks, then. Thanks!

    ResellerRating is a good place to check online retailers

    Negri Electronics Reviews - negrielectronics.com Ratings at ResellerRatings

    Gsm Nation Reviews - gsmnation.com Ratings at ResellerRatings

    GSM Nation has a real good rating. Negri seems ok.

    I know this thread is about the 920, but the 820 for $500 seems like a really good price for that phone. If I was looking for a new phone right now I would probably get the 820

    On Negri, I just saw a AT&T 920 for $579. Its not unlocked, but if you're on AT&T, that's the lowest price I have seen anywhere.

    i sat and looked at the 3 different types of Lumia 920 on the Negri site and couldnt really tell for sure if the "unlocked" rogers would be able to work on any 3G or enhanced 3G networks when on an ATT sim in the US.
    really quite a good choice though...
    and for those wondering - i have heard engadget mention on their mobile podcasts the negri website and how they sometimes provide them review units.

    I meandered right over to that one earlier! Love the color. Only thing is that it doesn't have the 1700 band. The price is very decent.

    Guess I'll just wait a couple of weeks to place my order.

    I just sent Negri an e-mail inquiring about availability and possible price hikes. I'll let you know if they tell me anything interesting.

    Any news if the Microsoft Stores will carry them unlocked? That would be my best bet, I suppose.

    That makes me a sad panda.

    Yeah, I guess I'll wait. Not having an international warranty also makes me a sad panda.

    So I have no crappy idea what I am supposed to do. I need me my Lumia.

    Friggin' iPhone 4S. If I made a little bit more money, I don't know... 25-30% more, I would take my 4S and break it agains a wall, run it over with my car, pee on it.... damn, light it up with some gasoline.

    BREAK that piece of boring, stale doodoo.

    I've been told by several Microsoft Store employees that they will not be unlocked. They also stress that they (the Microsoft Stores themselves) are "only" third party dealers so they are locked in to whatever carrier they are selling for.

    I find that humorous (and sad)
