    Well, in the spirit of everyone keeping everyone updated, here's my update.

    After having my order mysteriously canceled on Friday (but having my two wireless charging plates ship), I called AT&T, and this time, I got someone who was for more competent than people I had spoken with previously. Apparently this "mismatched phone number" issue, which a lot of people have been getting, including myself, is actually just how the system alerts them to the fact that a SIM card hasn't been added to the order. I believe the system is supposed to automatically add one. In any case, if a SIM card isn't added, rather than the order getting rejected upon entry, the order rejects when it's ship time. That's what happened to me. The guy I spoke to was able to put a "warehouse order" in for me, which is different than a normal order on the website, to get one shipped for me as soon as there's inventory. He also told me that of there three warehouses, one of them was showing a decent amount of stock. The other two, he said, weren't showing any. So he gave me my warehouse ship number. I see today (sunday) that there has been a $450+ authorization on my credit card from AT&T so I hope that means my phone is going to ship out to me tomorrow. If so, I should get it on Tuesday. If I get it, I'll post a pic here. Anyhow, the saga continues...

    Info
    10/21 Pre-Ordered the Yellow with Best Buy $599.
    11/4 5 min after Midnight Pre-Ordered on ATT Premier web site, since Best Buy had not yet shipped (Purchased at full no contract price) $449 was charged $516 total on my bank account.
    11/5 5pm was mysteriously cancelled for no reason, and a 72 hour hold put on my account while they review the order!
    11/8 Reordered with ATT Rep
    11/15 ATT mysteriously cancelled my order and resubmitted with a Micro-sim changing my order date and backorder priority!
    12/2 Still waiting

    After hearing about the "Warehouse order" I just tried calling ATT customer care, asked directly for a supervisor (Premier support was closed- Sunday). The Rep did a bunch of research but had never heard of a "Warehouse order".

    They did verify that 1 of the 3 warehouses do have 606 Yellow Lumia 920's received today, and have 834 backorders.

    Now to see if the statistics continue to work against my order... :-)

    Good luck to all reading these forums, I hope you receive your tracking numbers tomorrow!

    I received my charger about a week after I received my phone. I'm actually wanting to buy another one now but I think I'll wait so those of you that haven't received yours yet can get one.😎

    I ordered on the 9th, received on the 26th. Charging plate was received the 29th.

    A weird thing is that on the tracking info for the phone it showed it flew from Memphis to Honolulu (I'm currently in Hawaii so so far so good), but then it hopped back to Memphis, then back to Honolulu. I don't know if they accidentally shipped it back or if it's a computer error. Whatever, the phone is here and it's quite lovely.

    It's not as neon yellow/greenish as it has looked in some pictures, but it's not pure yellow like the renders either. I really like it. I call it salsa yellow or not-quite-ripe banana yellow. It looks terrible with the yellow theme, though, which is more of a gold color.

    Totally agree with the yellow software theme. It's pretty bleh.. looks like mustard. But the yellow hardware is pretty darn close to pure yellow and I love it more and more each day.

    I'm in love with mine. For a little bit I thought it might be a hint green but it's not. In pure white light it's the darndest canary yellow you've ever seen. I had a cyan N9 and Lumia 900 and they don't compare with the wow-factor of this phone. I've gotten so many comments on it and everyone absolutely adores it, most of them are iPhone owners too. A friend of mine who's super bullish on Apple took a look at it and said "I wish Apple would do things like this." Nokia has done a superb job.

    Ordered mine on the 14th on the premiere webiste as an "add a line" to my family account
    Order processed on the 15th.
    Currently it is still in "processing" status.
    I have called a couple times and I have gotten the same "it is on back order and will ship as soon as possible" response. The rep would not do any credits though and said when it arrives I may call back and ask for a "courtesy credit" for waiting so long.

    Also, I see nothing regarding my charging plate when I check my status. Does nothing show up regarding that until one of the items ships? Also, I wish I had ordered the red charing plate instead of the yellow. Will try to swap it out when it arrives. I think the contrast of the two colors would be look better. And thank you all for the updates.

    Awesome comparison shot @perspicuity! Thanks! It basically looks exactly like the color on the Nokia website. I should have mine today, it's out for delivery!

    I just wanna say, if any of you are thinking of cancelling your yellow order and going with another color........ don't!!

    There are no words to explain how undeniably beautiful the yellow 920 is. So here's a photo of mine:

    It's worth the wait. And I would wait again if I had to.

    It's weird.

    For most of the time I've owned this, I thought that it had a hint of green in it. Very very small hint.

    But in real white sunlight it's yellow. I think the gloss mixed with incandescent lights may make it look like there's a hint of green.

    I believe that incandescent lights do have a hint of orange/amber in them. And fluorescent lights can have hints of green and purple. Just like outdoor "white" light can have hints of blue.

    A lot of these hints of color are hard to reproduce in photographs, because the white balance settings in cameras automatically try to take these into consideration and make the light white.

    So...yeah, this just got interesting.

    I ordered my phone on 11/13 (non-premier), and have been waiting almost three weeks for my phone. I've called a couple times to get the usual 'high-demand' spiel, and finally today I had enough of it. I went to the local AT&T corporate store to figure out something...anything at this point. I found out while at the mall where AT&T is at that the Microsoft pop-up store had three yellow Lumia 920's available. After being told the same thing that the telephone support people told me previously, I asked them if it was possible to cancel my order so I can run over to the Microsoft store and get the Lumia there. The AT&T folks were happy to do it, and I was told the order was canceled there at the store. I purchased the phone from Microsoft (alas, with no wireless charging plate, but my current phone is barely working--I can deal without a charging plate), and it looks beautiful!

    So now I'm here at my computer fiddling with settings, transferring contacts and the like...and I get an email from AT&T. The online order that was canceled at the store already shipped. Now I have ANOTHER Lumia heading to my doorstep tomorrow. And I'll probably get charged for it, too, which will make my bank very, very angry at me. -_-

    Now I have to figure out just how in the world to resolve this really messed up situation. Oy. Just oy.
