    They did a SIM swap via EE activations and hey presto my Lumia is 4g and ready to go.
    Happy camper
    Interesting. My deductions are pretty similar, but I've not tried a SIM swap through Phones4U. Looking after my son today, so will definitely try tomorrow!

    Cheers for this info

    Can you confirm the one you bought wasn't a White one ?
    I have a white one exclusive to EE (see my saga above) and I have tried an orange sim and it didn't work.
    Mines Matte Black :)
    I went into my EE store, bought it on Orange PAYG, called up Orange, number ported from my Pay monthly big sim to the micro sim in 4 hours.

    I know its going to sound daft but I've now heard 4 instances of it, when you buy it on PAYG, what network are you asking it on? T-Mobile or Orange?

    The white 920 is locked to EE and shoudnt work on other networks I believe.
    One thing I spotted was EE offer unlocking here: http://e-gain.s3.amazonaws.com/exter..._2012%20v4.pdf I wonder if they would unlock the white for you given the hassle you have had.

    Glad you finally got sorted OP :)

    To be honest EE have been pretty shocking over the L920 - after weeks of dropping into their stores and getting wildly conflicting information when they actually did have them it didn't go any better - firstly I had to wait 20 minutes to be seen to then, when I did get to talk to someone he went through all the security rigmarole to get my account details (existing Orange customer upgrading) and get my usage so he could "tailor a package". He then read out my average bill and usage and using those details (900mins a month, 800 texts and 11Mb data) decided that somehow the 500mb data plan I was already on was insufficent. Checking my details was all a waste of time anyway since he said he could only do the phone on the fixed packages they were offering which was 41 a month on Orange and 40 up front or 36 a month and 129.99 for the phone on EE (so much for "tailoring") so I sacked them off and went round the corner to Phones4U who couldn't have been more helpful. They did me the exact same plan as the 41pcm that I was offered in EE for 36 a month and the phone for free, oh and a free wireless charger. In the past I've avoided P4U (largely down to their incredibly annoying ad campaigns more than anything) but I honestly can't fault them on this experience. Not sure on the situation of locked vs unlocked but mine is a white one using an Orange SIM if that's any use.

    I have read your blog and I can tell you that the card that worked finally worked in my N920 from P4U was the small one on the far left (your first card). Get P4U to put a fresh one in your L920 and if you get signal bars rather than the no entry sign where the SIM should be then you good to go with a SIM swap.

    Would be really interested to hear how you get on.
