    Which one you refer to. If this is the Rogers, then Nov 29 was the date that they supposed to get stock, but the stock they got was locked, so they changed it to Dec 7 and later Dec 11 because they have to wait for unlock code. Right now, they remove the date because as I think, they don't want to confuse people anymore and they just need to wait for unlock code in order to ship to customer. In the other hand, they have the black international version, but they sold out after 3 days, the other colors are coming soon as most online seller like them suppose to get stock in about a week from now.
    I'm refering to International Unlocked Color Versions (Yellow is my choice), btw where did you get the info that they'll get it in a week from now?

    Just based on my speculation on other website. Most of them expect to get from Dec 14.

    Classic Negri Schtick.
    Not following the reference. This has nothing to do with US. The dates change due to the fact that the supply is unavailable or that the supplier has also modified their dates. We don't have to offer dates - so we pulled them. Too many issue with customers complaining that we "promised" to ship that date, or that we "guaranteed" to ship then and now we are going back on our word. The verbiage has always been "Estimated" when we speak of dates. And we do the best we can to update the information for you. However, due to the above issue, all dates have been pulled.

    Yeah, that's unfortunate. I couldn't wait any longer, so I picked up an ATT red 920 off-contract. Just waiting for my ST SIM to come in the mail.
    How does Straight Talk work for you? Enough data? Very curious to know if all features are unlocked/available while using this on ST. Let us know.

    Yup, what palandri said. Once I found out that ST works even on locked ATT phones, it was hard to justify a $300 premium for a color and the lack of an ATT badge.
    RedPocket Mobile will also work with a Locked AT&T Device.

    They already opened the box to check for defective before they ship it to you so they will eventually enter the unlock code to make sure it works. They get the phone from some vendors so maybe in the future, the vendors can unlock it first and then distribute to Negri so that they won't have to do anything else beside checking for defective.
    Spincel is correct here. We do quality check the devices. Although we do not hide this fact, it's posted on our store policies and we also include a wee little card inside your package to let you know that we did. It's similar to TSA, but without all the touchey-feely.

    can someone from Negrielectronics explain why the estimate date was changed to Nov 29, then Dec 7 and now coming soon which doesn't say anything....any estimate at all?
    Addressed this in a previous post.

    Spincel is accurate again. While he doesn't work for us, he definitely should.

    A little update here. We are expecting (expecting - NOT promising) to have White and Black Unlocked Lumia 920 on Tuesday or Wednesday next week. Get your Pre/Back-Orders in if you want to secure your spot in line.

    Hey negri,

    Got my SIM last night. Works great with StraightTalk. I'm showing 4G on the bars, and getting about 4.5-5.5MB download speed using a speed test app. After getting APN stuff set up, everything works like a champ on the locked ATT device. Only thing that doesn't work is Internet sharing. Says I need to call ATT. I'm assuming it'll be enabled once they allow us to unlock the device. Guess I'll be waiting for that about another 5 months.

    Great to hear. Check our RedPocket next time you want a change in your service provider. Enjoy the rest of your week/end.

    Is there any update on Rogers version?

    P/s: The price went up, but the good is new they put the estimate availability as next week. I am hoping that this is true.

    Yes, The customer is responsible for the customs fees. It would be impossible to cover these as it's up to the customs agent what they indent to assess as a charge.

    You answered yourself here. We plan to have them next week. Small QTY though. Most pre-orders should ship out.

    I did pre-order last month, any chance that I could get delivery in next week?

    There's been a lot of downer posts regarding the backorder, so I thought I'd share my thoughts.
    I'm currently off contract with my current phone. I preordered an unlocked 920 from Negri back in the end of October/ very beginning of November. I'm still waiting for word on a delivery date.
    I'll wait as long as I have to- the phone is worth it; Negri is a reputable company, and I know the phone is built to last. I'm fortunate enough that my current phone still works very well, and while not having my 920 yet is frustrating, I know in the long term it'll be worth it.
    The plus side of the wait is I get to read posts from current users who are identifying issues to watch out for when I get mine.I learn about apps that are great, and ones that are garbage. I see how others are making the most of their phone, passing along tips and advice I may not have thought or known about prior.
    Negri's return policy is a very generous 30 days, which gives me plenty of time to test it out and address any issues that arise. I appreciate their presence in the forums. I know they take the time to address concerns regarding their business. As a former business owner, that means something to me.Many businesses never respond at all.
    Those of you who went through AT&T are so lucky to have your phones already! I'm so glad to hear how much everyone is enjoying theirs, and I'm looking forward to when I receive mine.

    Hey negri,

    What is the build date of the Rogers Lumia 920 you have in stock?
    46/2012 | 47/2012 earlier, more recent or other?

    Thanks

    I second this. What is the batch number you received for the Unlocked Rogers Black Lumia 920? Also, this might have been asked once or twice before, but is there a Roger's Carrier logo ON the phone? I know that the Rogers logo will come up on the screen when the phone turns on and boots up but I'm wondering about a logo directly on the phone.

    I also want to take a quick second to say that I do appreciate Negri Electronics for replying and answering the many questions we all have. Customer support so far seems to be great. A huge plus for us diehard gadget people. Thanks a bunch!

    FYI, they have it in stock now. Sadly I had to reorder mine again as the payment was expired through PayPal. Anyway, try to order it if you guys have a chance and need it. As they have it unlocked right now, there is no need to know what batch number or what the date the phone was built as they might use something different route to get it unlocked. There is no logo in the front of the phone as opposed to the AT&T. You can search for the Rogers Lumia 920 review on Youtube and you will see. I think what they are saying is the logo when you first boot the device. That splash screen can be replace easily once we have custom ROMs for the 920.

    Yodies, so is the AT&T red 920 off contract is unlocked or locked?
    If locked, how will it work on Straight Talk?
    I understand that ST uses AT&T towers but its a separate MNVO..Kind of confused.
    thanks
    The VMNO (Virtual Mobile Network Operator) piggybacks off AT&T's towers. That is what enables the locked device to function. It only blocks signals from towers from other companies. For example, the Lumia 920 in the UK. Locked to EE (Orange/T-Mobile). Virgin Mobile piggybacks off EE. So the Lumia 920 will work on that. Three however, has its own towers, so doesn't simply piggyback off another company. Therefore the lock is able to block this. It might be to do with small subtleties in the frequencies.

    They did offer me $10 off, so it not bad at all, but I think they should notify people about the expired so that they could reorder it again. In my case, when I saw the tweet that they said it was in stock, I asked the CS guy to check it and it turned out like that, I did reorder again and I am so happy that they processed it so fast as they already shipped out the device. Not really a bad day for me. If I had seen it late, I would freaking slam at their door because I supposed to be on the list that should be out today, not next batch if it was the case.

    Only had the option to buy by paypal o google. They never sent any email if they cancel your order or if there is any problem with it. They need to have better communication with the customer. If I reorder the phone again, i'm going to pay 80 more bucks since the first order, its a good business for them.
