    It shows 01:00:51 which is about the amount of time I have spent on the phone (HH:MM:SS), so that's all me. Yellow to remind me how exciting I am.

    To me that means these devices are brand new, which is fantastic. I plan to duke it out with the HTC One for my love and really want to test the two cameras.

    Having some issues transferring texts over, though, which is a bummer. I hoard texts like nobody's business.

    Anyone have app or settings suggestions?

    The seller was QualityCellz via eBay. Slickdeals (where I found it) reported it sold out 7/25.

    2500 new L920 owners out there.

    I got a new L920 on Tigerdirect.com for $135 + $7 shipped, not too bad for brand new, not unlocked though

    I also thought about going through TD, but when I finally got around to deciding it was sold out, so went with the eBay refurb. This phone has *never* had a phone call made on it before today. I'm almost positive it's a brand new device.

    Did you get the red from TD or were they offering other colors?

    Yeah, I was the one who posted the TD deal on slickdeals...I got the red one, its pretty nice...had I known the ebay refurb hadn't had a call on it, I would have gotten that...I have AT&T, so I don't really care...just loaded DP8.1 on it, loving it!

    My 920 is working really well. No problems thus far. I now need to consider a case for it to tighten that slick plastic grip. I'd rather leave the screen exposed as well as the photo shutter button. Ideas?

    Even though I hardly use it, I have a black Incipio DualPro Hard Shell Case for my yellow 920. Great case and offers protection around the screen. Got mine from Amazon last year for around $20.

    Has anyone switched out the housing on their's?

    I have the red, but it's definitely slick and not really my color. I had to settle for it when I hemmed and hawed when all the colors were available and I didn't buy then.

    The swap looks pretty easy, but it'd be cool to know if anyone else has done it before.

    I decided to return my 920 in favor of the 635 (with a reminder what I also have a 520).

    I knew that a WP device wasn't going to be my faily driver, and as a backup device I just didn't think the 920 was the right fit for me. Don't get me wrong, it's a very good phone. Super solidly built, fast despite its age, and a worthy entry device for a more full-featured WP experience. However, despite it's being a tank I found it to just be too heavy for me to carry around in additional to my HTC One daily driver. The camera wasn't very good, imo. From the stills I've seen it was really, really incredible with Portico, but most pictures came out with too much noise for my liking. I didn't see much an improvement over the One in regard to picture quality. Also, as I planned on using a backup WP as a media device, the 32 gigs of built-in storage, while very nice, ,wasn't enough for the few apps I use and all the music I carry. In this regard the 635 was better for me, especially with the recent update to Xbox Music that makes externally-stored media usable.

    I liked the 920, and for $140 dollars it was sweet. Just wasn't the right fit for me. If it were lighter, had a smaller footprint, and an SD slot I would have kept it without question. 635 has a leg up for me because of these things (and better battery life, too).

    If you got a 920 in this sale, it's definitely worth it. I also recommend the 635. I like Windows Phone a lot. I know there's a decisive idea of the potential of android apps running on WP in favor of native apps, but if Windows Phone closed the second tier app gap for me then I'd be using this daily. I know everyone says that, though.

    Good luck to all who have new 920s!

    We just got the transparent gel case from wpcentral store which only had one review but it was great. Better than the previous one we got from amazon. That soaked up the denim color of jeans!
    Only bad thing for you is camera button is covered, but having had my 920 for two year I find it better to use the screen to shoot as the pressure required for the button can move the camera and cause blur.
