    I have been offered the phone as an upgrade from EE in the uk

    apparently it will be available on the 12th of July according to their computer
    33 a month unlimited calls and 4 gig of data.

    What do people think of this as a deal.
    Take it no upfront cost for the phone?

    I find it amazing that this device was shown to us month ago and it still hasn't appeared in the UK market yet. The specs inside the phone were borderline compared to other phones however this 2 month delay has me thinking its not worth the upgrade from the 920.

    Don't know why they cant release a phone days after the actual conference.

    On one hand it's much better to show a product just before its general availability, on the other Nokia hasn't shown anything new for a while, so they probably wanted to ensure the audience that they are still out there and they are still working on new products.

    I asked EE about this a little while ago (only via online chat) and the guy had no idea what was happening with the Lumia 930 and suggested calling them or going to a store. That's not to say they are not offering upgrades to existing customers, but the guy I spoke to had no clue lol

    I dont think they need us to be screwed. They probably very well know that they messed this launch up.

    Its not the constant delay or the late release date in general but the total lack of information ON the availabilty that concerns me. It is almost as if they hope we forget they promised us the 930 in april so they can get out of it at all ...

    I think your right it was a bit annoying that the phone hasn't been out sooner but I agree it was the lack of information that was the killer if they had said 1 month ago that for instance they had a problem getting screens or they had been asked by oems to wait for Cortana to be out properly then I would have gone ok that's cool I'm still want one though. I am next week ringing orange/ee to get mine and will be over the moon when it comes

    That seems like a great deal to me, did you just ring them and ask? Do you know what colours they are offering?

    Because we like it. Not every purchase needs to be reasonable. Consider it a bit like Alfa Romeo. Not a good buy but then again always a beautiful thing to behold.

    Actually your right I think I might wait till November when a better phone comes out. Then I think I might wait till next April when they announce another better spec phone and then I may even wait till the November of 2015 for the next best model and just as well wait till April 2016 for the next best model and then I have wasted a normal contract time for the next best model. Good idea man very smart always wait for the next best model good idea!

    I sympathise with what you say except it's Microsoft that's to blame. We should send Microsoft a message.

    I asked for my PAC as I was considering a 1520 with O2 was put through to retentions who offered the 930. Colours offered were orange or black I chose black.

    Microsoft, Nokia, it's the same thing. Until the devices have Microsoft Mobile on them people will still be annoyed and contact Nokia.

    If this is how Microsoft will be running their mobile division I will stick with apple I think. (Not a android fan tbh)

    Hi,
    A bit of topic but, I normally buy my mobile phones on contract which is not up for renewal for another 11 months so I will have to buy the 930 out right and sim free. Can anyone recommend a good safe place to buy from online for when it comes available in the UK please.

    Thanks.

    Carphonewarehouse and Phones4U will be the safest places if you want it simfree.
