    Got mine on Friday (yes, orange!), ordered it on Thursday at Amazon.de Marketplace ("DastroMedia") - gosh, that was fast! It was told to be delivered between Saturday and the end of this week - so lucky me... :-)

    Now after 2 days of excessive testing, I have to say that I am very impressed und very happy with the Lumia 930:
    * fantastic display
    * great camera
    * amazing manufacture quality

    Honestly this is my first WP device, so I really can't compare to the previous version of WP. Had iPhones the last 6 years (and an iPad for 3 years), so that was my focus the last 2 days, how I personally felt about the switch from iOS (8 Beta 2) to WP 8.1. All in all I found nearly every app I need and I was looking for. Sure this depends on you what you do and need... All in all I love WP 8.1, sure it is not better or worse than iOS (can't compare to Android, never had one, just some minor impressions from friends who have an Android phone...), but it's different in philosophy and handling, didn't expect how different it is, but it perfectly matches my philosophy, needs and expectations.

    My personal goal was to come back to a uniform environment of laptop, tablet and smartphone... I never had something else than a Windows laptop (unfortunately have to work with a MacBook Pro in the office... sorry, don't like it...), never used something else than MS Office, moved my cloud services from Google to Outlook.com and Office 365, so it was some kind of compromise to use Apple mobile products in the last couple of years. With Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 a switch to a Windows Tablet (Dell Venue 11 Pro since last autumn) and Smartphone was never that easy and smart... :-)

    So feel free if you have questions about the Lumia 930, especially if you currently have an iPhone and think about to switch to WP... :-)

    You'll have to wait til it reaches the UK, usually after a day or so and then you'll be able to use the city link tracking code.

    I just remembered the tour de France is on today. I probably won't receive my phone as scheduled today since Westminster's closed off :(

    To the Aussies out there my local Optus store had signs up announcing a 14th of July Launch for the Lumia 930. So not too long from now. I broke my HTC 8x a few weeks before the 930 was announced and have been forced to use my old WP7 launch device. They certainly took their time.

    Got my 930 about an hour ago! I love the phone, I'm very happy with my first ever Windows Phone, very fast but and was english the moment it turned on, I guess it just read the language from my SIM card and displayed that.

    A heck of a lot of updates to install (firmware and apps) but very pleased with it. Still think Nokia/MS should've released this earlier.

    I've just had a confirmation email come through too, the City Link tracking number doesn't come up with anything just yet though. It will probably be with me tomorrow, fingers crossed.

    Just received my 930. First impression looks great and is fast. Only problem is that they did not send the gift pack with it.

    Mine didn't come with a gift pack either because Amazon didn't bundle one with it. I'm not so fussed anyway - I just wanted the phone.

    If you offer it you should deliver it! :-)

    Given them a call. But I think it's only certain retailers doing this offer. As amazon fr are not.

    Cancelled my order, since they still don't know when it will be available. Instead I ordered, after calling several shops, mine on modeo.de. It's available since today and I will receive mine this week :) And the best is: I safe 40€ :)

    It's there offer Bon plan 4G du web - Orange mobile
    So that's not the point and calling them is a fun thing.
    If you like to call them you need your account number but that is send separately from the phone.
    So the phone computer is not accepting your call.

    Thank god we have Twitter. :-) One message and within 3 min they responded by phoning me.
    Still they are looking in to the pack because they are also not sure if it is a mistake or if it is send separately.

    A well at least i can play with my phone now. :-)

    This is Vodafone UK? If so, please report back if you order one and I'll chase them up too!

    Also is this for a contract upgrade?
