    "Hi Gavin

    From 11th July the Nokia Lumia 930 will be available for pre order and will launch on 17th July.

    We have a new hero pricing offer, so the Nokia Lumia 930 is free of charge on our EE regular 29.99 price plan with 1GB, 1000 minutes and unlimited texts until 31st July.

    While stocks last, pay monthly customers can also get a free gift with this phone (valued at 130) which includes a wireless charger, wireless speaker and 20 Windows store voucher.

    And for just 3 more, customers can boost their data to 10GB and get unlimited broadband at Home "

    So, I'm not getting the 100 cashback (from CPW), but I also don't have to spend the same 100 buying out my current EE contract.... My current bill is 33p/m, only I get 1GB allowance - to be honest, I think that EE deal is a blinder!!!

    Ok, don't know... (what is 4G+?!!)

    But I've just taken them up on it.
    The 3 for an extra 10GB is a bit of a squizz as it's dependent on you taking their broadband.... but I'm paying 55 per month for my BB with BT, so I've taken them up on their broadband too, which will be 30 per month instead.

    My order for the 930 is in now too, so just have to sit back and wait :)

    Only slightly annoying thing was that he said it's posted on the 17th :( so I probably won't see it until the 18th... or even the 21st! (after the weekend).

    Fingers crossed!

    they seem to offer a normal 4G and a double speed 4G+ on their website which seems like another money making scheme i suppose.

    Strange isn't it I was told this morning that it was the 14th. Are you going to ring them in the morning to find out?

    Went into an ee store on way home and they have nothing on their systems to say it's available to pre order yet. Will try again tomorrow.

    Ordered mine from CPW, roll on Wednesday :)
    49.99 Orange Phone
    28 a month
    unlimited texts and calls
    1GB data
    100 cashback
    Wireless bundle.

    sounds pretty good to me, I went through to EE retentions but the deals were nowhere near as good, all they kept telling me was there 4G was better than o2's.....

    Not a bad deal, but I would have to buy myself out of the contract with EE (which would eat up the 100 cashback!) - and I'm happy with the free phone.
    I guess because I've switched my BB to them too, it's helped with the additional 10GB on the phone (not that I'll use anywhere near that!)

    So, I can preorder on vodafone via Carphone warehouse, yet no vodafone CS have any information on the phone.
    One of them linked me to a external website just stating the information, saying it looks a real nice phone and that they will put ina call back with the upgrades team to contact me (they never did btw)

    On chat again and the guy still had no idea (this was the upgrades team). I would go with Carphone warehouse route but then i wont get my 20% off line rental deal. I really hope Voda do a preorder other wise come Thursday its just going to be annoying.

    Update: Voda say they aren't offering pre-orders and are only taking direct orders. Apparently though, they have a lot of stock that are in stores already and are ready to go...

    Its difficult to keep track of this monster thread!!, but 3 days ago Vodafone called me to say they were sending them out now (3 days ago), when I confirmed I wanted to go ahead they had sold out, with new stock due in today.

    I know it's conflicting information, but the chap I spoke to knew what I was on about and was quite keen to help.

    It really does depend on who you talk to! (the official launch date was supposed to be the 17th.

    I'd be surprised if any 'official' phones get sent out before Tuesday tbh. Though I'm hoping a day early, that would be nice!

    As a side note - has anyone who has ordered via Carphone Warehouse had anything more than an order acknowledgement email? I've noticed that no money has moved from my account yet and just wondered if everyone was at the same stage? Cheers!

    Hmmm - I ordered mine from CPW last night, orange with bundle, O2 with unlimited txt & voice & 8Gb data forn89.99 one-off, 38/month. Got a phone call from someone from CPW this morning saying order not processed as maybe tariff / cost was too high and he'll sell me another phone!!! My reaction was a polite WTF and he started the order process again and was asking for all my personal details. All sounded very dodgy so I challenged him and after a bit of silence he hung up. Went into a CPW store just now and asked them to look at my order and they said it looked fine. I'm confused and worried. Anyone else seeing this behaviour from CPW - is it a way for a telesales person to get commission by generating a new order???

    That sounds dodgy, even if it is cpw and their internal staff trying to grab orders. Did you get an acknowledgement email?

    That does sound dodgy but not the first time I've heard of them doing stuff like this.
    I'm going into an ee store tonight and if I can't pre order will be going to carphone. Seems daft that they are able to offer it before the network does...

    Ok got to the bottom of it. Apparently some muppet from CPW e-team picked up my order, saw it was out of stock / on back order (didn't realise stock hadn't arrived yet) and thought I would want another phone!!! Anyway, spoke to someone else just now who explained what may have happened as has created a new order for me and cancelled the old one. They have 900 units coming into their warehouse shortly and approx 60-70 have been pre-ordered from that incoming stock so far, so I will be getting it. Only problem is that I'm on vacation from tomorrow for 2 weeks, but have gone for delivery to store option who will hold it from 17 July for 2 weeks. So there you go... all as a result of a muppet at CPW who didn't understand it was on pre-order awaiting stock arrival.

    Well, glad you got to the bottom of it at least! I'd have been pretty confused about where the order stood too in your situation.

    Bit of a shame you may be waiting a little longer due to being on holiday. But hey, holiday right!
