    but no EE are only doing black and Orange
    Just checked this out (in case they got mixed wires, again!), but sadly you're right - 2 colours only.
    A bit naughty of EE to start taking pre-orders on a colour they're not going to supply!

    I called O2 who said they have zero information on the phone - no tariff, or release date or anything. But they said they would match CPW's 33 per month deal...not sure if they will do the pre-order pack but might try my luck :)

    I'm with O2, I'd get it from elsewhere, if you can. Just the idea getting timely official OS+firmware updates (notwithstanding Developer Preview) was enough for me to go elsewhere the last time around since you get an unbranded phone. This time, I've even gone sim-free with a deal from carphonewarehouse and 84 chequeback and ordered the phone separately from clove.co.uk.

    That's true. My Galaxy S3 was unbranded from Phones 4 U (O2 network) and I got updates before carrier branded S3s.

    Hmm, choices...I might just pre-order via CPW.

    Choices indeed and I would have chosen CPW for the monthly plan option since they're also offering 100 cashback which makes it cheaper than comparable off-contract sim-only plans. But in the end, I didn't want to be tied up for 24 months again.

    Just noticed that Clove emailed and said that the (cheaper) UK courier delivery will work out quicker than the more expensive Special Delivery option. Basically the courier will go direct from the Nokia supplier which bodes well. They've given me the option to swap delivery methods to get the phone on Friday 18th, pretty happy to get a reduction in cost (only 3 but still!).

    It's probably the pessimist in me...but something about the lack of fanfare and media hype makes me feel the 17th July release is going to be delayed by a few days.

    I'm thinking a release next Monday or Tuesday. But then I also fell for "news" that said the Lumia 930 was being released on July 1st...so I'm feeling pretty negative about tomorrow.

    I was just going to post something similar. I pre-ordered with Phones 4U on Saturday and they guaranteed me the phone would be delivered on the 17th, however when I log into my account on their website, my order status still says "Awaiting Stock"...

    I would have thought they would be getting stock in either today or tomorrow and deliver it on Friday for us to receive on Saturday. CPW told me that I will most likely receive the phone on a Saturday, but there is a chance it could be here on Friday. I was kinda hoping that it would be delivered today at some point and received tomorrow before everyone else. :p

    I'm quite the optimist and am still hoping for this to happen lol, but if it doesn't then I would hope for it to be here for Friday. :D

    Yeah, the website isn't too clear on this. It says delivery expected by 17th July, but it's not clear if that's to them or to us.

    I'm still holding out hope I get the delivery email today saying it's arriving tomorrow as I have time off!

    Just got a text from CPW and said that it's on it;s way and will be delivered tomorrow. DPD will contact me with my timeslot which I'm guessing will be tomorrow at some point. Unfortunately my bundle package has been delayed and I won't be receiving that until next week. Not fussed about the delay on my bundle, I JUST WANT MY PHONE! :p

    Whoa, that's pretty depressing!
    My EE 'upgrade' was 29.99 with unlimited calls/texts & 2GB on 4G :(

    Edit - Ah, I guess you paid (150?) for the handset?

    My delivery info has all been updated in the last half hour too, which is pleasing. DPD will be delivering mine tomorrow, ordered from Phones4U:

    • Lumia 930 White (no upfront cost)
    • Unlimited calls & texts, 4GB data for 35.50 per month
    • 150 accessories including wireless speaker, extra charging plate
    • 20 app voucher
    • A "free" case (presumably the official flip case)
    • 80 cashback, which essentially makes the monthly cost 32

    9.99 up front cost. It was the 34.99 plan, but she ticked a box onscreen to give me 20% discount.

    What I didn't realise is that the extra charger has a built in battery - you can wirelessly charge the wireless charger and take it with you, which is fantastic Imo.

    Actually it says
    We are able to despatch direct from our Nokia distributor which should allow most orders to arrive on Friday, but this cannot be guaranteed
    So if it does not arrive on Friday then there is more waiting for the courier on Monday or some other redelivery. I'll take my chances with RM. If I miss them they I can fetch it from them down the road.

    Fair enough - I'm happier to take my chances with the courier as the email they sent me states the below: We note your request to dispatch by Special Delivery (unless you have contacted us recently). We expect to ship to you on Friday for delivery either Saturday or Monday.

    ^ From that, I took that RM option would not ship before Friday and that Saturday is the earliest possible delivery. With the courier, sure it's a risk that Friday might not happen, but more or less the same with RM for Saturday no? I'm in Zone 1 so hoping that a courier can get here on Friday

    Just received an email from Clove:

    We are pleased to inform you that your order is shipping a day earlier than anticipated!

    Your Nokia Lumia 930 is being dispatched by UK Mail Courier direct from the Nokia distributor - we expect them to deliver between 8am and 6pm on Thursday 17 July. If no-one is available to sign for the package they normally attempt delivery again next working day, however, they should leave a card enabling you to contact them if you wish to do so.

    Got an email from Unlocked Mobiles an hour ago - my orange Lumia 930 has been dispatched! Still no sign of them paying me back the difference between what I paid and final preorder price they announced last week.

    I frequent a French Windows Phone forum and they are all complaining about the accessories bundle. Apparently lack of stock has meant that some phones haven't been sent out until the bundles are available. Glad I ordered the phone only from Amazon France. Have been using it for over a week, and got the white one which in the UK is exclusive to Phones4U.

    Just received an email from Clove:
    thanks for posting, I'm chasing them up now as I haven't heard anything back since yesterday - I really hope the changing of delivery options [at their offering] hasn't delayed the whole process, but at least they have them in stock.
