    what it means is that they have the stock in their UK office, and it will take 5-10 days for them to ship it over to their US office

    Its very expensive there though, nearly 800 bucks....
    I mean all flagships are like that but I think expansys Canada costs a little bit more than the norm, at least from what I have observed.

    So what other sites are there for Canadians? I've heard omegacell tweeted about the 930 but they don't have it listed on their site yet (nor do I know how reputable they are)

    Yes I just got mine about 2 hours ago. Bought it from Expanses in Canada before I read that it wouldn't work on LTE however after 2 hours of using the device I'd say that everything I've tried here in the Toronto area works great right out of the box. No adjustment to APN settings and texting, browsing and tethering all work great! I'm on Bell. Someone in the office, also on Bell, when running the speediest app on his iPhone 4s got a download speed of 8.5 whereas I got a 10. I love this phone even though I've been using the 1020 I like the feel and size of the 930 (I think the 1520 would be too big). The 930 is almost the same size as the 1020.

    so you couldn't pick up LTE with bell on the 930?

    It doesn't say LTE on the display but the speeds are equal to (possibly better) than what I was getting on my 1020 and better than someone on an IPhone 4s.

    It also looks great next to my surface pro 3 (they practically match).

    I think you can only get 2600 LTE on Rogers, hopefully someone can confirm this. What colour did you get btw?

    I got the white one. So far I have found this device on bell to be the fastest phone I've ever had for download speeds. Quicker than using WiFi often. Great speeds when i use it to get my surface pro on-line. I just wish I had control over the number apps across the screen like I did with my 1020. Three across makes viewing the live tiles a little difficult. I hope Microsoft changes this at some point.

    When did you pre-order from expansys? I ordered, over a week ago but still shows awaiting stock - even though they sent me a "ready to ship" email on Thursday.

    Omegacell has it up on their site now: Nokia Lumia 930 RM-1045 | OmegaCell Communications Inc.
    Listed for $675 rather than Expansys' $789.
    Keep in mind I haven't looked at the bands for compatibility or anything, and I don't know if they are reputable either.

    EDIT: The user in this thread talks briefly about his experience in buying a 1520 from Omegacell and shipping to Ontario. Seems reputable.

    Rogers has 2600mhz LTE and Bell has 2600mhz LTE also, Only Telus doesn't have it. Its possible that LTE speeds are being utilized as I think that is band 7 which the 930 DOES have.

    I just checked. Omegacell sells the Nokia Lumia 1520 (RM-938) for $650 CDN. That is ridiculous. Not only that, it will not work on either Rogers, Telus etc. It is in the AWS band. It would only work with Wind Mobile. Whereas, I could order a far superior version of the phone from Expansys for $554 CDN. It will work on Rogers, Telus etc. It will not work on Wind Mobile, but who cares? I may purchase the yellow one (that's the price given previously). The cost includes shipping fees. Then, you factor in our ridiculous HST, bringing the total to $620 CDN. I may just make this purchase.
