    Since operators doesnt offer this phone there in Latvia, I recently order Nokia Lumia 920.1 at the lokal internet magazine. After two days seller calls and says that awailable phone doesnt have latvian language (it is not possible to go to the store and see the actual phone, since those internet magazines got nothing in stock)
    Im confused, since from reviews I know that Nokia Lumia 920 does have latvian.. Is it possible that there is modified version of Lumia 920 and Windows Phone 8 which doesnt have this specific language?
    The order is cancelled for now until I get some confirmation that there is no such modification of WP8 and seller was wrong and I can order the phone any way. Does your Lumia 920 have latvian language which in phone must be read like "latviešu"?

    P.S. according to information I found on the internet, Lumia 920.1 stands for global variant of the Lumia 920, which must have language of my interest..

    well i guess if Nokia did not import a Latvia version then probably local retailer just import some other euro variant into the market. However you may just flash it with a variant that includes your preferred language and it will work just fine.

    Your suggestion can be solution actually, but I guess flashing the device is voiding the warranty and for 770$ device it can end pretty painful if something goes wrong..
    Im very surprised to see different WP8 versions and language packs, especially after I saw very first user review of 920 (canada - Rogers) back in october 2012 and even on different continent there was that language!

    Just FYI, my unlocked 'euro' 920 does have latvian. That would be an RM_821_eu_euro1_276 that I bought from UK (Clove). So I think you just have to find someone who is really selling a euro version phone!

    Think all Lumia's just have the same languages available? My Dutch Lumia 920 at least has exactly the same languages as the one shown in the video and Latvian is between these.

    The internet magazine find a Lumia 920 with my language, which was made for Sauda Arabia, at least it was writeen on the box, however inside the phone there was listed that Manufacturer Model name: RM-821_eu_euro1_342 and there are two names of operators mentioned. In About section: EE and in Extras and Info - Mobile Operator Name: ORG-GB.
    Im not familiar with operators in UK, but one thing is for sure, this phone is not intended for my countrie market. So I baught it and have high hopes that everything will work :)

    I guess it maybe flash with an UK rom by the reseller. But if they provide you warranty it should be fine. But usually reseller phones are not included in Nokia's warranty or limited warranty only.

    I guess You might be right. The warranty consists of printed A4 page with model name, imei number, warranty shop adress and check strapped to it. Hopfully I wont need it
