Went into EE (old T-Mob) in Hammersmith Mall, they said no but try other store around the corner (old Orange). they said yes! Only had a couple in stock though. Make sure you go to the old Orange stores!

I called into both EE stores in Chester today (one used to be Orange the other T-Mobile) and both of them said that both the new Nokia's 820 and 920 are only available on pre-order (like the iPhone 5) for pay monthly contract and none are available on PAYG. I insisted that they have paperwork somewhere to indicate that this 920 deal was available on PAYG and she said that it was pointless arguing as they simply don't have any in the stores in Chester. They have no stock. She seemed to think that this deal was only available in the larger stores\cities, probably London! She couldn't say as to when they would actually see the 820\920 in the Chester stores. Well what can you do about that?

How exactly are people getting the headphones *and* the charger? Are you having to push for it, as the woman in the shop scanned them in and said that the system wouldn't let her put both the headphones and the charger through as free?

Oh and is anyone with this phone having severe battery life issues?

The first night I had it, it drained the battery by 50% overnight from 2am to 8am while on standby.

2nd night I put flight mode on before bed, and it still drained 36% in a similar amount of time.

My trip to London I had to keep it on charge on the way there and on the way back. The 4 hours walking in between it nearly died on me!

I tried completely killing the battery last night (even though it shouldn't be required), and keeping it on charge for 10 hours or so overnight. Will see how it lasts today.

I did manage to snap a decent pic though beforehand. The image stabilisation is unbeatable, especially as I took this after a few bottles of Mountain Dew and Boost.

I read yesterday that you have to turn NFC off in settings. That chews the hell out of the battery. Hope that helps :)

The first thing I did was turn everything but WiFi and Data off when I got the phone.

So far its been off charge for 5 hours, down to 97%, estimated remaining time 2 days 10 hours. Its only been used for about 10-15 mins or so over wifi for facebook, updating contacts, updating apps, etc, but it seems a lot better.

I've read somewhere that the initial batch had been sitting in a warehouse somewhere for months without a charge. So I'd advise people to completely kill the battery and do a long initial charge when you get the phone. Even though you're usually told not to these days. Seems to have done the trick for me.

I also uninstalled the facebook app. Not sure if it made a difference. It was the main cause of battery drain on my S3, for no apparent reason (notifications, location, chat, etc all turned off).

Also remember to back out of apps like camera and nokia drive once you're done with them, otherwise they'll stay running in the background. Anyone familiar with android will be at home here.

I subscribed to Xbox Music, but I have a W8 PC, Surface, and this, so it made sense.

Think you need either the Zune software on Windows 7, or if you have Windows 8 when you plug it into your PC it will prompt you to choose a program.

i got mine from leeds commercial street, lady who sold me the lumia just looked at pages of papers i would pressume are pricelists and there she said that it comes with a free wireless charger.
#131
So how is it with that simlock? Does it work with all of them (orange, t-mobile, virgin) or it is orange network only?
#132
Just a note to those looking to get a free wireless charging plate, if you don't get one instore, then you wont get one at all.

The free plate has been confirmed as an exclusive P4U offer. The check the IMEI numbers to see which store or company that phone was allocated to before sending one out.

Guys, is there only black and white colour? I do want a red one..

Does the phone have any branding inside or out?

I got mine last night but didn't get the charger. I'll be going back to the store tomorrow as the phone has bricked within 60 mins of 1st use and now won't boot past the Nokia splash screen. When I take it back I'll try and get the charger too.
#137
Is this handset the 4G/LTE version? Thanks.
#138
I've tried quite a few stores in central London (City) but no luck as yet. Seems to be selling out quickly whenever they get stock and those that do have stock seem to only have pay monthly handsets. Interestingly in one store when i got them to check their paperwork to show that it's available on PAYG the guy in the store said that it showed "Hero pricing" of £369 and standard pricing was £399, but he had no idea what Hero pricing meant! Anyone know? Maybe that means you can negotiate down to that price? Or for loyal customers? But not much use if even the people working there don't know.

I think red (and yellow) are exclusive to Phones4U. Another botch up of the launch.
#141
Found one in Slough and no problems getting the free gifts. Hero pricing only applies if you top up with £60 or more at the point of purchase, so if you do this you'll get a £30 discount i.e. £430 for the phone, £60 credit and the freebies. Good deal if you actually want PAYG.

Lucky you. I went to the EE store in Bristol Galleries, had all the gear in my hands and was then told they couldn't sell me it because the handset was a pay-monthly and someone had labelled the stock incorrectly or put it in the wrong place.
#143
Went into a store in Sheffield this afternoon and managed to come away with one on payg with charger and headphones, The guy in the shop was certain that it wouldnt take my T-Mobile sim and that they would not accept any sort of return.

Anyway tried my sim and all is good :)

Has anyone bought the white 920 and does it work on orange/t-mobile?
#146
I Went to Purchase this deal today in the London Whitleys EE store. All was going well, but the manager refused to give the charging plate and said it was only for pay monthly contract customers. I told him it would automatically deduct from the till, but he refused to give it free...... So I refused to give that store my custom. Means I am still on the hunt, good luck anyone else and hopefully you don't meet such an unhelpful manager.

I have tried zune software but its not recognising the phone for some reason. Done everything i could but no success.

I am currently using the Orange PAYG micro sim that came with the 920. Can anyone using a Virgin sim let me know if you cut down a standard sim to micro size as Virgin said they do not do not supply micro sims?
I have my PAC number so just need to sort out the best sim deal for data and Virgin looks best.

Thanks

Someone got it from Orange on contract, free phone, ultd texts, 750mb data, cant remember the minutes, free email, for £26 pm. Which isn't bad at all.
I just upgraded to the 920 - now in stock at Orange. Free upgrade for me, £36 a month, 1GB Data, unlimited minutes and texts. Only in Black atm though (doesnt bother me).

Best handset and phone OS currently on the market imo.

I managed to buy this phone in Slough EE instore. They said they had 2 left in stock.
I didn't even have to ask about the headphones or charging plate they just offered it as free.

Just picked this up in Cambridge. Great deal! I originally tried to get it with T-Mobile but T-Mobile currently has no 920 pay as you go stock so went for Orange. Thank you r simsini

Try this software Windows Phone 8 Desktop App
That was the first thing i used but its also a pain to use that software. I wont read itune and the windows library. tnx anyways

Managed to get one too. The good news is that the wireless charging plate also works with the nexus. Top deal.
Thanks again op.
#156
Was going to return mine tomorrow anyway due to the build quality being subpar. Various corners creak when the phone is held, the volume buttons are very loud when they creak, and for some reason, the windows and search keys are dark yellow, whilst the back button is the normal white colour. Also, the sim tray sticks out at one side :|

Anyway, I dropped the phone itself from a height of around 1ft today, and it now has a couple of dents to the corners, as well as a deep scratch to the front of the screen. Bearing in mind various scratch tests have shown the screen to be stupidly resistant, my phone as a whole has been laughed at by a small area of fake soft touch bathroom flooring. Looking like its going to have to be eBayed to some poor sod then.

Either way, I'm gonna check EE again in person this time, and hopefully catch one of the staff off guard so they give me this deal :p

For what it's worth I've tested it indoors in London and it's getting 3.2MB/s on Virgin (DC-HSPA). Not bad for £12pm unlimited data, although I will likely pay Orange for an unlock code in 3 months and may change then depending on how Virgin performs.

Overall coverage has been excellent for me on virgin, better than O2, and the speed has been better a lot of the time. However, the mobile network settings seem to be a bit buggy on the lumia 920. I've been on the 3G setting since I got it, and its had no trouble picking up a HSPA signal (no HSPA+ as I live on the outskirts of the city). However, the last few days its defaulted to 3G speeds instead, and refused to change even in the strongest signal areas.

After further testing it seems as if '4G' has to be selected under the network settings in order for HSPA and HSPA+ connections to occur. I have no idea what changed to force me to do this.
