Not at the moment, according to a conversation I've just had with P4U. Nor are they selling sim free 920s yet. Nor do they have any other colours than black or white at the moment. Bit of a fail, really...

Will it be possible to buy a Lumia 920 off-contract?

Yes. Phones4U will sell the device without a SIM card for those who don’t require a contract. However, Phones4U will be selling what’s been described to us “an EE variant of the Lumia 920” that will only work with Orange, T-Mobile and EE SIM cards. As previously reported, this off-contract 920 will be sold by Phones4U for £459.95.

Can I buy the Lumia 920 from somewhere other than Phones4U or EE?

No. EE is the exclusive carrier and Phones4U the exclusive retailer for the device in the UK.

Will there be an end to this exclusivity arrangement?

Nokia says that it will review the current arrangements ‘later this quarter’.

If the Lumia 920 is exclusive to EE, does that mean I have to get a 4G tariff?

No. EE has confirmed to us that the 920 will also be offered through its 3G carrier brands, Orange and T-Mobile.

How much will the Lumia 920 cost on a 3G tariff?

Customers on Orange will be able to purchase the device for £49.99 upfront on the Panther Extra plan at £36 per month; T-Mobile customers can get one for £49.00 upfront on the £36pm Full Monty tariff. T-Mobile’s Full Monty tariff also include unlimited data. Other price plans are available on both carriers; upfront device charges may vary.

When will the Lumia 920 be available to buy?

You can order a Lumia 920 on contract from Phones4U right now, for delivery on 6 November. Orders are available via EE’s website right now, offering delivery within two business days. T-Mobile and Orange will begin offering the device on 9 November.

TL;DR - 9th November on Orange and T-Mobile. £49 on The Full Monty.

So too much really. Full Monty seems better than Panther Extra fwiw

Nice find though :)

I went into Phones4U on Saturday and they told me that i'd have to sign up on an EE 4G plan.
When I enquired about the phone on T-Mobile Full Monty, as I live in an area where 4G is not available, I was told flat-out that I couldn't.
This might have been down to the staff not being as informed as they should be or they've been told to push EE no matter what.

Everyone gets a different story in every shop they go in to, so until they have stock and a price list, it's probably best to ignore what they say. The information I posted above came from Nokia via Neowin (I think it was Neowin...). It's not been disputed by P4U or EE through any official channels, so I'd assume the sales rep is probably wrong (or he's been told his commission on EE contracts is higher - definitely one of the two).

I've just found the article.
Think i'll be taking it with me next time I go in to do battle with the sales rep.

Doubt it will help you much.

The release date has probably slipped now. Latest rumblings are that the 920 failed EE's carrier testing, which is why handsets weren't in stores last week. All handsets have been sent back to Hong Kong for a software update - it could be the 19th before they're in full supply in the UK.
