    Any idea how much the phones will cost alone without a contract? Already have a contract with Vodafone (and my phone recently got run over!!) and struggling to pick between the 8X and the Lumia 920 :/ got any advice?

      I went to Phone4U before and they said they had already sold WP8 devices and had sold out of both the Lumia 920 and the 8x. I wish MS/Nokia/HTC would release an actual release date.. keeping everyone in the dark. Not sure when they will have more in. Lumia 920 was £479 and the 8x was £379. Hope that helps.

    Will the EE phones be available under the old T-Mobile/orange? If not this is a sad day for mobiles in the UK EE is a new level of extortion while tmobile and orange where both great value.

    I went into Phones 4 U yesterday, and the salesperson said that they will be selling the Lumia 920 Unlocked, but I have since read that the Sim Free version on sale will still be locked to EE (which I presume means Orange and T-Mobile sims will work). This is useless for me as I am desperate to buy the Nokia but my work pay for my Sim which is on Vodafone! It seems they want to ensure they sell as few phones as possible…
