Well it's 599 GBP unlocked in Great Britain, which translates to $1,030(!) AUD.
If the Lumia 1020 is that price down here, i'll grab a 925 or 920.Proud owner of a Nokia Lumia 520 in Cyan and a HTC 7 Mozart! I have developed one app!

This past Saturday I was at the ATT store looking at this phone, I pulled up Microsoft Stores website and showed the gentleman that was helping me the free camera grip deal and he said they didn't know anything about that and didn't offer the same promotion. So good luck getting them to price match, at least in the store. On top of that, they said if I was returen the phone for any reason, there was a $35 restocking fee, unless I swap it for the same phone model.

Ran into the same thing myself. The corp store has refused to match the price drops. I won't buy one. The website like Microsoft and Amazon don't allow me to keep my unlimited data and 200 texts. I dearly want one, held her in hand yesterday, but the $299 is nuts.

Hmm...from Bestbuy's website:
Online or In Store: Find a Lower Price and We'll Match It.
If you find a lower price on a qualifying product at a local retail competitor's store or a designated major online retailer, we will match the price. At the time of purchase, we will match the current pre-tax price for new, identical, immediately available products from a local retail competitor's store and these designated major online retailers: Amazon.com, Apple.com, Bhphotovideo.com, Buy.com, Crutchfield.com, Dell.com, Frys.com, hhgregg.com, HP.com, HomeDepot.com, Lowes.com, Newegg.com, OfficeDepot.com, OfficeMax.com, Sears.com, Staples.com, Target.com, TigerDirect.com and Walmart.com. We will match prices between our stores and BestBuy.com®. We will also match prices post purchase if we lower our price within 15 days of your purchase.
The Guarantee is limited to one price match per identical item, per guest and does not apply to: Contract mobile phone devices and plans, the online prices of retailers not listed, the online prices of third party vendors (Marketplace vendors) on designated major online retailers websites, post purchase price match requests to competitor's prices, Best Buy for Business™, offers that include financing, gift card offers, bundling of items, free items, pricing errors, mail-in offers, coupon offers, competitors' service prices, items that are advertised as limited-quantity, out of stock, open-box, clearance, refurbished/used items, our and our competitor's Deal of the Day, daily deals, special hour sale event items and credit card offers, BestBuy.com Clearance & More and Marketplace items, and items for sale Thanksgiving Day through the Monday after Thanksgiving.
I don't see the 1020 on Fry's site, but they do have the 920 for $29.99 with contract. But Amazon has the 1020 for $249.99. That 920 is a screaming deal.

I still have an Unlimited plan, but I really wish I could tether.
In my opinion, AT&T's 5GB plans are too expensive for the amount of data you can use. If it was 8GB I might be willing to give up my Unlimited plan. Or if you could roll over data like you do minutes I'd do it. Heck, even if rolled over data had a 10GB cap it would be fine.
I use under 4GB most months. But sometimes, if I'm out of town, I will go over by a decent sized chunk.
As for phone pricing (to get back on the thread's topic), the $300 seems a little high for me considering there's also the $36 upgrade fee.
I currently have a 920, and to get that awesome camera (and I honestly don't take all that many pictures), I'd have to give up my built-in wireless charging.
Fry's and Amazon have it for $249, which isn't quite low enough yet. The Microsoft store throws in the camera grip, but they're still keeping the price at $300. So really, it's like going to Fry's or Amazon and buying it and the camera grip. It ends up being close to the same.
The 2GB or RAM doesn't make that much of a difference to me. I've never noticed my phone getting sluggish. I wish they had 64 GB of on-board storage though.
When the price gets down to $200 on contract I may bite. I expect that we'll see it happen first on Amazon.
