    The off contract price is real good. But I wanna buy the international version in US as I plan to use it in India (still no announcement here, and will be expensive). From Europe is really expensive.
    Also, will there be any chance of it before month end.

    What do you mean full price ? Off contract price ???

    Also it wont work outside of states due to different frequencies.

    If you wanna use it globally better buy the global version with more bands. There wont be no shortage of unlocked phones on global Lumia 920.

    The one's in the US won't work across the pond on LTE.
    And AT&T will not unlock the phones for 6 months. You can't even buy them without a plan. This is what they have done in the past.

    Ok it seems I won't be able to get my hands on one before November end. If possible any possible word on pricing in India. They released Lumia 900 for 32k INR

    Yes, I called AT&T and the representative told me that I can apply for an unlock if I purchased it at the off-contract price. But I have to allow them at least 7 days for cooking up the unlocking code.

    Not really... Given to purchase online, yes, you are correct. But if you go to the store in person, then things chang :-)

    What are the frequencies in your country? I know that this phone will be compatible with most GSM and WCDMA networks across the planet.

    GSM 900/1800

    LTE is not provided in my country. But I plan to use 3G.

    fwiw - i asked a rep in store yesterday about unlocking - acted dumb :)
    he said i would have you wait 6 months - just like the lumia 900
    he did mention something i had not considered yet - unlikely this will happen but its possible that microsoft stores may offer the unlocked also...like i say tho, dont hold your breath on this.
    i am also wanting to buy an unlocked version simply because i travel outside of the US often and i like the ability to just swap out the sim for a local sim and gain the benfit of cheap data etc.

    Were they unlocking Lumia 900 after 6 months even if it was on contract or were they only doing it for those who bought contract free from the get go?

    If we are able to buy the international version in the US, I would be willing to bet it will not still be selling for $450. That would make very little business sense.
