    The phone has already came out for four days.
    After i was informed by the AT&T store rep that they cannot sell me the phone without contract.(Sacramento),
    I did some research on the internet
    Here are some ways to get the phone working without signing the shxxxy contract with AT&T
    can someone who is currently in the progress give me some feedback about how these stuffs work?
    1. buy the International version (Canada or something like that)
    but its so expensive , right?
    2. buy the phone from MS store and get an official AT&T unlock
    I am afraid this would take so long ,even to six months?!
    3.Go to another AT&T store and get a full price one and ask for AT&T unlock
    Same as 2. Who buys L920 in Sacramento? can you provide me the branch which is okay to sell the off contract L920?
    4. GSM AT&T unlocked version
    I doubt this .... and it costs 600 something.
    if someone get the phone from them please does post if it works!
    5. Hacked unlock
    how's the progress now?

    and how about the frequency issue ?
    if the at&t releases the unlock code, can the phone works on the T-mobile?
    or i should get a hacked unlock?

    Thanks so much
    I think this post will also help some other people who are so confused and angry at what NOKIA AND AT&T 've done this time!

    I had a long post typed up them this stupid forum borked up so let me summarize.

    Just wait and get it from Amazon. And no it will run like crap on T-mobile.

    I think there only 4 choices :D.
    1. Go with international version. Unlocked, high price, won't be able to get 3G on T-Mobile if your area is not in refarm.
    2. Wait for Microsoft Store to have stock then go directly to them to buy. I am talking about the physical store, not online store, because online store will redirect you to AT&T for contract.
    3. Search craighlist for AT&T model and pray for a working unlock method. Currently we don't have any specific detail on when official unlock would occur.
    4. Buy Roger version or dev version. Have someone live in Canda to buy the Roger for you or go to Negri to place order. This version at this point is very limited. Or ebay search for dev. Prepare to pay freaking expensive price for this.

    Of all the above, if you are on T-MO, then Roger and dev are the only choices as international and AT&T won't work unless T-MO done the refarm or XDAs figure out how to flash a firmware or something to enable the AWS band.

    i am not in t-mo but i think the service is not bad
    Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 (Rogers) (Unlocked) (Black)

    so this one is unlock and can be used with t-mo?

    I would probably choose red pocket and wait for a unlock from AT&T or xda

    International is unlocked as default, not really sure about the Roger even though they said they would be unlocked, but if it is unlocked, then it can be used with t-mo. I have a feeling that AT&T is trolling us with the unlock process like they did with people who bought the 900.

    so how you recommend about ordering rogers from negri?

    or just purchase a locked phone with red pocket or straight talk and wait for the AT&T or xda unlock

    If you have money, go to those resellers and buy it. If not, try buy off contract AT&T and wait for unlock. Buying AT&T is a little annoying since you have to sign up for a plan even you buy it off-contract, but you can cancel it before it goes into effect.

    How do you know if or when Amazon will get it though?
