it looks like it is amateur hour over in the Nokia promotions department. The website said the 16th....then it gets changed to the 20th. Well pretty sure the form I sent in said the 16th on it too so we'll see how this **** goes down.

I'm gonna submit for this even though i bought the phone on the 10th. I want these purity's so bad! I was bummed when i realized regular "made for iphone" headphone/mics don't work with the 920(the mic part). I'd been going back and forth about coughing up another 100 for a good set that i knew would work with the phone. Here's to crossing my fingers and toes!

Here is a quote explaining the confusion. I take no credit, it was actually edited into the wpcentral article after the fact.
"We are very pleased by the positive response to our Lumia range in the US. And I agree, there are some great holiday deals to be had. However, this particular promotion is an exclusive offer available only through our 8 pop-up stores in the US. We apologize for the confusion."Doug Dawson
VP, Media Relations, Nokia
I am interested to see how many of these deals actually get fulfilled. I sent mine out when the date still read the 16th, and my purchase date falls into that slot. That said, it sounds like the limitation is going to be that you must have purchased the phone at the "pop up store". I am guessing they are not offering the charging plate anymore. I could be wrong though! We will see!
Part of me hopes that they only fulfill those who purchased at said store. As nice as it would be to get something for free, I feel like this would make early adopters (who am I kidding, they shouldn't be called early adopters, they should just be called launch week adopters lol)feel a little better. I hope Nokia and AT&T learn some valuable lessons here though. People want something for nothing when they hear someone else got a freebie. Pick a promotion that YOU CAN STICK TO and stick to it. Why on earth they are changing promotions based on which US state you live in, when you bought the phone, etc. is beyond me. This is another place Apple shines. "Buy our phone. It's $199, $299, or $399 based on model. It will be that price until the next one comes out about a year later". Nobody feels gyped because they bought their phone two weeks later than another guy. Win, win.

Looks like they finally updated the list of participating stores and where these pop-up stores are located:
- Mall of Georgia (Atlanta, GA)
- Northridge Fashion Center (Los Angeles, CA)
- Queens Center Mall (New York, NY)
- South Shore Plaza (Boston, MA)
- Stonebriar Center (Dallas, TX)
- Stoneridge Shopping Center (San Francisco, CA)
- Westfield Southcenter (Seattle, WA)
- Woodfield Mall (Chicago, IL)
I just spoke with someone from Nokia on another matter and she said that this is an exclusive offer for those who purchased from the pop-up stores. Anyone know how much they sell them for at the pop-up stores (including off-contract price?)

I promised any updates available that I have been able to get:
*After repeated calls to the number on the Holiday Offer form, 1-877-906-6542, I get either a message advising me to call back during business hours or to stay on the line or leave a message with a call back number then giving me the opportunity to leave that message and then hangs up on me. I'm thinking for whatever reason we can just forget the phone buds.
*As for the Mall of GA pop-up...there is no pop-up store in the Mall of GA. There two ATT company kioses that have been there forever along with a BestBuy phone store that just relocated from another area of the Mall and several other phone company stores. I'll go by them on Tuesday if possible just to see what they are offering since I am looking for another 920 upgrade from the 900.
