Just purchased my third Lumia920 today (Rogers, Calgary Canada). This was from a new shipment that arrived on Friday. There were definitely some changes from the Lumia920's I bought just the week before, and the one I bought the week before that. The first and second Lumia920's were carrier locked but the home buttons were noticeably yellower on one than the other, but buttons were very bright on both. The whiter buttoned one was defective with lockups occuring every 12-18hours. The yellow-buttoned lumia has been flawless so far.
This latest third Lumia920 has whiter buttons but not as bright. There are new Rogers apps installed on the phone that weren't on the first two Lumias: Rogers Anyplace TV Live is now preinstalled on the phone as is One Number. The newest Lumia remains carrier-locked.
Nice to see that Nokia appears to be quickly updating and revising the Lumias currently in production. Perhaps that is why they are backordered: these first production releases were in limited quantity in order to screen for systemic defects and, now that they've hopefully addressed some of the issues, they will begin ramping up production?

Just got my replacement Lumia 920 shipped to me yesterday. My first one was one of the ones that Rogers shipped out before the official launch and had battery issues/freezing/restarting. That one was manufactured 43/2012 and my new one is a week newer, 44/2012. First one was unlocked, and though I don't have another sim to try in my new one I believe it is unlocked (someone suggested that if you dial ##782# if nothing happens then it's unlocked). Both are Hardware Revision number: 126.96.36.199
One thing I did notice is that the SIM card tray is different between the two devices. I'll post a pic after work today.Nokia Lumia 1520 RM-937 w/ 64GB MicroSD card

In other news. Has anyone noticed frequent APP restarts? It may be keyboard related as for some reason, every so often when I tap a text field and begin typing, the app forcefully restarts on it's own.
