Looks like there are exclusive deals with AT&T in US and EE in UK but no idea how long for. Best bet for earliest sim free unlocked handsets will be online retailers who will probably be stocking euro sim free units. Best to keep an eye on their websites for more accurate timing.

Re: Nokia Lumia 920 carrier unlocked

I'm having the same issues too since I want to get a Lumia 920 for T-mobile. It looks like NOKIA has bowed down to the carriers and no longer sell unlocked phones themselves. I'm on T-Mobile and figured I'd be able to find an unlocked Lumia 920 on NOKIA's website but the site will just send you to ATT. It was through NOKIA that I bought my unlocked N95-3. I'm reading online that ROGERS Lumia 920 version will be PENTA band with the AWS bands that will work with T-Mobile 3g/4g signals. And that ROGERS will sell it unlocked for around $600. Online sellers are selling unlocked Lumia 920 at $700+ or at $800 but ATT is selling theirs unlcoked at $499.99 too. Just dissappointed to see NOKIA no longer sell unlcoked phones themselves as how they used to. And in actuallity it seems like its been harder to find unlocked phones online since all the online retailers now seems to send you to a site that will just sell bundled phones with services.

The 920 that AT&T sells is not unlocked. AT&T will refuse to unlock them for you until the exclusivity is over.

Re: Nokia Lumia 920 carrier unlocked

i agree with you, In zimbabwe we can't buy this phone becoz its unavailable in the country. No network in Zmbabwe offers those contracts which are offered by other networks in other countries.

Actually ludaw94, I verified with AT&T corporate to see if  their Nokia Lumia 920 & even the 820 for the price of $449.00 is sold as unlocked they stated no :crying:... thats only the full retail price of the devicelocked onto their network HSPA, but if you want it to be unlocked, unfortunately:smileysad: they are unable to unlock it for you but you are able to bring it to other locations to unlock it for you for less than $30

Re: Nokia Lumia 920 carrier unlocked

Unlocked phones will be available once the exclusivity arrangement ends. There are rumours its going to be 6 months but this has not been confirmed.

Hi yongeshang,

 

Welcome to Nokia Forum!

 

Non-contract doesn't really mean that the phone is unlocked or generic. It could mean that the phone is locked however, it is on prepaid or pay as you go. I would suggest that you contact Amazon to coordinate with AT&T for the unlock code.
