Has anyone here flashed their 920 to the unbranded country variant at all?

Does it make the phone bulkier or too much heavier?

Just bought one 2 hours ago from Harvey Norman in Lower Hutt - last one on the shelf and I threw it on the 15 months interest free. Beautiful phone, great experience - a little hick up during the setup/configuration process but great none the less. It appears that Microsoft has finally 'gotten it' with their partnering up with Nokia.

Slightly heavy but feel firm in hand. I don't think it is bulky at all (coming from someone enjoying his galaxy note)

It definitely worth it. If you want a phone with all the drama of updates and broken applications due to version fragmentation then Windows Phone 8 a definite improvement over Windows Phone 7. I've upgraded from a Lumia 900 to Lumia 920 - it is definitely worth it.

Just updating the experience with my wife's 920 from Telecom that constantly reset itself and required soft-resets (and the occasional hard-reset) to bring back to life.

Telecom Online were very good to deal with. They sent a replacement out even before we had to send the dud one back. They also sent a bag for returning the old one.

I set the new phone up, charged it up, then left it sitting on my desk overnight. This morning it required a soft reset to bring it back... yikes! It hasn't happened again since, but I'll see what happens tonight and decide what to do tomorrow.

My own 920 on the other hand still behaves perfectly, so there's definitely a bad batch of these floating around.

I thought I'd also give the Telecom ppl some kudos for dealing with this so promptly.

Had it occur once during the setup process but hasn't occurred since so fingers crossed that everything is ok.

Dumbo here - found PhotoBeamer already on my phone, what a cool app.  Part of the Nokia app collection.

Also found some info on it here...
