Topic # 138117 20-Dec-2013 09:47 Send private message

I was going to buy one through work, but our Telecom (Gen-I) account responded that they are a discontinued line (although there are some in the retail stores I believe). So I thought I might just bite the bullet and buy one on my personal account, only to find they are completely gone from the Vodafone site.

Have Nokia ended this phone? If so, are they replacing it with an equivalent or have they completely abandoned this line?

It's probably just discontinued on Telecom's end, likely that the device didn't sell too well so they're just going to sell the last of the stock and not do another order.

Something is up. I just had a look on both Expansys and parallelimported and both no longer list the Lumia 1020.

The UK expansys site still has it though. Maybe just overall low supplies?

Parallelimported were advertising it on the front page of their latest brochure that came in the Herald yesterday...

This was a Telecom exclusive Phone in NZ so was never available through Vodafone, they only have the Lumia 925.
It still seems to be available through the TelecomNZ website so I'm surprised, apparently the discontinued the 920 ages ago, but I still see they had a display of the 920 a couple of weeks ago in Westfield Riccarton mall

They have it at Dick Smith in Australia, I'm heading over Boxing day so I'll pick one up over there as a late birthday present to myself.

Seems bizarre - 1520 and 2520 are probably focus at the moment.

I haven't seem many 1020s around...

Maybe it is due for replacement soon. But surely something like the 925, despite not having the full fat 41MP, is still a serious contender for best smartphone camera. It's not like Nokia just said screw it, we have done camera's now and started putting in 5mp Huawei spec cameras.

I can confirm it is definitely still available. Not sure why the GenI client manager has told you this.

Gen-i still have the 1020 in range. There was a brief stock out recently, but no issues currently as far as I'm aware.

Bugga, I opted for a lesser phone as my contract renewal was up. Telecom seem to be the only ones with them in NZ, and I'm not swapping from VF as it will cost me nearly 3x as much per month, I wonder if the Harvery Norman ones work on VF?

Any Lumia 1020 will work on all of the 3G mobile networks in NZ regardless of the retailer you purchase it from in the country.




Do whatever you want to do man.

KiwiNZ: Harvey Norman have them listed


Harvery Norman lists as "Telecom", which I'm guessing have Telecom hacks through it like my LG and Sony?
