Good luck with $650. It took me 3 months to sell mine and I got just under $500 for it. These have low resale value unfortuantely.

Good luck to you if you can get $650 or above for your 920. You can buy them new from MobiCity for $520 here http://www.mobicity.co.nz/nokia-lumia-920.html

Had my lumia back for one week and it has developed yet another fault. The screen freezes and you can do anything other than use than hard button on the side, the screen remains unresponsive for sometimes minutes and sometimes hours. The amount of issues is now just ridiculous, when it works it has been an outstanding phone but the lack of reliability is just unacceptable.

As soon as I have half the chance to return it ill be taking it and getting something else. It will be sad because I do really like windows phone and the Nokia experience when things are working but such poor reliability is a killer for this device.

Does that happen when it's plugged in? Mine used to do that if it was plugged in, as soon as I unplugged, it was fine.

P.s do what a few of us have done and get an HTC One. ;)

I think you need to be prepared to pay GST on top of that $520 when buying from MobiCity.

Well I went the other way from an HTC One to a 920 and for me so far, the 920 is much better.

And having done the reciprocal (920 --> HTC One) I am torn, I love the One but do find myself missing a lot about the 920. WP8 on the 920 has such a polished and slick feel to it that even the androids finest can't reproduce, tbh I would go as far to suggest it is slicker than iOS

No it happens when unplugged and plugged in. I tried to get my money back but telecom told me it had to be sent back for repair and then nokia would make a call on repair or replacement. First chance I have to get my money back and get something else I will be taking it. Although I'm having difficulty deciding between Galaxy S4, HTC One, Sony Xperia Z, and iPhone 5 - but that's getting a little ahead of myself. The lumia has been my favourite smart phone, better than the iPhone and definitely the One X in my experience, it's just far to unreliable :(

I've tried most parallel importers too, claim it's instock but then they check and they can't them. Mobicity is out as well with no eta if any. And expansys is also out. The local telecom store refused to check other store stock and just stated they aren't getting anymore.

I guess the 925 is an option... unless you like colour and 32gb storage :( Plus it's still pretty expensive to get parallel imported
