I'd be surprised if cpwh make us wait until September as the world and his mate will be able to get hold of it by then...

I suspect it will be available sim free within days...

I'm due for an upgrade - will prob get a deal with 3 on an old phone (maybe 6680 \6280 the all the minutes\texts for 15 quid for 12 or 18 months and buy the phone..

As you can see 2weeks and 2 days later the price has dropped 136 quid..

I really sympathise with the poor sods that bought it "first"....

Who knows another couple of weeks and 3 will be bringing it out "free"

Most net suppliers have a good stock supply .. surprised Carphonewarehouse and phones4u are behind releaseing it, given all the revenue they'll be loosing..

Hi guys,
Just cancelled my contract with tmobile after two years with a sony erricson p900,

I am now going to buy a nokia n93 through www.mobileshop.com on 02 contract
Never bought a phone through third party like this before. Done my research though on forums and they get good right ups. So fingers crossed they will be able to come up with the goods!

cheers
Aidan

Aidan.
I bought my n93 on O2 contract from the mobile shop last thursday! Arrived on Saturday. I phoned them and found that the website is incorrectly listing pre-order and they're working on changing that.
It'll arrive unlocked/unbranded!

What's the cheapest sim-free price now? I've seen it for 489.89 at Direct Mobile Accessories: http://www.directmobileaccessories.c...oducts_id=3966

However, I'm thinking of holding out on the purchase until the next firmware version is released.

Mobileshop is expensive... but "do" have it in stock i guess..

www.foneplanet.com also have them in stock slightly cheaper, though www.onestopphoneshop.com and thephonespot are the cheapest around but run out of stock.. will save you a small fortune if you are prepared to wait..


These contract prices have remained static since the phone was release on the 24th July - would expect the deals to get better soon..., however given Nokia "still" havn't officially released the phone in the UK (i.e to buy off their website) dealers will be classing it still as a new phone..

A few power sellers are selling them on ebay a "bit" cheaper, below is an example...

Doh!,
Wished i had checked back on this forum before ordering my phone on www.mobileshop.com. Wished i had done what u did simon, and just give o2 a ring. ahh well.

Im kinda happy with the deal i got anyway.
I got the phone for £249.99 with an o2 contract for 125+ 100 free sms.
249 not loads bad i dont think. Its only an extra 50 more than i paid for my p900 when i got that.

Im looking to join a forum that has all the latest info on n93. am i in the right place? was using esato.com before but i am no longer a sony kid! am now a nokia kid!

If I buy a phone from eBay, and assuming it is UK stock with a UK IMEI, then would I be able to have it repaired at Nokia Service Centres within the 12-month guarantee period in the same manner that store-bought phones can be repaired?

B4UTele.com are seliing it for 429.99 with 512mb memory card.
http://www.b4utele.com/?function=DIS...&productid=456 , however they seem a bit dodgy:
