    Just thought I would pass this along. HSN has the 521 for $99.95. It also comes with a colored wired headset, car charger and color case. If anyone was looking for a 521, this might be your chance

    May finally have to break down and get my wife one of these at this ridiculous price. She has been eyeballing my windows phone since I bought it on per-order from HSN for $149.

    Better the the price I got! You got to give it to HSN! I should of wait a couple of days and saved on the sales tax and about $12 less to boot!

    Incredible price. I wish I had got that when I bought it last month. No reason to not pick it up if you've been thinking about Windows Phone.

    I saw Daniel Rubino's tweet about this and had to snap one up. This'll make a great back up device for me while allowing exploration of Windows Phone's viability in my life. Killed two birds with one stone and I'm pretty excited to check out this device. I've read nothing but good things considering the price point.

    I own a 925, but bought one of these last night. Hell, it was $99. Too bad I didn't catch the coupon that made it $79. I may use this for a dealer line or... shoot I don't know. Heh.

    Unfortunately, it has now gone up to $119... seems odd to complain about that price. ;)

    Picked one up at $99.95, too bad I didn't get it early enough for the coupon to work. Looking forward to leaving Android behind and returning to the Windows environment. Haven't personally owned a Windows handheld device since my old Dell Axim X3i running Pocket PC.

    Has anyone activated the HSN purchased phone with T-Mobile's $30 plan or does that require a different SIM card than the one shipping with the device?

    You should be able to activate the 521 on the $30 plan with the SIM card that comes in the box. Just look for the $30 option when you activate the SIM on the website.

    Mine (well, my son's really) shipped yesterday, should be here Thursday. $79.99 + ~$13 for HSN protection plan = no brainer.

    Mine is still packaging. I'm glad you received yours, but I don't think I'll be doing business with hsn again.

    My order just shipped. Maybe hsn reads this forum. Most of all I am happy to be able to try a new device and platform. It can't be worse than my Omnia.

    My friend who has been using a Lumia 710 since early 2012 ordered one the other week. I have an 810 and a 920 and was even tempted to get one. At that price, it was difficult to resist.

    I think I'd be patient with HSN. While I understand your frustration with the delay, I'm sure they had thousands of orders this weekend with the $99 price.

    Yeah. I couldn't resist. I own an 810 and a 925 and my 521 just arrived today. Oops.
