I am a huge WP7 fan and have a website dedicated to it. I have had almost every Windows Phone on AT&T.
I pre-ordered the Lumia 900 and never got shipping information. Luckily I received the phone on Friday. On Sunday I started getting data issues and the phone is now just a brick until a fix. I am also having battery issues where my phone is lucky to last half the day on light use. I ordered a replacement phone through AT&T Premier over the phone and they said they would overnight it to me. I didn't get the phone in today so I called and they said it is back ordered for 2 weeks....None of the stores even near me carry a Cyan Lumia 900 so I am **** out of luck. I have NEVER had so much problem with a carrier and a phone before. I am extremely disappointed in this "flagship" device and the lack of training the AT&T people received. I almost want to just ditch the phone for the Titan 2 because I had no problems with my original Titan. :mad:

As it is right now, I really like the phone, just my battery life is horrid. I know others have said they have great battery life, but just doing simple things like reading Twitter and Facebook (using the official apps, not the People app) and email and I can barely last a full day (I get about 8-9 hours).
Other than that, my AT&T experience has been good.

I started having the data issue today all of a sudden. I input the APN fix and notice, at that time, my battery seemed to take a bit of a hit. Not sure he much but will see how it does tomorrow.
The day before, with heavy usage (text, twitter, Facebook, forum reading, we browsing, live tiles updating and 3 email accounts syncing every 15 minutes) that I got about 9 hours before I needed to charge it. Today "felt" like less and I didn't feel like I was doing much.
Those having battery issues, are you also having data issues that you e applied some sort of temporary fox for, like the APN fix? Just curious...

No battery issues for me at all...so far. Coming from my Inspire that would get 4 hours before needing a charge, I can can go all day usually 8 AM till 11 PM or 12 AM without having to charge this phone. In fact, I am usually above 50% at that point if I am to believe the phone. Yesterday I streamed music for at least 2-3 hours and made several phone calls, live tile updates, facebook, a bit of twitter, newsy, Pulse, and read about 200 emails and replied to or forwarded about 50 of those.
I have been so happy with this battery lasting so much longer than my Inspire battery. I did have a couple issue with my data connection dropping my music stream and that has happened the last 2 days in a row.
