    Because we have already seen Best Buy and Ebay/BBY open preorders for $149 and on Nokia's on 920 page they had a picture showing a phone that said $149 AT&T
    Problem is that Best Buy/Ebay is not a reliable source for pricing information anyway, as most third parties price their devices differently than the corporate stores. That's the advantage to buying at a third party store like Best Buy, Target, Ebay, RadioShack, Amazon, etc. Heck Best Buy already screwed up with the pre-orders, so there is no reason to trust them at this point.

    I would have expected the phone to be more expensive than $149 from AT&T since Best Buy normally prices their devices less than what the corporate stores do.

    And that site could certainly be a placeholder for a price that has yet to be determined. Maybe Nokia saw the same prices from Best Buy and just threw that price on the site because they believe the price like a lot of us do.

    I hope they are both wrong, and I hope it is $99 like some people are reporting. That would be some aggressive pricing right there. With a charging pad, that's a steal for one of the best phones on the market.

    At $199 I would get it for my wife's birthday and get mines at the end of the month.

    At $149 I would still get it for her birthday and use the remaining $50 for some accessory. And still get mine at the end of the month.

    At $99 I would get it for her birthday AND get mines at the same time!!

    Most people here and on Reddit were told $149 today by people at our local AT&T sites. This is the only guy who has ever mentioned the $99 price.

    Yeah, I've seen the $149 way more often, and that's still a sweet price, I just really hope it's $99, that'd be even sweeter.

    I'm buying it at any price point really. I don't care how much it is, I just want AT&T to say something officially.

    I highly doubt it would be $99. That would be way too insane.

    Here's hoping for insanity!

    149 is the closest because even Nokia released a mobile link which will show pricing with the wp8 UI and AT&T is named in there, now as for availability I am not sure I called the store and they have no idea, disappointing I need to sell my iPhone 5 for the Lumina, tired of carrying phones that are so light that feels low quality, I miss to have some heft, plus the additional features are just the icing on the cake.

    I'll be the first to admit I could be wrong. However I got this information from several stores - not one - several.

    I couldn't believe the price either when I first heard it and even asked "Are you sure that isn't for the 820?" Each rep stated no - that it was for the 920.

    I HOPE I'm right - but I'm prepared to pay $50 more if I'm wrong.

    I do have the names of each of the reps though for ammo when I go pick mine up. :)

    So I just talked with a rep at our local AT&T store in Colorado and he looked it up on his computer and confirmed 11/9 date for the 920s!!!
    He also confirmed that they will be $99 with a free black wireless charger!
    No preorders according to him. He also confirmed black, white, red, and yellow colors!

    if this comes out at $99 coupled with the charget pad that would be a great deal and would seriously undercut the other devices. im prepared to pay $149 just in case

    ATT might have a $99 + Charge pad promo like some have said, like when the Lumia 900 was $0 for a few days. Best Buy price might be different.

    And when we find out it's $149, we will have people crying about it not being $99 now.

    It's still looking like if you want yellow or cyan you won't be able to get one on the 9th. So lame.

    Why don't you check in with your brother-in-law about the price ?

    Surely he could either confirm or deny ?

    He's on the other side of the country and it's his daughter/my niece's first birthday. And he only told me anything because I pretended to not know/care about the phone. I don't talk to him often.

    Take this FWIW, but my local Best Buy just slipped up on the phone and said they received their shipment of the phone but did not count it into stock yet. (As long as she was not confusing 920 with the 900.)

    Friday/Sunday sound like they could be a safe bet.

    I'm still holding out hope that on Friday morning when I get there I can get cyan. I'll settle for red or black depending on what's available.

    I'm not a huge fan of a black phone (everyone has black) but unless it's a "order today, get it Monday" for Cyan I'm probably not holding out. In the end the color is the least important aspect to me.

    Much more important is selecting the location for the bonfire that will consume my current Android pile of dog****.

    Something would have had to have changed then because they said yellow and cyan and one other color would only be online.

    I am not settling for any color though. I will wait for Cyan if I have to.

    I won't be so upset about BB cancelling my preorder if I can get a white 920 in store on Friday with a free charging pad I will be happy. That was the only thing I was disappointed about after ordering the 920 2 weeks ago. It was disheartening seeing retailers giving away free accessories with purchase.

    $99? Last-minute price change? Or just misinformation? Is that why there was no price at the launch? Does this mean $49 at Amazon?

    So many questions ... Friday too far away!

    For now ... it's fun to speculate .... why the heck would they do $99?
