    I called them and -they- show the phone releasing the 12th. Well we all know that is incorrect since ATT will have them tomorrow, but what it means is they have a delayed pre-order (probably in deference to ATT), or maybe not even a pre-order at all since we only have Friday left this week.

    For those of you wanting a better price on this, I'd wait until Monday to see what Amazon offers.

    A better price and possibly a better experience, the ATT online ordering system is a hit or miss thing.

    My q as well. I assume they will. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

    That's a good point about waiting until Monday, but do you think it could be any cheaper than it is now for off contract or 2 year contract? It really seems low priced now, but who knows.

    with the 900, Amazon offered in $50 cheaper than ATT when it was available. They also ran some brief super contract deals. I'm not looking for that, but if they offer it less than the $449 no commitment price it will be a better deal than ATT for sure.

    It might be lower, but even if it is the same price, paying no tax, and having the no hassle return policy and great service from Amazon is worth it imo, if you dont need the free charger(I had 3 Lumia 900's at one time when it launched due to various issues...still need to write a letter thanking the rep who handled everything, and called personally to follow up with things)

    Now, if they dont offer a free charger, then ATT would be a better deal..for those like me, buying off contract, we dont get a free charger apparently, so no biggie.

    I, against my better judgement, tried ordering from ATT just b/c I wanted the free charger, but it was only for new customers, or upgrades, which the press release didnt say.

    Cant wait for Amazon to get it.

    I will try Amazon. At least they can guarantee a shipping date and stick to it. Worth a lot in my book.

    They have unlocked Lumia 900s but I am not sure if those were added after the AT&T exclusive ended.

    this launch seems to be going a little differently. When the 900 launched it was available for preorder from both Amazon and ATT. Amazon offered it 30-50 cheaper on contract...I do not recall what the off contract price was. I hope though Amazon is at least $449 no commitment, but if they do $449 and throw in maybe a $30 gift card or something to sweeten the deal ( I use Amazon all the time so GC would work) I'll go with them. After reading that the music management situation is as deplorable on WP8 as it is W8 though, I'm willing to wait until a real deal comes.

    I emailed AmazonWireless asking about the availability of Lumia 920, below is the reply:

    "I'm sorry that I don't know when we'll be carrying that great new Nokia Lumia 920 phone, except to say we'll carry it eventually and as you seem to know already at a price lower than the carrier website and carrier store.

    If it is possible for you, I would suggest just waiting to see when we do get it. It may not be too long."

    Not sure how long is "not be too long", but seems like they will offer a better price

    i'm inclined to do so as well to avoid paying taxes but i'm interested in knowing whether AT&T's free wireless charger excludes the purchaser from receiving Nokia's free wireless charger. i ask because if you can get a wireless charger from both Nokia and AT&T then the tax from buying a no-commitment phone from AT&T should be $20 or so less than paying full retail for wireless charger.

    I've been monitoring Amazon since midnight. Nothing on being able to order the Lumia 920 yet; just a few accessories available. :@

    Here's their response from last night. Perhaps he confused off-contract with unlocked.



    My email
    --------------------------
    I would like to purchase a red AT&T Lumia 920 off-contract from Amazon Wireless. I recognize that it was only released on Friday but online retailers such as the Microsoft Store and Wal-Mart already have it available for purchase.

    When do you anticipate Amazon Wireless will have this phone available? If it’s not this week I will give my business to the Microsoft Store as they are willing to price match AT&T’s price of $449.00 off-contract.

    Thank you for your assistance.







    Amazon's response
    --------------------

    Hello XXXX,

    We don't currently have release date information for the AT&T Lumia 920 as an off contract phone (this will be found on Amazon.com, instead of AmazonWireless).

    While we receive new phones often, it's difficult for us to predict when a specific phone will be available. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and encourage you to check back periodically for the AT&T Lumia 920. As soon as we have more information for this phone it will be posted on our website. I'm sorry I was not able to give you any additional information.

    We look forward to seeing you again soon.

    Best regards,

    Aaron C.
