Just wondering what people are thinking in terms of off-contract pricing for the 925 on T-Mo. It seems like either Nokia or Microsoft are subsidizing the cost of the 920 on AT&T and the 928 on Verizon (each at $500 instead of $650+), so I'm really hoping this will be true with the 925.
I currently have the 8X and a Nokia wireless charger that I plan to sell prior to getting the 925, so if it ends up being $500, I think I can cover half the cost :D

for pricing - if we compare the off contract pricing of the 920 and 928 - both at 499 (at each launch date), then this 925 shouldnt be any more than 499 either.
WE lose 16GB of storage and wireless charging as features, but gain what is arguably a better camera (more lens)
Id put the pricing between 450 and 499.
That is for off contract - not unlocked....
@katamari201 - lets ask the question - which carrier do you use currently - and what phone do you use? Are you in a position to switch? Did you pay off contract or unlocked pricing for your previous phone?
Do you have anything positive to say about the Lumia 925?

The 920 was $449 off contract at launch. I know because I was this close to getting one. Edit: It's still $449.99, too.
Pricing should be around the same level, especially if the newest rumor about T-mobile getting the 32GB version is true.

I don't think the pricing will be that high for this device. Besides for me it doesn't matter the day this goes live on T-MO US I'm buying one to start. if the wife likes it I'll trade her L710 for one as well. Everyone has been hopping that at some point T-MO US would come in with a high end WP8 device. Well they now have, and it's looking like one heck of a device I don't think there is anything really to ***** about.

"The Lumia 925 is Nokia's latest Windows Phone, along with the Lumia 928 but many have been concerned that Vodafone appears to have the 32GB version of the Lumia 925, while everyone else has to deal with 16GB of internal storage. It's now come to light that T-Mobile will also be picking up the model with 32GB of storage, which will surely please many to know that it may not be that much of an exclusivity."
I guess T-Mobile execs read this website!
I am for sure going to buy it if it in the same ballpark in price as the 928 or 920 series.
Hooray for the consumer!

I'm going to go to crazy-ville for this answer, but I'm betting we won't see pricing under $549.99 on it. The 521 came out online at $129.88 at Wal-Mart and broke at T-Mobile today at $199.99! The 16GB Galaxy S IV is $629.99 and the S III is still listed at $549.99... I can't see this coming in any lower than $549.99... In fact, being a flag ship, it might even take on the HTC One at $579.99.
With it not being as popular of model, the cost will be higher as they have to purchase at a higher cost. I'd look for that $549.99 price out the door or $69.99 down and $20 a month for 24 months.

The latest podcast - Windows Phone Central 160 - Lumia 925, 928 and HTC woes | Windows Phone Central - says that T-Mobile will be selling the phone for $99, I'm assuming with a new activation. Usually they charge $20/mo for their installment plan, which would make the phone $579 total if that's the case.

You can get it for $99 on contract with T-Mobile or $499 for month to month. Not sure about no contract however? I sure it not going to be unlocked either. T-Mobile seems to not like to unlock their phones unlike AT&T! Coming out sometime in July too; probably the beginning!
I just found this out today(see above); when I was having happy hour and a T-Mobile store manager got off work and I purchase a couple of beers and we talked. The iPhone5 and Galaxy 4S are selling well. Windows is a loser according to him.
He just switch to the iPhone5 and is waiting for the next generation iPhone to come out! He never try a Windows phone!
