    It is exactly 2 hours before the T-Mobile launch of the 925... and there is not a trace of ANYTHING 925 on their website. I am so disappointed with this launch. I will be picking up two 925s at my local shop, but this is a joke for everyone that doesn't check WPC religiously, like myself.

    I stopped at my nearest TMo store Monday. A very small store, but they said they've got 11 for sale starting the 17th. The WP (aka Nokia) display was up with a 521 (they said a good seller) and a 925. The accessories rack included screen protectors and third-party protective cases for the 925, but no charging backs. No signage in the windows for any Windows Phone. I want the phone, but the total lack of marketing by anyone has me second guessing.

    Chatted with a rep (out of the country, I'm sure) who said the Xperia Z had a landing page because it had LTE. I then told him the 925 had LTE as well. =/

    Good grief.

    I stopped by the downtown Seattle T-Mobile stir today and they didn't have a dummy they could show me. The way they talked, I think they had a working unit, but were not allowed to shoe that to me. Also stopped at the Microsoft kiosk store a block away, and they didn't have I yet and seemed a bit confused about launch date.

    Its good to FINALLY see the 925 on the site. Too bad we can't order online and have it waiting to pick up in the morning.

    you can order it. I just completed my order. I am probably going to cancel and go to the store since the Free one day shipping only applies to new customers

    Off to a great start -_-

    I went to place my order and everything went fine until the last step. I got an error, saying that the order couldn't be processed. A few minutes later, I checked my bank account balance, and I'd been charged for the Lumia. So I have no idea if I have a phone coming or not.

    I don't think you can unlock it immediately however! There is a waiting time period before one can apply for the unlocking code.

    After weeks of anxiously waiting, I am going to the Tmo store to purchase my 925. The same store that told me yesterday they didn't know anything about the phone and why would I want it anyway. The same store that said they didn't have any in stock so I shouldn't show up there this morning expecting to buy one. Wait! Why am I going to that store to buy one this afternoon? I reckon' I must really want that phone and willing to put up with a terrible launch of the Lumia 925. Nokia should have a sit-down with T-Mobile. Horrible support of this product and their customers.

    This morning I talked to a Tmo rep about a question on my bill and decided I would ask her about the 925. To my utter amazement she not only knew about it, she was an enthusiastic windows phone user and was really excited because she was going to get the 925 asap--she also mentioned WP Central as the best place to get news about WP! She literally changed my mind about getting the phone--if you are reading this, thanks again, Maria! It was weirdly heartwarming to find another person who loves windows phone--we definitely had a little moment there.

    One more comment, then I am going to buy my 925. T-Mobile has this phone buried so deep on their site, you have to hunt to find it. Not listed in the "new phone" section at all or offered on their home-page. Seriously, it's ridiculous.

    A sucker had to know, so I just went on T-Mo's website, and had no problem finding the 925 or 521. Both are on the "smartphone" and "4G" sections as pretty as you please, although on page 2 of the "smartphones".

    If only T-Mo was in my area.......

    Sigh. Stupid AT&T.

    i stopped by the Tmobile store here san diego (la mesa) and sure enough they had the 925. lady said (katie), she just got 1 last night and didn't get fully to play with it yet. she was nice enough to let me play with her cellular though. she even had the nokia red cover (red is ugly) on it. the store didn't have the nokia covers or wireless chargers for sale though but she was guessing maybe next week. i was very impressed by it, so light and thin even with the cover. and the screen is much better than my 920.

    Katie, i hope ur reading this. thx for help.
    she's a WP lover. ja ja...

    I called a local tmo store and asked if they had any in stock. After a very long pause, the guy gets back on the phone and grunts an affirmative.

    So, I went to the store and found it next to the 521 under a sign that said. "Blackberry."

    At least they didn't try to talk me out of buying one.
