    Is there any difference in price? Work pays for my monthly phone contract, but I just bought the Lumia 900 6 months ago. Not sure how welcoming they will be to upgrading my phone through the carrier so soon even if I pay at this point (waiting on official pricing first).

    I may be better off buying the phone 3rd party. Is there typically a price difference of unlocked vs locked? I'd imagine carrier locked may be cheaper?

    Prefer the Lumia 920, but sounds like it will cost more and HTC is offering $175 on the Lumia900 via their trade up program. The 8x seems just as good minus a few features.

    You can easily add $300-400 for unlocked, though I have seen close to $500 more.

    I tend to find that Amazon has the best price on unlocked devices.

    $500? Where is that? Is the phone made from gold? Or is it a special phone like that Porsche design black berry?

    You must be joking. Your carrier subsidies it that's why its so cheap. The full price is generally above 500.

    I agree. it's also worth it to check prices at NewEgg, MobileCityOnline and eBay, but Amazon seems to be the best place right now.
