    Does anyone know when exactly in January the 20% off ends? And I assume if you're buying off contract then the actual physical MS retail store is the only way (not online) to get that deal?

    Until Jan/02/2012. Yea seems like only at retail stores. For some reason, none of the att handsets are on the stores website.

    Thanks. Yeah, I noticed the missing AT&T phones on their site so I figured as much.

    Ugh, I'm in north FL so the closest retail store is in Atlanta looks like.

    So $549 off contract from AT&T, same as the Focus S. Does anyone suspect the AT&T version cut corners to achieve that price?

    To put this all to rest, I happen to work in an ATT store and generally, like 90% of the time we will match online pricing for smartphones. Also as far as unlimited data goes, in store you always are allowed to keep the unlimited data no matter what as long as it is a smartphone you are going to, sometimes the online process does not give the option for some reason.

    Can you tell us what happens if we order a Titan today (say, online) and want to get a credit next Saturday? Is it possible? Online? CSR? AT&T store?

    The CSR told me I wouldn't be able to return it and re-buy because it takes a few days for the system to recognize a return, and the sale would be over by then.

    I just asked on the online chat and she/he told me that I have to order on that day to get that price. No price adjustments on special limited time sales. For $199 savings I am not chancing it. Will be setting my alarm for very early.

    Just double checked. All deals start at 12:00am. So I guess I just need some beers for Friday night and watch some late night TV till it starts.

    EDIT: Its EST so thats only going to be 10pm for me where I will be. Great news. Yay. Now, no one better snipe me out of one or I will kill the entire internets.



    This could quite possibly be the longest week of my life. :(

    Is anyone worried about the fact that it says "Windows 7" devices? I checked their website and based on the prices for netbooks, they are all under $100 already and seem better candidates for a penny sale, vice a $200 WP7 phone that just came out...

    I'm pretty sure they mean WP7 since all deals require a voice plan. Netbooks wouldn't require a voice plan.

    I have the same question. I know the one of the European titan versions will not support the at&t hspa+ at&t band.

    interested in the sale but on the old data plan. What happens to people on the old smartphone data plan? I would prefer unlock version with tethering support.

    Looks like you might be right... i just went to the AT&T website and looked under the penny sale... there were no Windows Phones, but there was an acer netbook for a penny. Could dozens of news sources really have gotten this wrong?

    I hope they got it right. I wouldn't put it past some AT&T rep to not know the difference between Windows 7 and Windows Phone, but for now I will trust the official AT&T news release. I am surprised by some bloggers that should know the difference did not catch this. I think these bloggers owe it to their readers to clarify this until it is confirmed by AT&T. Until then I will hope the sale is real but won’t be disappointed this weekend if I find out it is after all a netbook sale.

    So since this is an HSPA+ phone, you cant complete an upgrade without selecting a 4G plan, for us grandfathered unlimited users. How do we bypass this? I tried an online upgrade 2 weeks ago and you cannot keep your unlimited plans if you do it online.

    Too bad they arent still offering free overnight shipping. Edit: Just noticed it does say free shipping. Nothing about what method though.
    For whatever its worth a sales rep at the ATT store here in Ft Smith told me grandfathered data plans will stay grandfathered in now that may be wrong but thats what he said that they dont do that anymore maybe thats just in store maybe you have to use the live chat if they still have that onluine like they used to a dialog box would pop up in the online store to talk with a real person to assist in the purchase!

    My local ATT store guys said the grandfathered data plan can be kept. Maybe hes wrong maybe its only instore or amybe you need to call in or chat with the assistant thing if they still have that!

    Ah screw it. I just placed an online order with a 50% off coupon I found. Still a good savings and if this $0.01 thing is real, I may still have a shot on Saturday.

    I'm also irked because it said my wife's number isn't eligible for portability...grrr.

    Restrictions, say "new activation required", so I am assuming using an upgrade is not going to work here? any other interpretations.
    Neibl - I can't find this restriction. Where did you see it? Can you provide a link? I was planning on using an upgrade for this.

    Just over two weeks ago, I was looking to see if I could upgrade to the Samsung Focus S. I bought my original Focus on November 8, 2010. When I checked online, it said I could upgrade to a new WP7 phone. I went to check today, in preparation for Saturday, and the only upgrade AT&T's website says I can have is for an iPhone. No option for a WP7.

    Has AT&T revoked the early upgrade for WP7 users? Anybody else (that go a WP7 in the US when it was released last year) able to see an upgrade option?
