    Why are we still waiting for at$t to announce the 640xl release date? They've had the "coming soon" page up over a month. This is becoming ridiculous!!

    Yeah, I am annoyed as well. Assuming late May release. It seems the LTE versions of the 640 XL aren't shipping many places (if at all) yet. Just the 3G versions at places like Expansys. I have an LTE pre-ordered at Expansys but would prefer the AT&T variant as the international LTE variants won't get LTE on AT&T.

    I'm very interested in a large windows phone since I owned a 1520. That phone was too big for me but I thought WP on a big screen was fantastic. MS is losing a sale here, I've been with android for a year and a half and am looking to buy WP NOW!! Had WP for two years prior, since 920 release. Have a onetouch idol3 5.5" on preorder but I would cancel that to pick up the 640xl, but noooooo!

    My local store told me the Microsoft guy was there a few days ago and said the phone will be out on May 15th.

    I wish this thing would hurry up and get released. Considering giving up my iPhone 6 for this because my old eyes can't deal with small screens anymore and I'm not paying $850 for a phone again, ever.

    I just bought the 640 XL off of Expansys-USA and it works on AT&T LTE, at least in New Jersey. I'm very happy. haha

    Yep, the one I received was the 640 XL LTE Dual SIM, and I only selected the 640 XL.

    I just talked to At&t, they said they are working out the quirks of their network and will have it done soon. If you start holding your breath now, you wont die until the release. LOL

    But seriously, i am waiting too.

    Out of curiosity, what are they referring to that will be done soon?

    It was just a joke. But I am assuming they tested it on their network and found some bugs.

    Just an fyi....
    I can vouch for what enixon is saying about the 640 XL. I'm using my brand new 640 XL on AT&T with 4G speeds that are comparable to the speeds I'm getting on my AT&T 1520. I'm very pleased with the phone, and actually plan on selling my 1520 now...if things continue to go well. I was skeptical at first, but the 5.7 inch screen is a really nice size.

    I have no problems with the screen. If you have seen the 630/635's screen, then you've seen a pretty bad screen. The 640 XL's screen, in my opinion, is on par or slightly better than the 1320's screen...way better than anything 635 or below. I have no idea what the specs are on each, as I'm not really a spec guy. I'm just going by what I see when I line them up side by side. I will say that you will notice a little jaggedness around text on some websites or in articles, but not always, for whatever reason. But, it's really not a deal breaker for me because I don't spend hours reading using my phone....emails, news, texting mostly. Just to let you know, i also own the 1520, and love that screen, so I'm familiar with the best screen WP has to offer as well. I took a shot in the dark when I ordered this phone, and am very highly pleased. My only complaints are: On-screen navigation buttons, no dedicated camera button, and somewhat show battery charge time, especially when using random chargers/cables. This phone really likes its specific cable. I often get the "slow charging" warning when using other cables. Everything else about this phone is top notch. For the price, it's an excellent choice.

    If I can ask, what made you decide to get / stay with the 640 xl when you already had the 1520, is there really much difference in phone sizes? what does the 640 xl do better that would make you want to sell the 1520?

    Don't get me wrong...I love my 1520. It's a better phone than the 640 XL. However, as Guytronic can tell you, I have a habit of trying out a lot of phones. :) In my opinion, the only drawback to using the 1520 was its top-heaviness. I have large hands, and have no trouble using my 1520 with one hand. But, it always just felt unbalanced to me. I realize that everything about the 640 XL falls way short of the 1520, except for one thing...the ease at which it fits in my hand due to its design. It's almost the same size as the 1520, but it feels so much easier to hold. These are just my opinions though. But I really like the design direction they took with the 640 XL.

    Why sell my 1520??? Ha ha
    Well, it's time for something different...and my wife just found out where I hide all of my devices. :D

    I pretty much agree with this, like the phone much better than my 1320 (don't have a 1520 for comparison).

    I didn't care for the on screen navigation buttons at first, but I have gotten used to using them fairly quickly.

    The 640 XL is only about a 1/4" smaller in each direction than my 1320, but the size works much better for me (I don't have large hands).

    I agree. I'm quickly getting used to the on screen buttons.
