    Since we are all anxiously awaiting the availability of the 950XL, I figured we could start a thread that would allow us to share availability of preorders

    Just placed mine minutes ago. White 950Xl incoming. Will be my first real experience since the 920. (Had a 930 for a few days plagued with issues) Hoping i made the right choice. I actually had a Sony Z5P on pre-order but I contacted the store and changed it to this.

    Just placed black xl in ms store. They told me it was actually available for pre-order online for minutes after the launch announcement but sold out immediately. I checked didn't see it.

    I'm excited for it.


    Will rock the m8 win until then.

    How can I place a pre-order if there is no store near me?!?!?!

    I want MS to take my money NOW!

    It doesn't even say coming soon on their site:

    Does anyone know any retailer on-line taking pre-orders for the XL dual sim?!

    You could try calling. My nearest MS store is about an hour away. When the Band came out, they technically couldn't take pre-orders or add to the waitlist over the phone, but with a little friendliness and persuasion I eventually had a Band saved for me.

    EDIT: Nevermind. Just looked at where you are located. Don't think you have any other option than waiting it out.

    I pre-ordered a white one. Not sure if I'll actually buy it - the viability of the ecosystem and lack of apps is still an issue. But I probably will, and figured I'd add a pre-order so MS can at least gauge interest.

    Are you guys preordering in a MS Store? Their website only has an option to email when available

    Link please? I can't find any such link on the 950 XL dual sim product page.

    Why would MS announce a product and make it so damn difficult to place a pre-order?!

    I pre-ordered at a Microsoft Store. I think they may have a deal right now where they're taking pre-orders for $0. When she initially did it, it came up as a $25 charge to pre-order so she went and asked (the signage said $0) and they had to do an override.

    You guys are killing me, I would pay 100% cash right now to pre-order one if I could :( Then just have it shipped to my address once available.

    No. MS doesn't have any physical stores where I live (Sweden) only a web store and that says coming soon. I placed my order through a different retailer that has already started taking pre-orders. I actually emailed them this morning about availability and they said they where waiting for information from MS, a couple of hours later they emailed me again asking if I would like a black or white one.

    Physical Microsoft stores. The demo units are "NAM CV" with dual SIM. RM-1116 is the model number.

    I meant online, no store near me...thanks for the exact model # tho! Was that a 32GB model by chance?

    Doesn't seem like you can take pre orders online just yet.

    Unfortunately there aren't that many Microsoft Stores where people live.

    Pre-ordered both of them yesterday night at the store near my home. The charge shows up initially and then they get their internal CS Rep to reset it to zero. You are not charged until you go to pick up the device.

    Ditto. I'm serious ****-hurt that MS is not allowing us to do it online. This is a MAJOR fail for them to accurately gauge interest.

    Wow, Microsoft is really making it hard to get the XL. What is their deal. Just have it at all carriers and big box stores, my god.

    When you say both are you including the 950? If so, I think I'm going to preorder it. Was at the Microsoft store just today and saw the 950 XL, but not the 950. Not having to pay to pre-order is nice.

    Wish they would have gone the Moto X Pure route. They have it available in Best Buy on display and for purchase unlocked. I don't get what MS is trying to accomplish by limiting the ways you can get it.
