    Thanks for letting me know Asurion isn't a part of MS, I HAD NO CLUE.
    The point is that since no phone of near quality/value has been replaced they can't offer me anything, THAT IS MICROSOFTS fault 100%.
    You are delusional. It's NOT Microsoft's fault they don't continue to make every phone they or Nokia ever did so you can have one later. I have a 1978 Trans Am WS6 I ordered new. If it ever gets washed out to sea in a tsunami, I suppose you think it will be Pontiac's fault that I can't get a replacement. Microsoft has zero responsibility. You have an insurance contract with Asurion, not Microsoft. Or are you just putting us on?

    They had 4-5 devices for display. They still do - you can go there and play with it as much as you want.
    It is the perfect phone i ever held in my hand.
    They also have a working continuum dock!

    Sounds like this is Asurion's fault, not Microsoft's. If they can't find a phone to replace the 1520, why can't they just give you the money instead? That's what car insurance companies do when you total your car - since it costs more to repair than what it's worth, they just give you the money. It's not Microsoft's/the car manufacturer's fault that they don't make equivalent products that the insurance company can substitute for.

    I am wondering if you think that, if you bought an iPhone 4s two years ago, that assurion would give you a 6s now. I really doubt it.

    I have spent many hours the last few days talking with ATT + Asurion and they all say there is nothing more they can do if I want to stay on windows phone because there is no option that is equal to the 1520.
    All they say is I I can find one in a ATT store and pay full retail they will refund minus deductible and ATT can't find a store with one, eBay isn't allowed by asurion their corporate rep told me over phone
    I paid full retail for 1520, no other lower grade WP is acceptable.
    I Should just hold out til 950 drops and then demand that as replacement, but that could be next year or get cancelled like McLaren I can't have faith in MS anymore
    No point in having insurance when they wont support the phone.
    You wreck a Tesla and the insurance only wants to give you value of a Hyundai Elantra you wouldn't be happy either.

    "One of my 1520's broke, Asurion has NO REPLACEMENTS and will only offer 640xl or HTC.
    imagine offering an iPhone customer an HTC as a replacement."

    Not the best comparison-if you want iOS, you aren't going to be happy with anything other than iPhone, as that's the only package it presently comes in. In terms of hardware, with the exception of the camera, the HTC M8 For Windows is a match for the regular iPhone 6 and has the SD 801 where the 1520 has the SD 800.

    I don't think anyone would argue with that. But its silly for the OP to blame an uninvolved 3rd party for his problem. Microsoft has no obligation to give the OP any phone at all. Its the OP's chosen insurance company who won't give him the phone he wants. The insanity is blaming Microsoft 100% for something Microsoft has zero percent responsibility for. The responsibility is between the OP and the insurance company. If the insurance company is not living up to the contract its on them. If the OP didn't read the policy before paying for it and the policy allows a substitution of a lesser phone, the OP shares some responsibility.

    The surface and Microsoft band pre-orders were ready right away because the surface and Microsoft band teams are competent. Windows phone didn't earn its 3% market share by being managed well.

    I'm still seeing "Coming soon, unfortunately not yet. Keep your eyes open and subscribe for notification" on Microsoft's page. Anybody hear anything about Verizon getting the 950?

    That's a popular conspiracy - Microsoft killing it's own platform for god knows what reason.
    Doesn't pay off
    The new CEO is a fan of android
    Microsoft is buying apple
    Google has bought someone inside WP devision to fail this platform on purpose

    I just got an email saying that if I preorder, in Europe, it would be shipped out NO LATER than Nov. 28th. So, before Nov. 28th or the 28th itself.

    I got the pre-order email in the UK at 1am last night. It said 3rd december delivery date I think, but as the web page loaded it flicked to "email me when in stock" so they are already sold out.

    Same here. I can't believe they are already sold out. I think the site hasn't been updated. I went on as soon as I got the email.

    Or they were making sure windows 10 mobile were running great on these phones but you know what, were Windows Central. Let's just assume the worst :)

    Partially yes, but again it's MS that does not have anything else to offer for sale. I think you would agree that MS should have kept the 930 for sale at least, until the two new phones arrive.

    On their Facebook page they said they would be "available starting in November in select markets". First response I actually ever got on their FB page.

    I could have pre-ordered the white ones at 7am but I wasn't sure about the colour so I didn't, they were gone in an hour when I checked back.

    The incompetence surrounding WP's management isn't a conspiracy, its fact.

    I'm planning to order a black one, but if only white is available, I'll get that. Since it's easy to swap out the back covers, I plan on buying whatever back cover color I don't get originally in addition. I have white, black and blue for my 640 XL and swap them out every week or so when I feel like I need something 'fresh'.

    Same here, then I went to the store on Monday, super excited to get my new phone (especially since I'm still hanging on to my almost dead 920 after nearly 3 years), and was told that only the Surfaces were released October 26 and there was no release date yet for the phones. I'd also ordered 2 Bands, but at least those have been given an official release date.
