    Free Continuum docks on the house. This buys them another 7 days :)
    My thoughts exactly. I was ready to head to pickup the S6 Edge plus today but then read that last night. I'm in.

    That's funny I was just getting on to say I think I can relax now. We are close enough and the weeks go by fast. Who all has already preordered?

    Always remember.... with Android you have to "force close" apps. You don't want that in your life, trust me.

    Quite typical that mid range or flagship uses nano sim while low end uses micro sim. True for Android phones as well. Probably something to do with cost.
    That can make sense but the 550 also uses nano sim, so maybe this is something might vary on the phone itself.

    I have preordered (MS kiosk for $0) and am ready to go and purchase my 950 xl. Looking forward to using it during my Thanksgiving break, taking pictures and videos of the family.

    I am beyond ready too. If they call me during my work day I may have to get my coworker/friend to take me to the MS store for lunch. I wish I had time left I would take Friday off. Lol my husbands family is having a being party Saturday and I want to explore my phone while they bowl. I guess I should participate a bit. I will try.

    So what's with the pricing. $649 for the XL and about $200 for complete puts us at around $900 for everything after taxes with the included dock.

    And that's wasn't always good enough, I hated how apps would rerun in the background even after force stopping them, "Music" for one drove me crazy, it can't be uninstalled or frozen short of Rooting, it constantly ran in the background with my Note 4.. Funny how hard old habits are tough go break, I still find myself holding the back button and swiping away past apps on my 640XL...

    Complete costs 200.00 for the 950 xl? It was only 100.00 for my Surface 3.

    Yeah, I doubt its that much. If they charge $200 for complete on the Lumia, I would just get squaretrade or something instead.

    Yeah I bought complete for my Lumia 830 earlier this year and it was 100 bucks. I found out a few weeks ago that since Microsoft EOL'd the 830, I can pay the $50 deductible and get a 950. Looks like as soon as the MS store carries the 950 I'll have both!

    Well the market doesn't sit still. It was still quite common that for the past year that entry level phones would still uses micro sim, I guess now that either the component prices has either come down enough and/or that the mobile industry has decided that it's just better to settle en mass on nano sim that it now makes sense to standardize across the board. Perhaps one factor is that since Apple only uses nano sim (afterall it's their standard) which had really driven the price down for those components. Another could be that the carriers only want to stock nano sims so best to adopt to that.

    So between refreshing the MS page every five minutes and reading threads here, I'm deciding on accessories and covers. I found a wallet/case that I want to buy, but they don't ship to North America. Has anyone here done business with Golla? and Does anyone have any ideas for alternatives (maybe a UK distributor that will ship to NA?)?

    Longtime Windows phone owner (Titan, Focus S, Titan 2, 900, 1520, 640, etc) but second time poster..

    My work gives me the option of having my phone 100% paid for if I switch to their plan. Does AT&T still do contracts or do they make you pay 20-30 a month on top of your bill for the phone? I'm fine with either option because as long as the cost is in my monthly bill, work will pay. My concern is that if I'm buying from the Microsoft store will that option be available or are all their phones sold outright for full retail value?

    If you purchase at the Microsoft store you have to pay in full by way of cash or credit.

    The continuum dock fine print says "between 11/25/15 and 1/31/16", so i'm not sure how that would point to a Nov 20th release date.

    Click through the the actual .PDF: http://dri1.img.digitalrivercontent....US_ENGLISH.pdf

    It says the 20th. That and it makes no sense that ATT would start on the 20th but MS wouldn't start until the 25th.
