    This is actually kind of infuriating. The phone is/has been released for preorder in the UK (and they even got a price cut already) and other countries in Europe but when are we getting it? My coworkers think I am crazy for being an IT guy ditching android and waiting for the 950.. The more silence the more I wonder if they are right.

    I over heard, Chuck Norris thought about getting an XL. At that same moment in time, a sudden felling of inpending doom struck the FCC and they approved.

    Preorderdered second day at ms store.
    Will be getting it with the original band I think as I don't see the value for an extra $120 to get the band 2.

    In the meantime ordered the Priv yesterday to keep me busy with a toy.
    Hate Google overseer but want to check out the mechanism on the phone itself.

    Can't wait for the 950xl.

    I hope they come out with spare batteries with charging docks at the same time they begin selling them!

    When we're they referred as fan phones?
    In Nadella's strategy and in conversations a few months back, he has stated that one of the categories would be for Windows "fans". The other categories are value, and business/enterprise, so the phone for the fans is going to be high end.

    Well I just saw they passed through the FCC today. Usually release dates are within a week or two after that based on my previous experience. I think it was just that MSFT didn't want the unpolished W10 being picked on by "reviewers" so they pulled them. In fact that's likely the reason for the slow fast ring builds..... making sure the new hardware is as tight as possible before release.

    Yeah, for the life of me I don't know why these phone manufacturers let carriers blind them into thinking exclusives are still viable. This isn't 2007 and the groundbreaking iPhone/AT&T era is over. I wished MS sold the 930 unlocked in their store with all GSM band support (LTE T-MO), I would have bought one off contract in a heartbeat.

    You're right, specifically Nadella said these were for "Windows Phone enthusiasts" .

    I wonder if those Mozo backs are real metal or "metal painted".
    The backs are polycarb. The metallic looking surrounds are a coating. The back face is real leather over the polycarb.

    Now what constitutes real leather in this day may not match yours or my definition. Like a Mustang I recently bought. Didn't decide to buy until too late to factory order and couldn't find exactly what I wanted on a lot even within 500 miles! So I ended up without leather seats. So I bought new leather takes offs from Roush (sp?) since they put their own custom leather in their cars. A local shop who installed them for me said PETA would be happy because he doubted Ford needed more than one cow to do a whole year's production.

    My 1520 actually still works fine, no ghost touch
    now that is interesting. So the phantom touch issue is mere software issue then? are you running w10m? if yes would you say that w10m has totally fixed the touch issue on 1520?(i am now planing to get 1520).thanks

    I'm looking at the UK pre-order page daily and it still says "email me when available" I think you mean the Clove and Expansys sites who take pre-orders before it is released for sale to capture customers (and then deliver weeks after MS - one personal experience)


    EDIT
    My correction - just found out they had limited pre-order and it is sold out. Real bad customer service from their agent saying she couldn't tell me if I could get one this year just it may go back up for pre-order soon.

    Also she was rude when I asked why I hadn't been sent an email saying it was on sale. She just said only the first people to register were sent emails. However I know I registered my interest within an hour of the 950XL going onto the site

    With this kind of customer service makes me wonder if it safe to buy any Microsoft product
