    Details of your Microsoft purchase

    Thanks for stopping by
    Receipt Details
    Order number: **************
    Date purchased: 11/17/2015
    Item Description Qty Price

    Pre-order Microsoft Lumia 950 Black
    Product sku: 29G-01244
    Price: $0.00 1 $0.00

    Pre-order Microsoft Lumia 950 XL White
    Product sku: 29G-01243
    Price: $0.00 1 $0.00
    Summary of Charges

    Order subtotal: $0.00
    Order total: $0.00

    I wanted the White 950... but they said at that point I could only get it in black.

    I'll be switching from Verizon.

    I'm also going to be getting a 3rd party back panel, so it doesn't matter what color they come in.

    Ordered both so I can decide which one I want after playing around with the phones.... since the kiosk didn't have them to preview before this point.
    Did you get the dual sim? That's the same SKU they gave me for the dual sim...

    well - the microsoft store online, is again playing with my emotions!! :)
    let me add the white 950XL to the cart; did my discover card deal thing - had the place order button my screen, pressed it, did the little whirring thing on screen and came back saying that same message earlier this week that one of the items was not available :(
    dang it :)

    That circle is unacceptably excessive.

    depends - if it still had the 41MP sensor or had the once rumored 55MP sensor which was to have a similar f stop to the 950XL and larger pixel size too....
    we'll never know for sure now as this was also a prototype.

    Nope. I'm hoping for it today, but honestly don't expect to see it until Monday.
    Don't expect a charge, or a shipment notification until Monday? Is there any real chance that we actually have our devices shipped to us on the 25th??? If so, that would be so awesome.

    Picked mine up today and was pleasantly surprised to have a great experience at ATT. No one tried to talk me out of it or anything. The lady said, Oh, you a Windows guy? I said "I guess" and that was it. She said she is mainly an iPhone user, but she was hoping ATT would let her get a 950 as her "work phone". She bought a Surface 3 and really likes it better than her iPad and wants to try the phone too.

    There was another customer in the store looking at one and the employee helping her was actually saying positive things about the 950. She ended up getting the 950. That was two of us buying one within an hour of the store opening. The lady helping me said they received 5 Lumia 950s and was surprised because they usually only get 2 at a time of any Windows Phone model.

    Hello All...possible good news. I just got off a call a bit ago with a very nice employee in Microsoft's processing dept. I told her that I ordered the 950 XL via the online store with express shipping and an 11/25 ship by date. I inquired as to whether or not I might receive the phone earlier than the 25th. She left me on hold for a while. When she returned the conversation went like this:

    Rep: I spoke with a few different people and there is a possibility that you could receive the phone before the 25th...but it's a surprise.

    Me: so you're saying that it IS possible and it would be a surprise but you CAN'T tell me it's a surprise. *wink*

    Rep: (with a laugh) Yes that's right. Something Microsoft might do for folks that preordered.

    Soooo...let's all keep our fingers crossed. :)

    I'm honestly expecting for it to be shipped on Wednesday, then will receive it on Friday or Saturday. Would be awesome to have it shipped sooner.

    Soooo...let's all keep our fingers crossed. :)
    Well, after seeing that, I too would definitely hope for an early ship date!

    That would be a nice surprise. It would also be nice if Microsoft has a surprise for the folks who preordered 6 weeks ago in the brick and mortar stores and who are now made to pick up the phones on Black Friday (or Thanksgiving if the store is open) or hope that they will hold their reservation longer than 48 hours until they return from their Thanksgiving weekend.

    This. This so much. I don't leave until Monday, MS! Make it happen!

    I am not allowed to post link yet, and my other post in the dual SIM thread is still waiting for mod's approval, so I will post here.

    If you go to the 950XL page on microsoftstore.com, scroll down to the "Connectivity" section you will see that the spec has been changed to "Dual Nano SIM".

    That's great! Don't mention the actual promotion details, because they're not supposed to give you the dock right then.

    Interesting. Since this change (likely) was done after the initial pre-orders were done, I wonder if the dual nano SIM will only be for people who buy the 950 XL when it comes back in stock.

    That is great - verified it does say dual nano sim on the 950XL tech specs except....

    ATT version of the 950, which has been verified to be the RM-1105 model and is single sim, also shows dual nano sim...
    and the unlocked 950 shows single sim...

    so i wouldnt put too much credence into the dual vs nano sim for the US market just yet - lets wait until someone actually verifies it with first hand knowledge

    I honestly have no idea... I'll check when I get in the store.

    And I'm located in Southern California... will check on the dual sim though.

    Yeah. But they may be able to make something that looks like metal that won't.

    And whatever the backplate is, it has to flexible enough for removal and replacement. The 950 backs come off by bending them.

    On this phone, for now, yes. But Qualcom announced earlier this year that they figured out how to get wireless charging to work with a metal back. I would expect it to be commercial next year. The good thing is that we may be able to just change our back plate to get the functionality.

    Will the Microsoft store carry the 950xl MOZO backs? I don't really want to order from their website. The wait 3-4 weeks is just a big NO for me. I'm eyeing the black leather with metal trim cover, although the red leather with gold trim seems really bossy to me. I really hope the Microsoft carries them

    So, every time I go to the microsoft store to preorder the 950xl it shows the "Email when available" link. Am I just hitting it at the wrong time of day or something? Hitting this link
