    The MS online stores now show that with purchase of the L950XL comes the FREE Display Dock. Here may be a discriminator.

    "Eligible for free Microsoft Display Dock with purchase of Lumia 950 XL via the Lumia Offers app, while supplies last" and the price has dropped as well by $64.90 US.

    Some date info in footnote 12 reads ... "[12] Valid with purchase and offer registration between 11/25/15 and 1/31/16 while supplies last. Redeem promotional code online through Microsoft Store by 2/29/16. Valid credit or debit card required at time of redemption. "

    It appears release of the phone may be 11/25/15.

    There's no way in hell I'm dropping almost $700 on the XL when the Surface Phone is around the corner.

    Around the corner is at least a year, probably more.

    Which is why they WON'T release a new phone, right after they released a new phone...

    Around the corner is like a month away. The surface phone (which nobody has any real definitive proof of) is no where close to being released that soon. And if the 950 sales flop, it definitely won't be released. MS has provided a flagship finally, don't throw that away for a possible prototype mystery device that is assumed to be coming out relatively soon. Not getting onboard with the 950s is a sure fire way of guaranteeing we don't see a surface phone ever.

    Does Cortana on iOS support reminders? If so, I'm going with the 6s Plus. I hate the ugly *** UI, but the phone works.

    "Right around the corner" for me could be next year or the year after that.

    With the way they release phones these days, a year or two is an ETERNITY! A lot of companies put out a new device every 6 months.

    I think it is still in Beta: Results for "cortana" | iMore

    You might want to bop on over to iMore and check in. Your Passport that logs you in here at WC logs you in over there.

    They don't, I've been buying my own phones for years on AT&T and I just pop my simm into my new phone and nothing changes except AT&T notices I have a different phone and lists my new phone under my devices in My AT&T account.. No fees or changes to my plan.. I've got 5 lines and done this with all of them.
    Hang on a minute. You're saying I could buy a phone I want, put my SIM card in it, and NOTHING HAPPENS?? The at&t police don't swoop down and charge you a gazillion dollars? I've been tossing and turning sleepless nights over what to do to get rid of my 830 (that I will be paying for and regretting my entire life) and get the phone I want? I could actually do this? Could I buy a phone on Craigslist or Amazon or eBay, plop my SIM card in it, and it would just work?

    I'm getting the 950. Although the XL looks amazing, I don't think it will stay as cool as people think. MSFT is holding a huge conference around March, that might be where they announce somethings brewing.

    Happens all the time on GSM.

    I've activated onto Straight Talk, T-Mo, Straight Talk and Cricket in the last 3 years. Once I have a SIM I always swap it between phones and never miss a beat. Every service I've had listed has seen multiple phones. Never paid a fee.

    When I played with the 950XL last month at the Microsoft store, it really did not feel too big. Everybody I talk to who has a larger phone all say that once they get used to the larger size, they really like it. With the free $100 dock that Microsoft is giving with the 950XL, it basically makes it the same price as the 950 if you want a dock as well. For me, it is an easy choice now... hoping my preorder arrives at the store by the 25th!

    I am one of those brick and mortar people that have to touch it before I buy it. It sounds like the MS Stores will have the XL while AT&T will only have the 950. So the question is where can I go to touch and fondle these phones at the same time?

    Nope but I am going to my AT&T store today and check out the 950, chances are slim to none I would change my mind, it would take a lot for me to give up so much more for only $35 more(free dock, larger display, faster processor, larger battery ect) got the XL with the edu/faculty discount :)

    I'm going up to the AT&T store today to look at the 950. Definitely not going to get it, but want to check out the OS, and the performance of it etc. If I were to choose between the two, I'd get the XL for sure as I'm currently a 1520 user. I've actually been thinking this 1520 is holding up just fine for now.. I'm probably going to wait a few more months until something a little more "Panos Panay inspired" comes along...

    I wish I can do that but my lumia 1520 died. Atleast microsoft said they will replace my 1520 with a 950 xl . I only have to pay the difference in price. I might settle for a 950 replacement instead. The heat and throttling issues of the 810 processor scare me. Also if these phones do not sell there might not be more phones to wait for.

    I picked up a 950 for my wife for our anniversary next week (shhhh she'll never know), it'll give me a chance to use it for a week before the 950 XL comes in. Who knows, I might like the size. Also I'm not entirely sure about what I might give up going with an unlocked XL. I already know the 950 comes with PMA wireless charging as well as QI, that's an upgrade. Plus stuff like VVM or the new WiFi/HD calling or whatever it's called may not work on unlocked devices. So I don't know, does anyone know of any hard proof of perks of getting an XL from AT&T (in the future, I know it won't be here soon) other than the added PMA charging?

    you make some great points but I could have sworn wifi/HD calling was something that is turned on the back in on your account by ATT at least that is what they did on my account, I have been using a Nexus 6p which is unlocked and not carrier branded and the wifi/HD calling is there in the settings so I think this is a feature they add to the account once it is there as long as the phone can do it you would get it. If the 950 has this ability the XL will too.
