    Boom, done! Ready to try it out!
    I am too, but I note that MS didn't send me the e-mail that they promised to send when they went on sale. Thankfully, I read this forum regularly and found out about it so I could place my order. Now let's see when it arrives...

    I pulled the trigger. While I really want the dual SIM variant, I'm eager to get my mitts on this and I want to make sure I get a US version with a valid warranty. If the dual SIM variant appears in the stores before my return period ends, I'll pick one up and return this order. There are two MS stores within about 10 mins of me, keeping fingers crossed!

    Went to my local MS kiosk. Manager said the last he heard was that they would be getting the xl in store on the 20th. Of course he didn't know that they had gone on preorder on the online store, so they had not been updated (which he said they should have been). He said that they were still expecting them on the 20th, but took my contact information again to call me to confirm they had it on the 20th. He also said he would match the Display Dock offer.

    So overall I'm not impressed with the way information is being disseminated, and I still have no firm answer to availability.

    He did say that I could bring in the phone to get Complete even if I bought it online.

    I can confirm that the 10% education and 5% military discount both work, not together obviously. Being a military member and a student, I opted to use the education site for the 10%. $632 shipped! Not a bad deal once I get the dock. Canceled the B&H order.

    Early Christmas gift for me!
    Hmmm, email I got from Microsoft last week stated 10% military discount to honor Veterans day and every day after. I am assuming I just need to bring them a copy of my DD-214 and fill out some paperwork to get it to apply.

    Ordered the White 950xl unlocked; delivery by 11/25 plus the offer for the free dock.

    Anyone looking to buy a Mint White Galaxy Note 4 for Verizon?
    Sold my "Mint White Galaxy Note 4" for ATT a month ago for this new baby which will be here very soon!!
    The part about the free dock makes it sound like you already got the promotional cue for it?? MS told me that won't come UNTIL I have the phone and access Lumia Offers using the new 950XL.. Yes????

    Online store didn't have a verification process for either military or student, just a check box that you are being honest and agree to the terms. I assume they might contact you after. Give it a shot and i hope you get the discount! Online store only reflects 5% for me, so i used the student store for the 10%.

    Dont forget - Discover card holdersNget 5% cashback when ordering through the Discover site to the microsoft store... worth 32.49 off the 649 price... well worth the extra minute it takes!
    Not as good as Discover but Chase card holders use Ultimate Rewards for 3% cash back!

    I'm going to go to the microsoft store and see if I get the Dock if I pre-order there. I prefer to pick it up than have it delivered. It's right by my house so much better for me. Anyone know if the dock is online only?

    looks like there are a few people who are going to try what you're suggesting... may or may not work depending on whether the Lumia offers app is pre-loaded to those that are being sold via online store...

    reading the terms/conditions:

    "Available in Microsoft online store in the United States only"

    Posted this on the previous page, but I guess nobody read it. YMMV, but my local kiosk manager said he would match the free display dock if I purchased through them.

    Still haven't decided whether I should wait, or go ahead and preorder online and have it delivered to where I'll be on Thanksgiving.

    I printed out the email to take with me to show the 10% so they should honor it. Restrictions just say for Microsoft phones that are on contract phones not the unlocked versions.

    P.S. If any other vets didn't get the email just PM me or post up your email and I will forward it to you so you can get in on the savings.

    Not to get your hopes up, but 'ships BY' is not the same as 'ships ON'. It is probably their intent to get the phones into peoples hands before the holiday. When the launched the XboxOne, they shipped the online orders a few days earlier to ensure they arrived on the launch day.

    I just checked with the local store, who said they should be receiving the phones the same day they go live, which I am assuming is the 20th.

    I did not ask about the dock, but from everything I am gathering it seems that store pre-orders will get you the dock as well. I prefer to do my ordering and picking up in a brick and mortar store anyway.

    Btw, NEVER EVER EVER order anything from HTC or digital river. I have been fighting them about a return they received and signed for a month ago and are still saying they didn't get it, which it was clearly signed for a month ago. It is impossible to get a hold of delivering location to simply ask the ***** who signed what the hell he did with my package.

    UGH. DON'T EVER ORDER ANYTHING THAT GETS DISTRIBUTED BY DIGITAL RIVER.

    AWW Da##it I paid for express shipping which is 1 day, and its not going to even happen unless they ship before. Does anyone know what the exact launch date is? It can't possibly be Thanksgiving day it seems it should be before that.

    I'm betting on receiving the phone on the 20th.. :)
    Again someone posted about the dock being included in their order??
    MS told me that the dock is a promotional offer that will be handled through the Nokia Offers app, they have no control over it nor will include it in the phone's pre order invoice..

    Wow. Black already OOS. Makes you really wonder how many were available for pre-order.

    iPhone 6/6plus sold 4 million on launch day. If you figure WP market share is about 10%, you're down to 400k. Then factor in there was pretty much ZERO marketing for the 950/xl and the majority of WP market share is in the cheapo-phone category right now, I wouldn't be surprised if we were only talking maybe 25k units or less between the two colors.
