    I'm not sure what you mean. I can see his comments, in red text, just fine. Do you not see them? What kind of device are you using to read this forum?

    I also think I may have been right and then wrong regarding his order situation. It does read as if he submitted an entirely new order for the bundle. Yesterday was a long day.

    I have received tracking info for my first order that consists of only the 950XL and Mozo cover. I haven't gotten anything for the order Microsoft created for the dock and 950.

    I am very tempted to get on this deal. I just purchased the 650 and the device is great but 950xl would be an upgrade, even though the device is older. At least I think it is...

    Spoke to MS Store today (via phone), have a Return label for 1st order, when it comes in.
    Second order included the Lumia 950XL, Lumia 950 & Display Dock.

    The 950 and/or 950XL are out of my price-range, so I got the 650 for 100 bucks to replace my 640.
    I'll just have to live without the better camera, but, heh, my 650 will look better right out of the box

    Carphone Warehouse in UK have a30 off deal this weekend. I went into our local store looking to buy and was told:-

    "We don't keep Windows phones in our store and strongly advise customers not to buy them. One of our team bought one but he lost the phone. It was only then that he found out too late that he'd lost everything: contacts, email, apps, etc, etc, EVERYTHING he'd ever put into the phone and there was no way to get it back! But if he'd lost an android phone he could've just signed into into his Google account on a new phone and everything would've been instantly restored."

    With expert advice like this is it any wonder that WM market share is so low"

    I had placed my order last night at 11:50 CST, and the display dock was not included either. I am looking at the website today and specifically searched for the dock but it is not listed, I wonder if it is a "out of stock" issue with the dock at the moment? I called the Sales and Support number and spoke to a very [un]helpful "Mike" about this, and all he reiterated was the specs of the phone and said there was no promotion for the phone at this time, including the BOGO ad.

    Since the phone was purchased on Black Friday, I hope its just a typo with the ad, but this is the second year I have had issues with the MS store and their promotions.

    I'm assuming we know that's NOT correct - it's saved under MS (@live, @outlook) email account.
    Sign in and it's ALL still there.

    Just checked the MS store, BOGO is still in play ... but NO Display Dock (Lumia 950XL & Lumia 950).
    I wonder if they will be getting more docks and/or if they are even making them anymore.

    My first order that consisted of the XL and Mozo cover shipped yesterday and is supposed to be here Tuesday. The 2nd order that was placed by Microsoft for the 950 and the dock is still processing.

    Yeah, the dock is now showing out of stock on the Microsoft website and appears to have been removed from the BOGO offer. The ad on the website clearly indicated that the dock was included when the deal went live, so the ad has either been manually, or automatically, updated.

    I just received shipment notification for my 2nd order of the 950 and docking station, so I guess I'll be getting a docking station. I hope they get more so they can be included on all of the BOGO orders.

    Im here in south Africa ans because the phone is selling so poorly one carrier is giving the phone away at 10 usd a month or 150 rand a month for 24 months.

    Got mine a while back.

    Don't rush. They aren't selling and will be let go soon.

    Remember these BOGO deals are while supplies last* , back earlier in the beginning of the year 2016 after the first BOGO sale I missed it cause they ran out of stock, soon after there was same BOGO sale in April , when I took advantage of it ,my neighbour and myself took advantage of it and got deal on the second day(I took 950,neighbour took the XL since I wanted smaller phone), the deal was going for a week, and stock ran out the day after we made our purchase, now it's here again, I took advantage of it again, this time i'm taking the XL , my assistant at work wants to replace his 640 with a 950, my wife to be will get my 950 to replace her 830, i'm gonna sell my neighbour who got the XL in the earlier BOGO deal for 50 bucks, it's win:win situation for me, I remember talking to Microsoft support online and they mentioned it was while supplies last and I think it even shows so online at time of deal, I learned from past experience not to waste any time where these BOGO deals are concerened. Also i'm from Caribbean.

    I believe my 950XL and Mozo cover were delivered today. I'm impressed with the turnaround time and I hope I'm as impressed with the phone.

    YES, I got my 2nd order today (first came Saturday, went back Saturday) with my 950XL, 950 & Display Dock.
    Charging the 950XL, now ...

    Coming from the Lumia 1520, the 950XL is NOT that big & the 950 is not that much smaller.

    Yeah, I was worried I might find the 950XL a bit overwhelming coming from a 920, but it doesn't really seem too large. I haven't spent much time with it, but it seems fairly comfortable in the hand. The one 1520 I ever saw and held seemed quite a bit larger. I guess I should try to find someone interested in the 950, which is scheduled for delivery tomorrow.

    I believe I'm going to try to get a SIM activated and inserted before I do anything with the phone. I want to say I've seen several suggestions to do that before even turning the phone on.

    Just to be sure I've got this right, again, all AT&T needs to activate a SIM for the 950XL is an IMEI number from a phone they support, meaning I could use my current 920 or the 950 that's on the way. Is that correct?

    I hope this goes smoothly and I'm looking forward to getting the BYOD reduction in my monthly bill. I've never used a phone that wasn't purchased directly from a carrier.

    I ordered the 950xl/950/Dock bundle right as the Black Friday sale started, but apparently before their computer system was told that the sale started.

    Monday I received the 950xl only. Chatted with support, and they're sending me the 950, and I got an email saying they'll call me to set up a (free) order for the display dock when they get more in stock. And a $10 MS store coupon code for my troubles.

    Pretty nice phone. But I did get it to really try Continuum, so that'll have to wait.

    I got the same email. I've already received a 950 and display via a separate order, but I give them credit for making things right.

    Strange. If any of the items in the cart is OoS, the checkout will not proceed.

    Also for me, the MS service people were professional and helpful. They told me not to expect the dock since they were OoS and restocking might not happen soon. But they did provide a hint that there are surprises lined up until holiday season.

    Dont know what he meant.

    I haven't had the phone long, but I have to say that, so far, I'm liking the 950XL. I'm a very basic user and don't need, or use, a lot of apps, but based on a lot of what I had read I thought I might be challenged to make a phone call. My four days of use have been event free.
