    I have been able to upgrade my phone for almost two years. I waited and waited for the next Windows Phone all this time. Finally, Microsoft releases the Lumia 950, only to find out that my carrier will not offer it thanks to Microsoft. I even would get the Lumia 550, but all I read is only for countries like India. I will not change carriers just to get a windows phone, no matter how much I want it. I have had my current plan for years with my current company and I will not terminate it just to get a phone with a different company. I have 5 lines, unlimited talk, text and web. Since we split the cost, each one of us pays less than $65 a month, including taxes and all that. So what is the point of waiting another year for another super phone from Microsoft if my carrier will not offer it. I am so disappointed at Microsoft right now that maybe the deserve not to succeed in the mobile phone business anymore. I will just have to get an iPhone, something I never wanted to do. But looking at the bright side, iPhones have all the apps you can think of, very cool and stylish case covers and all that, they are compatible with all car manufacturers, oh and my service provider offers them.

    I was told by an MS store rep that it should be available in the US when it comes out. We will see, of course.

    Well, since under 24 hour's it's been pretty much outed as Verizon is to blame.

    Wonder what your thoughts are on that?

    3 GB RAM (is that right?)
    yes

    microSD card, max 200 GB?
    theoretically 2 TB, but there is no such a microSD card out there... ;-)

    From retail, here in Norway. Webshop called Komplett.no. Unlocked version. Will be delivered December 3.

    Actually a nice buzz about the phones here in Norway.. Several shops are advertising them for pre-order now, they have dedicated pages for them with a lot of info.

    Yes, I'll be getting a 950. I need to pick a new phone from ATT for my work. I've been postponing picking something until the new Lumias are available, so it looks like next month it will happen. Hopefully I can keep the IT crew at bay until it's released. I'm going with the 950 rather than the XL, I'm a fan of smaller phones, and even the 950 is too big for my tastes, but it's new and it's a Lumia.

    I will get a 950 if they are available soon. If I have to wait until December then I will do the unthinkable and get an iPhone.

    My company are Microsoft partners, I'm kind of hoping that we'll get the 950 when it arrives.

    950 dual sim black, 90% sure, waiting for in-depth reviews and to buy it in a store.
    The reviews can still change my mind, and make me wait for the next flagship.
    Online stores just don't offer the same customer service in my experience.

    So people, I just found out that I could pre-order from Microsoft Store Spain, I also checked on UK and you can also pre-order. So it seems this is moving forward.

    The website states that it will be sent before 28th of november.

    Just check your Microsoft stores.

    Cheers!

    Just preordered a Lumia 950 from the Microsoft store UK today. Total cost including VAT 449.99p ships by December 3rd 2015.
    I'll probably keep hold of my current L1520 for a while, then sell it on. Just got to wait now, I'll be like a kid waiting for father christmas calling.

    No. The 950 is like WindowsRT for phones.
    Huh? In what way? It is almost spec for spec the same as the XL except for screen size and processor. It can do anything any other windows phone can do, unlike RT for tablets.
    So again I ask: How is the 950 like RT?

    Because it's still ARM. It can't run x86 executables, like a full Win tablet. Even with Continuum, it won't be a full PC, because it can only run Universal apps. Just like WinRT. When they create a phone with an Intel x86 processor, then it will be a full PC when connected to Continuum.

    The 950/950XL are the last remnants of the Nokia heritage before MS comes out with a true Win10 phone. If I don't plan to use my phone as a PC because I actually have a laptop (like almost everybody), then this generation of phones does not offer anything compelling for me. I will wait for an Intel Phone, not with ARM.

    Daniel Rubino's words, not mine: "Microsoft Continuum for the phone is easily one of the most interesting aspects of the new Lumias. However, being able to run Universal Windows Apps on a large display means you are carrying a Windows RT device around with you. Granted, in Windows 10 the UWA model is much better, but you still cannot run x86 apps on your phone." Taken from http://m.windowscentral.com/reading-...ose-new-lumias

    So I was surfing Microsoft store again, and right now you cannot pre-order the new lumias... It is curious, luckily I pre-ordered mine yesterday.

    About people waiting for the theoretical Intel based phone, good for you, but it is kind of tiring to read about a phone that we do not even know if it exists in a forum about lumia 950.

    You should go to upcoming & rumored phones.

    Well, the OP asked if I was planning to get a 950, so I gave my answer, and why. My response was a complete statement, so what was the mistake here?
