    Or some other promotion/sale? Or buy it first day no matter what? On AT&T.

    I doubt you're going to see much in the way of a discount on a brand new device.

    You have 14 days to return it without question. If something comes along on black friday just go into the store and return it for whatever deal they are running that day.

    My math:

    (limited availability) x (crowd madness)3 = insanity.

    I can't do those sales. The savings is not worth it in my mind.

    True, not looking for a discount, more like what might be bundled with the phone. Like the Band 2 or a cheaper Surface 3. I already have both of those, wouldn't mind a Display Dock or Wireless Charging Pad or some such though. The 14 day returns do give me some peace of mind, good point.

    This.

    The discount isn't worth the madness.

    AT&T has a deal on the Surface 3, and if you read the fine print, it looks like it's the LTE version.

    If you want the dock, the MS store/site has a deal on a free dock with the 950XL.

    I wanted the XL, but am tempted by the deal on the Surface 3. However, I'm also curious to see if there's a bundle/deal with the Band 2.

    All I know is it's going to be hard to beat buying an LG V10 at Best Buy. LG offers a promotion for a free 200gb sd card, extra battery, and battery charger (offer ended on Sunday) and Best Buy is giving a free 24" tv away if you buy the V10 from their store. Both my buddies did this on Saturday and they are getting like $450 worth of free stuff.

    I will probably order the 950 on AT&T's site tomorrow. I've been jonesing for a new phone for awhile. Who knows, they might discount the dock for black friday or for christmas. Maybe I'll just wait until someone sells a dock used on ebay or amazon for cheap.

    I keep wondering if I should hold off and hope maybe MS will start offering their dock with the 950. It seems completely silly to me for them to essentially be selling the XL for the same price as the 950 ($649 + Dock = $549 phone), but offer nothing for the 950.

    I have a feeling it's because there are probably going to be a lot more people who buy the 950 through AT&T then people buying the 950XL outright. If they throw in a free dock, they might get more people to buy the XL unlocked. Just my opinion of course.

    I usually wait till January, coz 2 yr subsidized contract usually goes down on these phones by $50-$100 on Amazon. Not sure about the Next Plans though.

    Next plans would be tied into AT&T's unlocked price for the phone, I think, which tend to stay high over time.

    That is a crazy amount of free stuff. Was pretty happy with just the wireless charger for my L920, ha! I will use the 14 day returns from AT&T if something compelling comes out around Black Friday, if I have to.

    If that's the case, they could always offer the hub to anyone buying an unlocked phone.

    I'll be buying mine outright... but I just prefer the smaller screens. I don't like the way phones are moving toward bigger screens.

    Well the 950 is going to be sold through AT&T and unlocked through MS. The XL is only being sold through MS. They've already cut their availability in half with the XL, a free dock is a nice promotion to get more people to buy.

    AT&T has already stated that the XL would be available through them at a later date.

    I agree, that's why you wait til Cyber Monday. You'll see discounts online and won't have to fight any crowds. Or wait til after the first of the year and still see even more discounted pricing.

    Doesn't Microsoft always do a countdown to Christmas type sale every day leading up to the 25th if I remember correctly?
    I can definitely see 950 deals then

    AT&T had a post on twitter a couple of days ago. Another user also mentioned it in a different thread.

    I don't normally buy the first production run of anything. Do these phones have a good reputation for build quality on the first run?

    Hey there, if my battery wasn't so horrible with the Lumia 920 I would be sticking with it. It's laying on my shelf waiting to be used again, poor thing. :(

    I just preordered my phone rather than wait. I'd rather have the phone than take a chance, and whoops December is when I can get it again.

    If MS wants to actually sell a competitive number of the XL, they had better do something on black friday. You cant be at <3% market share and expect someone with no knowledge to be enticed by a new phone with a platform not known to them. Its $650, dock or no dock. The free dock isnt going to force that many people to jump to Win10m.
