    Not $99. that's for sure but when I click:
    I have a AT&T account and want to upgrade my current device to this one it's = $159.99.

    Yep, you are correct. 100%. Better deal on Amazon then anywhere else.

    That is twice I have been slammed in my own thread. I need to do more home work. WPC is a tough crowd!!

    Not slammed just an FYI so you can be (sort of) happy. It's $60. more than that $99. loss leader ( look it up if you've never heard that term)
    and $40 less than $199.

    Okay... update.....

    The online deal is for the AT&T locked, no contract price. It is &100.00 off, with the $50.00 app card. That makes the L1520 $449.00 total.

    The on contract price of $99.00 +$50.00 app card is in store only.

    I am over 75 miles from my closest store.

    I am depressed......

    Understood. You were correct, of course. My only point was that I cannot remember an "introductory" price lasting so short of a time on a phone. Seems like a wierd decision.

    Bummer. Keep an eye open, I'm sure the price will drop again.

    I can tell you right now the reason they are not offering it online is because they have no ability to ship this device. I ordered two 19 days ago from the MS Store and was told most recently they don't have any more. They have no estimated time of when they will ship these phones again. But I am guessing next year.

    Re: Loss leader, they got traffic and deemed it a success so end loss leader sale.

    I don't know if they did anything specifically for the Lumia 1520 but I do know they knocked 50% off many cell phones for a few weeks. Notably the Galaxy Note III was excluded. I can't imagine paying $299 for a Note III vs $99 for a Lumia 1520.



    There was also the $100 smartphone trade in offer that was going on in stores. They also did the $100 trade in offer back in May I believe.

    congrats... I ultimately decided against purchasing the phone... Believe I was interested as previous posts stated... I may try to buy a 1020 to update my 920, but ultimately I will wait for a real windows 8.1 device.

    I am most certain you will enjoy this phone.

    Wow.

    That is sobering. I am actually a little excited to get one now that my mind is made up, but can't bring myself to drop the 200.00 on it. If it really will be the 1st or so before the price takes a little nosedive, I am using my cracked-screen L900 for about 3-4 more weeks. That might be annoying.

    Funny thing is if my Wife ends up deciding on the Note 3 (She actually want s to see that LG Flex with it's curved 6" screen in action before deciding), I will plop $250.00-$300.00 down without thinking twice. I am about to drop $100.00-$150.00 for my daughter on the L1020 without thinking twice.

    It is only me I can't bring myself to spend money on. I am kinda strange that way.
