    Unfortunately down here, it will be a tough sell.

    The Lumia 720 is also the same price.

    I called them in order to get a feel of the business. The guy who I talked to was polite and immediately asked which phone I was interested in, and which color I wanted. He said I could stop by the store and take a look at the place and phones in person, but if I were looking for something in particular, I should call first to see if they have it in stock since it can take them 3 days to restock a device that is sold out. He also said, I could buy the phone there, at the store, if I wanted because, in his own words: "we are a full shop".

    I bought mine today from that store CTINYC. They are nice and legit. They have been in contact with me through all the process and since i live in NYC i went to the place and get it personally. They guy opened in front of me and test the device to see that everything were working fine. The price now was less from the one the day i order it and they have no problem to give it to me at the price that it is now which is a few bucks less. I bought the black one and the phone came with an orange extra shell. So far i like the phone. The screen looks almost the same as my old HTC HD7 but is not that bad like people complain. I mean if you are use to the screen of high end phones like my Lumia 920 you will see the difference but remember it is a midrange. People ask why choose these over Ativ S now that the Ativ is cheap. I talk for myself . I chose it because of the Nokia features.

    I got mine today. The service is good. The screen on my unit has 2 problems, though:

    1. the lower left corner has backlight bleed.
    2. the lower right corner is darker.


    So basically, the lower part of the screen is quite uneven. Does anyone's unit have either of these issues? I'll get it exchanged tomorrow. I'd put up with one of the two problems, but not both.

    Mine has it too on the bottom left corner, LCD screens are propense to have this problem. Especially if they are cheap. No big deal for me. If you don't mention it I didn't even notice it. So it's not that bad in my phone

    The backlight bleed, yes. But what about the dark spot on the lower right corner? the spot is the size of a big tile and is slightly darker than any other area of the screen. That bothers me more than the backlight bleed, which is more discreet.

    I don't have that problem. Why you didn't exchange it? I just installed a screen protector to my phone until i received the one i ordered that is made for the phone. I bought a cheap one for an HTC One and it covers the whole screen from below where it says Nokia until below the capacitive buttons.

    I only looked for scratches when inspecting the screen. I called them the next day and they said they could exchange it. So I'm going there Tue/Wed to do the exchange. By the way, will I need to contact MetroPCS (my carrier) to change something on my account once I have the new device? I'm guessing it's just a matter of removing the SIM from the old phone, then placing it on the new one.... Right?

    I'll order one of these 14 cases and a screen protector later this week. Which SP did you order?

    I made an image on Photoshop to show what the "dark spot" on the screen looks like. What an eye sore! Does anyone here have this problem? I hope they have a perfect unit in stock when I stop by their store Tuesday....

    regarding the Sim i think you just have to move it to the new phone and thats it. That phone is gsm it doesn't need to be configure by them. Just when they give you the new one turn it on there until you get to the screen with the tiles and check the screen to make sure everything is ok

    I'm glad I exchanged my "defective" phone for a new one. The new unit has less backlight bleed and no dark spot. That dark spot was driving me bananas! I'm happy with my new 625 now. For the $300 I paid, it's a great deal! Unlocked! I wish the screen were bigger, though, since reading comics on a 4.7 inch display is hard. However, if I waited for the larger Lumia models that are coming, I'd have to pay a lot more than $300 and be locked to AT&T.

    What I wonder now is, will we ever get GDR3?!

    I'm also satisfied with the service I got from CTINYC. They exchanged my "defective" phone without making a fuss about it. And they allowed my replacement unit to be a white one. They didn't have a white model the day I bought my original phone and that forced me to settle with the black one, instead. I had never heard of that store before (almost ordered from Negri), but I decided to give CTINYC a try because they have an actual brick & mortar store where I could check out the phones.

    I'm glad everything worked out for you. I said that starting with my 625 all my phones are going to be international. I'm tired of the treatment of AT&T. If I like a phone and because of the bands is not compatible and I have to buy here in the US I rather go to the Microsoft store but I don't want anything from AT&T. Now that I found that store ctinyc they are going to be my store to get my phones , they are here in NY and it is easy to me to just order it and walk by to pick it up, plus the price is almost the price they pay originally for the product so we are not paying that much over the original price.
