    I know ATT, Verizon, and Tmobile will carry the 830. I do not think sprint will. No info on the 730, although I would guess at least ATT and Tmobile will have it.

    The 730 on tmobile should be around $220, and the ATT version $200, although the MS store should offer them for $150 to $170. Verizon only currently offers high end WPs, I do not see them changing that. The 830 will be maybe $300 off contract, and free to $50 on one. The MS store should also offer this for $220 to $250.

    Hi jpal12,

    I am using t-mobile and the management like to limit features of Lumia WPs. So when ever a new phone is announced, I look for what they will limit like only "white" color, limit storage, or different form factor which limits accessories compare to the standard version.

    The only white color might be a concern, although both phones are rumoured to have removable shells. The windows phone 8.1 update adds support for apps on SD card, so storage is less of a concern, and will likely be 8 GB on all but the high end devices. I am not sure about the 830. And now that Microsoft is making Lumia phones, they will have enough money to stop Tmobile from changing the dimensions.

    830 will have 16GB on board storage. Same processor and screen resolution. I learning toward the 735.

    T-Mobile district manager knows nothing about either model coming to T-Mobile! Does not look good for the U.S. I guessing; this is one of the phones that is called their global phone. Nokia/Microsoft does not want to hurt U.S. carriers by adding additional Lumia models to their inventory so they just call it a global phone and leave the U.S. and Canadian marketplace out of it! They did it with a couple of earlier phones too! Sad!

    I would hope that's not the case - if it is, hello Moto G. The 735 is exactly what I've been waiting for. Here's hoping the big guys, specifically AT&T, gets it so I can put it on Cricket.

    Both are coming to the US. They have them listed on Nokia's US website.

    Good to hear! Let see if there are follow up announcements in a week or so as to how it is to be sold in the U.S. I what an unlocked version sold on the Microsoft Retail Store and on Microsoft's online store.

    I would get the 730 for $200 at most. I'm disappointed in the specs, but if the price was right I could live with it. The 830 is better, but if it's i the $400 range, forget it. Nexus 6 will have way better specs and if history tells us anything, will be in the same ballpark pricewise.

    I know WP8 does not need incredible hardware to run smoothly. I just had a Android person observe me using my 521 and he said 'wow, still no lag' (I've had a 521 for almost a year). Still, either give high end specs or give really good price points on lower end specs...a middle ground isn't appealing to me.

    The prices for the newly announced phones will not be for the US. It will probably be $150 for the 735, and $250 for the 830.

    One more for the rumor mill...this is completely unfounded and I have no photographic proof.

    I just got home from the T-Mobile store near us.
    This location had very few phones on display actually just the usual Samsung, LG and iPhone selection.

    After getting some business done I asked the young gal helping me if any new phones were coming.
    She wasn't for sure then a dude in a suit and tie with a T-Mo name tag on stepped over and introduced himself as a company customer liaison.
    He told me all area stores were getting one new model from htc before Septembers end and 2 new phones from Microsoft before the holiday rush.

    This guy said all stores would have 4 WP's in stock and on display by mid November.
    He eluded to a number of locals asking about lower cost devices for family members.

    That is not what Paul said, nor Microsoft. They simply did not comment on it. No carriers were announced that day. None.

    The absence of a US carrier announcement is not evidence that they are "NOT coming to the US...". It just means there is nothing official.

    I am confident that one or both of these are coming to the US. Indeed, everyone's favorite evleaks said so months ago. No one remembers "Tesla" (ATT) and "Superman" (Verizon), both "mid range" Windows Phones with Update 1 on board? That's the Lumia 830.

    Didn't you think it was kind of unusual they didn't announce US carriers or dates? are they waiting to see what happens after the iPhone 6 debut?

    Not really and no. There's no reason to base the release around iPhone 6 and there's no reason to announce network launch dates if they're not set yet. The 735 is specifically a U.S. device - no other country needs an LTE/single SIM phone more than the United States.

    Neither say they are exclusive, however. Or at worst, let's hope for a very short period of exclusivity like the HTC One with a supposedly 60 day exclusivity period. My phone is limping and needs replacing, but it's not going to be on VZW no matter what. I left them over 3 years ago and have loved the savings.

    I hoping for an unlocked 735 Mexico model that I can buy online! It worked with the Lumia 1520.3, so I hoping Nokia will announced a 735 for Mexico too! F*ck the U.S. marketing of the Lumia models. It is a complete failure! How are they going to expand there base when existing users like me go back to there previous OS based on lack of hardware available to upgrade? Microsoft is shooting itself in the foot again. They are just massive failure in marketing hardware. The Surface has been a failure and now Lumias in the U.S. is heading in the same direction too! LOL!

    Apple has it act together; it going kick *** this year and next! They always had the marketing genius in selling their wares because it available everywhere and they sell an unlock version with all the U.S. radios frequencies built-in at the top of the pricing ladder with over 50% profit margin. People are waiting in line for the Apple new iPhone 6 and they are still after two weeks after the release! Microsoft has not even announce when they will release the 735 in the U.S. but I don't care because I am interested in the Mexico 735 model! That the important one for me! I live in the U.S. of A!

    I don't generally post on here, but I do want to say this.... I am quite disappointed in Microsoft. I'm still a bit mad about them abandoning us WP7 users, but I can live with that. The one thing I can't accept is that Microsoft keeps announcing phones and it takes MONTHS in some cases for these phones to hit the market in the US, and quite often they never even get here, or only one provider will offer it. They definitely need to learn more from Apple in this regard. Apple announces a phone, you can order it instantly, and it gets delivered a week or two later. Simple.

    I just wish I knew why Microsoft can't just offer all their phones at the Microsoft store so we can simply buy what we want. These exclusive deals certainly get on my nerves since Tmobile hardly ever gets a good windows phone. All I can buy now is the 635 and 521, 530. That's it. No lumia with a front facing camera or even an LED flash which my old 710 has! I wouldn't think twice about spending $250 to get my hands on a new Lumia 735, but apparently Microsoft just doesn't care for me to upgrade. Very frustrating.

    When is the 730 coming to the us?
    Does anybody have an idea?
    Even if it's unlocked from amazon.

    I need to know before my sister gives up on waiting and gets a Samsung.
