    I paid full price, off-contract, back in November. I have an old plan that won't let me do upgrades without raising the price of my plan anyway. I paid $99 for the 2-year Assure warranty, so that is probably why they were able to help me so long after purchase. Either the insurance deposit was waived, or I was given a one-time "sorry you're having issues and your device went EOL so early" pass... but I did ask and my insurance was transferred over to the 925 (I was also reminded that this was a one-time deal, I can't move insurance between any more devices).

    For those that don't know, the Assure warranty at Microsoft Stores allows you to turn in your old phone and walk out of the store with a brand new one - exact same phone, of course. They don't do repairs.
    Mystictrust... Mutiny!! lol jumped ship on us huh? Yea I see the ship sinking too, maybe we can use our 810's as oars and paddle to a safe harbor oh wait they EOL'd the harbor s-o-b! Might as well torch the ship and swim to the safest carrier unfortunately tmob is still the better deal damn!....

    You were a very strong advocate for this thread and keeping the band marching. I'm gonna miss you man! Good luck with your new toy I'm thinking by the time next year in May I'll be able to hopefully get a Catwalk hoping it has HDMI and better storage. Dropped my 810 face down on the concrete today fell out of my bike pouch and hit about 4 ft face down and the back cover flew off. I'm like oh great thinking everything was boinked. To my surprise nothing happened not even an impact mark weird man really weird can't even break the damn thing lol!

    I read his previous posts and it seems English isn't his mother tongue. I also noticed he seems to have access to some information from Nokia or Carriers.
    ...unless his information is coming from T-Mobile, it's useless as Microsoft and Nokia has issued updates...none of which the Nokia Lumia 810 has seen since January.

    Sorry to see you go Mystic, but congrats on the new device. I'm hanging tough, as I like the 925 too but don't trust t-mo and being stuck on another carrier branded device. I may hold onto my 810 a little longer and grab an unlocked 920...hopefully by then Amber is out. I'd only get a 925 if it is the 32GB model.

    @smurfercom, I'm not surprised at the 810's build...it is a tough phone, it's the Hephaestus/Vulcan of Greek/Roman myth...you forget how good it is in spite of the pub the other Lumias get...

    Now it's an IF or not ?

    I can't go in detail more, but the information is confirmed for the operator variants of 810 822 928.

    You should be saying if you're not just making things up.

    JUST WAIT and see I GUARANTEE THAT I HAVE THE RIGHT INFORMATION.
    No, you don't get to know if someone with inside info is giving you the correct info. Because they can lose their job if they have to prove who they are and how they know what they know. I've been in his shoes and whenever I do what he did, I get attacked by people like yourself.

    Personally, I just stopped giving out tips. Not worth the bull****.

    He's right. Wait and see.

    it's always the same story ...and I say it's all about drawing attention to themselves and not about providing information.
    I didn't ask for their name or where they got this so called inside info I said guarantee that it will happen or don't make claims that you have it confirmed or shut the f -up, talk is cheap.
    They could say where (TM, Nokia, MS ?) they got the info not how or from whom. Do you think wherever this ''so called" confirmed information comes from #1 monitors these forums # 2 has information as to who here passes it on ? No, they have better things to do, so to say that's an issue is more BS. Your right it's not worth the bull$hit listening to so called informed insiders who claim to know something but don't provide any proof except "trust me, wait and see'' or what ever catch phrase will divert attention from the question, PROOF ? If you can't provide a little more than trust me then it's all bull****.

    I hit thanks instead of quote, but I'm not taking it back lol...anyhoo, I don't completely disagree with you...but what is the point of dropping a few vague lines about "something good is coming, and that's all I can say" ...and they didn't think that anyone would ask questions...we, who have been waiting for an update to fix this phone, would just say Ok...why even post vague nonsense like that?

    MSFTisMIA, I've seen a "T-Mobile" 925 listed on Negri's website... Actually two as they list the white and the black. Now, both have "For international use only" at the top of their pages, but I've been planning on asking a customer service rep about that. The phones are priced at $549.50. They're said to be "T-Mobile" but also unlocked, which is interesting. Someone said the black one was the German version, but I know I've seen the AWS 1700 band listed on the white for sure. If you want, I can report back to you about them in here or PM after I talk to a CSR.

    UPDATE: I just spoke with a CSR on Negri. He told me the 925s they have up there are not compatible with T-Mobile US' band frequencies. Oh well. It's deceptive though, with the AWS 1700 band listed.

    You are right. And that's why I stopped posting inside information. People can't deal with it on any level.

    One should just take it for what it is. You can believe the tip or not, depending on your personality. But people can't.

    And if one responds to the requests to "prove" it's true, you find they aren't actually looking for anything other than to find some evidence you are lying.

    was it a 32GB model they had listed?

    Nope, they were 16GB versions. The pictures of the phones even have "T-Mobile" branding on them. :-/

    That sucks. Well, I will have to wait. I still like the look and feel of the 925, but there is something about the 920 that just stands out. Hopefully t-mo will give us the update to GDR2, but I'm not holding my breath there.

    So it's not Jesus who's coming and the update or guaranteed update date is just as vague as preacher saying Jesus is coming back
    but you gotta trust and have faith. I have more faith that Jesus will arrive than the Amber update for the 810 and I have no insider information.

    Yeah, that's how all inside information works. Everywhere.

    You can just choose not to believe it, or, you can throw a mini **** fit in CAPS for no apparent reason.

    You should totally cry about not believing him on an internet forum. That's what I'd do.

Look in the mirror and find your sense of humor, because this Nokia Lumia 810 phone has been a complete joke to anyone that purchased it.

    Not quite a "COMPLETE" joke.. just more of a "disappointment"... i'm content with it except for the damn updates... but seriously, if we don't get updates on these suckers by the end of Summer - sorry WP.. to Android I go back..

    So this convo went from "unknown individual who claims to have a source but not credible" to "Jesus".. then to "a guy that drives a truck that empties a trash can..." #awesome.
