    Hi AT&T Reps! Thank you for the Lumia sneak peak! Just a question. My sister has a family plan with AT&T and I was thinking of sharing with her. What do I have to do to setup a new line with the family bundle she has and can I set this up and preorder a Lumia900 with it? Sorry I'm a newcomer to AT&T, switching from prepaid :D

    Thanks!
    She needs to go to the store with you to add the new line and pre-order the phone for that specific line. Other than that very simple, choose the family plan (unless she already has one), then choose the data plan that you'd like. Oh, $36 activation fee.

    How do I check for corporate stores? When I look under find a store on the website, there is no option for corporate store

    Anyone store that is by itself is corporate. If it's a handset you bought at Best Buy that included the contract it's not considered corporate. That store finder will tell you about the corporate stores.

    if the store just says AT&T its a corporate store. If it says anything like at&t authorized retailer, communication connections, or anything of that affect then it is a franchise. Usually you can tell the difference inside the stores too. All live phones vs dummy phones

    Also my brother might give me his upgrade and stick with his dumbphone. If I do that is he stuck with a data plan or will it drop off when he goes back to a dumbphone (assuming we do this in a store)? Basically is there ever a situation where a data plan is part of the contract?

    It would be best to do it in the store. We can do cross upgrades so the data plan will only be on the number its supposed to be on. Just tell the rep what number has the upgrade available and what number is supposed to get the phone. They will take care of the rest.

    Something I noticed with WIFI.

    When not connected to charger:

    On my 900, the WIFI stays on even when device goes to sleep. On my other WP devices the WIFI goes to sleep when device sleeps.

    This causes the 900 to drain battery like crazy 30% in 2 hours.

    I'm hoping this got fixed in production firmware/OS (I'm still on 8107)

    This is a bug. The reason I say this is that have an HTC HD7 and sometimes, under the lock screen, the wi-fi is on and sometimes it disconnects(READ it doesn't shut off, it just disconnects from the network it was on). I am on 8107 also. It was worse with all previous updates. By worse I mean when the phone locked it disconnected right away. With the wi-fi on AND the Zune playing music the battery is down below 10% in under 6 hours.

    You should be able to. Infact, I'm counting on it. I'll be moving from iPhone to Lumia as well. There were talks on the verge or somewhere i cant remember that once you are grandfathered, you are locked in even for LTE.
    you can.. I moved from my 3gs to the Titan, and they kept the unlimited.
    I canceled my titan on day 29 of the 30 day return policy, brought it back to the store, and the salesrep said my unlimited will be put back.

    can the 900 be used for wifi hotspot? I have used aneroid in the past with a work around for free wifi hotspot. Will we be able to do the same on a wp7 device?

    In addition to the $99 and $36 activation fee, is it true we have to pay sales tax on the retail price of the phone? I'm in California if that makes any difference. Not complaining at all since the $99 price is epic but just want to know how many pennies to bring on the 8th when I pick up at the MS Store (yes, I preordered). :)

    to add I'm at 99% charge after about 1 hour off charge just downloading apps over WiFi now and the phone told me I have 1 day and 12 hours of bat life left
    That really doens't matter. My HD7 gets similar battery life on WiFi (1 day, 3 hours off the charger before i got to 5% a few days ago with moderate to heavy use on WiFi and lots of music streaming).

    We need to know what the battery life is on HSPA+/LTE to know if it's worth it, especially with no removeable battery which already stinks to me :P

    Problem with most LTE devices is not the WiFI battery life but the fact that they die a few hours after you leave WiFi and have to use them on the mobile/LTE network. But you know that already :P

    Does it at least have more than 16GB internal storage? Maybe that can sway me...

    I can't see where that is the case. If you get a "free" phone from AT&T (or other carriers) you do not pay the sales tax for the retail price.

    Update: I checked to see how much I paid for my wife's free Inspire 4G from Best Buy - with case, screen protector, charger, and activation, it was $48.60 - it is a $399.99 phone, so sales tax would have been around $44, so I definitely didn't pay retail sales tax.

    In CA you pay the tax on the full price of the phone upfront. So youd pay $99 plus tax on the full price of the phone which is $549. Your total out the door price would be about $200 bucks (not a math major.)

    In other states you pay the phones sales tax on your monthly bill.
