    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.
    You will end up paying taxes off the RETAIL PRICE of the phone. In this case, $449.99. The phone will come out to about $135 with taxes.

    Can a phone purchased outright be swapped within 30 days? And/or is that swap possible with an active GoPhone account or with postpaid only?

    Totally worth the $35 to use a 900 for a month then get a brand new phone :P

    question for other at&t employees out there...have you been able to get visual voicemail? When I first booted the phone up i got a message about my voicemail not being set up. I didnt know this phone had visual voicemail. how can i set this up? is it something on the COU website?

    Also I'm having issues billing apps to the cou account. I get an error when I click buy. I had no problems before I jumped into the Lumia. Have you guys had this issue? If so how can I fix it? I attached a photo so you could see it. Thanks

    Sales Tax will vary from state to state. As mentioned, in CA, you will pay taxes on the retail price. So 8.75% on the retail price of 449.99 in my area in CA.

    If i wanted to get the phone in Greenville South Carolina, I would pay taxes 6% (i think) on the discounted price of $99.

    Imagine if the phone was $0, no tax in Greenville.

    Did u make sure to switch out ur cou device on the cou site. Check ur features and make sure your remove purchase blocker is still active. Did you hook the lumia up to your PC and have Zune updated and installed. I download and bought soinc 4 episode I today on my cou account no problems.

    About vv I did remember reading something about it. I paid it no mind tho. I'll look into it a little later. Hope I helped.

    Yea I had to swap my sim, since I needed a micro, and imei on the cou site. The Zune part was a little confusing to me. I have a mac so I used my wifes old PC laptop to install Zuneand all seemed to go well. My Lumia is listed under my devices along with the original Focus I used for about a week last February. The purchase block was off when I had my Galaxy S II, Vivid, and the Note so that shouldnt have changed. I'm off til Fri but I will have someone log in for me to check tomorrow. If you can think of anything else please let me know. There are several apps I want to buy! Thanks

    AT&T reps,

    I was told in my AT&T store you all no longer offer 1 year contracts? Is this right? There were articles written a year ago about them existing.

    I would like to get the Lumia 900 for just a year! 2 years just seems so long in the smartphone world.

    Why is AT&T raising the no-contract and one-year contract pricing of phones? | PhoneDog

    To my knowledge we can do a 1 yr contract on a new activation just not an upgrade. That would make the cost of the phone $250 more for a total of $350. We rarely get this request so I could be off a lil bit. I just know it gives us the option in the system I just never use it. Maybe someone else here has more accurate info?

    Just wait until the worldwide edition launches if you want it unlocked. It will be without LTE radios, and it may even be a bit more expensive. Although I am sure there will be an unlock method to surface soon.

    Ooooh, thanks! Even more incentive to pre-order. Do you know if the pre-orders are shipped out only, or can you pick them up in-store on the 8th?

    In addition, how much do you have to put down for the pre-order, or is it the full amount?

    Not completely true. on my account, which was once tied to a business account, but not anymore, i can still see a 1 year upgrade option. You know whats sweeter than that? The price of the device (any device) for 1 year is the same as that for a two year contract. That option is not available for me in store, only online.

    When you go online, there is an option to see if are eligible for business discount, based on your company affiliation etc. If so, enter your business email address and you are all set. Thats all i had to do, and granted, this was over 5 years ago. When i login today, it still tells me my account is affiliated with XYZ company. Give it a try.

    what ever you are to pay on the day of sale is what you will have to pay to pre order it. So it depends on your upgrade or new line of service.

    AT&T Reps with the Lumia 900s, are you able to switch off LTE? Possibly in the cellular data settings? I don't think my city still has LTE, so I don't want it to be a huge battery killer for me.

    Not an option currently. Just the switch for cellular data. I haven't found battery life to be an issue thus far. I've only had it since Monday though.

    It looks like some AT&T stores have already got white models. The store I went to yesterday didnt have it and they said they didnt order the white one, but others in the city have got white. I should have asked which ones, but my bad, i didnt.

    So those who go to store to check it out, rememebr to ask if they have a white one on hand.

    It wont have ATT frequencies so the best you'll get is probably EDGE speeds for voice and data. A better choice would be Rogers in Canada which has the same frequewncies as ATT
