    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
    It will have AT&T 3G bands.
    From the Nokia UK site:
    Operating band
    GSM 850
    GSM 900
    GSM 1800
    GSM 1900
    WCDMA Band V (850)
    WCDMA Band VIII (900)
    WCDMA Band II (1900)
    WCDMA Band I (2100)

    Just talked to a local ATT store on the phone. She said preorders is from March 30th to Apr 4. Home delivery on Apr 6th. That's great news, I thought I had to wait till Apr 9 since the 8th is Easter and they are closed. I know what I will be doing tomorrow. The question is how to leave work for 1-2 hours. :) 8 more days to wp7/nokia bliss!

    You should be able to pre-order online, according to the AT&T rep I spoke with. As long as you order by 3 PM CDT April 5th you should get it on the 6th, but I would order ASAP.

    I preordered through MS store...The one in santa clara, ca...They are all pretty clueless about the phone. I preordered yesterday, they didnt know the release date, they didnt know the price, they thought the white would come same time. They said that they have no heard nothing and there were no announcements. I guess they dont go on the internet... I ordered the blue one anyway hoping that i can get a $25 app giftcard if they have the promotion again.

    I did the challenge and lost and ended up getting a titan...So sell that, got a $10 giftcard from MS store to go towards a 900 :)

    The official release date is April 8th and pre order will start on the 30 of March to be deliver on the 6th of April
    But that is only for in-store pre-orders...correct? If I were to go to AT&T's site to do the pre-order then it wouldn't get here until the 9th? Also, I didn't see it mentioned, but if it was pre-ordered in-store...does it arrive at your residence, or do you still need to go down to AT&T and pick it up?

    I'm curious about not only the included case, but whether you have any knowledge about aftermarket cases that at&t might be stocking on launch day. I know that it's been very disappointing so far with regards to wp7 cases. Thanks in advance.
    I just visited handhelditems, they have cases and screen protectors at really good prices

    Hi AT&T Reps-

    Just a few questions...
    1. When I upgrade to the Lumia 900, will my plan change with AT&T? I currently have a company discount and remembered it took like two billing periods before I was able to see the changes. I'm hoping that upgrading will not eliminate this discount feature on my account?
    2. I keep seeing "LTE data plan" being thrown around and need more clarification. I currently have the 2GB data plan, but what do I have to do to keep the same 2GB data plan and make sure that it supports LTE? Is it supported automatically since the Lumia 900 is already LTE, or does there need to be some switch that AT&T needs to flip on for me to utilize LTE speeds on my current data plan?
    3. I've been reading about this polycarbonate body of the Lumia 900. Some sites say that it's pretty durable and very scratch resistant, while others say that it is soft and can easily scratch. I'm not looking to put my phone with my keys or force any scratch tests on the device, but how resistant is the body from scratches? I usually put my phone on my desk at work, in my pocket with my wallet, and would like to know of its resistance factor?
    4. I currently have a Samsung Focus and the clarity of the text is pretty darn sharp, however, that phone is 4" while the Lumia is 4.3". If you could compare the difference on how clear the text appears?


    Thank you in advance for your support!

    I'd like to know if anyone knows if Best Buy will be allowing pre-orders on the 30th. I ask because I have rewards points i'd like to use towards it.

They will provision your current data plan for LTE

    4. I currently have a Samsung Focus and the clarity of the text is pretty darn sharp, however, that phone is 4" while the Lumia is 4.3". If you could compare the difference on how clear the text appears?
    definitely clearer and more crisp

    If I were to pre-order, would I need to go back into a store to have them activate the LTE plan and the Visual Voicemail? Seems like it'd just be easier to go the store on the 9th.

    I called and asked for the same reason they only knew they would be carrying the phone on the 8th no preorder. I have to believe thats accurate because the website doesnt even show it yet and usually for pre orders its up before

    I asked this in another thread, but didn't really get an answer other than ask AT&T. So maybe one of you guys can help. I want to pre-order the 900 online, but I am a new activation and I want to start a family plan. Can I pre-order the 900 and order my wife's phone at the same time? And how difficult is it to port a number over the phone?

    How's the battery life? And how is the LTE? Also, is there a way to disable LTE and only use HSPA+?

    Camera is super fast, even compared to my iPhone 4s. That I am jealous of, ahah.

    I work in the city of Orange, really close to The Block in Orange off of Main St and Chapman Ave.

    If you pre-order the phone before April 4th you can actually get the device on April 6th which is two days before official launch date in cor stores.

    We will also be carrying accessories for this phone though it doesn't give detail on which specific accessories that we will have.

    If it's the same as always, the White version will still be priced at $99 because they don't switch promotions within a months range. So don't worry about the price going up within 30 days.
    What's a cor store???? I can't seem to find one near me.

    Thanks

    I spoke to AT&T rep online.

    1. You can pre-order online and in-store
    2. You cannot pick up your item in-store. It will be shipped and delivered to you on April 6th if you pre-order by 3 PM Central on April 5th.

    I have posted answers to many of the questions asked here in a series of comments to the article on the 900 currently near the top of the WPCentral homepage. I have spent a few hours with the phone. The digitizer is very good - a bit faster and more accurate then on my Titan. Yes cases are available now from AT&T in colors that match the phones currently on offer,so the Nokia Rep was misinformed about this.

    I will be using my wife's upgrade, will be tricky to do it online I think. And to answer the delivery on the 6th, she said it was delivered to the customer's residence/business not to the att store.

    just order the phone on her line.. when you receive it, call 611 or the toll-free CS number and punch in her number, it'll recognize that a new phone has been shipped and it will give you the option to activate on al alternate phone number.
