    Ha! Guess I forgot to ask about a key piece of information, my bad! :lol:
    This is so sad and weird. despite info suggesting otherwise at att.com/lumia, there seems to be NO WAY (YET) to get a $449 no-commitment unit ordered or pre-ordered, even at AT&T corporate stores (i went to 2 and called 3) UNLESS you already have an AT&T account (commitment!!).

    This forum has one thread suggesting it is available in the BestBuy system, I just chatted with BestBiy mobile and checked online, NOT TRUE!

    Many news articles "report" that the no-commitment $449 version was put on sale days ago. NOT REALLY!!!

    Quick question after doing my pre-order. Does anyone know if there is the $25 dollar app promotion card?

    I ordered mine today in cyan. I had to pay a little more since I'm doing an "early upgrade". I hope I get mine on Friday!

    I join to the list, but since I'm no US citizen I bought it from a UK store on ebay.

    I beat you all since the store announce a shipping date between late may/early june :P

    Hope it will arrive waaaay sooner ;)

    This is the most excited I've been about a phone since my HTC TyTn. Haha.

    Now if only I could get a shipment notification from AT&T...

    I am 98.5% sure that if you are not an existing At&T customer, you can not become one without signing a two year contract (other than a go phone, which are limited to a few specific handsets) and this is why you cant get the off contract price. Its how they keep people from buying a phone to unlock for use with another carier.

    Ordered my cyan 900 on Monday. Probably going to replace my Titan (Which I do love).

    Yes, you can only do it online. At the pre-oder page go like you want to upgrade, it will tell you you are not eligible for upgrade and show you an Iphone...click at the bottom left to See All Phones and the Lumia should be 1 of them allowing you to pre-order without extending
    That worked!

    i'm hoping for that missing 1.5%

    I spoke to a corporate store about going there when they arrived for a $449
    purchase, and no mention was made about having an AT&T account... or needing one. Just a social security nbr and credit card to "map" the IMEI. Hmmn.

    Anyone REALLY know if this is gonna fly? TY

    That doesn't make any sense. Why would they care what you do with the phone if you buy it at full price?

    Also, you can become a customer off contract, I did it last week in order to port my number at a specific time, even though the 900 was not for sale yet.

    That is an angle of possible interest. I am a Uverse customer and can by equip such as modem at att.com/equipment, but not a wireless customer. (So I cannot do the "trick" of choosing upgrade and when that is disqualified, buy a full-price unit online, which is otherwise barred.)

    How does one become an off-contract "AT&T customer" of WIRELESS svcs. What could I maybe buy for anominal fee, and reach that cust-status to possibly make me eligible for other things of interest? TY.
