    c'mon guys

    how could it possibly be sold out? no adverts, no marketing, and it's sold out on the second day of preordering? what, did Nokia make 75 lumia 900's?

    common sense please!
    ya never know man. there was probably a small pre order availability because the other units have to be for retail sale. This phone has been hyped on the net for months the it wins best in show at Barcelona the sales could have been huge

    Well, I would assume that some of the people on this site were among the first to preorder, correct? And they are getting a "backorder" notification? Again, do we really think Nokia made 100 devices? I find it impossible to believe that someone who ordered this device within an hour of it being available has a device on "backorder."

    Also, how many people on this site have preordered a device that isn't on "backorder?" It seems that everyone who preordered is on "backorder." Doesn't that reason that all the devices are listed as "backordered?" I would bet the farm it's simply a stock status, not a reflection of a shortage

    I got a say it has gotten a lot of visibility in Engadget, The Verge and in every big blog there is.

    That said, i agree that there's no way it's sold out.

    I'm not seeing anything on the "legitimate" blogs yet. I will say, if this is some marketing ploy by MS/Nokia/AT&T to make it appear that sales are insane, and then in 3 months we find out that the market share is still less than 3% (or whatever the absurd number is) I'll be extremely unhappy...

    The questions is, has anyone from wpcentral, or anywhere else for that matter, not recieved that email? It seems that everyone who preordered has gotten it, which should set your mind at ease.

    Some blog guy got an email from a friend who probably got the same email as the rest of us.. not exactly smoking gun.

    When the iPhone 4 was released everyone who preordered online with at&t were "backordered." Here is a thread of 1,700 where people had their orders on "backorder". Most still got them a day before launch.

    I meant the AT&T preorder announcement for Lumia 900 got a lot of visibility from the big blogs.

    People are just mixing this email have been discussing here and Nokia, WP blogs picking it up thinking the device is sold out.

    I doubt Nokia or AT&T would benefit announcing one day after preorders that the device is sold out.

    Oh right, sorry, I misinterpreted what you said. And yes, I agree, limiting shipments to appear sold out only a day after preorders begin wouldn't be a good thing. I'm sure that's not the case.

    Unless they really are sold out. They are pushing this phone hard and I would imagine they are getting a train load of them. If they still managed to sell out in 24 hours, it puts them in rare company (iPhone).

    With all of you guys getting this email exactly 24 hours after ordering, this must be an automated system email. I ordered at 11am today, so I should get mine tomorrow. I don't think we should panic. :-)

    It's been over 24 hours since I preordered online and I haven't received the email. I used my upgrade. Keeping my fingers crossed though.

    I'm wondering whether the people receiving these emails preordered online or in store.

    Hello everyone,

    I ordered the Lumia 900 this morning (about 8AM eastern time) from the AT&T website for $0.00. I received a comfirmation email immediately and another about a half hour later which reads:
    "We have processed your order and it has been sent to our warehouse for shipment.

    Your order cannot be changed or canceled at this time."

    Hope you guys all get yours as well :)

    I have not gotten a note/email/anything that the warehouses are out of phones from COR. I'm at work, there is not any message in our POS that says we are out of Lumias. This is most likely automated because the phones are not fully loaded into the inventory system yet. This happens every iPhone launch also, guys.

    here you go guys!:)


    Evelyn: Hello, thank you for chatting with AT&T today. I see that you have a question regarding tracking of an order. Is that correct?
    Andrea Maietta: yes
    Evelyn: I will be more than happy to assist you today, Mr. Maietta.
    Evelyn: In order to protect your privacy, may I please have the First Name, Last Name, and the last four digits of the Social Security Number associated with this account?
    Andrea Maietta: Andrea Maietta xxxx
    Evelyn: Thank you for that information.
    Andrea Maietta: youre welcome
    Evelyn: I have located your order placed on 3/30/12 for the Nokia Lumia 900 phone. Is this correct?
    Andrea Maietta: yes it is
    Evelyn: That is wonderful because the telephone is not on backorder. What it is, is that the delivery for that phone does not begin until 4/3/12. This is the pre-order for that phone. Sorry for the confusion.
    Evelyn: I am sorry the date for the delivery is 4/5/12 not 4/3/12.
    Andrea Maietta: so why did i receive an email stating that it was on back order?
    Evelyn: Because we do not have that device in our warehouse as of yet.
    Andrea Maietta: ok so it is still set for a 4/5/12 ship date?
    Evelyn: Yes, that is correct, Mr. Maietta.
    Andrea Maietta: thank you

    If the situation becomes so dire that AT&T doesn't have enough phones, the retail store reps would get a giant pop-up window that says STOP ORDERS every time we logged in.

    I am not worried about anyone not getting the phone. I don't know how many the stores will get, but I know that if almost every rep in retail got one as a COU device, there will be tons for sale.

    Thanks for that update AndreaCristiano. Mine says Processing, and I never got any backorder notification. I really think AT&T has plenty of these to fufill the orders.

    I got one e-mail from AT&T saying that my Lumia 900 will be delivered on or before April 6th. I got this e-mail yesterday at 3:40PM EST. I've received no further e-mails since then.

    I got skittish about ordering accessories with my phone order so I ordered my gel case as a separate order a few hours later. I felt that if there is anything that could hold up an entire order, it's not a lack of phones, but a lack of accessories. Not knowing exactly how the ordering system works, I felt it'd be better to be on the safe side and keep the two orders (one for the phone and the other for the $20 skin).

    My phone is on "pre-order" status. My gel case is "processing".

    My source with at&t wasn't much help. They could indeed be sold out because they didn't expect this many preorders, they could be sold out as a publicity stunt, or they could be backordered until they are actually ready to ship.

    His gut says it's the latter as he's seen nothing cross his desk about the unavailabilty of the Lumia 900 and he's the last person you talk to when you've gotten nowhere with other CS reps.
