    Hey guys I have been an avid lurker for 2 weeks now. I have to thank you all because you all helped me get my Nokia Lumia 900. I ordered my phone at the corporate store here in Ft. Lauderdale on Monday. I received my phone from Fedex at 2:00pm this afternoon. I am loving this phone is remarkably beautiful. I am in awe with the device!! If I have one complaint it would be that when I received the package it was open with the aim installed in the phone. Why did they pull the package and break the seal and install the microsim???

    The best buy is the Zagg invisible maximum shield

    Nokia Lumia 900 Screen Protector | invisibleSHIELD by ZAGG

    Can you order this in an AT&T store and can they install it for you? I am worried if I order online, I might mess up the installation and waste 25$

    Got mine today. It seems to turn on automatically when charging? When I turn it off, it turns back on by itself when charging. Weird. Aside from that, do I have to fully charge it before I can activate it on AT&T network?

    Great feel and superb design. I love it.
    Don't worry, nothing wrong with your device, all windows phones do this. Not quite sure why but it doesn't really bother me.

    Thanks for the reassurance. Sorry first time user. Can I use it while charging or do I have to wait until I activate it before I can play around with it?

    I believe you can buy from store and request them to install it. Its pretty easy to do it. you can watch the installation video on the website.

    Yes you can use it while charging, the phone wakes up once you plugin to charge as WP OS was built that way.

    Thanks! I must say, I really like the phone... but the clearblack display reveals too much smudges! I've washed my hands several times to avoid dirtying the immaculate black screen, but it didnt work:@

    Yes, it does smudge. The best way to sort the issue is buy a screen protector from either ebay or from store. make sure the screen protector is anti-glare and dust repelling.

    Got mine a couple of hours ago. Best thing about this phone over the Focus, battery life. Currently my Focus has 35% battery and is estimating 3 hours until death. Lumia 900, 45% and 15 hours.

    Is anyone experiencing some lag with the Windows Button down below? Whenever I tap on it, it's supposed to go to the tiles menu/home right? Sometimes it doesnt work and sometimes for no reason at all, the talk (siri version, idk) pops up and activates on it's own Sorry, I am an android user and I am confused with the interface T_T

    It's a tad slow when you press the middle windows Icon but it takes you back to main screen. Pressing the middle Windows icon hard will bring up Windows Tell me aka Siri like voice interface to assist you!!

    Got mine today at the BX.. was kinda suprised, I figured I'd have to wait till monday to get ahold of one.

    A little underwhelmed so far. The Nokia and ATT logo's as well as the FCC/Serial #'s on the bottom are just killing it for me right now.. along with the fact that the front and the back are both fingerprint magnets.

    Been using Android for 2.5 years now and I'm coming from a galaxy nexus.. hard going from a 720p screen to the 480x800 again but I'll get by. REALLY hard messing with my wife's brand new Note though.. that thing is tempting me.

    I'm gonna give this phone a couple weeks to see if it grows on me.. if it does I'll probably exchange it for the white one.. I figure the glossy/smooth white won't show as many fingerprints. If the phone doesn't grow on me I'll probably just pick up the note.

    Hi, my Lumia 900 for some reason is bringing up Bing even without me pressing anything, then after that, it brings up the Siri-like companion and everything freezes. Am I doomed?

    Has anyone tried a MS store to see if they'll release them then since everyone is getting their pre-orders today?

    I think it might be a technical issue with your phone. Try turning of your phone for 5 minutes and turn it back on and see what happens!!

    FedEx, YOU BLEW IT!!!
    My phone was shipped yesterday, overnight fedex... I waited all day long. It said it was on the truck for delivery and now it says it went back to the fedex facility.

    Took today off to go to Opening Day (Go O's!) and was hoping the phone would arrive before I left my apartment at noon... nope. I figured I would need to sign for it, so I got a little bummed thinking that I might now be able to play with the phone until Monday. But I sure as **** wasn't going to miss Opening Day, so I figured it would just have to wait.

    When I got home around 7pm, a little cardboard box was waiting for me outside of my apartment! It was featureless - no markings, addresses, etc. I brought it in, opened it up, and there was the Lumia. I've been playing with it for a while.

    The only annoyance so far is that I'll have to go to the AT&T store tomorrow morning to get my port sorted out - I spent 30 minutes on the phone with someone domestically, and then someone in India, trying to get my number transferred over, but since I had already used the sim card (it came pre-installed), I'll have to get another sim card to do the port? I don't know anything about sim cards - this is my first GSM phone - so tomorrow hopefully the AT&T store will get everything sorted out.
