    I just want to let everyone know. Upgrades are only 19.99.. That is cheap. At first I thought it would be typo... because previously upgrades are 119.99. and they are always expensive than the New Contracts. I hope this would push some more sales of the Lumia.

    nah..it was worth the extra few $$ to have it 4 or 5 days earlier. :)

    We all know that no matter what you paid for an electronic device it's going to be cheaper in the future.

    Has anyone tried to contact Amazon? They do have a lowest price guarantee.

    AmazonWireless

    I'll try to contact them later on. I can't see why they wouldn't honor beating their own price. Haven't even gotten mine yet, so I don't think they can say it's justified by getting it early, lol.

    Ok, here's my dilema.

    I have a family plan, and want to upgrade at least 2 phones to the 900. At $99, the price of the phone is a good deal, however I have heard that getting AT&T to wave the 'upgrade activation' is near impossible now. That takes the price of the phones to $270 ($135x2). Getting the phones for $55 sounds a lot nicer (and is easier on the budget), but I have heard that AT&T will NOT match any other prices.

    I checked out the online deals, but If I go on amazon (or target) it only lets me select the 300mb data plan. I'm on the 200mb plan right now. I also like getting phones straight from the provider.

    Questions regarding getting a phone online (target or amazon)

    How can I keep my current data plan if they only list the 'new' data plan rates?
    If my phone breaks within my warranty period, can I just take it to the ATT repair center, or do I need to ship it back to target/amazon?

    Thanks,
    pez

    Pez, the reason for that is that you need to have atleast $20 data plan to get the price, and the 200mb plan is only $15.

    but i am running into similar problem, i have the 2gb for $25 plan and it still keeps asking me to select a data plan when I try to order it, seems like i'll have to just place the order on the phone.

    I don't think that is the issue. I talked with reps at an AT&T store, and they said that even though it said minimum $20 data plan, what it really meant was "a data plan" and that since the current lowest is $20, that's what the ad says. My other question about the warranty though.

    thanks,

    Question:

    I have a "ghost line".

    I will add this for $19.99 and immediately cancel the data plan?

    I don't see anywhere on amazon about a $250 amazon cancellation if you just cancel the data.

    You are only required to keep the line active for 6 months?

    Call ATT and tell them you are ordering through Amazon and ask them to park your current data plan, once done with the amazon order call them back and they will replace the new plan amazon added with the parked plan.

    Just to let people know, I just spoke with Amazon, and they easily refunded me back $100 difference with no hassle at all. The person that helped me was even shocked at the difference in price. Definately good customer support from them.

    Anybody know how long Amazon will sell the Lumia 900 at these low prices? Any chance they will still be $20 on May 1st (upgrade eligible on that day).
