    I doubt it, but you could always look to sell it on ebay/craigs list.

    I will be passing my L900 on to a friend, after I get the 920. I could probably sell my old phones, but I prefer giving them to friends that need them. Kinda like finding a home for a kitten.

    Actually I don't see it with just the Nokia line. I wouldn't be surprised to see if MS did something like this through their MS Stores to increase foot traffic there and to try and get some goodwill from all the 7.5 customers. Also because Apple does it.

    I would be interested in a buy-back program as well.

    I love my Lumia 900, and don't need the latest and greatest, but am taking issue with it being obsoleted just 5 months after it was first released. I'd be happy if MS/Nokia/AT&T offered pretty much any financial incentive to make it easier to upgrade from a 900 to a 920. Plus, I imagine doing so would also help significantly to inflate the 920's initial sales numbers ;)

    I agree it's Microsoft's job, not Nokia's. Setting aside my narrow self interest, I think it'd be a smart, if expensive, move for Microsoft. It was really pretty shabby treatment of their early-adopter base, and any act of contrition should help rebuild goodwill, and if done right, make for good PR.

    You do realise Microsoft make like $10 a phone. Add that to the billions they've put into Nokia, and then tell me where Microsoft are making enough money off Nokia phones to warrant giving you money?

    i emailed AT&T the other day just for the **** of it to see if there were any rumblings of any kind of incentive to help out those who are going to want to purchase the 902's outright. here's the expected response i got:

    Unfortunately, we have not had any communication regarding any price
    breaks for the Lumia 900 users at this point. I apologize for any
    inconvenience.

    HTC's buyback program is offering $175 for the Lumia 900 if you buy a new HTC phone. I'm still leaning towards the 920 though.

    Wow! That's pretty aggressive! $175 is a lot compared to what eBay and other sites are currently offering.

    No, you don't.

    The only thing that is ridiculous is thinking that the phone you probably really liked the day before the 920 was announced is suddenly a worthless piece of junk you can't wait to get rid off.

    I plan on keeping my 900 until the end of my contract, you should too.

    I honestly think that if people try Windows Phone, they will like it. Maybe they won't love it, but they will at least appreciate the fact that settings aren't buried and navigating the phone is easy enough tackle without an engineering degree. (I'm attempting to be funny)

    Can you make an Android based device just as intuitive? Yes.

    Here's the problem:

    Unless it is a stock device, don't expect frequent updates
    Unless it was made by Nokia, don't expect great support

    Once you get into the Huawei's and Zio's of the world you lose that wonderful support. Samsung is a large enough company but they take a device like the Galaxy S3 and make it feel cheap. By comparison you have the HTC One X that is a sexy unibody design with a gorgeous screen and camera....yet it only has 1GB of RAM and the skin/theme for the interface hogs up a good portion of your memory.

    I need my Lumia back. Well, maybe a Blue one. Or the Black. I can't decide. Yes, I'm crazy.
