    Don't you just pay the prorated early termination fee? It's probably like $20 a month left on your contract.

    Don't know about early upgrade fee. I'm elligible for an upgrade, so I took a look at what the activation fee would be through Best Buy when ordering the Nokia 920, it's $36.

    From Best Buy's website regarding the Lumia 900: Early termination fees will be prorated, starting at $325 minus $10 for each full month of service commitment completed.

    So, if you bought a Lumia 900 in mid-April, and upgraded to a Lumia 920 January 1st, you would have completed eight months of service, and the early upgrade fee would be $245.

    So, a new Lumia 920 would set a launch-time buyer of the Lumia 900 back about $400 ($245 + $150 + other fees), about $200 cheaper than the unlocked price. Not too bad, considering you can still keep the Lumia 900 and use it as a small WiFi tablet, give it to someone, or sell it on eBay.

    Also remember that the Lumia 900 was effectively free for launch-time buyers, considering the data-bug $100 rebate. So, it's tough to feel too sour about the present upgrade cost.
