    And when we find out it's $149, we will have people crying about it not being $99 now.
    you may go alone to the corner now. :)

    Happy to see this news today. I'll be picking mine up Friday morning. I need to return the 900 I just had to buy by next weekend. Waiting for the 8x to pick a phone is out of the question. Contract price is really exciting, too bad I'm an off contract buyer this time around. Can't wait.

    That is what happens when you rely on an ATT source, they are just as clueless as everyone else outside of ATT. Not even my corporate reps that we have knew anything.

    Yea I never said he was lying. I said he was lying or the guy at att didn't know what he was talking about and that it was probably the latter. It's just a way of being facetious while really only implying the second statement.

    You can cry all day and night about what I said but the fact of the matter is, I got Halo 4 yesterday, I get an Obama win today, and preorder a 920 for $99 tomorrow.

    I won life this week.
    Oh you're an Obama supporter? It all makes sense now.

    I don't know about a midnight pre-order date but I jumped onto AT&T Wireless online support chat to inquire about the delivery date for the 920's... The agent said that the phones ship 2-3 business days so I'd say 50/50 about actually getting the handset this week if you order online.

    I asked if I'm better off going to the store to make sure I get the phone launch day and the agent generally agreed with the statement but noted she had no info about store sales.

    Thanks for asking... I guess maybe at midnight/pre-order time we will find out what the shipping looks like

    At that price I don't see why anyone would by any of the other WP8 offerings.

    99.99?!?!? If that's true.. Ima do backflips.
    Well yea it is this year because it's Sunday lol



    It isn't happening bud.
    Because we have already seen Best Buy and Ebay/BBY open preorders for $149 and on Nokia's on 920 page they had a picture showing a phone that said $149 AT&T

    Here are the gems of the thread. Just eat your crow and move on. It should be quite tasty today with the news of the 920.

    Tried calling a couple stores to see if they'd have units on Friday: one didn't answer, and the other one said "that's the first I've heard of this" when I mentioned the press release, and said he had no idea when they'd have anything in stock.

    Good to see the Lumia 920 getting the solid support it deserves in order to generate sales.... :-p

    Yeah I think it's because Nokia is still very much an international company. Focus on the US market is still a weak point in their strategy.

    This was sort of answered earlier in the thread, but I'm looking for some clarification.

    I'm a current VZW customer and really want the 920. My contract ended yesterday.

    Can I pre-order online with AT&T? If so, will my VZW iPhone 4 continue to function until I receive the 920? I want to port my number over, but I've never pre-ordered from a different carrier before so I'm not sure how it will work.

    Does anyone have any experience with doing a pre-order on a device while you are still a customer of a different wireless provider?

    Thanks on advance.

    Pre-orders simply take down your information. Nothing gets processed till the phone is prepped to ship. In the case of porting your number, I would actually hold off on that. Normally they'll start the process before shipping your phone, which can potentially disconnect your current Verizon line before the phone gets to you.

    Do the port after you get your new phone. Not to mention, this gives you time to try the phone before jumping ship from Verizon and potentially losing out on the upgrade you currently have available to you.

    Once you are all settled in your new Lumia on AT&T and are ready to bring your number over, simply dial 611, talk to a rep, and tell them you want to port a number. They'll get things started for you, and bring you number over.

    One of two things might happen.

    Once you pre-order the phone, they might no activate the ported line. One you get the phone, then you can call to the customer care and activate it.

    The other way is, just order the phone as a new line... once you get the phone, call the customer service and put in a porting request. Once the number is ported, the other line with VZW should automatically cancel.

    I've done a corporate wide migration and dealt with a lot of porting from Tmobile to ATT, so i am applying this based on my experience with Tmobile to ATT.

    let verizon know you are planning to port, they will note it on their system and the porting process would be initiated by ATT once you are in store to buy. If you decide to preorder and get teh phone shipped to you, just go through the porting process through online portal of customer service, your existing phone should work until you actually activate the phone. So you literally can receive your att phone and hold for 10 days and your current verizon phone will still work until it activates. That is was the case when we did ports.

    So I actually was able to walk into my local Best Buy on Monday and put down money for the phone - they had it in the system and told me it would be "probably before the holidays" that I would get it (and knowing the 9th was the favored date I thought I'd take a chance).

    The two things they weren't able to tell me: price and color availability. It's my first preorder (and first purchase from Best Buy); anyone have insight on how this'll work now that AT&T has announced availability? Will I have first dibs on color choice?

    i want to give props to @jsgiv for bringing this news to the forum, even if some on here were skeptical to say the least.
    Sometimes, it pays to be a wait and see guy and not a "it aint happening" guy :)
    that all said...
    Extremely happy that this is the price :D
