    ... Now I decided to just wait it out and I am dealing with this crappy phone. I hope the 925 comes out soon I am so restless for it.
    I'm in the same boat as you dude.

    I've been holding out, but I am not sure how much longer that is going to work. I've been a huge WP person since it launched. Have had a HD7 Radar, now on a 810. If, they release the EOS and ATT gets it exclusive, I will probably drop Tmobile and swap to ATT. They strung this whole 925 thing out way too long. I was livid when ATT got the 920 exclusive to begin with, and only stayed with Tmo cuase i was under contract. Not any more though.

    TMO's network is fast enough and their prices are cheap enough that I can wait a couple months.

    521 is only $129 at HSN, or it was when I bought it. That's like giving up a latte every day for a month.

    Edit: it's $149 again, but it's in stock, and that's still just $5 a day. Even comes with a car charger!
    Walmart has it for $130. I'm thinking about picking it up to use for a few months until the new flagships of the fall arrive.

    If I needed a phone right away I'd get the cheapest thing they had and wait for the 925. I don't understand people who go out and get an expensive phone with a completely different OS. If you really wanted WP, then you would have either waited or got a 521 to tide you over.
    Because I need a solid phone with higher end camera for work - not big deal for me to buy the 925 when released and dump the S4. At the end it doesn't matter if you understand it or not and to assume if "I really wanted a WP" then I should wait isn't your call either. But thanks for your unwanted two cents regarding what I personally wanted or should have done though.

    That's great to see. I purchased a Lumia 521 the other day and it hasn't arrived yet. The only thing left for me to be concerned about is the screen. :)

    The screen looks very good. I have never been a fan of this super high resolution spec war that is going on. It is not good in daylight. It rings , I swipe up, I know where to touch to answer and I talk. I use it as a phone.................with benefits. I plan to get a 925 or an EOS and keep this for a spare but not right away.

    Received my new issue of Wired (USA edition) magazine today, included three page ad for the 925 with t-mobile branding. I hope this means availability is soon.

    When does Wired hit newsstands? Hehe. Newsstands. Do those still exist? Anyway, subscribers usually get the magazine before the general public. Do you know how far in advance? It might give us a better idea of when the phone should launch, since TMO wouldn't pay for a 3 page ad without the device ready to sell, right?

    Here some info I got...
    I just went to my local T-Mobile store for something completely different, and just asked about the 925, after the person there didn't even know the model of the phone they were getting (tried to argue it was the 921!!!) anyhow, I guess after the little "discussion" she opened her application and started reading...

    Their store will get the demo 925 next week!

    And she finally said that, they normally get the actual hardware 1 or 2 weeks after the demo ones... so I guess this means first or second week in July... there is finally some hope!!!

    That's good intel. By the looks of it the Wired magazine ad was paid for by Nokia, and featured the t-mobile logo. A magazine publisher basically locks down the full page ads about six weeks before they hit subscriber's mailboxes. So ads do regularly break early on new products. First or second week of July works for me.

    Now we just need a price. What do you think? $450? $500? $600?

    Awesome news! I'm definitely hoping for a price point of 450-500. Especially with just 16 GB.

    Its going to be $600 if you convert the price to dollars from how much its selling in other countries

    Nokia is having a 925 giveaway on their fb page. The contest drawing is on or about 7/7 so I'm thinking mid July as well. Good info here, thank you. However I can't help but be a little pessimistic because this STILL hasn't passed through the FCC to my knowledge. I check their website everyday

    I came here to post the same thing. Winners are contacted on July 7th, they have 5 days to send in their signed affidavit, and then they are "one of the first people to rock the brand new Nokia Lumia 925 with PureView when it goes on sale"

    Things may have changed for the better, but maybe not. I just checked the contest page and it says the closing date to sign up is June 30. The rules still say that the contest runs through July 6 and you have until then to enter. Did the page always say June 30, or is that a change?

    I noticed that a while ago. Always err on the side of the official rules though ;)

    Either way, we're looking at July.
