(you leave a lithium without charge or discharge for a year or more and it dies)
IDK, what to make of it.
Good point on the batteries. If not replaced, they would had to at least inspect each phone being sold, install latest software, etc. This is really strange. I can't imagine they would have ordered more production to restock for sale on MS store unannounced. The only way to access the phones is via the link. I went through all the menus and no way to get to these phones without link. Good material for an X-Files episode. I can't even rationalize why MS would do this now. Could it be an error? Has anyone actually ordered one?
