    This is freaking depressing if it turns out to be true! I will most assuredly leave Windows Phone for the Z2, which will be available probably months before whatever is announced hits the shelves anyway, if this really happens. How can T-Mobile be so stupid? I'm tired of getting the hand-me-downs when it comes to Windows Phone. ATT got the HTC Titan. T-Mobile got the Radar(and let me go on record saying I absolutely enjoyed that device except for the very restricted 8gb of storage) ATT also got the Samsung Focus and Focus2. ATT got the Nokia Lumia 900. T-Mobile got the 710. ATT got the 920 and the 1020. T-Mobile got a beautiful but flawed(16gb) 925. And of course we get the awesome 521(sarcasm!) I guess my real issue is with T-Mobile's WP selections and the affect that Nokia's exclusive relationship with ATT has had on Windows Phone as a whole. We're fighting for market share and fighting amongst each other within our ecosystem. I love my carrier but I hate the selections available for consumers like me. I'm done ranting now.:) Happy Friday folks.

    Those dudes are so wrong.
    The 630 is moneypenny, not monarch.
    Yes, Moneypenny is a 630. No reason the Monarch couldn't be a 63x variant. It could very well be a 630 without LTE, single sim, and a few other features added/missing. Remember, the Icon and Martini should essentially be the same phone, but they don't share names. So, once again. Let's not put too much stock in a name. TMO's history with Nokia is never getting a flagship at launch. If this has indeed changed, I might consider it since it would mean TMO is quite serious about getting the latest and greatest.

    wow , looks like t-mobile will get a new windows phone 8.1 flagship probably another variant of Lumia 930
    It better be at least the equivalent of the Icon. The 930 supports the extra row of tile?

    Lumia 630 and 635 are Moneypenny.
    Monarch is something still unknown.

    With a codename like "Monarch", it should be the 1030, shouldn't it?

    Don't think that phone will get replaced anytime soon.

    I usually get Androids due to specs but I prefer the Windows OS. However, lack of a current high-end T-Mobile tailored Windows Phone left me with the Nexus 5. However if the Monarch is in fact a high end device it would be a really compelling offer. I usually actually use a Windows OS styled home screen over my phones because I prefer the moving tiles and whatnot.
    I don't understand because the Lumia has been voted by WP Central as the best Windows Phone and its on T-Mo so idk what you mean by lack of high end, I do agree I'd rather have a 1020 but what made you forgo the 925 and get a Nexus?

    If it is a 930 variant... I'll go for an unlocked international 930. I don't trust TMO to support the device before the year ends. They've screwed me over with the 810, and I'm not sure I'm in the mood to play this game again. I have my doubts over the flagship aspect as well.
    Even though they have been supporting the 925..!! Don't get me wrong I'm not a huge fan of T-Mo when it comes to WP but they are supporting better and the 810 was a sh*try phone plus it was ugly as sin, as much as I hate android ai would have gotten an android over the 810 any day!! Shoulda just got the 8X at least that you could the developer preview

    It's probably a 630 variant as an upgrade to the 520. I think it was just leaked in china at $150. Looks like a reasonable replacement to the 520.
    I'm pretty sure they have already said the 630 is going to the big 3 that being Verizon, TMo, and AT&T but I could be mistaken, but I also don't think their codenamed that they would name something Monarch then make it an entry level phone...

    I am afraid Monarch gonna be Lumia 630, and the flagship will go to AT&T.
    How do you figure this we didn't get he number one but we got the number 2 and as WP Central argued its actually the number 1 so to say it'll be a 630 is a bit ridiculous to me

    I don't understand how you guys don't remember that there was a time when the TMo was the ONLY one with the 925 in the US! So for you to think that this would be TMo first great phone ur just down right silly! I'm not gonna fool myself and think its gonna be the best one in the US I'm sure that will still go to AT&T (hopefully we'll somehow both get the best) but I really can't see T-Mo going from 925 to just a 630.i think they get the 630 and whatever high end the Monarch will be.

    The 925 was a 920 variant. That's why no one has said that TMO got a true flagship. That came 6 months later, and had gimped storage. There is no reason to think that TMO would care to push for a flagship when their lower end offerings have sold far far better. A 630 variant wouldn't be a 925 replacement. Chances are it would replace the 520 or 810. The 925 will likely remain their flagship into the near future. I doubt TMO really cares enough to bring us a flagship... would be nice, but their history of support for WP7 and 8 so far has been hella sketchy.

    Also...

    How was the 810 a ****ty phone? Personally I found it to be a great midrange device. Expandable storage and a removable battery was exactly what I wanted, and it was what I got. The 8x at the time lacked pretty much everything I wanted/needed. And regardless of your opinion, not supporting an exclusive advice is crap business practice. Personally I thought the 810 was/is a wonderfully understated device. At the time I did buy it I assumed it was going to received a modicum of support, so telling me to have gotten the 8x is 20/20 hindsight.

    If that was the case... I'd have gotten a 920 on AT&T.

    Well there goes my thought that the Monarch would be a 930 variant. *Takes note to lower my expectations* Should've been 'Nokia Prince/Princess'....... Nokia Jester.

    Oh look. I was right all along. Moral of the story here? Do NOT put stock into a code name. They are plentiful, and rarely useful at telling what a device actually is. After all... I can't imagine the disappointment some people experienced when the Huron turned out to be an ATIV SE, and not a lake.

    The 925 is a mid tier device. They haven't had a flagship Windows Phone since launch Wp7. The 925 lacks built in wireless charging and only has 16gigs of memory. We need a top tier device like the 930 or 1520.3

    Sent from LG G2 on T-Mobile. come on T-Mobile get a flagship Windows Phone!!!!!
