    Anything at all in the pipeline for ATT? The screen on my 920 cracked badly and I need to get a replacement. I am not particularly enamored with any of the options that ATT currently has, but I may have to settle if nothing good is on the way. I would also be interested in the ICON, if one is available unlocked.

    ​Thanks in advance.

    The Icon is available unlocked by default, but it would take some prodding to get everything working right. (see relevant data and MMS threads)

    I'm pretty sure we can expect to see the 930 on ATT sometime this summer. I could be mistaken though.

    Thanks. I'm not into needing to prod my phones to work properly, so that is definitely not an option. If the 930 is coming, perhaps I will just take the replacement phone from my protection plan, and wait on the 930 before I re-up my contract.

    It's not like fancy modding and hacking, you would just have to change the options in the access point settings panel.
    But it still isn't out-of-the-box.

    I haven't checked out those threads, but they probably are a good read if someone has settings that work. Then it becomes less "prodding" and more being able to type the right things in the right text boxes.

    Thanks. I think I am just going to get the replacement from my protection plan, and then upgrade a few months down the road when something comes to ATT that is worth switching for.

    I appreciate the suggestions.

    Well, it has been almost 5 months since I started this thread. Any news on what is coming down the pike for ATT?

    No idea, but if the 920 is still working for you, enjoy a $25 discount for as long as you can resist upgrading after that contract runs out.

    The 920 still works, but I am way past ready for an upgrade.

    my upgrade just kicked in today. I'm hoping something leaks or an announcement is made hopefully soon so that I can weigh my options.

    I'm pretty frustrated as well by the lack of a new WP flagship on ATT.

    I'm still on the Lumia 900. I should have upgraded when the 920 came out, I really should have upgraded when the 925 came out, and I was crazy not to upgrade when the 1520 came out. Not sure what I was waiting for, but now I want a new one asap and I'm screwed. I'm DEFINITELY going to get the next high end phone available for AT&T... but in the mean time, should I just get a $135 Lumia 920 off Ebay until then? I really don't want to spend more, yet I really want 8.1 and something a bit quicker, because browsing sites has become excruciatingly slow.

    Windows has still September of next year to pull something out of the hat, currently using a 1020 which I am not disappointed in one bit but not happy that it will not get Denim, the iPhone and watch are calling my name since Apple finally got the larger screen I wanted and the ability to pay withoout having to dig in my purse to find my wallet to get the credit card out is highly attractive. There are apps I will miss from Windows and the live tiles but I am tired of seeing apps I want on here only to see them say Android and Apple only. I downloaded the 3rd party app for Starbucks but now it says no longer being published which means no more updates

    Sure, get one from eBay but don't spend that much, unless you can't be satisfied with anything less than pristine new condition. I just bought a "fair condition" 920 from eBay user "cellularheroes" for less than $70, I was pleasantly surprised when I got it, its condition was much better than the one in the photos. Just a few minor scratches on the glass you only see in reflections when the display is off.
    ...currently using a 1020 which I am not disappointed in one bit but not happy that it will not get Denim...
    Actually it will get Denim, just won't get the higher-end features that require better hardware.

    Here is the problem and major difference between apple and ms: I have a 920 and am at the end of my two year contract. I purchased it the day it came out as a replacement to my samsung focus also purchased the day it came out. None of the currently announced phones are high end flagship phones and I therefore have no choice for a replacement! This is bad business. Now, Apple is dedicated to making their customers revised/new models which will coincide with the standard two year upgrade cycle. Get it right MSFT!!!

    I've given up on WP because MSFT doesn't seem interested in producing high end phones. They seem to be trying to make the world a better place with low and mid range phones for emerging markets. I sold my 1520 and bought a Sony Z Ultra to hold me over until the Nexus 6 is readily available. From what I can tell Android 5.0 is going to be the most polished, complete phone OS ever, period. That includes the latest iOS. Google, Motorola, Samsung, LG and HTC are killing it compared to Microsoft and Nokia. It's just not even close. Life is too short to sit around waiting on Microsoft the get their arse in gear.

    I have had similar thoughts along the way. In fact, I got an iPhone 6 to give it a try and am in the process of switching back to WP now, having just purchased a 1520.3 today. I found myself really missing the operating system almost immediately and the improvement in app availability, which is indeed significant, was not enough to offset that for me. With the coming OS for MS, I think we will see an explosion of apps for Windows (developers will have a strong incentive when you consider the number of PC users). I am also frustrated by the lack of a new Lumia high end phone, but I think MS is smart at some level in focusing on lower end phones as well. That is the mode that android has used, and they have captured a very large % of market share by doing so. People like us, who are on these forums, want the flagship phone. The average person probably doesn't care so much.

    The difference is that Android has had a steady stream of hero phones by multiple manufacturers. Your choices are plenty.

    Very true. I was with them prior to moving to WP and did not particularly enjoy the experience. Having said all of that, you are totally correct that Android having those flagship phones offsets the flood of lower level phones that they use to pump up their numbers.

    Yep, right now you have the HTC M8, Samsung S5 and Note 4, LG G3, Motorola Nexus 6 and Sony just announces the Z3 LTE for GSM carriers. If you want an Android superphone it's just a matter of picking one.
