    Has anyone noticed that on the online MS store, all but one or two Lumia's are out of stock? With no option to add to cart and email when it comes in stock.

    Depends on how many a seller has in stock, I would think. There might be contractual stipulations with MS and sellers to return on a certain date. I'm TOTALLY guessin' man.

    Although you'd think up I've seen somewhat of a decline in pricing, model dependant.

    Yeah the stock thing has me a tad worried... Have a defunct Lumia 650 that we sent back to Microsoft for an exchange and because of THEIR f-up progression has been grounded for some time, basically the screw-up seemingly has now become MY problem and we're not impressed.

    Anyhow, now having this post sink in we've decided to order another today through Amazon.ca from a seller within Canada so that all our accessories don't go to waste ( FYI I'm a case junkie LOL)... Have zero faith in MS after my latest dealings.

    I'll be interesting to see if my bad luck continues, another defective device or will we finally get lucky, after-all tis a new year?

    Why would prices for Lumias go up?
    Hardly anybody wants a Lumia.....!
    Economy working......Supply and demand working...
    Prices will fall like they always did......I've seem Lumia 950 starting at almost 600€
    Now they are around 250€....exactly because nobody wants a piece of plastic with an OS that MS killed.

    Think of Lumias like cars.......a Ferrari Dino is a classic and is worth every penny.
    Lumia is.........Trabant level. Nobody wants it and it won't be missed.

    Finding that too, if found it's usually one place to purchase only. Initially paid $99 for the 650 through MS but Amazon.ca seller had it for $145, thought we'd better accept the lumps now before the option to get one vanished.

    You'd be surprised, sellers don't necessarily look at the demand but also the supply. If there's limited quantities and they know it there's a tendency to go the scalper's route, whether any sell at inflated rates who knows but it doesn't stop many from doing so.

    I beg to differ....demand for Lumias was never this low as it is now
    Sellers want to get rid of items they know are hard to sell. (or almost unsellable)
    Windows 10 mobile presently has less than 1% Market share......how can anyone (including sellers) anticipate an increase in sales?
    Come on.....that's just wishful thinking.....
    As much as I hate Apple.....Lumia's are not IPhones........

    Going by my country, the limited resources to obtain, prices are far from being considered bargain basement for any WP. Like I said, whether they sell any who knows but obviously Windows Phone's market shares haven't been much of an influence in pricing from what I've seen, and we do check often.

    Android and Apple freaks are just like any other freak.....
    I can't understand why is ITunes still alive.....its probably the worst piece of sh*t software I've ever seen to interact with any mobile phone.
    Nokia PC Suite is jurassic and it's still an example of software connection between a phone and a computer

    Back to MS:
    MS really has to get their head straight.
    The recent news on ARM processors being able to run W10 full version can be the change MS needs....but we have to see it to believe it.
    Thing is......I thought it would be direct and not via emulation......and as I understood, (at least on a first stage) it will be via emulation...which is not exactly the same as clean and direct as it would be if not emulated.

    Basically....lets just hope it's not another shot right through their own foot.....MS doesn't have that many more feet to shoot at....

    I'd rather be with MS, who is looking forward and creating change, than more of the same with the other two. I have a 5x, and it's OK, but nothing exciting.
    It's not easy to be patient I understand but it will pay off in the end. Hoping my 950 and 640 get me through.

    It's not about sides anyways. It's about understanding the path.
