    I buy all of my phones used. Be patient and wait for someone to mess up. it takes time but I got my lumia 900 with all the stuff in the box and a case for $225 US in June before the announcement. I got my titan for $325 brand new. I refuse to extend contracts with these U.S. carriers.
    Yeah I second that!! I'm on straight talk using a Focus S and an HTC Amaze as backup. $45 a month and never have to worry about overages. I may pick up a Titan 2 or wait til the WP8 phones can be had used for $300-ish or less, sometime next year.

    After seeing all that goodness going into Windows Phone 8. Its a nice first gen but first gen none the less.
    It's a just a feeling of relative deprivation rather that your Lumia becoming first generation. This kind of thinking means that every new handset that comes into the market every month will make the previous month's new ones a generation lesser.

    I think it is pretty clear that it's not because the age itself or that there will be newer devices here soon it feels like a first gen.

    It's because many of the basic software improvements in WP8 will never hit the Lumia 900, and because it won't be compatible with WP8-apps.

    The time from release to being phased out must be some kind of record.

    What's so confusing to me is, that everyone made fun of Android and iOS, that they have to buy a phone for updates/SIRI and now we have an even worse situation and everyone is fine with it and gets a new phone asap.
    I got a HTC One X for free some days after the annoucement and will probably stick to it, I even prefer is hardware wise to my 900, it's on par with the 800.

    I keep trying to explain this to people especially the iPhone users who are seriously being taken advantage of.

    now you're putting words in the op's mouth. It's clear to me that you're pissed about 7.8 and never seem to miss a beat in stating so. We get it. Now move along

    I'm glad you're happy with the one x. Great hardware. Personally, I don't make fun of any OS supporter and just want people to be happy with their purchase. For me, 7.8 will be fine AND compatible.

    I have a question. If Nokia released a phone that, on the outside, was a Lumia 900 clone, would your Lumia 900 still be looking old/first-gen?

    I think this whole concept is sort of silly. By this logic, the iPhone 4S (and more than likely iPhone "5") will look old since the OS appears to be virtually identical to the original iPhone. Similarly, your home computer probably looks rather similar to one of your first computers. Let me guess, your desktop chassis is a rectangular cube in shape

    It will look old when it comes to features and ability to run new apps.

    I'm still getting lots of complements and "Wow, is that the new Windows Phone? - Cool!" type comments on my Lumia 900. I still play with it all the time and don't feel at all like it's first gen. The advanced features (to match the hardware) of WP8 sound great, but I'm very happy with what I have now and am looking forward to the 7.8 update.

    AT&T recently shut down some towers in my area, so a ton of their customers are coming in looking to port to VZW. Its hard to find a phone for them when they have a Lumia 900, because Droids suck and the Trophy isn't 4G
