    I'm hoping for Worst Buy to carry it, because that's how I got my 822 free on launch day - they matched Walmart Wireless' online free price. This is one of the FEW times I'll go to Worst Buy for ANYTHING.

    I spoke to Best Buy earlier today in my area and so far the phone doesn't even show up in their system. Was hoping they would have it in stock day one as I could just use my reward points.

    Yeah I have a Buy Back with BB so I would get money for my old phone.
    By the 928 out right save my upgrade for next march for a better device.

    Sitting in Microsoft Store Atlanta, using their WiFi and JBL Power Up speaker to charge my phone, play Pandora, and restore the backup from my L822, while playing with a Surface Pro. It doesn't get much better than this.

    Note - if you have an old phone you're going to not use anymore, bring it. I used the recycle program to get $63 for my day one Trophy, and got another $25 credit for taking the BingItOn challenge. Of course, I didn't actually take the challenge - I did that on my own months ago. The guy believed me because I walked in with my Windows Phone shirt on, a Trophy to recycle, an 822 that I was already using, and a Microsoft Press pen in my pocket.

    If you upgrade at the Microsoft store do you still get the $50 rebate or is it just the $150 prerebate price?

    What are the advantages to getting it in MS stores? Are there any taxes, activation fees or discounts?

    $50 taken off at register rather than mail-in rebate.
    But no $25 gift card.
    They also offer an insurance policy they claim is cheaper ($99 vs whatever per month) and better (new replacements rather than refurb) if insurance is your thing.

    Thanks Judge. Does the $50 work on full price phones? And I thought that the $25 Windows app promo was a MS promo where you can use your IMEI number to get the promo. Not sure though...

    I didn't get $50 taken off, but I did get $63 for my Trophy in the recycle program, $25 for the BingItUp challenge, and didn't have to wait for a rebate. I DID get the $25 card, but for those who didn't, just go to Window Phone App Redemption

    Hmm, I think I'll stop by the Microsoft store first then and check it out. I've never had an insurance policy on a phone but for $100 it may be worth it considering I'd rather not put a case on the phone. I have a Trophy as well, but I'd rather keep it as it's still in perfect condition even after 2 years.

    I did end up getting my 928 from the San Diego Microsoft store. They had sold 9 of the 10 they got. I also got the protection plan as the deductible is $50. After the Bing it on challenge, the total price was $180.

    Live near Chicago. Best Buy's around here didn't have a demo nor actual for sale units. The Verizon store I went too had a demo you could actually play with running however none of the stores they checked had any inventory for sale. I got mine at the Microsoft store in Oak Brook mall. They only have the white ones till next week which was fine for me. Never had anything other then a black phone before so figured trying a different color for a chance could be interesting.
