    For quite awhile you could not find the 640 anywhere; now they are everywere. I just picked one up from Cricket for 99$ with the 35$ a month plan and was thinking I just got a great deal. I walk into Wal-Mart the next day and they have the AT&T go phone 640 for 79.88$. And they have about 15 of them on display. Just to see I went by another Wal-Mart and they have them with three hooks full waiting to be sold. They also had the 635 and 435 on display at both store.Guest I aint so slick after all.

    I'm glad that they are, and I hope it can reach, if not surpass the success of the 520/521 series.

    It should take off, its a much better phone and the 520 sold for more than this when it came out. I am now carrying the 640 instead of my old reliable 820. Plan on keeping the 820 though as my backup just in case. My Moto G lte spends more time in Fort Worth than it does in my pocket, third return to be repaired. It isn''t even a year old (still under warranty) while my 820 is as good as the day I got it, over two years ago. Damn thing (820) is sturdy as a rock.

    I returned my ZTE Maven to Bestbuy today and was looking for the 640 there, none to be found. Ran across the street to Walmart and nabbed a 640. Redeemed the office 365 for the laptop. Super deal!!

    Just the small ones. AT&T (and the Microsoft Store) are the only ones who have the XL in the US.

    Swore I wouldn't buy the 640 because of the delayed release...

    I remember on June 18th of this year around 6:00 p.m. I jumped up out of my easy chair, crossed my arms, looked away and said:
    "nope...not me...I've had it...we are done Microsoft..."
    As soon as I spotted the 640 in the WalMart 2.7 miles away I entered a disconnected mental haze and heard myself asking the kind lady behind the counter to grab me one.
    I am weak...

    I know what you mean lol, I have the 635 and was fine with it UNTIL I saw the 640, no brainer for me with all the updates/upgrades over the 635. The 635 felt like a high end entry model whereas the 640 is truly a middle tier offering. I bought it and am VERY PLEASED.

    I remember getting my 521 and, as you say, it cost more than my 640 when I got it. The 640 basically fixes all the issues I had with my 521 such as battery life and poor screen readability in direct sunlight. If this had come out a year or so ago, I wouldn't have jumped to Android for a bit.

    It remains to be seen if this will be as successful as the 520/521 though considering the news Microsoft put out recently. Yes, we all know they are not discontinuing Windows Mobile, but I am not so sure the general public will be as convinced. Here's hoping that is as great a success, if not more though :)

    I had the same problem when getting mine ie I checked several Walmarts. None of the larger stores or more well established ones had it in stock. It ended up being a smaller more recently built store!

    YEA! I found one at the Walmart in Windcrest TX. Nice little phone. Much more premium feel than the 635.

    Not really sure what I'll do with it, I already have a 2 520's, 2 635's, a 920, a 1020, and a now a 640. I guess Lumia's are like baseball cards, you can collect them all!

    Maybe you are weak...., But smart. I was ready to go with a LG G3 as my main phone. But when I picked up a 640 and it felt natural I decided to give it a shot. Or maybe I am just weak too.....

    They had two boxes at my WalMart. But one of them was empty, the content had been stolen. Is that a good sign too?😉

    I bought the other one, so now they are out.

    yes, when the crooks think they are worth stealing, then you finally have a good product.

    strolled into the Walmart not actually looking for the 640 and just happened to look at the phone racks. there was 1 GoPhone just sitting there. How can you pass that up!?! Went onto the AT&T Device Unlock site. Got my unlock code a day later. couldn't be happier.

    That site says a GoPhone needs to be active for 6 months... how does that work?

    There is usually an option for non ATT customers and they email the code right away.
