    When it arrives, I plan to take it to the ATT Store, get my plan set up, not sure exactly what I'll choose yet with the NO Contract. .... any suggestions will be welcomed.

    I now have a contract, that expired way back with ATT( after the 2 year contract ended )..... this will goooooooo away for good.

    OH dear.. I failed to ask when I could expect it to arrive.
    The MS online store bundle is a deal compared to others. Just the phone alone at AT&T online and in their stores is $584.99. Online AT&T states that the shipping date is November 19, so hopefully the MS store will be the same.

    I'm going with the $40 plan. Unlimited calls, unlimited messaging (text, picture, video > which includes to Mexico, Canada & 100 countries), 500 call minutes, and 200 MB of data. That will be more than sufficient for me. I may go with the $25/250 minute plan, but I'm not sure that will be enough for me. My average is around 300 call minutes. It's $5 more per 50MB of data with that plan, however most of my data is via WiFi since I live around the big city. WiFi is most everywhere here.

    Hmm, I sure would like to be able to run that in a VM in a Windows 8.1 desktop.
    Are you going to do some developing? I’d bet you’d be good at it.

    AT&T now has the Lumia 1520 for $99.99 with a 2 year contract instead of $199.99.

    I was just barely able to cancel my order to get it for the new price.

    Hi there LPT. Concerned for you here. Assuming this is through AT&T online > Are you sure you went through the total buying process on the AT&T site? Although a good up-front cost savings, I came up with an $85 a month cost with a two-year plan at the $40/Mo service plan. With taxes I would estimate it to be around $95/Mo, although I’ll have to pay a tax on my prepay plan as well.

    Since Shawn brought this to our attention, I investigated my bundle via the MS online store with this one. I picked the $40/Mo service plan with no insurance and no extras as I would be getting with a prepay plan. The only difference is that you get 1GB of data whereas I get 200MB. This is what I get at checkout:

    Attachment 32010

    Bottom line > Although one is spending full amount with the up-front cost of the phone, in the long run with a $40/Mo prepay plan it is a roughly $700 savings over the 2 years. In essence that’s what they are charging to subsidize the phone. Basically, think of it as interest to borrow the money for the device.

    I don’t mean to push the issue. This may or may not be something you’re aware of. It may be what you and others want. Just making sure.

    Just arrived.

    Wow, the Lumia 1520 (6") is just a bit bigger than my old Galaxy S2 (4.5").

    Good for you, Shawn! That was quick.

    Are you disappointed with the size?
