The highly anticipated arrival of the Nokia Lumia 925 on AT&T is here. Starting today you can pick one up at store for $99 with a new two-year contract. Last month pre-orders started, but more on that later. The Lumia 925 was originally a T-Mobile exclusive, and unfortunately they still have an exclusive on the white model.
The 925 sheds the familiar polycarbonate body from the Lumia 800-1020 and adds a touch of aluminum. It’s thinner, lighter, and just plain gorgeous. The guts are similar to the Lumia 920, save for a slightly upgraded camera. It’s an awesome phone.
Now, about that pre-ordering…
If you listen to our podcast you might know that I really like the Lumia 925, but I’m not on Tmo. When it was announced for AT&T I got excited. Pre-orders began on August 28th, which is when I got online and ordered mine. At that time I was told it would ship on September 11th. On the 11th I checked my order and found out the phone is on backorder, and it won’t ship for “5-7 days.”
AT&T, what is the point of offering a pre-order if I won’t get the phone until after it’s available in stores? Has anyone else had this horrible problem? I just want my phone!
