It doesn’t look like I will be able to get the phone that I have been salivating over since my hands on back at CES 2012.
I won’t be getting the Nokia Lumia 900.
1. I’m no longer an AT&T customer. If I were, i’d be all over the Lumia 900. I would use one of our four lines to upgrade for sure. I could become an AT&T customer again, but we just moved to Verizon 3-4 months ago. I can’t afford to pay $500 in fees to leave again.
2. Right now, I am not accepting review units from US carriers. This has to do with my current employer and trying to make sure I don’t cross into gray areas while I cover the mobile industry. Even though I have nothing to do with the wireless side of the company and I don’t represent the company, I feel it’s better this way.
3. I will accept review units from OEMs, but, as expected, other great writers on GottaBeMobile are already getting the Lumia 900 from Nokia.
4. The last option is purchasing one for full cost. A couple of years ago, I would have dropped $500+ to do this, but these days… Finances won’t allow me to do this.
I am very disappointed, but I have to deal with it.
3 things I can guarantee:
1. The review of the Nokia Lumia 900 on GottaBeMobile will be awesome. Chuong does a stellar job.
2. At $99, the Lumia 900 will do great and become a top seller.
3. If #2 is wrong, Windows Phone is in big trouble.
I totally know how Verizon customers felt like for the years that the iPhone was an exclusive on AT&T.

I’m not giving up, but it’s not looking pretty.
