Nokia Lumia 920 pricing spotted at Best Buy

Nokia Lumia 920 Best Buy pricing

Not sure if this is a sign of things to come (we can only hope) but the local Best Buy in Naples, Florida is displaying pricing points for the AT&T Nokia Lumia 920.  It matches up with the rumors we reported a few days ago with the two year contractual/upgrade price running $149.99.  The out of contract price is listed as $599.99 which seems about right for retail.

Our tipster reported that there weren't any demo units of the Lumia 920 out and the sales clerks had not idea on availability.  Hopefully, the November 9th part of the rumors will hold true and we'll start seeing the new Nokia Windows Phones on shelves this weekend.

Sadly, the QR Code on the pricing placard comes back to an unavailable website.

If you've spotted the Lumia 920, the HTC 8X or any of the other new Windows Phones in stores feel free to sound off in the comments or over in the WPCentral Forums.

Thanks, Michael, for the tip and the pic!

Nokia Lumia 920 pricing spotted at Best Buy

102 Comments

Others are reporting on another thread that att is going to be $99 and will be available on the 9th. This is being confirmed by att reps.

Should have gone on sale Sept 9th 2009.  Then I could buy it on 9/9/2009 at 9am for $99.99 while listening to 99 problems (but a phone aint one)

You'll notice the picture is from best buy, not AT&T.  Best Buy was already selling the Nokia Lumia 920 for $149 last week ( I forget exact date).
The only info we have about AT&T are the numerous posts on the forums about how people's local stores are saying it'll be $99.

I was just in an AT&T store and the rep said he didn't know release date but checked in the computer and said that I should come to the store on friday and there was a promotion in the computer for the 9th.

Nice 150 isn't a bad price, also I think the 9th rumors are true because last week I asked the Nokia Facebook page when it was coming out and they mentioned they just started shipping a few hours after that  post. A few days after I called 2 AT&T stores And one mentioned late next week (this week now) and the other store said the 9th

I'm getting mine at the att store. They will be giving the wireless charge pad for free with purchase.

I had pre-order from Best Buy on Oct 21 and I just called best buy rep and she told me I can expect the phone to ship on Nov9 but I feel like the phone shouldn't come out on 9 because today(Nov4) still no update from AT&T...

But why hasn't there been an announcement 4 days from the date of sale? Also, why didn't they do a pre-order?

The greater population doesn't know this phone exists yet.  Once the ads start to surface, they'll get to see it for the first time.  For us folks on the forums, we've been waiting for months.

AT&T probably wants to sell as many 900s as they can before the 920 is finally released.

Correction: ATT wants to sell as many iPhone 5's as possible. Sad but true, this is why they've dragged-ass on this :-/

I know we're a rare breed...but I buy my phones off-contract so subsidized prices to me are meaningless.  I'm not shocked at the $600 price tag, though hopeful that full retail prices will start to trend down, especially with the $299 Nexus 4.  I'll be buying the 8X, so here's to hoping it's at least $50 cheaper than the 920?

Yea I feel the pain there. The Nexus 4 is tempting just for the fact that it is $300 no contract. If I could flash WP8 I would bite :)

Don't think prices near $299 are sustainable in the long run since most companies need to make a profit to stay in business.

On the plus side if stores are starting to put actual price tags out the launch can't be too far behind.

Let's hope this means that the order cancelling e-mails from Best Buy were just signs that they have received the phones and they got less than expected. Therefore, those who didn't received the e-mail should get their 920's in a timely manner.
Here's hoping!

Best Buy always inflates their off contract pricing. I'm hoping this means I can pick one up from AT&T for $500.

I emailed Best Buy about my pre-order on the Lumia 920 and questioned them about delivery date and they said its expected to arrive between today, the 5th, and the 13th.

$149.99? That seems like a good starting point. However, I do hope that some of the new WP8 phones offer competitive pricing somewhere in the $99.99 range. 

I think they will announce availability on the the 7th, after election to buy instore on the 9th. Or the 9th to buy in store on the 11th.

That is some gr8 prediction. It happened as you said. Only difference being that they announced it ON the election day.

I could not confirm $99 price yet in my town, but others are getting a $99 confirmation. I will check more stores and post if I find out anything.

Hey guys I called Bestbuy Mobile today and gave them my pre-order # and they informed me the phones would be availble for pickup on the 11th. Then I called ATT when I got home tonight and inquired about the nokia 920 and he said that the release date for that is scheduled for November the 11th and that they would not be doing any pre-orders as in his words " this phone operating system is not as popular as android or iphone maybe in a year or year and a half but right now their apps market is just not big enough" I asked if there were any perks to buying my phone direct from At&t "not really we will have the same thing our third party's do"  I then asked if the rumors about a free wireless charger were true and was told " one of the nokia phones does come with a free wireless charger in the box " he would not specify a model I then asked so is this going to be a att in store exclusive and he replied " no this free wireless charger will come with the phone and will be across the board" so bestbuy? " all retailers selling our phones should have them with the phones"
 
well thats all the information I needed to know this is my first comment but dont count me out.
Verify what I said just call att (611 on an att phone)  press 0 after the account prompt speak to someone ( not sales) @ ATT
@ bestbuy just call bestbuy mobile and they will tell you what they told me.
 

Thanks for the info. I was hoping for the 9th but 11th isn't that far away anyway. Free wireless charger at the price point the phone is selling for is a steal. I'm not sure if I should do it through Best Buy or ATT, I guess I'll decide on the launch day what to do.

By the way I called ATT myself to maybe try to confirm for myself and no dice. The guy I got on the line said that he could not find any information about the launch date or anything like that and when he looked it up in the system only the 900 came up, which is dissapointing. He also mentioned that they ususally get info a week before a devices launch.

I hope you are right and I will be able to get the phone this week, because the wait is killing me.

If the charger is in the box with my Best Buy pre-order I will be a very happy man. Even if it is not I'm not willing to cancel and hunt all over town for a cyan 920 at an ATT store.

Am I missing something here on the math?  $600 off contract, but only $150 + $325 early termination fee to activate a new line and then cancel it?

$36 activation fee and taxes and probably some hidden fees.  The price would come very close to just buying it off contract.

Just got off the phone with ATT in Dallas, TX and I was told I will be able to pick the phone up Nov. 9th. No price.

To bad Costco may not get them right off. They have better deals and bundles that go with the phone. Though it might cause I got the Samsung focus there in Feb of 2011 for $9.99.

just visited the ATT store in Dallas and confirmed there is a free wireless charger with the Lumia 920.. It was listed in their system.. 
According to the rep, they get all their phone announcements on Tuesdays to prepare for the week.. 
should know tomorrow afternoon on exact dates for lumia 920.. Est date is Nov. 9th.. Even best buy stock in dates show Nov. 9th.. 
 

there must be a lot of us in Dallas on this forum - I've seen a lot of Texas/ Dallas posts! We should have a nokia 920 release party!
 

I hope it's the 9th I have asked several AT&T reps different answer from everyone.  I don't think anyone know when it's coming out.  Worst release in the history of cell phones.. They are killing the small WP population.  I am a huge WP fan biut this s#!t is rediculous iPhone 5 is looking better everday there is no news>

And I say cell phones not smart phones because i mean when they use to make cell phones twice the size of my cordless house phone

This is one really screwed up launch. And I thought Lumia 900 launch was horrible. It feels like the phone will exist only on paper.

I'm a Lumia 900 owner on AT&T since April. Does this mean I can upgrade to the 920 for $149 or only at 18 months?

I went to the at&t store tonight and they told me that they don't think it's being released on the 9th because Nokia reps haven't went to their store and that the Note 2 and the new LG are the only ones being released that day.

This is frustrating me so much, I really hope it's this Friday, but my store said it wasn't going to come on the 9th. :(

Lots of stores have the release date in there computers as November 9th. I don't think the nokia reps were able to get to all the att stores. I'm going with the 9th. I was told information will be released on wednesday.

My at&t friend said , his inventory saying lumia 920 coming at 9th. He is the manager of the store, so I'm hoping he is right about it.

Guys,
Does off-contract (600$) mean unlocked? Or it can still work only on ATT?
600$ might be cheaper than in my country (India) and I would love to pick the cyan version from US.

As far as I'm aware it's still locked to AT&T. Now, I could be wrong, but that's the last I heard.

The only way that would be true is if it came pre-installed with some ATT Live tiles that drained the battery quicker.  Otherwise, the Lumia 920 and the OS installed are exact same no matter what carrier you buy them from.

For some reason in America they think that $99 or $149 for a phone up front on a contract is cheap, I always thought it was daft too since I've always got my phones free.

So, what's the deal with this?  If I buy it off-contract, can I use it in the UK?  LTE or HSDPA+ or both?  Anyone know?
