Amazon offers AT&T Nokia Lumia 920 for a penny, ditches colors

In a case of good news/bad news, we’ll start with how Amazon Wireless today is offering the AT&T Nokia Lumia 920 in matte black for just $0.01.  That penny deal is only as good as the contract you sign though, so you’ll need to enlist for 2 years as a new customer to get that offer—but that’s still a darn fine one...

If you're just upgrading/renewing, you can grab the deal for $20. Not as good as a penny offer but not too shabby either.

Now the bad news: due to “overwhelming demand”, it looks like you won’t be able to get this phone shipped to you for at least one to two weeks—maybe even more. Even worse, as we noted you only get the matte black color option. In fact as far as we can tell, Amazon Wireless have scrubbed the four other colors (white, yellow, red and cyan) from their site, as you can no longer order those. From what we’ve been told, stock for those colors is extremely low so matte black it is.

But hey, if you won’t mind waiting a few weeks and you’re into the absence of color, then head over to Amazon Wireless to claim yours (and before they stop offering that one too).

With pigments, black is the combination of all colors. It's with light that black is the absence of color. So Amazon is offering the bargain of all colors combined, as opposed to the silly single colors. :) right smart lot, them.

I signed with 99.99...

220SeaChaser says:

I prefer black anyways.

schlubadub says:

Once you've had black, you'll never go back?

lubbalots says:

Still waiting for my red Lumia 920 ordered 11/15 from WalMart.

You should cancel that order and order it again to get the 100 $ gift card

Kormiko says:

Of course, if one cancels... one risks getting the phone even later... but for $100... it might be worth it.

My wife and I tried to do this, and Amazon was going to stick us with the 3GB data plan and an unlimited family text plan.  We went to the AT&T store where we got to keep our 300MB plan, and 200 text plan (which is good enough for us, we spend a lot of time in Wifi enabled areas.)  So if you already have a 3GB (or higher) plan, and family text plan, this may be a good idea, for scroogier people (like me) Buyer beware.  (Also I got a red and she got a white.)

aubreyq says:

Thank you. I'm wary of buying online because of what you mentioned. I don't want an online purchase mess up my 200MB plan; two AT&T stores already told me I can keep it. I'll wait a month or more, since I want yellow.

Monica E says:

Yep, I did this too. The amazon wireless service selections would have increased my monthly bill by $30.  I went to the AT&T store and kept my 200 text plan and upped my dataplan to 300MB (for $5 more a month).  I was very glad I did it that way as the store also still had a few of the colors left that were adverstised as sold out online.

tsrblke says:

Yeah, the wife and I ended up just grabbing them from AT&T, we're told we get to keep our 200 message plan and our 300mb data plans, we'll see what goes wrong (something always go wrong.)
If we hadn't we'd be looking at an extra $20/month per phone (meaning we'd bowl through the $80 savings in 5 months.)  Even if they let us switch back to the 300mb data plan (Since that's not actually grandfathered in) it's not worth it to lose the text messaging plan we have.
Plus I get red and she gets White so it's all good.  And we get wireless charging plates.

aubreyq says:

Nicely done!

aubreyq says:

What phone did you get, Monica?

Monica E says:

I ended up with a red Lumia 920.  I love it.  Upgraded from a Samsung focus which I also loved.  The apps are slightly different on th WP8 so I am adapting.

Cellus13 says:

Who cares about colors, people should be happy they can get one. Take what you can get

Kormiko says:

Okay....   :|

S_C_B says:

NO!  I'll continue to have my first world problems.

NO! I'll continue to have my first world problems.

Unlocked? (I kid I kid)

ejlee072006 says:

Yellow it is for me.. But not this lumia yet...NEXT please!!

aubreyq says:

At this point you might as well wait for the next one, lol

ealexand#CB says:

Tempting, but I think I may pay extra $50 for matte cyan through att ($50 off from bank of America add it up)

Dodge99X says:

all this weekend it's $50 from att and if they dont have it in stock theyll order it online for you at the same price! (be sure to ask for the free wireless charging plate :D )

myjota says:

In my country 920 still not avalaible

Rishicash says:

Maybe it's time to move then.

schlubadub says:

Order online :P

ravi.tandon says:

99 for my yellow still beats all deals till date......

rubenbest says:

Just ordered my cyan one today ^.^

tonywlee says:

How much if you're already under contract??

Kormiko says:

Contact your service provider....

Ordered my black Lumia 920 today!  Upgraded from my Samsung Focus which I have been very happy with.  Can't wait for WP8!

daylater says:

Best, phone, ever!

simpkijd says:

I'm kinda (almost) feeling like a rube for paying $449 off contract......  Still a great phone but signing up for only $.01 is a pretty cool...  

Hate the black. It doesn't look nice. I want a yellow one! (even though I have a 8X)

Faise says:

Got my black one on monday, it's leagues better than the yellow (and a few less leagues than the white), mostly for being matte. The glossy ones just feel cheap and slippery in comparison.

NXH says:

I got my white Lumia 920 last Saturday from stir and I'm loving it. I can't put it down and being glossy makes very easy to slip into my pocket. But what happened to At&t black Friday deal? I thought they would sell it for $49 and I could ask for $50 credit ???!!! Does anyone know?

cae758 says:

I 611'ed AT&T about the $50 discount, but was denied because I ordered over the phone and the black Friday deal was in store only. I was told to try next week for Cyber Monday. We'll see...
My cyan L920 arrived Tuesday. :)

cowboy620 says:

I ordered my wife a yellow 920 last week hasn't arrived yet.
I talked to the store where I ordered it they say it's still pending shipping. Its been a week now, since it was ordered. I bought a red 920 the same day for me.

Murgatroyd7 says:

Sadly, I'm becoming less and less interested in this phone.  Finally tried it out for myself tonight and it's a great phone, but I just don't know if it's the right for me.  I already thought it was bad enough that there isn't a Home button (honestly one of my biggest issues), but I didn't even realize until tonight that the power button is in a really awkward spot and the volume rocker is opposite of where I would expect it to be.  I'm sure I would eventually get used to it, but using it would still be uncomfortable.  And the lack of microSD support is still an issue.  But it's not like I can upgrade anytime soon anyway; the 920 won't even be around by then.  My wife is ready to upgrade, though, and she's probably going to get one and I'll be sure to steal it every now and then.

KDeering says:

The home button is right in the center? Am I missing something??

Hi all,
I have a question,  I want to buy an LUMIA 920 at USA, but I living on Brazil, if I buy the phone without contract, I can use it here on Brazil, or I will need to wait the 6 months of exclusivity of AT&T? If someone could answer me, I will be happy,  Thanks . 

hary536 says:

You can use in Brazil, if you can unlock the phone somehow. 

Thanks for the answer! There is any place at USA that my friend can unlock the fone, or I need to wait something on Internet or the time of AT&T ? Many thanks!

hamitime says:

WOW - I bought the 920 last week for $50 from amazon. I just called amazon wireless and asked if I could get a credit because the phone was now $20. She said, it actually shows up for a penny for the upgrade, let me check if we can do that. 5 minutes later, I received a credit of $49.98 making my 920 a shiny penny.

hary536 says:

Looks like Frys is offering Lumia 920 for 79.99 - $50 gift card = $29.99 effectively and they are showing all colors except grey in their ad. http://www.frys.com/ads/page33#AdNavi
