So I was very lucky and won a Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone from @MobieChick! This was awesome, as I was debating how I could get my hands on this Flagship phone from Nokia and AT&T. I was nowhere near being able to get the 900 at the reduced $99 rate with a new two year contract. The reason being is I just bought the HTC Titan, a great phone, in November. So either I would have to add another line to get the reduced price, but add another $30 a month to my bill or pay about $400 + off contract.
So the phone arrived at my house yesterday! Got the delivery email from FedEx around 1pm and almost ran out of the office to head home, but waited and worked the ENTIRE day then made it home. So the first impression of picking up the phone was great, a very solid and well build device. The charger was tiny and it does a great job getting juice to the battery. What I had to do next is call AT&T to get the Micro SIM card enabled. This was easy but while talking to the AT&T rep I found out since the 900 switched to the Micro SIM card format I was out of luck to switch back easily to another device that took the AT&T standard SIM card. If I wanted to switch back to my Titan, just for a day I would be required to go to AT&T and get another SIM, enable it and then use it in the Titan. But then to switch back to the 900 it would be the same experience, get another Micro SIM from a store, enable it and use. This is because; as it was explained to me once AT&T disables a SIM it cannot be used again. I asked if I could have a Micro and Standard SIM active at the same time and the rep said that was not possible. This is not a major problem, but I would like to have the flexibility to switch SIM cards between devices.
So with all that I can’t say enough about this Phone! It just feels right, it looks right and it acts right! The True Black screen with the Nokia Blue Theme (a strong blue versus the built-in Microsoft blue) is awesome. The phone just say pick me up and use me. But when you pick it up, you can get info and be back to your life, unless you get caught into the great games with Xbox live and Indy games. This phone is so solid and just the right size, the Titan was great, a little big but really great, but this just fits into my hand and life.
I will say that Nokia hit a home run with this phone and getting it for free via the contest was just icing on the cake! Please take a close look at this phone the next time you are near a AT&T Mobile store, you will be impressed!
