ordered last night. got an email today saying Walmart would like to verify my info. it turns out that the name of the order must be the same as the name of the primary account holder, or AT&T won't approve the order. i worked with a nice CSR to get my order cleared of Carrier Approval and Order Validation and the estimated ship date is 11/10/2012, which is today. sweet
The problem is AT&T not releasing Jelly Bean, not Samsung. Good luck upgrading your Nokia!
Nice try. WP8 updates are OTA. I've no problem with android but the updates are extremely slow and Samsung is worst of them all. They just keep coming out with new phones and drop support on existing ones. I've been there - I'd a Samsung Captivate with GPS issue and they refused to fix it, blaming it on the "carriers"? Anyhow, done ranting. Please don't misguide people that Samsung is the "best" - they are probably one of the worst manufacturers when it comes to supporting their products.
With the price of the new Lumia 920 coming in at only $49.99 on contract the competition really can't touch it. It's already one of the top phones hardware wise this holiday season and with the price it just seals the deal. This phone is a beauty when you see it in person and it is built like a tank so forget needing to worry about keeping a case on it at all times like you do the iPhone 5.
Here's a great in-depth review for the Lumia 920's hardware:
Were those WP7 phones updated OTA? Are they getting WP8?
WP7 will get an update to simulate WP8. but it will not be upgraded to WP8, the reason being (if i remember correctly) the traditional Windows CE kernel WP7 uses and the new Windows 8 kernel are very different.
someone on a previous thread had mentioned about lumia 920.3 for those trying to get an unlocked one off ebay to use on tmobile. [I could not find that thread to give him proper props]
can anyone confirm whether the att ones work with 3G on tmobile? or with tmobile 4g?
[apparently they might work only in LA so far, but no where else]
that's where 920.3 model of lumia comes in, which is developer unlocked (Microsoft gave a lot of those at Build conference) and can work with any GSM carrier in the US for both 3g, 3.5G and 4G. those however sell for $800+ on ebay.
If I am forced to buy the iPhone 5, at least I know I can sell it for $400-$500 to get the nokia full price off contract for around the same!
it depends if you want to use on tmobile or att. see my post #54 if you are interested in tmobile.

Its a joke right? Do galaxy owners have the official jelly bean update yet? Didn't think so. When was it released by google? July 9th. Good luck!
Besides, if you owned old Samsung android devices, you would know how poor their support is. They completely screwed up GPS implementation in Samsung captivate and refused to fix it. This is not the company that has your back. They will simply move on to the next devices and drop the ball on existing ones.
Exactly why I am not buying another Samsung after my one and only Samsung phone. I usually keep my phone for close to 3-4 years before upgrading, but I'm dumping this POS Samsung Captivate after less than 2 right now since AT&T lets me upgrade early.
If you’re looking to get the Nokia Lumia 920 and have no interest in the wireless charging pad — this deal is for you. Walmart.com is offering the Nokia Lumia 920 for $49 with a new 2-year contract or upgrade.
