DEAL ALERT: Can you spare a penny for AT&T Nokia Lumia 920?

Can you spare a penny for Nokia Lumia 920?

Is that penny you found between the couch cushions burning a hole in your pocket? If so, perhaps you'd like to spend it on a new Nokia Lumia 920. CarToys.com is running an online-only deal on Nokia's flagship Windows Phone 8 handset for just one cent and free two-day shipping. The offer is good for both new AT&T subscribers, as well as those current customers who are eligible for upgrades. (And yes it's carrier locked).

It looks like the only available color is Black, so hopefully you're not too picky. Check out the source link to order.

DEAL ALERT: Can you spare a penny for AT&T Nokia Lumia 920?

I paid $99 for pre order. But I gyo charging plate. $50 discount for black Friday sale and $50 for the in convince that att caused me during the pre order

Oh no, the penny was discontinued! Do you think we'll be forced to spend a nickel instead? Those carriers are going to scam us for 4 additional cents.

Of course they're legit.  But to save you some worry, just send me your info and money, and I'll order it for you. Feel better?

Omg are u freaking serious my upgrade is in November well hopefully something better will be out by then

these are the ones i want:
 
GMail
Google Voice - Google Now actually
Youtube
Instagram
Pandora 
Spotify 
Google Maps
GTalk
More browser options
 
I had used android for few years then i jumped to WP bandwagon.. HTC Titan.. i realy really loved it.. but then i am too much into google eco system and all those apps were just not available in WP... also .. many apps.. as i listed abve.. and casal games which android and apple have.. like Subway Surfers..after that i sold it off after getting to know that 7.8 is nothing but cosmetic changes and more updates are not expected..
 
I really loved WP.. having used all the 3 major OS'es i still feel WP is the most beautoful of them all...all the transition effects and black background is just killer....but the App scenario is just killing their market.. i hipe that improves in futire iteration and we get features like Auto Rotate lock and other small fearues soom
 

My suggestions (as a WP user who has similar issues off-and-on):
GMail - Built-in Outlook. It's good, and works with labels and actual deleting
Google Voice - Google Now actually(?) MetroTalk is decent, push works pretty well
Youtube - never had significant troubles with this in 2+ years, but try MetroTube
Instagram - ...I'll never understand instagram, personally, but I can see that it's a problem for some
Pandora - MetroRadio works quite well
Spotify - Available on WP7(?), in beta on WP8
Google Maps - Nokia or Bing maps work fine for me
GTalk - ? Google voice? Can't do VOIP still, which sucks.
More browser options - Agreed, but IE10 is solid
I feel you on a lot of these issues, but I like the OS enough that they aren't deal-breaking. What did you switch to for now?
 
Also, my OG Focus is running a custom 7.8 rom with lockable screen rotation and full MP3 ringtones from your zune library... hehe

If your not bound by a contract, then sign up for StraightTalk for $45 a month.  Or possibly even see if you can live with TMobile $30 with unlimited data/text but only 100 minutes.  I roll my eyes at all these "deals" that tie people into 2 year contracts at almost $100 a month per line.  Do the math people.

Will the average consumer ever know about this promotion? NO!. Will the average consumer ever know all that a Lumia 920 is capable of?NO!. WP8 and Nokia need to do more advertising. They need to be more agressive in order to get more customers. There are people out there that don't even know this phone exists.

True, but at the same time, at least with the features, the average customer, when told what they just bought is q lot more powerful than the already beefyness of the purchase, they get that "Wow! My phone really IS awesome!" The people become the promoters, and that isn't had either.

O yeah... Amazing... But we all know that something is up in the air when prices go down like this...
THE NEXT LUMIA AND THE SURFACE PHONE

Usually, online resellers have such offerings because they are willing to let go of a larger chunk of their commissions, as opposed to traditional stores. Walmart had an (now) infamous promotion selling the phone for $50, with a $100 Gift Card, of course, with a 2 month wait. 
Kind of makes you think why AT&T isn't discounting these directly. Most posts are correct - the end game is to lock you down in paying $$$ every month for 2 years.
