Eh. This should at least start out for free or, at best, $49. But I would hold off for newer Windows Phone models rather than pick this up.

Well, at least on AT&T the voicemail will work, unlike on sprint (who doesn't seem to know how to make it work on its WP8s)

Why does Samsung even bother? Nobody intelligent going to buy a Samsung WP8 device when Nokia's Lumia models are like a million times better in every way...

Microsoft should revoke Sammy's license to sell WP devices, and also limit their ability to manufacture and sell Windows based PC's. Stick it to em'.

I can understand someone liking Nokia's phones better but I think that's a bit uncalled for, Samsungs certainly aren't horrible at all, both lumias and Galaxy's are made of plastic, and I prefer it that way.

Man O man, you just find Sammy all over the place... That's the way to do business Samsung, don't limit yourself to "ÖNE" OS.

But I wonder if we'll see "Regional Locks" on Samsung Window Phones, like their doing to the Android ones?
