AT&T offers special deal on Windows Phone 8 models
AT&T has a special offer for Windows Phone 8 buyers that started on Friday and runs through February 21st. The deal is simple. Buy one Windows Phone 8 handset and buy a second unit of the same exact phone for $100 off. For example, buy a Nokia Lumia 920 and take $100 off the price of a second Lumia 920. Or, buy an HTC Windows Phone 8X handset and take $100 off the price of a second one.
 
Buy the HTC Windows Phone 8X from AT&T and get a second one for $100 less

Buy the HTC Windows Phone 8X from AT&T and get a second one for $100 less

The lawyers got together, at least the ones not on retainer by Apple and Samsung, and put together a list of conditions. You must sign a two-year contract for both phones to take advantage of the deal. The $100 bundle discount is applied toward the lower priced model and if the price of the second unit is less than $100, it is free (Hurray!)

The deal is available whether you are activating a new AT&T line or upgrading a current account. Despite the special pricing, the 14 day return policy remains in effect. And you don't have to decide to buy the discounted phone right away. If you buy a qualifying Nokia or HTC model and decide anytime up to February 21st to add a second phone, you will get the $100 discount.

You need a pair of Windows Phone 8 handsets? You could save $100 if you make the purchase from AT&T. And speaking of free, Nokia and AT&T have extended their offer for the free Qi-based wireless charging plate for buyers of the Nokia Lumia 920. The offer was set to expire on January 10th but now has been extended to February 21st.

You're getting 2 $450 phones for $100 out of pocket on a carrier you were going to use anyway (locked to the network, no other GSM carrier has LTE, designed for that network...) and not paying any extra for the privilege.. Why does it matter?

A two year contract is a burden and an unwanted obligation. I can never miss a payment, and I must keep paying after I no longer wish to use the phone. Why would I want to keep a phone for 2 years? That is just annoying.

Eh you're wrong, without a contract he could use the phone with t-mobile and their unlimited nationwide 4G no throttled for 70 $ or maybe he wants to get a value plan where you get things at half the price, like 2 gigs of high speed and unlimited 2g for 10 $ or unlimited texting 5 $ 500 minutes with unlimited mobile to mobile 35 $ I mean he could be thinking outside the box which not many people do, and the LTE advance t-mobile is about to roll out is actually supported by the lumia and it's penta LTE bands nokia put in place (17/2100 mhz) and in any case the bands also support t-mobile's hspa+ 42 mbps in both refarmed areas and non refarmed areas, so if someone is dumb enough to give at$t 100 dollars a month for only 2 gigs of Web when they can save 4X the amount with t-mobile for the same thing, for instance, at&t charges 20 $ for unlimited texting, that's 4x as much with t-mobile, 2 gigs of Web for 25 $ and if you go over that you're screwed, that's 1.5 times more than t-mobile, so someone with common sense wouldn't sign a two year contract, at least not with at$t

No! Stop being a turd. Xperia phones are so-so. Had one on at&t and it fried within a month. Incase you didn't know, Sony has a problem with devices overheating. A friend of mine works at a local Sony plant told me of some of their issues. Not sure what he means when he says they don't clean their boards?? But I don't argue. No wonder why I went through numerous playstations and the Xperia crapped the bed!
