Nokia Lumia 928 on sale for 99 cents from Amazon

0. phoneArena 30 Jun 2013, 12:22 posted on

The Nokia Lumia 928 is a Verizon exclusive that offers users the ability to take great pictures even with less than optimal lighting available; this has become something of a trademark for the platform. Priced at $49.99 from Verizon with a signed two-year pact, it sounds like a great deal for Windows Phone fans, especially since the handset was launched with a price of $99.99 on contract...

All of Verizon's 4G LTE phones are GSM compatible as, they are Global devices and support GSM abroad. The trick would be that, even though you may be able to get it unlocked for use overseas, domestically (that's here stateside for those who do not know the definition), it may not work on U.S. GSM networks. Unless, of course, there were some sort of hack (which seems unlikely given the lack of development for Windows Mobile) to enable "unlocked" U.S. use.

Too bad I can't get Android on that baby!!

I've been positive towards WP always and hated android before. But then Nokia delayed the launch of 620 for which I had saved my money so I thought I'd buy an Android phone for short time. And believe me I fell in love with the OS.

All the hate towards android comes from the Gingerbread era. People who tried GB phones come out to a conclusion that android is laggy and sucks. But now with ICS and JB it's nowhere in there.

Even at 99 cents you still pay 3 times the price of the phone after 2 years... And I'm also not talking about having to keep after few months an outdated phone when new models will come out...

I will give credit to Nokia, the Lumia 928 is not a bad device. At the rate technology is advancing, it will be "outdated," yes, but from an average Joe stand point, if it can last for two years, who cares?

True but, at least you'll have service and there won't be a need for you to bitch all the time about abysmal data or voice connections.

Yes. But it's a greater value considering that you buy a phone for it's original price and then pay for the plan(unlimited text, call or/and surf). Carriers aren't expecting you to think that it's a better bargain because you have the phone cheaper than buying it from a retail store at its price but instead they are just trying to excite people to come and try what they offer(their plans) with the the latest smartphone. After all in the monthly fees you're not paying for the phone in the monthly bill, you're paying for the services (unlimited things) that they offer.

Very true! Wirefly is a close second, but Amazon is King.

Still not worth it. They need to give me at least $200 before I even consider it.

This probably isn't a good thing for Nokia. Who knows.

The only reason Nokia did this is because the Galaxy s3 is also listed at $0.99.
