AT&T and Microsoft to hand out freebies with orders for the Nokia Lumia 1520
On Friday, we told you that AT&T had started accepting pre-orders for the Nokia Lumia 1520. The phablet will actually be released on November 22nd and AT&T is asking $199.99 with a signed two-year contract for the phablet. Besides the handset, the first Windows Phone model to carry the GDR3 update, the carrier is tossing in some freebies to buyers.

Those buying the the Nokia Lumia 1520 from AT&T will receive a voucher for $20 that can be used to buy paid apps from the Windows Phone Store. Instructions on how to redeem the voucher will be included with the phone when purchased. Those who purchase the Lumia 1520 from AT&T will also get to download Halo: Spartan Assault for free from the Windows Phone Store. AT&T is also giving away 50GB of cloud based storage from AT&T Locker.

If you are planning on buying the phablet from the Microsoft Store, you also will be eligible for some freebies such as a $50 Microsoft Store app card, a free $39.99 flip cover, a $20 app card given out by Nokia, and a free download of Halo: Spartan Assault.

Will your decision on where to buy the Nokia Lumia 1520 have anything to do with the freebies that AT&T and the Microsoft Store are giving away?

I will not buy from AT&T purely because they are stripping an amazing phone for their own greed: 1. 16GB only so you use and rely on their storage locker 2. Qi removed so they keep their partners happy. I know some people don't care about the above things I mentioned because the off contract price is still fantastic for what you are getting. If I was to choose then I would buy from the Microsoft store because you get more freebies :) I am waiting for the international version that I believe is coming out between Nov 25 and the Dec 4.

They are releasing a 32GB option soon. I believe one of the main reasons they decided to release the 16GB option, in addition to what you mentioned, is that the cost of the device would've been higher at the $250 or $300 range. Windows Phone is not popular enough right now to compete against the likes of a the Note 3 or other $300 devices.

I like that Nokia made International version 1520 is fully features packed.

I never did wireless charging so I cannot talk if its a big problem or people just making it a big problem because its allowed somewhere and not somewhere else......the 16gb argument would be an argument if the phone did not accept SD card but since it do this is a weak argument, I would gladly take this phone for every other feature for 200 then pay 250 to 300 just for 16 gigs more when I can just buy a 64 gig card

The release date is 11/22? I was in my AT&T store yesterday and they already had the 1520 on display. Full working model and everything.

I got go play with on in the MS store. I'm not a phablet guy so I was expecting it to feel awkward but it didn't. It's light and very usable. If was planning on getting a Surface 2 in the next month I'd probably grab one.

sounds like good news I was hoping it be a smooth transition from my note to the 1520

25. papss unregistered

Which note do you own?

why dont they make one with cyan color?

Exactly. They need the Nokia signature color. It's no wonder Nokia isn't doing well, with all of the launch mistakes they make.

14. papss unregistered

Yeah the cyan color is the reason. If you had said carrier exclusive sure. I'd argue that red and yellow are signature colors too.

23. Napalm_3nema

Posts: 2236; Member since: Jun 14, 2013

Cyan color is a reason,albeit a minor one. Carrier exclusives and allowing carriers to remove features are big ones. There are a few more, but all of them add up to their loss of autonomy.

26. papss unregistered

It has an sd card so the lower amount isn't a big deal. Wireless charging is in almost no phones so I would disagree that either are reason enough

Oh, don't mistake me, I'm still getting one, but this is just crap that ATT is allowed to do this. I went to my local and played with it a little while ago. It was sweet.

that is the color I wanted the most, but I settle for red, I almost took yellow, but Microsoft website wasnt selling the yellow cause of limited qualities and they had a better deal then AT&T

22. LiyanaBG

cyan color is the best color on Nokia Phones.

24. papss unregistered

I thought that until owning that color. I've had red, yellow and cyan and I prefer red.

I recently picked up a Lumia 928 a few weeks ago because it's the best wp8 i can get on Big Red right now. I must say that Nokia's build and hardware are fantastic. Wp8 is just so far behind the functionality of Android I just can't use it for my primary. It's really a shame because I feel a combo of the 1520 with the 41mp camera and KitKat running the show, would be a dominant device in the marketplace. I love Nokia just not Wp8, although I'm trying and will probably get the 929 since BigRed won't be getting this.

15. papss unregistered

While not as technical it is getting there and I'd argue that it feels better. I love my note 3 for obvious reasons but continue to go back to my 1020
