Microsoft will discount the Lumia 950 by $150 when you trade in a Lumia 920, 925, or 1020

Microsoft has announced a new promotion which will allow Nokia Lumia 920, 925, and Lumia 1020 owners to trade-in their current device in exchange for a $150 discount on Microsoft's Windows 10 Mobile flagships, the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL.

If you're currently rocking a Nokia Lumia 920, 925, or a Lumia 1020, you're probably a bit disappointed that Microsoft has decided not to update your device to Windows 10 Mobile despite having previously promised to do so. If you find yourself in this situation but you're still determined to remain a Windows Mobile loyalist, then not all hope is lost.

If own one of these three Nokia Lumia devices, then you can head on over to Microsoft's online webstore and click 'Trade-in online'. You'll have to specify which device you're planning to trade in, then answer if you'll also trade in the charger, and then fill the IMEI number of the device. Note that even if you don't trade in the charger, the $150 credit will be maintained. As an alternative, you can head on over to a physical Microsoft Store and trade in your device there.

The $150 trade-in credit is only valid for phones in a working condition. This means that all keys need to function properly, the device should be able to power on, the screen should not be cracked or broken, and the handset should show no signs of liquid damage.

This promotion starts today and will end on June 30, meaning that you have plenty of time to take advantage of it, should you consider it tempting enough. What do you guys think, would you trade in a Lumia 920, 925, or 1020 for $150 in credit towards the unlocked Microsoft Lumia 950 or 950 XL?

Hell no. The process alone isn't worth it.

In all honesty, they should just lower the price by $150 period.

Unlike Android, windows phone doesn't require a big processor to run smooth.

If you would call MTK 6592 CPU big processor. I had it in my RedMi Note and everything runs well. The truth is mobile device hardware are cheap, they are all made of cheap material. Its just hardware manufacturer e.g Samsung and other semiconductor industries rank it base on the complexity of the design and its demand.

Well there we go, no need to bash on the Lumia for a stronger processor than the one you have right?

Well there we go, no need to be defensive, after I reply in a civilized manner to your low blow on Android right?

Low blow on android? Did you not see the previous diminishing comment about the snap dragon 808? Or help me understand here, how my comparison is a low blow to android, when I did not argue to your comment about your redmi note

Both Android and WP are running on ARM CPU and they have the same hardware spec require. The reason you say that WP is smoother than Android is because of your lack of experience handling Android. I have a Neptune Pine at run smooth on 512MB ram, stock Android. So please don't bash Android without sufficient knowledge. I understand a lot more because i use my time and money to acquire it. I don't like to bash WP as well, i think they have their own fan base. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neptune_Pine

Hahahaha you obviously are new here, just saying but my ANDROID 18 avatar isn't just for shows. I've experienced them all, from symbian (when you had diapers) to Sailfish, and yes I only read your first sentence, that alone let me know how little you know me and how much you like to assume about someone and immediately attack when I was not attacking you.

Look at my profile. You always say illogical things and laugh at yourself. In a way, i pity you, you love something that others avoid. Sad...

Feeling pity for me because I have a different opinion than yours and many other people? On what small mind could that even be a reasoning for pity?

Differences are celebrated. But a troll that bad mouth others that like Android are not! Can't you wrap your tiny little mind that there are people that use Android actually like Android as well. During this conversation, I did not mention a single negative thing about WP. I just don't want to use it at this point of time. I am not a fan of both Google and Microsoft just that for mobile Android is more viable for me and I don't like WP fan spreading inaccurate information. questions/34958/what-are-the-minimum-hardware-spec​ifications

1. I only read your first sentence 2. I stopped reading because you basically contradicted yourself, since you were feeling pity for me for having a different mindset from you but now you say that it's actually meant to be celebrated, all because I "badmouthed" android 3. Didn't even bother with your link, g'day.

But you did bother to reply. People like you give WP fan a bad name. Random bashing of Android user will make more people buy WP phone. Think about it. It make feel I have made the right decision to stay away from the losing platform. In fact I was a fan of Windows Mobile in Palm days. Only after WP 7.5 I decided to switch away from it because I don't like Microsoft following Apple close ecosystem.

What does me bothering to reply have to do with anything? I never said "no one cares" or anything like that, you have every right to have your own opinion. Until you make sense I'll only read your first sentence, like I did just now again so try again if you will.

It just mean you care about what I think. Windows phone has never successful since the beginning. Even with Windows Mobile 5, it's an under dog. Palm and Symbian were the top dogs. I just couldn't believe Microsoft could make things worse with WP7. WP8 is better but still a far cry compare to both Android and iOS. WP10 unsurprisingly are deem by their fans as the savior to their burnt out platform. But we now know with absolute certainty that it's going to tank. Many people I know personally has return their WP10 devices.

Once again, try again, and yes I only read to where you said that I care about what you think, since that is hardly true.

37. joey_sfb

Posts: 6794; Member since: Mar 29, 2012

Well. I only matter to me that I have said it and you have read it.

38. Bernoulli

The thing is that I didn't so... Unless you're willing to admit it was pointless to read beyond the first sentence in each case.

39. joey_sfb

Posts: 6794; Member since: Mar 29, 2012

Then why you even bother to reply. Unless you are willing to admit that you are writing random babbling that are speaking to no one in particular. A clueless troll

Final judgement. This is for all that are following this. It's not meant for Bernoulli specifically since he don't have the balls to hear what I have to say. WP is a platform of compromise. In its current state I am not going to throw good money at it. Maybe in the future where it become the better than both iOS or Android as I only support the best for my money. At the current rate and Microsoft policy they have slim to no chance because they just want to copy Google and Apple. Google on data collection and Apple on closing their existing open platform. That's suck for me as a consumer.

Lol I see you had one of those "crap I just replied to him, but I now, 17 minutes later, have a better comeback" moments haha thanks for humoring me I really appreciate your usefulness to society.

Really!? I wonder how I managed to entertain you when you didn't even read my comments? LOL!

Last but not least, doing anything in life is more fulfilling than being in a loser WP fan troll group.

and you seem to have done it again, 8 minutes later you thought of something else but not within the time frame in which you replied to me :D

44. Bernoulli

Posts: 4359; Member since: Sep 01, 2012

easily, by looking to see how you had just said something, but then thought of something more elaborate later on after you had already said something haha! XD

So you are an attention seeking troll. Good! At least I bring a little fun into you boring existence in a barrel WP land. Use iOS or Android, life would be fun and fulfilling again. Microsoft should just give free handset. They are rich and could afford it.

Much needed comical relief indeed, and I don't use my phones as sources for entertainment, that's why I have multiple sex partners and money, I mean just how much entertainment is one showed to get from a 6" screen? I can see if you're a little kid with nothing better to do or if you're broke and your phone is your only source of entertainment. But tell me, what's it like dancing for me and writing back for someone who only reads your first sentence? XD
