A used nokia lumia 920 for about $140, worth it?

If it's in good condition then definitely. The 920 is still a great phone despite its age.

Nope. Not worth it at all. 

Ask yourself, if it was too good, why did the original user decided to sell it?

When my old 920 broke I was looking for a phone and I found a refurbished Lumia on eBay for $120.  It's worked well for me so far.

 

Got it from these guys: http://www.ebay.com/usr/deal.fisher?_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2754

 

This seems to be the cheapest listing, which is about the same price you're getting:

What?  So anything good is never for sale?  That makes no sense.

Again. Nobody likes to sell something really "good".

I have (for example) 105 Rolls Royces listed for sale within 100 miles of my house.  That's just an example, I'm sure it would be similar with any other "good" car (or other item).

 

Also, thinking about something good you were looking for, there are tons of flash drives (Patriot, SanDisk, etc.) for sale on eBay.  Did you buy a bad flash drive?

huh? this is completely illogical. How about people who got into debt or compulsive spenders that sell their stuff just to get something new?

Plenty of instances in which something "good" is sold. No sense to sell something when its value of retention exceeds its perceived value of sale.

This phone would still get the latest updates from Microsoft despite it's 2 years old, right? Unlike other manufactures when they ditch the updates on android devices down the road...

Yes, Microsoft support upto 18 months or lately I also heard about 36 months security update support. Though at least 18 months support is better than Android.

Perhaps someones upgraded or upgrading to a Lumia Icon/930 for example and no longer wants the 920 - doesn't mean it's no good if they're selling it -.-

You can get the developer preview simply by signing up. There are instructions all over the net and 8.1 dramatically improves the phone.

 

post haste means with great speed >.< Quickly for the normal people amongst us :p

From personal experience, I'd be looking at seeing if you can find a 925 for that price.  It's a better phone IMO.

I tried, but no attractive prices. Besides, read that build quality on the 920 is superior to the 925. This is one article: http://allaboutwindowsphone.com/features/item/17784_The_925_vs_920_debate_rages-co.php

Part of the reason I intend on shelling out about $200 for a Windows Phone 8 is for the developer preview of Windows Phone 8.1, which has a bunch of cool new features like "Cortana", or Microsoft's Siri. It's actually pretty neat, and it's relatively realistic too.

 

And it has open app development! Kind of. You have to open your phone to it one time from your computer, but after that, you can download and install third party applications as you please; not that there are many out there yet!
