Rumor: AT&T to start selling Nokia Lumia 925 in September

The Nokia Lumia 925 started to be sold in the US as a T-Mobile exclusive in July, but apparently that exclusivity deal won't last for very long. A new report from WPCentral claims, via unnamed sources, that the Windows Phone 8 smartphone with the thin and light aluminum case will soon be sold on AT&T's network.

The report claims that the phone will be priced at $99 with a new two year contract when AT&T starts selling it in mid-September. The Nokia Lumia 920, which AT&T launched in November 2012, will continue to be sold by the carrier but this week its price has been cut from $99 to $49, again with a contract.

T-Mobile is currently selling the Lumia 925 for $0 down and $22 a month for 24 months, (or for the full retail price of $480 with no contract). That deal is only supposed to be for a "limited time" but so far T-Mobile has not indicated when that special pricing event will end.

The smartphone, which we reviewed in July, contains a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and a 4.5 inch HD AMOLED display with a resolution of 1280x768. WPCentral.com reports that AT&T, like T-Mobile currently does, will sell the 16 GB version of the smartphone.

Will AT&T load it up with non-deletable "crapware," as they did with the low-end LG A340?? That illustrates the height of arrogance.

welll duh just like every other carrier

I feel like you have asked this before. Microsoft takes an approach very close to Apple with Windows Phone. Carriers and OEMs cannot install apps onto the phone that cannot be uninstalled. Furthermore, the installed apps cannot default to being within the top two (or is it four?) rows of live tiles (naturally, users can rearrange them if they really want them on top).

AT&T installs something on the order of six apps onto the Lumia 1020. AT&T Locker (new AT&T cloud that is almost certainly a trojan horse waiting to flip from free to paid subscription), AT&T Navigator (GPS app, for a monthly fee), AT&T Code Scanner (QR/barcode scanner using camera), AT&T FamilyMap (app to let you find members of your phone plan, for a monthly fee), AT&T Mobile TV (for a monthly fee), myAT&T (lets you check your bill, minutes, etc), and YPmobile (Yellow Pages mobile). I may be missing one, or possibly two, but with the exception of myAT&T, I have uninstalled all of the others, which took a maximum of 5 minutes with no tricks involved (Press and hold on the app within the app list, and then select Uninstall... done).

For AT&T Locker, they give you an impressive 50 GB of data for free, but all US carriers are scum, so I expect that they hope you become dependent and eventually they will start charging for it. AT&T Navigator actually offers some nice features, but it's not free and I have no interest in adding to my monthly bill to AT&T when Nokia's Here apps offers an excellent turn-by-turn navigation suite completely free. AT&T Code Scanner is probably their nicest app and it's completely free, but it's unnecessary given that the built-in camera features barcode/QR code reading. AT&T FamilyMap is for people with kids that they want to track, and it does not apply to me; you can also use Microsoft's free "Find my Phone" online to get--I expect--roughly the same detail for free (I have used that to find a lost phone that was on vibrate in the _middle_ of a clothing basket by having it to actually force the ringer, which was nice). I will probably dump myAT&T once AT&T enables Data Sense--if they ever do--but it's nice to be able to keep track of everyone's data usage across the entire phone plan (I have a family plan with four phones total, so it's nice to be able to keep an eye on minutes and individual data caps). As for YPmobile, I just have no need for it and I will install it if I ever feel like it's worth it.

Why? It's just a little thinner 920 with less storage and no wireless charging. And the 920 is already just $99. This thing should be free and replace the 820 in their lineup if they get it.

They are reporting that it will be the black version with a possibility of 32 GB. Basically the one that I wanted from TMO. Thanks TMO.
