    It might help if one could find a Windows phone. AT&T had one phone available online the last time I looked. My local Walt-Mart has no Windows phones at all. Some of the apps I use on my Galaxy 3 phone are not available for windows phone. Hopefully things will change when my contract runs out in October. If not I'll stay with Android.

    New Microsoft Mobile Flagship

    So Any news on the new phone? is there like a thread for the team to hear out their consumers like you did with windows 10?

    I've fell in love with the Microsoft Mobile OS not mentioning the bugs that kept popping up every now and then XD, I'm talking about the user interface and not having the lagging issue like I've faced with Android and iPhones "given that you don't change
    it every year" and the amazing battery life I mean that should be a focus, my Lumia 950 ran 1 day and 11 hours on a single charge with heavy usage including gaming Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, that being said from what I've seen the biggest weakness was proper marketing
    and the APP STORE omg the app store was so bad at one point I tried searching for angery birds to find it on the 4th page I mean come on, the best apps I've seen where probably the ones made by Microsoft.

    so I'm just speaking out loud here but I think the main focus should be the app developers, you get them in and you should have a good start of apps during launch.

    iPhone 7 /7 Plus with the no headphone jack issue "which I don't mind as I don't use headphones"

    Samsung Note 7 exploding in yo face and what not...

    Now would be a good time to rise up and show them what Microsoft can do.

    Also marketing wise maybe hit up on some youtubers send them some stuff, like unbox therapy, should be a unique unboxing of

    course :)

    Please please please get it right, I want my Microsoft phone QQ

    I know I'm no expert I just wanted to speak my mind and hopefully be helpful with my comment coz I really want Microsoft to win this mobile war.

    No new windows phone?

    NO, it is not true and NO you should not be concerned, Microsoft is commited to Windows 10 Mobile.

    It is true that Microsoft will not release a new Phone in 2016. It is expected that microsoft is going to announce/release a high-end Phone around Spring 2017.

    AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint all have Windows Mobile phones. AT&T has 4 phones in their lineup, and you can always buy an unlocked phone as well and just put a sim chip in. Verizon has 3 phones, and while you can still buy unlocked phones, it's a bit harder because you need CDMA compatibility.

    Walmart only sells unlocked and pre-paid phones, they don't sell phones on contract. You can buy A number windows mobile phones on Walmarts website.

    But, yes.. the pickings are slim, even at major carriers stores. Although, how many iphones do they carry? 3? maybe 4? IPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5c, 5s... that's it.

    Last time I looked AT&T only had one phone available online. Wal-Mart does sell phones on contract. AT&T is one of them. my local Walt-Mart had no Windows phones available either on contract, unlocked or pay as you go. I don't even know why I'm replying to you because we will never agree on anything. I've asked you before and I'll ask you again, please put me on your ignore list.

    One doesn't have to agree with facts... facts are facts.

    ATT has 4 Windows phones on their website. A Lumia 640XL, An HTC One (M8) For Windows, a Lumia 830, and a Lumia 635. If you go their website, you can see them. Just make sure the "Free" filter is not on. There's only one Windows phone in the "Free" category.

    Verizon has 3 as well, the Lumia 735, the LG Lancet, and HTC One (M8) for Windows.

    Don't get angry and "disagree" with facts.

    Fact: the last time I checked there was four Windows phones. One was not available yet. Two were not available. This leaves just one phone. I'm on my cell phone and the AT&T site is very slow so I can't check to see if it's changed. Can you prove to me that I'm wrong?

    This article makes me feel better. I was regretting my choice to go with a Lumia 640 as it seemed from most reports that it would be unsupported within a year or two tops. Now I have high hopes for Win10 on my phone, hopefully it fixes the lack of apps.

    As of right this second there are 4 Windows phones on the Att website that I'm looking at, with 2 of them greyed out. I assume that the 640XL and the 830 are available at this very moment.

    I wish that Microsoft would bring out some smaller Windows Phones that fit in my pocket. I have an old Lumia 610 which is a great size for me but is sadly stuck on Windows Phone 7.8 (and also a bit tight on memory).

    I wouldn't mind paying out to get a new phone, but wish they'd make a smaller phone with the same sort of features as my current one (eg. a camera with flash) that I can carry around without deep pockets or a 'man-bag'. *Wink

    About 3 or 4 months ago, I spotted a special at Walmarts - a Lumia 635 for $39.95. This was my first smart phone. Since I was already an AT&T (dumb-phone/pay as you go customer) I took the Lumia 635 and my dumb phone to the AT&T kiosk at my local mall where they made the switch for me - saving and installing all my contact info. What was most satisfying and the reason for purchasing the Lumia 635 was the monthly cost of about $10/month - exactly the same as for my dumb phone. This was ideal for me. An inexpensive intro to a smart phone.

    I just check the AT&T site. They have four Windows Phones and only one is available. The Lumia 640 XL is available. The Lumia 830, the Lumia 635 and the HTC One (M8) is out of stock. Hopefully AT&T will have more to select from by the time I'm ready to upgrade. I know I could change carriers but for now I prefer to stay with AT&T.

    If you don't mind me asking, What's your thoughts on the Lumia 640?

    I don't have the XL mind you. Just the 640 with Cricket. I have been very happy with it so far. It isn't the most powerful phone there is but for my purposes it does just fine. I like not having a contract as well.

    Thanks! I was on a live chat with AT&T. I can buy the 640 XL without a contract and have my Galaxy III deactivated if I want. They couldn't answer my question of when different Windows phones would be available. They said to keep checking their website.
