bkbajaj, 01 Dec 2015Too expensive can't afford.It's way more powerful, larger, and cheaper than an iphone 6s plus. The 950 is even cheaper and still more powerful...

Anonymous, 07 Oct 2015GSMARENA seriously needs to update their article. These pho... moreThis is the major problem with bloggers. One source can spread FUD and all the others won't bother to fact check. The L950 XL is clearly on Microsoft's US website as unlocked(and it uses T-Mobiles bands). The L950 is on At&t's site but that don't mean it's exclusive because they(At&t) would've said it in their press release. T-Mobile's own CEO got duped by this same source and stuck his foot up his mouth, when he should've known better.

GSMARENA seriously needs to update their article. These phones are not exclusive to AT&T. CNET already updated theirs.

"Correction, 1:54 p.m. PT:The deal between AT&T and Microsoft for the Lumia 950 is not an exclusive one."

This move will kill Windows Phones. They were stupid the first time they did and now they are suicidal.

  • jaja binks

aaarrgghhh.. y y y? ATT will never market windows phone like it should
question: can i buy directly from microsoft and use on another network? say T-mobile. Btw. I am an ATT customer but plan on switching the minute the phone is available.

Lol...exclusive to one Carrier? They must be kidding. Seriously can Microsoft afford to go with such a revenue killing model of selling phones in 2015/2016. I thought they were trying to expand the reach of Windows phones. I don't get the thinking of some of these Companies.

I was waiting anxiously for the 950xl to switch from android, but to go with ATT , no but no thanks.

Good luck Microsoft, someone deserve to get fired and loss money.

It's a mistake!!!

It is bad idea, simply because career exclusive devices don't go much far in USA
They should have done what lg did with g2 to gain momentum in USA, after nexus 4 the general public started taking lg seriously, lg did introduce lot of folks to Android with their lg optimus one and its variants that were available on every carrier, however the following devices like the 2x & 3d destroyed their reputation in USA .
Microsoft has also burned the folks and firms by their wp7 fiasco,
So now when they have created buzz, why not make it easily available across the carries
Microsoft does not have the kidney selling fans like apple.

Just seems stupid to me that when they are already struggling for sales, They go an restrict these phones to one carrier. I say open it up, give them to eveyone. make them as cheap as possible and customers will come in, They will never take some custoemrs from apple, samsung and the rest of android but if the deal is good enough some people will.
After having Nokia for 10 years myself, I've just moved to an Xperia Z5, I'm struggling with it and may end up returning it in the 14 day cooling off period. once you use windows phone you realize how simple and easy to use it actually is. I mean, before, Cortana read my text messages for me, no setup needed, it just did it, and interrupted any type of audio from my car to do so. I didn't have to be playing audio from my phone. can my Z5 do this? probably, but does it do it nativity? no, i have to mess around installing 3rd party apps with adverts just for this. why isn't it built into google now? Windows phone wont die, but its not going to thrive when these phones are exclusive.

yes its a very good phone, as compare to previous models of Microsoft this device is slim as well....

And when they complain about low sales in the US, I'll be sure to remind everyone of their idiotic decisions.

  • AnonD-123996

Hey i heard 950XL will have a removable battery and SD card. Is that true? If thats true i am going to buy the blue 950XL :)

[deleted post]they quoted a source that even updated the article to state that it was not an exclusive agreement to carry the phones but just At&t stating they would sale the phones.
