Nokia Lumia 900  (Source: Nokia)
AT&T is having a very generous deal on the unreleased Lumia 900

We don't know how long this is going to last, but AT&T is currently offering the Nokia Lumia 900 for free with a two-year contract. An eagle-eyed Neowin forum member first spotted the deal, as AT&T is currently offering $100 in instant savings on select smartphones.
 
The Lumia 900 is priced at $99 with a qualifying two-year contract, so the $100 instant rebate makes it free. According to AT&T, if you pre-order now, your phone will ship on April 5.
 
Jeff Bradley, chief of AT&T's hardware devices division, stated that the Lumia 900 would make a big splash on AT&T’s wireless network at launch. "At all levels, this is a notch above anything we've ever done," sad Bradley in a CNET interview this week. "Before you walk in to the store, you know this is our hero phone.  We're going big.  We're really bullish."

 
We're not sure if this $100 instant rebate on the unreleased Lumia 900 is a glitch or just AT&T being extremely generous with its flagship Windows Phone device. However, if you're at all interested in Nokia's latest and greatest now is the time to pre-order.

Yeah I just tried to buy it. Turns out ATT only offers the $100 discount to new customers... even if you're an existing customer and not in contract like me. So for me to get this deal, I literally have to cancel my ATT account and make a new one. Stupid.

You are now chatting with Janell, an AT&T sales representative.
Stephen: hi Jannell
Stephen: Janell
Janell: Welcome to AT&T online Sales support. How may I assist you with placing your order today?
Stephen: im trying to add a nokia 900 to my cart and keep my existing plan but it keeps telling me i need to add a plan
Janell: I would be happy to provide you some information on upgrading. Are you currently logged into your account?
Stephen: yes
Janell: Were you able to click on the upgrade link?
Stephen: ok I just got it in my cart
Stephen: but it doesnt include the 100$ discount
Stephen: http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/deals/100savings....
Stephen: from there
Janell: You would not be able to receive this 100.00 promotion when upgrading.
Stephen: so should I cancel my plan and make a new plan?
Janell: You would be able to do so but, if you are still in contract you would pay early termination fees.
Stephen: im not in contract
Janell: Then you are able to go through the process of placing an order like a new customer without logging into your account. Once you place your order you can contact customer care to cancel your current account.
Stephen: hmm. it seems silly to have to cancel my account and make a new one just to get a discount
Janell: You would be able to upgrade to the device if you are eligible for 99.99.
Stephen: yeah I see that... so the device is 99.99 for existing customers, but free (after the discount) for new customers?
Stephen: in that case, if you're an existing customer without a contract... it makes more sense to cancel your account with ATT and make a new one?
Janell: Yes, that is correct.
Stephen: Wow.
Stephen: that makes no sense.
Janell: Again, I do apologize.

My guess is AT&T is trying to reduce the number of grandfathered plans that would increase the cost of the promo offer to their bottom line.

not uncommon. almost every carrier has the same stupid restrictions. I used to work in a call center for sprint, and people used to complain about that all the time. I know the canadian carriers have stupid deals that want you to do that too. (im canadian)
