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.

Wooah Jason,

You had better be careful, or you can prove that they were "in on the scam".

I don't live in your country, but I'm quite sure you can't go round making claims that companies or people are in on scams to defraud people without some legitimate evidence.

I wouldn't say because they didn't reply to your email as evidence of them being in collusion with fraudsters.

No-one here has seen your email, it could have been abusive, which is why they didn't reply. In which case I don't blame them.

You could have used your "weight" in the media to get extra allowances not provided for anyone else. Special treatment so to speak with the threat of "blackmail" if they didn't.

I'm sure you personally are above that, but I still wouldn't put it past you. You are human. And humans can, and do, crazy things.

So I would like to see more evidence from you that they are in collusion with Spammers, rather than take it as verbatim they did not reply to one of your emails that we have no way of knowing just why they didn't reply.

I believe Jason is saying they are "in on the scam" because they get a cut of the premium text messages.

Since he stated that was his belief in his post (that being in on the scam means you are profiting from the scam) he should be ok.

Worst case at this point is Sprint sends a cease and desist letter possibly requesting/requiring a retraction. In the event that Jason does not the issue would go to court for slander, which would be hard to make stick and would be bad publicity.

I expect Sprint will not do anything, though I would encourage them (and all cell phone companies) to provide an easy way to maintain their list of premium text subscriptions (like a list on their web portal or an app which allows the user to approve/block services using a special pin).
