Pre-orders from a Microsoft Store get additional bonuses

The six-inch Nokia Lumia 1520 may have announced last month, but we are just finding out that the official launch date for the massive phone is November 22. For those that are eager to throw down some money right this instance, pre-orders are kicking off today.

Nokia has now announced that AT&T customers can pre-order the smartphone for $199.99 with a new two-year agreement. Pre-orders can be done online and in local AT&T stores.

AT&T will offer the phone in matte black, matte yellow, glossy white, or glossy red. Initially only 16 GB versions of the device will be available, but Nokia says AT&T will offer a 32 GB version in the near future.

 
One of the key features for the Lumia 1520 is the 20-megapixel PureView camera featuring ZEISS optics and optical image stabilization. The phone will operate on AT&T's 4G LTE network and features a six-inch 1080p screen.
 
AT&T will also provide buyers with a $20 credit to buy apps in the Windows Phone store and 50 GB of AT&T Walker cloud storage space. Buyers also get a free copy of Halo: Spartan Assault with the purchase.
 
In addition, if you happen to live near a Microsoft Store and purchase the smartphone there, Microsoft will give you $70 worth of app vouchers and those that pre-order from the Microsoft Store will get also a free flip cover.

Unable to order from Microsoft

Just as a warning, I found a "bug" in their website after about 3 hours on the phone with them and AT&T. If your contract with AT&T has not yet expired, but you are still eligible for a phone upgrade, you will NOT be able to use the MS website to order this. It errors and give a message of:

We're sorry. We can't continue with your order because we couldn't find your current AT&T plan in our system. Please visit your nearest Microsoft Store to purchase the selected device(s) and plan.

I called the MS store and they could not help me either.

Just a warning to everyone about the issue.

I had the same problem. However, my contract has already expired and I'm allowed to upgrade another device. I found no problem pre-ordering at AT&T website though.
