Tmo Nokia Lumia 925 available for $199 contract-free with HSN.com

A couple of weeks ago, Newegg held a flash sale, offering the T-Mobile flavored Lumia 925 for the brilliant price of $249. Today, Home Shopping Network is offering the same device, but for $50 less. That’s a price of just $199, contract-free. The deal is also eligible for HSN’s FlexPay program, giving you the chance to pay as little as $49 per month interest free.

HSN_Lumia_925I have to say, of all the Lumia devices I’ve tried, the 925 is the one that really stands out for me. It has solid build, look and feels fantastic. If you’re in the market for something new, or are just keen to try Windows Phone, you can’t do much better than paying 200 bucks for a Lumia 925.

To take advantage of the offer, and check out all the details, head on over to the offer page on HSN.com.

    Crazy deal. I ordered it from HSN a few days ago for $229.99, but it includes a little speaker case and car charger.

    • $15454173

      Still great deal.

      • Roger Sales

        Yeah, that is a pretty sweet deal. Windows Phone isn’t for everyone, but it gets a lot of hate just because it’s not Android – and that’s just not fair. I wouldn’t personally use it, but it’s a great beginner smartphone for something like my niece(she currently has a 521).

        • Sam

          I did order this but am a little confused, on hsn it says “with tmobile service” I understand its under non contract so does this just mean it can only be used on T-Mobile and I can use my exisiting tmobile service or do I need to sign up on one of the old plans with a contract? I just want to be able to take the sim out of my other tmobile phone and put it in this one and not worry about switching to a old plan or having to start a new account or anything, can anyone clarify this please?

  • JB

    Hmm I may have to take up on this offer if anything but to have a windows phone to play with.

    • eanfoso

      Also for the camera, offline navigation and zero lag

      • JennyC

        yeah super fast! I used to have Android and dropped it so fast after trying WP in a Tmo store. Wish Tmo supported WP better.

      • notyourbusiness

        Indeed. All Nokia Lumia phones seem to have really good cameras, but the 925, 920 and of course 1020′s cameras are amazing!

  • BlackJu

    This is amazing deal if you’re looking to upgrade you 521 or just want to give the OS a chance. I still owe $380 on EIP for my 925. Camera is OUTSTANDING!

    • JennyC

      or upgrade from the 810′in my case ;)

      • AK

        I do not think it is worth upgrading from the 810. If your phone is damaged/lost then definitely a good deal for the 925. I am going to hold onto my 810 for a few more months. AT&T has the 1520 and 1020, and VzW has the Icon. T-Mobile is overdue.

  • Dude

    Oh my. I had no interest in buying a new phone but just HAD to pick up this deal. Great find. Thank you!

  • eanfoso

    About time! Something that isn’t lagdroid related!

    • Trevnerdio

      Hahaha lagdroid…the Note 3 knows no such names.

      • eanfoso

        Yup, it only goes by plasticsung

        • Trevnerdio

          I guess you missed the memo that the Note 3 doesn’t have a plastic back

        • eanfoso

          Um last time I sold one at our store and put it together it is plastic, the whole knitted touch is just plastic put together, when I first saw it (from distance) it looked promising, and I say promising because I had the note 2, which broke on the first drop with a case, but once I held the demo and put the phone together a little piece of me died, it’s sad how sammys marketing can make crap look good, and people bite the rail.

        • Trevnerdio

          Well, it looks good and functions well while still being lightweight. I don’t see an issue with that.

        • eanfoso

          By the looks of it you don’t own one, and the touchwiz is actually laggy, so I’ll respectfully ask you to not to speak for an audience, and share your opinion only when you are 100% sure of what you are talking about, not all of us want to hold an umbrella to our head when making a phone call, plus this article was to give Nokia a little space, but you are just trolling by giving samsuck undeserved prestige

        • Trevnerdio

          I do, in fact, own one. And the guy up there began the unnecessary Android troll. This Nokia deal is wonderful, I almost want to get one just because of the incredible price.
          Also, TouchWiz was significantly optimized in 4.4.2. Now, it seems you don’t own one, so please stop pushing your Samsung hating ways on everyone.

        • JennyC

          Samsung makes Windows Phone too, so I don’t see any reason to hate them. Android is another story. The lag is still there, just not as much. Also, Google’s childish behavior lately and shoving ads down peoples throats left a bad taste in my mouth when even thinking about buying a phone with their crap on it.

        • Trevnerdio

          I agree that Google has gotten pretty ad crazed as of late

        • yankeesusa

          Yea, I definitely agree with that.

        • fentonr

          I’m not crazy about Samsung phones but I think you hit it right on.

        • yankeesusa

          Seems to me like people are running specific apps that make their phones lag. My note 3 never lagged and my nexus 5 for sure doesn’t lag, my Note 2 doesn’t lag if I debloat it and install a custom Rom. As far as Google being childish, what exactly do you mean?

        • eanfoso

          If you in fact own a note 3, why did you imply that the back of it was made of something different than plastic?

        • yankeesusa

          I owned the note 2 and 3 and the 3 definitely isn’t laggy. My note 2 only got laggy after installing a bunch of apps but I resolved that by debloating it and with a KitKat rom the note 2 was amazing. Now I own the nexus 5 and I still would but mind owning the note 3 again. If your Note 3 lags you should check what apps may be causing it.

        • eanfoso

          I have never owned one, just a note 2, and I was able to deal with the annoying little lag it had for its quad core processor, what was a deal breaker for me was the poor build quality and camera of the note 2, along with exponential decrease in battery life

        • yankeesusa

          It’s too bad it didn’t work for you. The note 2 is still the best overall phone I have ever owned. Only thing that got close to beating the battery life on my Note 2 was the droid maxx. Plus the camera may not have been the best but it’s not a deal breaker. If your buying a phone for its camera then that’s your decision. With software updates and installing the Google camera also my Note 2 is great still. I would not give up on a phone just because of a camera. As far as build quality, yes the plastic feels flimsy, no denying that, but with most people putting a case on their phone it doesn’t bug me at all. The great features of a phone always come before the look of it for me. The good thing is android has many different choices so if the note line doesn’t do it for you their are plenty other choices. I’ll probably go back to note 3 once it supports Google wallet again, in the meantime I’ll give the nexus phones a try.

        • eanfoso

          Good for you, and yes it was just a lot of bad experiences with android really, I hate all the bugs the OS has along with the malware, it’s a shame that even my 808 PureView was less buggy than the note 2, oh well, it ultimately comes down to choice, in my case a good camera is a must feature of a phone, along with build quality

        • Roger Sales

          I owned the Note 2 and it was the first android device I had that never buckled under the pressure of a ton of installed apps/usage over time. It always felt good to use until I switched to iPhone.

        • yankeesusa

          Who cares if it’s plastic. That’s your opinion if you don’t like it. Don’t like it, don’t buy it. If you have to defend yourself for not buying a plastic phone then maybe you really want a plastic phone deep inside. :)

        • eanfoso

          I used to like sammys cheaply made products, but I got better, now it’s all about the build quality of the phone for me, not the apps or games an ecosystem may offer, I want a phone for productivity, if I needed something for entertainment I’d get a psvita or something similar

        • yankeesusa

          Well, I don’t know what other phone has as good productivity as the note line. I used it all the time with the spen for things no other phone could do.

        • eanfoso

          Well there’s the high end Nokia lumia range that comes loaded with Microsoft Office, they all have offline navigation, ideal when traveling to a place where t-mobile has crappy / no service, not as cumbersome (except lumia 1520), rich recording audio and video, and you can also input algebraic formulas in an excel sheet just like a note is able to in its whatever it’s called sheet, to name a few why a lumia is more productive than a Sammy phone

    • Captain (African) America-n

      Seven upvotes for ‘lagdroid’? how is that clever or funny?

      • eanfoso

        Because your name shines with intellect right?

        • Captain (African) America-n

          definitely took more thought than ‘lagdroid’, I’m sure

      • Spanky

        Must have been all 7 WP fans that upvoted it! ;)

  • archon

    Was going to purchase this phone when they had the BlackBerry $200 trade in a few weeks ago – but I couldnt get a person to help me in the store. It still would have cost me over $300 even with the trade it! This is a great deal and I just grabbed one!

  • JennyC

    Love love LOVE Windows Phone. I ordered one of these yesterday and will use my Lumia 810 as a BYOD work phone :)

    • fentonr

      This is a great deal. I love my 925 but I paid a little more for mine.

    • cdsu

      What color is the one on sale??

  • Dakota

    HSN has been having specials on Tmoblie phones for months now…Often even larger deals especially when its the “Todays Special” one day only price

  • Warden

    Get rid of the search button.

    • fentonr

      Some people use the search button.

  • Roger Sales

    This is a good move. T-Mobile has needed a better price point for a cheaper Windows Phone with LTE and a front facing camera, and this is what a lot of people have been or will be looking for. It’d be nicer if they introduced a newer WP8 device like a 1020 or a variant of it soon, but this is a great step.

  • notyourbusiness

    I got this phone from Newegg for $250 nearly a month ago. Great deal on a great phone!

  • no2apple

    No windows phone is worth more than 199. Sorry. This is the fact guys..

    • gperez

      Everyone is entitle to their own opinion, I could say the same to iPhones or any other phone. It’s my money and I will spend in a garbage if I want. I would pay top dollars for a Windows phone like 1020 in TM network. I have the IPhone5, the Note3 and now the 925 to play with. Thank you for your opinion but it’s worthless to me.

    • notyourbusiness

      No, it’s your OPINION. You clearly have no clue about WP and have obviously never even seen one up close and in person. THAT is fact.

    • Mark Reese

      Silly boy tricks are 4 kids

    • Captain (African) America-n

      If you want anybody to take the things you seriously, don’t mistake the word ‘fact’ with ‘opinion’… they are the exact opposite of one another…

      • Jay Holm

        Here’s a fact, after a number of years that Windows Phone, in it’s current state, tiles, has been around, it still hasn’t gained a measly 10% marketshare. There’s a fact. The market has spoken.

        • notyourbusiness

          A “number of years?” Windows Phone has been around only since 2010. In other words, it’s still a fairly new OS. It’s already gone past BlackBerry. Given time and the fact that the cheapest versions such as the 520/521 have sold so well in such a short amount of time, it could very well eventually surpass your beloved Android. Also, I believe the marketshare number you listed is incorrect because I recall the number being more like a 15% gain. So please recheck your “facts.”

        • Makoute

          Has it gone past blackberry, or has blackberry completely tanked?

  • Bourgeois

    I placed an order earlier today on HSN. After watching a bunch of reviews on youtube I just couldn’t see myself happy with the phone and canceled my order.

    I’m sorry if this offends anyone, but I would rather pay 3x the cost of the discounted Lumia 925 for the overly priced smartphone I prefer. It feels to me like settling on a Toyoto Yaris just because of a well discounted deal when all along you know you really want a Volkswagen Golf GTI. I never once looked back and regretted buying the GTI.

    For those who do, in fact, like the Windows Phone experience, congrats on a good deal!

    • notyourbusiness

      Hmm… Kind of foolish to prefer paying 3x the amount for a phone. It’s not refurbished, it’s brand new and it’s an insanely great deal. But hey, whatever floats your boat.

      • Bourgeois

        I’ve came to the realization that the Windows Phone certainly doesn’t float my boat. It could be even more discounted and I still wouldn’t buy it.

    • Mark Reese

      So whats the ferrai the galaxy 4 or the iphone….

  • tomarone

    I hope it’s better than the Lumia 521 we got for 130. Do you think my wife will accept this instead of an IPhone? I hope so. BY THE WAY: Can anyone confirm that the video recording is good and also the audio over the video? Is it stereo?
    I think 16GB is great for this deal, on the phone. BY THE WAY: How much of this 16 GB is available after the OS uses it? After shipping, handling, tax, etc. it’s just under $230.00

  • gperez

    The day people agree on everything will be the end of the world. For every phone taste there is a preferred platform. I don’t care what a so call expert says, most of the time is bias and gets paid to give good reviews about certain manufacturer and most of us haven’t even try the other platform and start trashing it, like some apple and androids fans. The only disadvantage I see on a windows phone is applications period.

  • kish

    Does this support LTE on TMO. The specs only mention GSM 850/900/1800/1900 as supported

    • Roger Sales

      It’s an LTE device that supports 700(B), 850, AWS and 1900(PCS).

  • disqus_oQZtqgFk9u

    i really like the 925 (have used it exclusively since July) but I can’t recommend it to friends… I don’t know if it’s Nokia or T-Mobile, but I have had to send mine back 4 TIMES, and my wife’s twice, all for different mechanical and software reasons. OS rebooting, dead speaker, BSOD, and the last one for a camera that died. My replacement 925 is sitting on my front porch waiting for another restore.. sigh

  • JayDubya

    4/14 – the deal is still active and I placed my order this weekend. Great deal!
