In related news, T-Mobile is going all-in with the price on the Lumia 710 knocking it down to free after a $50 mail-in rebate. Rumor has it the price is good for new and upgrade eligible customers, though we’ve been unable to confirm the latter part. Drop a line in the comments if you see the offer available as an upgrade.

  • I can confirm that it’s free with upgrade after $100 mail in rebate.  They are also offering $50 or more for a trade in when ordering the Lumia 710.

    • $50 for a Nuron?  Where can I unload my old one for that price?

      • Zolor23

        You have to buy a Lumia, then go to and enter LUMIA as the promo code

      • Deaconclgi

        I wish I would have known, I have 2 Nurons in my nightstand, lol, one of them is in my disqus picture.

        • Bklynman

          Sell them on Ebay. You can get at least $50-$100. for them on there.

        • exeot

          the phone is junk. Resistive touch screen, no wifi and bulky… I can’t see how someone would buy it for that price but good luck.

    • Bklynman

      You can sell your old phones on Ebay,Nuron go anywhere from $50-over $100,on there.with The Defy All I believe they go for $100 or more. HTC HD7,not sure but I believe that would go for well over $100. on Ebay. Check it yourself. Don’t take my word for it.

  • This phone I’d say is doing very well. Good job Nokia.

  • Yvrcouve

    Or, save a helluva lot of time and effort and buy one off ebay and you”ll get it within a week!

  • Mloudt

    now that t-mobile has sold this phone for 3months now they need to work out a deal with nokia to bring the lumia 800 to t-mobile by the end of may or early july it will sell well. fyi att releases lumia 900 lte tomorrow 99 bucks new two year contract that is going going  to make them richer

  • My wife got her Cyan one this week and loves it.  Thanks for giving me the heads up on this or I would never have known.

  • SensationUser

    I purchased the “free” phone when Tmobile did their any 4g phone for free sale in February.  I have been checking my rebate status to see when my Gift card would be mailed out and today I see that my phone number was “unqualified” for the rebate???  What is this about??  Anyone else getting the middle finger by Tmobile right now?

    • Vjballa21

      go to and go to contact us. get a hold of someone from the rebate department and they’ll fix it for you or tell you how to fix it.

  • Hmm, what to do with that single UPC code on the box… mail-in rebate or “free” color cover? Hmmm…

    • Deaconclgi

      I took a picture of the UPC code and mailed the picture in and I got my cover.

  • Timortech

    In other news that has nothing to do with this. The Htc sensation has been removed for tmobiles web site.

    • Craibailey

      The Sensation is out of Stock. New Shipment will be coming in soon.

      • EXIBITman

        No new shipments coming anytime soon.

  • Od312

    Nokia is stupid. They should make an android phone.

    • Guest

      If they were stupid they would do what you said (Android) but actually they are verey smart and Went with Windows Phone.

  • Snoopyalien24

    Wow! Holy crap! I haven’t been on here in a long time, hello David!

    Still loyal to tmo :D 

  • Deaconclgi

    This is basically what I emailed you about….and in my article on MyNokiaBlog, I stated the same dates that Nokia just confirmed. My article was on April 1st, I even linked the Terms and Conditions that explained the new date.
    David, is your email still the same as the one I used when I leaked the HD2 and Nuron in the wild? Maybe you didn’t get my email about the Xpress Covers arrival and final date to submit if your email address has changed.

    • Kalel

       Just use the “contact us” at the bottom of the page.

      • Deaconclgi

        Thanks, I use that going forward.

  • C5downlow

    It is true.. It’s free after rebate but if you trade in any phone you will get another 50$. So another word you are getting paid 50$ to buy lumia 710.

  • no2apple

    Who is buying single core VGA phones in 2012 ???

    • Auser72

      People that can’t afford or choose not to spend $200-$500 on a hind phone. Besides that the phone operates smoothere than most dualcore android phones,and is lag free.

    • Guest

      Those who are smart enough that know a phone with single core and mubet better OD whcih has much much faster speed can beat all those dual and quad core sluggish battery hungry android phones or better say craproid phones. Yeah smart people not you!

  • Pak

    The problem with upgrades these days are all the extra fees and prices that are not shown as part of that “$0” they bugle at you. For example, I just added a Lumia which is supposed to be FREE with upgrade to my cart. $99 for the phone, taxes and fees of $23, then the upgrade fee of $18, and finally the $5.99 shipping fee. So the “Free” phone costs you $146.98 upfront and even after the $100 mail in rebate, that “FREE” phone still ends up taking $46.98 out of your pocket.

  • the dude

    same thing happened to me and I was told i needed to have an unlimited minute plan for the rebate to be valid. Wasn’t told this until I was “unqualified”. That was quite a slick maneuver to for one onto an unlimited minute plan.

  • None

    Are there any windows phones on the horizon at all. I have heard of NONE. Low end preferable but the lumia with physical keys is a deal breaker. Anyone know???

    • None

      Need low end because I work with monkeys and they are hard on my phones.

      • Guest

        Get Lumia 710 or HTC Radar. Both great phones and very well built quality. Smotth and fast as well. :)

  • Hnwillis

    You can also get an additional $50 for trading in an old working phone.  Just go to thw website and use Promo Code: Lumia.  Click on Start.

  • The final page says that you have to “Ship your used phone to the Trade-In center within 30 days of your new phone purchase” and I unfortunately bought my wife’s Lumia the day it came out.  I guess I will be going the Ebay route for the Nuron.
