AT&T will be offering the Nokia Lumia 920 for $99 on a 2 years (that's right, 24 months) contract and off contract - $450. Also thrown in the AT&T deal is a free wireless charger including 4 colour choices.
Furthermore, Rogers sold the Lumia 920 (at least the first batch that went out last week) for $678 off-contract.
Competitively priced? Nope.
Colour options? Nope.
Customer satisfaction? Nope.
Hello Rogers? Wake up!

You are completely missing the point here. $99 on a 2 year is a much better deal than $99 on a 3 year. Instead of just accepting it you'd ask yourself, well if all the states do is 2-years, then their 2 year price would simply be more money. i.e. $149 on 2 year plan.
Regarding the outright price, there is no contest. Which is probably why you chose to not respond to it. If AT&T is in fact $150 cheaper, i'd rather take the 1 and 1/2 hour drive down to North Dakota than fork the cash over to Rogers.
It appears Nokia might appease we unlucky folks who can't seem to find any information about wireless chargers, starting on Nov 16th. Keep checking back, but it looks like we might all be eligible for a free charging plate directly from Nokia.

If I didn't already score a 920 at the Microsoft BUILD conference last week, I would definately be heading south of the border to pick up a Cyan Lumia 920.
As I mentioned on another site, "Rogers **bleep** up a Windows Phone Launch isn't news, it's a religion!"
The price is not exactly the same at Roger because it's with a 3 years contract,
BUT you can upgrade you phone after 2 years, if you start a new contrat 🙂
So, the 99$ is the same if you change after 2 years, but you lose money if you kept it more that that!
Say what you will but at least the Rogers version doesn't have a Rogers branding on the front of their device like the AT&T.
3 year contracts are too long...
Well, thank the CRTC for allowing the 3-year contracts, and also thank the telco companies for taking every opportunity to gouge us for money.
