There are a lot of cheap Windows Phones coming up within the next weeks, as Microsoft stopped cashing in for the OS and OEM's can use it for free now:

Thanks for posting this.
I don't use data. I have never yet had a smart phone.
I am thinking aboout Windows phones.
Last week Amazon was sellling a Nokia Lumia 520 for $39.99.
I am a really slow adopter of smart phones
so I will go very inexpensive on a first one.

The Nokia 630 Dual SIM is currently on sale at German Mediamarkt and Saturn stores for just € 109: http://hukd.mydealz.de/deals/nokia-l...-saturn-395258

Someone is pushing their phones pretty aggressively into the market these days.

Tempting. I've already got a Samsung ATIV S and a Lumia 520 (and may end up with a Lumia 521 as well) but there's always room for more. Considering how terrible cheap dual-SIM Android phones like the Samsung Galaxy Duos can be (1.78 GB internal storage, but you can't store apps on the SD Card), this is a great deal.

I own a Lumia 630 dual sim, bought in Germany through Amazon, and I'm satisfied with it. It has become my only phone at the moment and I'm so happy to have just 1 phone always with me instead of two.

It works well and it's cheap. Of course it has some drawbacks, mainly the lack of proximity and light sensors and the flash, which is useful when used as a torch light. It's also not good as a "World phone" since it only supports WCDMA 900 and 2100 (it's ok on GSM, but not good for data) and it's not LTE.

One weird thing which happens to me, living by the border between Italy and Slovenia, is that every time I change the sim I use for data it perfectly works but I see "Si Vodafone" as the registered operator even if I'm still perfectly using Wind and Vodafone IT!

I'm going to rekindle this old thread. Expansys has a good deal on a Windows Mobile Dual SIM phone which has just about every band you can think of. While I prefer IOS or Android, this looks like a great travel phone.

http://www.expansys-usa.com/microsof...-black-276476/

I'm still looking for a good callback service recommendation for WM.

With some of the great pan-European data deals out there and some of the other SIMs which now offer free incoming on non-surcharged phone numbers (e.g. a regular US or UK mobile number -- not IOM, Jersey, Lichtenstein, Estonia) I can see some great possibilities here.
