Nokia Lumia 1020 Contract Free - $499 At Microsoft Store Listen to this article

The Microsoft Store is showing this contract-free AT&T Nokia Lumia 1020 for $499. Compare to AT&T with a $609 no-contract cost. The phone is lauded by most for its 41 megapixel camera and 4.5″ PureMotion display. Windows Phone is  a mobile operating system in progress, but this is a great deal if your main concern is beautiful photos.

Nokia Lumia 1020 Off Contract Deal


The Nokia Lumia 1020 sports Windows Phone 8 (upgradeable to Windows Phone 8.1 per the Microsoft site) as well as a 4.5″ ClearBlack PureMotion HD+ (1280 x 768) display with 334 ppi.

This phone is carrier locked to AT&T and your mileage will vary on how willing AT&T will be with unlocking it. You’ll probably have an easier time if you are an AT&T subscriber,  know somebody who is, or don’t mind calling AT&T a few hundred times in a row.

The camera is what sells the deal. 41-megapixel Pureview, Carl Zeiss Tessar lens, optical image stabilization, xenon flash, high-resolution 3x zoom, 1080p video (full HD, 1920 x 1080).


This is one of the best no-contract deals for a Nokia Lumia 1020 that we’ve seen in, well, forever.
