Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone Now Free; Nokia Apologizes for Connection Bug

Nokia Lumia 900 FrontSome units of the Lumia 900, the flagship Windows Phone from Nokia that was released this past weekend, appear to be having trouble connecting to AT&T’s data networks.

Forum posts around the internet (and especially at Nokia’s Support Discussions forum) indicate that a number of customers are experiencing an issue in which they initially have a data connection, but cannot reconnect after severing the connection by turning the phone off or placing it in airplane mode. There seems to be a fix that works for some users, where removing the SIM card, performing a hard reset, shutting the phone off, re-inserting the card, and turning it back on restores a data connection, but it doesn’t seem to work for everyone.

This is not an issue that is affecting Lumia 900s across the board, but it’s still a serious issue. AT&T has yet to issue any sort of official response to the problem, but we’ll be sure to let you know if they do.
