Microsoft is looking to clear inventory of the Lumia 950 XL and Lumia 950 smartphones, which means consumers can buy one at full price and get the second one for free. The deal is available via Microsoft's U.S. web store. Specifically, people who purchase the 950 XL at $649 will receive a Lumia 950, valued at $549, for free. Both devices are being sold unlocked with support for GSM carriers, such as AT&T and T-Mobile. The promotion is available while supplies last through May 2. Microsoft reported shipments of about 2.3 million Lumia phones in its most recent financial documents, which represents a steep drop from the 8.6 million it shipped in the year-ago period. The company admitted it is sitting on a lot of excess inventory of its flagship Windows 10 Mobile devices. Moreover, the company expects "year over year revenue declines to deepen as we work through our Lumia channel position." Cricket Wireless is expected to launch Microsoft's mid-range model, the Lumia 650, early next month. Microsoft has recently pushed a significant update to its Windows 10 Mobile platform and updated core apps such as email, Groove Music, and the Edge browser.

No kidding?

Ok yeah lets manufacture a phone that is only compatible with T-Mobile/AT&T networks and then sit here with our thumbs up our asses and wonder why the phone isn't selling very well. Whoever made this decision at Microsoft is the biggest idiot in the history of big idiots. I was so excited when I heard these phones were coming out and then I learned they were not going to be compatible on Sprint's network. So alright lets offer a BOGO deal and hopefully reduce some inventory. Guess what, the phones still don't work on Sprint or Verizon. I read all over the place how folks on Verizon and Sprint are pissed they can't use the new Microsoft smartphone and there are a ton of folks. Microsoft is stupid stupid stupid.
I agree 100%. There's a direct correlation between companies that have relatively no market share and companies that release stuff only for AT&T. If the 950XL had been available on Sprint I wouldn't have a Note 5 right now. That's one missed sale righ...
