Every time I try to order it off of this site it says that I cant.I dont know where I can find this phone but it would be nice to have it either that or a phone with a camera just as nice that is $99.00 with an upgrade. any help would be appreciated thanks!

Bought my Lumia Icon from amazon 3 weeks ago. even have it updated to 8.1 since it only comes with 8.

was easy enough going through the forums and fining a way to get the Preview for Developers installed

and running. Works like charm and having Cortana is amazing to use.Just search the forums and you find

the ways to get it updated to, and buying from amazon was simple using my Verizon account.

You can currently buy the Icon for $99 (on Verizon contract) through Amazon. It won't be back on the VZW website.

The Icon is an awesome phone!  Hope ya get it as soon as possible!  I loved my 928 and got it the day it came out, but then had to get the Icon the day it came out due to the camera, mics, and all around awesomeness of Windows Phone.  Be patient.  You're going to love it!

The Icon could be a wonderful phone.  The person who influenced me to try out a Windows phone just received his brand new iPhone 6Flex(plus) I feel like I have made a 2 year mistake.

If you have an Icon, you are still ahead of the iPhone 6 Flex (I mean, plus...now see what you got me doing?)  Smiley Happy  iPhones are for sheeple.  Windows Phone is for those ahead of the curve.  Didn't used to be that way, but it certainly is now!

I disagree, the icon is an ok phone but mine constantly drops data, reboots itself on its own.  As it turns out, I do use a lot of apps and features of an android device.  If the manufacturers, carriers, and application developers do not stay on top and keep their devices relevant they will lose their supporters and customers.  I really can't stand this device, but for now it appears, I am stuck with it.  Hopefully Verizon wakes up and gets the update released.

Never had any of the issues you speak of and I'm even using the Developer Preview on mine.  LOVE my phone and Cortana is a far better experience than Apple or Google have, yet.  Oh, and the camera...WOW!!  Three mics for live concert recording?  HOLY WOW!!

I have no idea why anyone would be desperately searching for this phone but I sold mine to the tune of $325 and am excited to get back to android! Been an android user for years and decided to try something different. I was under the delusion that it had 8.1 on it when I bought it, but it didn't, and with no confirmation from Verizon on when it's coming I've lost interest. I also don't see 8.1 being an update that will satisfy my needs anyway.

Better yet, ignore Verizon altogether if you want a Windows Phone.  These guys only care about their Windows Phone users up to the point where the phone is bought.  After that, you'll find they want to act like you don't exist. If you ever want to run Windows Phone 8.1, Verizon is not going to work for you.  I have the Icon, and it is an awesome piece of hardware, but if I had it to do over again, I'd SO have stuck with AT&T (which I regrettably left) and gotten the 1520 - it is a bit big for my taste, but it has similar specs to the Icon AND they've had 8.1 for several months now.  Windows phone is simply a marketing experiment for Verizon - don't go with them unless you are happy never getting updates.

you really aren't missing much with this device.  My advice, go get the htc m8 Android

Ignore Verizon CS go directly to Microsoft and order either online or a local store (if you are near one) and get an unlocked one.  You get better support directly from Microsoft, a better warranty, and less hassle from them.  Unlocked will be full price but then you are not locked into a 2 year contract which Verizon wants.  I would think you would be better off going to AT&T since they have already released the Cyan update as well as Windows 8.1.  I think the 928 is pretty much the same as the 930 on AT&T.

If you live close to a Microsoft store, try that. Or go to the Windows Phone web site and order it there. You can get contract pricing there.

I got mine at my local MS store. Better customer service than VZW stores.
