I bit, done. I only did it becuase I use Pandora a bunch on my iphone 5. last year I did the free trial for xbox music and then paid a few months becuase i liked it so much . I had been listening to radio for so long i forgot how great it was to actually customize my own playlist as if i owned the songs. I saw this deal and thought heck, i hate my iphone, what better way to atleast try a windows phone out with no ties and getting a year of choosing music that I want to hear. I have been looking at windows phone for a while now. I just haven't switched because, though I've never got used to my iphone, i am vested in it with apps. I have read a lot of good things on this phone. I can't wait to recieve it.

I think this is an absolutely great way to get users on MS's platform and services. The Luimia 520/1 is a great device for the price, and who knows, maybe Xbox Music is good!

No thanks. I'm quite content with Spotify Premium and my vast collection of ripped CD/Vinyl FLAC and mp3s plus even though it's free I still don't want a windows phone.

Still don't want one. Maybe for free. Or maybe NOT.

So for under 100 bucks I could get this music subscription and a phone that I could use as a standalone Windows RT device?

While the phone does pale in comparison to my 2 year old phone (how'd that happen) if I were interested in-or knew really anything about-Windows RT dev this doesn't sound like the worst way to get an actual device on which to dev.

XBox music pass? Sorry, I'll pass, I can get FREE music elsewhere!

Too bad there's not a Verizon-compatible version. I'm not looking to double my phone bill at the moment.

Let me guess, USA only?

Definitely not Canada...for the same reason Canadian protectionist legislation keeps Spotify and other services out.

I thought canada was more lenient with the whole pirating thing.

Werent the artist protesting the restrictive DRM mandates?

It's not about piracy; it's about Canadian Content regulations. Television and radio (and streaming services by extension now) have to ensure that 40% of the broadcast is content of Canadian origin. It's unrealistic nationalistic bullshit, IMO but it effectively keeps streaming services out of Canada. (Most Canadians posting on the internet seem oblivious to this and keep complaining like the world is keeping stuff from them when it's their own protectionist legislation.)

Sad but true.
