Talking What should I do with my new Nokia Lumia 800?

I, amazingly, was one of the few people to win one of the new Nokia Lumia 800 devices from Microsoft in their app competition thing. So, i have this awesome phone, but i dont know what to do with it. Should I sell it and get $500 from it? Its still in the box. Before I open it, i want to know if its possible to get this phone to work with sprint. If i cant, then i have no idea what im going to do with this phone. I already have a windows phone (htc arrive) and i enjoy it a lot. I dont really need a new one, especially if i cant use it with sprint.
Any suggestions?

Re: What should I do with my new Nokia Lumia 800?

The phone is GSM based (AKA Needs a SIM card), No, it will not work on Sprint's CDMA network...( so it's not possable to get it working on Sprint)

Congrads on winning it ! What's your app that won ? If you really hate it, you can just ship it to me, I might even change carriers for the phone

The Lumina 800 is a pretty cool device...

Re: What should I do with my new Nokia Lumia 800?

Ok, thanks. I wont use it then. I think I will sell it. Should i sell it on ebay or craigslist? And also does anyone have an estimated price range if i sell it? Im not a trusted seller (or whatever its called now) on ebay, so i dont think many people would be willing to buy it. The app that won was just a simple game i made with xna, it took me a total of about 6 hours to put it together, im not that proud of it. But, alas, it won me a phone.

Re: What should I do with my new Nokia Lumia 800?

I would want about $500 for it. I saw some on ebay going for up to $700, that would be amazing but im not really expecting that.

Sell it fast, the lu 900 is expected to retail for $99 on AT&T with contract - no contract price would be $500
