Are either of you able to confirm that the 950 XL is not coming to O2?

That is correct. Currently there are no plans to range this device but would always recommend you register your interest in 'Windows Phone' devices here, should this position change in the future: https://www.o2.co.uk/getupdates

This is bad news for some of us who have been holding off contract renewals - I'll now have to consider our options with other MNOs...

 

Why has O2 waited so long to say this?

New hardware ranges aren't always straight forward unfortunately and it's only recently that it's been confirmed we won't be ranging this. I have sent feedback to our portfolio team on this though, as I know the 950XL is a device many of you have been excited about and been looking forward to.

Could you please feedback as well that it's not just the disappointment, it is the time taken to inform customers and potential customers.  Considering the range of Apple and Samsung devices carried by the network, the 'flagship device' which is a profit generator should be given the opportunity to succeed.  O2's own reputation as a market leader for all devices will suffer from this.  The Lumia 950 may be seen as a "popular option", the XL would also be a popular device, especially for those looking to achieve secure email and better mobile working.

I'm really disappointed how long it has taken to get this answer. I kind of suspected you wouldn't be getting it when only the 950 was listed. Why can't O2 just be upfront about it. I appreciate that you guys might not know either, and it might be an internal communication issue. Whatever it is, it needs to be sorted out. I'll be looking at other networks now

That's very disappointing to hear O2 not supporting Windows users. This'll be the 2nd time I've been forced off the network due to their lack of commitment to Windows

My Contract expired in October and I've been holding out to hear news on whether o2 will supply the 950xl.. after hearing that new I'll have to weigh my options as I really want the 950XL
