  • In the US, the only phone that is currently for sale from Microsoft is the HP Elite x3 - $500, down from $780. Their own 950 and 950XL are not longer listed. All the inexpensive phones like the Lumia 640 are no longer being sold. I bought a Lumia 640s back when they were on sale for a discounted price and it makes an excellent test device. If you are looking for something inexpensive then your best bet is eBay or your local craigslist (or equivalent).
