    With the launch of Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 Mobile flagship handsets, the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, came a flurry of controversy surrounding the availability of both devices. We learned in October that both new flagship devices would be exclusive to AT&T, which caused people to assume that Verizon and T-Mobile weren’t interested in carrying Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 Mobile smartphones.

    One brave soul filed an FCC complaint about Verizon “blocking” the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL from their network, and she received a response from Verizon’s Consumer Inquiries & Complaints Division. Turns out, Verizon was never approached by Microsoft to have the Lumia 950 or Lumia 950 XL on the Verizon network.

    MS responds to carrier availability questions about Lumia 950 + 950 XL

    Over the weekend we reported that Verizon points the blame at Microsoft for the latest Windows 10 Mobile phones, the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950XL, only being available for purchase at AT&T and/or unlocked at the Microsoft Store in the US.

    In a response to a consumer’s letter, Verizon’s Consumer Inquiries and Complaints Division revealed that Verizon was never approached by Microsoft to sell either of the two latest Lumia phones. The letter stated:

    “Because there has been little consumer demand for Windows 10 Smartphones, Verizon has chosen to not carry the Nokia Lumia 10 in its retail channels. However, if Nokia still wanted to make the device available to Verizon customers, it could have the device certified for use on the Verizon network through Verizon’s Open Development program. To date, Nokia has not chosen to do so.”

    In the letter Verizon refers to Microsoft as Nokia. The statement reflected earlier comments by T-Mobile CEO John Legere who said, “To be clear: We did not turn down the new Windows devices. MSFT gave to AT&T. If Microsoft wakes up, we’ll talk about T-Mobile carrying.”

    Maybe Verizon and T-Mobile didn't want the same Windows 10 phones that AT&T is going to have, but wanted carrier-specific phones? Nokia used to be willing to do that, before MS bought them.
