Microsoft earlier stopped selling Lumias in the USA, listing them as out of stock indefinitely, now the firm has found the box of Lumias that was stuck under the floor made more of the available for purchase.

If you’re interested in purchasing one of Microsoft’s Windows 10 phones for some reason, you can head over to Microsoft’s online store and pick up the Lumia 550 (don’t do this), 950 and 950 XL. Microsoft doesn’t offer the 650 anymore, but you can pick up those phones either unlocked or via ATT in the case of the Lumia 950.

However if you really must have a Windows Phone, Alcatel also sells its much more pleasing Idol 4S in the Microsoft Store for $470. There are barely any downsides to picking those up over Microsoft’s half-hearted Lumias. Sure it lacks NFC, but unless you’re using one of the 5 banks that supports Microsoft’s Wallet, you’re likely not getting much mileage out of this anyway.

Aside from that, HP’s excellent but pricey 3 in one Elite x3 is still on sale, so you can purchase that to get a feel of the ideas Microsoft wants to implement in their mobile platform.

For the rest of the world, Microsoft’s Lumia models basically do not exist anymore. In the UK, neither the  Microsoft Store nor any of the more popular carriers have any of these devices in store (understandable, they are two-year-old technology at this point).
