I was at best buy looking at the surface pro. Another guy walked up and was talking to the store's win8 guru. He said he worked for MS but in the phone division. He confirms that a flagship level phone is coming to Tmo soon. Cool!
Yeah, I know it's been rumored before but this makes me much more certain that this will happen. Interesting, he also pulled out a blurple 8x. Said he traded in his 920 due to weight.

I'm taking this rumor with a huge grain of salt, I'm not sure if a MS employee would go around randomly letting people in on stuff like that, but I'm going to try to remain optimistic since that's fairly awesome if true.
Though if the "flagship" is a phablet with a 5"+ screen, I won't be buying it - but it'll be good for WP on T-Mobile to have a flagship.

No one in his right mind working for Microsoft would risk his job by blabbing that kind of information to someone that wasn't a person he trusted not to reveal his identity - as in a trusted media outlet person who he knows will not reveal his source. My money is on one of two things:
a) he doesn't work for Microsoft, and likes to see the rumor mill going, wants to see how far his rumor will go.
b) he works at Microsoft, and is about to get laid off from his job taking out the garbage.

Finally, I don't know this guys name and probably couldn't pick him out of a lineup.

You call it attacking character. I call it setting the record straight. The only thing his "confirmation of rumor" means is that he can read as well as the rest of us. There's no way that guy worked in an informed capacity at Microsoft.

Mystery man can read, too, apparently. He didn't say anything we didn't already hear elsewhere.

This gives the rumor a bit more validity. Thank you, op.

Oh, brother. *I* heard that rumor before reading the op, and my name is Joe Nobody. I don't remember where and I'm not going to waste the effort looking it up just to feed the trolls.

I'm not talking about the older articles that talked about catwalk in general - those didn't mention T-Mobile, and it's always nice to hear when a phone is coming to T-Mobile, particularly if it's a high end phone already rumored to be in the works.
Either way, unless some other reputable outlet reported it before them, The Verge were the ones who just made this rumor much more valid. The rumor could have been around since 2011 but it's much more legit now than it was then (for previously mentioned reasoning about reporting @ The Verge).
