I'm pretty sure the Phone itself is 99$ upfront with a 2 year contract, not 99$ a month for the contract itself. So it would be 99$ + your monthly bill.

You guys need to update since it is coming to At&t http://www.att.com/cellphones/htc/one-m8-windows.html

I'll be moving to the US from Europe in a couple months and already have a US Nexus 5 that making me consider only AT&T and T-Mo, but the One M8 Windows Phone had me tempted to go back to Verizon as I'm a pretty big WP fan ever since I had my Lumia 920. Really looking forward to this phone.
