    Knowing Verizon it will probably just show up next week sometime. No announcement, no ads, no hoopla, nothing. Just a phone for them to toss in the back and their employees to know next to nothing about.

    Gods I hate Verizon.

    I would switch but I still have an unlimited plan. To switch to the new tier plans would cost me almost twice what I pay now for similar service.

    Love my Trophy. Love Windows Phone. Hate money grubbing cell phone companies.

    Has anybody heard anything from Verizon about any possible preorder or release date? I was kind of expecting to hear something today but there was nothing at all.

    what's the official word on going from 3G to 4G unlimited on vzw? I thought I read that from now on if you upgrade on contract (subsidized pricing) you'll automatically be switched over to the shared plan. In other words you'd have to buy the phone outright to keep unlimited - is this true?

    What was it about the iPhone 5 that made you guys buy it and then sell it? I'm kind of shocked because you pretty much knew what you were getting with that phone before even buying it.

    Add me to the list. Got the iP5 on launch day. Going to get an 8X ASAP! Except I want the Red one.

    Personally, I have had MANY phones throughout my life. I loved WP7 but wanted something new once I heard about WP8. Got the iPhone 5 (I had a 4 and a 4s too) and it's a great device! I really do like the iP5 but I miss how I had everything MS / Windows in my life when I hand my WP7. No, I am not a fanboy (I have a macbook too) but it's just easier to stick with one brand and I DO NOT LIKE ANDROID AT ALL and will never own anything google ever again.

    I also really like what I see with WP8, Windows 8 (Tablet and PC), and Xbox and how they all interact. Smartglass etc...

    For me it was because it was the newest phone on Verizon. I HAD.... I cant stress HAD enough, to move to Verizon in Sept. And because of moving to Verizon, there was no way I was getting a droid phone. (I have a Xoom tablet and had an evo shift and really don't care for Android). And there was no way in **** I was going to get a 2 yr old trophy. I really thought WP8 was going to launch in early Nov and would have been able to switch phones. Well, now Im stuck in a 2 year agreement and will have to pay full price to get the 8x. So I figured I'd get my best bang for buck out of selling an iPhone 5. I checked ebay and they are selling used ones for 600 and 800 bucks yet. I'd be happy to get 500.

    However, my mother in law wanted to get a new phone and I talked her into a phone swap. She purchases the 8x, and then we'll swap phones. (She'd rather have an iPhone). So its a win-win. Yeah, it slightly used but in mint condition... and shes getting a $30 case included.

    I would have held back the carrier change for the ACTUAL launch of the WP8 on Verizon but I couldn't wait. I was in a position with having to add a few lines and I was not going to do another 2 years on Sprint. (After 13 with them the service in the past year went in the toilet. My HTC Arrive was slower than dialup on their network. Not just mine but the wifes and the Evos. It was bad here.) So with those 2 things... quality of service, and adding lines... that was the main reason for the move. And I don't regret it (in regards to the service. Cant believe what we were missing in regards to data speed.)

    I like my iPhone a lot. It just doesn't do some things that I want it to do. I had a htc Titan when I was on AT&T. When I moved to Verizon all they had was the trophy so I got the nexus, biggest POS ever. I ended up buying an iPad 3 a couple weeks ago and it was ok. It wouldn't really work for excel and word like I wanted so I returned it for a surface. I love my surface by the way!!! So the surface has made me want a windows phone again, so I'll be picking up the 8x as soon as I can

    Wow, the 8X is only $49 on AT&T. I sure hope that Verizon looks at their pricing because that's a huge difference if they're really going to charge $199!

    Nevermind...just read the fine print. It's $199 for the 16GB model and $99 for the 8GB.

    Just figured I'd post an update! I just FLEW down to Best Buy to pick up an 8x after I saw the WPCentral headline that it was available in-store! Sadly, it wasn't. Anywhere. They didn't get them in yet!

    The associate told me they'll be getting it in on Monday, 11/12. Hoping this is true!

    Where is Verizon?!

    What's your source?

    Also, if it was a 1 a.m. pre-order for tomorrow morning, wouldn't WPcentral have caught wind?

    After much deliberation, I have landed on the 8X. It's just sexy, many reviewers raving about it. Paul Thurrott's review sealed it for me.

    What we know:
    Verizon-Coming in Red, Black(both exclusives) and Blue, 16G only as far as we know.
    AT&T-Coming in Blue & Limelight Yellow(exclusive), 16G & 8G configurations(Limelight only comes in 8G)
    T-Mo-Coming in Blue only although it would be cool if they had some kind of electric magenta exclusive.

    I want Limelight. I love it. It's a known fact that people love the colors of the 8X and I have loved that eye-popping Yellow since I first saw it at launch. The fact that it is 8 Gigs only bothers me. I know Skydrive has us all dialed in with cloud storage, but really, why release an 8G anything at all(I can't believe the 8S is only 4G)?

    Bearing all this in mind, I am leaning toward buying an unlocked Limelight 16 from Negri($567.50) or somewhere comparable and going with something like RedPocket for a little while as I am on Sprint and need to leave for WP8. I've posted some of this elsewhere here and noone has chimed in. Is anyone else keen on that Yellow? I love how different it is.

    Thanks

    -Doc

    EDIT: Many people inquiring on the off-contract Verizon price: $669.00
