I have been using the 710 for a number of months now but am looking to upgrade to a new Windows 8 phone. I love my 710 but would be nice to have a larger screen and Word With Friends. Are any of you 710 owners looking to upgrade. What did you choose and why. I have no interest in the 920. My hands are small and it is just too large. Am looking more at the 810, 820 or the HTC 8X. Do you think an upgrade will be coming for the 710? I assume the 8 series is more of a replacement for the Lumia 800.

You may want to hold off. There is a rumored Lumia 830 which may be the Lumia 710's direct successor. Meaning, it will be smaller, but just as powerful as a Lumia 820/810. I'm holding off until I see more information on this Lumia 830. I love my 710 and do not want a big brick of a phone like the 810 or 920. No thanks.

If size is a factor the 810 is nearly the same size as the 920, 2mm less width and 3 mm shorter, so it's going to feel just as big coming from the 710. Plus Words with Friends is on the Lumia 710 on T-mobile.

Hi Everyone, I cannot say enough good things about the 710, its the only Cellphone I've come across that has literally a "No hands" Texting ability when responding to sent Text messages.
The fact that you would have to hit the power button then touch the "Messanging" tile and choose either a new or existing contact option and then hitting the "Microphone" option to send a message, is still better than any other phone I've come across, so I'm hoping that any new model that Nokia releases still has this option, if anyone has any new information on other manufacturers that do have a simular or better 'hands free" texting option pls send me some email, email@example.com.

please help me.
You cant upgrade to Windows phone 8 with a Nokia Lumia 710. You can upgrade to Windows 7.8 however, which gives the same home screen as Windows phone 8, and new lock screen etc. Connect your phone to your pc, make sure you have Zune software installed and check to see if the update is available

I have also been using my L710 for a year now.
I am going to buy the Lumia 720.
According to me its a perfect upgrade.
You said that L920 is too big for you, that's what makes L720 even better for you.
L720 is a nice budget phone with brilliant camera.
I am going to get me by the end of this month.
So I think you should go with L720.

If I had to upgrade today from my Lumia 710, I'd get the 520 because it's at a budget price and has basically the same screen size. I also like the fact that I could expand its storage with an optional microSD card.
