I have wanted a windows phone for a long time. Especially a lumia. But when the 822 came out on verzion i was disappointed. First off on other companies the color choice is amazing, but verizon only has black white and grey. The grey (the one i would buy) isn't wireless charging. I am in love with the 920, but the look of the 822 is modest at best for me. And i am also scared that right when i buy the 822, they will release a 920 for verizon.
(and just so everyone knows, i am a huge fan of nokia and their lumia line. Also i am a huge fan of windows phone 8. Im just disappointed with the cosmetics if the 822)

dude. both Verizon and Nokia are in a stage where they need to fix up their relationship. so they start small. as 2 months go by. they will have a much better phone. maybe even better than the 920. this is how stuff goes by man. you need to know that

oh. ok :-). um. I think maybe wait a little longer. because we are near the end of the year and you could have the MS surface phone coming to your carrier

well. it depends on tem though. not really the person. and if it turns bad. then that is when MS gets involved and makes a phone for Verizon and Nokia for AT&T

I purchased my 822 on Verizon thinking that it would be a holdover until a better phone comes along. I am extremely happy with the 822. I've changed my mind and will probably keep it until/if Nokia brings something amazing to Verizon. It would probably have to be something better than a 922 for me to switch at this point. Go for the 822 you won't be disappointed.

You can afford to buy a "hold over" phone? plan to purchase the next one off contract?
I'm in the same spot. Like the 920 but only have 822 as an option. I hope there will be another lumia coming for vzw. Been eligible for an upgrade for over a year.

I think the 822 is a great value, especially if you get it from Best Buy or Wal-Mart. I bought mine at Verizon on launch day and I think it was money well spent. The 8X is very nice too. If my store would have had one in stock when I bought I very well might have bought it, it feels much better in the hand than the 822.

If you are happy with what you have now I would wait for six months to see what will be coming out. From what I have read we should hear about a few new devices in March. Hopefully if Verizon gets a top tier phone Nokia will have worked out some of the issues by then. If not, grab the 822, so far it seems to be the most trouble free handset. I am due in May so I'm hoping for more options myself.
