Got my 822 yesterday. Unboxed it, and started playing around. All I have to say is that I LOVE IT. it is amazing, the best smartphone expirence I've ever had. (I've had a droid x and a droid razr, carried an iPod touch for years so I have some iOS time also). The os is amazing.
For everyone that has problem with music or uses iTunes like it do, I'm sorry, its a b***h. But after pulling my hair out for about 3 hours I found a problem.
(Used the WinPhone8 desktop app, had to go into iTunes folder and delete the iTunesLibrary.xml file , this file sometime causes syncing problems for iTunes and other software, restarted iTunes and the desktop app worked like a charm)
People Hub is fun, still prefer the twitter/facebook apps
Overall my expirence with the 822 has been good, after the iTunes hiccup I've loved every minute with this phone. Anyone that is on the edge of buying one I highly recommend it. Ofcourse coming from Android the app selection isn't as big, but the only way it can go is up. The only app I couldn't find in the Windows Store was Pulse (best android app ever) but hopefully one will come someday

I love Pulse too man. What I do as a workaround for now is I just pinned the web app on my start screen. The mobile site works similar to the app (more like a smaller version of the desktop browser app) but--especially with the minimalistic IE browser, it feels like an app

This is the Nokia 822.
Edit: I think I miss understood your question. At home on WiFi, I receive my wife's texts from her iPhone. Here at work (no WiFi) her iPhone and a coworkers iPhone don't alert me. Humm, I'm going to have another coworker that doesn't have an iPhone, text me.

I bought the 822 as a secondary phone to my Nexus, and so far I really like it. I've had it for about a week, and after a few days of adjusting to the whole idea of tiles, it's a lot better than I expected it to be.
The phone itself and the OS being great were a welcome relief. Waiting for the app store to fill up is going to be the trying part of using the phone.

Talked with Verizon earlier. We reset my phone (no need to remove sim card), I've downloaded my apps and all seems to be good. May have just been a glitch. Hopefully the reset fixed it.

glad you guys like it! I just bought mine yesterday. I really like it so far, no reboot problems, no texting problems (that I know of?) and battery life seems pretty solid so far, and should only get better. I actually even am happy with the app store so far, the nokia exclusive for ESPN Fantasy Football is huge for me, even though the season is about over. Nokia music is awesome so far too, I love being able to save a playlist for offline mode
