    Haven't picked mine up yet, because they didn't have red in store, but will pick mine up from FedEx in a few hours. I can't sleep. Lol.

    I am already satisfied. I have a 900 and played with the 920 in store.

    Are you the previous wp owner? Was thinking if coming from other platform may have more distinct requirement and hence might complain more.:P

    Just picked mine up about 2 hours ago. So far I like it. Coming from an HTC Titan so overall this Nokia experience will be new. I'm missing some of my favorite apps from WP7 (Beem, Adobe Reader) but other than that good. The vibration is weird but I don't care about how it sounds I like how it feels, and I got the phone in White. I thought you could get black tiles with the white phone?

    I really hope Good takes care of this soon - I was close to buying on the expectation that Good's WP7 app would work, but fortunately somebody replied and corrected me. MSFT really needs to lean on Good to get that app out!

    Enterprise email. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is increasingly popular in the enterprise (companies), but the basic security in iOS, Android and Windows Phone isn't sufficient. Good creates a secure platform that, as I understand it, essentially isolates the email functionality that it brings from the rest of the operating system, creating a truly secure email platform. The app doesn't work on its own - you need your company to be running it server side as well (plus you need to pay extra $$ to your carrier for the "enterprise" data package). See the following link if you actually care...

    Love it. The display really shines in the sun. Easily the best phone display I've ever seen.

    Thanks for the information. I am thinking with msoffice in wp and bringing msoffice to other platform soon. I am thinking the future is still with outlook & msoffice most likely.

    Honestly, I can see how people who previous owned WP devices like WP 8 a lot. Even if you switched from iOS, you'll probably really like it. However, if you, like me, came over from Android, it may be a different situation. I bought the Lumia because it's the only LTE device available here for the launch of the new 4G network in December.

    For me, it's the most schizophrenic device I've ever seen:

    - great (even excellent) hardware
    - the best camera I've ever seen in a mobile phone
    - excellent screen.
    - heavy. I complained about this in other threads, but now I've gotten used to the weight and I actually like the heft.

    However:

    - I've been feeling like I'm wearing a straight-jacket ever since I started using WP8. What this OS does, it does well. However, it does VERY LITTLE. Except for moving colorful little blocks, I can't customize it whatsoever. I just fail to see what Microsoft mean by "personalization" in this context. Having the Whatsapp icon in the top right rather than in the bottom left corner isn't exactly my idea of a "personal" homescreen.

    I'm not one of those Android users who installs custom ROMs etc, but after installing 20 apps on the Lumia, the whole device is a mess. The homescreen is a mess, and don't even get me started on the apps list.

    So yes, I'll be selling mine, even though that means that I'll lose LTE functionality. I'll definitely check out WP8 again in a year or so - perhaps by then, Microsoft has found a way to organize apps on the OS and maybe they'll also have introduced a notification system and VPN by then.

    I know that this is going to strike a nerve with you guys - but I just don't see how Microsoft is going to gain market-share with the OS as it presents itself right now. I have the feeling that a year from now, Nokia will be gone (or will have been eaten by Samsung, HTC, or even Microsoft itself) and WP8 will still be at 0.5% market-share.

    Not everyone shares your opinion though. Just because you prefer android doesn't mean everyone else will. I'm an android user and I can't wait to get the L920. While you think the WP8 homescreen is a mess, I think the android one is - widgets, icons of all different shapes and sizes says messy to me. I don't see what's wrong with the app launcher either. I've flashed countless ROMs and have never been satisfied with how my phone works and looks. There are nice things you can do with an android that you can't with WP8, but for an OS that just 'works' it is great. Power android users will never be happy with WP8. Just going from the hype around these phones I can't see how you can say that WP8 and Nokia won't be improving on their market share.

    ....Just admit that you don't know how to customize your home screen. We're willing to help, you know ;)

    I sure hope not everybody shares my opinion - competition will do Google and Apple good.
    I was really looking forward to getting the L920 as well. Have you ever used a WP8 phone before? I had no idea about WP, so I didn't have any idea what I was buying.

    I don't think there's such a thing as the "ideal phone" - but there are some that are closer and others that are further away from being "ideal". I'd have to say, WP8 goes in the latter category. Again, the hardware is awesome.

    As for the hype: it was exactly the same with WP7 and yet nobody bought the hardware after an intial phase of general enthusiasm. I just know that here in Switzerland, the phones don't sell at all. The 8X is in stock everywhere and on our leading auction platform, there are lots and lots of 8X just two days after they became generally available. Prices went down 100-150 bucks already (CHF vs. USD is 1:1).

    If I can do more than moving around tiles and adjusting their sizes and information content, please let me know - I'm very interested (and I mean that).

    I have to say in such a short time I am very disappointed with Windows Phone. I think hardware wise the Nokia is great! I like the feel in my hand and I love how the weight makes if feel like a solid phone. Unfortunately where it falls short is not the blame of Nokia but Microsoft. I was willing to give up things when I switched from Android. I know the app market was not the same and I was OK. The music management on the phone sucked but I could live with it because I liked the phone. I could live without a removable battery or a notification light. What I can not live without is a good browser. IE is horrible!! If I can not have the apps I need then I need a good browser to compensate. While shopping at Best Buy today I jumped on the app for them which is junk. OK No problem, I will jump on their website. The IE on my phone is not capable of handling the navigation properly of the tabs on that site and I was unable to browse for the info I needed. I was willing to give up a lot for Windows phone but I am drawing the line. I love the phone but it is going back in the morning. I can not have a smartphone that is dumb!

    I love everything, but wish the screen produced deeper blacks. I also wish AT&T & Nokia would have left their logos off the device. Coming from the clean face of the Dell Venue Pro, I find them distracting.

    I also wish it was available in grey.

    Again, I have to say, it sounds really weird that someone's purchasing decision rested solely on a feature (in your case, IE).

    Care to elaborate on your problem? Which site were you trying to navigate? I've tried out IE 9 on a Lumia 900 (which is very similar to IE 10) and I haven't had any problems.
