    Decided I'm going to spring for the 822 after work today. Anyone want to change my mind and convince me to keep waiting for the 928?

    I was in your shoes as well, my upgrade has been up since January and I was just thinking of getting the 822. But I decided to just wait.

    Just wait a little longer!

    I've been off contract since AUGUST. I have an upgrade to burn. My Trophy is still working like a champ, but the charging port doesn't work anymore. I am going to wait till the end of the week, and if I do't hear SOMETHING, I'm getting an iPhone. :-(

    Several times over the past couple of weeks I almost switched to AT&T for the 920 but I'm holding out a little longer. I just hope it's worth the wait.

    Really? An iPhone? Isn't that like the old saying "cutting off your nose to spite your face"? Respectfully,and as someone who works with iOS devices and the mac OS X environment every day, don't get an iPhone.
    BTW, how are you off contract since August with a Trophy? Didn't that come out in May of 2011?

    I'd wait. I think most sources are agreeing that it's coming out this month. I could upgrade since January, but decided to wait to save money, and because I heard of the laser. Every month I've thought about just upgrading anyways, but it should be here soon. I'm still getting by with a glitchy and slow Kin Onem. Funny thing is if the 928 doesn't come with a microSD, I'll probably go for the 822 anyways.

    Almost all the rumors point to a late April release so it's worth waiting. If Verizon starts delaying things then I would say go with the 822.

    Because I can manage with my phone. Why buy another phone off ebay weeks before buying one on contract from Verizon?

    $200 on ebay you say? I may get one to hold me over. I've never bought a phone from ebay before. Will this mess with my upgrade at all or anything? I'm on a family plan and I have unlimited data currently.

    If you buy from eBay it will not affect your upgrade or anything! You would still be available for an upgrade at your usual time.

    I paid full retail at a Verizon store for my 822. The only time I regret it is when I open up Xbox Music because it massively sucks compared to Zune, but that would be the case on any WP8, so yeah I'm happy with my 822 and the fact that I still have unlimited data. If I buy a 928, I'd do the same thing, because unlimited data is worth more to me than the $200 discount I'd get on a 928.

    I would just wait at this point. If its not out by the end of the month go with a 822 from eBay.

    Granted a stay of execution. Went to the VZW store and they had sold out of all of their 822's over the weekend. Have to wait until the 6th for more to come in.

    I would agree with that since using the data sense I am constantly over 2GB of data not including my wifi

    Man, I can't wait anymore. I want to get the WP8 but not until T-Mobile can figure out how to get me a decently working HD7.5 replacement (that I would then switch over to 7.8). On #6 in 1 1/2 years. Still, I love the phone, and it would be great to have as a backup. I like the minimalist style. I really want the charcoal and black tiles though (I heard its not very easy compared to my bro's HD2). And the power up/power down times is way better than anything years beyond it. If I had 7.8, I bet I could get every tile on without needing to scroll. My phone's a phone. I don't need a million apps. I need my dedicated camera button. I hope the WP8 blows me away.

    Now - does verizon offer any kind of return policy on phones if you dont like the 822?
    Verizon let's you return a phone within the first 2 weeks. After that you're stuck with it.

    I did the same a couple months ago. Got a very slightly used Lumia 822 for $200 on E-bay. The down side is that I find the 822 more than adequate for the things I use a phone for, so I may just hang on to it. I guess something may come out indicating the 928 is really that much better, but the 822 has quelled my urge for a new phone for now. I'm not sure I would get an 822 to "hold you over" given the rumors that April is going to be the month the 928 is released.

    I got my Trophy through the Microsoft Store when they were having their "Are you Faster than a Windows Phone" promo. It was free.

    Don't forget the restocking fee. I think they can charge you up to $50.

    I'm tired of WAITING. I need a solution NOW. My Trophy is starting to fail. It's not a matter of me wanting to wait for the latest and greatest, I NEED a solution. I'm also an emergency first responder so having a reliable communications tool is vital. Right now I am hobbling along. I don't want to keep doing that. If I am going to get something, I want to get something that has a more mature ecosystem. I'm tired of being the red-headed step child of the app world. I would be willing to trade some of that for the 928, but if I am going to get something that isn't the 928, I'd be willing to trade for a device that has the maturity of the Apple ecosystem. I'm no Apple fan, but it just seems to be more mature.

    I'm kinda surprised that someone who has an iphone and a MAC would be pushing against that integration.

    Right now, I've figured out a system to hobble along a little longer. Hopefully I can keep it going till at least we have SOME info on when it is coming. Then I can make a decision.

    What is more mature about the iOS ecosystem to the Windows one? Other then non-essential apps like instagram. What does iOS have that Windows Phone doesn't? Just curious...
