    If MS killed of Windows Phone and made current devices unusable (not going to happen, but this is a hypothetical situation) in four months what phone/OS would you switcht to (4 months was to put it past BlackBerry OS 10 availability).

    I would probably go iPhone 5. I have had Android as secondary devices recently and it just doesn't do it for me, and after being with Windows Phone since pre-NoDo on an HD7, I'm not wanting to go through the growing pains with BB10, but it is the OS I'd rather have. Still, I think I'd end up with an iPhone 5 unless BB10 grows up really, really quickly.

    If there were no more WP, then it would be BB10. I've never owned a BB, but BB10 looks 'different' and therefore, I'd be interested; however, if there were no BB10 in the equation, then it would be iPhone 5. Android does not interest me at all.

    A part of me has wanted to own a Nokia N8 or N9, so I'd look around for one of those. Or I might even ask my uncle for my old N900 back. And if all else fails, I might have to settle for Android.

    I would probably choose Android. I've never had an Android device, but I do like Linux.

    I would not pick an iPhone, since I am a Windows/Linux user and do not care for anything from Apple.

    I've had BlackBerry in the past, and part of the reason I left was lack of apps. I'm not convinced that BlackBerry will ever have Netflix, which is one of the apps I use regularly.

    Came from iOS, walked away and will never go back to iOS.
    I dislike Android.
    BB will be the only choice.

    (IIRC, Meego was releasing a new OS version?)

    Probably BB10, then Android, and I'd go back to a feature phone before I'd go to an iPhone. :P

    Came from two years of Android 1.6 to 4.1 - no interest in going back
    have iPad - that's enough iOS for me.
    Used BB, but BB10 is new and different.

    That leaves trying MeeGo, something I have always wanted to and BB10 if that does not work.

    BlackBerry - no question. Then Symbian. Then as the last resort, Android.

    I would go back to a dumb phone before I'd get an iPhone.
    My next phone...

    IPhone because I like pretty things. I have a lot of experience with android and I can't stand the disorganized feel of the OS. But then again most people would probably go for android due to rampant piracy.

    I'll always have a soft spot for RIM. So my first choice would be BB10, followed by iOS. I'm still not convinced that Android is best for communication, news and productivity first - something at which BB continues to excel and where WP is starting to shine.

    For sure NOT an IPHONE

    Am coming from BB therefore I would go back to BB because it does look promising at this point of time. IPhone and Android will never see my money. At the same time I will say that I might just pick up a brick if Windows Phone were to go down the drain and call it end for smartphones and me cause its Windows Phone or nothing.

    Android. I know people knock it around here alot but I could do next to anything I wanted with my Android phone. The dev community and their abilities are endless.

    Android. I did the iPhone thing and got bored with it. That OS needs an overhaul.

    Don't forget to thank and like anyone who deserves it!

    I'm going to go crazy and say BB10. I'm really liking the looks of it and my fiancée is an old BB user but switched to the iPhone 4 but hasn't ever liked it so she is switching to it so I'd go that route

    I had forgotten Sailfish. I could probably do Sailfish, since its supposed to be able to run like 90% of android apps with no modification, you don't have the lack of app growing pains AND its not Android. So, it would either be Sailfish or iPhone 5

    Me personally I would go with the Iphone. After using that and blackberries it's the most seamless next step. I dont trust Android and I'm not going to go from one dead platform to another dying platform (Blackberry), because I'll be in the same predicament again.

    Android or Sailfish for me, not going back to IOS, I have seen the light

    I might stop using smartphones, even mobile phones. Because then I would have lost hope in humanity and mankind.

    I'd take a look at where Nokia goes. I've been really happy with my 900 and 920.
