    I started a petition to try to bring the latest Windows Phone 7 phones onto Verizon Wireless. I hope you all sign the petition because we demand better choices!

    Bring Windows Phone 7 Smartphones to Verizon Wireless! - Petition Bureau

    Mods: We need to put this front and center so we can get the word out to Verizon!

    The only people keeping WP devices from VZN are/is VZN themselves. By all means start a petition hopefully VZN will take notice and do somthing.

    Everything counts. Thanks for the vote, Judge! This petition will be forwarded to the leadership team at VZW so they are aware of our need to push them to bring WP7 to Big Red.

    Looks like something might be on the way http://pocketnow.com/windows-phone/n...cketnow.com%29 sounds like the at&t/NOKIA deal is only for a little while. Then again this is VZW we are talking about.

    That makes sense. I mean if WP really wants to take off and get more sales and market share this is the best way to do it.

    You guys know the nokia 710 is coming to verizon right? Im not happy that we are getting their low end device but its a start. I signed the petition but we simply do not have enough people in our demographic to make an impact. We just have to trust microsoft that they know what they are doing. Also a little teezer, on what I posted on Nokia's FB page.

    I posted to Nokia's FB page: "Your ces announcement was a little disappointing. Where are the phones for people not on ATT?"

    response:
    Nokia: There's no specific information about that just yet. Stay tuned :)

    On the Windows Phone Dev Podcast today, they discussed this. Thurrot makes it sound like Verizon did want the LTE devices, but didn't get them because they had certain demands. And AT&T was more willing to play ball with fewer demands. But AT&T did want an exclusive period.

    And with T-Mobile... they have a 3 month exclusivity period with the 710.

    I think if verizon does only get the 710 since they will be getting it 3 months later than tmo they should price it free on contract if they really want it to sell well.

    I signed this petition, but in order for it really to be noticed by VZW mgmt, it would need tens of thousands of signatures. There's less than 150 on there right now. What can we do to get more signatures?

    I posted this on FB, Twitter and all the major WP sites including the Verizon forums, including this one but the Sprint one got a scoop before my petition (what up wpcentral? :P). We need to put this front and center of the major blogs and forums!

    We need all your help to put this out there! This petition will go only as far as the users let the powers that be know what we want.

    Did you try submitting it as a tip on the front page? They might put it up there if you ask nicely :)

    I did! Pretty please with a cherry on top too!

    Well an update as of 1/18/2012, this petition was forwarded to the leadership team at VZW.

    Thanks for those that signed up! Hopefully we get some feedback!

    Again, I don't mean to be negative, but how do you know it will make it past any of the leadership team's email filters or personal assistants that read mail for them? There's still less than 1000 signatures on the petition. What can we do to make it have the kind of weight needed to make it noticable?

    how do you know it won't make it through those? And 1000 signatures is better than nothing and that's 1000 more possible contracts Verizon could get/lose if they do not carry more wp...
