    I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed, but the one ad with the pig where he's in a football stadium shows him accessing Geico on a WP8.

    I couldn't make out any branding as to maker, but it definitely was a WP8.

    Has anyone else seen WPs show up in ads on TV or anything?

    EDIT: here's the ad

    It shows up at a 7 second mark.

    That's cool. I don't recognize which device it is though.

    I saw this last week. I looked up Geico in the store but nothing came up... false advertisement. And that looks like the HTC 8x
    Also, I saw a commercial for Allstate, I think it was, where this guy was using a Windows Phone to make a claim..and there's no Allstate app either. lmao

    Yep, that's a black HTC 8X. Never heard of Geico, but poor of them to do this, because as HM02 says above, there's no Geico app it seems on WP.

    I saw this commercial again and oddly the phone now no longer has the windows logo on it.

    I thought I was just seeing things. I noticed that as well. I wonder if something happened.

    Well spotted, it looks like they've flipped the speaker around, to be on the bottom, and scrubbed out the buttons

    Yeah, I just saw the Allstate commercial and a teenager was using a black Lumia 920 while his mother was using the HTC One taking pictures for a claim. The teenager only talked about the app whereas the mother was using it while he talked. It made him appear clueless. I kinda wish he had been using an iPhone.
