    Hi there

    James Pearce / jp_hero here. I'm from the UK. I use an HTC 8X and a Nokia Lumia 620. Oh and a Surface RT.

    Windows Phone ftw?

    I wish there was a WP8 phablet. Discuss.

    I also wish the Wordpress app didn't suck.

    Hello, My Name is Chas, I live in the US, Pennsylvania. I have not formally introduced myself sinced I joined the WPCentral forums back in February. My story is that I have owned all eco systems (iPhone, Android, RIM) and now finally WP8. I was an Android user with the Motorola Atrix and before that the iPhone 3G. I have been eyeing the Nokia 920 since the launch back in the fall, but wasn't out of contract couldn't upgrade (using ATT). For Christmas I got my daughter a red Nokia 920 since it really appealed to her. She really loved it! Since she got it I was able to play around much more closely without hogging up the store models. Have to tell you, that WP8 was such a refreshing UI! it appealed to me aesthetically. It is elegant, and easy to navigate, I fell in love! (as much as a human being can love an object) SO new contract upgrade ended up with a Yellow Nokia 920 and since then have not looked back. iOS looks dated. Android - can get too confusing with customization and apps don't all play together and can slow your phone down and crash often as I found out with my Atrix. Strange, but going to the WP8 ecosystem felt kind of back "home" again and very comfortable. Well done MS! and especially Nokia for coming up big again with this. I had once own an old TDMA/Digital Nokia 5120? That's going way back in cellphone history. So daughter and I have 920's while wife carries the iPhone 4s. I wont force her to change since she likes the size and barely uses any of her phone functionality, teen daughter feels strange that we are phone twins, but love that we can communicate easily between phones. Daughter has also recruited few of her friends to get 920's for their next phone.

    I'm Joshua, I'm 24, and I love my Verizon 8x! It was my Christmas present, and it bricked within ten minutes of use! It was hard waiting until the next day to replace it, but when I did, it was worth the wait! Best phone I've ever had.

    Hello, my name is Norman aka PacificNormWest. I live in Seattle and have been a fan of Microsoft since 2012. When I saw the "Metro" UI, which I call MetMod, I fell in design love with it. I loved it enough to be a Microsoft Gay for Seattle Pride last year, hence the colorful photograph. The tongue and cheek factor is off the charts! Anyhow, I ditched my iPhone 4 (after having owned a 3 and 3GS), for a Lumia 900 last year. As of this typing, I'm a proud owner of the 920 and a Surface RT. This year, I'll expand my Microsoft family with the Xbox Infinity and if it's out by then, Surface Pro 2.0. Oh, and I love SkyDrive! I Tweet about all sorts of things, including WP/Surface/Microsoft stuff. Follow me and I'll follow you back. Good Day!

    I'm Jack (surprising...I know). I am a 34 yr old Sr. IT Engineer. I am married to my high school sweetheart, we now have 2 awesome kids (2.5 yr old boy and my 6 month old princess).

    Tech has been my passion for years. Video Gaming used to be a passion..until about 2.5 years ago, now most of my focus is on my kids and I love it (but man do I miss gaming sometimes).

    Mobile tech is a great hobby for me as I can work it around my work and family life.
    Nice ..... same story for me as well.... but i just have a 6 year old princess....

    Hi, I'm Justin from Dallas. I was a long time Android user, from Nexus One on up; but I'm also a .NET developer that wanted to get into app development so I switched to a HTC 8X. Overall I'm happy with WP8 and have since reloaded my laptop with Win 8 and just bought a Surface RT so I went all in on the ecosystem, the tight integration between the three works really well.

    Hi, i'm grunt0300. Some of you may have noticed me on other forums. Just checking in to learn about Windows phones. I've used all platforms in the past, and currently, i'm using a "rooted" SGSIII. It really is fast on 4.2.2, however, i'm open to anything new that gets me my texts and emails faster, and has a faster or better browser. I do not knock other people's choices, so please don't knock mine. I've had some bad experiences on the CrackBerry forums.

    OK, this is my first post on here. I'm Matt (obviously), 26 years old from Somerset, although this year I start my final year of uni in South Wales. I'm a huge cricket, hockey (field) and football (soccer) fan, and I also enjoy badminton and squash. In my spare time - which I have too much of - you'll find me playing one of my favourite sports, or coaching them. When it's too late to do that, I'll be on my PS3 or chatting with my Ecuadorian girlfriend, who I'm planning to propose to this summer. As for my phone, which is what this forum is about, I have a Nokia Lumia 520 on GiffGaff. My previous phone was also a Nokia, but it was 4 or 5 years old and needed to be replaced. I wanted a phone that I could also use for music, thus negating the need to have a mobile and an Ipod. I chose a Windows 8 phone because my one of my brothers has one and he raved about it, I tried it and liked it. I also thought about getting a Samsung Galaxy Ace but I chose W8 instead.

    As for why I signed up to the forum, well to be honest I don't do chat forums that much. The reason for coming on here was because I like having somewhere to come to for advice about my phone, and the occasional tech/phone related rant. I'm not out to discuss politics, moan about contemporary art and music or complain about my family.

    So, it's good to be here and I hope to get some insight out of it :)

    First complaint...it's total crud that I can't have a custom text tone :(

    Juha Kernen here, from Finland.

    I had an old Nokia 6151 that was working just fine and I always liked the phone. Then I saw an ad for Lumia 800 and it was 100€ off. So I got one. So far, I'm liking this one quite a bit. I wish there were some additional settings for sound volume etc. but not bad.
