    I'm not new in WP community or Nokia phones, in fact I'm Nokia addict. And so happy they adopted WP OS and MSFT acquisition of Nokia devices division, 'cause I am a Windows user too... Said that I would like to share what I think is a mayor factor in the slow growth of WP in US market, in this two days I read two articles talking about it and in both they mention what I think MSFT has to in some way be aware and that is that in all retail stores in which WP devices are sold the sell-associates act like if they own the store, always keeping away potential new users from buying WP devices and getting them into their own preferences, like IOS or Android, and not letting them giving a try to the new market... This is in my opinion a big problem for MSFT to overcome.

    Hi and welcome. A lot of us share your opinion. Hopefully things will improve once we start seeing more devices, not only from Nokia/Microsoft Mobile, but also from various OEMs.

    Welcome to WPCentral! Yes, many of us share the same disgust with the treatment of WP in stores. We keep hoping for change. I did notice that right after the HTC announcement about the One M8 for Windows Phone Verizon's facebook account posted an ad for the phone. That caught me by surprise. Hopefully it will continue.

    Yeah, I agree. The primary reason behind Windows Phone not having many users is because not a lot use Windows Phone. Of course, there are other factors, but such is life.

    Oh, and welcome to the forums as well!
