    Hi all, I'd like to introduce myself, I'm a BlackBerry person (BGK on Crackberry) who has finally read the writing on the wall (Android is not for me) and decided on moving to a Windows phone, most likely the Lumia 950 or 950XL. I'm busy reading what people have to say about the Lumia and since I have an HP Envy laptop with Windows 10, I thought I'd stick with it for my new cellphone as well. Looking forward to learning lots about these very cool phones. Cheers

    Welcome aboard!

    Always nice to see new people around here and you seem to have been an active member of other parts of Mobile Nations so you'll fit right in. :)


    You will be happy with either one of the 950-family.

    Welcome aboard! Don't have the 950 series, I'm on a 1520. If I was getting a new one, I'd probably get the 950XL. Both seem like great phones.

    I've also used 520 and 530. My experience with Lumias and WP has been that no matter the range (low to high), they all run well.

    Heya BGK, nice to have you over here "window shopping."

    Some ex-BB peeps set up an advice thread here: http://forums.windowscentral.com/bla...here-help.html

    If you want to just get your feet wet real quick and are in the US, check out the $30 Lumia GoPhone at Walmart.com. You could set it up on WiFi and as long as you don't have a SIM in (remove the GoPhone SIM before first boot) you can get it unlocked within 3 days at https://www.att.com/deviceunlock/#/


    Put the Insider App on there and go for the Release Preview. Very stable way to get Windows 10 Mobile so you can start evaluating the OS.


    :cheers:

    Welcome to the forums, BGK. You'll find lots of help and answers here about Windows 10 Mobile.

    Check out the articles on the HP Elite X3 phone. It's not on the market yet, but it looks to be pretty awesome. I'm kind of waiting on something like that.

    HP Envy laptop with Windows 10,
    Welcome, BGK! I agree with Rhapdog. An Hp Elite x3 might be the perfect compliment for your HP Envy laptop.

    By the way, what does the name "BGK" mean?

    Just my initials, Bonnie is my first name, I made the mistake years ago on crackberry when I joined and just quickly put my initials in and have regretted it since lol. When I joined with windows central, I thought I'd corrected that but it grabbed info and I'm still BGK here too.

    Heya BGK, welcome to the darkseid

    So imma agreeing with RumoredNow and rhapdog.. The X3 is a sweet phone and would compliment your laptop, but if you simply want to test out WP fist before fully committing, that GoPhone is the way to go

    Thank you very much, my initials are a bit too like another set of initials on CB and from what I gathered he was not so popular 😄

    Hi BGK! Like you, I'm new to Win phone from BB. Lots of nice folks around here, so I have no doubt you'll become comfortable pretty quickly here.
    For what it's worth, I've discovered Win 10 is a lot like BB 10, so it's helped me with the transition!
