    Does the lack of apps frustrate you guys? I came from a non-smartphone and it still gets to me.

    If you don't even know what you didn't have to begin with, how do you know you are missing anything?

    I have an ipod. I'm missing a lot.
    Plus it's not like I don't have friends with iphones, I hear them or see them play words with friends, draw something, etc.

    came from a jailbroken iPhone 3GS, planned on getting the 4S but an AT&T rep had a Lumia on his person and allowed me to play with the device, I immediately pre-ordered it.

    The only apps I miss are:
    Flux
    biteSMS / iMessages
    Chase Mobile App (get on it chase!)

    Good iPhone convert headcount. What made you decide to take the leap?

    I felt the iPhone interface was too simplistic and stale for my liking.
    And that apps...yes, there are TONS of them, but I'd say 95% are of little to no value. Sometimes too much choice is a bad thing...the good stuff easily gets lost in the clutter.

    And lastly, I hate the iTunes store/system with a passion. Glad to be over and done with it.

    Isn't there a lot of alternatives to instagram? I know for Nokia users we have access to Creative Studio. For other manufacturers they generally has their own equivalent as well. Then there's also Fhotoroom which is free and I find pretty powerful. I've never used instagram, but from everything I've seen it seems like the appeal is the ease to share and effects you can apply.
    Appwise, coming from iOS in an iPod Touch, I'm not really missing any apps, usually there's some alternative. Sure the actual app might be better (for me it's Micromedix and ePocrates, but I can use MPR.specific games is also something). That said there isn't anything to cause me to think, "wow wish Windows Phone had that app," as there's, as I stated, an alternative for just about everything.

    Came from iPhone 4 (had iPhone since the original) and am liking my Lumia more each day.

    There are certainly far fewer apps. I was original pretty let down by the selection. But the past 2 days going through the store I've had success finding enough. I was very happy to find a todo app that has the same UI as my favorite iOS to-do/list app clear. Also found my bill tracker and was able to just login and sync.

    I'm still not settled on a twitter client. What does everyone else use? Most important feature is that it must remember my spot in the timeline which few seem to be able to do.

    The only app I am really missing is Sirius XM radio.

    I came over from the iPhone 4 and glad I did. I got the iPhone 4 the week it came out and I was just tired of the tiny screen and the OS is pretty boring. Also, yeah it has a ton of apps but I only used maybe 5 and most just took up space.

    It was a pretty drastic move for me since I am pretty much all apple, macbook pro, apple tv and even my router is a made by apple.

    The only things I do miss is that my iPhone was the 32gb version and the syncing with iTunes was better and headphones with remotes dont work with the lumia.

    Came from an iPhone 4s. Glad I did. Now, my wife seems interested in the Nokia Lumia 900 (white) too as we loved Nokia phones before.

    I had my IPhone 3G for almost 3 years, I almost upgraded to the 4 but when I heard people were having trouble with the signal, I held off. Then the rumors started about the upcoming IPhone 5 with a bigger screen etc. so I wait for that. Instead apple comes out with the 4S. Apple has figured out that they can come out with a new phone with minimal hardware upgrades over last years model and people will still buy it. Genius. In the end my 3G was so slow that if I turned the phone to landscape mode I would have to wait a full 30 seconds for the phone to realize it and turn the screen.

    My biggest complaint with my IPhone was the small screen size. I don't care about apps, I just want a phone that works. I have all the same apps on my Nokia or at least one comparable. I love the feel of the Nokia in my hand and I can lost staring into the deep blacks of the screen. I did screw up and bought an anti-glare screen protector which makes the black look a little gray in direct light. So far, I'm really happy with my purchase other than a couple of battery issues which seems to be fixed with the update.

    Rowi remembers your spot, then notifies you of "50 new tweets" (or 20, or whatever you set it for). you scroll up to see those, and if you want to see any in between the last you viewed and the 50 new you click the "load previous" (or whatever it says)
