    Hi guys! So, I've been through quite a rollercoaster ride with phones this past year. Bought the HTC 8X in March 2013, screen cracked in August. I got a 928 for close to nothing, brand new, and that screen cracked as well (I suck). My only option at that point was to get a free iPhone 4 with a trade-in of my cracked 928. I jumped ship and did it. Worst decision I ever made since this thing is slow as **** and I miss WP8 dearly. It's been less than a month and I need to go back! I've always wanted the Lumia 920 (this will be my second Nokia device), but I have a few questions first.

    I understand this phone is relatively old in the Nokia world. How does it fare to the newer devices that have come out, i.e. the 928? I can buy it on Amazon from Nokia, unlocked, for $330. I am willing to spend this much to be happy, and it's better than $400 or $600 for newer models (I'll just sell this POS iPhone anyway). Further, I've never purchased an unlocked phone before; what are the limitations with doing this? Will I face any difficulties in upgrading? Verizon is my carrier...do I simply activate the unlocked phone and I'm "linked back in"? Sorry if I sound silly, the whole unlocked phone thing has always been sort of confusing to me.

    Thanks!

    ***EDIT*** Just read in a thread from only a few days ago and a moderator stated that the 920 will NOT work on Verizon. Well, that blows. What are my options?

    928
    I've already had it and didn't quite like it, it was pretty buggy. I had two, and each had their own sets of issues.
