    What other killer feature would there be, they can't make a total radical change atm until the next iteration of their flagship phone.
    I can't really think of any killer features they could add to what they have already implemented. A notification light would be cool. The separate volume control thing that people were complaining about would be nice. Other than that, I can't think of anything.

    Separate volume control is tied to WP8 - I don't even think Nokia could write an app to change that. I'm hoping MS hears the whole lot of us ******* and moaning about that and changes it in Blue. I'd love to see the notification light tied to the wireless charging dock using NFC - use that for something, guys!

    I'm definitely waiting for this. However, Verizon's cheapest plan is $110/month. Right now I'm paying $68 on AT&T. Verizon is a total ripoff.

    There's cheaper plans, although you lose the sole reason for being on Verizon in the first place since you can't use hardly any data.

    That's my point. The cheapest data plan on Verizon is $100 while AT&T is $60. They're both LTE in Seattle.

    Cheapest is 100? Really, the shared plans are actually fairly affordable. With 2 smart phones and 4 GB is the same price as unlimited on sprint (unlimited slow data is hardly unlimited if I don't want to use now is it?). We average 400 MB now, figure we'll get over 2 GB with LTE and better coverage.

    We pay $190 for our shared VZW 2GB LTE plan. Not cheap, but absolutely worth the jump from Sprint. Shoot, just being able to make/receive phone calls inside stores like Walmart is worth it.

    yah, walking in Meijer and going to no bars is getting old. I figure we'll be in the 180 range with insurance.

    Verizon is great if you add yourself to a family plan. I pay $40 a month for unlimited text and voice with 2gb data.

    How many devices? We have two smartphones, and the same data, and ours is $143. Check with your employer to see if you get a discount. I think mine was either 20 or 25%

    The new locked down data plans scare me. My month just started over a couple days ago and I already burned through 1.5gb. I doubt I could share data with anyone.

    No that's 2gb for myself. Idk how it works but everybody has their own data, we just share unlimited minutes and texts. Something weird like that.

    That's with 3 devices plus insurance on them and visual voicemail for mine (two Lumia 822s and an iPhone 5). The 822 I got for my mom to introduce her to smartphones is having the gear+lightning bolt issue regularly though, plus the volume issue, so she'll have to take it in and probably have it swapped. =\

    Not sure how credible this person is (as with anyone on a forum) but an article from The Motley Fool ' Smartphone Wars: The Battle for Third Place Has Gotten Interesting' had an interesting comment by jeffreber44: April 18th Nokia begins to rule the world .Smartphone Wars: The Battle for Third Place Has Gotten Interesting (BBRY, GOOG, INTC, NOK)

    Could April 18th be the Lumia 928 or this 'solar' powered phone we have been hearing about?
    I have been reading and waiting and reading and waiting everyone's thoughts on this supposed awesome phone (the 928 that is). I have a 3 or 4 yr old Samsung Rogue and been month to month since 2010 so as you can imagine, I am ready to jump into the smartphone world. I won't know how to act with such a sophisticated device but of course the main issue will be how expensive the share everything plans are and how much data would two people sharing 2GB really use? I suppose time will tell on all these questions.

    @wxgrl23: As much as i would like to see something in that comment, could it be that they are referring to the Q1 2013 results that will be released that day?

    As soon as I posted my comment, I thought of that also. And you are probably correct as it seems odd to me to announce a release date on a Thursday.

    Not odd for Verizon. They always announce new phones & release on Thursdays.
