    60% ? What company do you work for ? The max I have seen Verizon give out is a 25% discount on bills (I have 24% off) and there was a forum on this on another site and no one else got more than 25%...
    I was thinking the same thing.

    So it can get a whopping 1-2 weeks before the GS4 comes out? That would be lame. Also, I don't want to wait that long.

    I work for Verizon and get 50% so I'm gonna call you out on this one.

    Also, the 822 was a disappointment reliability-wise. It sold like crazy though.

    Interesting - what kind of reliability issues are you aware of?

    I get a 60% discount through my employer with VZW off every bill. That, and Nokia needs to release their phones to more carriers ASAP.

    No kidding! How did I miss this? I want to say I get 20% off, but don't remember for sure. That's based on an employer I left in 2010 - I should check to see if they have a better rate at my new employer...

    To clarify, my company reimburses its traveling employees $50 for their cell phone bills per month in addition to the VZW discount. This reimbursement of course applies to any carrier we choose but the generous discount only is through VZW.

    I have an 822. Battery life was horrible at one point, reset my phone and didn't install a few suspect apps and battery life is good now. Never had any issues with reboots. My biggest complaint about the 822 is the camera. Worst camera I've had in years. Looking forward to the 928. It will be mine on day 1.

    I predict announce 4/25/13, availability 5/2/13.

    If this phone does not come out by 5/9/13 latest I am going to be supremely PO'd. Not to mention it would be a huge strategic blunder given the GS4 release date.

    Agreed.....Nokia needs to have it's time in the sun too...find it hard to believe that Verizon has held off releasing the phone to give the Z10 more time when it's closing in on 6 weeks (?) now ? Maybe the late release on the 928 is in fact due to ATT exclusivity as HonestAbe has said. I just hope that they launch all of the rumored colors at once. I want a RED one.

    There's also a rumor that they're waiting for GDR2 to pass final testing. That way they can ship the 928 with the latest software and firmware. I would personally be happy with this reasoning since it would save us having to wait for Verizon to test and get it out to us later on. However, I do think holding the phone back hurts it's overall chances of higher sales.

    The Pantech Perception was announced yesterday and is coming out the 25th (its actually a really slick phone too). Things can get done pretty damn fast once the stars allign.

    Yeah, no kidding... I don't know of one, but I certainly won't say it can't happen. This phone will be a week later, so they can build the desire for it, but no way will it be two weeks to kill that desire. I think this is a clue:

    This wait is killing me. If I had been more impressed with the z10 I would have considered it. Played around with it yesterday and thought it looked cheap. Interface didn't do anything for me either. I really hope they end this waiting soon!

    Question: If it is released on 4/25, does that mean midnight the night of the 24th (tonight)? If so, which time zone? I want to set my alarm. ;-)
