    Just took a look at the press pdf and it states polycarbonate, so just thinner I guess?

    whats really funny this time is that Nokia has announced and will release a phone in a shorter time that Samsung with the S4 (for verizon) and technically in a shorter time than any other S4 for other other carrier too... one week lag....
    it's Verizon marketing. They didn't get what they wanted from Samsung so they will try everything not to sale it

    Thanks TC for all of the informative and accurate posts ! You probably stated this before but what is the full retail price of the phone ? I was in a chat session with a Verizon rep and it sounded like it might be hit or miss that stores actually have this in stock next Thursday. I am going on vacation on Friday and would love to have my new 928 in hand. I live in a relatively rural area but am traveling to Dallas for vacation. Do you know if the stores will have stock starting Thursday ?

    phone is going for $99 you should thank Nokia get a white one show it off. Plus I think Nokia will give you a gift card too.

    I can't remember correctly but I believe it's 499.99. All corporate stores will have them in stock however limited quantity. You can purchase it online and pick it up at the store as well

    Verizon rep said that none of the retail stores in Texas have the in-store pick-up option from the website which I found strange.

    Isn't the 822 polycarbonate? The white version has a glossy finish.

    unfortunately it isn't available in Texas right now. I have checked and most stores in Dallas area will have them in stock. You can call cs and have them locate one in stock and they can call the store for you to hold the phone

    That's fine. I've had the best luck keeping my unlimited and free text messaging by ordering past phones with CS. I can wait another day or two for it to ship.

    As soon as the phone goes live on the web you can call and order it. Usually any order placed before 1pm will ship out the same day so you should get it on Friday.

    If I'm not mistaken, I don't believe Verizon is stocking the Galaxy S4, so this wouldn't effect Lumia 928 sales once so ever.

    at least didn't feel like my 920 or 822. So I'm assuming it isn't polycarbonate
    You can't really tell what type of plastic it is by touch, there are many different finishes and densities available for PC and ABS.

    It's polycarbonate. I can't find which site I read it on earlier, but I did read earlier that it was polycarbonate.

    So tc, what is the best way to get this phone on Thursday? I live in San Diego and have tons of Verizon stores around me and also a Microsoft Store. What would be my best bet? Order online, call, or..?? I want to pay full retail.

    It's in the press kit:

    "Exceptionally durable uni-body injection molded design.

    The lightweight polycarbonate material is pure color

    throughout, so there is no risk of the color flaking or

    chipping like with painted plastic.
    "

    No problem, thank you for the info. Do you know if the black is matte and white is glossy like on the 920?

    The Lumia 928 at the $99 price is really competitive, and I'm sure Nokia made sure it was at this price to compete against all the Androids on Verizon. Personally, if it was $199, I would be thinking of waiting for other sellers to being down the price, but this way I can just get it from Verizon. I'll probably order online, since many times they rebate/discount is applied instantly, rather than having to pay $150 at the store and wait for the rebate (in form of a visa card I think). I'll be upgrading at least two phones on my family plan to the Lumia 928, can't wait until next week!
