    that's correct but basic phones on Share Everything are $30 per month
    Yeah I just realized this isn't going to work for me since I'm not on a family share plan.

    I pay $66 a month for 450 minutes, 2000 text, and unlimited data. If I switched to the family share plan (which I think I need to be on to get the $9.99 a month basic phone line you were talking about), the lowest price I'd be looking at monthly would be $90+, which doesn't make it worth it. And as you said, Share Everything at $30 more per month is even worse.

    Only option for me is to pay full retail. Oh well, worth it for the unlimited data. Really worth it if I can figure out how to keep my free 2000 text messages a month :)

    Anyway, thanks for the reply.

    i thought all microsoft employees were supposed to get L920? you werent there yet that time? =)
    Yes, there was a cutoff date for that, and I started as a full time employee after that date. I was a vendor there for almost 4 years before converting to full time.

    I only got my 41 a month 2 year contract in November and as you can only get maybe 200 for the 920, probably won't be getting it

    So yesterday I stopped in the Verizon store to order the Lumia 928. The rep had no idea what I was talking about but looked it up and verified that it was indeed coming on the 16th. I went with the black model. Getting a cover, screen protector, wireless charger as well. After my iPhone trade in and the mail in rebate I don't have to pay anything. He didn't see anything regarding the Microsoft store credit of $25 though. He said it should be available for me to pick up either Thursday or Friday.

    I like how Verizon is supposedly the best carrier yet you always hear stories how clueless the store reps are.

    They're commissionable sales people. Knowing about phones does not build their paycheck.

    Also, I can confirm the $25 credit. Any rep who opens the intranet can find that info no problem if they put a tiny bit of effort into it.

    That almost sounds like a pre-order. Can anyone just pop into a coprporate Verizon store and order the phone before Thursday ?

    I actually change my answer. I will get the 928 IF there is no catwalk with equal or better camera and thinner body on Verizon.

    Catwalk will not be announced for Verizon. If I am wrong I will follow hopmedic's lead and force myself to eat a ribeye!

    Contract is up in late June, as soon as I can come up with money for the switch for both me and the wife, I will be moving to VZ and getting this phone. Hope to have colors by then, but if not, then a black one for me. White is not to my taste. Cyan would be nice though.

    Yeah I feel the same way... but just in case there isn't another Lumia phone for Verizon. If 928 is the only one, I'll get it hands down!

    I've been a big Nokia fan but haven't owned one since...

    lol

    My venerable Trophy is on its last legs. The micro-USB port no longer works. Battery only lasts about 3 hours. I am GETTING THIS PHONE ON THURSDAY!

    I'll be getting the black one and will look to personalize it with cases. I would prefer no case and straight red, but I can't wait any more. I ALMOST bought an iPhone5 while I was waiting, but was able to keep the faith long enough.

    Thursday can't come fast enough!!!

    Thinking about leaving Sprint to get the L928. It's gonna cost me more every month to be on Verizon, but with no release date for a WP8 device on Sprint and no Lumia's coming anyways, I am sorely tempted.

    I don't want to lose the unlimited data on Sprint, but since I can barely pull down data on their slooooowwwww network anyways.....

    I'm switching to verizon from sprint with no hesitation. The 2GB shared plan (2lines) is actually a little cheaper then what im paying for 2 lines of unlimited on sprint. In the 4 years i've been with sprint ive never gone over .75 GB combined on both my lines. Unlimited has a nice ring to it, but realistically I'll never use enough data to make it worth it. If sprint announces they are getting the HTC One but with windows phone before Thursday is the only way i would stay with sprint.

    Is it the 16th yet?

    Just sent the purchase order to my CFO for approval. My iBore 4, which was a hand-me-down from the previous IT Manager, was up for renewal last month. I've been waiting for this phone forever. I almost switched to AT&T (but the company pays the bill so I would have had to eat the phone bill), almost bit for the 822 and almost switched to a Note.

    For a while the company wanted a Windows Phone to test our SharePoint environment with and I selflessly *ahem* volunteered to be the guinea pig. :) Too bad Verizon doesn't have the damn thing on their website for purchase yet. Well, maybe tomorrow!

    I am buying one, Day one. My trophy died last Fall, and the Droid that I had been using in the mean time (Gen 1 Moto Droid! *ouch) just died over the weekend. So I am phoneless until this thing comes. Anyone know when we will be able to order? Is it 12:01 AM on Thursday?

    Also, I will be losing my unlimited plan to do so. When you select a data plan, is the GB value the total allotment between all lines, or is that Per line? (My wife's iPhone blasts through almost 6GB of data a month alone)

    It is all lines (IE 4GB shared between all devices not 4GB each device). If you click the bullet on the left side when searching for your phone that says "month to month" u shouldn't lose your unlimited.

    The HTC Tiara that Sprint is supposed to be getting is not worth it. The Ativ S might be worth staying on Sprint, but the L928 is still much better and Nokia is doing so many things to make their phones worth it while Samsung doesn't really care. Plus, knowing Sprint the Ativ S will be $150 to $200 on a two year contract for a phone that was announce 6 or 7 months ago.
