    My Trophy is actually in the best shape of any phone I've had at the end of the contract, but I'm starting to get annoyed with it. It's gotten slow (likely due to all the messages in it), making me a bit loathe to go into the texting menus. Worse, it drives me insane when I hit Back and it takes me from texting person A to the Texts menu, then I hit Back again and it puts me back into texting Person A. I cannot fathom why it allows redundancy in its "cards," or whatever term it uses for multitasking, and if WP8 does that I may just drop for something that does proper multitasking and lets me quit tasks when I want instead of getting dragged back through them when I hit Back.

    Anyway, rant aside, the thing is holding up, just no longer a joy to use. I'm tempted to wait until colors hit for this device, which I'd guess would be 2-3 months. Can't decide if I should do that or just buy a white on Thursday. Guess it depends, in part, on what we learn tomorrow. At this point I have no qualms ditching Verizon.

    I've already got a DT-900 charging plate sitting on my desk awaiting the new 928 that will mate with it. I didn't bother getting the charging cover for the 822 because I knew I was going to be upgrading.

    ProTip: Take a router to the underside of that shelf and mount the charger in the pocket. Same function but 100x more cool factor :)

    Oh, trust me - I've considered that, but it'll have to wait until I'm done with my porch at home, and a few other projects, before I have the time to drag out the router.

    So I previously said I'm in for a white one on Thursday pending Nokia's announcement on the 14th, and now I can confirm I'm in for a white one on Thursday. I'm a little annoyed that the 928 doesn't have the same camera improvements as the 925, if only because it's essentially an admission from Nokia that focus and clarity are not up to par on the 928, which hasn't even been released yet! I was hoping that the many shots I've seen out there for the 920/928 that seemed to suffer from inaccurate focus or fuzzy detail were fixable via software improvements, but it appears that may not be entirely true. It's not enough to get me off of Verizon and onto T-Mobile, but it is a disappointing fact to know when you're about to enter into a two year contract.

    Don't think it is an admission by Nokia of any issues with the camera on the 920 and 928. That feature was added to the 925 to differentiate it from the 920 and 928, just as the 928 got the Xenon flash to differentiate it. Though each phone is essentially the same, each carrier can promote those differences. Essentially that is what the carriers want. They want phones that make them differentiate themselves from their competitors. I believe it has already been said in other threads. Nokia is not Samsung nor Apple here in the U.S., they have to deal with the carriers. Unlike Samsung and Apple, who can dictate what the carriers get.

    I just got back from Verizon, I asked and they said full retail is 499, if anyone is wondering. They looked it up, it's legit. They said the Windows Rep just stopped in today. Don't know if that was established info.

    I have the 822 in Black and plan to use my wife's upgrade to get a 928 (Wanted RED but only available in Black or White) in Black and probably sell my 822. I may wait to see if Wal-Mart does the free thing like they did for the 822! I took their ad back to Best Buy and ended up getting my 822 for free.

    Its official. I called my local Verizon, they said they will have them in stock Thursday morning. I'll be waiting at the door when they open up at 9am. PS: If anybody wants an 8x I'll be posting a WTS thread in a moment!

    Wow! Sorry to hear that about your Trophy. My Trophy is in A++ condition, and spot on as fast is it has always been despite being laden with apps. I am really looking forward to the 928 and finally LTE speeds. The Verizon rep with whom I spoke today knew nothing about the Lumina, so I'm hoping the Nokia announced 16th holds.

    I'm waiting until the 31st to get mine. (Bonus check and I want to buy outright to keep my unlimited data)

    Maybe I'll get really lucky and there'll be a smoking deal on Amazon by then.

    After reading about the 920, 928, and 925 I am ready for big red's 928 (black) to be released. I'm currently an iPhone 4s user who have used Samsung GS1 device (Continuum), Blackberry Curve and Windows Palm Treo 700w. I am excited about the 928 and WP8. I really think Nokia did a good job with 920 and I think it was a good move for them to make different iterations for other carriers, to see how they are going to tweak/map their next gen devices. I'm glad to see Nokia back on the map again making progress.

    I went into the local Verizon store this morning and they had 5 whites in the back that just got delivered, however I was not able to talk the guy into getting me in one today due to I need an early upgrade. So I call into CS and now have one otw and it will be here Friday. Looking forward to retiring my old droid x2.

    Nope. Had a 401k that rolled into an IRA because my company was purchased, and I'd only worked there for a short time before the sale, so there was only a grand in it. Went to a PNC branch and had them cut me a check for it. I'd been meaning to move it out of there anyway.

    In a way.... Haha my upgrade isn't available til June 30 and it's not worth it to spend the money for full retail just to not wait 6 weeks.... Sadly.

    I'm going to get my 928 from the Microsoft store. One is being held for me, so I'll be there 10am tomorrow. The Microsoft store where I am has a deal going on. If you trade a cell phone when you purchase the 928, they apply the amount your phone is worth to the new phone purchase. I'm gettting sixty-something for my Trophy...plus a fifty dollar trade in bonus. If the Microsoft store goes with the pricing of Verizon, that means I'll have at least $110 toward the $150 phone (two year contract). I do have a $50 Microsoft store gift card too.

    That's wicked. Verizon tried to get my brand new Nexus (refurb) for $20 trade in value. Yeah right. 200 on ebay.

    Our local Verizon and Best Buy won't have it in stock tomorrow. Have to drive a half hour...it'll be worth it!
