    First time poster here. From the Droid Eris to the Droid X to the Bionic to the Rezound, Nexus and finally, the Samsung Galaxy S3. Until yesterday when I said "My name is Brad Miller, I am giving up my Galaxy S3 and THIS is my Windows Phone"!

    Got the white one late yesterday after work, still finding my way around (This is my 1st win phone since the Motorola Q), but so far, so awesome. :)

    Hello, never have had a windows device before...though this phone intrigues my wife and I to switch from Sprint/Android. Does anyone know where I can pick up a black 928? I went to the verizon store yesterday and the guy wasn't very helpful, just told me they were sold out within a 500 mile radius and he had no idea when they would get some in, could be weeks/month. Would Radio Shack have them in stock? -I'll call later, but wondering if anyone has had any luck obtaining a black or have any suggestions. Also - if I purchase online through Newegg or Radioshack, i'm sure I can't do the 12 month device payment plan or apply my company discount right?

    Good luck! I believe the black ones will arrive on the 20th, at least that's what I've read here. As for the payment plan, I believe that's an in store deal only.

    Went the Verizon store - white ONLY, but want BLACK ... they ordered it for me - I went full $500 price to keep my unlimited data + new stuff is now coming every 6 months = NO CONTRACT!

    WHY is the black delayed until May 20th - did the cargo plane get lost?

    The lack of ONLY white will sure hurt the "first weekend sales numbers" that the analysts will jump on come Monday morning!

    I'm going to check out the black when it hits the store. If I like it ima drive back to my nearest (hour and half) Microsoft store and change this one in for that!

    Yes, that is correct. I got my white 928 yesterday through the device payment plan just so I could keep my unlimited data. Very fast to find out if you qualify and easy to setup. This is my first WP and so far, I like it. Definitely a nice experience compared to the S3 I just changed from. We'll see how it goes....

    I ordered a black 928 at a Verizon store at 10:30 am on May 16th and my order status originally said "Ship BY may 20th" - is now showing, Ship ON May 20th. The Verizon store manager "tried to order direct" and he said NO INVENTORY!

    Several friends wanted a black model and said that the Verizon website was showing the Black as "This item is temporarily out of stock" - I just checked Sat am and same thing.

    This sure will hurt Nokia's weekend sell-thru numbers that the analysts will report on Monday and one again try to paint the picture that Windows Phone IS DOA!

    I have over a dozen friends and clients that would buy the black model today - anyone know any details of the black model problem?

    Just got off a chat session with Verizon - they gave me a "back door" approach to "pre-order" the BLACK - SAYS SHIP BY May 20th - at least from the SF Bay Area, the main Verizon site link "shows OUT OF STOCK" and No Back Order.

    She said they are "aware of the problem"

    Hoping to get a Windows Phone soon. Was gonna go with the ativ odyssey, but now im interested in the 928. However, i know (from researching the 822 a little bit) that nokia has had some issues concerning phone bugs. Here's what i'm thinking so far.......ativ odyssey is $50 cheaper, has what i'm looking for most(good call quality and battery life). Lumia 928 seems to be nice, but it's too new so i dont know how the battery life or call quality is yet (i've heard similar remarks to the ativ, but not in as much abundance and sometimes not consistent). Any feedback on this? And please give some sort of explanation why i should go with one over the other.

    I'm getting a little fidgety reading these reviews about this device. I planned on waiting for the first batch of devices to come and go. Now I'm waiting for the first sign of colors to show, but some of the images I have seen from the 928 make me want to use the new payment plan right now!

    Battery life - better than my 8x was
    Screen - amazing
    Camera - the best I have ever had
    Call quality has been good, speaker phone works better than my 8x

    No problems, bugs or lockups for me in one week of use. I would spend the extra money and get it.

    Likewise. Also the HTC One, but I'm giving up hope it'll come to VZW.

    Only things holding me back really are the things people are mentioning in the "what it needs to succeed" thread. But I think I'm willing to accept the shortcomings for an overall better experience and to support the platform.

    Yeah I'm giving up on the One as well. My upgrade isn't until June 7th so I havee some time, but I'm leaning more towards the S4, because I feel like it has more features, but I really like the 928. It's definitely not an easy choice.

    I'm June 30, so same boat. The 'number of features' is actually a big turnoff for me w/ the S4. I've been on android for 3 years and I'm sick of tinkering just to get things to work at all and I'm interested in a phone that just works damn well. I don't doubt that the S4 does, but the number of features touted by Samsung makes it less appealing to me.

    I really wanted this phone, and wanted to love it. But just too many reported issues and problems, as well as missing features and buggy behavior (latest is the camera going green). Went with the S4, and so far, am very pleased with it. However, keep in mind that the S4 currently only has 16GB, versus the 32GB in the 928. You can add a microSD card (which I have - a 64GB card) to the S4, but of course, it's an extra expense over the 928 (which doesn't have a microSD slot).

    In spite of my misgivings, I still kind of want a 928. Go figure. :-)

    I'm my experience the Nokia Lumia lines always had a few minor bugs at launch. My 900 and 920 included. I had to get a swap for both hardware and Nokia always provided prompt software patches.

    I still have not regretted sticking with these phones.

    My Samsung focus was beautiful. I lived that phone, but Samsung and everyone else other that Nokia do not really support their WP phones after they are released.

    Post it in the Marketplace forum. Someone out on ATT should be interested.
