    I got mine on Memorial Day at a Microsoft store. I dealt with the assistant manager. I asked how many 928's had been sold and he said "a couple". I guess I was number 3.
    If you live near a Microsoft store, you should definitely get your phone there. The most friendly and knowledgeable people you will find. And, they give you the best deal on the phone. Best price, best trade-in prices by far, best warranty, Bing Challenge credit and extra SkyDrive storage. But, they only sell it in white, which has really grown on me over the past week.
    Extra SkyDrive storage??? They didn't say anything to me about that....

    My purchasing experience and store set up is superior to the experience we had at att when partner got his 920. Truth be told the entire Verizon experience is better but that's another story!

    You may have to ask them for it. You get a Microsoft booklet that has free codes for extras such as Skype service, magazines and 3GB of additional storage on SkyDrive. You just go to your SkyDrive account and enter the code and you now have 10GB of free storage.

    I just wonder how well the sales figures would improve if they'd at least advertise it a little. To this point, I think I've only seen one ad for the 928 and it wasn't on tv either, but rather a billboard.

    I think it must depend on area... I live in the Chicago suburbs and have seen at least 6 ads for the 928 on TV. I've read about a lot of people seeing them frequently too.

    I have seen the Verizon ad and the Microsoft ad play during the same show.

    You guys must not watch FOX prime time. I see 928 commercials in shows like NEW GIRL almost every break.

    According to Canacord, the 928 was the number 3 selling handset for Verizon in May, right behind the iPhone 5 and S4. Certainly give credence to the strong sales rumor. Will be interesting to see just how many phones are sold, which will take some guess work off the percentages when Nokia releases total Lumia sales numbers and the share by phone charts hit the net. Considering how large the customer base is for VZW, being in third place must mean a large number of units being moved.

    At the risk of being attacked for merely stating a fact, on bestbuy.com the Lumia 928 ranks 33rd in sales out of a total of 73 Verizon devices. It is getting slaughtered by iPhone and Android there. Is this indicative of all of Verizon sales? I don't know, so take it for whatever you want it to be. The good news, though, is that it seems to be climbing.
    I purchased mine on release day from a Microsoft store because nobody had it. Since then my friend has been trying to get it from Best Buy to use his Reward Zone points to get it for free. However Best Buy doesn't have it in the local stores, they never have. Nor has he been able to get it online. Not even our Best Buy Business Rep can get them. So I'd guess that the reason why they're not selling is ether because their not really carrying them much or can't get a supply of them.

    I'm not surprised it's not doing well at Best Buy. I was at a store the other day and they didn't have them here either and the employees, of course, push everybody to the Samsung products.

    I've read that VZW sells about 10 million smartphones per quarter (3 months), so 2-3 million per month. But then I see that they sold 7 million iPhones in Q4 2012, with 3.1 million being iPhone 5's. Adjusting for Christmas, probably about 500k for a regular month? So for the timeframe of that data, probably somewhere under that for 928. Hard to guestimate any further, but not more than 500,000. Could be much lower of course.
