    As for the battery life, no comparison....much better in the Icon! It feels good not having to carry a spare battery pack or charging cord with me, lol. As for the keyboard, I'm getting used to the keyboard on WP, but nothing beats the virtual keyboard on BB10 in my opinion. But the keyboard works well on the Icon and with 8.1, it now includes an option to swipe...

    Just got mine today on the edge from the 928. After all the updates finally got to where my 928 was. On the 928 I reset my phone after 8.1 to help with some probe and after restoring it back I was able to have my same start screen before I reset. I'm not sure I can do that with this coming from a 928. Although I may reset this and see if it comes up. Just trying to minimize my work as for getting the start screen how I had it before.

    You will need to rearrange the start screen. I suggest taking screenshots of your start screen and backing those up.

    Cheers!

    That was what you had to do before the last update. But after that, if you backed everything up, and had reset that the start screen would be the same once you logged on you ms acct.

    Picked up a refurbished Icon (white) off eBay a few weeks ago. Want to keep my unlimited data. Phone looked good as new, not a single scratch or blemish. Installed latest Verizon update and then WP 8.1 Dev Preview. No issues, it works great (knock on wood). Screen is gorgeous, build quality is excellent...the unit just feels solid and looks great. No complaints about battery life. Happy with the upgrade over my 928...with two caveats.

    First, the low light camera and video performance is a downgrade, Lumia Cyan update is supposed to address this, but I don't know how they can do this given the physics of the 928's f/2.0 aperture and Icon's f/2.4. I rarely use the Xenon flash on the 928, but comparing the two phones with the high speed rotating ceiling fan test, the 928 stopped the blades, the blades were blurry with the Icon.

    Second, the wifi and LTE reception is worse than the 928. It's not unbearable, but very noticeable. Perhaps the official Verizon update will address this.

    I won't be returning the phone (30 day return policy with 20% return fee). I do look forward to the enhancements that will be part of the update.

    Weird, when I did it, my apps appeared on my start screen, but they weren't organized like previous. They were all just medium tiles in a row. They may have just changed.

    Cyan not out yet. Likely by end of July for most WP8 users, which might mean by November for Verizon users.

    Ok, I had on planned waiting for the 930 but wasn't sure what carrier that it was going to once it got to the states. I just couldn't wait that long, hahaha. But I seen there was a cyan update but was that for all for Lumia devices or certain ones?

    Cyan will be for all Lumia devices. But it hasn't been released yet on any device. The Nokia Lumia 630 comes with it because it's direct from the manufacturer. The 930 will come with it because it will be direct from the manufacturer. But all other Lumia's won't get cyan until it's officially rolled out with WP8.1 sometime this summer.

    Aw, man, I wish I had known. There's a way to get a subsidized phone on contract and keep your UDP. I found a thread on Android Central's forums doing a search one day. It takes following some exact directions, but it does work. Regardless, the phone is a treat. I came from a Trophy so right now.

    Pretty sure there is no way Verizon is going to let you keep unlimited data and upgrade...unless you can share that article?

    I had issues at first. But Dev 8.1 probably made this my fav phone I've ever had. Also I notice its doesn't get hot anymore.

    Just got my Icon two days ago. Upgraded from a Samsung Galaxy S4. This is my first experience with Windows Phone. I must say that the hardware is gorgeous and though it's not the best camera offered in the Lumia lineup, it does have a very nice camera (though on the auto settings leaves some pictures taken indoors are a bit yellowed). I'm looking forward to spending the next 28 days with my new phone, at which time I will decide if it will remain my daily driver. I'm hoping that WP 8.1 is pushed out by Big Red by then, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Well, I've done a bad thing, I ditched AT&T for Verizon and replaced my 635 with an Icon. While I was expecting an upgrade it is amazing how much faster the Icon is.

    If you register with the Developer for Preview, you can download Windows Phone 8.1 anytime. You then just have to wait for Verizon to release the Cyan firmware update.

    I spent several hours last night setting it up. So far the only complaint is the slow load time from screen lock - to unlock when the power button is pushed.

    I have that same problem. Some times take like 3 seconds... Too much time for a snapdragon 800, my 928 was awake when press the button
