    If Verizon does not release the 929 this week I am done with them. I'm so fed up with them, they for one ruin the beauty of Nokia Phones, then they make us wait. Even if AT&T gets exclusive deals this means that Verizon isn't paying enough to get those deals. So yea it's AT&T's fault I guess, but I still blame Verizon. Verizon said when WP8 came out they were going to promote it, to make it a 3rd ecosystem. So what do they do? Remove color, make phones rounder or squarer, and make us wait. I honestly don't care whats "best" Verizon, I am their customer, and I am not happy. AT&T I guess your exclusives work, because if I don't get a 929, I'm heading your way.

    WHAT THE HELL VERIZON? THIS IS WHAT I THINK OF YOUR PHONES.

    I'm not actually mad at Verizon. I'm sure they have a good reason for waiting to announce the device. I still think it'll be announced and released this week. And I happen to think the 928 and 929 look slick and professional. But I'll act pissed off and raise a stink with you just so that WPC or someone else will investigate and get us some information soon.

    Calm down there buddy. Verizon is getting an exclusive... the 929. AT&T is just launching their exclusive first. AT&T also neuters their phones just for the record.
    If you really like Verizon's coverage I'd at least wait until the Dec. 6th before jumping ship.

    I understand your anger. Verizon absolutely ruins beautiful phones, and releases them far too late. AT&T always gets the nicest looking Nokia phones 6 months earlier, and by the time Verizon releases anything, it's colorless, rounder, and using specs that have already been touted in the AT&T release half a year ago. If Verizon cites lack of demand, they only have themselves to blame for releasing uninteresting phones long after they were supposed to be interesting.

    If Verizon didn't have good coverage, or if AT&T had better coverage, I'd jump in a heartbeat. The coverage is the only thing keeping me on Verizon right now.

    And? They were probably waiting to see how market share was going before committing massive funds for an exclusive.

    And? That's probably a good business move.

    Could someone define "exclusive" for me? Were the 822, 8X with wireless charging, and ATIV Odyssey not "exclusives"? Arguably, the 928 has a xenon flash that is exclusive to the 928....

    All exclusives are different. unfortunately the only people who know what the exclusive is are people who have access to the contract.

    I agree that verizon normally has garbage exclusives, but their coverage is head and shoulder above the rest. I basically travel to every part of az and always have enough bars to make a call. I've had AT&T, tmobile, alltel, sprint and none of them compare. With that said if verizon doesn't release this soon I might just go for another iphone I guess.

    What phone are you using that you want the 929 that bad? I am currently using HTC 8X and I don't think the 929 is that much of an upgrade to get. Sure the specs are better but the functions are remotely the same. I am waiting for goldfinger.

    I have a 822, I don't consider it, the 8x, the 928 exclusives. They are just Verizon varients of current devices. The 8x had wireless charging and the 928 had a flash or something. I want a real exclusive, or just a phone the same day AT&T gets it. The 920 (my dream phone, ima buy one just to have, the best looking phone ive ever seen) the 1020 (if red id buy also) and the 1520 (6 inch to big for me personally, but still an exclusive). these phones are exclusives.

    I know the grass isn't always greener, but im just tired of waiting on a phone I sort of want because its a dumbed down Lumia, I want a real Lumia

    Another point, the 8x has color, why cant they make Lumias with color. I'm not sure what colors Verizon offers in the 8x, but I think there is a red one. The 822 had grey and red, but they don't have wireless charging covers in red and grey so why even make them.

    You need to stop and understand. The carriers oftentimes contact the manufacturers and "order" a phone a specific way. This gives them the "exclusive" rights to a phone.

    Ok? well in that case who ever orders Verizon's Windows Phones are not doing a good job. And still like I said i'm not happy as a customer, If this makes them more money sure fine do it, but I will be leaving Verizon.

    The lack of color really blows my mind. Black and White. Not even the-sometimes-available-red from Verizon. It's already bad enough that the 929 has zero style, imo. At least let it have some color.

    Why not just get a colored case or some color skinz? I don't think I've ever looked at any of my phones and have been "man I wish this was red, it would make my phone so much better."

    I understand the frustration with the color. I used to really want a red 928. Cases are not the same. I'm cool with a black phone now because my line of work is a bit more professional and i'd rather have a professional looking phone when talking to clients. And that's exactly what Verizon is going for.

    The truth is, if Verizon released red as well as black and white, black and white would both outsell red. That's just the way it is. And that's why Verizon doesn't throw red into the mix.

    I do wish they provided more options, though.

    The biggest thing I'll be looking for is the Battery Size. Here's to hoping we can get something better than the disappointing 2000mA of the 928.

    First off- no problem with your thread. I have quit AT&T a million times due to dumb decisions and problems, at least in my head. I understand. No sweat. You want a device and a good one. I am very happy you are this passionate for a WP product. Sign that WP has good fans, and that makes me feel secure in it's growth- repeat customers. Love it.

    I love the thought of the 929, and wish it was AT&T's device. That 5" screen size seems to be my personal "sweet spot" for a large phone. I have been playing around with my wifes Samsung Note 1, and it is a little gangly, but the advantages of screen space trump the disadvantages of the large footprint. However, after going to the AT&T store and playing around with the 6.3" Galaxy Mega, I am not thinking the 1520 is my kind of device. Just..... monster uncomfort level there. So, I will try it, but I am thinking it is not for me.

    Big Red is a great network, but moving over from AT&T means signing a new contract and the comparable ones at Verizon are just a little more expensive, and the advantages are not that much greater. It is the ultimate catch 22- are you the type of person who chooses their service based on:

    1) Service.
    2) Device.
    3) Price.

    I will play with the L929 and see what other devices are availble for the rest of my family, contract price, ECT. But, the grass ain't always greener.

    As a side not, tcedwards, what device/carrier would you move to?

    Not happening. That phone is not releasing this week. No pre-order info, no headlines especially with the 2520 coming this week? Not happening.

    Yesterday I called a few stores and no news actually no knowledge of a Lumia 929. I then called Verizon customer retention and no new information on the Lumia 929 they did not know anything about the phone. I threaten to cancel my account (I have 6 lines) and still no knew news. The gentleman told me that at this time there is no new Windows phone release scheduled for this year. He indicated that there is one phone for next year.
    Today I had my wife call a few other stores and also call Verizon and same stuff they said they never heard of it and that they did not show any new windows phones coming out this year.
    Not sure if we all got fooled
