    Long story short, I had to get a new phone and switch carriers. I went with Verizon and got the 928. They only give you 14 days to exchange the phone. Don't want to be stuck with this one.

    Would've gotten a 520/521/620 on these prepaid carriers and just wait until something official. Phone is not coming out now.

    Don't really have the money to blow on a temp phone.

    Hopefully the rumors are true and it will come out at the end of January.

    It doesn't seem that you have a lot of options. Before the 14 days are up, either decide to keep your 928, exchange it for an Odyssey or an 8X, or exchange it for a device on another platform. You could also consider getting something like an iPhone 5s or Note III, which you can then sell when the 929 (or whatever you're waiting for) is released. The cash you get will probably be more than enough to buy the 929 off contract.

    Seeing as it hasn't even been announced yet, you may have just put yourself into a corner.

    Didn't really have a choice. However, TGP makes a good point. Probably what I'll do.

    They do if you're on Verizon. The best you can do for a temp windows phone on Verizon is a used NL822.

    Sure they do BC he'll get his money back by selling those more popular phones. I have done that many many times. As long as you have the latest and greatest, you can usually get top dollar from them...enough to pay for your early termination fee and a very good chunk of your next phone.

    The impression I get from the OP is that he doesn't have the money *NOW*, not that he's just concerned about floating a purchase for a month or so to get some residual later.

    Get a cracked-screen phone on ebay to tide you over, that's what I did. Found a 928 for $89 with only a slight crack which is actually off-screen.

    Really? Wow, that's awesome. I wish I could find a deal like that. My Trophy is still truckin', but WP7.5 has just been abandoned when it comes to apps...

    I think I got lucky. Most of the cracked-screen phones are really messed up, but mine is just in the lower-left-hand corner. Doesn't actually cover any part of the screen or buttons.

    But you can get an 822 for $60-80 without a cracked screen that'll tide you over.

    Does Verizon have their CES announcement today? If so, they might announce it then.

    Verizon has a booth. I'm not sure if they have an announcement lined up, though. It would be tomorrow.

    I did the same....cept mine cost $135. Arriving tomorrow. So stoked to be ditching my HTC One. It's a fine device, but camera quality is no good.

    If your going to stay with Verizon, go to craigslist or something and find a USED Verizon phone for cheap (or look in the for sale fourm here), Then return your 928, there you will be allowed a phone at a discounted price.

    Use the "used one" till the ICON/929 hits....but, I would bet it would be longer than your 14 days...Verizon is known to drag their feet on UNANNOUNCED PHONES (Yes, the 929 had not been announced from Verizon OR Nokia)

    Guys, the 929 (now the Icon) will be announced tomorrow, I'm 91.31802% sure.

    Unless you have some inside track information, you're a pretty ballsy guesser.

    I bet sometime in the next two weeks. Could be tomorrow. But chances are slim.
