    I called three stores:

    Store 1) "We have cases, but nothing in the system yet. Hopefully next week"
    Store 2) "You're asking about the Nokia Lumia Ipad? The Lumia Ipad? Oh, Icon? Let me see. Nope."
    Store 3) "Uh, I just checked with someone, and the Icon is only going to be an AT&T phone".

    So yeah. That was awesome.
    If only #3 was true :P

    Okay, I'll join in on the fun (plus, I'm a little bored). Called my closest stores and got the following responses:

    Store 1) "Huh? Icon? Never heard of it, but let me check." Lots of mumbling in the background. "Looks like it's going to be announced by the end of the week and we should have it in stock in 1 to 2 weeks after that."
    Store 2) "We don't have that yet. I have no idea when that will be in stock."
    Store 3) "No, we don't have any here. I'm not sure if it's even been released yet."
    Store 4) "Not in yet. Let me see if I can find a release date on that." On hold for a couple of minutes and then "I can't find a release date, but we have cases for it, so it's got to be fairly soon."

    Why do people keep taking what store associates say as truth?
    Most of them just say whatever you want to hear to get off the phone as quickly as possible.
    Plenty of them have no clue what's going on and just talk.

    These guys aren't working for phone release teams, they're retail associates, possibly in franchise stores. They're not the first to know, and usually know minutes before we do. Just because one says they'll have it soon doesn't mean it's true, it means he's trying to get you to get off the phone but not go to another store.

    I was just speaking with someone in corporate being I filed a complaint about lack of info on the phone. Take this with a grain of salt, she that the delay of the device isn't Verizon doing and it's Nokia. She told me that Nokia provides the dates to Verizon and then they make the announcement.

    I don't think anyone is taking anything as absolute truth, but we're just hoping that there might be some insight from someone that literally works full time for Verizon and may have just received a shipment. Nobody on this forum believes that this will be an AT&T phone, but we may want to poke fun at a Verizon employee that attempts to say that.

    I read every thread that comes up related to the Icon/929. No I have no plans to get one, I am on AT&T and have three cell phones. Its just that they are so entertaining. Better than a good book and twice as funny. Sorry guys I just can't help it. I hope ya'll get them (one day). But I don't think it will be today. Good luck; and keep the posts comming. It gives me something to read until the next prolonged update (by AT&T) starts.

    Why do so many people have multiple cell phones?

    Isn't that redundant.....and needlessly expensive?

    What am I missing?

    Since nobody wants to commit to a proper answer (ie. release date) then assume that this phone will not be a thing until such an announcement is made.

    What shows up first: My free 2520 Keyboard case, or my new Lumia Icon?

    This is killing me though. I was ready to buy in October. Every single day the camera on my temporary HTC 8X makes me angry.

    See if you can get the number of the random China man that has the phone, or maybe the dude in Mexico, or maybe the webmaster at Verizon that put it live, they all seem to know more than the "brain surgeons" at Verizon. If only Verizon outsourced their customer service to China, maybe the associate on the other line would actually have one.

    Well I'm far from poor....but I don't generally flush money either. Sure seems like more and more people (especially around here) have multiple phones. I can see if you have a "work" phone that "work" is paying for......other than that???

    Would you say that in a conversation about owning multiple cell phones in person? If the answer is no, then don't say it on here. If the answer is yes, I don't particularly want to hang out with you.

    In my case, I work for a company that develops mobile applications, among other things. We're a small startup, and it's cheaper for me to have a bunch of phones than for us to contract with a professional testing company...so at any given time I have about 3 iDevices, 2 WP8 devices, and a smattering of Android devices (tablets and phones). The downside of having all the goodies is that I have to use all of them, and I spend (nearly) as much time with my Galaxy SII as I do with my Experia Z1s.

    On weekends, though, it's Lumia 1020 all the way...and my personal tablet is a Dell Venue 8 Pro....with a working stylus (Yay!) and the official keyboard (kinda bleah, to be honest).

    I get what you are saying. I only have one daily driver and a couple of old backups. Some people go a little overboard with their tech obsession. Some remarked earlier, (not here on theVerge) of how they spent almost $2000 on gadgets last year. That's overboard.

    Is it really overboard?
    If someone bought an iPad, a PS4 and an Xbox One they'd be near that.

    How do you know it isn't someone that is single and doesn't take many vacations? The average person spends way more than that on kids and travel.

    Listen, its *MY* opinion. I think it is overboard. I think if some tech geeks used an app like Mint and saw what they spent their money on, they would be shocked at the results. I spent around $300 or so eating out since august. That's just one example. I understand wanting new tech, and if you can afford go ahead. But if you know better than to spend thousands of dollars on tech you shouldn't. I am cheap person though. I get a new phone once a year and that`s it for me. I now have HP Split X2 and love it. If anything I want a Windows Phone but believe me when I say I`m buying refurbished or used on ebay for no more than $200.

    Spoke to a rep over the phone who had no clue about when it was coming...
    He did Know about the phone just not when it was being released.
    My Opinion is that it will be Annouced at MWC then released on March 5th just like the @Evleaks suggested

    I'm just teasing you. I just find it odd that you even bring it up. Some people spend more on certain things that they value more than others. Others live frugally no matter what. Who cares?

    I get a new phone once every two years....when my contract expires. I'm on "month to month" right now (beyond 2 years) just waiting for the Damn Icon to show up.

    But....that being said, I'm a bit of a hobby freak and blow money on (generally speaking) useless crap that I find fun. The latest being collecting pinball machines.
