    Well guys looks like we got screwed again. It is my opinion that either Verizon doesn't like Microsoft or Microsoft does not like Verizon, might be Nokia also, because a WP/W8 tablet on Verizon is a constant chore to get updates and free stuff everyone else enjoys.

    Anyway any news on how Icon users can get this Gift Voucher from Nokia?

    I was going to post the same thread.... Anyone figure out a workaround for any of the part of this ? The Gift Voucher to get the app credit or the apps that they claimed would be free (still listed as a cost in the marketplace)

    I can confirm it's now in the store if you search for it on your phone.

    I can't download the app from a computer but I can from the phone. Search for it on the store on your phone itself, Gift Voucher.

    Or just go to the Nokia Collection in the app store. The Gift Voucher app should be near the top.

    Download the App social and it will have a special slot or you can look up gameloft in the store.

    BTW ... everyone DID read the 6000 page (or so it seems) Privacy Policy regarding what they do with the multitude of *personal data* the collect and/or have access to ... you did read this, riiiiight ?

    I LOVE how it starts off .... "WE CARE ABOUT YOUR PRIVACY" ...
    Translation: This is why you need a lawyer to help you read this!

    I like this part also:
    "Who Is The Controller of Your Personal Data?"
    "Microsoft Mobile Oy of Keilalahdentie 4, 02150 Espoo, Finland"

    How cool is that !

    Got my 25$ Voucher. Thanks Nokia and MS. :)

    NOTE : If your in a region other than US here is the workaround :

    Go to Settings > Region and ensure "Region" is set to the United States and "Regional Format" matches phone language. Restart by clicking the button. Then install Gift Voucher | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Open and follow the steps & finally click "copy and activate now". A voucher code will appear. Then close everything and got back to ur settings and change back to your region followed by restarting.

    Then open Gift Voucher, click "copy and activate", you will be taken to your wallet. Click + and select Microsoft gift card. Past the code in the box and it will redeem your voucher.
