    The icon runs perfectly as is....if I never heard of cyan, denim, or win 8.1, I'd be just fine.

    I asked a dude in the Verizon store why the Lumia Icon wasn't being sold anymore. He told me because of the Microsoft acquisition of Nokia. Soooo they don't want to sell phones with the name Nokia on it? Why aren't the rest of the companies doing that? Didn't make sense lol
    If that's the case, why are they still selling the 928?

    I'll believe it when I see it. And probably won't update until I see user reports.

    I hate to abandon WP but at this point I'm trying to get into an iPhone 6. Vzw screwed me on edge though so maybe not.

    Well Brenda, it would appear half of your plan makes sense. I, too will likely be switching over to an iPhone. A distinction, I hope you would follow, is that it also most certainly be an unlocked GSM device.

    Well, the fast is, you talked to a Verizon customer service rep/sales person, they don't know crap when it comes to internal workings at Verizon. They never did, and never will...

    Maybe Verizon wanted to get the phone with Cyan/Denim with Microsoft branding to promote it again ?

    I was in two Verizon corporate stores this weekend looking for a case for my Icon and both of them have sent back all their unsold Icon cases. If they were going to bring the Icon back with new branding the cases would still be the same so no point to send them back.

    Zero chance that Verizon is looking to re-brand the phone with Cyan or Denim.

    My guess is they retired it because the 830 is coming out on AT&T and looks very similar, so they don't really have a visual exclusive any longer.

    I also inquired with a contact I have at Microsoft's hardware division and I don't think we are going to see an update (Cyan and/or Denim) until early December. My contact and his/her boss made it sound like Microsoft isn't all that happy with Verizon's handling of this, and it sounded like there will be more and more phones sold unlocked, but I didnt push on specifics

    The ATT 830 comes in dark aluminum. Hardly similar...

    But the issue is contentious, so what you're reiterating make sense. The visual similarity may have become a legal and contractual issue. ATT's aluminum color was changed at some point indicating that Verizon may have made a stink.

    Unlocked is the way to go. Also, no more exclusives.

    Yeah I just ordered the 1520.3 from B&H for $500. Few weeks to get here, figure I can cancel if they release Cyan beforehand and if not will just sell my Icon. Unlocked GSM from now on

    and you know this how ? Let me guess your a customer service rep for Verizon....If so, refer to my last post :)


    I expect to see the Icon on overstock.com or newegg.com for $99 no contract soon, lol.
    And that would s.u.c.k.....Just a nice way to de-value a high end phone... So my phone I could of sold for $200 a year and 1/2 from now will be worth $50...

    Thanks Verizon, maybe I should sue them for the difference...

    I've had mine for at least a week now. Its a great phone. I do have the scroll/tap issue, but its minor. Its not bad enough to be annoying. I haven't attempted to mess with sensitivity options and for all I know that would fix it.

    If I were to jump back on the Lolipop train with VZW I think the Turbo would be it... Looks nice (for Google) anyway.
