    I went to one of the local vzw stored today because I needed to upgrade one of my lines, they wanted an Android phone (the Motorola droid turbo, to be exact), but in the store they had a new display with a big sign that said new arrival, and on that display was the Lumina Icon.
    It was a dumby phone and I asked the girl who was helping me about it and she said the display just came in yesterday. I asked about the icon being removed from the website and she was aware of that, and said she wasn't sure, and hadn't had a change to check them out, but she said the display just went up on Monday evening and they just started getting shipments of Nokia phones...

    Do you know if the dummy ICON said "Microsoft ICON" or was it "Nokia ICON" ?

    Maybe I (and others) we right on one of the "through crap at the wall to see what sticks" that Verizon was going to re-release the ICON with 8.1...

    Interesting, very interesting.... Anyone else see this display ?

    Well, Verizon does tend to "release" phones on Thursdays. So maybe we'll hear something today.

    Went to a nearby corporate Verizon store today to see if they had an Icon on display. Turns out, they didn't have a single Windows Phone on display. Plenty of Androids and about 6 or 7 iPhones. They didn't even have an M8 out running WP.

    Then I made my way up the street to the corporate AT&T store. They had a whole counter with WP8's. Two 1520's, two 830's, two 630's, a 1020, the Windows version of the M8 right next to the Android version, both distinctly marked.

    I know that mileage varies depending on a number of factors when it comes to retail experiences. Regardless, this spoke volumes.

    If this display is rolling out to all stores and isn't just an old display with old inventory, it will most likely not have 8.1 on the phone as 8.1 is listed in development still for the Icon.

    But, it could be a sign that Verizon and Microsoft made amends.

    Amends? Not unless the head of Verizon and the head of MS met in the middle of town square with the press looking on and they whipped it out and MS had the larger one would I believe AMENDS.

    I also went to an at&t corp store yesterday and found a great selection of WP's on display. The 830 with Denim was live as well as some others.
    I have three WP's on Verizon.
    It would be nice to feel as though the carrier was supportive and up to date and enthusiastic about the product that I happen to like. I haven't looked into a similar plan on at&t. Three shared with 4gb. Unlimited talk and text. Maybe I'll check that out. I've been too lazy to pursue the switch. If anybody has made the switch maybe they could give some feedback.

    I visited the Verizon store in Phoenix at 24 street and Baseline road on 11/13 - Nothing new there. No Microsoft (Windows Phone) signage. I did see the 928 and 929 still for sale and asked if they had any other Windows phones. Of course, the VZ rep said "No, this is all we have." and that was it.

    I'm hopeful to see more Microsoft phones and will check again next week since it's on my way home.

    I have the 822 and Icon and like them both with the DP software.

    On the MS site (old Nokia) the 822, 928, and Icon all are listed as having 8.1 with Cyan.

    Anyone else notice that this person has dropped out of the conversation? I for one would have taken a picture of that display if I saw it.

    I'm not believing a thing posted here without some kind of verification.

    Seeing as the new brand name is supposed to be Lumia I believe it should just say Lumia Icon.

    The Icon is still on display here in downtown Denver. The store is on 16th Street mall which is very very busy. But I did not see the HTC One M8 Windows Phone.

    I don't know. It was blinking like crazy, but I didn't have time to play with it as I was already an hour late coming back from lunch. They probably thought I was crazy cause I paid my bill, snapped a pic of the Icon and ran out the store. lol

    On AT&T, I have 3 lines, unlimited Talk & text w tethering sharing 10GB (doubled to 20GB) for $127 month (before tax & fees) w an 18% discount. Don't think Verizon can touch that (though I haven't checked, lately).

    I'm sorry for dropping out off this conversation. Today we got hit with several feet if snow, and on my way out I lost the alternator in my car and it chewed up the serpentine belt. I made it to the part store to get the needed parts and spent about an hour in the store parking lot under my hood. After finishing up, the snow was now very deep and the roads were extremely iced over. From the part store to the vzw store it was only about a mile, but in that short distances there was 5 major accidents. People around here get very crazy during the first snow fall of the year, and I'm still a little shell shocked from the accident I was in just a few years ago. In that accident the wife and I got t-boned by a truck and my wife's van flipped several times. I ended up losing my wife of 25 years that day, and at times I get very nervous behind the wheel. So with the way the roads/weather was I was not going to change it just to pop in and take a picture of the sign/display.
    I'm sorry and I too am wanting to know why the icon is being displayed as a new arrival.

    Well this thread went downhill to say the least. Hmmm got me thinking now. There's a Verizon store about a mile or so away from where I live.

    No need to apologize. Sorry for your loss -- lost a close friend last year and I still can't quite wrap my head around it.

    Where is the snow at? Our family is up in the UP so we get reports from them (and snicker at them). Negaunee got like 4 feet in 2-3 days. :)
