    Yeah! 6 of my classmates with different Lumia phones. Lumia 520 & 535 users are the most I've seen in strangers hands.

    I saw a man and his wife both with windows phones at work the other day. I noticed the wife's phone first, as the yellow 1020 caught my eye immediately. Then noticed the man had an 830. So a approached the couple and said "ahhh, the Nokia 1020! Awesome phone, and an awesome camera!" As I pulled out my 1520 to engage in a windows phone conversation. The guy says "yeah, I'm running windows 10 on mine." "oh" I replied, "so you're a Windows insider as well eh?" "Well, no, I'm a Microsoft employee" he says, fondling his phone. "They just sent me this one" he adds. "the 830 right" I ask, trying to impress this MS employee with my phone knowledge, "No, this one hasn't been released yet" he says. "it's a prototype". So, knowing that his phone was definitely an 830, I ask him what phone it was. He starts looking at it all around, popping the cover off and reading the numbers "I really don't know, but I know it hasn't been released yet"
    Clearly this MS employee has no clue! Imagine that...

    I've never seen one. The closest I came was seeing a signature in a forwarded email that indicated that the original sender was on a windows phone. So I had to order one for myself to see what it was like.

    Once I'm proficient with mine I can show others and provide another alternative to people who think there are only Apple and Android phones out there. 😊

    Good move.
    By the way, which windows phone did you get?

    I got the 830. There were only 2 choices on 3 carriers here. I think the other was a 635? I just really liked the looks of the 830. I poked around the forums for a day or two and then tried to see one in person. I found one at a Rogers store in a city about 45 mins away - but the back was ripped off and the battery wouldn't make contact. Everywhere else, if they had a windows phone at all, only had a dummy unit. Finally I just ordered one directly from Rogers, and then had to order it again as the first order was somehow cancelled.

    I've never gone through so much work to get a phone. Lol. And yet - every kiosk or carrier employee I spoke to said that they had heard good things about Windows phones. They'd just never used one.

    I'm enjoying it a lot . It's a bit of learning curve but definitely seems to be worth it.

    The best way to get to know your Lumia is to get around in the settings.
    When I got my Lumia,I did the same because if there's a feature, there's a setting for it.

    I've been using WP since release and have only seen two other people with one. Which is amazing.... In what, 4yrs?
    I had to stop at att store yesterday and they only had the 830 on display. WP is dead and has always been dead, running only on Microsoft's cash reserves

    Unfortunately my country has 1% of WP users. Anyway I see them from time to time, my bf has one and other female friend. But Android (Samsung, LG, Huawei) and iPhone are much more popular then WP.

    I am using only WP.

    The last few weeks I have seen several people with Windows Phone. Just saw a guy at a sandwich shop with a Lumia 830.... Which is the "highest" end I've seen, the others have been 521 and 635. Saw a 920, but that was right after it came out.

    I also went to Best Buy yesterday, and lo and behold for the very first time they had a Windows Phone display!! I was shocked. Sure, only three phones, all from AT&T (530, 635, 830) and the setup was tiny compared to the iPhone and Android displays, but hey, better than nothing...
    So a few months later, this is what the WP displayed looked like. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted.

    Have seen a couple this week.

    Firstly went to a restaurant and the bloke opposite whipped out a bright yellow phone, the 1020. Didn't get chance to speak to him.

    Went to another restaurant, and I noticed a women (in her 50s) with a phone that I thought was a 930, but wasn't sure as it had a case. However when my mothers 530 went off, the women thought it was hers. I had a little chat after that, she likes the phone. Her friend who had a iPhone 5S kept quiet...

    Sadly, now I'm without a phone as she's poorly and has gone back to MS for a repair/replacement... Hopefully not too long...

    Also, my partner (who's an iPhone fan, was a 920 user) got my father-in-law to buy a 635. The T-Mobile staff apparently did try to steer him towards either an Android or iPhone, my partner said the iPhone was too much, and Android was too confusing for a new smartphone user, which the staff member agreed.

    More annoying was that they didn't have any in stock, so they ordered one from another store, so was charged $10! Shocking!!
    Granted it worked to his favour, as it was then delayed so he complained and T-mobile reduced his monthly contract down by $10 a month, so he got his money back plus some!

    He seems happy with it so far...

    I thought Normal people with Windows phones was a myth.

    But then I saw almost every other person in my country having one. So...

    I've got to admit, in the last 12 months I've seen a noticeable increase in the number of Windows Phones in the wild...
    A few I'm told are due to it being a work-issued phone, so seems the enterprise are picking up Windows Phone... All good news!

    I only knew one person with WP. He was using L530.

    But now he had ditched it and bought some Android phone.

    So now in my social network I am the only one using WP.
    This is the status now
    1 WP user
    1 iOS user
    And lots of Android users.
