    Well this is just an update on two office colleagues.

    One, who had a 930, went back to his iP6+. His 930 had screen issues and faulty buttons which could not be resolved (can't be repaired.) He wasn't convinced enough to give WP another go.

    The other colleague had sent away his bricked 720. Nearly fours months later it came back, repaired. Just as well too, for the Xiaomi M2 he acquired as temporary replacement, died on him. Talk about timing!!!

    So its one out & one back in.

    The WP universe is still hangs in precarious balance...

    Had an interesting day. Started with the builder I've got working on my mothers house has a 530, and was really happy with it, loved Xbox Music & Here Drive. Showed him features of Cortana he didn't realise!

    Then was reading an industry magazine and there was about 20 ads in there for business mobile solutions, and every one mentioned solely Windows Phone (mostly the 640, one mentioned the Acer Liquid [didn't know it existed]) saying they were 'best for business' and highlighted that it has Office built-in.

    Then about an hour ago, I looked on my Twitter feed to a business blog showing that Cortana is a 'must have' app to filter important calls during meetings.

    Either Microsoft have been paying off the telecoms industry or there's a sea-change here in the UK for business.

    Saw a 1020 yesterday. The guy had bought it recently. He studies in the same college as I am in and I met him when I was about to leave for home. We only talked for a minute or two before he had to leave. I showed him some of the denim features(he had cyan). I was unable to meet him today, maybe tomorrow.

    I have 5 friends in my town of 30,000 people that are on WP. 3 of them have a black Lumia 830 just like mine. The other two have the Samsung Ativ S, just like my last phone. I sold it to my ex-wife. So I know 6 people in total that have WP. ;P

    I have 2 close friends and a lot of college/university friends that use WP as well as a lot of FB contacts that use one.

    And I see about 2-3 person each day in the bus or at the subway. WP it's quite popular here, suppressing iPhone sales for the first time last summer and and it still is so far.

    I also noticed many people interested in WP. Yesterday I went to take at some laptops and phones in a local showroom and while I was playing wit a Lumia 930 (I'm actually thinking on getting one since now it seams to be getting cheaper), some guys approached me when they noticed I had a Nokia phone. In a few minutes there were about 7 guys around me asking for WP details, telling me how tired they were to keep hearing the store reps preaching about iPhone and Samsung. That felt good, knowing some are actually ready to try something new.

    My brother, who lives in another city, knows my 830 camera consistently trumps his 1+1. Makes him quiet irritated. Last week, he managed to tracked down a used 1520 online.
    I met the seller last night who lives coincidentally, in my city, and took the phone on his behalf. It cost a bit more than half the price of a brand new 1520. Spent the whole night setting it up, giving it a good going over. Everything checked out fine so it looks like a good deal.
    It will be a couple of months before I visit my brother, so I have something new to paw over before the handover..!!
    I'm not so sure that he will be totally won over. I'll chalk this one up as a partial-conversion !!! ... but watch this space...

    I have only really seen (or noticed) 2 Windows Phones in the wild. One was a guy who used to ride the bus to town, always playing wordament on his 830 and the other is my girlfriends dad and his 520.

    Although my girlfriends dad dropped his 520 only 2 days after getting the phone, breaking the screen. As he couldn't be bothered to get it fixed, I ended up inheriting it and fixing the screen, although the touch panel isn't very accurate or sensitive at all even after being fixed :/

    I see phones with coloured backings all the time from a distance, but when I get closer I end up realising it's another phone with a coloured case and not a lumia.

    I recognized a 535 immediately when I saw it in somebody's hands in the hospital. We talked for more than 5 minutes.

    I'm not talking about the colour... As soon as you hear a Nokia sound: Ringtone or notification, you know it's a Windows Phone....
    WP is everywhere!!!

    Saw a white 730 at college today. It looks so beautiful, makes me want one! Saw the classic 520 on a party last week too. I hope WP keeps outdistancing iOS in Brazil...

    I bought an 830 for my boyfriend after I'd fallen in love with mine ๐Ÿ˜Š then I gave my dad my old 635, and he loves it.
    Other than that, I've seen one 535 at work. A customer was using it. I talked to her for a few minutes, of course showed her the 830.
    Other than that... No. I know two other people that use them and they only do so because I effectively convinced them to. Boyfriend was an easy sell- his Android was running out of battery after about three hours. He would have taken anything as a replacement. My dad hadn't even had a smartphone before the 635. And he's adorable with his little case for it ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
    I live in the Midwest US. Never really see them out and about. I make sure to show the people who ask about my phone the benefits of owning a WP. EVERYONE here has iPhone. Rarely see Samsung, even.

    Saw a 520 two days ago at college. The guy was a bit ungrateful with what he had though. I bet he didn't even had the latest OS on it and doesn't really bothered to explore the benefits and tips and tricks of owning a WP.

    I see them EVERYWHERE in college. Most students have the 520 or 920, some have 1020's or 1520's and I've spotted a few with 830/930. Like t three out of ten people that I see have WP, two have iPhone and the rest have some kind of Android. Also I just in Puerto Rico, idk what the numbers are, but Windows Phones are popular here

    I've seen a fair few 930's, 625's, 520's around here in Australia. The Lumia 530 is the one I see a lot of kids with (sells for $30 on prepaid).

    I think I've only seen a 1520 out in the wild once but it never saw carrier release over here.

    Hopefully we will see the 640 around.

    I saw few Lumia 520, 720, 625. But I never ever saw the Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1520 also even Lumia 930
    But I saw lots of notes and galaxies around me.
    It makes me cry that WP such have low market share.
    In Which galaxy I leave.

    Windows phone user person is most wanted
    Interpol ,raw , FBI should search them. Hahahahaha.
