    Haha. When I said RL, I meant outside of a tech blog or review. Rarely ever see windows phones aside from my dad's and the ones that I have.

    Or the Microsoft Store. Besides the MS Store and me and my parents, I hardly ever see Windows phones. They're so rare. In the past two years that I've been using Lumias, I have only twice seen Windows phones out in the wild. Once was a European tourist. I don't know what model she had, but I instantly recognized the camera shutter sound, and then I looked and saw the live tiles. The second time was when I was in a movie theater, and we saw the woman in front of us using a Windows phone.

    Did you have any kind of reaction? Any time I hear the notification sound, my mind is like ooh someone else here has a WP!

    Once I heard that sound, I just had to turn and look. I recognized that distinct shutter sound, but then I was like, "Nah, it couldn't be." Turned to look, and sure enough, she was holding a Windows phone. It's still just so surprising to see someone (besides me and my parents) actually using a Windows phone in an ocean of iPhones and Androids.

    Do you know anyone outside of your immediate family who owns a Windows Phone?
    Yep. Two other people at church have Windows Phones, a 520 and a 1020. I saw a 930 at Christchurch Airport the other day.

    Personally, I think the $30 640 is my best electronic bargain ever!!
    Unfortunately over here in New Zealand, our AT&T equivalent, Spark, is retailing them at NZD 349 or around USD 250 on a prepaid basis. No discount if you go onto a telco plan. Sadly, poor marketing and poor economies of scale mean that ecosystem can't compete well.

    that's even more expensive than in my own country
    Here in Kenya it's going for 180USD

    That was the "good neighbor" policy wasn't it?

    I wanna move in next to you.

    I moved my in-laws to Cricket last November and they each got a Lumia 635.Their very first smart phones. They still tell me how much they like them and how glad they are to have gotten something so darn useful. My mother-in-law is always asking "Cortina" to find things for her.

    Saw a girl at university with the same Lumia 640XL as mine. I wanted to talk to her but wasn't able to at the time.
    I really got excited about it.

    As a girl myself (I'm not speaking for all girls, just myself), if you mentioned something about having the same phone or whatever, I would be impressed. I met a guy earlier this year who had a 640XL, and I had a 640.
    We were in a session together briefly and the teacher told us to exchange numbers. I was a little shocked that he had the same phone. I kept it to myself until we were leaving and I made a remark about me having a smaller version of his phone. He said that he noticed that and he cracked an iPhone joke and I laughed.

    I had a new respect for this dude. Nothing happened after that, sorry guys. Either way, I was impressed.

    Just remembered one of my uncles has an older Lumia, I think an 820 or something? He's had it for years, and says he doesn't want to replace it. I'm hoping when it finally dies, he goes with a newer one. I asked him if he was running 8 or 8.1, he said he had no idea, lol. He's not very tech savvy, but at least he likes it. I think because it's no-nonsense, straightforward, just works reliably. He's not an app person, just calls, text, and checking things on the internet.

    Holy. Libra, you were a lady all along. And all that time I cracked all those dude jokes with you. Eeep. I'm sorry lady!

    And see, we have anecdotal evidence here too Fire29. Gun her down, no - not literally I mean - but get that med student with the cute phone, I mean the cute face, started on a conversation. Okay okay, corny aside, but it makes for these wonderful conversation starters. When you meet a fellow WP-er in a sea of strange people with strange phones. :)

    I have a co-worker who uses lumia 640 and he did buy 2 more 640s (for 30$) recently for gifting. I have also inspired one more co-worker to buy Lumia 950 with me during Bogo offer. Unfortunately, we had to return our phones due to lackluster battery life :( I went back to my 1520 and he went back to his Iphone.
