    I know I was watching a crime show when I noticed they were all using Windows phones, but I can't seem to remember witch show. May have been Bones or NCIS.

    Wish we had more Windows phones to see and talk about.
    Today if someone woke up in the morning then went shopping for a Windows phone where would that person go?

    The options for a casual smartphone buyer aren't present.
    For this reason I've always held on to my opinion that phones running Windows should have attacked the impulse market with unlocked low cost semi-disposable devices.

    I'm probably wrong besides that train has left the station anyway.
    I can just go to most large mobile shops in the city and ask for lumias - last time I checked, they had the 640, 540, 640xl, 530, 535, 435, 735, 830, 730, 635. If I was to check the large supermarkets, they would also have the new 950 and 950xl going at 520USD and 570USD respectively. And yes, 550/650 are also available in the city shops

    I am the only person I know or even ever see with a windows phone. I tell me friends and coworkers and they didn't even know that Windows made phones. But I love them my daily driver is a 950XL DS and also have 950. Hopefully this won't be the last windows phone I can ever get. I have hope that Microsoft will turn things around for windows 10 mobile. I guess time will tell.

    I have definitely seen them on all versions of NCIS. I can't remember if I've seen the phones, but I know on "Arrow" they had an episode showing off the 1st Surface tablet. Felicity used it to hack into Malcom Merlin's servers. It was cool, but highly laughable, lol. My dad has one of those. He loves it, but c'mon, a hacking tool? MS pushed that shameless plug a little hard...

    Helped a friend along to a 950XL. Complete with a dock too. Acquired a couple of unicorn 1520s in the process. On their last legs. Lets just say made for two happy campers altogether. :) ^_^

    Noticed a guy with a 540 at a shop I usually go to.
    Oh and there was a guy there who mistaked my Lumia 640XL for a black Note 7.
    I was like, "Yo, I don't carry around grenades."
    Just kidding, I didn't say that.

    Maybe he was just saw my Lumia from the different angle or something.
    But it was probably the big size of the 640XL that caused it.

    I attended an orchestra concert this past weekend and saw someone sitting in the row in front of me with what looked like a white Lumia 530. That is the first time I've seen a Windows Phone in the wild in many months - probably over a year.

    Saw a guy in my college with a Lumia 920. The phone was pretty good looking. At first, I thought it was some Windows 7 phone because of the old Windows logo.
    Oh and the guy also had a Samsung. :P

    I have never seen anyone using a Windows Phone except for my sister who has bought one recently and persuading me to shift from Android to Windows now. There are a number of Windows Phone users and it's not like WP are the rarely used phones; however, in my area, I feel the same lol.

    I would see them every now and then back in 2013 and 2014. Mostly Lumia 520/521, but on occasion Lumia 928. One person at work had one sitting in the next row over from me. It was the HTC-8X with 4GB and he absolutely hated it having "no apps".

    I don't know what Microsoft was thinking with "retrenching". Marketshare of ~5% is way better than zero right now. No "OEM partners" have stepped up, and almost no phones are available for purchase through carriers. What a shame. Moreover, we lost excellent designs, bright colors, best-in-class cameras, and most of all customers who bought into WP8 phones and were abandoned.

    Two weeks ago when I was in Las Vegas for a conference I met a guy with a 640 from London. I showed him my 950XL and he said "One of the very few that use Windows!" We talked for a little about what we liked and disliked. It was cool seeing someone else with a Windows phone in the wild.

    I have yet to see anyone in my town with a WP only myself. It's sad. Though I enjoy the compliments I get from people asking me what phone I have. I've had one person mistaken my phone as a iPhone. Rather laughable. Though at times when I'm on a bus I do look over to see what phones other use.

    I travel for work, and I started noticing them every once in while... but over the past year, not a single one.
