    Do you know anyone outside of your immediate family who owns a Windows Phone? I have only seen one WP out in the wild and that person traded her Lumia 900 for an Android phone in like a month. Otherwise I have not seen a single person who owned a WP, but apparently there are a few million of them out there. It makes me wonder where these people are who own them. I assume more people here have a WP, so they must exist, right?
    Yes, yes I do. Most of these people I know and got them to switch, but one has a 900 and I never knew her till she saw my 900 (before I got a 920).

    Depends how you measure:

    By current install base of all BBRY and MSFT devices, then yes, BBRY was always 3rd.

    By current install base of only BB10 and WP devices, then no, BB is 4th.

    By monthly sales numbers of new devices, then no, BB is 4th.

    I've seen sources for your first point, but since BB has not released any sales figures at all yet for the Z10 and won't until the 28th, what source are you using for #2 and 3?

    I know a girl from school that has a Lumia 710 and I've seen a janitor with an 8X. My neighbor also recently got an 8X and I think really likes it! So that's a total of only 3. My whole family has iPhones aside from me.

    I've been told my BlackBerry Curve 8520 is better than my HTC TITAN (and heck, if she saw my Nokia Lumia 920, she would say the BB8520 is still better), just because the latter runs Windows and the former doesn't. She also said her HTC Wildfire was better than the HTC TITAN, again because the TITAN runs Windows, the Wildfire doesn't... I'm like "Seriously, you're saying your old budget phone and my old budget phone both run better and have better specs than my new FLAGSHIP device..." And despite the phone running smooth as anything (thus debunking the running better argument), she still insisted that her Wildfire was better, just because it wasn't a Windows Phone. I gave up at this point, because I really wanted to punch the university building down in frustration...
    Blackberry is dead already, so let her be.

    I only know me and my girlfriend personally, I do know some people on xbox live with them though. I'm never going to convince people to switch because I convinced 11 people to switch and they all came to me for help and ended up going back to other OS's. 9 to Android and 2 went back to iPhone.

    A friend of mine has a black Lumia 920. A friend of his has a black 900.

    I've seen one other person in the wild with a WP. It was a Samsung Focus, and that was back last August.

    Let's resurrect this thread :)

    recently I found that a friend of mine has an 8S, that officially made him the first person I know that has a WP whom I did NOT persuade to switch ;) That makes 6 in my friend-list. Not counting several people in public I noticed sporting mostly 920 and 900s. And my sister wants one, she loves my 920, even loaded WP8 launcher on her low-end droid. ;)

    I have not seen one Windows Phone in Australia, yet alone have any friends who have heard of WP prior to me telling them about it.

    Oh well...

    I know a friend with a Radar who does not like it at all. To his surprise, I offered to buy it.

    A lot of my friends are considering them to my extreme delight. Two of my friends have 920's, someone I have a club with asked me about my phone about a month ago. I think he's considering buying a WP8. And a friend who plays Ultimate with me asked me if he should buy a WP8. Guess what I said.

    Yes, definitely. I leaned him towards the 928.

    My best friend has a Yellow 920 (upon my insistence), another X colleague bought a 920 (upon my insistence) and yet another person I met through another forums booked his Nexus 4 and then cancelled it and is now again buying a 920, again upon my insistence. Also, if you count family members, my wife and dad both have a 720.

    ANd of course me, 820.

    I salute you for being the only one in your circle of friends who'll get the Sleeping Screen.

    As for me, a couple of friends got Lumias because I kept bragging about the Facebook integration ;)

    I have one friend, my sister, and my uncle who use Windows Phone. I've seen a few around campus, but for the most part mine is the only one I see daily.

    I know of one friend and his wife who have Lumia 920s. I bought his old iPhone 4 to give to my wife for her first smartphone (she had been using an iPod Touch so it was the most comfortable option for her).

    I should be getting my Lumia 521 delivered in 4 days. It will be my first (and hopefully not my last) Windows Phone.
