    I have a few of them but a recent one was a women who was using an Iphone asked me, is that a Windows Phone? After telling her yes she said they are rubbish! I asked her what's rubbish about them, she said, you cant send texts with them.
    She wasn't actually thinking they were say, difficult to text on, she actually thought Windows Phones don't allow texting. How stupid can you get...
    I heard from my friend - "It does everything excpt for what you need!!" . I reverted, so you mean, your droid wipes the **** out of your **** :-P :-D

    In a Wind Mobile store in Toronto, just a little over a month ago:

    Me: I want to buy this HTC phone with Windows on it.
    Sales agent: That is antiquated
    Me: What do you mean?
    Sales agent: It's not being produced anymore
    Me: So? I don't care about the latest greatest technology I just want this phone
    Sales agent: You don't want it, it's no good....

    ...then, she tries to sell $700+ Samsungs to me.

    I ended up getting the Nokia Lumia 520 instead, from another provider.



    Unrelated conversations:
    Person: My phone is broke. I need a new phone. I hate this iphone
    Me: What phone are you going to buy?
    Person: Another iphone
    Me: ...why?
    Person: I'm just used to it, I don't want to learn new technology.



    (same person, another conversation)
    Person: Oh, you got a new phone. Is it an iphone?
    Me: No, it's a Nokia Windows phone.
    Person: Ew, I hate windows
    Me: Why?
    Person: I don't know, I have a mac at home and use an iphone, I'm just used to it.



    ........how did these people initially introduce themselves to iphones in the first place with that attitude?! There seems to be a lot of the same comments with regards to Apple fans.. they're just "used to it."

    When it was time to replace my company phone, I had a choice been an iPhone and a Windows phone. I chose the Windows phone, and I get the same questions over and over.

    "What's that?"
    "My phone. It's a Windows phone." I reply.
    "Why didn't you get the iPhone?" They ask.
    "Because I actually like being able to see my screen. And I love the feel of this phone." I respond, holding my Nokia 925.
    "Oh." The other person usually responds. They then walk away with a comment like "I thought you were an Apple user."
    To which I'm happy to respond with "I was. I'm not anymore."

    It feels nice not to be in the majority, and I don't mind if it stays that way.

    But to be honest... they aren't that wrong. They're just not informed about the new "update".
    They still think WP8 is not that different from WP7, and we all know how bad WP7 was.
    Bad? It was awesome, revolutionary really.

    Just to change it up, there were 5 people looking at Windows Phone at the ATT store yesterday, not one person at any other kiosk! All amazed at how beautiful they look. It's getting there!

    Fixed:

    When I upgraded to Lumia 920, I told my friend and his comments were

    Friend: Why didn't you take iphone?
    Me: Because I don't like it
    Friend: But you should have taken iphone
    Me: If I don't like it then how can I take it
    Friend: iPhone is better
    Me: Do you know anything about L920
    Friend: No
    Me: Then how can you compare iphone with a product about which you don't know anything
    EX-Friend: But you should have bought iphone (walked away)

    Just people know iPhone. Like my 75 year old great-aunt asked "Is that an iPhone?". It is annoying, but sometimes you can't argue.
    Don't sweat it. If it comes to fists, you can take her.

    So I was hanging out at a store today and heard this...
    Guy, "I want to add a line to my account for my gf, her ATT contract is up."
    Rep, "Okay great! We have X, Y, and Z phones on sale right now."
    Guy, "Honey you need to get the GS3 like me."
    Girl, "I wanna look around a little bit."

    So she goes over to the Windows Phone wall and is playing with the 8X. She's talking about how cool it is and how nicely it's built.

    Guy, "Oh, that's a Windows Phone. They're totally junk. They're not even worth the parts they're made out of."
    Rep, "Wow man, that's pretty harsh. Its actually really cool, just needs a few more apps."
    Guy, "Microsoft has totally ruined everything with this metro crap. C'mon hun. Get the GS3."
    I decided to chime in, "I have that HTC and it's the best phone I've ever carried, way better than the GS3 I have for work."
    Girl, "I guess I'll just go with the S3. In black."

    I was literally blown away. Like, you're so in bed with Google that you can't even let your girlfriend get a phone she likes, or at least let her get information about it?
    As strange as it may sound, YOU may have been what made her go with the Android. The guy is clearly the insecure type. She may have been thinking: Do I buy the phone I like a little better and put up with his pouting or claiming I took the side of a stranger over him. OR do I buy the Android and keep him a while longer to see if he can become a man?

    I agreed with you, Android is a better mature mobile OS. I migrated to WP8 after the purchase of my Nokia Lumia 1520 and I love it. The only thing I miss from Android is the ability to upload docs files from the browser. I hope Microsoft add that feature in a future OS upgrade.
    actually you can do that with IE 11 in WP 8.1.. I tried replying to an email with the attachment once.. IE has an in built file picker that serves the cause.

    Oh I know, but no one wants to do that. They go on the store and see "$9.99" for Weave and get all pissed without even noticing the Try option.
    I felt the same when I didn't know much about the store when I saw wpcentral was 0.99. Then I noticed try is like free version without taking more space in the store.

    the thing i keep hearing from android users is that windows phone doesn't have background wallpapers. Even though the lock screen does, my brother hates wp due to this reason. Although he doesn't really like wp in general for other differences, but that one seems silly to me.

    Typical clueless iPhone users/iSheep.
    I feel that it is has more to do with Microsoft not educating people about the awesome products and services they offer. Every product has its own selling point.

    It is very much this. Some of the reputation you can't help no matter what, but it would help if Microsoft ran a Windows Phone ad in the last 3 months. I haven't seen one since early 2014 when they were still pushing the Lumia 1020. I don't think the Icon or 1520 ever even got a TV ad. On the other hand, Apple is still running ads for the iPhone, and it hasn't been updated in nearly a year. Not to mention that Apple doesn't even need the advertising help, anyway.

    Agreed, Apple is backed by challenges and needs little advertising compared to Microsoft. Steve Jobs won millions of people with his work, he challenged stats quo and won. Long ago Bill Gates was considered similar, although not that popular. But the era of Steve Ballmer ended everything, he laughed publicly on the iPhone when it was released back in 2007, we all know what happened after that. I think he had no vision of what was happening. Luckily the new CEO is making quite a few changes to keep company focused (Yet no advertisements! ).

    So the other day my SD card was having issues after I dropped my phone. This one person I know who's always on me about liking Windows Phone claimed iPhones are better because they don't have SD cards.

    It's funny that no one ever said stupid thing about my phone. Lots of them are like "is that Nokia Lumia? Show me. It's beautiful, if it ran Android, I'd buy it. Do you have any problems with WP?"

    At school people know me as Nokia fan, so everyday new question with now student or teacher, the problem is that I said know there's no issue or bugs, and guess what, my teacher bought an 830 and it keeps rebooting!!!I love WP, but MS doesn't.
