    I have tons of phones, the lumia, my focus flash, and quantum *sigh* just to name daily drivers.

    However, I've been sorta worried lately. Worried about WP8 and how my lumia's resale value will drop-big time.

    I just sent my Lumia 900 into repair for a camera button lock screen issue and the camera itself displays blue lines during picture taking. As it sounds, Nokia might just send me a new phone. Not for me though.

    Why? I'm selling it. I love the phone, best phone ever, but...

    I'm switching to the first generation Samsung Focus. I simply love the design and it is really easy for me to hold and type on (the best WP yet for that).

    Now your sitting there going, "WTF? He bought a first generation device over the lumia? That's messed up."

    I only paid $36.17. With shipping and everything.

    It's worth it to me.

    And...I can't lie here...I'm taking a break from Windows Phones. Sure, I'll still be using a Windows Phone-but .... drumroll please ... I'm switching to the Google Galaxy Nexus.

    Android isn't as nice as the Windows Phone, but I feel the need to explore. I already own an iPhone. Jelly Bean looks-really good.

    I even bought a matching Nexus 7 tablet (which btw STILL hasn't shipped and I ordered July 3rd).

    So long Windows Phone! Until November.

    Sounds legit to me; i dont think the lumia was that special hardwarewise. I just said so long until wp8 as well. Couldnt handle the lack of attention my att titan was getting.

    Well he didn'thave to be so negative about wp. He's lying ican tell. What a doughebag. Negative people who hate wp in saying it in front of me is an instant hate on my list.

    Still deciding if this dude goes on it.

    That's pretty harsh. It sounds like he wants to wait for 8 to come out before he jumps back. That's his prerogative.

    I'm really enjoying my WP experience so far - but it has its shortcomings like any other device. Frankly I'd like to be in the position to have a long term trial with all the devices and get a feel for them.

    Hmm. I really don't accept people lying in front if me. If they lie. Then they are on my hate list. Dead simple.

    Wow, seriously? Lol. I'm not lying here, I love the Windows Phone, but I'm taking a short break.

    I think Jelly Bean is a bit more broad and customizable, of course I'm staying with two phones, nexus and focus.

    Ever try staring at the same thing for two years? Yeah, it gets old.

    I'm taking a break. I thought I made that clear.

    As soon as WP8 comes out I'll probably get a nokia wp8 device, just chill, k?

    Thanks for your input, I'm really considering a short switch, just to "keep it real".

    That's my point-I've had some great moments with Windows Phone, and always will, but with this whole situation with WP8 being right around the corner, I'm going to take a break.

    Oh sorry mate. It's just I have a girlfriend.she's very strict and doesn't accept lying. I'm basically the same. I am not gonna tolerate again. For what happened last time. Oh ****? I may be popular, stylish and social. But that doesn't mean I'm not strict. And not have high expectations on stuff. But I'm puberty so why not.


    But man. I got anger management. What can you expect? I need to have meds for 5 years. My 1st year :(.

    But I once learned knife throwing. When I was angry. I threw a knife and it went into the wall and right between the person's neck

    I'm sort of in the same situation. I actually started my own thread awhile back.

    I don't blame you for taking a break from Windows Phone. I too am worried about the dropping resale value. I have a Dell Venue Pro, HTC Titan, and HTC Titan II that I am probably going to sell. Plus, the fact that I can't send or receive MMS messages on the HTCs really bothers me.

    I really am going to miss Windows Phone, though. I'll probably be using an Samsung Exhibit II or an iPhone 4 in the meantime. I obviously won't like it, but 4 months? I think I'll manage.

    I'll totally stick around WPCentral though. Got to stay informed about the latest rumors about WP8!

    I had my Android experience while waiting for the Lumia. Up until November I was all BB (the Bold 9700 was the best phone I had ever had). Had an android for three months until Lumia was available in DK. It was thrilling at first, all the apps and options You could dream of, but it just became to messy and I spent more time fine tuning options than using the phone.

    WP is much nicer in everyday use even with the lesser possibilities.

    But enjoy the Android experience. I trust we will be seeing You again ;-)

    Hope you enjoy your Android experience! I think you'll find that with Jelly Bean, Android is no longer what you may think it is.

    I like the Lumia 900, but this camera stinks to high ****. Its way slower and less reliable than my Titan one. I could tolerate the speed if it at least put out images like an iPhone 4 or the Titan. The Nokia support and drive keeps me using it. But for things I like to do like snap images. SUCKS. Nice phone though.

    Oh, yeah that would make me a little upset. And, I AM STICKING WITH WINDOWS PHONE. I'm just exploring. I think I might go for the HTC One X and flash Jelly Bean to it. What goes from there will be discussed with the folks at AndroidCentral! Yes, I already created an account.

    I already have an iPhone 4. It sucks. I'll plain out say it. But...it is nice to have the apps that I need.

    And the Samsung Galaxy S III, I saw that commercial 17 times today in about 3 hours of TV. Didn't seem that the lumia was promoted that well.

    Anyways, so long folks! I'll stick around, I'm just taking a quick exit. I'm coming back. But I'm taking a break.

    LMAO. Yes, you will. But I'm taking a break. And I will say DEAD straight. I'm watching android users. I'm studying their behavior towards Windows Phones.

    I see you're using two OSes.

    I had a BlackBerry 9700 before I got my Lumia 900. The 9700 was getting painful to use, especially its browser. It's in a drawer now, just kept as an emergency backup device.
