    Hi Guys. My dad had an iphone 5 recently and returned it because it had scratches out of the box and the maps features doesn't even work in NZ where I live(recently moved to NZ). He's not back to apple again. So I showed him Windows phone 7 and Windows phone 8 and Windows 8. He liked what he saw. he liked the simple and straight foward look He's no teche at all. He said that functionality is much more important than the looks itself he liked creativity most of my classmate and friends do like what MS's is doing so they are all getting Windows phones because they all also have an Xbox's. So My friends, former maths Classmates and Dad does like the live tiles and they really do think functionality is much more important than the looks itself. Then I showed the the phones and their jaws dropped. they really liked the phones. especially the 8X green and the yellow Nokia Lumia 920. They also thought that the colours are super cool. I agreed :)

    most of them are getting the 8X,8S,820 and the

    PS: I got my dad to switch to Wp, almost all my subjects classmates. 7 classes with different people with more than 121 people in my classes. 10 teachers are going to switch to Wp because of Xbox, live tiles and the phones colours. Windows phone are basically the new cool style in my school(high school for US or called college in NZ)

    It's not just young people who like the colours of the phones and the live tiles.

    One of my friends is going to get a red 920 when it's available. She is around my age. I don't have any kids, but I'm in the same age bracket as parents of teenagers.

    I've tried convincing the Video Game Society, they're not receptive. Heck, I couldn't even get my ex-girlfriend to switch while I was with her... I am the least persuasive person period. One person did get a Radar but that's because my TITAN sold itself... he lost it and got a One X instead...

    My teenage son 17 wants a new iPhone to replace his current one. I won't let him have it because I'm using his upgrade to get a L920. He will be getting my 900 and it's a happy camper. I'm confident once he has it for a few days he'll love it, but we'll see.

    Because I can convince people. also we raised awareness around the school and my dad's vodafone store

    for the intermediate part. just 11-13 year old. there's year 7 and 8. so basically you stay there for just 2 years.

    I learned to convince people when I was a young kid. I even convince my mum to buy me a a laptop for no reason :).
