    <3 webos! I have just converted myself after upgrading my PC to 8. I hated ios and Android left me wanting. I've only had my Lumia a couple of days but I love it. I will probably be converting my husband and parents before too long. I got my father into webos, and I think WP feels closer to it than what the other options have.

    Three people converted. One returned to iPhone after about a month. The other two after about 8-9 months. But hey... That's the beauty of having more than one way to skin a cat.
    Why did they go back?

    My friends and i don't really talk about tech and gadgets much when we're out so I can't say I have been selling WP too much. I'd say maybe one cousin and one friend have bought WP after I showed it to them.

    Sadly, only one, in my friend Irene, who has a Lumia 710. I talked her into going with a WP in late 2011. Tried talking my friend Jennifer into getting one as well, and she was interested in doing so, but alas, she just ordered an iPhone 5 from T-Mobile the other day. It will be interesting if I can convince my mom to get a WP, but right now I'm trying to convince her to first get a cell phone in general, lol!

    Zero.

    Unless MSFT would like to pay me a salary I take no responsibility to convert anyone to anything. G doesn't work for free.
    Word!

    (Haven't even managed to convert myself to WP8. Too many naggy little issues that make we want to smash the thing to bits on a daily basis. Does that mean I'm responsible for -1 converts?)

    i converted myself. after using iphone for years and then 1 year with android.
    i also converted my boss (well she play with my phone, loved it, and bought exactly the same model, 920, just diff. colour). another friend loved it too and may get one as well.

    it's not about how many converts become money for you, but more people use it, more apps eventually will come out.

    I usually happy with smartphones which has Symbian OS installed, but since it's getting old, and I need an upgrade for my phone (my previous phone is 6700 slide), I see another option that is much better than any other OS: Windows Phone. So I checked up there, and the most cheapest WP8 phone is L620. So I bought it, and it's my primary phone now ;)

    I've converted people by giving them my older handsets. gave my friend a lumia 710, gave my other friend a lumia 900 and got my brother a new contract with the htc 8s. im sure we've all converted people if they see our phones in the street, or the bus, or anywhere out in public too!

    Two, my mother (my old Focus) and my sister (620), who preferred it over any Android or iOS device.

    WP family!

    i've converted myself after 6-7 months using Android...i had this 2011 low-end device and despite being updated to ICS, the screen was starting to feel too small (3") and i was getting sick of Android and all the lag, force closes...that's when i found Lumia 620 while looking for a new phone and just thought "yeps, this is my next phone!"
    couldn't have made a better choice <3 the device is lovely, doesen't even feel i'm using a budget phone! also i love WP8 and how it runs smooth even on low specs!

    i'm trying to convince a close friend to convert :) imma do my best!
    unfortunately my classes only start in september so i'll have to wait a bit longer to show off my Lumia...but perhaps that's better, till then i'll have my colorful shells (my 620 is black) and WP will have improved a lot more hopefuly and many new apps can appear so it will be easier to convert ;)

    I converted myself, twice actually, but I switched back to Android both times! The first time I tried was a Lumia 710, but the app shortage made the phone useless to me. The second time I actually had a Lumia 920, but the app shortage combined with the immature OS sent me back. I'm open to trying again sometime down the road when WP matures.

    I haven't converted anyone else. I make it a point to NOT convert people to a different OS than what they're currently using. I'm afraid I would be blamed for any issues they would have, and anyone switching to WP8 from iOS or Android is likely to be unhappy with the lack of apps.

    wow, 4 people in a row? I have only converted 1 friend, so far, but there are some of my friends attracted to the simple design made by Windows Phone. So, I'll wait for 'em. LOL

    Lack of the app isn't the reason -- I think -- for people to switch, but it's about the quality of the apps.
    But, I'm curious of what you mean about 'shortage', is that something about the short-circuit problem, or, maybe, about its (the device) age?

    An Android user calls wp immature. What are you doing here? You should've been searching for the updates that bring more copy feature from other OS'es. I haven't seen any OS more immature than Android.
    Also Android apps suck. Nasty design (if you can call it "design")
