    Windows Phone will never be discontinued.

    But assuming it did, I would switch to Blackberry. The OS used in those phones (Blackberry 10) is the best mobile OS after WP and it heavily focuses on security. All other mobile OSs (not counting Nokia's OSes) are plain rubbish.
    I like Blackberry but they are less than 1% market share so you will not see major apps for this platform in a long time or until it dies.

    All recent developments about MS' approach towards their native mobile OS is forcing me to leave this platform when I'll think of buying a new device. I was in hunt of 920/925 earlier and liked those a lot. Those had all potential to be my next wp device, but alas! Hardware is not everything a user needs, its OS and apps too. I get enough apps on wp at the moment but MS is losing their competition with Android or IOS. With 8.1.1, OS is no more as fluid as it was. MS prioritizes updates to their native apps on android or ios. Most of the official apps are still in beta. We have given heck lots of time to MS to improve but guess what, they are all set to lose another faithful user, it appears. Sad, very sad!

    I would switch to the Nokia Z1, with Z Launcher, HERE Maps and PlayStore.
    Never Heard of that phone ! Is it live ?

    What made you ask this question?
    All Microsoft services are available and sometimes better on other OS, that's the beggining of my theory...

    I'd be very sad at first. I really like WP a lot and can't stand android. I love my iPad and iOS but iPhones are so effing expensive off contract and that's the only way I roll with this cell phone stuff. So, dare I say I'd go back to a tracfone/flip phone? I probably would, unless apple ends up with a cheaper device.

    Of course not. Nokia isn't allowed to release a handset 'til 01.01.2016, I think.
    In my opinion, the writing is on the wall. And such a phone could probably outsell WP.

    Probably just keep using my current WP device. Sometimes when Microsoft is particularly stupid I consider switching but the reality is at the moment I find it inconceivable using any other platform. Just despise apple and google too much to use their products. I have simple smartphone meds so the truth is it wouldn't affect me too much.

    Probably something like the Note or the HTC One or the One+One..

    I would love an iPhone but it's too expensive for me when it comes to storage. SD Card slot>

    EDIT: Probably a Blackberry with a physical keyboard. I actually loved my BB Curve before. Then use my iPod classic again.

    I might roll with blackberry for a bit, the passport looks like an interesting new design. not that i need the qwerty keyboard specifically, but i like companies that try out new things. i would probably eventually succumb to ios, as much as i hate having the exact same phone as everyone else around me

    I'd move on with my WP and when it dies, go for Android (in fact I'm already considering that option)

    I am currently evaluating BlackBerry 10 (Q10) and Windows Phone (L520). BlackBerry 10 has the basic and core features I need but is not the OS I wanted from BlackBerry. One the other hand, Windows Phone has features and ecosystem I would want but the core OS does not match my needs at all.

    If Microsoft abandoned Windows Phone, or does not make changes in a timely manner, I would finally commit to BlackBerry 10 and stop complaining about a proper 9930/9650 replacement.

    I would stick to my phone some time, then go for Iphone6. If Jolla were avilable in Croatia, I'd go for that.

    A high end android from htc or Sony seems to be the only viable option for me ,hope htc will still be around at the time though..

    I would probably keep using the phones I have. I have two Windows Phones running 8.1 and one that's still running 8. Also have an HTC One, but I can't see myself using Android as my daily driver. Eventually, I would probably go back to iPhone but get a newer one instead of going back to my iPhone 4.
