    There's a guy on here that works for Verizon and he has said Verizon should have WP8 devices.

    I'm hoping we have info about a Verizon Nokia WP8 fairly soon. I've given up on Android and really don't want to go back to iOS unless I have to.

    I too am hoping for a Nokia WP8 on Verizon, especially a pure view.

    yeah this time I hope MS/Nokia don't have any dumb exclusive deals that block a particular phone from coming to verizon.

    Midrange HTC WP8 is all but confirmed. Looks like the Incredible 4G/One S.

    I'd be happy if it really is devices, plural. Having only one option with the Trophy kind of sucks.

    To be honest, if that is all Verizon is going to have I won't be a WP8 user. I really want something with a 4.7 inch screen, preferably made by Nokia. If it seems like Verizon will get a pureview I will probably wait for that. I'm not locked into Nokia, but I'm not going to get a phone with a 4 inch screen. Hopefully something I like will come to Verizon before Christmas.

    I am taking the opposite approach. If that is all Verizon is going to have I won't be a Verizon customer. With unlimited calling plans on most carriers now I see no reason to stay. I was only there because all my family and most friends had Verizon so it was free to call them (well really it was so my wife could call her friends and family, I barely talk on the phone).

    I switched to Verizon from att about four months ago. There phone selection sucks. If they don't get a good wp8 phone I'm going back to att. Only reason I'm using android now is because Verizon didn't have a wp7 phone I liked

    I get better coverage with Verizon so I won't be switching. I like nice phones, but being able to use them is more important.

    I used AT&T for years, but recently moved to a new house in a horrible deadspot, and the Microcell barely worked. After a few months battling AT&T (they even sent someone out to inspect the cell towers,) they let me out of my contract with no ETF, and I ported to Verizon. I ended up buying a trophy off Craigslist because I didn't want to use my discounted device on the Trophy because at the time a Nokia WP7 device was supposed to hit January 2012, but it was cancelled. An insider I know tipped me off on the Nokia/VZW device, so I waited patiently and then it was cancelled.

    Needless to say, I FREAKING hate the Trophy at this point. It's slow/incredibly outdated from a hardware perspective.

    My same insider contact has given me good news about upcoming devices for Verizon, but I won't get excited until it's officially unveiled.

    And may I ask what your contact has shared with you? I'm in a similar situation as you are in and am waiting (impatiently) for the WP8's to arrive at Verizon.

    I was told MONTHS ago (well before the event was reported) that Nokia would LAUNCH a WP8 device for Verizon on September 5th; however, as time progressed, it became clear that it would be unveiled on September 5, not launched. What I am hearing is it will launch second week of November... which is disappointing. I'm not sure I can wait that long. Hopefully it comes out earlier. I think they are unveiling phones early, so they can be included in holiday gift guides, etc. All that stuff is completed early fall.

    I hope your source is right. I really want a Nokia WP.

    We are for sure getting a Nokia but the only one I've heard about in detail is the "Trophy 2." But they're saying that VZW is moving away from the iPhone (due to subsidies) and we've publically stated that we're going WP not BlackBerry so honestly I would expect at least 3 WPs from us.

    Also, I love my Trophy. It runs better than any Droid we sell. Hence why I still have it.

    After using my VZ Galaxy Nexus for about a month with it's 4.65" screen, one thing I do know and agree with scottcraft on, I will not go back to a smaller screen, I don't think even 4.3". So, VZ is going to have to come in with some "high end" WP8 device(s) before I switch back from my Galaxy. I think they will, eventually, but, I don't anticipate it being before the end of the year.

    My local VZ dealer (not a corporate store) pretty much says the same thing. They'll tell you up front they push the androids because of the subsidies with the iPhone. The manager of the store though who I've dealt with quite a bit though, still does not talk much highly about WP.

    My district manager has actually played around with the HTC phone, so that leads me to believe that a big VZW/WP8 launch is going to happen. And we sell Office 365 right out of the retail stores so it makes sense.

    I own a galaxy s3 now and I can wait for a wp8 phone to go along with the surface I'm going to buy. Hope Verizon doesn't screw this up and give us some crappy phones phones

    That would be an amzing shift in company stragety for Big Red, and a HUGE Victory for Microsoft and WP manufacturers. Imagine Verizon and AT&T pushing WP instead of the iPhone (I am sure we all are familier with the "AT&T is pushing anything but the iPhone due to it's subsidies" story, right?), and offering actual CHOICES???

    Verizon is a much better provider in my area, and the Verizon shop is locally owned and has much better customer relations because of that. I am so unimpressed with my local AT&T store, we go 20 miles to the next big town for service. So why am I at AT&T? Why, Windows Phones, of course. Get some options on Big Red and the service contract will run out and I could actually pick from devices AND providers.

    Not to mention Sprint would have no choice but to get on the WP band wagon or else let the two bullies on the block get stronger without them!!

    I need to calm down... nothing confirmed... relax... breathe...

    *giggles anyway*

    I guess I am out of the loop" but can some one tell me what pure view is? I hear a lot of talk about it. I to use a trophy and hoping for a better choice but I must say that this is my first wp and never had any problems.
    Thanks.

    Pure View is that monster camera setup Nokia released coupled with Symbian at the beginning of this year, has a 41 megapixel sensor, though it uses to scale down and get a remarkably clean picture at 5MP.

    Which goes along with my only real complaint about my Trophy, the camera(s). They could honestly release the same phone with a ffc and a competitive rear camera (think iPhone 4S level) and I would buy that and be happy.
