    Hey All,

    I have the Icon on Verizon. Obviously I dont want to risk my only device on trial software, so I was thinking of buying a cheaper windows phone to load it on. Can anyone tell me of a cheap phone I can put my Verizon Sim card into and have It work? I don't care if I lose 4g LTE while using it, I just want to be able to switch back and forth and give windows 10 a try.

    Thanks

    If you just wanted to give the os a go, you could always just get a 520 for $20 if they're still that cheap? The network wouldn't matter as you'd be able to use all features barring calls and messaging.

    I'm looking for a phone that works on Verizon network for Calls, text and data. I just dont care if it is 4G or only 2G. But I do want a phone that works on the go.

    Probabl6 the 822 would be your best bet. It just received the Denim upgrade and is still a decent phone. It would be a good test bed for the W10 experiment.

    The Lumia 822 (maybe 928), ATIV Odyssey might be nice burner phones.

    If you have a ICON, you might want to find a phone that uses a NANO SIM (like the ICON) or you have to use adapters (not always dependable)... Something to keep in mind....

    Out of the Verizon models, that if you want to stay close to the ICON as possible, I would say the 928 but, don't believe it uses a Nano SIM, a larger sim, so an adapter would work..

    Check ebay or swappa for a used one, I bet you could get one for sub $100 and it will give you LTE, etc...

    Buying a new phone just for the sake of testin a beta OS?
    I'd never do such a thing.
    But if you really want to do it, why not just check the Verizon website (if you want to buy a phone from Verizon).
    And if you're only looking for a cheap phone, try some of the low-end ones. 435, 530 or 630, it depends on how much low are you willing to go.
