    I still have my Lumia 800. There is nothing out there that really makes me want to buy another phone right now. I kind of like the 925 but not enough to change. I like the 920 too but its just a bigger 800 to me so again, I'll stick with what I have. When my 800 breaks or stops holding a decent charge I'll see what's out there. Whatever I end up getting when the time comes I will think is awesome for a week then it too will just be a phone to keep until it breaks :-)

    As of right now, I am waiting for the unlocked Latin American 1520 or the 32GB 1520 At&t variant.

    People make their decisions based on their wants or needs. New is usually better but to some may not be that much better. I'm glad I made the change from 7.8 to 8.0 but I was in no hurry to do so. 7.8 for the most part was working for me and I kept using my 900 about 6 months after I was eligible for my upgrade. My wife has a 920 and while I liked it I didn't want to get a year old phone so I waited until something I wanted came alone. To be honest if Nokia hadn't released the 1520 I'd still be using my 900 and waiting.

    In the end we all make the choices that we believe is best for us.

    I went from a HTC Trophy on Verizon to the Lumia 928, which lasted about 5 months before I dropped it on the interstate and watched it cause a 9 car pile up before it finally broke (kidding about the toughness, but it did get lost). Now I'm back to the Trophy while I wait for the Lumia 929/Icon to be released. It kills me to see all the cool stuff coming out for WP8 but I'm being responsible and waiting for my money to pile back up before I go buy a new phone off contract.

    Post count 1 and you registered today. And this is what you contributed? Suggesting BB10? Oohhhhkkk...


    As for WP7, I still have my Lumia 800 as a back up phone. But I think I may sell it now that I picked up the 520 for less than $50. But many people are still on contract for another year. And the 520 os technically a downgrade hardware wise from a phone like the Lumia 900. So, even at that cheap price, many people may not feel it's worth the switch yet.
    Hey, I didn't officially registered today (look at my profile), I am also a former WP7 rom cook on xda. I still like WP, but it has it's shortcomings. (Secretly also loving BB10, don't tell anyone)

    Well when lumia 820 is $235 which is the same price as 900 does it really seem that expensive
    I guess everyone needs someone to look down on. And I just found that person.

    Glad to see you here. I had one of your ROMs on my previous Titan, nice work.

    I've had my Titan for over 2 years and it's still my daily driver on AT&T. I recently purchased a Lumia 521 to test out T-Mobile and I like what I see (both T-Mobile and WP8). I am looking for my next phone but it's not going to be on contract. And I want to switch my 2 lines to T-Mobile. I'm probably waiting for a 929-spec'd phone that has full T-Mo bands. So I have no idea how long I may have to wait. The 521 will go to my wife when we switch to T-Mo. Honestly, my Titan runs fast and still works great...

    Only $235 dollars you say? Awesome, why doesn't everyone get one? In fact, why don't we all fly to the moon on our jet-pigs and drink champagne from hollowed out dinosaw bones coated in gold and platinum?

    Not everyone lives in the same socio-economic bubble, not everyone can pull hundreds of dollars out of their pockets at the drop of a hat. Not everyone lives in America, not everyone is rich, not everyone wants that phone.

    That's why.
    I'll tell you something though. I totally get what you're saying. But the very MICROSECOND I see these folks signing new contracts with big carriers like AT&T, and paying thousands of dollars over the 2 year period I will call it what it is: bad financial management. If you can afford $150/mo on over-priced cell service, you can most certainly afford to save money for an off-contract phone over a few months.

    Contracts on WP7.5/7.8 phones may still be locked. I know my contract on my original Titan just recently ended. I remember buying it Black Friday weekend, actually. Either $1 or $0.01, can't remember. Haha.
    I paid $100 but I think I got them to give me the $100 back, so it was free. Worked out great. And I will not switch to a smaller phone. 1520 may be too big though. And I need the RM-938 to switch to T-Mo anyway. So I wait.

    The contract for my Lumia 900 ended in October, but it works fine for me at this point. I'm waiting for the new year to see what Nokia has in store for Window Phone 8.1. I'd prefer to buy a WP 8.1 device as soon as they come out instead of waiting for the upgrade on, say, a Lumia 920.
    Yes, I would like to wait for a native 8.1 device, especially if 8.1 will bring a rush of hardware changes. Sorry for the post barrage...interesting thread.

    I bought my dad a 2nd hand Lumia 900 for ~200 dollars because it was the best device I could get him with a big screen and a terrific GPS. He would've liked the phone to have our language, Romanian, but oh well. (I have to check XDA for that)

    Some 2 days after I received the phone I found the L625 for ~175 dollars. That would've been the better deal but it wasn't available at the needed time. Even the L720 was 230. It just wasn't in my budget :(

    So there you have a reason why there is one more person "stuck" on WP7.

    When you have the Lumia 520/521 going for less than a $100 off contract, theres really not an excuse to PURCHASE a WP7 device
    that is true except then they will become wp8 people complaining about why this app won't work with their phones....so perhaps they don't want the cheap devices.

    The Lumia 800 is beautiful. Almost as beautiful as the N9 before it.

    And that my friend, is why people will stick with their Lumia 800s.
    It's just that...beautiful.

    My cousin cannot upgrade until May, so he continues to endure his Lumia 900 with a cracked screen that I warned him not to get (suggested paying insurance $100 for his Focus and saving the upgrade for WP8).

    I mean there's lumia 820 and 920 that is like a direct update to 800 & 900. Look in amazon, they have gone cheaper. Please stop suffering and upgrade :'(
    sometimes its money, but not always.
    i am using Lumia 720 right now, but still feel that my Lumia 800 was excellent. though Lumia 800 & 900 comes with WP7, they are excellent hardware and fulfill basic needs. people doesnot change handsets just bcoz updated phones are available in the market. if that so, u got to change it almost everyday.

    It is logistically much more difficult to get modern high end specs into a small device. Apple does it, but they're forced to because they believe (at least for now) that 4" is as big as a phone should be. WP & Android sell bigger phones, so they don't have to compact the internals.

    Ya, that's one of the reasons I keep mine. But now that I have the 1020, I feel like I have an equally beautiful phone. So I don't need to keep the 800.

    Two of my friends are still under contract. As badly as they want to upgrade, they're stuck until late spring 2014.

    i will NOT UPGRADE TO A WINDOWS 8 PHONE anytime soon.

    i have a windows 7.8 optimus LG phone, which is one of the 3 or 4 models that has a HARDWARE KEYBOARD.

    att-lg-optimus-windows-phone-7-smartphone-keyboard.jpg

    i refuse to use touch controls for typing. it's pointless for me, and a waste of time.

    unless, they come out with a windows 8 phone, with a DEDICATED SLIDER keyboard, i won't even THINK about getting a newer phone.

    also, i only use my phone for phone calls, and texting, and music playback. i have NO USE for internet or data access, cameras, etc.
    so any of those features on 'newer' phones don't help me.

    later
