    "LAS VEGAS--Verizon isn't holding a press conference at CES, but that hasn't stopped the carrier from spilling a ton of announcements on the show's official Press Day.

    Just before it showed off the Motorola Droid 4, a Droid Razr in purple, and the new Droid Razr Maxx this morning, Big Red also unveiled a new BlackBerry world phone with the Curve 9370. "

    Make your Trophy last another year, or time to move on folks.

    Thinking of giving up my Verizon unlimited data to move to at&t...I never use more than 2 GB per month anyway. At least they acknowledge the existence of new Windows phones...Like I have said before, Verizon is a Droid shop.

    This sucks...the used Trophy I got has lost the accelerometer so a new phone would be great...I have my remaining NE2 and don't want to waste it on a Trophy...and loathe going back to Android. And I want a bigger screen if anything, so the postage stamp sized iPhone is out. Thanks VZW....:@

    That's it. I'm not leaving Verizon, so I'm willing to wait and see what happens. It helps that I'm not due an upgrade for a while.

    I think it stinks the most that we are stuck with a gen 1 phone. No gyroscope, no faster gpu, no acceptable camera. Terrible! We've got to be able to do something besides leaving, right?

    Carrier: Verizon Wireless
    Phones: HTC 8X & HTC Trophy & Samsung Focus
    PC:Dell Studio XPS 1640

    My app: Plant Guide

    Spitfire 4.0, my HTC Imagio, rest in peace.

    That Titan II would be an awefully good reason to jump to AT&T.

    Sadly, I don't think so. Contracts are the only thing they care about. So unless you're willing to leave they really don't care. I've already decided to leave if they don't have anything new by the time my contract is up.

    By the way, if you do decide to leave, make sure you tell the Verizon folks why you're leaving. It's the only way they'll listen.

    Try picking a used one up off craigslist or something to hold you over.

    I'm not leaving either. I am not giving up unlimited data and much better coverage in my area + a discount through my work on my verizon plan. No wp(yet) is worth me leaving.

    I ordered my Trophy the day it came out and was thinking about trying to early upgrade if they got a new Nokia phone. On one hand, maybe it's good to wait for the Apollo upgrade with dual core and higher resolution. On the other hand, what's the chance that Verizon will get one of those when they're introduced. Had to wait months between WP7 launch and the release of the Trophy. Verizon is annoying, but like others I'm not sure I want to give up unlimited data (even though I've never gone over 2GB yet) and (maybe) superior coverage where I live. They annoy me though.

    Even then they wouldn't listen lol. VZW is just out of order. They wanted WP to have LTE, well they have announced one and all VZW can talk about is android this and android that.

    In their mind everyone wants a droid or an iPhone. But everyone doesn't. At least I don't.

    The Nokia Lumina 900/Ace has LTE, AT&T is getting it but, there is a lot of rumors about Verizon getting it...

    I'm crossing my fingers on that one, that is one bad a$$ phone (worth signing a 2 year for)

    If I didn't have the unlmited data and a NE2 for $100, I would think of switching to AT&T too because that 900 is going to be a HOT WP7 device. The flagship WP7 device.

    I can't see Verizon bringing a Nokia WP7 to their network unless they are able to keep Nokia Drive off the device. Competes directly with their VZ Navigator offering.

    If that were the problem then they would have no Droids on their shelves either, every droid has free turn by turn with Google navigation.

    First post...

    I work for Verizon Wireless as a sales rep. I get ragged on left and right at meetings/kick offs when I pull out my Trophy. I have it as my personal phone and I have a Droid Razr for my work phone. Honestly, my Trophy responds way faster and is just a smoother experience.

    Verizon isn't down with WP7.5 for a few reasons that I've gathered:
    1) Bad aftertaste from dealing with Windows Mobile 5.5/6.5. I'm reletively new to the company and all I hear about is how terrible Windows phones are. Most of the senior reps haven't even touched a Trophy because Windows Mobile ruined it for everyone.
    2) Verizon basically made Android what it is via funding Google hardcore to compete with the iPhone. I think they're kind of cocky because of the success they've gotten from the "Droid" name.

    Also, I can't say too much, but there is a new Windows Phone is our promotional material. Literally no details about it at all, but it's shown in our 2012 LTE line up. Looks a lot like the Trophy.
    RSM for VZW
    Phone history: HTC Trophy, Droid Razr, Curve 9370, HTC Rezound, HTC 8X Blue, HTC 8X VZW Employee Edition, LG Intuition, Nokia Lumia 928 White, LG G2, Droid Ultra VZW Employee Edition, iPhone 5S

    Yeah, thank you very much Honestabebread. It's nice to finally have hope again. I've been increasingly tempted to go over to "the dark side" even though I have been satisfied with Verizon in every other area.

    I'll wait on big red...

    This is after 2 years with a Palm pre. I would love a hot shot Nokia phone but for now it's more about the OS and the network than the device.

    I went with a Palm to tide me over until the iphone dropped on VZW but somewhere along the way Apple lost me and Google didn't get me.

    I recommend we VZW subscribers start hammering them on your account comment page. Perhaps we can get their attention? I love this OS and the phone experience but would really love to have more choices of windows Phones from them. :@

    Let's face it, Verizon is a Android/iOS store ... nothing else.

    I love my Trophy, although I would love a Titan more. I believe the momentum is with Windows phones and that Verizon will be very sorry they didn't get in early. ;)

    I too am awaiting a better selection of WP phones at Verizon. My contract ends in one month and I am debating the next move for my wife and I. I really like the Windows Mango and would like to synch my business/homelife to it. I like the simplicity and smooth way it works. My wish is for Lumia 710, so it looks like I would have to switch carriers for that. Stopped by Verizon last week to have them check out my Samsung work phone and browsed about. I was quickly guided to the Motorola Droids and given an enthusiastic sales pitch. When I asked about the lone WP phone they had nothing to say about it at all. Even the BlackBerry offerings are totally neglected as I asked about them too. I am not into the Apple thing or the little green robot devices. So I guess I will vote with my feet so to speak.
