My name is Ammar. I'm from Pakistan. Just sold my iPhone 4S for a white Lumia 920. I just completed my bachelors in Business Administration in Marketing.
I've owned a Windows Phone before (Omnia 7 around 2 years ago) but wasn't impressed by WP7 at that time.

Ok made a few post over the last year so time to introduce myself.
I'm Darren from Norwich, England. Work for Aviva
Use to have an HTC HD7 which I swithed from iPhone 3Gs at the time. I then traded my HD7 back to iphone with no. 5. Had it 2 months hated it & seemed pointless having iPhone & iPad. So got rid & now have a Nokia Lumia 620. (Would prefered 820 but with the price saving it was hard to resist) so back in the Windows Phone game.
Main reason for having Windows Phone is for Xbox Live Games. So invite us if you which to share some gamerscore.CONSOLES/TABLETS: XboxOne, Xbox360 & Surface Pro 2
PHONE: Nokia Lumia 930
GAMERTAGS: supadryz & supadryzarcadz
COUNTRY: Noriwch, UK

I'm Jared, I'm 17 and I live in suburban NY, about 2 hours away from Manhattan. I primarily use a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and a HTC Trophy as a media consumption device. I'm a huge supporter of both Windows Phone and Android, and I'm not a fan of Apple.
I'm a senior in high school, with no job. I have 2010 Kia Soul Sport as well a 76 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible as my fun car (although both are fun).
I LOVE music, I'm obsessed with cars, I like playing video games (primarily racing) and I could about either of those things any day, all day.

Andy from Boston, Ma. I am 22 years old going on 23 next month. I am a Microsoft junkie. I own all of their products everything from lumia 920 to surface rt to a windows 8 laptop and desktop and an xbox 360 (gamertag BLooDY617.) and am a huge evangelist for windows phone. I use the Lumia 920 but have had extensive use of all platforms. I'm open minded to all tech. I dont believe in a 2 horse race and want technology to be about the benefit of the customer and the freedom to choose what works best for our day to day lives. I work as a printer repair tech at fidelity investments in the city.
Some of my interest include reading, photography, gaming (just beat farcry 3) today lol. I'm a forum junkie and I'm always willing to learn new things. Its good to meet my fellow windows brethren. :D
Im super glad to be a part of this community even when people sometimes get snarky :p and will continue to use what i think is the product that is being the most diverse and unique and innovative and right now thats windows phone windows 8 and xbox :D

Corey from Birmingham, Alabama. Technical support representative for AT&T. Was an avid iPhone user, but made the switch to WP8. Loving my phone and OS just really wish people would jump aboard making apps for WP like they do for Apple and Android.

Nice to meet y'all.
I'm Neriah, I enjoy playing games (PSVita) and I'm 21 years old.
I'll be getting a cherry red Lumia 920 next week, if the post office is kind enough. LOL
It'll be my first time in WP (also 1st smartphone) and I'm counting on you experts to teach me all about it.

I'm from Switzerland. I bought a Samsung ATIV S a month ago to replace my Nokia Lumia 710 which was my first smartphone.
I like most things about Windows phones but not everything, that's why I joined this forum so I can talk about it with fellow WP users.
Talk to you guys later on the boards.

Hello everyone. Finally i am officially a Windows Phone user. Been a lurker in this forums reading everything WP and when i bought my Lumia 820, it's something i will forever remember as the best decision in my life. Happy user here from the Philippines!
Being different from the other OSes prove to be a disadvantage thought. People notice my phone, not me

Greetings from Batam! (Indonesia, if you wonder)
Not 'old' enough but I sure do love smartphones and specifically, Windows Phone. My first smartphone (and touch screen phone) was the Nokia 500. Then, I switched to Nokia N9, which I finally broke it (Golly..)
Finally, got a taste of the WP through the Lumia 710 and now, the Lumia 620.
Extremely happy with my phone. Somehow, I am interested on Sony Xperias but then...... Hey guys! :)

Hi all, my name is Roger and I am from the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica.
I love tech even after it has punched me in the face a couple of times.
I've had a Motorola V60, V120t, Ericsson T18d, Nokia 6560, Nokia E51 and a Palm Pixi Plus.
My first Smartphone was a Nokia N8 (still using it, by the way) and my latest purchase is a Lumia 820 (online) wich unfortunately I received locked to AT&T so can only use with skype, whatsap and anything that does't involve making a phonecall. Still trying to work this out but it's a bit difficult as I am not in the US.
Had a Sony Xperia miro that died almost a month after I purchased it.
I work at a government company here and have both a Windows XP and a Windows 8 PC I built myself, a Windows 7 Laptop and netbook.
I have a beautifull wife, who is a teacher, and a 3 year old son.
I am always checking the site for news and stuff and have downloaded several apps reviewed here.
Love the site!
