I am currently with Verizon and have access to getting the Nokia Lumia 928 today, but the 1020 looks awesome from what I can see. I am guessing it will be available at the end of the year after the 6 month AT&T exclusivity period is up so I am debating waiting or not. From what I can tell spec wise the phones are very similar minus one thing. One big thing; the camera. Is the camera really THAT good of a reason to hold off? I take a decent amount of photos with my current phone (S3) and one problem I find is when I need to zoom in, my pics always look grainy and never come out right. Thanks in advance for the help.

The only problem is we don't know if Verizon will be coming out with their own version...the 928 takes good photos, but not like the 1020.
However, I would guess that if you take a lot of shots that end up too dark or blurry the 928 could help there.

There is no comparison. One is a great phone with a good camera attached to it. The other is an amazing no holds barred camera with a phone attaced to it. I had a 925 but love taking pictures, so I switched to the 1020 and am delighted with it.

Easy solution is the buy the 928 off eBay or Craigsllist and not use your upgrade until you see what Verizon has to offer. That's what I did and got the 928 for under $200. Might give this a thought.

I ended up biting and bought it from the guy. He only had a short period of time as he was on a break from work so he couldn't do the exchange at a Verizon store, but I went right after I purchased it to one and it activated just fine on my account so we shall see. I am hoping that because it activated without issues then it is good to go.

Even if you get a 1020 contract free/sim free/unlocked it'll be useless as it uses a GSM radio.

It looks like you decided to go with the 928 (which I've been considering for a while), but I just thought I'd pass along this information I came along during my daily Google search of "Nokia 1020 Verizon"...
If this site is to be believed, it looks like there might be a Lumia 1020 variant coming to Verizon soon (october):

I'm gonna personally wait to see if anything is announced at the end of this month...I can hold on to my crappy ***/buggy android phone in the mean time (although it's getting more difficult by the day). As a photographer, the picture-taking strengths of the 1020 are hard to pass up...
