I visited Verizon retail store in bay area, california.
At entrance, first wall display was Android phones, then next wall-iphone and last wall- WP. Hardly anyone would notice them unless they came
looking for WP or were checking out whole store.
Then at WP wall, Lumia 822-black and white were both had screen turned off(time out) whereas HTC 8X was running a demo video in loop.
Wonder, if Verizon did that purposely. (Keeping screen time outs on Lumias). Also both lumias has some stains(velcro stick marks),while 8x didn't have any.
Also, I engaged in a conversation with a sales staff for iphone5.(I was checking WP while someone came out to help me).
After, having a detailed discussion about iphone5, he told me that verizon iphone comes unlocked, so you are good to put any gsm sim card.
But for WP, I have to wait for 3 months for unlocking and then if Verizon gives me an unlock code, and if I unlock my WP, then warranty is void.
But, if you get it unlocked from a third party, then warranty is not void. He said, same thing applies for android phones.
This is what is fishy and sounds totally incorrect to me- his warranty claims. What do you guys think? Anyone with Verizon/WP experience?
