    Well last week I found out I was getting a promotion at work that would net me a company phone, iphone 4s, directly billed to the company so its what we dream of, a free phone with unlimited data lol. I posted on here last week about it and lamented having to potentially give up the Lumia as the $1,200 a year spent to keep it was too much to give up if I have a free phone. But after hemming and hawing over it I decided I simply cannot go with out it and will be keeping it and will be one of those douchebags with 2 phones.

    The Lumia has become such an integral part of my day to day and social life that I don't think I can go without it stepping back down into IOS. After meeting with my IT guys this morning they all agreed, said the company will eventually be locking all that stuff out of the company phones anyway in the near future so I might as well keep it.

    So, in short, I love the Lumia 920 and WP8 so much that I keep it even after getting a free company iphone, thats crazy.

    I think so lol

    Me and my buddies at work used to always make fun of the older sales guys with 2 phones, because they couldn't figure out how to consolidate everything onto one device, now I understand, they just really loved there old Palm's haha

    Not sure why you need some validation on having two.phones. There's no law against it

    That's exactly what I had until Saturday, when I traded my 920 for an iPhone 5.

    My employer is using Iphone 4s right now on Verizon, will likely change later this year to something current and more powerful but it may end up being an Android device. I have to use this phone for work, no options, e-mail etc. will all be forwarded to this phone, so thats it, I have 2 phones lol

    Is there something specific on the iPhone that your company requires? If not, ask them if you can use your Lumia instead.

    Thanks guys. I'm trying to figure out yet if I should feel that way too! I am an Android guy and the Nexus 4 is my daily driver, and the 920 was my 2nd phone on a trial basis. I also wanted to try out the iPhone 5, and when I had the opportunity to trade I took it. I'll see how it goes... I can always sell the iPhone and buy another 920 and have some cash left over.

    I'm the ****** with THREE (hopefully soon to be four) personal phones. Nokia Lumia 920, HTC Titan, and BlackBerry Curve 8520, for BBM. Hopefully if I get a company phone once employed it'll be a BlackBerry Ten device. Can you have separate personal and professional BBM contact lists on 10?

    I used to carry 2 phones... What a pain at times. I got rid of one. My company just reimburses me and a few others (mostly) my IT team members. We all use a mix of os(s). I am the only Windows Phone user.

    What is the absolute reason for the iphone only? Specific app or in house app? If is just email, who cares if they have an exchange server or other server capable of securing the phones email.

    My main reason is like I tell everyone else. Anything from the company is not yours... Email, phones, computers, etc. Even though my company is kinda laxed and may give the device to you in the end, it is not yours until then. We usually oversee a lot of these things and personally I don't want anyone prying into my stuff and what I am doing. I can't stand people using company tools personally. We may or may not help you get your data or give it back. The company may spy on you... I mean wee see everything... The email is filtered.... Blah blah...

    Anywho, I say power to you. Get your iPhone, use it for what you need at work and keep your other one. If there is no specific app needed, then there is really not reason you could not get your company's email on your phone. They just want to have a standard for support or they're just iPhone fans/sheep.

    That's what back pockets are for. Although, I guess you run the risk of corn hole cancer.

    You will probably like it if you enjoyed Android. iOS and Android are a lot more alike than WP and them. Also if having the latest app is important you will like it. It really is a fantastic piece of hardware. My wife loves hers.

    I also have an iPhone5. I like to have a phone for each platform. The i5 makes a good toy for my daughter. The L920 is my daily driver, the n4 is for when I like to hack.
