If MS killed of Windows Phone and made current devices unusable (not going to happen, but this is a hypothetical situation) in four months what phone/OS would you switcht to (4 months was to put it past BlackBerry OS 10 availability).
I would probably go iPhone 5. I have had Android as secondary devices recently and it just doesn't do it for me, and after being with Windows Phone since pre-NoDo on an HD7, I'm not wanting to go through the growing pains with BB10, but it is the OS I'd rather have. Still, I think I'd end up with an iPhone 5 unless BB10 grows up really, really quickly.

If there were no more WP, then it would be BB10. I've never owned a BB, but BB10 looks 'different' and therefore, I'd be interested; however, if there were no BB10 in the equation, then it would be iPhone 5. Android does not interest me at all.

I would probably choose Android. I've never had an Android device, but I do like Linux.
I would not pick an iPhone, since I am a Windows/Linux user and do not care for anything from Apple.
I've had BlackBerry in the past, and part of the reason I left was lack of apps. I'm not convinced that BlackBerry will ever have Netflix, which is one of the apps I use regularly.

Came from two years of Android 1.6 to 4.1 - no interest in going back
have iPad - that's enough iOS for me.
Used BB, but BB10 is new and different.
That leaves trying MeeGo, something I have always wanted to and BB10 if that does not work.The SmartPhone Parade (2006-Now)QTEK 9100 > Samsung Blackjack > Treo 750 > Treo Pro > BB 9700 > Xperia X10 > Motorola Atrix > HTC Vivid > Lumia 900 > Lumia 820

IPhone because I like pretty things. I have a lot of experience with android and I can't stand the disorganized feel of the OS. But then again most people would probably go for android due to rampant piracy.

I'll always have a soft spot for RIM. So my first choice would be BB10, followed by iOS. I'm still not convinced that Android is best for communication, news and productivity first - something at which BB continues to excel and where WP is starting to shine.

Am coming from BB therefore I would go back to BB because it does look promising at this point of time. IPhone and Android will never see my money. At the same time I will say that I might just pick up a brick if Windows Phone were to go down the drain and call it end for smartphones and me cause its Windows Phone or nothing.

Me personally I would go with the Iphone. After using that and blackberries it's the most seamless next step. I dont trust Android and I'm not going to go from one dead platform to another dying platform (Blackberry), because I'll be in the same predicament again.
