There are very few phones that would meet your criteria. I think only the Samsung Ativ S Neo would have the size and memory requirement. Don't know about build quality or camera.

Went to another two Verizon stores and still no Windows Phones on display. Showed them 8.1 on my 822 and they seemed impressed, but just walked out and went elsewhere. Wife ordered an Icon online,...

So could any 920 case be modified to fit on the 1020?
- 04-16-2014, 01:11 PM
milkyway, what app did you use for your panoramic shot, or did you do it in photoshop or some other desktop editor?
Wife got her icon last night with a pink Incipio Dual Pro case. Feels really nice.
Had problems with my gmail account too, was getting an error code every time I opened it. I unchecked the calendar and all is good. I thought it was just me.
Didn't work with the aftermarket headunit in my truck either (Kenwood), but did work with the bluetooth headset in my motorcycle helmet (Cardo).

Ok I just subscribed so I could listen to the games. Now when I select a game there aren't any headphones at the bottom to be able to listen to the game. The only thing I have is the little bell to...
I miss the animated tile. That was just a nice feature that added a little to the start screen.
Will it delete the high res photo if you delete the 5MP one?

We went in on saturday because my wife wanted to see the 928 and Icon before she chose one. They asked if they could help, and I asked to see them. He said we haven't carried Windows phones in...
Service for both is the same for me. I was with AT&T before and was very happy with them. Only switched to Verizon because of my wife. All her family had Verizon so we would have needed a lot of...
I'm trying to decide what to do. I was sure I would get a 1520 and that would be the end of my decision, but I really don't think the big screen is right for me, and I use my phone for GPS/Music on...
- 04-11-2014, 12:06 PM
Has anyone seen a case like the Poetic Atmosphere (1020 or 928) or Puregear Slim Shell (Icon/929) for the 1520?
I like the look and feel of the clear hard case, but the extra rubber portion around...

Got my card last night. Full amount of the ETF. Sounds like you are exception, not the rule.
- 04-11-2014, 11:48 AM
I did a hard reset and only reinstalled necessary apps. All good now, can easily go all day listening to music or podcasts. I was lucky to get to lunch time before.
- 04-10-2014, 01:11 PM
Do the TPU cases make the buttons harder to push? I know they raise them, making them easier to find, but do they make them physically harder to push. I have the Incipio Dual Pro on my 822 and it...
I'm trying to decide between yellow and black. It is true that yellow would stand out more, but I don't think you can "hide" a 6" phone.
I figured that, but was hoping. There are so many S4 cases available, and I know that one of the only things my wife dislikes about Windows Phones is the lack of accessories, or more accurately the...
What car do you have? Which location did you get. I have the ProFit on my Silverado, and it puts the device kind of far away (beside the radio, but on the passenger side, if it was on driver's side...
- 04-08-2014, 01:40 PM
Hook'em Horns!!! If only it had SD... and was available in the US (I'm sure you could swap the shell onto an Icon though)
I'd like to see the orange one.
The US distributor is Car Phone Holders and Dashboard Phone Mounts*-*ProClip USA
There is also Pro.Fit International - Producing Cell Phone Holders and Car Mounts with a professional fit
Any cases available yet?
Edit: Looks like Verizon has a few available including an Incipio DualPro (which is what I would want on any new phone). They have a purple or pink and black or gray...

That's great news. I like the backward/forward swipes in Windows 8.1 and hoped they would come to windows phone
- 04-07-2014, 12:49 PM
I am getting what is expected from mine, and it seems that others are as well. Have you tried contacting their customer service to find out why you aren't getting what was owed to you. Remember...
No unlock code needed, it will just work when you put the SIM in. I'm not sure of the APN settings, but mine works on T-Mobile. Don't know why data isn't working with an AT&T sim. I would try...
I had to turn it down to 2G on my 822, 3G still didn't work. Maybe with WP8.1 and the quick settings you could switch back and forth easier, but with the current way it is a PITA.
- 04-02-2014, 02:38 PM
Both still available.
Got the same text problems with the 822 on T-mobile. Have to set data speed to 2g, or turn it off completely to send texts, either works.

I can't figure out how to edit a post so I will add pictures here.
Phone 1: Brand new, box, booklet, and unused charger.
Phone 2: Used 2 days, perfect condition, box, booklet,...
I can't figure out how to edit a post so I will add the picture here. Phone and all 6 cases, and 2 Incipio screen protectors. The phone still has a Zagg screen protector on it.
Item Description: HTC Trophy
Carrier Locked or Unlocked?: Unlocked (Tested with Verizon and T-mobile SIMs)
Condition: Good condition, always in case, and had a screen protector...

Item Description: 2 Nokia Lumia 521s for T-Mobile
Price: $75 each
Carrier Locked or Unlocked?: T-Mobile
Condition: Phone 1 is brand new, only turned on to update to Black, then reset. It still...
I like the 822 a lot, but I like new tech stuff, so I am tempted. Currently my wife and I are both using the 822 on T-mobile.

Got an email last night that my ETF reimbursement was approved and I will receive it within 2-3 weeks. It was for the full ETF that I expected ($260/line x 2 lines = $520).
If this really is an Icon with a more 920ish look (bright colors, polycarb, etc.), I wonder what colors it will come in? Personally I hope for the orange from the 630 pictures. Of course I say that...
I don't see the point of having 2k or 4k on a 5" or even 6" phone. 1080P is plenty and to tell the truth probably more than is needed or could be detected by most people.
Most likely if you are stuck with Verizon, April will bring nothing new to you except maybe the developer preview of WP8.1.
Your experience is not different from mine. I dread going into VZW stores. Now I am on T-mobile so that's not a problem, but my wife wants to go back to VZW for better coverage at her work. I will...
I wish At Bat updated the live tile, and there was a reliable app for NCAA Football. I used to use Sportscores, but that app is no longer available.
- 03-24-2014, 02:17 PM
Thought I figured it out, but no luck. Might do a hard reset with only the apps I "need", and see if that is any better. I really hate doing that though.
- 03-24-2014, 02:04 PM
Was it for the full ETF that you expected? I'm at 4 weeks waiting now.
From an earlier post I made:
- 03-19-2014, 11:45 AM
Wonder if they will have a lower priced smaller plan? Also looks like they are dropping unlimited. At least that's how it sounds if you click on it in the link that was provided.
- 03-19-2014, 11:41 AM
Since you are buying outright anyway, why not buy unlocked phones and use them on T-Mobile?
- 03-18-2014, 02:33 PM
I updated both mine. Seems to work fine.
- 03-17-2014, 02:16 PM
I like the third one too, but it would be nice if you could pick the color of the text or logo on the tiles (i.e white or black, or even any of the background colors other than the one you are using...
I wish Incipio made a Dual Pro for the 1520.
With my 822 it seems to be the right mix between protection and size. Otterbox was too big but very protective, and Feather is thin, but doesn't seem...
- 03-17-2014, 01:16 PM
I think I might have found my culprit - either Bing Weather or Bing sports. Uninstalled both and now it seems to be doing great.
That would be nice. I'd like to update the two I have. Still debating on whether to sell them both or keep the one as a spare. One hasn't even been out of the box yet, other was only used a day.
I'm leaning toward a 1520, but waiting to see what is released with WP8.1. Good to see so many people adjusting to the size though. I am still a little hesitant though. It doesn't seem as big as...
- 03-12-2014, 01:31 PM
I wish there was something between 300MB and 2GB. I think I can make 300GB work, and like was said I could still go over a few times a year if necessary (like when travelling and not around wifi...
That comment is very confusing. There already is a Windows app, just not a Windows Phone app.
- 03-12-2014, 01:23 PM
Both my wife's and mine have had the same problem. Like you I have tried almost everything. Using the Battery Performance app I have found it to discharge at about 10%/hr even just sitting there...
I like the Greatshield anti glare protectors on other devices. Not sure if they have them for the Icon yet, but whatever phones my wife and I end up with we will be using the Greatshield protectors...
- 03-03-2014, 12:04 PM
This is what I want too. I am ready to jump on it as soon as it comes out. If it doesn't have a microsd slot no matter how great the other features are, I will not be getting it. It only makes...
I sent them a message again yesterday. No reply so far.
I am using the access point app. I will try that. I have tried turning international assistant on and off, and it didn't change.
Dual Pro. It isn't much bigger than the feather but offers more performance and complete encapsulates the phone.
- 02-27-2014, 09:04 AM
It would just be nice to be able to watch the game if I'm not home, at least I can listen to it.
I would really like a waterproof windows phone. Samsung is doing it with the S4 and S5, Nokia/Microsoft can do it too.
I'm going to hold off until after WP8.1 comes out, but I'm so anxious I keep checking every day. This is the first time I am able to upgrade with the release of new devices, usually I was about 6...
- 02-26-2014, 09:21 AM
That's good news!!! I hope it has a better live tile as well (game time, or live game updates)
Does anyone know if you have the mlb.tv subscription can you still watch local games on your device?...
- 02-26-2014, 09:08 AM
The microSD slot is the biggest I think. If the 929/Icon had it, I think it would be nearly the perfect phone for size and features.
Anyone figured out the text issue with the 822 on other networks. Maybe it is just on T-mobile but everything else works great with the correct APN settings, but texting will only send messages if I...
- 02-24-2014, 01:00 PM
Went into the store with two old phones (Samsung Blackjack 2 and Solstice) and walked out with two 521s. Actually gave us more for the old phones (BJ2-$15, Solstice-$5) than they would have for our...
Exactly like the black one other than the small openings in the back for the camera, mics and speakers. Everywhere else that is white is covered. So looking from the front you wouldn't even be able...
Wonder why Incipio hasn't updated their site to show the cases yet. I like the Incipio feather and dual pro cases. If a dual pro is available, I will get it for whatever phone I get from now on.
- 02-21-2014, 12:12 PM
I found the page saying you could turn in any phone, even a broken phone.
T-Mobile's Early Termination Fee (ETF) Reimburs... | T-Mobile Support
Going tonight to make the switch.
- 02-19-2014, 11:41 AM
I am seriously considering this. I got a SIM card and my wife is using it now on the pay by day plan to see if the coverage is acceptable for us.
This thread helped answer a few questions for me....
- 02-18-2014, 11:35 AM
He never said he was only paying $3/month for the phone, he said he would be paying $3/month more than he does now (+$23.06/month for edge phone payment - $20/month for discount with large data...
- 02-17-2014, 12:46 PM
They corrected it to be 2/13-3/31.
Wonder how much the Icon will be per month.
I tried that and didn't see that option. I will have to try again or (gasp) go into the store and see if I can get someone who knows what they are doing to help me.
Once the app is available I will try to get the SE sim for my 822 too. I think it is a cool feature.
Sticky: Re: 929 Roll Call
Went to my local store last night. Not only did they not know anything about the ICON/929 ("Is that the one with the 41MP camera?"), but they didn't have a single WP on display. All Android phones...
- 02-04-2014, 12:39 PM
It was very seamless on WP7, but seems to be a little more hit and miss on WP8 (or maybe just this last update). I will have to keep that method in mind though. Thanks!
- 01-28-2014, 02:27 PM
I saw on Nokia's site the Black update for the 820 and 920 are listed as "Coming Soon". The 822 is still "Waiting for Approval".
- 01-28-2014, 02:19 PM
I played last night. Had a few crashes when trying to save my game in the house. Also had an issue where I failed the drive thru mission and it tried to go back to the last checkpoint but kept...
- 01-27-2014, 03:21 PM
Works much better than I expected. Will play it a little more tonight. Only tried it on default graphics settings, but I am impressed.
- 01-27-2014, 03:16 PM
I don't have an update either. I'm on the Developer Preview so I'm not really all that anxious waiting for Black.
- 01-23-2014, 11:25 AM
Tried Old Reader and didn't like it, but Turoc seems to work well. Thanks for that. Hopefully they can get the feedly stuff fixed soon.
- 01-22-2014, 04:10 PM
That's what I like and use too, but it is connected to Feedly so it doesn't work now. I will most likely switch back when feedly fixes whatever their problem is, but I need something to work in the...
- 01-22-2014, 03:47 PM
Apparently there is a problem with Feedly's link to craigslist, so none of my feeds are updating (and haven't for the last 4 days). I found that they do update on The Old Reader, but The Old...

My wife has been wanting an 8" tablet. This could be the one for her.
Couldn't they still charge the OEMs for it when the device is built, but then offer free updates to the consumer? That would get them the best of both worlds it seems.
- 01-13-2014, 03:21 PM
I pinned the tile for volume level 30, and it only shows the 3 if small tile size is selected. Great app though, much needed.
- 01-10-2014, 10:38 AM
Right, I used the phone to format it after I put it in the phone.
- 01-08-2014, 02:29 PM
+1, same one I have.
Wife got me one for Christmas. Wish WP8 didn't make it so hard to sync with the computer and not have duplicates. I ended up resetting the phone and using the metro app in...
- 01-08-2014, 02:23 PM
But in "IN THE BOX" it is listed as a "Non–removable Lithium Polymer Battery (2,000 mAh)"
It would be THE phone if it has microSD.
Looks like the feather case and dual pro, that's good news that there are going to be a few options available from the start. I really love Incipio cases. I would go with either the feather or dual...
- 12-17-2013, 02:12 PM
The article on the main page said all WP8 phones would update to 8.1
In November? :P
- 12-06-2013, 12:24 PM
So they are $199 online, not $99 for a short time?
The email says:
Makes it seem like there will be some available online for $99 as well.
I don't like how the keyboard doesn't pop up automatically in desktop mode. Its really annoying to have to bring it up everytime you want to type, or am I missing a setting to automate it?
I like pod.ding (currently being updated and not available in the store). It allows you to do what you ask, but to download the podcasts in the morning you have to open the app, then it...
- 12-03-2013, 11:08 AM
If you put it in Global mode wouldn't it connect to whatever network you are trying to use, CDMA or GSM?
Yeah that is true, that is where the digitizer pen comes in handy for me on my Thinkpad Tablet 2
I have found that IE11 Metro has problems with a lot of forums, the page freezes and IE crashes. I can open the same page on the desktop IE11 without any issues at all. Probably not related to your...
