    I'd switch carriers to get a titan or focus but att and Verizon are just too expensive. And sprint is going to charge me an extra 20 bucks a month for upgrading my 2 phones. (aholes) so I'm going for a radar (as long as its not white)

    I'm from Claro, so the uncertainty is enormous.

    Where's the option for suicide?

    No, but seriously, if no new phones come out on Verizon (which they will) I just won't do anything.

    at least verizon has a decent wp on the trophy, but sprint is ridiculous.
    Every store i go, the htc arrive, is hidden, not working, not charged, not updated, no wifi connected, it has some security that blocks the screen... horrible. and their service is bad, and i have them for 2 years, their data speed is the worst too.
    I will switch, either verizon or at&t. i will know after nokia's conference.

    I'm gonna wait either for the HTC Titan on AT&T or Nokia on Verizon next year.

    I really, really want a new Verizon WP. However, if that doesn't happen, it looks like I'd be putting month-to-month service on my Focus (hopefully until a new phone comes to Verizon). Verizon service here is soooo much more expanse, but I'm not going to get stuck with a Trophy for two years starting at the end of November. I'd rather bite the bullet for a few (hopefully) months with a beautiful phone and not so great coverage than be in that boat.

    Dan...that is easier said than done. I went from a pre 2 on vzw to a dvp on t-mobile. I may have a griffin sweet phone now but when the service is just not there it gets awfully frustrating. Granted I was paying vzw out the wazoo but I had service everywhere. Now I don't get service in my living room.

    What good is a sweet phone if the service can't let it do what it's intended ya know?

    I currently have the Arrive, or else that would be my vote, but when my contract is up in 2013, if there were no phones I like on Sprint, I'd change companies, I need a Windows Phone with a slider

    I completely understand and I'm really trying to brace myself for the worst. AT&T coverage is pretty good here if you are in a town, but I'm really going to take a hit when traveling. My Verizon phone has coverage for about 95% of my four-hour trip. I don't think AT&T will even get 50%. Guess I could take the main roads, though.

    Dumping Sprint for AT&T no matter what happens. Sprint has lost it.

    Verizon works best for me, so switching carriers is out of the question. And I am not a fan of the iPhone or Samsung. So it's me and my Trophy for the time being.

    I'm on both Sprint and AT&T, so it won't be an issue for me.

    I do wish Sprint could get some goodness for my employee discount.

    I'll definitely consider switching. I'm happy with my trophy, but my wife is up for an upgrade and we're waiting to see if Verizon gets anything. The only thing holding us back from switching is a cheap family plan, but we might just bite the bullet and switch if nothing new is coming. My coverage isn't great anyway, especially at work.

    The plan I have and my employee discount make it highly unlikely that I will ever switch from Verizon, so if they don't come out with any more windows 7 phones I'll switch to another platform. Hopefully it won't come to that.

    Can't your employer add another carrier discount? Why eliminate competition.

    I can get a discount with Verizon and AT&T through my company, but the discount for Verizon is twice as large. I switched to Verizon from AT&T because of poor service around my house, so I would be leery of switching back, but I would if Verizon's service went downhill where I'm at.

    That's my situation also with Verizon. I get a discount through work.

    I'm happy with my Trophy. Verizon definitely covers me better than the other 3, though I miss Sprint's prices.

    My company pays for my service but not my phone. Because of that, I'm tied to Verizon no matter what. So what will I do if no WP7 is announced for Verizon at Nokia World?

    Would everyone say if no Verizon phone is announced at Nokia world, that they wont be releasing any the rest of the year? What about LG, Samsung, HTC? I would assume phones would have been leaked from those companies so i believe Nokia is the last chance. I would get the trophy, but 150 is way to much. The new iPhone is 50 bucks more. The Trophy needs to be around 50 for me to get it.

    For me at least, I get discounts at all 4 large carriers where I work. I am on sprint at the moment, but AT&T gives an extra 7% over Sprint. Yet another reason to leave.

    I think Verizon's big selling point right now is it's LTE network, so if a Nokia LTE phone is announced, I can see Verizon with it.

    I'll wait until January when my both my lines are eligible for upgrades. If there's a new windows phone on Verizon, I'll get two of them, assuming they aren't tiny 3.5 - 3.7 inch screens (I want something over 4"). If not, I'll go with the Nexus or other Android 4.0 phone if any. My original Motorola droids gave me a good run, but time for something new.
