Could they try to **** me off anymore??? I really could care less about 4g! Most of the country doesn't even have it!!!! Just put in the hardware, and then microsoft can add software support later if you really insist on 4G!!!! ATT is god awful where I live but I don't care anymore. Maybe I'll to T-Mo and get my lumia 900 unlocked. I'm freaking sick of the lack of support for WP. I've got a friend who hates apple, and loves microsoft. But he bought an Iphone 4 months ago because he didn't even know WP7 existed!!! Not only are carries (VERIZON) being %$#%heads, Microsoft can't market worth a crap! I'm sorry, I love wp7 but the few commercials I see suck. You know what would REALLY stick out is something of this manner, this could actually get wp7 some attention.
I'm sick of getting laughed at for owning a WP7. They are super original, efficient and user friendly. Yet me friends wouldn't even consider it a rival to their precious almighty iPhone (except my microsoft loving friend).
This turned into a multi topic rant. My main point is as soon as my contract is done, i'm gone. New verizon wp7 or not.

Careful with that Lumia 900 on T-Mobile. You'll only get 2G speeds, not 3G or 4G. However, I welcome you to T-Mobile, I like them! Since moving to T-Mo from Sprint I save about $35 a month on two lines. Unreal.
Don't do anymore contracts!Rob

Verizon being mainly Android, who knows what is going to happen for WP on the carrier. Also the fact that Verizon is heavily in bed with Motorola which as of late is owned by Google, if I remember correctly. Never know if and when we'll get a new WP device, if Verizon gets one at all.
It's not about what the consumer wants. By the end of 2013 through 2014, America wont support 3G it will all be 4G/LTE. So everyone is trying to get their networks up and running. Thats why Verizon is demanding for a 4G/LTE WP device.
As for marketing, There are always ups and downs with marketing. Have to find the right way to sell the product. MS just hasn't gotten it right yet, but Nokia sure has. So hopefully things will change.

Just to put another option on the table: US Cellular.
They don't have sexy phones (from any carrier), but US Cellular has good prices, great customer service, and great rural cell coverage. They've only got one Windows Phone--the HTC 7 Pro, a 3.6" with a slide-out physical keyboard. It's not sleek and it doesn't have a big gorgeous screen, but it's well-made and practical.

You could always buy the HTC Trophy off-contract on eBay...
BTW, over half of the U.S. population is now covered by Verizon's 4G LTE network.

Hardware wise, I would love to rip the box open and just keep it. Software wise...I got my wife an iPod Touch for a graduation gift so I've been able to play with iOS 5 a bit recently. And it makes me really have no desire to switch. I don't think I could get used to something so primitive ;) :dry
I find WP7 so slick and smooth, it's just about perfect for me. So hopefully they release a new one this fall/winter for me to pay retail price for.

As for comparing the different mobile OS, iOS is better (and in terms of just working, arguably a lot better) than Android OS, though Windows Phone OS is better than iOS IMO (mainly because iOS is bland compared to Windows Phone OS). If Verizon doesn't support WP 8, going with the iPhone 5 when I get a new phone/renew my contract later this year is my current backup plan.
