Wouldn't it be nice to see more ads like this again for WP7? This got people talking and actually considering WP7 back when I worked at Sprint. I would love to see these ads resurrected and have a ton of new ones made, as long as they were good. Don't need to fill the airwaves with crap ads.

I never thought those commercials made sense. If I'm going to shell out all of this money for a phone and a data plan, I'm going to want to get my money's worth out of it. Why would I buy something that I'm not going to use? Maybe if it said that you could be more productive in less time then it would make more sense, but the main tagline is "save us from our phones". Nonsensical.

These old commercials are what made me buy my windows phone. I love the concept of get things done fast and move on to living my life in the real world. Thats what I love about windows phone, I can be productive while living my personal life. I run my schedualing, emails, texts, FB, LinkedIn, Twitter... etc all from my phone and I feel like I never even use it. I dont have to stare at my computer screen for hours at the end of the day and work. I just live. Thats the beauty of windows phone. Simple Metro design for keeping life simple.

The best thing about these commercials is that people weren't always associating the phone with windows, but with the commercial. Since windows has a bad rep that they need to fix, it helped, at least IMO.
I'd have people come in asking about the commercial with all those people falling down or getting hit with stuff, or (the best to me) the "Really?!" commercial. That was easier to start talking about it than explaining that this is not windows mobile, but windows phone 7.
