    I showed off my phone to three separate people who joined the WP7 community. I didn't convince them to buy, I showed them my phone, let them use it, explained what I liked about it, etc. They are all happy WP owners now.

    I didn't convice anybody and don't intend to. Why would I? I don't really give a damn what OS someone uses. I need a phone that fits my "needs". Everybody else can stick to whatever they like. Unless I get paid for promotion, I'm not gonna do the OEMs job!

    Yeah, I recommended the 800 to my friend when he was getting a new phone. He didn't believe me and went for a BB (although mostly because it was free with contract) and now he's somewhat regretting it. His dad got a 900 and he's pretty much convinced about getting a Lumia next.

    Besides that I recommended the 920 to a few other friends but that's about it. Would certainly help if it was out though...

    I recommend the OS depending of the people's need. Nobody I know even uses Microsoft products.

    When people ask my advice, I give them the strengths of Apple, Google, and MS, indicating what type of user benefits from the strengths. I then mention weaknesses of all, and say how the weaknesses may not matter to certain user types.

    Then I say that I chose Windows Phone, but they know their own usage and choose the one that best fits them. But I do love my Windows Phone and I'm very happy with my choice.

    Sometimes just mentioning WP with the other two piques their interests enough.

    As a software developer and an avid gamer (I was into MMOs before they were cool), this is deplorable lol. EVERYONE I know uses a windows machine.

    But, those same people also use Linux machines, Android phones, and a number of other platforms as well.

    The only person I know who was a regular Apple device user was my gf. She had a Macbook pro when we met. Then, over time, as she kept asking to use my PC, I converted her because she simply saw how much more useful a Win7 PC could be.

    No devices are a be all and end all to functionality and they certainly all have their own problems.

    You don't know anyone who uses Windows on their PC or laptop? Nobody uses Office at home or work? Nobody has an XBOX?

    I'm getting one, a girl i know liked the 800 so i told her to get the 920,

    My boss asked me to choose a phone for the business, i am making a cost analyses of the ip5 and 920 with pros and cons of both devices, but he told me yesterday that he wants a big screen not 4inch this would mean that if he agrees and signs we will get the 920 and 80 devices will be ordered!

    My sister. But other than that, I don't really try to sell WP to my friends. It makes me feel desperate (and WP users don't need to appear any more desperate than we already do).

    I applaud you for what you've done but I'd caution against counting your chickens before they hatch. People are funny. Many of them will say they're going to do something but when the time comes, they've always got an excuse why they aren't going to follow through.

    ..and when you recommend a phone to someone. Be prepared to be their tech support rep, who is on call 24/7.

    I don't try to "convince" anyone to buy anything. If people want feedback or opinion, it is provided but that is as far as it goes. I see no reason to proselytize for any product. In fact I find the idea of elevating a product to the point that one is essentially worshipping it to be very distasteful.

    With all of that said, I must admit I am rather skeptical that you have convinced 221 people to buy a product that they have never touched and will not even be able to purchase for another month. Your chiming in a couple times to repeat the number and then frame things such that you sound like a teenage boy boasting about their mythical romantic conquests reinforces my skepticism....

    Me having hard time. My colleagues like me are even Microsoft/.NET programmers too and in our office we use Microsoft products, but they still want the iPHONE some Android and scoffs whenever I mention WP7/8 Even NOKIA.

    They don't like the tiles and typically thinks MS and Nokia are uncool. :dry
