    How many people have you convinced to get a Windows phone 8 device?
    me 121 people in my school alone and 100 people for my Job :). how many have you convinced. I'm very good at convincing people and very good at marketing and raising awareness

    None - yet.....
    I have spoken to a few on the advantages of a WP8 device, but until the phones have actually been released it is a bit hard to show people, seeing is believing or so they say.

    None - I don't do pushing - especially because if they don't like the platform you pushed them to, you look an *******.

    Me of course, my girlfriend, 2 co-workers and 1 co-workers wife.
    My mother and stepfather. Convinced my brother to settle down and wait for Windows Phone 8 until making his decision on Samsung GS3 or the Lumia 920.

    Umm thats about it, I would like to point out that my mother is a nearly 60 year old lady who does not know a thing about technology but she is in love with my Lumia 900 and I convinced her to buy the Lumia 920, even took her to see one in Helsinki and she absolutely fell in love with the red and yellow :)

    I always thought adults were more promoting type. But It's always the youngsters :). well makes sense since adults have to work and being bored a lot and go home with their GF and do the (whistles) ;).

    Got my brother, mom and dad to switch. I try not to push people into it, but if they ask my opinion then obviously its gonna be some sort of windows phone. If I ever meet an asian girl with a windows phone I might just marry her....haha.

    Definitely this. Back in the day I recommended a BlackBerry. She hates it and refuses to take my advice for phones ever again. We've lost her to iPhone.

    Back on topic though. Got my dad to Windows Phone and he loves it.

    None officially. I am more into subliminal promoting, or educating. Showing off the finer points of WP7/8, without directly knocking the competition. If I can leave some doubt in a non-WP users mind, I have done my job.

    Zero, that's the OEM's job. All smartphones do the same thing for the most part. I believe it's call preference.

    I think if Viggle was on WP8, my wife would've come over. Alas, she got Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket - which she isn't all that particularly happy with because she has to reboot it all the time (at least once a week).

    My mom is getting my old WP after I get my Lumia 920...

    The secretary at the church is very intrigued by WP now after seeing me use my Focus, as are some other pastors in the area....

    I don't push, I just use it and let them decide for themselves. Though for my two very pro-Apple fans, just telling them about the super sensitive touch screen made them go 'Wow, that's awesome.'

    None yet, but I've got a BB user at work excited about getting a 920. BB users should be the easiest to convince. RIM is circling the drain, and a lot of long-time BB fans are starting to admit it.

    I've stopped recommending stuff to people, because if they dont like it they hold it against you as if you have manufactured the product and any of it's flaws are your fault.

    I don't convince people, I just recommend. You should take into account what the person need/want.

    when some people ask me to recommend something, I feel it is because they are not decisive enough and if it turns out to be a bad buy then they have someone to blame. Simple. :mad:

    What's to push? What does it do so much better than any other phone that makes it worth taking a risk that you have to live with for 2 years. If WP8 became totally symbiotic with Win 8 and everything on Windows looked the same on WP8, like it did with WP6, then it's worth a shot. Without that, why bother?

    I recommended the Commodore Amiga to lots of people. Unfortunately, the arrogance of the design engineers and or mgmt had them concentrate on Desktop Video only and ignored good worksheet and spreadsheet programs. People would have tried it and loved it if they had their base business programs but without them, anyone not needing to create Desktop Video ignored it. It was one of the best computers at the time. It was incredible for games but it needed both people who wanted to have fun and people who needed production for business. Windows is still king because so many business programs run on it and they do not run on Apples. IMac Windows simulation doesn't always work.

    We're gonna ban corporate owned Android devices at work and the only choice will be iOS or WP8 so I'll force convert some people... muhahahahahaha. Plus with our Verizon corp contract we only do 1 year contracts on all devices except iPhone... Apple forces Verizon to do 2 year no matter what. 1 year versus 2 years.. its an easy pick.
