So over the summer I got a Lumia 928. I loved the phone and the Windows 8 OS, and it actually helped me realize what I want to do with my life (I'm now a computer science major at my college). However, the other day the screen stopped working. I took it to verizon, where they offered to send me a new one. The associate went out back to go wipe it (for some reason I can't remember), and when he came back out the phone had frozen on a screen of rotating gears. What i'm about to tell you actually happened. AT VERIZON. They apologized for breaking the phone, and offered to send me any phone I wanted - I would get it the next day. I was hesitant, but I asked for an iPhone 5. I've had it for about a week now, and... I hate it. I hate the phone, I hate the OS (iOS 7 is a bad version of WP8). I want my Lumia back.
Just thought I'd share this story, and IMO, the iPhone has had its day, and now WP8 is coming. If any of you are getting new phones soon, and are looking at the iPhone, let me just tell you to stay with WP8 - or even go Android.

Are you now stuck with the iphone with no way to get another Lumia, or can you swap it?
You could always sell the iphone and buy a 928 for the money?
Either way really nice to see you found the OS that suits you in Windows Phone!

im on the 1phone5 right now, i swapped sim card from lumia920 to it and i just wanted to see if a pesky wifi problem was solved with IOS7. no it was not. looks like either the wifi chip is bad even though ive been through apple care and they dont find anything or Nokia's wifi chip is far superior. Either way i have to sell one of these phones to pay for etf. the only thing that attracts me to the iphone are apps, ios is kinda wierd, the "fresh coat of paint" is not even but i do love the new control panel that you swipe from bottom but thats it.so i dont know what i am going to doFirst I played with a green robot, then I ate a shiny apple, now I'm going to lay tiles
