Just saw an article from a few days ago - http://www.winsupersite.com/blog/supersite-blog-39/windowsphone75/exclusive-microsofts-lte-plans-win...

Looks like Verizon won't have any LTE phones for a while....

I too am disappointed.

We’ve communicated to Microsoft that LTE is critical to us,” she said

This is what Marni Walden actually said, "blah blah blah"

I'm the happy owner of an HTC Trophy, but it's just a bit small for my fingers. I waited months and months before finally deciding to give the Trophy a try.  Again, I love it, but want something bigger.

I was hoping Verizon would surprise us and be part of the 900 launch, but at this point I have no confidence in Big Red doing anything with Windows Phone.

So...when the 900 hits AT&T I'm going to pick one up "on trial" and if I can get even decent reception where I live, my money and business will go to AT&T.  The only reason I have not done this yet is the phone I really want has not hit yet (the Nokia 900) and my daughter tells me that all her friends with AT&T get no reception in our area.  Time to put that to the real test.  If it really is horrible, I'll have to return the phone and will be stuck with Verizon.  But, if it is not that bad, my business and then each of my 3 other family lines, plus mobile broadband for a laptop, will one by one move to AT&T.

This decision by Verizon does not make sense.  Anyone with half a brain how sits down with a Windows Phone and compares to other phones out there knows it's at least as good of a product if not better.  To not offer their customers, and to allow their sales folks to miss-lead and not provide all options to its customer base is very poor service.

Can't wait to see when the 900 will be available.

Over the past few weeks, I've been having fun visiting different Verizon Wireless stores around my area and walking in if I happen to see one.  Out of all the stores, I have found only two sales people that even knew there was such a thing as a Windows Phone and today.... I actually ran into a Verizon sales person that used one (although he also had a Droid too.)

So, out of the different stores that I went into, and the 2-3 people that I talked with in each store.... only one person had any real knowledge of the Windows Phone....

Of course, nobody could / would tell me what's going on with Verizon & Windows Phones and the possible future of them, but it is quite telling when they have over a dozen Android phones and only one Windows Phone (and then blame Microsoft for not making more.)
