Who wants a premier offer for WP10?ie Lumia 950,950xl

Member

I have owned and absolutely loved my Lumia 822 and now my Lumia 735. I have been waiting wit bated breathe for the Lumia 950 xl. I figure if the phones that I have been using for the last 2 1/2 years are considered mid level, then high end has to be off the hook. Now I read that VERIZON may not support a flagship WP 10 at all. If that is the case I would seriously consider switching carriers.

I agree as well. I've been waiting for the Lumia 950 since before it even had a codename or spec sheet. I have a Lumia 930, and I don't want any other phone but the next Lumia flagship. I'll absolutely jump to AT&T, Sprint, or even T-Mobile, if I have to.

I've noticed lately anyways that at a lot of places I'm on 3G instead of 4G LTE around town. My friends have other carriers, and I never hear them complain of slow networks or dropped calls. It may be time to seriously evaluate the competition and choose a carrier that provides options other than just iOS or Android on premium phones for it's customers.

It might even save some money...

I'm in the same boat. Love my Lumia 822 & am holding out for the next best Lumia to come out. If only Verizon would offer it!  I've been a Verizon customer since my first mobile phone...would hate to switch now.

A word of warning on coverage maps. They lie. And they don't tell you how strong the signal is in a specific area, nor what data speeds you can expect. In my neck of the woods, both Verizon and AT&T show blanket coverage. My daughter had AT&T while the rest of us moved from Sprint (Egads!) to Verizon. Our data speeds blew her AT&T data speed out of the water. Coverage maps said we should both have great coverage but she had dropped calls like crazy. And while 4G was available to her, it was so overloaded that the speed bogged down to near-Sprint levels.

The only way to make a decision on carriers is to ask real people how satisfied they are with whoever they use. In some places you will get equal service with both Verizon and AT&T, and in some places you might even get better data speed with AT&T. But where I live Verizon is the undisputed champion.

I made the mistake once of changing carriers to get a specific phone. That's a lesson I'll never forget! And with Verizon finally loosening their policies about bringing in phones from other carriers the idea of switching to get a specific phone might soon become moot.

I am a huge supporter of Verizon wireless and the quality of service it has always provided. I am also an extremely loyal customer. It would take a lot of negatives for me to turn my back on a company, service, or product I have chosen to be loyal to. With that said I am equally committed to what Microsoft has done for me also. the two smartphones I have ever owned were both windows based phones. I partake in many Microsoft product development programs and am generally an early adaptor of some technologies.

The point of my post was that I have been reading and anticipating the general release of windows 10 phones. In fact I have upgraded from the Lumia 822 to the Lumia 735 as an incremental step for myself. I also upgraded the OS from 8.1 to the consumer preview version Win 10. It is amazing!! Because of these points I have my heart set on a flagship phone for the first time. I have considered a move to apple or android. And I rejected both. I want the specs that a flagship phone offers with the reliability that I have come to trust in my Win phones. Putting all of this together the ideal is, The LUMIA 950 XL on VERIZON WIRELESS. And I would like to see this happen this year.

I hope this clears up my post. I am advocating the two WP 10 Flagship phones.

For me, am looking to continue as well as increase my great experience with both the stability of  a Lumina Phone and Windows OS. With Microsoft Working to unite the Echo System with Windows 10 on PC, Tablets and Phones, I look forward in the smooth transition of apps like excel, word, onedrive, onenote between devices. The excellent camera, apps like City Lens, Here Maps, Here Drive, Live Tiles, Cortana, The Lumnia Suite of Apps just to name a few.

This device is 5.7in, will have a Surface Pen, Iris Scanner for Hello Window , MicroSD Slot, Q Charging with a 3300mAh battery, 2 SIM slots, USB Type-C and Continuum Dock.

Again, I hope VZW can see the value in having this phone in its lineup. Just saying.........

If that was true, you'd carry the high end Microsoft Phones coming out, and not push the low-end, high-dividend devices on customers who are willing to pay you money for a service for a phone/device they want in their pockets. Instead, whenever someone goes into one of your stores, the sales associate will push Andriod or Apple onto them. How is that giving the device this customer, and others the devices they want.  If AT&T was priced better I'd already have switched by now.  That being said, come October, if these or similar devices do not come here, I will be done here.

Thank you Verizon Wireless Customer Support

I really love the Windows mobile operating system and I would hope and encourage that they adopt the Lumia 950 and 950XL (Or 940, whatever it will be called).  Not carrying Microsoft's flagship phone will likely cause me to move all 5 of my lines to a wireless service provider that does carry it.

To Verizon Wireless Customer Support,

Please understand that carrying the next Microsoft Flagship (Lumia 950/940) series is extremely important to, I would say, a majority of your current Windows Phone owners.  I understand that Windows Mobile doesn't have a huge portion of the mobile population (3% in the US), but it is over 10% in much of Europe and it is not going away.  So I encourage Verizon to offer this phone (provided a CDMA version is available) in order to appeal to the widest possible array of current and prospective customers.  Considering the multiple features that the phones are rumored to offer that aren't, and likely won't be offered, by other handset makers but highly desireable such as Iris scanning/Windows Hello and Continuum, I would think that Verizon would want to be on the leading edge of technology rather than letting other mobile carriers lead the way.
