Complete change of subject, I work for one of the Networks in the UK, why are Contracts so expensive in the US? We sell the Lumia 1520 nothing upfront for £43 per month, Ultd mins+Texts and 5GB data!
Anyway... We sell quite a few lumias considering we are based in a small catchment area.. Mainly 520, 925 and 1020's but advertising has been good in the UK :)
I think it'll be in WP8.1.. Right now restrictions don't allow file management, 8.1 will be much more open
UC is a bit slow
Yes, exactly thats it.... all the comments are built on previous news.
the most important part is acutally the name, as its still hasnt been announced and its already known to the public as "cortana"
I've never played Halo, but Cortana is one hell of a name
I want the start screen could be so powerful customized like WP8 launcher on Android!it's ashamed of Microsoft!
Okay... it's fun. Not great, but certainly good enough to waste a few minutes waiting for class to start... I get into Jetpack Joyride a bit too much.
You're not alone. My reason? Simple, it's to long. Shorter the better :p
WP 8.1 will be a huge step
A QWERTY windows phone would be the real deal!
But there isn't really something 'great' for WP in this article, it's just that blackberry is dropping and that's natural
Love Thank you notes and this one was pretty funny
I'm not big on halo like others but I like the name and why not use it's popularity to get people talking about Windows Phone
Well that was just pure awesomeness.. Yaaass!
Nice to see someone on board :)
I don't like it much either, though the story behind the name is amazing... but to me it doesn't shine as a brand... the three syllable makes it difficult to say, as much as i hate SIRI, but seriously, which is easier to say, Si-ri, or Cor-ta-na?
Great. It used to be fourth. Now it's second to last.
Don't get me wrong, I have always loved Halo, but Halo 4 was terrible. The only thing that would make me buy an Xbone would be the promise of Halo 2 Anniversary on it.
I am pretty sure that is the exact point he was making.
I mean left and right side of the start screen extra spacing,just want the gap distance between screen edge to tiles are the same as tile to tiles just like 929 or 1320 does,

So if your going on contract you might as well pick up the best phone which for most people is the iPhone.
Usually retentions or loyalty but province specific deals always pop up around that (Rogers 800mb plus unlimited incoming my friend got back in November, though he had to get a nexus 4 or 4s free on contract, those were the only options and this was not a retentions or loyalty offer, direct from the store he got this deal). Plus bell starting next week is finally making the lite plans start at $40. But point was that, by going on contract unless the difference is $25 or more per month, you still come out paying less and you avoid paying for the phone up front. The value of money in hand is key to many people.

are there going to be any updates for kik after WP 8.1 ?
anyone answer cause most of my friends on other platforms use kik , and kik sucks on wp (no stickers , cant use add ons in the app , the app drains the battery and lastly it makes my phone hot at times .
*cough* Safari SSL *cough*Always
Haha PAM that cracked me up good...! :D
It would be awesome if this was the real deal. Hahahahaha ⬆⬆⬆⬆
Welcome to the club, hope you would remain loyal and faithful to Lumia family and the Windows Phone clan. Rodney will baptize and indoctrinate you in due course.:-)
Plz plz plz someone add the file manager to the windows phone store which can copy,paste and move the files and display the all folders plz it is a request....
Halo remember me always how Microsoft fucked pc gaming for their shitty xbox...
^This. I came from Android (HTC One X) and purchased a Lumia 1020 at Best Buy two days ago. At first, the sales clerk told me they never had any on stock BECAUSE THERE WERE NO LUMIA 1020s ON DISPLAY. However, when he checked their computer they did have 1020s on stock. Like wow
Yeah, it is incredibly pathetic that Microsoft has taken this long in the US to even reach the market share of the all=but-dead-and-buried Blackberry. But I don't think Microsoft cares about US market share. I just bought a Lumia Icon at my local Verizon store. Within the store, the Icon and the other Windows Phones were located on display with a big banner advertisement for the MotoX. How unbelievably ridiculous is it that there is not a single freakin' sign in my local Verizon store advertising Windows Phone? Apple? Check. Motorola? Check. Samsung? Check. Windows Phone? Nowhere to be found. Microsoft clearly does not care about Windows Phone market share in the US right now. That's the only reasonable explanation. Otherwise, they would be ponying up money for displays inside carrier stores.

Wow, I can't believe that I wasted my time watching that video, expecting to hear Cortana and learn someting about "her" features with the Tonight Show!
Based on that Tonight Show video, I have no idea where these comments are coming from? Because Fallon "mentioned" it in one of a string of jokes?
Haha, much as like J.A.R.V.I.S lol
Buy an Xbox gift card (the one with $$ not points) I use it.
Lol I wad hoping WPC would do an article about this because I watched that tonight showed episode and cracked up
SEEMS* pretty good
That's the WP central language
Multi windows would be epic
@ least its not as bad as Rogers ivr Melanie
That makes sense. I got the impression though that jason8957 had access to the built in app but preferred Podcast Lounge. Just wanted to know the differences in US.
Trust me, you don't
The CEO? that's the spirit!
LOOK AT ⬆HIS DUDES USER NAME!!!.. AWESOME❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕
It just seems to be a great name though. It has popularity that WP can use...and the whole meaning of Cortana in Halo being a smart and witty AI assistant is perfect!
SANDEEP NAIR1 says:
If MS will let users choose the name for their assistant then they ll probably stick with cortana. TellMe+ is just crazy lol. I am gonna try Eve for the first month.
Alright, fine DJCBS, you finally did it. After linking that ERB, I like you again (;
