Already Converted 10 of my family members over to AT&T for Nokia Lumia 900!!!

Verizon,

You decided to drag you feet, promote the crap out of Android and stop supporting Windows Phone 7.

So I converted 10 of my family members over yesterday to AT&T for the Nokia Lumia 900.

I got them $100 credit towards the Nokia Lumia 900 which AT&T was charging $99 dollars for the phone on Pre-Order.

So my family members only had to pay $36 for the activation fee.

Verizon, you had your chance.  You had multiple chances.  If you truly wanted an LTE Windows Phone 7 from Microsoft, you could have easily worked something out with them, just like AT&T did.

All the information has been leaked out, Apollo/Windows Phone 8 was supposed to have LTE but because AT&T showed that they really were interested in Windows Phone 7 and actually carring a lineup of Windows Phone 7, Microsoft worked it out for them.

So you can take all your Droid crap that you have heavily invested in, along with all your iPhone 4s that keep hogging all the bandwidth on your network and stick it were the sun don't shine.

I promise you this, when my contract is done I will be terminating my account in FULL and switching over to AT&T as well.

To not even stand behind a product that we all have signed 2 year contracts with is unacceptable for the price were paying.  To hold back all updates besides Mango is unacceptable just to lock in new 2 year contracts.  And I'm talking about Droid too.

Carriers should not be in controll of phone updates PERIOD!!!  Updates should be released from the OS Manufactures just like on computers.  This business model that the industry has created is a SCAM, JOKE and an INSULT to everyone that puts there hard earned money up for phone service.

Verizon, you have lost all respect in my book, and I will do everything possible to get everyone and everybody I talk to away from your network.

Only way to solve this issue is to address the Windows Phone 7 community and actually annouce something, PERIOD!!!  Release the 8107 update as a good faith measure and issue a press release stating your business model regarding Windows Phone 7... Unless you want more dollars going to AT&T.

Also, latest news shows that Android only made $22million in revenues last year, and spend $20 billion acquiring Motorola.  So I don't see Andriod being able to do much in the year 2012 to ramp things up to compete against Windows Phone 7/Nokia and Apple.

Do Something, NOW!!! CAN YOU HEAR US NOW!!!

Also, here's another suggestion... Do like AT&T has done and give users a early termination fee to get out of there contracts.  I believe they charge $35 dollars or something higher if your not satisified and want to terminate your contract early.

Since you don't want to support or offer any more Windows Phone 7, why keep us as unhappy customers.  Give us an option to pay a early termination fee and leave!!!

What news are you reading? Android is not a company but a phone operating system. GOOGLE acquired Motorola, not Android. GOOGLE's 2011 revenues were 37.9 billion, NOT 22 million. Google acquired Motorola for 12.5 billion, NOT 20 billion.

Again, where are you getting this information? The AT&T ETF is $325 less $10 for each month of your contract which has been completed. It is NOT $35. Verizon has a similar, although slightly higher ETF of $350 less $10 for each month of your contract which has been completed.

Yes, we can hear you, but you are not making any sense!

The future could be Windows Phone if people can open their minds and take a look a something new. Windows Phone Mango is the best phone I ever had and my phone is a first generation model since Verizon only offers one model. If Verizon would give them the same push they gave Android, Windows Phone would be in a different place now. I had an Android device for 2 years and it was great disappointment. Now I am happy with this phone which I got on October 2011 but I would like to see it running on new hardware. Unfortunatly it seems that I would have to move my family account to AT&T if I want to get a new device. Verizon thinks that because they are a giant company they can do whatever they want but bigger giants have lost their status because they didn't listen to their customers and failed to recognize a better product.
