Ok... Given WalMart's FREE price, and Best Buy's price match, and my wife's willingness to accept a hand-me-down should Verizon get a 9xx, I went ahead and picked up an 822 tonight.
I've only had it an hour. I just got home, so I've hardly handled it, but first off, I'm shocked by how light it is. It's actually lighter than Trophy. And believe it or not, thinner. It's going to take some getting used to, using one hand, and I think I'm going to want a case for it, just to make it a bit more substantial in my hand. It just feels to thin to me... But that's me, and I like something a bit thicker, just a personal preference. From the pictures, I really thought it would be thicker.
The screen is GORGEOUS. Compared to Trophy, well, let's not even compare it to Trophy. Compared to 8x (Went to the Verizon store first, just because I wanted to see them side by side), I really think it made the 8x screen look a tad washed out. 8x looks good, don't get me wrong, but next to it, 822 really pops.
And I'm sitting here at my dining table, with the lights dimmed, and I just turned it on for a moment, and wow, it does something no other phone I've had has ever done. It is a LOT dimmer given the ambient light. I've had other phones that SAID that they got dimmer, but this one GETS dimmer. NICE.
I have mine as well. Having an issue with visual voice mail; getting data connection error and I have the Nokia DT-900 charging plate but its not working. Not sure if its the plate or the phone
According the accessory page the DT-900 it says the 822 isn't compatible which make no sense... Anyone have the DT-900 and have it working?
I didn't get the charging plate, so I can't help you there. And I haven't tried the Visual Voice Mail yet. I got as far as it telling me that I qualify for a free trial, and backed out, not wanting to go any further until I find out what the "not trial" will cost through Verizon. I'm not wanting to let them get their hooks into me for any more than they already have.....
Visual Voice Mail started working for me this morning They will ding you $3 a month for the convience of seeing you voice mails.
Now on to figuring out about the charging plate....
Overall a very nice phone and a great OS; still want a 920 variant
I have a Grey 822 only thing I am not finding is the Group Text function that was on my Trophy under settings--> messaging, am I missing something or is there another way to do this or is it just on by default on LTE enabled or WP8 devices?
Just so y'all see it - does anyone else have a problem sending picture messages? Someone on wpcentral posted that his worked when he went to 3G, but doesn't work in LTE. I haven't been in 3G to try, but it definitely doesn't work in LTE...
