    Thanks guys for all the good info. I think I will try Tapatalk. We'll see how it can deal with my German accent. Maybe I should use the German version (if there is a thing like that) and then run it thru Google Translate, LOL.

    LOL! We shouldn't laugh. That would be a great embedded program for a text box. You could speak in German (or any language) and it would translate it to English words in the text box to post.

    BTW, Bing has a terrific translator.

    Yes, I was waiting for this,, I may take advantage of Verizon Edge program and get the latest phone
    Almost went with ICON,, but figured I would wait till after build thinking that something new had to be right around the corner.

    May be getting a new phone soon. We will see. Thanks for the info

    Well,, I was dumb and gave up our old WP7 phones,, not sure why.

    But with the Edge plan, once you upgrade, you have to turn it in. Due to the fact that you can upgrade once you pay half the cost of Retail, which is generally a year, so you can upgrade every year instead of 2 and no contract, if you pay it off it is your (full retail,, which takes about 2 years).

    I figure, since we are paying these things off over that 2 year time frame anyway, might as well take advantage of the Edge deal. Only makes the bill about $15 more a month, but can upgrade within a year.

    I am so glad that I do not need a phone - just a toy.

    We got rid of our land line.
    So cells are our only form of communication.
    It's nice to have a good one in this case

    There actually is, so far Samsung is going to be throwing out their new Ativ SE around April 18th for $600 off contract.
    Samsung ATIV SE with Windows Phone 8.1 Coming to Verizon on April 18 for $600

    As for Nokia, that may see a wait for a Verizon variant. Unfreakingfortuantely, they probably will release all new handsets for att exclusively, maybe a lower end model for T-Mobile. If they were smart and listened to the bajillion people that complain about att, they would just do what every other manufacturer does; build one handset and release it on all carriers.
