Watch “A night out with the Windows Phone Nokia Lumia 928” on YouTube


I took two pictures of my Windows representative after he gave me a demo of the features on the Nokia Lumia 928.

The first picture was taken with my Droid HTC DNA and the second with the Windows Lumia 928. Both phones were not optimized for these pictures, the factory out of the box camera settings were used.

You have an eye for the lens. Wherever you are, you see the perfect scene to capture with your smartphone’s camera. Recording your daughter’s recital. Tossing a ball with the neighbor’s dog. A new vase full of flowers on your kitchen table. With the Verizon-exclusive Nokia Lumia 928, you get a camera that shines bright in a smartphone that runs on the familiar Windows Phone 8 and shares with the speed of 4G LTE. It’s simply…powerful.

Verizon Wireless changed the prepaid plans again

The new plans for smartphones are $60 for unlimited talk and text with 2 gigabytes of data or $70 for unlimited talk and text with 4 gigabytes of data. These new plans still only work with 3G phones only. I think in the near future Verizon Wireless will allow 4G devices on the prepaid plans because at&t just started allowing 4G smartphones on their prepaid offerings. Verizon Wireless usually mimics at&t with the plans.

How to send text or pictures to a cellphone’s email address.

I was asked why can’t my Apple iPhone 4S that is working on Net10 send MMS (picture messages) to other phone numbers. That is because the phone is not working on the wireless carrier it was made for. The Apple iPhone 4S was made only for at&t and Verizon Wireless, so the carrier settings in the phone that allows it to send picture messages to other phone numbers won’t work on MVNOs (Prepaid carriers) like Net10 but there is a workaround.

Verizon Wireless has new Smartphone prepaid plans

The new Smartphone plans are $60 for unlimited talk, text and 500 megabytes of data or $70 for unlimited talk, text and 2 gigabytes of data. The Smartphones can not be 4G only 3G and 2G phones are allowed on the prepaid plans at this time.

I have activated an Apple iPhone 4 on this plan for a client a few weeks ago. I have heard the Verizon Wireless corporate owned stores will not activate iPhones but I can, just contact me on the form above. The phone you are activating can not be on the lost or stolen list for Verizon.
