  • AKA Elop's severance package.
  • Ha!
  • As someone said yesterday, they really should include a year of Xbox music with new phones.
  • That would be cool
  • That would constitute as an real marketing effort. Strictly forbidden by Nandela.
  • Now that's an idea!
  • Any news on when/where the optional color backs will be available? I don't yet see them on the phone's page.
  • I saw them on the Verizon accessory page when you add the phone to your cart. 
  • Verizon accesories...but they're i think a lil bit expensive because of that 25$ price tag...but who knows...maybe price will drop in the meantime...and maybe u could find some on ebay or something :)
  • Please someone educate me on this office 365 i don't get the connection between phone and and music pass makes absolute sense to me
  • Well, an Office 365 subscription also comes with 1GB of OneDrive storage space, which is very useful to mobile phone owners. Perhaps they should be marketing it that way instead.
  • Lol you mean 1 TB. 1 GB would be insulting haha
  • Ha, yes, I meant 1TB. 1GB sounds like a Dropbox promotion. Ba dum, tssh!
  • 1TB actually Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • That Verizon logo is hideous.
  • The Sega Saturn logo is the best ever.
  • Totally agree!
  • I'm considering leaving Verizon just because the logo is so ugly. It's like bad graffiti on my phone.
  • What is that thing around camera hole? NFC? I know the bottom one is wireless charger thing
  • The contacts on top are NFC.
  • 640 on cricket still a better deal. Only thing its missing is Qi.
  • actually the camera quality of the 735 is better than the 640
  • Yes. Way better. Especially low light photoes are.
  • @sauce
    Dude, who cares. As a Verizon customer, I could care less about phones on Cricket.
  • Where can I find this wallpaper please ?
  • N1 getting company.
  • An Office 365 subscription allows users to access Office 365 apps on one smartphone AND one tablet and one PC.  Not one smartphone OR tablet.  I know, I just bought a Surface 3 with Office 365 included for a year.
