Discussion: Making the Switch to Windows Phone; How Hard Is It?

| June 25, 2013 | 32 Replies

A couple days ago I posted a question on the Windows Phone subreddit about making the switch to Windows Phone, the point of which was to see what the hardest OS to leave was; and what features people missed most. I know a lot of our readers made the switch from a previous Nokia device, be it Meego or Symbian so it was interesting to see feedback from other OS users.

What’s the hardest OS to switch over from to WP? (self.windowsphone)

Just wondering, I switched to WP about 2 years ago straight from my Nokia N8 (running Symbian)- so I didn’t face any issues with the whole lack of apps thing (seeing how even two years ago WP was better than Symbian ever was); and I ported over my contacts through the transfer app, and never looked back.

But what’s the hardest OS to cut all strings with and get on the WP wagon? short of the “apps not being available” what other issues have you faced while switching?

I imagine iOS users miss iMessage? (and BB users BBM), but what would complicate the switch besides that? And for Android users as well.

Cheers 🙂
