After damages done to their more expensive phones. Then Nokia gives them a cheap lumia 630 that has a 5mp camera with no rear camera flash, and no front facing camera, 512mb of ram and 8gb of storage. Not to mention the low resolution display (854x480).

You didn't notice their phones. Nokia choose people who using cheap phones then they did this and give away 630.

So that makes it right to give them a cheaper phone? What if some of them could take selfies or video chat with their family or friends. The 630 can't do that.
One guy that was taking a picture of the gold soccer guy. His phone looked expensive. It even looked like he was going to beat the soccer guy who kicked the ball.

1871-2011.
On topic:
Looks like the only way to get people to use WP is to beat them into it.
Pathetic.

"Stop with the hating on WP"
I will, when it stops being bad.

Reverse psychology won't work on me.

Except that it does. Hence you pop on every single WP article. Relax dude. You love WP, its not a crime. I also love WP and so do many a million. Everyone has their secret and this is your little dirty secret.

Repeating won't make me like WP or will it help WP.

" I also love WP and so do many a million"
1 million out of a billion? Thats no good.

" Everyone has their secret and this is your little dirty secret."
So you say WP is dirty?

Yes, you'd wish that, since i'm revealing how bad WP is.

Continue with the revealing dude. I'm happy to know that there are REAL WP fans on the site like you, looking to voice their concern on some of the problems with WP. Maybe MS or Nokia will hear your pleas. Keep it up my fellow WP fan. :)

"I'm happy to know that there are REAL WP fans on the site like you"
That is the only way you could make anyone a fan of WP, by simply claiming they are when they aren't.

"Maybe MS or Nokia will hear your pleas"
That was exactly my intention. But now, since it looks like its of no use, my intention now is to warn people that Windows Phone, which you try to force upon me, is horrible.

What is wrong with you? Why forcing others to like something they dont? Do you do this to all the gals who dont like you?
Get a life....

I agree with alterecho. This is prankish and nasty. Giving me a Nokia Lumia 630 in exchange for 'my troubles' would not have been comforting. For me, the real Nokia died in 2011.

+1 for alterecho...

Yeah a 1020, 1520, or the Icon but the measly 630? Nokia just stop it and quit making the best phones exclusives please.

Lol, They should give the 930/1520/Icon instead.

Nokia haven't mastered the art of trolling, they have mastered the art of marketing and promotion of products. Learning ofcourse from the great Samsung. :)
