Nokia Lumia 830 – Our Journey Making the Switch #LumiaSwitch #TeamRevolt

by Heather


Attached at the hip.

Ever heard that phrase? Me neither, I just totally made it up. Honestly. Right this very second. Well, 20 or so seconds ago. It describes me and my phone. 20 years ago? Not so much. I was old enough to have a pager, so it obviously didn’t describe me. 5 years ago? Still not so much. I had an LG flip phone that I could use to call text or take pictures, and that’s about it.

Then I got a smartphone.

Yep. Attached at the hip. That’s me. And I’m not even sad about it. It’s like trying to imagine not having the Internet. I’m sure there are people that wish we could go back 30 years ago and get rid of the internet, not me. It’s not perfect by any means, but it makes so many things so much easier. And so it is with my phone. I know that Apple came out with the first smartphone, but I’ve never been a fan of Apple, for many reasons. My first smartphone was an underpowered, never updated, Android from Huawei. Not a great first experience. I got rid of that a couple years ago for a phone from a rather prominent Korean company whose name rhymes with “ham hung.”

And now…someone wants me to switch. Again. It was hard enough to move from one Android phone to another. Even though it was totally worth it. And now someone wants me to switch to a windows phone? Really? Inconceivable.

Yes, that was totally a reference to The Princess Bride.

But seriously. It’s been two years. I don’t want to switch to an entirely different platform. Talk about a pain.

But I tried it.

Talk about easy. I can’t even tell you how long it took. Seriously. I can’t. I forgot to set a timer or anything and it took so little time. Started the process, got up and walked away and came back 5 minutes later and it was done. I was expecting it to still be running. You simply back up your files to Microsoft OneDrive, which I already was using on my Android phone. So when I logged in to my new Nokia Lumia 830, it was already there. And so were all my files. All my pictures and videos!


Honestly it was easier to go from my Android to this new Windows phone than it was to go from my first android smartphone to my second. And this is just the first step in my journey. I can’t wait to see what’s next. Join me on my #LumiaSwitch Adventure.

All I have is a land line. I wouldn't even know what to do with a smart phone. I can see how once you have one, you'd come to rely on it.

I have the Nexus 6 and the Samsung Galaxy 5 and I love them both.

This is awesome! I love my Lumia 830 and really love Windows - although I admit I was skeptical at first!

I have a Samsung Note, which I really like. I have heard a lot of good things about Lumia and would certainly consider looking into it when it's time to get a new phone.

I have always love okia technology since the cell phones first came out.

I currently have the Samsung Galaxy S3 and I am due for an upgrade well I've been and I am just so stirred about where I should go. I have had great success with Samsung products and I do love my phone, (other than the battery dies quick) I am in no hurry to switch and enjoy reading reviews on what others have had luck with!
