Nokia Lumia 822 Windows 8 16GB Verizon and GSM Unlocked Smartphone

Designed similarly to Nokia's popular Lumia 820, the 822 delivers many of the features that distinguish the Lumia line, such as the tile-based Windows Phone 8 mobile platform and a speedy Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core processor. A wealth of camera technology upholds the Lumia's reputation for snagging pristine pictures and video. The smartphone is also unlocked to give you the flexibility of choosing Verizon's CDMA network or a GSM carrier such as AT&T or T-Mobile.

Customize Your Experience

The tile-based Windows Phone 8 operating system lets you decide what content gets priority. Place tiles to emphasize the experience you want—stay social by pinning Facebook and Twitter tiles, favor productivity by pinning email and Microsoft Office tiles, or focus on entertainment with Xbox and Netflix.

Capture Superb Pictures and Video

The 8-megapixel rear camera with Carl Zeiss lens captures highly detailed images, and it records video in lifelike detail with up to 1080p Full HD. Downloadable lenses such as Smart Shoot and Panorama let you expand the camera's capabilities further so you get the kinds of shots you want. On the front, a 1.2MP camera supports high-definition video chat over apps such as Skype HD.

Explore the World

Nokia's HERE suite of apps unearth nearby attractions and guide you to them. HERE City Lens and Local Scout show you what neighborhood events are happening, as well as local restaurants, shops, and blacksmiths. HERE Drive+ and HERE Maps then lead the way with spoken turn-by-turn directions and even recommendations for public transit.

Overall good phone. Love that it has a front and rear facing camera. Makes it an upgrade over my Nokia Lumia 520, but beware. If you are with AT&T, you will most likely not be able to receive MMS or group texts. I tried for days to fix the setting so it would work with my data plan, all to no avail. I am not having to go back to my old phone.

Phone works great! Unbelievable price. Even though its over a year old it is still a major upgrade over my brand new Nokia 521. Finally can use the flashlight app since this phone has a flash. Another thing is that it comes nicely packaged for a refurbished phone.

While the phone is an overall decent product by itself there are significant performance issues once you leave the Verizon network. I am with T-mobile and am unable to send or receive group texts, receive pictures via text, and sending pictures via text is spotty. I also have to turn off my data if I want to send basic text messages. When I looked up the phone this defect was noted by a slew of dissatisfied customers who were now stuck with a phone they could not even sell, as the GSM network issues make the \"Unlocked\" feature useless. I will likely just sell for parts.

The lumia has cheap plastic feel to it. It would not syn my contacts which is the reason I returned it. I also did no like the windows interface. I think the apple and android interface/starting menus are easier to navigate.

Great device, lightweight, clear screen, good camera. With the addition of Windows Phone 8.1, takes the experience to an even higher level. I will warn those of you that plan on using it on AT&T bands, that although its unlocked, it will do everything except receive MMS. I'm still having to tinker with the settings to receive them, but the normal AT&T settings does not work on all of these particular models. Some people have had some success.

Texting does not work properly with t-mobile. Do not get phone if you will be using t-mobile network.
