Microsoft/Nokia/AT&T are going for the throat with Lumia 920 pricing

Is $99 for the Nokia Lumia 920 cheap enough to make you switch to Windows Phone 8?

Hate to break it to you but these things exist on iOS as well. I've got a jailbroken 4S and it FC's out of an app at least once a day, it takes a good 10 seconds sometimes to get the camera app open, and Safari takes a good 5 seconds to open the first time. My wife's iPhone 4 is even worse, though I believe a large part of my problem is all of the jailbroken tweaks I have.

Contrary to public opinion, it doesn't just work. It just works if you're a complete technology idiot, and it's only because you don't know better (e.g. my wife, who is actually somewhat savvy, doesn't see how slow her 4 is.)

I also have a jailbroken iPhone (4 to be exact) and I have no problems opening any apps. Safari opens in about 1 second, Chrome about 1 second, camera app in about 2 seconds. MyWi and other Cydia apps work flawlessly. Basically sounds like PICNIC is your problem.

Then again, I am not a "technology idiot" so making it "just work" was rather simple.
