    Two hours without reboot is good! Still hoping it holds!

    Cute daughter, Geeve! I take it she looks more like her mother?

    She does look a lot like her mother for sure, but in no way can I deny she is mine

    Yeah the camera is crazy good. the auto flash was on and it didn't even flash. She told me it was some app she downloaded that takes like 5 pics really quickly and you can pick the best one. Kinda cool if you ask me!

    Since the exchange we have had no trouble with the phone at all, it runs like a champ! I am still thinking it was a bad batch as the one we have now said it was built later than the first one we got. I want one for myself really bad, come on January!!!


    Edit: the photo app was called "Smart Shoot"

    There is this Nokia lens app I've read that that you can take like, five pictures, and you can edit out certain bits from that image to perfect it. There is also another one that makes like a .gif image. For example, a picture of someone posing in front of a flag can have that person as a still image, where the flag is waving in the background. It's like Harry Potter magic!!

    Oh good! Happy wife = happy husband for sure! I love a happy ending to an adventure.

    My contact is up with Vz at the end of January, also. I've already made up my mind to get a Lumia. I'm buying outright and forgetting contracts. I'll go prepay. 10 more weeks and counting!

    But, that means I'll have to wait on my Surface Pro or another mobile machine until Spring unless I land a good contract, which I doubt right now. Things are lean for me now. I haven't made my mind up on which machine yet. On the other hand, hopefully they'll have kinks worked out of the Windows 8 machines by then.

    BTW, I've never been to heaven, but I've been to Oklahoma. Great place and great song!

    Speaking of prepaid, you might have to import it from Rogers Canadia as they have the unlocked pentaband Lumia 920. Theoretically T-Mobile should have their LTE network refarmed for the 1900 frequency as the Lumia 920 doesn't support the 1700 bandwidth they use for theirs. I need to go and interrogate them about this as they have a Lumia 710 on their prepaid 4G service that runs on their 1900 GHz bandwidth.

    30 dollar monthly fees without contractual obligation, here I come!

    I'm now facing the dreaded "random battery drain issue"... My L920 has completely drained from 100% battery to less than 20% in an hour or so several times this week. I did some of the things that were recommended on this site (Nokia Lumia 920 - Windows Phone Central Forums) and so far, so good. I'm hoping the problem is software-related and not an ongoing issue. I still love the phone, I just want to get this issue resolved...

    Sorry to hear that Art. Running apps in the background usually the culprits. I'm sure you know that.

    Yep, I've uninstalled almost everything and have killed all background tasks, then I'll run it for awhile and add things one at a time. Intermittent problems are the worst kind to troubleshoot!

    Good way to go about it. Does Windows 8 phone have a startup folder like the OS? Any kind of app startup options? Android doesn't. One has to kill them at reboot. Then there's some you can't kill and no option to uninstall. Then there's apps that aren't "available through your service provider" What a crock! One should be able to have more control. That's the problem with locked phones and service contracts.

    Rant over.

    Battery drain issues are really the awful part of these phones. No matter the make, seems they always have the same issues. Tons of crap apps available which might be horrible on battery life. Seems like with a new phone you spent the first few days installing tons of stuff and then the next few days uninstalling everything trying to determine which is draining the battery.
