    LOL! Did you clean up your bed, Cokie?!!

    Is this trial phone activated with a carrier?

    Last night my wife and I attended a local funeral and my phone went from 100% charge to 66% in three hours. I need to troubleshoot again... It took over 3 hours to recharge it back to 100%

    HAHAHA!!! Yep, things are cleaned up!


    Unfortunately, it's locked on att. I'm sure as crap not going back to them for two weeks! I kind of hoped it would be an unlocked device, but it's not probably since it's in the US. I'm basically using it like a tablet and have a texting app installed, very worth it though!


    I'm in this high contrast theme on it with a crimson red accent that comes up here and there, whoa!! So cool! Black tiles and white background!

    Sounds like a bugger, have you updated the phone and the Nokia apps? Right now, my battery is 100% and I just took it off the charger about 10 minutes ago and got on the Interwebster Explorer 10. Still going good.

    I also just discovered a new sound in Windows Phone 8 that wasn't in 7, and I do believe this JUST got added in today. It makes a little interesting sound when you unplug it, kind of like playing with springs almost.

    The metro companion app to Windows Phone 8 is pretty neat! Simple, does what I need it to, only gripe is that you can't tell what's already on your phone when you go to add content on it. And, I've noticed with the app is that when your phone is on high contrast or you've set the background color to white, the app on Windows 8 reflects that, as well as your phone's accent color. Pretty freaking cool!

    Yep, I applied all of the updates the other day (Portico) and everything was fine and I rebooted my phone. When we got back from the funeral, the phone was very warm and the battery was down to 66% in 3 hours from a full charge. I'll uninstall Nokia Drive (Beta) again. I turned NFC off as I have no use for it, but I left location services on.

    @ Cokie

    For two weeks?!! I think it would be worth it if you could give Parks a call!

    @Art

    Sorry to read about the funeral. Was it someone close to you?

    Tony,
    Thanks for asking. Our friend's 94 year old father passed in his sleep, which was what he wanted and deserved, he was an exceptionally good man, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. It was not a sad funeral, but one of thanksgiving and celebration. It seems like we're going to a lot of funerals lately, mostly our friend's parents and my wife's parents aren't in very good health, so this Christmas will be especially memorable for that reason. Our exchange student (17 year old girl from Norway) is surprised how many funerals we have gone to since August when she arrived. The saddest one was our daughter's boyfriend. He was in a car crash, walked off and left his phone, etc... and his body was found 2 miles away in a retention pond, so that was tragic on all counts. It's been a rough year for us, but we're hoping for a better one next year!!

    So sorry to hear of all the funerals. If his life was not of good quality at age 94 and if that was his wish, then I feel that it's a good thing. It's also honorable to celebrate a good man's life at his funeral.

    What's tragic is your daughter's boyfriend's death. How sad for all to lose life at such a young age. We've had our unfair share in our family.

    Hello guys, I've read from the first page until the last page already, and the Lumia 920 just have several minor issues, which already solved if I'm not wrong?
    I'm thinking to get one, and since you guys have use it and didn't regret at all, which means is very good for you !

    I'm living in Malaysia, heard that the phone arrive here few days ago, so I expect the price still might be expensive.
