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!!
    Wow, my condolences. Here's to a better new year!

I turned NFC off as I have no use for it, but I left location services on.
    I just installed the Nokia Drive beta app, and haven't seen any changes. There is a setting in the Portico update that allows for constant WiFi connection even when it's asleep. You might need to check to see if that could be the bigger.

    My phone just went for 3 hours and is 3% down, so something "weird" was going on last night... not sure what.

    All in all, it's an excellent phone, I've very happy wit it and I have no regrets at all. I would buy another in a heartbeat!

    I talked to a lady at ATT tonite on their Instant Messenger( live Chat ).. she told me their Nokia Lumia 920 was $ 449.99 WithOut a contract, plus $50.00 per month prepaid,plus all those tax, that covers everything they have, I didn't write down all the minutes, such , 4GB daduda...etc.(you get fast browsing with 4G LTE speeds powered by the 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon™ processor and 32GB of internal storage plus SkyDrive® cloud storage.)

    With this same Phone for $99.99, plus a 2 year contract,( one time purchase ) plus the montly fee for service ,
    the total charges per month will $79.99 plus all those tax
    .
    the tax charge list, she sent to me instantly on a pop-up screen.
    I later copied and sent to myself. those extra charges as outlined in the letter form.

    They show 5 colors on line tonite, I clicked to have the red one, which matches my car.
    Black, White, Cyan,Rred, Yellow .these colors are shown on line
    I did not purchase tonite. I want to go to their store , talk to a live person, hold the phone in my hands.. etc.

    Minor issues, less significant than the issues I had with the iPhone 3GS, that's for sure!!

    I got the iPhone 3GS when the iPhone 4 was released and the battery life, rebooting, slowness, failure to send/receive calls, etc... drove me crazy. I'm on AT&T, which is part of the problem. Apple's answer was "buy a new phone", so I did, I got the Lumia 920!
