I'm not sure if the free, ad-less versions of Draw Something and Words with Friends offered on T-Mobile's Lumia 810 are the same version as the actual paid game, but regardless - they are free - so I have a request.
Can somebody with a Lumia 810 download one or both of these games from the Zynga app on your 810 and create a game by searching for my username? (Same as here: Mystictrust) I've never played this game before but it seems like I can't get started because I drew like 5 things but it seems to keep saying that I am "waiting" on the other person. I got a notice that someone sent me a drawing but that person's name wasn't on my list and I never got a drawing. So I can't play the game!
I've heard the WP version of this game is buggy anyway, but I just wanted to try with someone who can tell me for sure that they've drawn something or whatever. Please?

Wish my 810 had gotten here today like I was hoping, because I would have been more than happy to do this. :( Alas, I'm still waiting.
Can you still play Words with Friends in this version by connecting to Facebook? I always play it with Facebook friends on my iPhone.

Yep, you can connect to Facebook.
Someone sent me a Words with Friends game request! Oh, I played a word and they played another word... it works! I sent some messages for chat, but I can only see mine, despite the game saying I received a message, oh well. Will be a quiet game I guess :P
Edit: I'm getting my butt kicked. I'm such a noob.

Well, "kind" is an understatement if you're scoring 123 points off the word "Quaked"!!!! I'm not sure what all the colored squares mean with DL, TL, and DW... but by that word I have to assume they give extra points.
So, on an 820, eh? Very fitting that someone on the AT&T "Deathstar" network is completely destroying me :P
I hope these Zynga guys get off their butts and fix the bugs in their Windows Phone port! Chat should be working. I would also love it if they enabled "fast resume" because, as a new WP user, I keep forgetting to launch from the app list and instead use the start screen. Then it takes me extra long to get back into the game. Fast resume would fix all that, and it's only like an extra line or two of code! Well, assuming this is for WP8 only :P
metalchick, I take it you're a seasoned vet at this game? :P

DL - double letter
TL - triple letter
DW - double word
TW - triple word
It's very similar to Scrabble, if you've ever played that. :) Best to put a good letter that's worth a good amount of points (such as a J) on a DL or TL tile.

I think I played scrabble ages ago when I was a kid, and even then I only knew to make words out of the letters and never knew a thing about the double letter, double word, etc stuff.
Alright BellaRed, I'm armed with new info. Watch out! :P

No freezing for me yet (knock on wood). Does it still resume the same game after reboot? Or do you mean it just rebooted on you now?
Ha! "Furthest" with double word and double letter score... 65 points... I'm catching up! :P

i rebooted phone to unlock it as I couldn't close the app or go back. Totally stuck.
50 points for using all 7 letters I think you get..... It's rare i get to do that!
In a lot of ways you are only as good as the letters you get. :)

As for Words By Post? I was so excited when I got my highest word score AND finally topped someone's score! Game's not over yet, though! I still have no idea how just the simple, "strategic" placement of the Z got me 44 points... it HAD to have been a double word tile, and I got two words.

I installed Words with Friends first thing after getting my 810 last night. Didn't open it until around five hours later. I managed to play a turn in one game I've got going but when I went to the next, my phone froze! :( I didn't know how to reset it, so I ended up pulling the back off and pulling the battery out. Really bugged me that that happened, but good thing I don't have a 920, eh?

You gonna try Words with Friends again? Or you gonna download Words by Post and see how that is? Either way, send me a game request :)
