    I think you're suppose to do recovery mode, not refurbish.

    Did in windows 8, you do not need to do in compatibilty mode. Install the drivers from the Nokia Care Suite folder to enable the phone to be seen. Make sure you download the correct firmware from Navifirm for your device or it will kick it out. Run refurbish...not recovery to flash the phone. Its rather simple step by step.

    I tried the recovery mode too, and it kept saying that the application lost connection with my phone. I repeated the process about 10-15 times, and I'm getting the same error. PLEASE help me.

    I flashed it the day it came out and it is awesome! I've got to make it to November for my upgrade and this will get me through just fine. Does anyone know if there will be any Nokia 900 specific firmware updates? Just wondering if I'll need to flash back to 7.5 and let Zune update my phone when the official update comes out.

    Flashing a full firmware via NCS updates everything you would get via the update process so no need to downgrade to try to get other updates. In other words you have to full official update.

    How will this update to the OS effect apps already installed?

    How will it effect push email? This is my work phone and has Microsoft Mail installed with complete and full access to my work email. Will it effect this in any way?

    It will wipe your phone clean as if you started it for the first time. All data is lost so make sure you do a backup or sync with zune first.
