    Does anyone know the new code to install the Diagnostics app on the 920? ##634# doesn't work, it now opens a 'Color and Counter' app instead.

    Nothing yet. ##634# for me opens the life timer.

    Bump...

    Finding this app for the 920 will help the people track down battery hogging apps, using the amp meter function.

    I asked the question on one of the "official" Nokia blogs, and "Kosh," a Nokia Community Manager, shot me down. Obvious bullsh*t, of course. But why Nokia wouldn't allow customer access, is beyond me. Collectively, we could solve the app/battery questions a lot faster...

    "The diagnostics tool is no longer available in Windows Phone 8."

    See posts 4 and 5 below:

    We need a mole inside Nokia to give us the secret code....

    ##3282# just returns my phone number on my 920. I just got LTE in my area and my battery went from a nice 2-days per charge to a not-so-nice 6-8 hours per charge. But boy, can I ever text message super frickin fast now... totally worth it <rolleyes>

    Hopefully someone will figure the code out, and I'll just disable LTE permanently.

    ##3282 + call. This works on my unlocked L920. It opens the field test app.

    This doesn't work after the 1308 update.

    I believe AT&T has disabled any way to turn off 4G. In Australia I can go into settings and set highest connection level to 4g, 3g or 2g. Or i can use ##3282 and disable it there (although the settings way is much nicer). This is on 1308 as well. Both still work.

    The dropping of the ##3282# code was not an AT&T thing. I've got two Lumia 920s, the unlocked ones that were given out at the Microsoft Build conference. One I received at the build conference last fall, which had issues with the first upgrade that Nokia released. It has since been upgraded to 1308 without problems. During that first upgrade, it appears they also upgraded the radio firmware, which removed or changed the ##3282# field test. Because of the problems I had with that upgrade, Nokia sent me another of the developer phones, which had not been upgraded, so I updated it to the 1308 firmware. Surprisingly, the radio firmware did not upgrade. It is an older version. The older version shows "4G" when running on LTE, while the newer version on the other phone shows "L" for LTE. The newer version also doesn't launch the field test when dialing ##3282# but the old radio does. Other than that, the other firmware components are the same. So i'm not sure why the radio firmware is no longer upgrading.

    AT&T wants to decongest it's HSPA network by forcing everyone to LTE I guess. American carriers always do stuff like this.

    EE is also guilty of disabling ##3282. So yeah, it's annoying.

    Probably to force people to LTE?

    How was Orange and T-Mobile UK before the merger? When I was looking at some of the tests done by RootMetrics, they didn't seem too good.

    Oh, and may I ask where did you get that banner in your sig with your phone history? I want something like that, and I knew I saw it before, I guess it was yours that I saw.

    Not sure it is to force people to LTE as I can still choose between 3G and 4G. I think it's to force people off 2G more than anything else.

    I never really used Orange before the merger. Was always an O2 person.

    And as for the sig, try the link in the signature image (if there is one)
