I had a weird issue earlier today where IE wouldn't display any web pages. The progress bar above the address box would move across and disappear like it normally does, but all I got was a white browser screen. Scrolling around didn't do anything to fix it.
I turned the phone off and back on and it fixed it, and it hasn't happened again. Weird.

Would be interested in seeing a similar bug/issue list for WP8 --- for example:
- Messages supports Facebook but not Facebook Group
- Skype not yet integrate to "Share" option (can share status updates to Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter)
- No check in capability for Foursquare (not a bug but would be a desirably feature)
And I'm only talking about the native features that MSFT has built-in -- fully acknowledging that there are workarounds for all of the above.

I have a serious issue I have not yet seen yet. As of a few hours ago, it seems my 920 activates the proximity sensor whenever I make or accept a call, regardless whether I have the phone close to my head or not.
I cannot actively end a phone call because my screen is locked and black.
I've managed to hit the "end call" button in a 1/4 or 1/2 split second when it appears if I press the power/screen lock button twice in a row, but it's very touch and go.
Has anyone else had anything like this?? I'm really really annoyed.

I've got a red 920 and haven't had any of the issues listed here, I don't even have the vibration rattle everyone seems to be talking about. Only thing I haven't tried out is pairing it to my car but I'm sure there won't be any problems with that.

I have issues with "Cut The Rope". Works fine on my old WP7 device, however if I launch the game from the games hub on my 920 it loads fine. Pin it to a tile on the start screen, and launch it from there. It doesn't work correctly, and on loading you get a strange rainbow coloured rectange in the top left of the screen with a progress bar displayed.
Then you get a black screen, and can hear the music in the background. You can even press invisible buttons.
Also after launching the game from a live tile, you get intermittent issues with the display of the live tile on the start screen. I had it where my 920 showed a blank gap where they tile used to be. In fact the tile was still there, just invisible, as I could tap it to launch the game, or resize it etc.

My black Lumia 920 froze up for the first time since I got it. I had it plugged in to charge overnight and when I woke up the screen was froze black with the Nokia logo. The three buttons on the bottom were also froze lit up. I had to hard reset the phone. Seems ok now but it definitely has me worried. Everything has been awesome with this phone up until now.

If you turn off the bluetooth device -- in my case Jam Box -- the sound will not play through your Nokia 920 for whatever source was playing at the time.
You will have to skip to another song/podcast and then go back to the one you were listening too.
When you reply to an incoming SMS via bluetooth the stream is broken if you're listening to audio (in my case podcast). Simply receiving an SMS or message and having the 920 announce it (but you don't reply by audio) seems fine.

Hey hasasimo, could you add a note or something in your original post for people to not quote it? There's no reason for people to, it's already happened a few times, and if it keeps happening it's going to make pages stupid long.

Has anyone had any problems playing audio through an audio cable to your car stereo? I tried this the other night, sometimes it was okay, sometimes I got this loud annoying tone or buzz sound.
These freeze ups are starting to get worrisome. Ive had 2 last night, and 1 this morning.

I think it may be heat related as that's where the heat is focused when I use the phone for long periods of time or when I have Nokia drive running.
Looks like it can be rubbed off though (with a little elbow grease). Considering this particular finish I'm not surprised there are slight discolorations at any given time.
Considering my phone also has a distortion issue with the earpiece already, I'm probably going to swap it out once my store has them back in stock.

most of these appear to be software related. This is most people's first attempt at Windows Phone 8 and it may differ slightly on small things from Windows Phone 7.5.
Right now we are all basically using a new/patchless OS. It can only improve from here.

one issue i had that hasn't been reported yet is that the power button on mine really loosened up and became far less responsive. as it is now, it really matters how you push it for it to work. you have to hit it right in the middle. up or down from that and it won't click. my replacement is on the way. hopefully i don't switched out one problem for another!

I've noticed with Bluetooth... That it pairs voice, music. When I use my Bluetooth stereo Headsets (LG HBS700's) while listening to music... a text will come in. It'll stop the music and read the text to me allowing me to respond with a voice command. After I respond... the music doesn't restart. I look at the settings and it will say "voice" instead of "voice, music." I have to turn off bluetooth, and restart it to get it to work correctly.
Slightly annoying. It worked flawlessly on my 900.

Also... I could not for the life of me transfer my contacts from my Lumia 900 to my Lumia 920. They're both Nokia's... they wrote the app... but they said I couldn't pair the phones. The 920 says it's paired... the 900 gets an attitude.
Now all my contacts are stored in the cloud... but I was under the assumption that groups would transfer too.

I've been having the bluetooth issues with my car as well. It paired fine but it won't automatically re-pair itself on subsequent occasions.
Another issue I'm having is inability to receive pictures through SMS (MMS). When someone sends me a photo, I get a message with "Get content now" and when I click it, it flashing between "Getting content" and quickly goes back to "Get content now" again.

On my Lumia 920, I can't receive xbox live notifications. For example, when playing a multiplayer game and it's my turn, I never receive the notice. I have to manually check.
Honestly, this is one of those bugs that is a near deal breaker for me. I'm considering returning the device. The xbox live multiplayer feature was a primary selling point in my case.
Can anyone else confirm if this is a Lumia issue, WP8 issue, or just a problem with my xbox account? My brother's old WP7 device receives the notifications just fine so I know how it is intended to work.

Although at&t charges extra for accessing corporate email and blocks it if you don't pay, you should still be able to connect when using Wifi. However, the Lumia 920 has a bug that prevents you from being able to connect to some active sync exchange accounts.
Using exactly the same settings as on my Lumia 800, which works just fine, I get the following error when using my Lumia 920:
There's a problem with isa.teradata.com.
Try again later.
Last tried 11 seconds ago
Error code: 85010014.
I've tested the active sync configuration using microsoft's test site and there do appear to be some errors, but the tests can be made to work with the right settings (ignore ssl issues) and as stated before it works just fine on the lumia 800.
I also had at&t try this with both a regular (email blocked) data plan, and the enterprise data plan (email allowed). Both failed, as it does wifi.
Data Sense has been removed by at&t
Wifi tethering requests permission from at&t in order to be turned on (not an issue)
Skype is not available. Hopefully this is 'Coming soon' and not removed by at&t
If Lumia's are supposed to have flip to silence then it's missing on the 920
Radio has been removed on the 920
cc-1043 silicon case nowhere to be found

The 920 also doesn't work with 2012 TomTom Navigation with Bluetooth which has the ability to download the phone book and make hands free calls. Lumia 900 have no problems with TomTom, all works as expected, 920 on the other hand can only connect to TomTom as an external speaker/mic. but no phonebook download, although you can make a call by dialing from TomTom.
920 is missing the following Bluetooth profiles that were present in 900, i think that's the issue here.
AVCTP 1.0, AVDTP 1.0, AVRCP 1.0, RFCOMM 1.0 bluetooth profiles are gone from 920 but included in 900.

Not sure I agree that the vibration isn't an issue. If we could get in-person comparisons of phones that people think are buzzing/rattling against phones where people don't note it, that would help (however difficult).
Nokia's customer support tells me a rattle is not expected and I should return the phone (again). I really don't see how, if every single phone does this, it was not mentioned once in any of the reviews leading to launch. The best way I can describe it would be if you take a vibrating PS3 controller and hold it about 1mm above a table. If that's "normal," I'm scared to think what else might be. Seriously, I'm not one of those impossible to please people, but this rattling is not within the range of anything I've heard a phone make.
Just like how one poster was certain the 'thud' I and others were hearing was the spring-mounted camera, after an exchange I can assure you it was an abnormal condition, as the new phone makes a noise that can be attributed to the camera, but is in no way similar to the 'thud' I heard/felt on the first unit.
