There is only so much I will take from the Nokia/Windows Phone team before I get tired of the hype. I jumped ship from Android because I got tired of my phone rebooting and/or not working properly. Yes, apps are fun and so arae widgets, but they have to work. iPhone is too expensive and too boring, even though I own an iMac, iPad and an Apple TV.
That live tiles only update every 30 minutes and apps have to be started every 14 days is a little weird and annoying, but good on battery I guess. But now for the "fun" part, Facebook messages. I have read in other threads that Windows Phone 8 has a problem with this, or at least Nokia 920. This, I have found, is true. It works sporadically, not to mention IM+ that works even worse.
I have done some testing and found this:
When using my wife's Lumia 800 I can send a Facebook chat that my Lumia 920 picks up...sometimes (in the Messaging Hub). The Live Tiles updated it.
Sometimes my Lumia 920 shows up as "offline" even though it is online.
Using the FB website chat, that is, receiving messages from FB chat never works on my 920, although a few of my friends messages came through, but far from all.
Lumia 800 Messaging Hub always get its Facebook chats.
It seems to me that there is something wrong with WP 8, which is annoying because since when do phone upgrades take away functionality?
Any solutions, friends?
