    There seems to be a TON of Canadians here, aside from me. I'm wondering if we can start a chat thread like the India and Philippines one :)
    The 1308 update was just out a few hours ago, who got it, and have you guys had any problems?

    Mine seems to be running flawlessly after the update!

    Damn that sucks! I was really looking forward to that. The red theme on my 920 is ugly, but it was perfect on my 900.

    I believe that will come in he next update. Is 1308 GDR2? Or it's a pre-patch before it?

    Yeah, the storage UI is absolutely stunning!

    I think the default colours we were given with are way to high in contrast that it doesn't blend well with certain features and live tiles. I notice that the red one in particular and the cobalt blue is high in contrast as well.

    I just recently switched to cobalt from steel and I am finding it okay, the red is ugly and it does not feel red to me, more of an orange.

    What up fellow Canuck? I just finished updating my phone and so far so good! It is a pretty good idea to get a Canadian group, eh? That way we can give keep each other up to snuff with WP8/920 news at the Canadian level... How do you like the WP8 OS vs. your previous one? I was peviously a Blackberry user and made the switch without ever looking back. I love how intuitive and modern the WP8 OS is. I have nothing negative to say about BB, even with the new Z10 and all. The only criticism I have towards Microsoft is the lack of WP8 marketing $, because we all know how much of a complete eco-system they have with XBOX, Windows 8 (PC or tablet) and WP8 and that nothing is being promoted. My 2nd rant is the fact that they're not giving NOKIA enough LOVIN'. If anyone has gone beyond the call of duty with the relaunch of the Windows Phone, it's NOKIA. They're seriously the coolest cats on the block.

    Anyhow dude, that was my rant and please keep me posted should you ever get a WP8/920 Canadian group goin'.

    Cheers.

    GO CANADIANS xD. Just installed my update. Cleared only 900+ MB of temp files, wish i can get rid of the 3GB Other files too.. But I love how you can see the details of the storage and find out who are the storage hoggers, i'm going to list them in a new thread soon. So far so good, no problem

    eh, indeed! Did anyone notice the change to WiFi? There is a Static IP option there now, was that always there and I just somehow ignored it all this time?
    GLG!

    Hello fellow Canadians. Been a WP user since the beginning. Still love using it to this day compared to an iPhone which I got bored after 6 months. Nokia is the best company by far.

    Crazy how there is no marketing here in Canada, even with Nokia...WP gets no love...
    I've been in Europe and WP (mostly Nokia) seem to be super popular in some areas...I saw lots of Nokia Lumia 800's and 610's and some 920's...

    Rogers has been alright with Windows Phone, at least the updates come through on time! But the lack of Visual Voicemail irks me, and those Canadian banks not putting out any WP apps, don't get me started there. Otherwise, I am a very happy Lumia 920 user (as well as Surface Pro and non-touch Windows 8 PC).

    I saw someone on the bus next to me with L920, and few days ago a 8X in the wild too. Definitely an improvement. C'mon ppl stop using BB and join the amazing world of WP already...

    Canadians with a windows phone are a rare breed indeed. Everyday I take the streetcar too and from work and all I see is a sea of iPhones.....its just sad. Seems like most don't even know wp exists.

    ....but the last few times I've gone out with friends people have started to take notice.

    Both times someone would see my phone and say "that's a windows phone, right?". I'd hand it off, people would gather and kinda marvel at this strange new is that moves and changes....ya know, unlike a grid of dead icons.

    Anyway, the last time someone asked about it I showed then how to use it and they seem kinda shocked at how much more user friendly it is and how the philosophy behind the hubs and how you connect with people is so easy and fluid.

    Lastly I showed a quick video I took and they were blown away (I've got a 920). It was just a vid of me on my balcony showing a 360 view but they couldn't believe it. Said it looked 3d.

    One guy, an admittedly huge apple supporter..everything he has is apple said "That's my next phone." while pointing at it with conviction in his eyes ahaha.

    Peeps are starting to see there is a new option out there!

    Ramble complete.

    What do you mean lack of visual voicemail? O.o

    I have a Rogers L920 and I have visual voicemail on mine..

    And yes I agree, Canadian Banks need to get their butts in gear and release apps for WP8 devices.

    I have had a 920 since launch and the 900 and Focus before that. I recently convinced a buddy to get a 920 (he waited patiently for more colours). Also my brothers have a Ativ and a LG WP7. Really happy with my 920. On a side note, people should check out the location based game Greed City. would be nice to start seeing more Canadians.
