    Hi,

    This is definitely a software issue.

    You should reset the phone by going to settings>about phone and scrolling down to reset button (don't forget to back up all essential data)

    this reset will take you back to the factory settings when you purchased it. You can install the amber update again and see how glance works. If theres still a issue try to go to your local phone provider and seek their assistance.

    you can also try this:

    Contact local support - Nokia (chooose your country)

    Hope that helps!

    Doing a factory reset doesn't uninstall Amber update.... It just wipes out your phone of everything. Once you install a firmware it is there for good unless you flash your phone with another ROM.

    So, try a soft-reset first (hold volume down and power buttons simultaneously until your phone vibrates...) and see if it fixes your problem...
