    Hi All,

    Just got L920 and Find My Phone is not working. Keep getting "We're sorry, but we can't locate your phone right now. But we'll keep trying..." message on the windows phone site.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Same problem here with my new 822 on Verizon. WindowsPhone.com still shows my old Trophy associated with my account, not my new 822. And subsequently, I can't reinstall any of my old, paid apps! I'm still looking for a resolution, but I would think this transition should just work.

    I just went to WindowsPhone.com to try the Find My Phone feature and it is working for 8X. It's location was shown correctly and I tried making it ring and it worked as well.

    Perhaps it takes some time on their system to properly register your phone. I remember I changed my phone name with the Win8 app the first time I connected it on my computer and it didn't showed that name right away. After a couple of hours, it was changed there.

    I was able to resolve this issue. What I did was I first "reset to factory" then when going through the steps, make sure select/check the "Send mircosoft my location when phone gets activated..." something like that option. Then go to the windowsphone.com and it should work.

    Let me know how it went for you.

    There may be a lag after you first set up the phone. Find the phone didn't work for me first time I tried it Friday, but it zeroes right in now.
