    I Have a problem in lumia 520 where in which the "accent colour" or "tile colour" automatically resets to "violet" colour when i restart the phone.
    I could not get it normal. Even if i change the colour to something like "cobalt(blue)" ,i always see the violet colour after restart.


    Hope you dont mind seeing my next problem

    Sometimes when i press screen lock button,the LCD takes a few seconds to go completely off(the display disappears but there is still some backlight visible but then disappears),this only happen at random presses

    Hi,

    are you on the Amber update and/or gdr2!?

    have you tried soft resetting the phone! (back up essential data before you do)?

    was this problem around recently or when you purchased device?

    No Amber update is not yet released for Lumia 520,im waiting for it

    I have not tried soft resetting the phone as i fear i may lose all apps even after backup,moreover i m new to windows phone
    so i m not sure how to reset

    This problem did not happen when i purchased the phone,but i could notice the problem after installing an app called "Connectivity Tiles"
    Im not sure whether this app caused the problem,it may be a glitch or something

    I'll see whether GDR2 update can fix the issues.

    yes ashwin try uninstalling the connectivity tiles app, there may be a bug in it or unstable release that is affecting the rest of the theme of the live tiles!

    Hopefully Amber update will come and improve things a little:

    for newbies to WP8 Amber update please check this:

    What's new in the GDR2 and Lumia Amber Windows Phone updates? (most detailed breakdown of what to expect from the update)

    hope that helps!

    ok, i just got an update that GDR2 Amber for Lumia 520 is ready.But is it recommended to install as i hear some people reporting weird issues after updation.

    Is there a way where i can download the update through data connection(3g) because im in a place where there is no wifi connectivity at all.
