    I guess I forgot I could make them that small and just never used them at that size. When I updated, I must have just brain dumped and thought it was something new.



    I see @@ well congrats for discovering something new for yourself then xD

    I had an issue when I tried to delete a song. It had those loading dots and kept going, so I used multitasking and pressed the X to close the music app. Then I tried to reopen it and it kept crashing. I fixed it with a soft reset.

    Something interesting I see in the developer changelog is that apparently developers can now choose their own custom tone for toast notifications as well:

    Custom sounds for toast notifications. You can now use reflection to specify custom sounds for toast notifications.
    What's new in Windows Phone SDK 8.0

    I'm more excited to see that than the custom ringtones support only now added to email/SMS, personally. This would allow for things like the ESPN app working the same way as it does on other platforms, giving a SportsCenter-style tone when you get an ESPN update, for example. I hope developers take advantage of this fast, because I really dislike not being able to tell which app is beeping at me all the time.

    I've seen several references to being able to change email sounds for individual contacts. I have the GDR3 update now and can't find that anywhere. When I am on a contact I can change the ringtone and text sound. The only option for email is to add a new email address.

    Anyone have anything definitive on what the actual results for email sounds should be?
    This is false, people just keep lumping them all together. E-mail tone ability has not changed.

    I just updated and works as just fine.

    The only down side is that in WhatsApp you can't see anymore the time when you contact has been active.
    I used to check that out before sending any messages to anyone during nightime.
    And it was a great way of keeping track of the kids.

    I'm sure this is the first beta for gdr3. In 2 weeks, there should be an update.

    They've done something with contacts. I sync with Google contacts and now secondary numbers are not appearing on my phone even though the number is still under Company on the contacts detail on Google. This had worked before.

    Again, this isn't the final release. It should be fixed soon.

    I still see that, when you tap the contact.

    It still amazes me that after 3 years WP is still lacking in some real basic features, like adding search results to contacts and closings all open apps simultaneously.

    You won't loose htc Blue theme color, nor beats audio app. Everything is running ok on my HTC 8x unbranded.

    BINGO! This was the FIRST thing I noticed when migrating to WP8 from BlackBerry (and Android/iPhone - had them too).

    I even emailed MS and told them to get with the program(ing) and get this basic stuff added. I need to hold on a new contact or search result and have a drop down offer to add it to Contacts. Pronto, Tonto! :)

    I guess people truly can't be happy even when a company is updating the devices at a reasonably fast speed(this is update 3 this year....within the first year of the intro of Wp8)

    This is a minor update...wait till WP8.1 to see if they'll update some things you are complaining about(especially since the X to close app was JUST added)

    Nokia has had most of those basic features since forever. Did WP/Nokia really expect to compete against Apple and Google without having enough vision and hardware specs to push the envelope? Most of the requested features Nokia implemented in they're handsets 5 years ago. Collectively they are moving at a snails pace when you consider most of the updates are for features most people expected on launch.

    I agree with you for the most part. I am just saying that we all more or less realized that Microsoft is a bit behind in features compared to IOS and Android but despite that we still enjoy the OS and that with this being a small update to enable better hardware in the near future, I'd probably be more p*ssed if this was WP8.1 and we still lack basic features of Android/IOS in 2014.

    Maybe it is just my imagination, but I feel like transition animations between apps / pages are a bit faster.

    Yep, I can confirm, for sure!

    I like GDR3. Very nice. I noticed that the Store app shows Music + Videos icon when you look at the apps open... Sorry if someone already mentioned that.

    I kinda hoped for a battery percentage display. Wasnt that leaked somewhere to be included in gdr3? Maybe it was 8.1 then.



    I personally am glad that MS seems to push their updateprocess quite heavily, but for tge most part I wonder why they didnt inplemented it from the start, too.

    Anyway: GDR3 Preview working flawlessly on my 520.

    Me too, hopefully it will come with 8.1.
    Other things I am looking for most are notification centre (obviously), quick settings, separate ringtone and media volume, week view in calendar and ring and vibrate rather than vibrate then ring.

    Installed it on my HTC 8S & made it useless device.
    It keeps on rebooting on its own.

    Please help any other user is also facing this issue in GDR 3

    Like to know that as well.

    Also, contrary to what Micah commented, I AM VERY HAPPY with WP8 and what MS has been doing to improve it. I just wanted them to know I really missed the ability to add new contacts from search or phone with a touch and hold drop-down menu, and a fast way to close apps.

    Hey, this is a new platform. I'm pretty darn impressed so far. I was a long time huge BBerry Fan. Ripping someone like me from those long roots is hard, but WP8 did it! :)

    And Micah is also correct, these are minor updates. 8.1 will be the biggy. It's fun to be experiencing the growth and improvements! However, I'd not jump on this Preview, personally. I will just enjoy reading what you guys are experiencing, until it's ready to be pushed to my phone. Call me cautious!

    I have this on my lumia 1020 and swear the pro cam app opens faster. I know nokia didn't do anything but Microsoft probably made some low level os changes to make it open faster.
