    Question regarding custom ringtones/notifications:

    Can a custom email tone be assigned to a specific contact? For example, default email ringtone is email.wav... but email ringtone for Joe Smith is sirens.wav? This is a HUGE deal breaker for me, and really the only thing keeping me from switching.
    I see custom Ringtone and Text Tone , but not anything like Email Tone after update.

    I can assign a SMS ringtone and a Call ringtone to a specific contact but I cannot assign email ringtones to contacts ...

    I'm sorry bud

    I just joined the fold and my Lumia 920 is now restarting after 100% completion of download. Figures crossed!

    It appears as though you can do this in your contacts. Not sure if this is new as it serves no purpose to me but if you go into a contact you can set a specific rington and text tone.

    BTW, this thread would be much more helpful if it wasn't filled with pages of "I am at 96%....", "Installing", etc. etc. etc.
    The reason it is important to me (and likely other enterprise users) is this:

    I get emails all day, every day. Most are informational and don't require any action from me. However, emails from specific contacts/email addresses DO require action from me and I need to be aware. What I do with my current phone is have the default email tone as silence.wav, but have the email tone for those important contacts set to something loud that will get my attention or wake me up.

    I signed up for app studio, downloaded the developer app, checked for updates and am now installing.

    No certificate needed for me as well. :)


    Weird, I didn't have to install a certificate at all.

    Signed up as a company developer, also setup App Studio this morning earlier.

    Just went to windowsphone marketplace, installed the app, signed off on the ToS... Went to phone update.

    Right now Preparing to install: 62% :)

    Lumia 1020 for the win!

    EDIT: I did install the SDK for WP8 this am and unlocked my phone, maybe that's why I didn't have to install the certificate...

    Am I the only one that wants a swipe-up (or down) to close an app instead of clicking a close button?
    Yep.

    What about different vibration patterns? Any chance that they added that?

    Is it coincidence that Nokia made available yesterday the Nokia Software Updater for retail app.. This is used to recover bricked phones.

    Just installed the update. The new things for L920 are: screen rotation block; driving mode; app management and ringtones. No notifications on glance screen or additional tiles.

    This release is ALL the developers, not only those who posses Nokia phones.

    I know this but just saying it is timely that a brick fixer from Nokia comes out the day before all this is announced and made available. I wonder if this app would revert a bricked phone back to GDR2.

    One really subtle change I noticed is that there is now an option in keyboards to switch back to a text keyboard after choosing an emoticon.

    Anyone know if you can enable 3 rows of tiles with GDR3. I have looked around and haven't found if you can. I remember them throwing around the idea that those with 720p screens might be able to enable the 3 rows.

    Awesome so far.
    - Multitasking close apps X works well with some nice animations

    - Custom tones for alarm, email, texts, etc. works well. Finally can download those funny tones without feeling sad that we can't use them

    - Screen rotation lock works well, best when you're still in bed trying to view stuff on your phone

    - All amber features are present

    - So far no additional features that MS didn't mention is present. NO 3-TILES IN A ROLL THINGY, if you're still wondering

    - Overall I feel the scrolling is smoother and nothing is broken or buggy, so in conclusion it's a great update. I hope they bring Win8 features such as multi-select and arrange tiles and gestures to WP soon.
