    What are they doing with an emerging market and always a great market for Nokia phones Pakistan... Here we don't have anything which can be counted to make someone consider Windows phone worth buying we don't have Urdu language, don't have Bing maps, don't have here maps, don't have Nokia mix radio, don't have any of Microsoft store or we can't even order any accessories/phones online... Why are we still expecting something from MS... We don't know about the future of Cortana coming to us or not I'm just using a phone for little games where i can't pay for buying/in aap purchases...i can't do lots of things with my such lovely phones

    Agreed somehow. But also consider some strong points:
    1) Nokia 630 was available here in Pakistan when it was still not launched in most of the countries.
    2) Cheap rates , I bought Nokia 630 in Rs. 15700
    3) Regional Support: Select Pakistan region in settings with Urdu or even Punjabi and Sindhi and enjoy dates in native languages which looks very pleasant in lock screen . This function I don't notice on Android phones.
    4) Nokia mix radio 📻 available, just change region.

    Then why don't you sell it and buy a new phone? A device should do what YOU need it to do. Though I do believe that living in Pakistan, you should perhaps be concerned with other issues.

    I got my Lumia 630 updated yesterday. This is 4th time including (3 times) Developer Preview updates in 2 month. This is also one of the strong point for Nokia / MS as Android is rarely launch updates for Pakistan.

    Reply from Nokia when I asked them to bring their services to Pakistan.


    Hi Aqib Raza Khan,
    We are constantly seeking ways to improve our Nokia MixRadio and Here Maps/Drive services, though we are not able to make any specific comment about future plans.

    1) okay. What about lumia 930 and all other phones?
    2) Cheap rates? LOL, I bought Lumia 520 6 months ago for almost $170 in Pakistan while in india it was around $120 and $50-$100 everywhere.
    3) okay.
    4) LOL. Available? Just change region?

    Really you dont have HERE maps?? I thought it was worldwide.
    But if you dont have Nokia services and HERE maps now, you probably never will. Nokia stopped supporting WP immediately it got rid of its mobile production. Even Nokia Glance Beta will stay Beta forever. MS dont have nothing to do with HERE, its Nokias property. And they are developing it with car industry and other platforms now.

    And what you meant by not having any of Microsoft store??

    For me the worst part is not having HERE maps. There's just one giant road passing through Pakistan... They could have mapped the major cities, but no, there's nothing. The next problem for me was region-exclusive services and apps. I just changed my phone region to the US long ago because of region-exclusivity.

    You should contact developers of your favourite apps and offer to do Urdu translation for free!
