    Thank you very much for the warm welcome and support :). Yes I am liking Lumia so far as its fast and quick :) There are some stages at which I feel difficulty but I am sure after getting help from here that would lighten my burden :)

    Firstly, In my office, we wirelessly connect to the internet by assigning fixed ip addresses to computers/mobiles.

    The problem that I am facing is when I enter the password to connect to the network connection on my phone, the Connection is Unsuccessful and I am being prevented from the stage where after connecting to that specific connection, I may enter the ip address manually. Please help

    Oh :o Thats strange :s This is a very common option and I wonder why Windows didn't think of putting it :/

    Anyhow, about my another problem; is there anyway to password protect my installed applications like whatsapp etc? I mean is there any app available using which I may be able to password protect my installed apps such as whatsapp?

    Not possible. This can only be done by the developer himself.

    Thank you so much :) For now, I am looking for different sort of apps related to Engineering, Mathematics, such ones which may tell me the consumption of my ram at that instant and other phone's customizations etc

    Lumia 920 Rogers ROM has option to manually set IP for WIFI. I flashed my ATT Lumia 920 with a Rogers ROM and got that feature. Other WP8 on Rogers might have that feature.

    Thats interesting to know, but sadly I don't have any idea as in how to flash my Nokia Lumia 820 to Rogers or any other ROM(incase if there is ) :/

    Another Question:
    Is there any way to only limit the person's name to appear as notification upon receiving text rather than the message too? I was able to achieve this thing for whatsapp but am not able to find any solution for the text messages.

    Welcome to windows phone platform but looking at your questions, I think you may have made a mistake. Android would have suited your purpose since you can not really customize this. Where as android its endless, loads of options at your fingertips, instant notification bar on top with toggles, data capture software readily availble and there are many things to do with it. Wp is kind of closed system. The apps are limited, games are few but its growing on a weekly basis :) .

    Edit: no you can not hide message content in toasts. No option to turn off too :( .

    I was an iphone user and an android user(once) too. But this time I thought of trying Windows Phone. I am sure there might be ways but ofcourse am not able to discover on my own. Thanks to this forum and you all users who altogether are helping me out and making me understand this phone well :)

    I think I understand what you want, but think it is strange. You should just use a PIN to lock the phone. That will prevent anyone to peek at your things, impersonate you or delete importants informations or apps. Why would you want to protect app by app? A phone is a personal thing, not normally shared like a desktop or even a tablet computer.
    If you want to give someone your phone to, say, play a game, just use the "kids corner" feature. It is sort of a guest account. Put the apps or games you want to share in there and you are done.

    You don't need to worry about your RAM Consumption. WP is highly optimised so that each app is tombstoned in background in order to maintain the flow. I am a commerce graduate so i don't know about the engineering apps. Maybe someone else can tell you.

    I have installed a software named "Battery". Often it happens that I receive a notification from that app saying my discharge speed is 26 percent/hour and soon my cellphone will get completely discharged(within 3-4 hours). The only solution that I have found for that is restarting my phone after which my discharge speed reduces back to 3 percent/hour, 2 percent/hour. This increased my curiosity to get such an app with the help of which I may know the ram/memory consumption by each app.

    I will suggest you to uninstall that battery app and limit your background tasks to minimum you need. Restrict the background access for Here Drive+.
