    Hey everyone. Coming from BlackBerry and Android. Just purchased my first Windows phone, the Nokia Lumia 920. Since I am going back to school for my Master's degree I needed to get a new laptop with Windows 8 so I thought I might get a phone to match. It should arrive in about a week.

    I will be checking out the forums for information but if you have any tips or input to add, please do!

    Congrats, still a great phone ...

    If it's new :
    • Before adding any apps, go to SETTINGS >> PHONE UPDATE & check for any updates available

    IF it's used (refurbed, etc.)
    • go to SETTINGS >> ABOUT & reset your phone
    • AFTER RESET & Before adding any apps, go to SETTINGS >> PHONE UPDATE & check for any updates available


    After you setup your WiFi connection ... then explore the Windows Phone Marketplace (STORE on the phone) for apps of interest. Install apps, judiciously, checking for any issues with the selected app. The good people on this forum are helpful (for the most part) & will answer (well formed) questions, with enuff info provided by you, to give good advice.

    GOOD LUCK

    Awesome. Getting it from a company on Ebay. It's supposed to be new and they have excellent reviews so I hope it's true. I didn't want to go all out yet so I thought this might be good enough to play around with. I appreciate your input.

    If you will be on AT&T and your data plan allows it, using internet sharing should not be a problem. If the phone is unlocked and you use another carrier chances are slim this will work.

    TGeek,
    Welcome to the family! I hope you enjoy your new Lumia 920 and Windows Phone. I can't vouch much for the 920 or AT&T, but I imagine you'll be just fine. You'll find it easy and intuitive to use your phone and within a week should be an expert. I know I loved my 928 and am loving the ICON.

    Hi and welcome to WPCentral.

    The Windows Phone 8.1 Cyan update is available for AT&T. It should be available when you set up your new 920.

    I have a 920 on AT&T, and I'm running 8.1 Cyan plus the Preview For Developers update. I'm happy with my 920, especially with the Cyan update.

    I have the 920 as well, through at&t. Highly recomend the slim case Nokia makes for the 920. I'll try and find the model number as that was the only way I could find it in stores. Cost me $8 on eBay, fits like a glove, covers everything but the glass and can't even tell it has the case on. Definetly get a qi charger to it worth it. My wife bought the jbl Bluetooth wireless speaker with the qi charger built into the top and she loves it. Enjoy your phone, it has a lot of life left.

    Oh, I would recomend avoiding third party qi chargers. The built in one with the jbl speaker has been fine but I've heard of overheating issues with many others. Many people don't realize qi communicates with the phone to regulate charging level depending on battery temp and other things and I think many of the third parties don't put the ability to communicate with the phone and regulate the charge level which can cause issues.

    Hello and welcome to the WPC forum. Great to see you trying it out. Also have a 920 and it has held up well over time even surviving numerous hard drops. Hope it serves you well too.
