    Guys i have taken a huge step of hard format my phone. I have lost all data. Obv i have taken a backup. Now i,have set my,phone back and my Microsoft account got my contacts messages and all,apps r installed again. Now iam only pinning apps that i really use. Deleted few apps tat i don't need. Earlier my battery drain was 6 percent , now its 1.5 to 2.5 percent. Have been using phone to set my tiles my fb and other social account. Will get back with my battery status soon.

    I just got my Nokia Lumia 1020 yesterday, and I had an update out of the box that I downloaded and installed. I do not think it was the "Black" update because I still have 2 camera apps (Pro cam, and smart cam). I checked for new updates today, and it said there aren't any pending... How do I get the "Black" update on my phone?

    SnapDude, I just went through the same thing. Here's what to do:

    First, get the latest extra+info app - extras+info | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Then, go to Settings > extras+info to see if you have the Black update (if it says "Black" you've got it, otherwise, you don't).

    Finally, to get the right camera, search the store for Nokia Camera and install it. That'll replace your Pro Cam. After that you can uninstall your Smart Cam because those features are included with Nokia Camera.
