    I just got my Lumia today and I just noticed that my calendar in month view shows some type of writing in another language. I'm not sure what it says...is that normal?

    Yes it's norm. Windows phone in calendar view does not show the actual event on the calendar.... It just does that as a filler to show you that you have something scheduled on that day

    Yeah, I had no idea what was going when I first saw that after trying to customize the calendar. I just ended up using a Google calendar app since I like being able to see what I have going on at a quick glance :)

    Mine looks like it's in German or something and it's annoying.

    LOL, too funny because today I had lunch with my younger brother, who's Lumia 900 is the reason I switched from iPhone to the 920. Anyway, I pointed this out to him and he wouldn't believe me, stating that "No, it tells you what the appointment is." When I showed him on my 920, he was able to actually make it out. "Wow, your screen is so sharp and clear, I see what you're talking about!"

    Looks Latin to me. I'll have to look into this Google calendar app!

    Seriously? I have a 900 and I just assumed the resolution was too low to read it. Well that's kind of disappointing, but o well.

    If you want appointment info a glance, let the calendar app be the one to put detailed status on the lock screen and it is very convenient... That's what I'm doing and it works well for me.

    Well... Nice find. I did not notice it until you posted the screen shot. I just assumed that those words are my calendar appointments.

    When I actually select the dates that have these wordings, the day view shows my actual appoints for that day. The days I don't have any appointments, that language doesn't show up.

    Funny, I never noticed that either. I also couldn't read it on my old WP7 phone because the screen wasn't sharp enough.

    Anyway, here is what is actually written, it's called Lorem Ipsum (basically it really is gibberish)

    The app "Simple Calendar" puts the appointments in English. Not sure why Microsoft doesn't.
