    Fair enough.. You could be luckier than most. However I wasn't noticing much of a problem the first day or 2. Give it a week or 2 and that will be enough time to fully determine if you're experiencing issues.
    Ah ok cool, i'll definitely keep an eye and update if i notice a change. Hopefully by then Nokia has released 1314 for Rogers users.

    I wonder if the batch number has anything to do with it. Mine is a batch 46\12. You can find out the batch number on the box on the sticker where the imei number is printed.

    I was having issues earlier this week.. And perhaps it had been going on since I updated but it seemed to get especially acute this week. Two days ago I was poking around my settings and noticed that my apn was set to windmobile.com. Now I had indeed put in my wind sim to see if I could access the internet with it and I could (yes my 920 is of course unlocked) so whatever this was appeared to be a Rogers issue. Rogers sim did not work, no internet access and signal kept dropping to 3g and disappearing. I poked around and found this apn artefact and reset it to ltemobile.apn AND NOW IT WORKS PERFECTLY. Please check your apn. ltemobile.apn with no username or pw.

    Jfmanzo.....this may seem like a stupid question but I'll ask anyway...is that apn setting for internet apn or mms apn? And are you saying that that apn setting made it work perfectly when you had your Rogers sim in.....right?

    internet, and no that's not a stupid question at since I should have specified. I now realize that my mms apn settings disappeared completely.

    And yes, Rogers sim was installed.

    Ok one more question.....has changing the apn settings impacted any other setting or function negatively (that you've noticed)?
    Admittedly I'm not very tech savvy haha and hesitant to do anything that might reduce my phone functions further.

    Any more non Rogers users want to comment on the connection issue? I still have yet to update, still unsure. Reading conflicting on either side.

    I do not believe that there would be any negative impact on the other functions on the phone.


    Anyone else with the signal drops tried updating their APN settings?

    So I ended up changing the apn settings and it seemed to improve data speeds. I tested making a phone call though and after the call I lost data connection again. Even got "no network found" in cell settings. So ya, that didn't really help but thanks anyway. Just gonna have to wait for a fix from Nokia/Rogers.

    still no issues with calls, sms or data connections...all working as expected. the only syncing i have setup is facebook which works fine, get the notification on the facebook tile and "me" tile. My only complaint so far is battery, medium use (some surfing, downloaded a few apps, about 10 texts and 2 calls) and its at 59%, last charged at 1am, woke up this morning at 93%. its nor horrible but not as good as i expected, my S3 was slightly better...however that took me a few weeks to tweak.

    My internet and mms apn were blank since the beginning in November 2012.

    After update, my internet sharing works now. I subscribe to the 5gb plan with sharing. Prior to this, it won't work even though I paid for the plan.

    Unlocked Rogers 920 on ATT.

    On a more positive note, ever since the 1308 update, my lumia camera has finally started taking the awesome pics that were promised to me :)

    I'm still not happy with the focusing, too many times it still has trouble getting a focus, in auto mode even!

    On the phone with Rogers again as my connection has been absolute garbage, no LTE, no connection, very often at max 3G and i'm running below 5 on the down and below 0.5 on the up. They are absolutely clueless as to what's happening, they actually offered me to go to a 3rd party to pay money and fix my phone at which point I've notified them that they are likely in breach of contract as they have sold me the device, pushed the update to my phone and are now charging me for an LTE data plan that is far from LTE in reality.

    This is getting really frustrating to be honest. The only positive for me from the firmware was the screen brightness adjustment. I'll take the vibration rattle back gladly, the vibrate now is so weak, its almost non existant and storage was never an issue even though Other was getting pretty big.

    Question... Does this update apply to people who have unlocked Rogers Lumia 920s that they plan on using on T-Mobile? I'm considering buying one from Negri and want to know if I would get the 1308 update... Thanks in advance.

    Just an update. I haven't experienced any connections issues while out and about. Spent yesterday around Brampton and today in Newmarket, connection flawless. Although I can't say I'm impressed with the battery...low to medium use is producing less than average life...especially in comparison to ip5 and s3.

    I'm wondering if the newer hardware models aren't experiencing the same issues as the launch devices in terms of connection?hmmm.

    I got mine this weekend and using it on T-Mobile, working great so far. Just a quick note, don't install the Access Point app, it will block your internet sharing.

    Thanks! I don't use Internet sharing anyway, though, so I definitely wouldn't get the Access Point app. Good to know the update is viable for the Rogers 920s running on T-Mo.

    Not sure if anyone else has noticing this.. Since I've been running 1308 my connectivity issues have actually becoming increasingly worse. At first I would lose signal entirely only a few times a day. Now I can actually watch my display the no signal icon every few min and it lasts about 30-60 sec every time. This weekend I missed over 15 calls that went straight to voicemail. I had 3 vmails come in for calls I didn't know I missed as well. Saturday I received 7 texts from someone all at once that were actually sent over a period of a few hours. My friends and family have become very annoyed with me and I've actually gotten to a point where I have to notify everyone that they may need to keep calling me over a 5 min period.

    To recap I have the yellow L920 on Rogers in dt Toronto.

    Have you installed the access point app to set your APN settings to Rogers?

    Yup it was previously installed. I noticed immediately after the update I had to manually select Rogers LTE as the connection. And that's what's been selected ever since. I even decided to go into the cellular settings and manually select Rogers as the network selection. Also no improvements there.

    It's quite possible I am one of the severe cases here but I'm very close to the point of considering sending my phone in for service to Nokia. Although I don't know exactly how they can help unless they re-flash my phone to a pre-1308 firmware. But then I lose all my game saves and a few other odds and ends which at the same time makes me hesitant.

    I really just want this fix to come sooner than most because my phone is rendered useless for almost 50% of the time it's on. And with no ETA in sight I really don't know what I'm supposed to do.

    Well, I decided to jump on the update (non Rogers L920)
    Now, in an area with 4 LTE bars, I am full 4G instead and the speedtest demonstrates the drop. :(
    Anyone else face this and resolved it?

    Oh FFS
    I went into Access Point and they are ALL "Inactive"
    Even after I activate my carrier, it does not 'stick' - when I come back they are all 'inactive' again.

    EDIT add: Manual update of Access Point...lets see if this fixes it
    EDIT2: Nope, still doesn't stick. This pisses me off.

    Anyone else face the same issue?

    Ludon, hang in there. I'm working with some special tech support guy with Rogers (essentially a result of me ripping a tech customer service guy to shreds ending with a call back from the specialist about 8 hours later) to figure this out. He said there might be an issue with the profile on the network as a result of the firmware update, because he tested my SIM profile on other phones and none got LTE and all had connection problems. He's looking into it and I should receive an update today or tomorrow. Essentially, he said this is very unusual and he's researching the 1308 firmware and the 1314 firmware as well to figure out what happened and how it can be fixed. I told him, why don't you guys push 1314 and find out haha!
