    I saw it mentioned on the forum somewhere. Is there any way to see this? Does this show how long your device has been used? Thanks!

    You can use third party battery apps which will measure your phone activity such as screen time , how long you have used your phone , wifi etc.

    Thank you so much! Do you know if Nokia has an official clock somewhere in their settings though? If not, that's okay thanks I'll try third party apps!

    Do any of you know any battery app which shows the screen-on time? Is there a WP limitation preventing such a feature?

    Screen-on time offers no value- compare playing an hour of Temple Run or angry birds, to an hour of text messaging or typing emails. Battery consumption depends on what the activity is on the phone. That's probably why there is no need for a "screen-on" time indicator.

    In WP 8.1 the Battery Saver app shows the battery consumption of each app. This gives a better idea of battery hogging apps.

    Although battery consumption depends on the activity, it would help to know how much I have 'actually' used the phone and for how long it has been in standby.
    Also the Battery Saver app doesn't do such a great job. I have found it to be inaccurate at times and it also doesn't tell you the consumption of things like geo-fencing (GPS) which drains battery really fast. But still its better than WP8.0. Including an exact percentage of battery consumed and more detail would help (similar to what's there in Android, yes more Android features)

    What do those numbers mean though? Like 25 days, 52 minutes and 49 seconds or like what?

    Wow, the lifetime counter on my Lumia 810 reads: 899:21:08. Those numbers are much, MUCH smaller on my 920 and 925!

    interesting , let me guess here, you have windows phone 8.1 installed on your 810 ? and you tend to use 810 more than your Lumia 920/925

    Yes, I installed 8.1 on the 810 last month. I regularly used that phone for a good five months, though. My 920 was used a lot more (10 months), although I'd have to get back to you on the info on its lifetime counter. Somehow, I'm pretty sure it's less than that of the 810. LOL

    Yup, huuuuge difference. Lifetime counter on my 920 is: 33:12:02 and on my 925 it's only 05:06:24.

    That's what I thought. It seems odd, though, that the phone I used for 5 months and not the one I used for 10 would have a higher number.

    Will resetting the phone back to factory settings reset the internal call clock to 0?

    I don't believe so. I'm pretty sure I've read accounts of people who bought used Windows Phones who've said the counter still reads previous usage.

    If you are really trying to figure it out, does anyone know if T-Mobile WiFi calling shows in the ##634# display? If that's from Nokia I would NOT expect WiFi calling minutes to show up there unless T-Mobile asked for that or modified it themselves, in which case they might not have done that consistently.
