    I am noticing some lag with my screen. Doesn't happen a lot, but a few times my screen will either freeze or jump around like I'm tapping it (when I'm not).
    It started to happen with mine L920 since begin of this week and I still with GDR1 software version. Maybe exists another explanation for it.

    Booooo!!! After changing the default camera app to Pro Cam, you can no longer unlock straight to the camera w/out a password.
    Edited: I thought there was a solution to this, but I was wrong. It seems you can only use the default Camera app to awaken the phone via the camera shutter button. Oh well.

    You still can! Here is what I wrote about this in a different thread:
    When I first changed the default camera button from the default camera to Nokia Pro Cam, I noticed that pressing the camera button from sleep mode to awake always made me input my 4-digit password, whereas previously the default camera app did not make me do this. I went back into the Settings > Applications > photos+camera and checked "Prevent accidental camera launch when phone is locked" and now it works where I can bypass the password and go straight from sleep to the Pro Cam app (I know, the wording of that and what it did sounds counterintuitive, doesn't it?).
    Checked or unchecked, it's not doing it for me on a 928. :(

    Same for me. Checked or unchecked it still prompts me for my PIN.

    Hmm, I guess you're right. I had my password set to "1 minute" instead of every time, so I'm guessing that is why I thought it didn't work. Oh well. Unfortunately, you cannot even use the built-in Camera app as the default and then just quickly hit the lens button to switch to Pro Cam as other lenses are blocked. I guess if you need to take a quick picture, the built-in Camera will have to do.

    Way to get me excited only to have my dreams come crashing down on the rocks below. :) The pro shot app is good enough that I don't mind entering my 4 digit pin.

    I may just disable my PIN for now... I don't often leave my phone laying around and this is kind of annoying me.

    Don't know if it's because of the update but today my screen locked up and was unresponsive. It was fine again after a reboot. On the plus side, .wav file voicemails that are emailed to me are now playable.

    I'm a bit confused as to the importance of the .wav file playback. Not sure what I am missing out on. Can you elaborate a bit?

    Thanks. Hoping Verizon releases to the air soon.
    Soooo, no answer? Can someone tell me why this may be important? Not sure why it is something I might want to use...

    idk but i literally just did this. i have no lock pin/pw set and pro cam is my default camera. i held the shutter button down while my phone was locked and the phone awoke to pro cam. is this not what is happening for others? seems to work fine for me.

    i'm too not sure of why this is significant unless that's a common file type voice mails are saved as and so if you were to receive one with that file type from someone who wants you to hear a particular voice mail now you can listen to it?

    I can handle this. Tons of companies have voicemail systems such as Cisco, Avaya, Nortel, that send you your voicemails as an attachment in an email. These wav files are encoded using a certain codec and that codec was not playable on Windows Phone 8. This is a real big deal for the mobile worker as iOS, BBOS, BB10 and Android (via 3rd party app) had no issues playing them.

    Microsoft has finally corrected this bug and added that support back.

    It should be able to do this with a PIN enabled, as the basic camera app does, but it's not.

    If you HAVE a PIN/PW set and hit the camera button you can take pictures without unlocking the device using the stock camera app. Very handy when you want to take a quick pic.. Using the Pro Cam app as the default, it will prompt you to enter your PIN before being able to take a picture.

    Lot of office IP Phones systems has the ability to send the voicemail in an e-mail. Quite pleasant, except earlier WP versions did not play the format of that wav.

    It does now and it is a big relief that I do not have to find a computer to play back those files.

    Just a small everyday annoyance out the way :)

    Me too, SAME!!!

    I swear the phone's touch screen feels less responsive now... Suddenly I'm finding myself going back and retyping word because it didn't recognize my key press. I'm probably overreacting but it just feels different

    gotcha, thanks for clarifying. good thing i find punching in a pin every time i unlock my phone to be a hassle and so i never set that to be on lol. wonder when MS will implement the picture password to WP like on W8.

    FM radio is built in MSM8960 chip, an integrated part, and you cannot strip it off the CPU. So no matter whoever said Lumia 928 does not have FM radio, they are all simply wrong.
    this isn't a Verizon issue. Check the specs on Nokia's website. 928 does not have an FM chip. Can't enable a function that isn't supports by hardware.

    wp_20130817_00_01_54_smart.jpgvia smart cam
    wp_20130817_001.jpg via native camera app

    l920 updated to amber via OTA today, installed nokia pro cam and nokia smart cam via the store link

    noticed that the smart cam takes blurrier pics than the native camera app ( hav attached the pics )

    tried del n reinstalling the smart cam but ended up with the same results
    anyone else notice this ???

    pro cam is a bit better than the smart cam app but m guessing thats due to my photographic skill n knowledge, but smart cam shuld atleast take better pics than the native app !

    make sure in settings-->messaging that group chat is switched on , and that your cellular data is on.

    Make sure it says "MMS" below your text before you send it. I had a problem with that at first when I restored my L928 from a L620 backup (with the MMS settings turned on). Think I restarted or soft reset the phone when it didn't work, and when I tried again, it worked properly. If you can't get it working, call Verizon as they can usually play with things on their end to reset the MMS settings
