    Anyone else having problems with setting up email Twitter and Facebook accounts? They won't sync in the settings
    Both worked fine for me.

    My screen has an issues. The upper left hand corner has a different color temperature compared to the rest of the screen. The gradient effect on the screen is most visible when looking at a dark grey or white background. Since this is definitely hardware I will more than likely be getting the device swapped.

    I've been having Bluetooth radio problems. The audio and speech quality is choppy and broken. I have had a poor experience when streaming to my Yamaha receiver, using my hands free built into my Toyota and on my Bluebuds-X earphones. I had no issues before that when using the same devices with my L928. I hope its only a firmware fix that's needed. Anyone else having similar issues?
    I would imagine so, but you have done a soft reset, yes?

    Had my Icon since 10:30 this morning. Attempted to connect to my 5GHz Wi-Fi at home with no luck ("Invalid Password"). Connected to 2.4GHz band just fine with the very same passkey.

    Went to work. We have 802.11x authentication. Can't connect at all: "Connection unseccessful. Your phone couldn't reach the network." A hard reset and two soft resets later, still no dice on anything but that one home Wi-Fi SSID.

    Frustrating.

    UPDATE: Received my new replacement this morning. Same issue with same networks. I know Verizon will be useless, as they'll just blame the networks, not the phone. As it stands, I can only successfully connect to my own 2.4GHz band at home. No other networks (public or private) will connect at all.

    Reached out to Nokia USA via Twitter and they said they'd share my issue with the team...

    Looking forward to a completely usable phone. The device is overall quite nice.

    When I swipe to my app list, the text of the apps gets all jagged while the start screen and apps are both displayed on the screen. Once the app list is the only thing on the screen, the text looks fine. I took screenshots during the transition but the text is perfect so I suspect this is a physical refresh issue.

    Just to let you know that I have had no issues connecting to either my 5 GHz or 2.4 GHz WiFi connections. It's more likely a hardware issue.

    That's what I'm afraid of. I really don't want to have to deal with a replacement phone less than 24 hours after receiving the device. Sigh. I suppose I'll have to visit a Verizon store and fiddle with it. They'd better not attempt to ship me a CFA/Refurb.

    Just got my icon and I'm noticing a few things. 1. The face buttons are a yellowish off-white. 2. For some reason I don't see the alphabetical jump list when swiping to my apps list. 3.) The whites on the screen especially in the keyboard may have an ever so slight yellowish tint.

    i haven't even seen the icon but i can address one issue. You don't see the alphabetical jump list UNLESS you have 25 or so apps atleast (not sure about the number). You don't seem to have had a new windows phone before this, otherwise you'd have known. Instal some pretty apps and see the jump list come after there are enough apps to make the jump list it seems that the people at Microsoft were intelligent. look sensible and not just a space consuming thing.

    Thank you for that. I was worried it was a feature that was removed with WP8.

    Has anybody noticed the call quality being very bad? I can hear the plastic housing vibrating when I have the volume over 6.

    Not sure how high my volume is set, but mine seems to be way better call quality than my G2 was.

    Anyone else seeing any slight color shifting in a certain portion of the screen?

    I think this is a bug. Can't change the volume while listening to podcasts. It just stays at whatever volume was used last. Doesn't matter which podcast.

    If play some mp3s, the volume can change, but when I go back to play a podcast, the volume does not change (but the volume number does show as increasing/decreasing).

    Yes, a soft reset did the trick! I did it early this morning and just had a chance to post my results.

    Yes, quite noticeable on my phone. The whole top half is a darker, redish tint. On a white screen you can easily see the top left corner and the bottom left corner are two completely different shades of white. Even more noticeable on lower brightness levels.

    I'll likely be replacing mine. At first I thought I could get past it but I live in the email app and it's driving me insane.

    Yeah, I've been holding out on a WP 7.8 HTC Trophy for the last 3 years. I'll probably be replacing mine because of the yellow hardware buttons (its really obvious next to white on screen buttons).

    I think that is actually normal. Mine are yellowish as well and one of them has a dark spot on it, very inconsistent. But I have noticed this on other Nokia phones. I assume it's "normal."

    Crap... That concerns me... I'm going to be attempting to exchange mine tomorrow morning (After finally getting the full thing setup) There was no complaints about this with any of the review units so its possible it is limited to a small batch.

    It seems as if a lot of people are having color problems on their screens. You guys could try to calibrate the screen through Settings>Display>Lumia Color Profile. I noticed the pop up menus for buttons and music were slightly purple. I went in to here and adjusted it and now it looks fine. Not sure if this would help out the users who have different hues in different areas though. I haven't experienced any color issue on my Icon as of yet.

    I used Battery+ on my 928 and it it crashes upon launch on my Icon. That is the only problem I have had so far.

    Dang, the problems are really popping up now. I think I may wait for them to get any issues sorted out (and hopefully get a better deal).

    No, they aren't...

    A problem with a device here or there is expected. It seems to be a pretty healthy device so far.

    Agreed... Even with my small problems, I am still enjoying this device a lot.

    My icon has not found or installed the Touch update to disable the haptic feedback yet. Also, my keyboard keys are a pale black/grey color compared to the black background. Can't recall if it was that way on my 928. Minor things though so far it's been a wonderful phone. Do miss the Xenon flash though.
