    It is nice to see t-MO users (8X and 810) be able to enjoy full usage of their phones despite t-mo's best attempts.

    I like WP 8.1. Just feel like the 521 is way too slow. It gets super hot too sometimes.

    It's a low end phone so no surprise there. Also WP8.1 is only a preview so there are issues with it.

    If you plan to return your L521 I recommend using this: http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...very-tool.html

    Well you negotiate it however you want, just saying it may be a chance for you to get that 1520.

    I'll get into the beta fun tonight between assignments. I dont have much on the 925 so a full wipe is ok by me. Not doing that to my 8X though as I have some stuff on it I'd rather not lose.

    I am still lying in bed. However I put The Hobbits onto my iPad and I am watching now. It looks beautiful on the high resolution screen.

    I liked the first one in the cinema but not the second one. Maybe I'll like it more this time if I don't fall asleep.

    I found the first one dragged a lot. I didn't see the second one because of that.

    Then again, it is a reflection of the book. It's is slow moving. The other three were better because they shortened the books to a reasonable level. This three part movie nonsense for The Hobbit is a pure money grab.

    I don't think you will need a full wipe. My 810 transferred over everything without a single glitch. Just fiddling with the settings to get optimal performance took a bit of time. Since I learnt from the experience on the 810, the 8X was updated quickly and then optimized under 10 minutes.

    It is a money grab, Peter Jackson should have quit while he was ahead. I decided not to watch either of the two Hobbit movies:-)

    I just liked the atmosphere of the first one. The second one felt like a mix between a jump and run computer game, a love story written by a teenager and too many lame monologues of the dragon which I found much less impressive than everybody else...

    So...funny-ish story. I have a coworker, who like Chregu is a HTC person for her phones. She's on VZW and her last 3 have been the Rezound, 8x and now the One (2013/M7) - with an eye to upgrade to the M8 in a few months when it gets cheaper. So she knows I use WP and always comes to be about questions. I did put Nokia Maps and Drive (I still think "Here!" sounds crooked) and those are the two she apps she uses the most.

    So when she shows me her M7 she asks: "can you put that maps back on it again?" I tell her "that's a Nokia and Wp8 exclusive." She goes "OH GOD! What can I use now? That map and drive is So good!" So I told her to use it as a stand alone GPS (I think I put on either the NY+NJ+CT maps only or all the US maps) because she still carries her 8x around.

    See, HTC needs a good high end WP8 model for people like my coworker. As much as she would complain about certain things for WP, she could be one of those who would stay. Hopefully MSFT picks up more of these folks who aren't interested in Nokia but like the platform enough.

    I'll probably still do one because T-MO had tried to push through the settings for me to get the tethering to work on my 925 (amazingly enough, they still has BB BIS attached to me account when I haven't used a BB in 4 years). I know it may not help but I don't mind in this case.

    We need a solid mid-range device, something of a blend between the 810 and 8X in terms of functionality and design but with high resolution 4.7" screen, microSD card support, 8MP camera with dual flash, LTE and a 2200 mAh battery. Everything the 635 should have been but is not going to be. Damn the Moto G sounds so good!!

    I'd love an 9X or a HTC One Windows Phone edition. But not if they do it like Samsung, just releasing old hardware with Windows Phone. (For some unknown reasons they sell tons of Androids so they shouldn't care...)

    I don't know if HTC can afford developing a great WP at the moment, most of all with the risks involved and the dominance of Nokia.

    My head hurts.

    Bummer about the head. :/

    I saw the new HTC 8M(?) the other day. Very nice looking. WP on that would be awesome. I would even consider getting one!

    Hey Chregu,

    Did you try installing the US keyboard as well? I think it may be a solution...

    I think that happens automatically, I just removed it as one English keyboard is enough.

    I held it. It was very sleek. Yes it's big and I'm not very fond of big phones but even my wife liked it and she doesn't like the size of my L920!

    I was just reading that the people with Lumias who have a similar issue as you installed the US keyboard first, then the language then the region. It seems to work.

    Just a thought. :)

    I'll try, I have nothing better to do. But I really think the problem lies deeper. Let's find out.

    Me too, I thought it was too big. But I was using the S4 Mini at the time. Could have been that ;-)
