    Add your Microsoft Account email address to the Gmail app, and you'll get your contacts/calendar sync.
    Unfortunately that didn't work either... I did try it. I had to switch off the 2 step verification then i could easily add my msft account... And i switched it back again.

    2-step verification is fine. You'll just need this app.

    Man you just can't catch a break at the moment, can you? Does your 920 connect to the WiFi at home or is W10 a complete no go?
    It connects at home but I might have my Z3 back today. In which case I won't need the L920...

    If not I may consider giving it a try. We'll see.

    Morning folks. Headed to the P.O. today to collect my final piece of kit. I won't post pictures until tomorrow.

    Don't you just love doing home improvement projects with your significant other? The GF asked me to repair her bed frame and move around 2 of the 3 ACs and put up the 3rd one. We started so late that we did all but the put up the last AC. I think we bit each other's heads off a few times, but somehow survived...

    She needs a new bed frame, as the headboard and footboard look great (old school wood) the crossbeams that support the weight of the bed were made using cheap *** wood. I told her to get a metal frame similar to mine...and still keep the wooden elements. It won't look as good, but it'll be more sturdy to sleep on...

    Rue, I don't envy your phone issues at all. Let's hope you get back your Z3 today.

    That's why I make sure I have a very capable backup phone. I lost a job opportunity I really wanted many years ago because my primary phone was a T610 that was acting up, dropping calls and it dropped the job offer call.

    Of course, this adventure tweaked the problem muscle in my lower back. It feels much better after sleeping on the aerobed last night, but today is laundry day...

    So it's Tiger Balm all day and night today to get it right for work tomorrow.

    The phone is suitable enough for 'working' hours. It's on the weekends or days off that it fails miserably.

    My main concern right now is about a better carrier. However I'm not liking what I'm seeing. I don't need minutes so much. I want data more than anything else and all the plans here are OTT (for me) with text and minutes and crap with data plans.

    Then there's the issue with roaming...

    B2, and it's charging at the moment. Will use it to monitor my sleep tonight. This will do as I don't have the Band, which I always wanted.

    So I wasn't able to update Lumia 820 since 3 Win 10 updates ago, it wouldn't find update. Tried to reinstal the Win Insider app but it didn't work so I did hard reset today in the morning. And phone hanged 😠 I got that well known sad face. So I reverted to 8.1 and updated to 1066. So far quite good, it lags but not so much as it did at first and it actually looks nice :D

    If I got Snapchat on Wp I would give it a try as a daily. I know I'm lame for using Snapchat but that's how it is in our generation :)

    Just got my bluetooth adapter for the car. :) I'll give it a try this weekend and see how good it works. For 6 I thought it was worth a shot. :)

    I also just ordered tempered glass protectors for my Z3. Decided that it might be a good idea. I know they're not perfect but I'm hoping they'll help.

    Do a review. I like what I saw in some the write-ups, but curious to her your thoughts.

    It was a nice phone for its time. I just had that bad experience and wasn't fond of it after that as much.

    I'm on tempered glass for mine and I love it. I didn't line them up as well as possible, but they still feel great. Edges are sharp as a mofo, but adds a nice premium feel to a premium phone. More glass on a glass and metal phone? Yes please.

    I wanted to get the wireless charging base for the Z3, but it is too expensive for my tastes. May dig around for one in the fall. The only accessory I would really like to get is the holder kit for my SWR50. How much is Sony selling them for in the UK?

    Once you go tempered glass you can't go back to plastic protectors that easily.

    Which are you referring to?

    Sony Mobile Wireless Charging Kit for Sony Xperia Z3: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-DK48-Ma...pUvbUpU3162625

    I have a knock off version of the docking station. Was pretty cheap. It works but I needed to 'fix' it so it would work with the phone.

    Due to the rise of these Chinese OEMs, if HTC doesn't turn it around, they may be dead within the next five years...or sooner. Ironic possible fate for the company who was the first Asian Tiger to challenge the big boys head on...

    The first link. I don't need the base, just the case. Amazon here was selling it for $60 and the kit as in your link for $110. eBay here has the case only for $80. I'll continue to juggle just fine with the magnetic adapter. I had a great knock off dock station that my friend who bought the Z Ultra is now happily using.
