    So, my 920 broke about 3 months ago (long story) and as a result, I've been away from WP for some time now. But I will be ordering my Lumia 925 soon and I am looking forward to loading the GDR3 preview onto it when I get the phone.

    My question is, does GDR3 fix Facebook messaging? On my Lumia 920, Facebook messaging was TERRIBLE. It was really the only thing that I hated about my phone. I could send messaged from my phone, but it rarely ever received any messages from people. If I logged into my FB account online and compared conversations from the web to on my phone, there are tons of messages that my phone did not receive/show me.

    Can somebody test it and let me know how it works in GDR3? Thanks!

    just set your status to online or away and it will work perfectly fine. It works for me. Only downside is that you show online on FB.

    Since I downloaded GDR3, Facebook messaging has been great.

    Or set it to Busy which still receives all your messages but shows you with the mobile icon on FB.

    i have always had my messages come through every since i got my 928. Every single message always comes through no problem, only time its inconsistent is when battery saver mode is turned on but then they usually dont come through but occassionally a few do come thru.... but they not suppose to come through at all when battery saver is on...

    but as long as my phone is charged and not on battery savery they've always came through gdr2 - gdr3
