    SAMSUNG ATIV S - Windows Phone 8.1

    everything Works fine except ONE thing

    - screen flashes like crazy for 5 sec. after every restart/turn on
    Not this problem on my Ativ S, but does your camera work, even after switching to video and back?

    Interesting. I haven't noticed the wifi being on or off having any effect on the unlock lag problem on my Icon.
    Neither have I. I did a hard reset on my Icon with no backup, didn't install Bing Weather, had wi-fi on and had delays on power button. Shut off wi-fi and thought it was fixed and just now, I had to hold down the power button for about 10 seconds until the shutdown screen came on. I am pretty close to going back to 8.0. It seems that the minority of people who wanted features so WP was "like iPhone or android" got their wish, at the expense of a smooth and stable OS.

    Major problems with 8.1 on my Lumia 820.

    Firstly, after installing, the Music app was missing completely. At first, I couldn't gain any access to the store, but now I have access, I have tried to re-install the official Microsoft app for Music, but get the error code 80073cf3, and am completely unable to install the music app. Not sure how to get that back.

    Secondly, and most importantly, battery life has hit the floor. Absolutely shocking battery performance today, was completely dead by 4pm, normally get to the end of the day just about. Was really surprised as the very poor battery performance.

    Hi everyone,

    I have a Nokia Lumia 928 with preview of 8.1 installed.
    Is anyone else having trouble with Bluetooth connecting to a heatset or using bluetooth at all?
    If I turn bluetooth on I can connect to a headset fine, but every call that comes in or goes out shows "Speaker" mode turned on and can't be turned off.
    Then can't hear anything on the phone.
    Even adjusted the volume. I have to soft reset the device to return functionality.

    I miss the integrated twitter/facebook/linkedin status update. Now I have no way to share something simultaneously to those 3 social media
    I'm VERY happy with this update. The integrated social media being slightly downgraded is well, not a deal breaker. I've barely ever had something that needed to be posted on three places at once. I've no need to see every single update from people reporting on their endeavors buying milk, eating food or working on the car.

    Error 8000ffff using Cortana
    So when I use Cortana...seems everything works great until i try to add or set an alarm and then i get this message:
    Something is not right, Try again in a little bit: 8000ffff
    its really weird...because if i say Open Alarms...Cortana opens my alarms with no problem
    I used the app Indigo which has no problem setting my alarm...but cortana throws off this error message....I have tried removing the Indigo app..re-installing it but still no luck getting cortana to add my alarms. I did not try a hard reset because didnt want to go through the setup again and I have searched for the error code and this error code has affected mainly users of 8.0 wp phones

    Anyone else having this problem?? Any suggestions

    Not seeing a full list of apps on the notifications+actions settings Under Notifications. I am only seeing Messaging, Microsoft Account(Email), Phone, Store, WPCentral listed. Should I see other apps like facebook and twitter on this list? I first thought this was normal because maybe other apps haven't been updated to take advantage of this new notification system. But then I saw a screenshot on another thread showing this screen with several different apps and had facebook listed. Is there a way to add them? I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Also attempted a soft reset.

    I know not many people does use it. But for me who almost frequently use it to share articles, news, or something I really miss that function. Now my friends already complained to me for the lack of news they get from my timeline (both fb/twitter). I usually just have to swipe left in weave news reader and shared it with both world. :(

    When a third party app gives you a notification, they will appear in the notification+action setting to be customized where they didn't appear before.
    At least that's what I've experienced with most so far.

    If you have bing weather installed, try uninstalling it, but leaving the wifi on. That might work for you also to "fix" the lagging unlock problem. It did for me on my Icon; but I wasn't experiencing any wifi issues before (or since).
    Thank you. Currently trying this method. I disabled wifi a couple of hours ago, seemed to be working much better, then randomly went to go pick up my phone and it wouldn't even turn on. Had to do a soft reset to get an image on the screen.

    ​I doubt I'm the only person that is experiencing this, but has anyone else noticed that every connection fluctuates wildly? I'm currently watching my LTE connection on my L928 change every second from 1 to 2 to 3 bars, and back down. This occurred on WiFi at home as well.

    Maybe the matching firmware update from Nokia will fix this...
    I've been having connections ever since upgrading to 8.1 and it's frustrating. I'm just trying to be patient hoping that there will be a fix shortly. LTE and Wi-Fi both acting up.

    *launching an app was fast and consider an improvement but closing it and launching the start screen again always becomes laggy.
    *notification on glance screen are not working nor updating. :(

    Nokia Lumia 1520. LTE and Wi-Fi connection was great prior to the 8.1 upgrade. Now my LTE fluctuates often and never locks down on a strong LTE connection. Wi-Fi also is weak and sometimes drops connection. Before the upgrade, all these connections were strong and stable.
