    Hi, i face some issue:
    - lock screen enable, and i go to setting>system>about. The screen still rotate
    - Facebook (add account) setting>system>email+account. No facebook
    - Xbox/games --> all move to list of application (COuld't open that. Try again)
    1) some people have reported that screen rotation issue. Should get fixed when firmware comes out in 2 months or so.
    2) fb account wont be there now. From now on, you would have to install the Facebook app from store (not the beta one) and then it would integrate with your people hub. Direct integration has been removed, now apps would integrate only. And Facebook messages wont come in the messaging hub as Facebook is forcing all os to move to the Facebook messenger application.
    3) you cant disable them from displaying in the all list. Try opening from the games hub only. Haven't seen that issue anywhere.

    I have been facing the first problem, of Rotation Lock not working in 'About' since the GDR3 update. Perhaps Microsoft wishes to keep it that way.

    After 8.1 Developer Preview, the camera stops working after each use. Have to restart my phone to get it working again.

    Hello all,

    I updated my HTC 8xt to 8.1 on the 10th and have noticed several items thus far. Here is my list:

    1.) Wifi issues - times out and will actually provide an error when you attempt to turn it back on (see screen shot). Once this occurs the only way to rectify it is by restarting the phone. I've seen some folks mention that turning off battery saver will resolve the issue, but that brings me to my next issue

    2.) Battery life - my battery life is poor. Much poorer than before. I've gone back through and disabled all the background tasks, NFC, BT, and WiFi but I am just not getting the milage with 8.1 that I got with wp8
    3.) Phone will not wake - at times, the phone will not power on by pressing the power/sleep button. I've been able to work around this by waking the device using the camera button. Also, this doesn't seem to be occuring while the wifi is off.
    4.) Visual VM - Sprint Visual Voice Mail no longer opens. I'm sure Sprint will have to update the app for this to work again. I'll hold my breath. :-P
    5.) Internet Sharing - In settings, I cannot open internet sharing. It simply crashes back to the settings menu again.
    6.) Find My Phone - In settings, I cannot open Find My Phone. It simply crashes back to the settings menu again.

    I'm still testing. I'm add more if/when I find it :-P

    Getting quite a few little annoying bugs. WiFi and mobile signal strength seem to have taken a hit, Me tile keeps changing between high res image and, well, definitely not high res, accounts don't always sync. Kind of wish I'd waited for the full release. Lumia 925.

    Finally installed it on my L520. Being in India, at first, had a hard time to get the curtain. After a couple of changes in the Language and Region, Cortana is working just fine. Tiles BG, Action Center, Speed Dial, Showing Contacts with numbers impressed me a lot... Thanks for the update

    I don't know if this is a bug but my phone gets heated up. This wasn't the case before WP 8.1 preview!

    My report: Lumia 822

    Drained my battery so fast.
    I needed to do many changes to prevent it.

    Keep Wi-Fi active when screen turn off. Doesn't exist anymore, it should come back. If you don't turn off wifi by your end; you'll have many troubles.

    Cortana MUST to know locations ALWAYS, why? It doesn't make me sense to activate it and has a big impact in my battery too for the same reason.

    Bugs/Issues I have noticed on my Nokia Lumia 1520:

    •My Back, Start, and Search buttons sometimes freeze.
    •Cortana listens on her own without me holding the search button.
    •The screen freezes, receiving no input. (Have to turn off display and again to get back to what I was doing)
    I get the same error as your first bullet point.

    I just reported a bug to MS via their chat Services. The problem appears whenever I switch to "on" or back to "off" the Battery Saver; the Location Services are setting themselves to ON.
    I suggest you all to report all issues not only in WP Central Community (I thank you all) but also to Microsoft's bug and error reporting/fixing teams there.

    Hello I'm new here:)
    I noticed some Internet Explorer bugs.
    -When you closing tabs there is a glich, not every time(didn't had this on gdr3)
    -tabs are changing positions in wierd order. When you open page in new tab its before actual, but the second tab is after the main you open from. Its getting more wierd when you open one of the new tabs and try to swap to main one or other, what happens? They mixed again. Don't get it
    -when you 'back' click till exit and reopen IE the new tab is empty(yay finally), but when you close IE by multitasking X and the reopen, the last page loads also, dunno if supposed to be like that
    - okay this one will be fun, not every embedded video loads, like supposed to be in new html5 modifications . First example. Go to redtube(lol) and check, for the mobile website doesn't work, only sound is played, desktop ver works well;-)

    New multitasking. Its sick. Can someone explain how this should work? After work on few apps/settings I have plenty of them in memory (back key don't closes them anymore), I have to manually close them, they lay in memory so batt is more drained right etc? The OS is not faster in that way imho. It's same. Don't see point of keep them in memory and why MS made it. Can someone make a review of that please.
    I have more bugs to post but ill do it later
    Thanks. Owner of Lumia 920

    I don't know if anyone has the same problem with the sound quality on videos, everytime I fast foward a video when it starts to play again you get a loud speaker noise, it sounds like a loud tap
    Same here, forward or backwards when playing. I tried it with all volumes off and it still did it. Could be a hardware thing?

    This only happens on the native video player, the inline player on IE works perfectly fine, it just has the timeline bar (probably not the right word) - which I prefer, personally - instead of search forward and back buttons.

    CORTANA BUG:

    I was using Cortana just fine after getting 8.1 yesterday, as well as everything else. All of a sudden, Cortana stopped connecting to the internet. This meant she could only perform tasks locally, on my phone, or search for phrases on my phone; I could NOT search the internet through Cortana. My wifi and data were fine, as I checked and tested both. After several resets, resetting/turning Cortana on and off, all of the basic fixes were checked. For some reason, "Internet Sharing" caught my eye. I believe my carrier doesn't support it, as it automatically turns off after a few minutes, but I turned it on and this enabled Cortana/internet searching though Cortana again. Oddly enough, Internet Sharing automatically turned off again and Cortana is working, but I think if I turn it off myself, it disables Cortana. This seems to be a real bug, as the two are completely unrelated.

    Guys, reset the phone and wipe everything but do a backup first and most of your issues will disappear. Even after the wipe and reset, I have issues with wifi and the store.

    Is everybody facing the same issue? sometimes when the phone is idle for 30 mins or so, the phone will be freezed on the lockscreen and my trick so far to unlock it is by keeping pressing the camera key which is annoying. this kept happening since I updated my Lumia 1520.

    last night the worst case ever happened! .. the phone freezed while it was idle on the charger and even the camera key was not enough to wake it up - I hard reset the device using the power + low volume key to get it back on .. and even worse ... before I hard reset it ... I tried to call my phone from another mobile it was ringing but the phone actually was not ringing ! thats so unreliable and I really should've just waited for the WP 8.1 official update and the firmware update to come :(

    and by the way .. I tried to enable, and disable, glance as I thought it might be the problem .. but it keeps happening again and again :(

    Just a quick note about a few things i have noticed whilst using my Nokia 925 after update. The battery gets used alot quicker and after looking around the phone does not seem to sleep. I have had to turn off notifications from some apps because even though i have the allow apps to post notifications to the lock screen un-checked the phone still wakes up for every notification even when it is on night mode. The notification section is great but if you cannot use it because the apps are constantly updating and draining the battery, then this is an issue. I have tried changing numerous settings a soft reset today. Last night the phone had 89% battery when it entered night mode but now down to 20%, new phone just 2 weeks old. So i do not know if this is an apps problem or notification problem. Do not have the Contana as in Portugal but tried it and cannot wait till its available so she cannot be the reason for my battery usage.
