    Congratulations to all the proud owners of NL 920. I’m in the market for a new phone…have been a BB users and looking for a change.
    The current is toss is b/w NL 920 and Nexus 4.
    Had a questions of on the NL 920 : If I buy a full price NL 920 from AT&T, will it work in India (post unlocking?)
    If you buy the AT&T model at 450 USD and get it unlocked, yes the phone will work in India. But AFAIK no one has been able to unlock the phone yet from AT&T.

    I have a good chance of getting the yellow 2mrw if not I'm going for the black...done waiting! The dealer has promised me one pcs out of the 2 he will get 2mrw n the red is available pretty much everywhere. Also the yellow 920 is being sold at exorbitant price(45K) by a guy who has 5pcs... :|

    Hi Guys,
    I got my red lumia from chennai a week ago n so far its been splendid. For me, its a huge jump from a nokia 5130 to a lumia 920 n am still figuring out what all I can do with it. Some questions thoough,
    1. WhatsApp - I kno a lot has been spoken about this. I am facing the case where the messages don't get delivered immediately but as a chunk later. Is anyone else facing this ? Is this because of some setting that I missed or is this is a possible 'bug' ?
    2. The maps - The maps are perfect for driving and navigation, but they don't seem to have too many landmarks. Also, the satellite views seem to be taking for ever to load. I generally tested if my small town in kerala was available and it was. But the satellite images dint show anything. I know I shouldn be comparing :) but satellite images of my kerala town was better in google images. So hopefully, its a matter of time before we get better data ?
    3. Location / GPS : Is there any way to control them separately or are they both the same ? When I open drive, it says looking for GPS but I cant find any option to turn it off. Pardon my ignorance, let me know if they are one and the same. They seem to be different in my friend's android device.
    4. The camera - I have never been much of a photographer and almost all articles speak of the camera. I tried some night shots and some day shots - all with the default auto settings n this is what I got. Am not able to judge if they stand up to the reputation. What do you guys think ? All images are taken with default settings and NO flash. Also, in case there is a light source nearby, it seems to create a purple tinge. They seem to look good in this view, but if you zoom into the original size, then they are not that sharp.

    Dear Nair, welcome to L 920 world :) I too upgraded from a Symbian (C7) and I can understand how much refreshing you feel about the new OS and also the limitations you may have :P

    1. Whatsapp is still buggy... and the improvements are still being incorporated. Soon we may have a better working Whatsapp as per their own statement.
    2. Maps provided by Nokia are basically for driving and identifying locations. Yes, in India still may POS's need to added. Satellite image is entirely different thing. Google has higher resolution pictures compared to Navteq(Nokia Maps/Here), but it is matter of time for Navteq/Bing to update the maps. But the kind of infrastructure Google has for maps is unparalleled.
    3. Location and GPS are pretty much the same. You need to turn on you GPS for identifying your location and then provide you with directions. Also, WP/apps uses your locations for optimizing search information local to your area.
    4. Your photos are really good for automatic settings. The purple tinge can be because of light reflection from some source... Playing with settings has produced varied results for me... From exceptional to pathetic :P Yes, low light photos are just amazing... no matter how much flash you have you can never get that kind of images :) Day light photos are little softer, you can increase the sharpness using some post processing. Have you tried creative studio? Sometimes pictures on my friend's N8 were better, may be because of bigger sensor. But for L 920 Nokia focused more on low light photography. Hopefully, in future they combine both PV 808 and L 920 :)

    Cheers,
    LS

    @sabbynair 1. whatsapp has some problem becoz its the same old one in wp7 and do not take advantage of new os. But dont worry. New update is coming soon.2. Nokia maps have very less true satallite images for india. They want to give best experience possible so its taking time to make satallite images available for india coz u know india is tough nut to crack when it comes to mapping and navigation.3. GPS can never be turned off bcoz no option is provided. Moreover there is no need to do this becoz it only turns on when it is needed. Only option is that u can stop sharing your location to some apps and websites which uses it to provide location based services by switching off Location. It was need for privacy reason so its here. And if less app will use it, gps will also remain turned off for longer.4. Ammm, i guess you are expecting too much from a phone's camera. See the pics, they are too nice, and i bet u cant get those amazing night shots from any phone on auto mode. And if you want more, then you need to be a bit tricky. For a start, try different seans option in settings and use night mode in perticular to take dark shots.For zooming, its obvious that pic will not be sharp when u zoom. Its becoz the sensor is 8.7mp only. For best zoom after click, more mp is needed, like the 41mp camera of nokia 808. Case Solved.

    @iamSherlocked. Thanks for ur reply. I guess you are right :) Maybe I was expecting too much. But that was because I saw some forums where ppl had posted some pics n they looked top class. Its probably bcos of my lack of photography knowledge that I thot they were all shot with default settings. I will play around more with the photo settings.

    One more question : I still have not set up my gmail. I read that if I set it up as an outlook account, then I will be able to check mails and the push might not happen immediately but at user defined intervals (15, 30 mins etc). Is this correct ? There is an article today that MS is trying to provide a workaround as Google is pulling the plug on Jan 30. Should I wait for that and set it up or does it not matter at all ? How should i set up my gmail ? I dont use the google calendar so I dont really care about it. All I want to do is use my mail and send replies to my gmail contacts. Please advice.

    Set it up today as Google Mail. You can then sync email, calendar and contacts and will work after Jan 30 too. If you set it up after Jan 30, you can sync only email, no contacts or calendar.

    Hi All,

    I have been using my lumia 920 on Vodafone Network (INDIA) since i purchased the phone. It was working quite well till today morning and all of a sudden i am not able to see the EDGE symbol. There is no G or E or H (Tried with both 2G & 3G). I called the customer care and they are saying my phone doesnt have any settings. (Its been a week i am using the net). In access point, i could see Vodafone (active) which is not editable nor viewable. I created a new apn named vodafon with apn "www" and saved it (Left all other fields empty) and activated it. Turned off my phone for 5 minutes. No luck.. Have toggled to default settings again. What should i do. I doesnt even know what is the problem. :( My data connection is ON. Is there any other place which i missed out to do the checks.

    Thanks in advance..

    PS: Do we have an option to turn off the accelerometer? Sometimes, unnecessarily the screen flips :|

    I have the same problem too. When i got my phone, I had the E symbol. Once I started using wifi, i had turned the data connection to Off. Now, even if i turn off wifi and turn data connection back on, I dont see the E symbol. I am not sure if i changed any other setting.

    Did you know Google takes its mapping data from Navteq ?
    I guess you are mistaken. I admit that Google used to use Navteq data till 2006/07. But later they moved to Tele atlas. Now they obtain data from multitude of sources mainly from, NOAA, Digital Globe, Terraetrics, and Geoeye. In fact Nokia also obtains some of their data from Digital Globe. But resolution of maps and providing map data is dependent on many other parameters... As a student, I have taken courses in GIS (Geographical information systems) and part of my lab was to study aerial mosaics, satellite imagery and interrelate geographical data.

    Here is a link from theverge detailing how Nokia, Apple and Google get their Map data and how they display them....

    i bought this phone on 11th this month and since then i have been using the network with wifi/edge. I am not sure, it just happened like anything today... I also doubt there is some network issue as well...BTW which network you are using?
