    I'm literally having only 1 issue with the EE firmware update through Nokia Software Update for Retail - every time I restart the phone, the volume resets to 13 (I like it on 20). Anyone found a way to overcome this?

    Edit:

    I contacted Nokia support directly and they say this is by design:



    This might be one of the main reasons people are complaining the notification sounds are lower after the Amber update - because they don't realise the volume resets itself!
    Mine always reverted back to Vol 19 before the update. I didn't notice that it was 13 now. I've also got a Google Nexus and it also reverts to a lower volume level on reboot and then gives a warning when you turn it up with earphones plugged in so it's probably an industry wide thing

    Does the GB-CV ROM have 4G enabled?

    Had a reply from 3UK about the status of amber on their network which unfortunately was "No further update sorry"

    Worst thing is, once the L920 becomes a discontinued model, updates from the carriers normally stop. T-mobile normally get in about 2 - 3 during the lifetime of the handset. I can see the next update being the last for a long time here with EE. Unless the Microsoft/Nokia tie in can change things.

    All the more reason to flash the cv version tbh i think and ditch the EE rom I think...

    They're never very helpful when it comes for firmware update information.

    Whenever I have called them to ask for such details, it's almost as if I'm talking to someone who doesn't have a clue what they're talking about.

    Waiting is getting a little boring now...it must be over a week on 'coming soon' by now.

    Well Guys i finally took the plunge and updated to Amber, here is my experience on the battery.

    Battery was fully charged before update, after updating battery was at 94% however from just checking settings etc it is down to 88%. According to Battery (app) discharge rate is 16.57%, now just restarted via power on and off its down to 14.36% - soft reset has increased the discharge rate to 14.6%. Therefore I imagine enabling 4g is causing the high discharge rate.

    However some people have claimed to get longer battery life, on that note I guess I need to go through a cycle to let it settle.

    Also as I was checking my settings I noticed, I still had the option set google for search - not that I want to! lol.

    This is off topic but want some feedback, I got offered Unlimited minutes, texts & 1 gb of 4g data with O2 for 20 a month shall I take sign up for another 12? or go onto a rolling and not renew?

    Edit: Nokia have released an update for Audio Settings, it appears under call + SMS filter.

    With the Amber Update, my photos are better than they ever been.
    Are you talking with Pro Cam App?

    Hmmm battery is a little low. Should I wait a while or just install the update while it's plugged in?

    The update has downloaded and it's done the prepare to install step...it's at the screen saying your update is ready to be installed plus there are version numbers.

    Update complete...well, it completed a little while ago, I just got sidetracked listening to some choons.

    Happy with how everything looks and feels. Just feels marvellous being able to tell the time without looking at my watch or unlocking the phone! :)

    Hmmm I was under the impression the updates would sort out the 'Other storage' bug. I see no change. 4GBs lost to 'other' still.

    Got this tonight, but I tell you what, the new text message tone is so quiet compared to the old one. It's really annoying me.

    Plus my parrot background from the lock screen has gone :( (the one with the green feathers, loved that)

    Very disappointed I can't get back any of this 'other' 4GBs. That's a sizeable chunk of my total space. I've tried the SkyDrive/date trick but that had no effect :(

    I think the only way you'll reduce the "Other Storage" issue will be to do a full reset and start over again. My other has crept up to 1.95gb over the past 2 weeks.
