    I am from India and have a Indian Lumia 820. As India is not so popular in the eyes of Microsoft, many of the features are not available to us even though there is no reason to block them. For example, 'Find my phone' option in my phone does not have the 'Save my phone's location periodically and before the battery runs out to make it easier to find' option & hence I do not have access to the 'Locate on Map' option in 'Find my Phone' on windowsphone.com, only Ring, Lock & Erase. I have waited for a long time for this to be enabled in various updates. And now I have decided to an experiment on my phone.

    My plan is to flash my phone with the firmware version of the US & UK Non Carrier Locked phones. I am planning to use the Navifirm+ tool for the firmware download from Nokia Servers. However I need the correct firmware version in order to not mess this up. So guys anybody having the Non Carrier Locked versions in US & UK kindly share with me the Fimware version (from About in Settings) & Manufacturer's Name (from Extras & Info in Settings).

    Also if you expect any other complications in doing this, kindly advice me as such.

    Thanks in Advance.

    Hi there just fr find my phone on map u wanna flash your phone, btw MS is looking to India fr more market may b coming forward they will bring this feature to India also, there are some 6-7 countries where this feature doesn't works..
    Only complication while flashing is bricking your phone and nulling your phone's warranty...
    Rest its all personal choice...btw did u get ur free 20gb of skydrive storage ???

    I got that option in Indonesia, but using USA as the Region in settings. Try changing the region and restart the phone first.
    Im using German OS though, since it was the first one to available with Amber.
