freitasm: Man, your hosting sucks. Just upload to Geekzone, will you?


The pictures wont load. I thought it was the browser on the Lumia 710 but even at the computer (Chrome) they wont load.

This is odd. I can see the images fine via IE10 desktop version on Windows 8. If I use Chrome or IE10 on metro or any other browser, I cannot see them either.

I think it's SkyDrive. Well it works but I am guessing it not displaying the images because I did not share the images and thus it needs my credentials to show the images. 

Fixing this now.

Good news I guess. Telecom/Nokia are selling the Lumia 800 with the latest firmware installed. Just checked the firmware version and it's the same one as what many have started to receive today via Zune which improves on battery life, camera quality, audio issues and more. Vodafone's version of Lumia 800 should also come pre-installed with the latest firmware as the one leaked on the internet is actually for VFNZ.

I have had my 710 for 4 days now. Loving it, the whole operating system is just a pleasure to use.
It makes doing anything on your phone fun.

The market is a bit of a let down, I guess it is what i expected. I see the problem being the high prices in their.

Not sure about the screen though, I have been really careful with it and never put anything in my pocket with the phone yet it already has a large scratch and the corner is chipped. Lucky i got phone insurance and they will fix it.

Clearly i need a lesson in keeping my phone safe.

freitasm: You can start by running a Windows Phone test drive from your browser (it works on most mobile platforms so you should see it in your screen just fine).



For anyone with an Android, grab the Chrome to phone app from the market and install the Chrome browser extension and you can send this straight to your device for excellent party time.

I'm thinking about picking up a Lumia 900 when they are released. That Nokia Navigation looks very nice.

Really, you have to ask who the muppets are at the telecom website ....
You go to buy a 800 online  and they ask you "do you want to buy a SD card with that sir"  ...
on a phone with no SD slot.....

I was asked the exact same thing, until i pointed out not only does the phone not have a slot but windows Phone 7.5 doesn't support SD cards.

Technically Windows Phone does support it

For instance the Samsung Focus is expandable with Class 4 microSDHC cards

Oh ok, it is just in the features of Windows Phone 8 it said supports SD cards - so i figured 7.5 doesn't support them.

But only technically - it formats the SD into a non-standard format for use in the phone, so you can't use it as removeable, swappable storage to move media to and from the phone. You end up with more on-board storage, but its more-or-less welded to the phone.
