Brightpoint I think you mean. Probably what they mean is they can't confirm when they will get new stock, not that will never be any new stock

My guess would be a month away

I just got rid of the last Red 920 I had otherwise I could help you out

You realise you can get the proper 920 cases from Nokia which are brilliant and totally cover the phone and let you hide whatever the underlying colour, is if you wish

ie my Black is now protected with a Cyan case

sidders80: Thanks for the response guys. I am going to try and find a red one tomorrow at a telecom store first and then go from there. 


In store has limited stock of the colours so you may have to buy it through the online store, that was how i had to get mine.

sidders80: talk about experience and this is what I have experienced so far. Bought a red 920 less than 2 weeks ago. Had some issues and spoke to telegistics who said this needs to be booked early life failure so go back to your retailer and they will organise a replacement for you. Went back to warehouse stationery last week who sent my phone in. Today I get a call that red one is out of stock and there is no further stock coming in so my options are either take a black one or take a refund as brightstar cant supply them with a red or a yellow one but have heaps of black ones. Oh and also if I want the black one I need to return the wireless charger which doesnt come with the black one.


what was the actual issue that caused the failure?

brightpoint is vodafone supplier brightstar is telecom. Thanks nathan I think thats a good idea too. Returning the charging plate is another issue. The screen had freezes, flickering, random reboots and the return was advised by telegistics where it had gone for repair.

I can confirm that the Nokia cases are very very good, it's almost impossible to tell the phone has a case on it.  It would be a very good way to change the colour if you can only get black.

Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive have been renamed Here Drive and Here Maps. There's an update for those out now as well as updated NZ and AU maps.

Mines on a N9 and it came with the phone.  I'm guessing they're the same design case since the phone design is the same.

Why would they change the name?  They already have a good brand name in the market, who knows what or who "Here" is

nathan:
DuncanMcC: One thing I hoped Portico might fix (reset) was my Exchange connection. It's still set to 'push' - but just polls every 15 minutes, as it's always done on my 920.

This happenned after I changed phones from my Samsung i917.

I guess what I'd like to do is completly remove my Exhchange connection/profile - and hopefully on re-connecting it will pick it up from scratch again, and start "push"ing - instead of polling like it is.

But I don't know how to do that.

I've already disconnected the phone from Exchange, turned off the Exchange "Mobile Serivies" - everything. And then re-connected, but to no avail.


I will bet money on the fact that this is nothing to do with WP but your infra

In my experience this is usually down to time out settings on perimeter devices like firewalls in regards to inactive HTTP connections. If this is set too low then you will have this behavior.
Your point that it works with Android and not with Windows Phone 8 is all about how direct push is implemented.  Windows Phone is far more optimised with EAS to save power and data, we try to setup a  ping interval based on handshake with the server and will try to get as close as 8 minutes between the pings as possible, it might be longer.

iPhone and Android implement their own way of doing this which is different, normally hardcoded into the device based on a fix number not variable like WP

So check your timeout settings for inactive HTTP connections on Firewall regardless if this worked with Android devices before. If there is a timeout value set below 8 minutes then this have to be raised to 31 minutes to make sure that the firewall does not kill the connection.

The fallback if this happens is 15 minutes scheduled synch so it fits the bill based on what you are seeing

I hope this helps


Not really :)

Sure the Android may do it's own stuff when connecting to Exchange.  But what about the i917 Focus - the Windows 7.5 phone.  It worked fine.

And I've just done a wee test.  I changed the default addy on Exchange.  It is immediately picked up on the phone.  Immediately (within seconds).  If I change the sync setting on the phone to say 30 minutes.  It shows nothing on the phone account.  If I set it back to "as items arrive", it shows it's synching upon saving.  And if I set it back to 30 minutes, it continues to poll every 15.!

Another phone got added today, an Android - guts me that it works straight off. 

I figure I'm in for the big reset to fix this problem.  There are two Windows phones, about 4 iPhones and about 4 Androids on the server - only mine doesn't work.  Only mine ignores changing the sync setting.  My old Samsung Focus (WP 7.5) was fine - the new 920 doesn't work. :(

Ok, so im on my second 920 and things were going well until this morning at about 3am, my 920 just restarted its self and when it came on ,it was in flight mode, no matter what i did ,it would not stop flight mode. Thw wifi was on and connected but it would say no connection if i tried to access online stuff, and the network remained ,no network. After calling rogers support and spending 2. Hours, we tried a factory reset but at this point, when id go into settings or any apps, the screen would go black and return to the start menu. So we tried the key combo but when turning of the phone, it would just stay stuck on the goodbye screen , tried every option to reset but nothing. So the tech gave me a support number and i am going to exchange it for another red 920 for tge last time. Before bed i plugged it in the charger while its on the goodbyw screen, this morning at 8am, the phone went restated i guess and went off flight mode, it seems to be working fine now but i am not risking it and am waiting my 15days, i just have to wait for my local store to get red920 in stock


 

my first 920 kept locking up and required a soft reset every time, twice a day after day 4. Also, no skype,nokia drive or facebook....




 

ALSO NOTE,the manufacturing date on my current 920's box is 4/2013 .. Time travel?i am in canada.
