slade50000: Would be great to hear what apps people are finding the most useful/fun.

Would anyone care to share their list?


Baconit - Reddit reader
Zite - News reader that learns what you like - saves adding new feeds
Weave - Also a nice news reader
Accuweather - Preinstalled on the Telecom 920
Markets and Me+ - Syncs with your Google finance portfolio
Bloomberg - Also good for stocks
BBC News Mobile - Unofficial but nice
DW - Deutsche Welle news
AAWP - App for one of the best Windows phone sites, good podcast
XE - Currency
das Image - Nice web image browser
Plants vs Zombies - Well made tower defense style game
Wordament - great time killer
In the Know - Google Analytics
Soundhound - Recognises music, finds and downloads via Xbox music pass
Metrotube - Youtube
IMDb - Internet movie database
All the Nokia apps
NZ Herald
NZ TV Schedule - Simple but works
Photosynth - Microsoft's fancy 360 degree imaging app + service - Not yet ready for WP8
Tune in - Radio/Podcasts - not yet ready for WP8
Podcasts! - Similar to Tune-in for podcasts
Pingdom Pulse - If you use the Pingdom server monitor service
Photobeamer - Show your photos on any screen with a browser
Rowi - Twitter
Remote Desktop - The one by Topperware as it properly supports non-SSL NLA (the dev of the other RDP app argued with me that it wasn't possible... he's wrong)
TripAdvisor - travel info
TopGear News - what it is
Thumba photo editor
Translator - Point camera and translate
Flicks - local movies
All the big names apps: Facebook, Sydrive, Skype, PayPal, eBay, Amazon, Linked-in

There are heaps of good apps. What's missing for me are things that are more obscure such as decent music/sequencer/synth apps and also all the cool 3D games we see on IOS/Android. We have Armed and Harvest, but we've had them for nearly 2 years.

Hey guys how much are you paying for your 920s?

I got quoted $879 for a telecom one from a local shop.

Any one got one for a better price?

Full price $999 from the Telecom online shop. Anything less than that is a good buy.

I imported mine and got it for $854 inc shipping, but I was lucky that customs didn't charge me.

Both B&B and Noel Leeming said they would do it for that price. I ended up purchasing it from Noel for the FlyBuys

DSE has 10% off tonight till 8pm on cellphones and have the nokia lumia 920 in stock (black telecom ones).

I however am having trouble getting any discount on there website, i called them and they could not answer why as well just that "its not 5pm yet" from there AU call centre, however were going to let me place the order over the phone.


Want to see if it works after 5pm AU time however after the nexus 7 bonus offer stuff up and the Iphone photo on the nokia lumia 920 product page i really don't expect it to work at all.

I sold a Lumia 920 tonight as part of that same promotion and it was still $999. I didn't check but it must have already been on "special"

Nope it was not, none of the specials worked (the percentage off ones) i went over a number of different products on the webstie and none of them gave any discount that was advertised (unless it was a computer they had on the webpage).  False advertising at its best.

My camera is now fixed (after sending it back to Nokia)

Anyone can help me with the vibrate issue. Everytime my phone rings, I only have two short bursts of vibrate then stopped. Afaik last time the vibrate will go on as long as the ringtone goes...

If I set to vibrate only, it will continue to vibrate until I answer the call.

Anyone has similar behaviour?

edit: I have also hard reset this phone twice.

anyone?

For those using mail from yahoo.com, there is limitation in term of what password you can use.

My email password has always been this: aaa+444*bbb

Unfortunately winpho does not recognize special character for password.

Changed my password to combination of alphabet and numbers only - it works like a treat.
