billgates:
Telecom store at Sylvia Park mall in Auckland has a live unit that you can play around wth. 

Telecom Newmarket also
But don't expect then to know anything.. Tried to sell me a usb charger and gel cover... not knowing they already came with the phone.
I was her first customer that bought a lumia.   
Telecom sent me a text a week later, offering  me a a training session with one of there "phone rangers" I really felt like replying with " give my half hour voucher to Telecom Newmarket.. they need it!"

My Nokia Lumia is already running that version. It was released in Singapore and I believe the Nokia Lumia distributed in New Zealand already had it installed (or perhaps some of the devices).

Also it's been distributed in Australia via Telstra and Dick Smith. I don't think this is the update we are looking for...

I currently have every service possible running and find I am just getting short of a day which can be a pain.

I find i get the battery critical warning around 7/8pm and by the time I go to bed it has shut itself down.

What services should I be switching off to save battery?

I disable all Background apps (in Settings | Applications | Background). I also disable Feedback, and Update Checking.

Right, sorry for getting people's hopes up.  I don't have the 800 to check the current version.

putting the phone into Battery Saver mode is a faster way to disable all the background tasks

I am having an issue on the 800 and bluetooth
I have a jabra   clip on sunvisor type handsfree and it pairs up fine 
Outgoing calls work fine
Incoming calls it wont auto answer the call and put it through the hands free.
I have to pick up the phone and press the bluetooth tile?
any tips apart from RTFM? 


My old HTC Touch would answer after 3 rings on incoming calls and work fine

yours confused?

Just a heads up Telecom have started sending out emails about the pre-order gifts so check your emails.

Won myself an Xbox 360 Kinect :)

Thank you Very VERY much Telecom.

Oh the Lumia 800 is awesome as well!

Hi There

I hope someone can help me. I bought a lumia 800 yesterday. When I had it connected to my wifi yesterday the internet was working fine and the websites were loading ok. this morning when I am not connected to it but connected to 3G some websites refuse to load. but apps like people, FB, etc are working. Its a telecom version i am using on Vodafone.

Any help would be appreciated.

I don't know where you are but if your not in the city it will only be running on 2G and I find the HTC Titan does not work well on low bandwidth connections but works perfect on WIFI.
I am in Greytown and we have some of the worst coverage in the Wairarapa so I can't get much use of it anywhere in town due to only 1 bar of 3G outside and usually no coverage inside.

Luckly we have Wifi in town and at home so that is my work around.
