Does the 930 available through Vodafone come with the wireless charging plate? Anything else in the box other than phone+charger?

To those who have this phone, how much storage space is left over from the 32GB for apps and music etc. ?  And what do you like about it, and what don't you like about it?

the only thing I don't like is lack of Glance screen functionality, potentially the lack of SD card as well, both of which 1520 has, plus a larger battery

930 is a beautiful looking phone though, wireless charging is still cool

Upgraded sister in law's 4 year old iPhone 4 to White Nokia Lumia 930 on Friday from local parallel import shop. Much lighter than the Lumia 1520 and better display I think too though I would not buy a phone anymore that does not supports the glance screen personally myself. Got offered Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 as well when checked for update.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Silly question, but will the 930 work on Spark/Skinny or is it GSM only?

It has all the NZ bands except the recent 700 APT that only about 2/3 other phones have

As per the other thread I got my Nokia Lumia 930 today. I'm migrating from a Nokia E5 and have a few queries that I can't find the answer for...

- how do I listen to streaming audio? On the E5 (before it got switched off) there was Nokia Internet Radio, which I found very easy to use. The closest this one has requires some XBox login to be setup? If I try Radio under Music, I get an error telling me this is for authorised XBox users (or something similar)...?
- is there an on/off switch (as in to actually switch it off, not just place it into standby), or is this phone on all the time?

I'm sure I'll come up with further questions the more I use the phone but if anyone has any ideas re the above I would be most grateful...

thanks freitasm.  I pretty much said same, but my browser crashed and I lost reply :P  (perils of edge builds)

rdio and iheartradio apps also exist for windows phone.

Xbox music can stream music but there is a monthly fee associated (around $12?), like spotfy premium.  with xbox music you can also upload your music to onedrive and then stream - pretty sure you don't even need sub for that capability.

radio, under music, is a feature of xbox music that requires a sub.  it plays 'similar artists' continually.
