For Aucklanders, there is the Auckland Traffic app (free version available)
Flashlight-X is a good flashlight app

freitasm: Can't you uninstall it and search the marketplace on the phone?



I did and it only finds Nokia maps when I search for Nokia Transport. Nothing new showing up in the Nokia Collection menu either in the marketplace.

Same for me. Only place I can see it is in Beta Labs and even then it says it's not compatible when I go to the QR code link provided.

Ah! As I suspected :)

When I search the Marketplace from the phone, over my WiFi connection (ISP: TelstraClear) it shows the Nokia Transport. When I search from the phone over 3G (ISP: Telecom XT) then it is not showing.

I guess it's a caching problem, probably CDN that TelstraClear points to is updated, Telecom is not.

You can also email this link below to your email address that you have configured in your Nokia Lumia device and click on the link in the email on the device and it will take you to the download screen for the app. Also as lestag mentioned, click on 'more from nokia corporation' in any of the nokia apps in the marketplace under 'nokia collection' and nokia transport will be there.

I didn't have any kind of Microsoft account before buying my Lumia and signed up for one before setting it up. I signed in to the Live and Zune networks and everything was going swimmingly. After about a week of using the unit it began failing sign in to Live ID although the error messages were nice and vague so I wasn't sure it was failing just that apparently the 'network wasn't working'.

I called 2degrees who were able to confirm their 3G network was not at fault (I could browse via IE but apps were failing to load/work) so submitted a ticket with Microsoft who told me to call Nokia. I created a ticket with Nokia who told me to reset the software and try again. After doing this I was able to replicate my original fault without fail.

A little Googling led to me to a nugget, make sure you sign in to all of the Microsoft services and make sure they all work. Apparently I had been automatically assigned a Xbox Live ID and that had expired. After logging into Xbox Live and changing it everything worked perfectly.

I hope this helps someone else who may or may not run into a similar situation.
