No such settings in WP7.8. I think this is WP8 feature.

Mods,
When are you planning for the TBHP app? There were some hints about something in the pipeline by year end. We are just 2 days away from 2014.



I would strongly discourage grey market for the smartphones. You'll lose a lot more in case your phone gets bricked due to an update and you need to take it to Nokia Care. Most new OS revisions have this risk of some update not being fully compatible with a specific phone model and so on which would be addressed for free if you are within warranty. I've seen some devices getting bricked in the initial days of WP7 as well as WP8 which were replaced free of cost under warranty. By the time your phone goes out of warranty, it would be a popular model and devs would have got a hang of it regarding what works and what doesn't.

OT: Nice choice for username
Hmm.. if these problem persists then its better to go with bill & warranty product, thanks mate for the warning.
Thanks
PS: still confused between 1520 v/s 925 though.

520 and 521 do not come with real time battery.
Hence the date and time will go wonky every time the phone restarts.


Also the auto time update issue appears to be Airtel problem since I have been seeing UTC+4 time zone for quite some time. The Nokia folks were quite surprised seeing it! Airtel as usual claims everything is right at their end.

I'm trying to figure out the back and forward keys in the default browser on the Nokia Lumia 925. Are they present or absent on the browser? If absent how to go to next page from previous viewed page. Thanks.

According to the explanation on the Nokia forum the main battery should keep the clock going even if there is no real time battery for the clock. The clock should reset only if the main battery is removed. In any case it's just silly not having a battery for the internal clock.

There is no forward button, but to go back you can use the back button.

@vikram_d, @vvrchandra and other fellow 925 users, how good (duration) is the battery life when 3G is kept on?

I am seeing erratic battery life when I keep the phone on 2G network, however when I enable the 3G network, the battery drains at quite a fast rate (more than 15% per hour), irrespective of whether I'm using the phone or not.

Please do share your own experiences - I'm planning to make a visit to the nokia center for the same if this is just my phone experience.

I have a 920 and not the 925. If you are facing battery drain check what apps are running in the background and disable those that you don't need.

I am not that concerned with the (non-3G) erratic battery supply, I am aware of one or other app being responsible for the differences (I guess).

My query is more to do with the battery backup with 3G kept on. My friend's 620 runs more than 24 hours with 3G on, the same on my mobile doesn't do more than 6-8 hours. And this is consistently seen over several days.

Edit: How much does your 920 run with 3G kept on?

With 3G on, my Lumia 820 will definitely not last more than 12-14 hours even with moderate to light usage. But lasts more than 24 hours on 2G.

My 920 goes anywhere from 18 - 36 hours depending on usage. I keep 3G always on. I tried switching to 2G also but in my case it didn't make too much of a difference. Max difference it made was 1 hour over a 36 hour period.

Thanks. That's a huge huge difference. Makes my case strong to make the visit to the service center. Any 925 users to share their own phone experience?

Note I said depending on usage. On low phone usage I regularly get 30 - 36 hours on a charge.

I have been using the Nokia Lumia 925 for nearly 2 months now, I am not a very heavy app user, but I setup all settings to conserve battery viz. disable location detection, setup personal email refresh to hourly, disabled glance, blocked most background apps unless really needed etc. Most non-adhoc calls (typically work related telecons) are on wired earphones (which saves battery) and with very little/none app usage.

With this I get a battery life of around 40-48 hours. This is with BT always on, 3G always on, corporate email setup to real-time refresh. After 40-48 hours, the battery slips into battery saver mode (configured to 20%).

This is the list of most battery-conservation settings, that i follow (except keeping BT/3G on always).

Perfect. Most of the above (battery saving) settings were already done on my phone And still the above performance. I wonder what is the timelines taken by Nokia Care center to provide a resolution.

P.s. Thanks for the update. I was on parallel thoughts to sell-off the phone, battery was one of the main points I shifted away from Android, apart from many!
