Yep, it is the 735 that comes in with a back cover that supports wireless charging. For 730, you need to buy it seperately. 735 doesn't seem to be available in India.

Looks like a combination of both.
In general, the networks of all the telecom service providers are bad, and Bangalore seems to be taking the cake. I know this is OT, but I hope that with the spectrum auction coming up during early 2015, this problem should get sorted out, till then, we will have to live with call drops/call hunting/not reachable/bad networks etc..etc..

Anyone else facing the same issue?

Another issue is not able to login to Nokia Account. This is preventing me from syncing the Here Maps waypoints and collections.
All these issues were magically resolved. From Saturday morning, the Facebook app works fine and I am able to access the Nokia account -for syncing the Here Maps.

Default Re: The Windows Phone Thread

Guys I am moving from Windows to iOS. I will be exchanging my Lumia 520 for an IPhone 6. Please guide with the following:

1. How do I transfer the contacts to my new phone

2. How do I completely wipe out my Lumia so that nothing can be restored back. All my stuff is stored in the cloud hence I am worried.

The alarm snooze timer option is very much there if you tap on the alarm time. Its right at the bottom of the screen.
And the way to access albums of pics is way too obvious. You just need to swipe to the albums tab. Swipe left once and you will be there.
I am surprised you faced issues in using such basic features.

Hope this helps.

Alarm snooze time is present only on the Lumia denim and the older phones running on Cyan do not have this feature yet. Hence the two of you are confused regarding its presence. Regarding gallery, however I must say that the default gallery is the best I ve come across and yes it gives various options from viewing all images to folder by folder including your social network.

Well this reminded me of some issue I faced while pairing my dads phone with a Nokia Bluetooth headset. The device didn't show up. I forgot to research about the same then. I initially thought that the problem was with the headset since it was paired with two of my phone's and a third one before. So reset the device and now I seem to have lost it. Do try clearing the pairings of the hands free kit and check

Yeah i know that ,, My original question was how to set default windows gallery app to show "Albums" instead of "All" ? Showing ALL is pretty much annoying to me that's all.

Finally, junked my Lumia 800 after 3 years of trouble free usage. Sticking to Nokia, bought Lumia 930.

First impression is - Gorgeous. Great screen, great camera. Battery is not as bad as what reviews said.
Nicely surprised to see rich marketplace. I was missing on latest apps when I was on WP7.8.
Only problem is size. Too big for my hands and shirt pocket.

Currently on Lumia Cyan. Not sure when Denim will get updated.

Thumbs up Re: The Windows Phone Thread

Guys, Lumia Denim update had started seeding for L520 and L525.

Please go to your Settings > Phone Update

Patiently waiting for my L1520. Heard that it will be the last along with L930.

Cheers!

I think the only options are all photos or only favourites.

I upgraded Storyteller couple days back. Comes with a refreshed UI now. The 'upgrading' screen stays on for ~15 seconds. Maybe it requires an internet connection during the first start-up after updating? Please try that. I had my Wi-Fi on when I started the app after the update.
