If you can not wait for the update, there is a cool hack to bypass the Microsoft server and get the update directly from the Nokia server. To do this, just follow the below mentioned steps:
1. Connect the device with Zune and click the “Update” link. This will start looking for the updates.
2. After 5-8 secs, just disconnect your PC from the internet and wait till the time it shows you a confirmation that an update is available.
3. Once the update version availability pops up in the screen, reconnect your PC with the internet and click “Update” to get the cumulative update.

ObserverPh, 22 Jan 2013On the maps thing, You're stating that Gmaps has more details. .then why is it so that MOST of... moreThere you are wrong again. That's because there are NO other mapping system better than Nokia map for WP platform! Keyword: WP Users. Not other platforms users. Google Maps now is not even working well on the crappy IE10 mobile browser. Bing maps? Is just as cheesy as Nokia maps, or even worse than Nokia maps I would say. Especially when comes to other countries beside the US.
Believe it or not, I having a Lumia 820 as my backup phone. My day to day preferred phone is still GS3. Do you want proof that Nokia maps is really much lousy as compared to Google Map for my neighborhood? I can easily provide screen shots from both phones.
LoveAndroid, 22 Jan 2013If you really want to know. YES! And I do not see the big deal of the titles. So, your point being? Then you should also know why they have the Xbox title. . :)
LoveAndroid, 22 Jan 2013You are so shallow.... Do you think Google will not implement offline mode for maps too? Is it... moreOn the maps thing, You're stating that Gmaps has more details. .then why is it so that MOST of Wp users prefer Nokia maps? I'm still in doubt that you own a Wp device. .

ObserverPh, 22 Jan 2013Most wanted?? Even WeChat on Wp has more Dl on the store. .and yet, its the developers problem... more"Even WeChat on Wp..." Dude. On the WP only, yes, it has the most download. But not on other platforms. There is no way it can break the user based as compared to Whatsapp. I dunno what you have been smoking. But face the facts, Whatsapp is screwing up on Windoze Phone platform. Don't tell me that after the app works better after the portico update. Because portico update is to update the OS for filling in the gaps like keeping Wifi on during the phone sleeps, etc. And I have already been enjoying all these missing features on Android for so long. The update is not the app. I really have no idea where you get this idea from.
LoveAndroid, 22 Jan 2013Well, you can't deny that Whatsapp is the most wanted app on smart phones nowadays. Do you not... moreMost wanted?? Even WeChat on Wp has more Dl on the store. .and yet, its the developers problem to fix those issues. Oh btw, as ive read so far in the comments, after portico update the app works better now.
ObserverPh, 22 Jan 2013Then that is your view too. . Even Assassins creed is not made by MS. . Yet it carries the Xbo... moreSo your point being? What's the big deal about XBox games? You have not answer to that question, only repeating the facts that I pointed out!
