Gurushant, 18 Jun 2013Hi rizwan I think I found solution for your problems
1) "battery drains very quickly ... moreYou two are wrong.
WhatsApp and Skype don't "always" run in the background. Nothing runs in the background if the user doesn't want it to, in Windows phone.
Windows Phone has a technology called Background agent which runs every 30 minutes for 30 seconds and does some pre-defined work like updating live tile, syncing new messages in Skype, WhatsApp etc.
Skype doesn't run in the background at all. It runs this background agent once every 30 minutes to do its work. WhatsApp takes a bad approach. They emulate a music streaming server due to which it always runs in the background and eats battery. They are fixing this with WhatsApp v3.0 on Windows Phone.

1) "battery drains very quickly if use mobile even for texting."
It depends on the network you're in... If your in 3G then its normal that battery drains quickly.. Note that when you're signal is weak then avoid texting because your mobile demands more power to compensate weak signal... Try to text only when there is good signal...
2) "can't stop whatsapp, Skype , they always running in background."
Actually Whatsapp and skype are designed to run in background... In whatsapp it runs in background because if you get new message it pops out in your mobile and skype runs in background cuz if someone call you, you will be able to recieve it.. You can never stop them from running in background but there is one thing you can do to stop battery drain i.e go to settings and turn off the mobile internet.. This helps in stopping the battery drain.....Note that the whole application (whatsapp and skydrive) arent running in background only some process of it are running... dont miss understand...
3) "some kind of problem with find my phone option. it doesn't work with my Lumia 920."
Sorry about this I am not familiar with find my phone option....
4)"camera is not that much good as my old Nokia 808. which deliver very good images in Low light"
Nokia 808 and lumia 920 both are meant for different purposes though both are cameraphones... Nokia 808 has a big sensor which is capable of shooting in 38mpix mode and so the details are very high so you feel that it is very good but on contrary lumia 920 has comparatively smaller sensor but comes with optical image stabilisation and is specailly meant for low light photography and everyone knows that it is the king in low light photography... due to optical stabilisation lumia excels in video recording i.e it provides excellent video even when your hand is shaking.... What i mean to say is 808 is meant for high detail photography and lumia is meant for low light photography... you cant compare both because they are meant for different worlds.... and also consider changing the settings in your lumia it might help you....

Hi folks, I need help. I bought this fon on Friday from a shop in ghana and I am not happy at all. The fon got frozen last night at about 11pm and it is still frozen as I send this message. I have tried to put it off but no it won't go off. The screen shows "Resuming..." I will be returning this fon to the shop. Has any one experienced this?

Am using this phone past 1 month and previously i had a symbian device and being a hardcore user of symbian it difficult for me to adapt the win 8 platform .After one month i have to say i am quite happy to use the device .
The os is smooth as silk and the gorilla glass works great on the bright sunlight .Apps like city lens and offline maps will have an edge on the current smartphones.camera features and low light photos are simply awesome.
The os is different from the green robot and fruit phones which i like most it gives you an different feeling ....

Check that earphones are firmly plugged in and see that there is no loose connection in the node of the earphone where the two wires (left and right earphone) arise from the main wire of the earphone.... and also check with other earphones if the same problem persist then its the problem with your phone. Take it to nokia care center...

[deleted post]I don't own any of the device u mentioned but certainly my dad owns lumia 920 and most of the time lumia 920 will be with me so I think I can help you with your problem...
1) Considering your previous mobiles i strongly recommend you lumia 920 nor 720 or 620 or 820..the reason why i think it is better are:
a) It is beautifully carved... Feels richness in your palm when your holding it.... Gives a solid feel which other mobiles can never be able to give....
b) It's display is simply THE BEST!!! it has got PureMotion HD+ in addition to that Nokia's proprietary ClearBlack technology definitely adds cherry to the top of the cake... You can easily show off its display capabilities to others also the colours looks natural in day light the sunlight legibility is very good....
c)and still there are many many good features which I cant mention it here..
2) I don't know about 720 but lumia 920 hangs very very rarely say once in about 2-3 months and that too if u have lots of apps and games... otherwise it wont...
3) 512mb is not enough so 920 fits...
a) Its super duper fluid UI
b) Most of the good and trending apps are available*
c) Has good security features comparatively
d) Doesn't lag..
e) Good for businees use..
a) Comparitively less apps
b) UI is not as much costumizable as android
c) No fm radio support (Hope Amber update gets back the FM support)
Finally i recommend you for lumia 920.... Good luck bro..
