....@Gunmast...I have to say you can have the phone on complete silent..
settings>ringtones+sound>vibrate (slide to OFF)..
Again, the ringtone volume depends on the system loudness
(If the music player is at 2/30, the ringtone will be low...you can toggle the settings and find a balance and how to have your windows phone in your style.
Finally, the phone has an amazing UI fluidity. This of course is at a cost of battery life. I want to believe that this phone fits well with those with PC already so that the phone acts as a back up of some tasks on the move but if the phone is bought to replace play station of laptop or home theatre music system, then I am afraid the charge will be on your neck.....owing to the fact that the battery in non-removable there is a lot of planning to be done.
I wish you a Luminary day>>> I'm in a meeting..ppsssst!!
willboyce, 22 Mar 2013Nope. Fm radio i think was originally to come in summer are just after. Possibly with blue
It looks like the FM radio hardware is embedded into all WP8 phones but the WP8 operating system lacks the drivers and app to make it work, which is quite strange in my oppinion. It is expected to come with next update of WP8, but no ETA yet.
For more info, this is explained in this analisis Nokia Lumia 920: http://www.teknofilo.com/nokia-920-analisis-y-prueba-a-fondo/ (sorry it is in Spanish but you can google translate the part where they talk about 'radio FM')
Having had a Nokia lumia 920 for a week now, I can say it is a very underestimated phone and as for wp8 it is much better. Than android. Windows have really put alot of thought and effort into this. The reason wp8 is not taking off as well as it should is probably down to the bad press of the desktop version. As a smart phone software this is awesome way better than android. The 920 does lack a couple of things and ppl say it doesn't give notifications in the taskbar but the live tiles give you that information, so I cant understand what ppl are moaning about there. The only bad thing so far i can find is the 1. You cant take the ringtone off vibration. If its on silent it can only be on vibrate, id prefer it to be silent. 2. The battery is poor I have to charge it up after around 8 jrs to make sure it gets me through the day. Other than than a great phone and software. All the apps i used on android are available on wp8. And its the quantity that matters but quality and with the apps this is shown.
Nokia Lumia is a great phone. Waiting for the Nokia EOS too. Would be a great phone, with an amazing Pureview camera with a sleek design.
I use to use Nokia all the time but last years I used SG SII. Agin I tried this phone Nokia Lumia 920. Very happy with this phone. Beautiful design and beautiful Windows Phone 8 is stunning. I love this phone. Working very well. I'm proud to say that I am with Nokia again.
Nokia lumia 920 is a very interesting phone. Best windows phone ever! However as a windows and android user. Windows needs more apps. My samsung galaxy note 2 has a very very good battery life where as nokia lumia 920 battery is really poor. And the camera on lumia is good but I expected much better than note 2. End of the day lumia 920 was a good phone ans nokia made a good attempt on innovation. However they need to step up more like samsung. Nokia has to kill sony and htc to compete with samsung and apple.

Windows Phone 8 devices will be upgradeable to the next edition of Windows Phone, however, unlike Windows Phone 7.x devices which were not upgradeable to Windows Phone 8.

No wonder u thinking it's discontinued, it's called windows PHONE 8, and windows PHONE isn't being discontinued, 7.8 and 8 getting discontinued SUPPORT till September and July respectively, windows phone 9 will replace windows PHONE 8, like ice cream sandwich would replace gingerbread. I think your confusion stems from 7 being obsolete and 8 being entirely new. 8 to 9 is said to be an os update like Any other on wp8 devices.

Smarty, 21 Mar 2013Why do you feel happy about the lost of E7 ???...Hi Luminary...!
I lost it (E7) but it had given me a lot of problems (local nokia care guy messed it up by trying heroics he was not sure about)...althought I didn't have a lot of patience with it (software hitch). I had bought it for camera beauty but with Lumia 920...camera is done!
