Is there a sim card change notification?
I don't need to wipe my Android phone save say the mSD as I can encrypt it or block it
So if phone lock is off all it take is the insertion of a new sim card
WP8 is a lot better than how it started which I support, not the blind "criticise not" attitude you have adopted
So less name calling ME and provide a name of the so called file manager
Impart some knowledge if you have it, and note that GSMARENA themselves say NO System wide manager on page one!

Sunil Edwin, 22 Apr 2014Guys,
1. I wish that the most important option in the dialer ie. to access the phone contacts... moreWP is still playing catch up catch up with Android and catch up with Symbian
The Lumia Black was a very good upgrade esp closing down apps no more back button.
IMO where attention is needed some URGENTLY some less but WP could learn a lesson from incorparating aspect of Android, I say this as a Nokia (Symbian) to Android guy back to NOKIA (WP8)
First phone security or lack of it
(all there is is phone lock sim lock and find my phone)
I feel naked as there is NO ability to shut the phone down remotely or be notified of a sim card change
NO third party anti theft
There is NO file manager, in house or paid.
Any file on my SGS II, I know the size the date created the location, I can copy a file from phone to mSD and vice versa. FILE MANAGER
ALL Images photos on WP phone unless USB connected I only know the month from camer roll it was taken
(FILE MANAGER only via USB /PC )
Image quality prior to WP you could select the resolution up to the phone maximum on a Nokia phone.
The 1020 can ONLY takes 41MP images ONE SETTING MAX
Sim contacts promoted to FULL phone contacts WHY ?
The sim card is NOT readable by the phone. choice removed
NOW included in the update Call length,previouslu I know I made a call until itemised arrives.
Still images can be sent to a WP phone by bluetooth and are SAVED on phone
MOVING images / video can be sent to a WP phone by bluetooth but are NOT saved so viewed once, which as there is NO file manager I thought I was going nuts / or phone faulty phone.
As WP hve never had adobe flash, I can't wait for this as even the embedded video in this article can't be viewed on this phone
Richer app catalog is an understatement
Experiance has shown that you read the APP review first and then download, even then it can turn out to be dire
IMO some of the apps shpuld not even be listed in the catalogue
Suresh.wellfare, 23 Apr 2014hi buddy, Aerize Explorer is recent fil manager for WP 8.1 try that Does aerize manager work well with phone memory, I use 920...
WP8.1 is really a refreshing, long-awaited update that delivers on it's promise.
I don't know why so many fanboys are upset that it's "playing catchup". Its not a question of what features it has but what you need.
I have a Lumia (WP8.1), an old android (ICS) and an iPad and all three have their own uses for me.

I can assure you that my HTC One has no bugs at all, maybe you're referring to that 5 years old Blu phone running the very first version of Android. And before you say WP has super fast devices, try using whatsapp on that Lumia 610.

I understand you need to download an App to be able to manage files, but is there any other 'basic function'?

You cant even compare a HTC One M8 or S5 to a High end Lumia (except in the camera department, where Nokia has been doing a great job since the Symbian years). WP just lacks so many features, apps... No wonder Nokia made the Nokia X
IMO, WP is the only OS that is still playing catch-up, it missed the train. I remember when WP7 came out. It lacked even basic features such as Bluetooth share but WP lovers would argue that it's the best OS. WP8.1 may have all those "shiny" features but they're definetly not new to us.
I currently use windows phone 8.1 preview.. Its awesome. Now we have all the basic functionality. Plus smooth and secure. Now, the only things needed is developers to develop apps for WIndowsphone ecosystem.
Soon will change the market with windows OS,only need to improve on Apps. When compare to body and design more better than Samsung.Expecting soon in the market for Lumia-630 Dual sim.
