    Typical I'd have a bloody power cut just after it turned up!

    I must say the more reviews I read about the Ativ S, the more impressive I find it. Unless style or OEM apps are very important to a buyer, this is probably the best Windows Phone 8 device available.

    Style and OEM apps are what is drawing me to the 920. As much as I like the design of the Ativ S... Gah!

    It's the fucking Camera for the Lumia 920 that has me hooked.

    I'm a tech whore.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    Also, Three confirmed they'll be getting the 920 soon.

    Just found a 920 on pay as you go for 330, thought it was a good price so reserved it. But I'm concerned as I'm on Three and the guy on the phone said it simple will not work in the phone - can you unlock these (never done it before) and is it risky and expensive?

    There! Had to phone a few stores before one had in stock.

    You might as well wait for January when it will be available on most networks. Unlocking this phone is too expensive at the moment.

    Too expensive? Isn't this like 500 normally

    I didn't say it was expensive, I said unlocking it was.

    Yeah that's what I'm referring to. How much do you mean when you say too expensive? (Never unlocked a phone before).

    Depends on the phone, I think it's about 40-50 for the 920 from what I read here and there.

    I wanted to get Risk but it's still not patched for WP8. I might have about 3 games still waiting for a patch, they're taking their slow time.

    I'm missing Tentacles, the Harvest, Fable Coin Golf and a few others. Crimson Dragon was the only one I was particularly fussed about though, as it hasn't been out all that long.

    I'm starting to wonder when the new games are going to appear.

    I'm hopeful for Skulls of the Shogun. If it works as advertised it should be amazing.

    UK/London Bus Checker are out for WP if you're a bus user. There already were alternatives on the marketplace but anyone who used iOS/Android will tell you this is one is the real deal.

    Picked up an Ativ S yesterday for just under 400. It's beautiful! Whilst I may not have the Nokia OEM apps, it has enough features to make up any gap.

    Pictures and a mini review would be great :D
    My choice was gonna be either that or the 920, at the end I guess it's the Pureview camera that convinced me.

    Supposedly the Ativ S comes already updated, can you check that if you have time please? Two ways to verify that would be a) the option to keep wifi alive in settings b) the option to reject a phone call with sms.

    Look at the time, why am I up? My tiles stopped being live a week ago so tonight I decided to go for a hard reset... and my phone bricked! Trying to resurrect it now :(

    Quick question.

    Friend of mine got herself a Lumia 820. She's trying to buy some music but it's telling her she needs to wait until 27/1/13.
    I've tried google but can't seem to find anyone with the same problem or indeed the problem itself.

    Anyone have any idea what's up with that?

    I'm assuming she has a WLID? What's the specific error? I've had a couple of issues with media usage rights on Xbox Music, but in the end they were both down to the time/date being wrong, and everything magically worked after I set both, so it's worth checking that.

    @Peew971 :( Any luck with your phone?

    Ok, I'll see if that's the issue. If not, I'll just have to pop round in the week and sort it when it's in my hands rather than asking what's happening over the phone.

    Cheers fella.

    Yes thanks, there's a thread on WPC on how to unbrick your 920. Had to reflash the whole firmware and went to bed at 5am that night but at least now there's a proper backup on WP and I only lost some game saves. Seeing the phone reinstalling all the apps on its own was just great :)

    @Folant No worries mate, hope it works - Microsoft's servers seem to throw a bit of a fit if the date/time are wrong, and the phone won't let you sync MS accounts and use the store. I factory reset my 920 the day after I got it, as when I did first boot, it went straight to the start screen (rather than running first setup). When I then set it up, I somehow neglected to set the date/time and my MS account wouldn't work. I threw a bit of a wobbly before remembering that I had set up a store account for my mum's HTC Mozart a few months previous and had a similar issue.

    I remembered doing a web search for that specific error and found a few MS support threads where the users had figured it out. Even if the date/time seems fine on your friend's device, turn off "set automatically" under date/time and set both manually. Leave the auto set slider OFF. If it's the same issue, that should resolve it, but I can't be sure there's not something else going on - it seems a bit weird she's being told to wait til 27/1. Does she have an Xbox Music sub or trial perhaps?

    @Peew971 Glad to hear it's sorted - I had one of those five am, shouting at the phone nights when I had the above issue, but that was down to my idiocy ;)
