Amber update hits AT&T's Nokia Lumia 820 and Nokia Lumia 920
The Amber update brings the glance screen which gives you an always-on clock, notifications and more at a...glance! See how that works out? The Amber update, which is for Nokia Lumia models only, also adds a number of new features to the camera including Action Shot. This lets you track the entire sequence of something in motion and have it come out on one picture.
Accompanying the Amber update is the GDR2 update from Microsoft and this supports the FM radio feature on the platform along with Data Sense. The latter, at one time an exclusive to Verizon, allows users to track their data usage over the course of a month, so that the phone's owner can be warned of overages. Data Sense also shows which applications are consuming the most data over the course of a month.
Expected to start rolling out next month is the GDR3 update which will allow Windows Phone to support larger screens and quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. This update will debut on the 6 inch Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet, expected to be unveiled on October 22nd. Nokia phones will also receive the Bittersweet shimmer update along with GDR3. This will allow Nokia Lumia models to lock in a portrait or landscape orientation, and "X" out apps to close them among other new features.

How are you liking the Note 3 compared to your WP? Just wondering.

I really miss the aesthetics of wp8 and tried to go back to android with the n4 early this year and hated it. I'm finding with the note 3 that this is something completely different. I've had it a week and have struggled with so many options whether it be the spen or the OS but I'm really starting to enjoy it. The screen is amazing, pictures are just okay ( my 1020 was a lot more clear and detailed). I'm really trying to wrap my head around touch wiz.

Did you try doing a hard reset? Also let it die completely, then put it back to charge, should be back to normal

Yes sir I sure did. Frustrating to say the least. Att is sending me a new one (Not refurbished).

Samsung needs to clean touch wiz, it has quite a few anoyances But its still fairly nice, I just find the note 3 way too big, so I think I'll settle with the nexus 5, but honestly android has improved quite a bit during the past months

Man that sucks! Have you checked forums for an easy fix? Or you gonna have to take it to the company?

If nothing else, it has a one-year warranty.

They are replacing it because of the issues. Same thing happened with one of the 920 I had when I did a factory reset.
