Nokia says it's aware of problems coming from 1308 update; update is halted and a fix is coming
coming soon. For Nokia Lumia 920 owners who used to be so content with the 4G connectivity on their phones, they now have to be reminded of the OG Apple iPhone during the days when the iconic smartphone ran on EDGE.
Thankfully for those with the crippled Windows Phone 8 flagship model, the powers that be are aware of the problem which is the most important step. Now, it is just a matter of hoping that the next update to repair the problem comes soon and doesn't leave another problem in its wake. More than 70% of those Nokia Lumia 920 owners polled by Windows Phone Central were experiencing these connectivity problems following the 1308 update, so the problem is obviously widespread enough to get Nokia's best men on the job.

That's just how Nokia does business. It's finished when it's right not when it's released. Rest assured Lumia 920 owners, Nokia has got your back

Don't trust Windows Phone 8 cannot be upgrade to Windows Phone 10 OS. Nokia picked the wrong OS for their phones, Android is better.

No thanks. I don't need Windows Phone 10 in my L820. I'll buy a new one by the time wp10 will be released.
But hey, how do you know anything about wp10 at all? Any rumors? How are you even so sure it will be named "windows phone 10"? Any links to back you up?

I have already hacked your personal info on your Android phone, and sold your credit card number to Russian mobsters. Thanks for using Android, and making it much easier for my black hat comrades to compromise your digital security...have a nice day!
Oh, were you saying something about WP8 being the wrong choice of OS?

It's not android's fault, but the developers' & the users' (and Google's too for not filtering all apps).
Yeah, your credit card number can be stolen too in Windows PC if you install unknown softwares. Remember how much viruses are in Windows PC? hundred thousands. That's what happens if an OS becoming the most popular, many hackers & virus makers will do criminal things on the most famous OS.

I think wp8 is more unsecure like windows in pc

Windows Phone 10? Probably after 4 years you will see it. Windows Blue is only Windows 8.1 by the way, WP10 is a long way to go. Can your old android be updated from 2.2 Froyo to 4.2JB? No, right? Dont be a douchebag, go and play with the kids in a kindergarten.

My infuse 4g is on 4.2.2 from froyo.. I don't think there would be wp10..microsoft would abandon by then.. Gs2 is from 2.3 and will be going up to 4.2.2 how far can 920 go? Any guarantee?

don't they use updates on their own phones? same old nokia...tsk

That was actually quick turnaround for acknowledging their mistake. Hopefully it will be a quick fix for those who ran into the issue. My 920 is still going strong with no issues though.
9. UrbanPhantom (Posts: 904; Member since: 30 Oct 2012)
I've had no such issues either, and my 920 is fully updated. Luck of the draw I guess, but Nokia and Microsoft are quick at fixing such holes, given the intense scrutiny and pressing need to provide superior service and quality user experiences...
