Update causing connectivity issues for the Nokia Lumia 920
posted by Alan F. / Mar 28, 2013, 8:56 PM
And normal it isn't. Yes, the 1308 update added a new feature called Storage Check which was designed to help empty the temporary cache files in the "other" category where native storage from the Nokia Lumia 920 and other models has been disappearing to. As we've seen recently with the Apple iPhone and the recent updates from iOS 6.1.1 to 6.1.3, sometimes correcting one problem opens the door to another. Just the other day, we explained how iOS 6.1.3, which was sent out to correct a problem with the lock screen, has apparently been the cause of a battery drain on some iPhone variants.
So now it is up to Nokia to quickly send out another update to fix this problem. After all, a smartphone without network connectivity isn't too much of a phone and is far from being smart.

Well it looks like my 920 is working well. I'm sure Nokia will have a fix very soon for those who ran into this issue. Definitely something I like about Nokia is their humility to problems and their promise to fix it and they don't come up with some "you're holding it wrong" excuse.

I updated, and have no issues. It did fix things like the auto-dim that was sometimes acting wacky. There must be some other variable that causes the connectivity issue to appear for some. Hope its corrected soon for those with the problem.

Glad I'm not the only one having this issue. My phone will cycle from No Bars, to LTE, to 4G to E to G regularly. It is especially bad in areas where there is nominal signal. In the past, I'd keep connectivity with low bars, now my phone drops to No Bars. Very annoying. I love the fact that the Storage Manager enabled me to wipe 3GB of garbage data, but the lack of connectivity is a killer. Nokia, please address.

Mine had a little different problem. After the update, I dont see any features that are part of the update - no Storage Check option, no 'Never' option under Lock screen timeout, no fix to proximity sensor. Did anybody had this issue? nokia, address it please...

For the storage check option and all those new features, you have to go to the store and download them. They should be waiting for you to download. The store will show like 8 updates available and those will be them. As for the proximity sensor, you got me on that one. It works well for mine. Shoot Nokia Care an email.

I have these network connectivity issues, but it's only in one place: my office in downtown Seattle. When I go home, everything works normally. This began the morning after I updated my phone at home, and I never had a data connectivity problem at my office before the update. AT&T opened a ticket over the weekend, then sent me an email two days later to say it was resolved. When I got to work on Monday, it wasn't resolved. They opened a new ticket yesterday, but from what I'm reading here, it looks like it's a Nokia problem and not an AT&T problem. I wonder if those of us who have lost data connectivity will get credits on our bills for the data we're paying for and not getting. I wonder why data will work fine everywhere but this one, tiny geographical spot. It works just fine once I leave my office.
