The only Google I still use is street view, YouTube and Gmail forwarded to Outlook.com

For YouTube, I don't even bother with the app. I just use my.YouTube.com. Simple and easy. What's the...

Apple is offering three versions of each model and the pricing isn't terrible for the upgrades.

Paul, these are CONTRACT prices. Lumias are those prices for an outright contractless...

For those outside the US, if Xbox music died tomorrow very few would care when Nokia MixRadio is available, free. Plus it is a lot less US-centric in it's catalogue.

Xbox Music seems to be...

Speaking of OneNote, I decided to try to understand it after Paul & Mary-Joe's lavish praises on WW. Once I worked out the difference between a section and a page, it is just so wonderful! And...

I must admit that I prefer a software button for photos - touching the screen keeps the phone so much steadier and helps avoid shake blur IMHO. I have the Lumia 820.

Ouch! $14 for a $2 cable. $3 with delivery from China if you can wait the month it takes.

Suggest you read the whole article.

I'm using Here to plan and my 820 to navigate a 12,000 km (7,500 m) eastern & central Europe trip later this year. I have set up a "collection" for each day, including way points. By using the...

Don't forget that some enterprise licences also include access to the Home User Program (HUP). If your employer has this (ask them!) you may be able to get a single copy of Office 365, the full...

Maybe the current SIM is 3G or 3.5G (HSDPA) and not LTE? In which case "LTE in a few months" would be correct. Just a thought and parsing the various statements.

I wish the Mini would have a choice of RT or not RT. I want a mini for travelling, synching photos with my camera to onedrive & facebook, map & research whilst away, but itunes syncing is...

If they do an 8" Surface "Pro" ie not RT, I'll buy one immediately. Why? It is basically a touchscreen RT but with the option to move photos from my camera, and equally important (this is the deal...

Whilst there are many improvements, as usual Microsoft has taken two steps forward and one back with this update. Ok that's harsh, say 4 forward. But some features have gone backwards:

Gday Paul. Now that it is 2 years down the track, I wonder what your thoughts are regarding MCE and/or DVD. I believe MS was right in removing MCE, although it should've been an add-on to any...

Paul, have you considered running android apps via bluestacks? I know you've talked about it on WW but I don't recall you ever mentioning actually using it.

I use it on my desktop,...

Any news when WP8 version will offer file transfers? I'm sure the Android version had this 2yrs ago :(

Friday, February 14, 2014 - 8:44am

Don't blame Microsoft, blame your carrier, and blame yourself for, a carrier-issued phone.

Avoid this in future by buying the phone directly - without the carrier software on it, which is...

Almost perfect. Can't transfer files eg pics etc. More useful than video calls on a mobile considering the bandwidth for most mobile users.

App updates seem to have frozen recently. Used to get them every coupla days, been almost a fortnight now and none. Yet when I manually search, there they are.

Anyone else with similar...

Paul, I'm an idiot. I just repeated what you wrote! Feel free to laugh at my stupidity and not publish it!

Sorry :(

Serves me right for reading whilst watching podcasts! The male...

Apologies if someone already said this, but if you want everything stored locally as well as SkyDrive (eg on a PC), right-click all the folders under SkyDrive and choose "make available offline)....

Thursday, September 5, 2013 - 6:05pm

Good. But still waiting for the ability to send/receive files via Skype.

I have the 820 in Australia. Bought it outright, not via a carrier, and have had Amber for almost a fortnight.

Buy outright and get updates as soon as Microsoft /Nokia release them, without all the network gunk.

Its the Signature Series for your phone!

I got the Lumia 820 for under $300....

Why doesn't MS change the error message to say:

"Google has blocked access to this official YouTube app. Please use m.youtube.com as a temporary workaround. We continue to liase with with...

Google IS evil. They hide behind their marketing façade pretending to only do good, a bit like Robert Mugabe.

I'll happily use their bandwidth to watch YouTube on devices that avoid their...

Avoid the network delays - buy the phone outright. I got the Lumia 820 for $310 delivered incl 10% GST, and updates come directly from Microsoft / Nokia.

Saturday, May 4, 2013 - 6:51am

Isn't that effectively the 820? ie a 920 with swappable battery and expandable memory? Same chip, same RAM as the 920.

Thursday, February 28, 2013 - 9:50pm

If I buy outright, will I avoid the network upgrade delays? How are they delivered in that case?
