    Re: News - Nokia begins rolling out Lumia Black software update

    The article states it's available in the UK for the 925 and 1020, not sure why the subtitle of the newsbit suggests otherwise. (Unless Hexus presume hexites wouldn't have the high tech models for some reason??)

    Re: News - Nokia begins rolling out Lumia Black software update

    Handy that the update is available on the high-end handsets, but Nokia's own availability checker seems to suggest that a lot of people will be left waiting for carrier approval: http://www.nokia.com/global/support/...ity-in-europe/



    Judging by recent Windows Phone usage statistics, I think it's fair to say that most users probably can't get the Lumia Black update just yet.

    I got my update about 2 weeks ago, I think. I have a Lumia 1020.

    Yes, but the quote was to Hexus forum readers saying we can't get it yet. We're not the average user (Don't worry - it's not a big thing - I can't get it for my Nokia 6610i - Yes, I rock a 10yr old phone - twas high tech for the time though )

    Got it on my 925 last night, but haven't figured out how to create groups on the Start screen - any ideas?
    One can never stop saying Thank You

    Contacts?

    Don't use an App Folder.

    You've been able to create groups ie (Family, Work, Cycling Club) of your contacts since the begining iirc.

    Once you've created the group, pin it to the start.

    This allows you to quickly get to an individual, but also groups all the messages and communications for those people too.

    Re: News - Nokia begins rolling out Lumia Black software update

    I don't have this update yet on my lowly Lumia 620! To be honest, I love the phone, the only complaints I have is the fact I have to zoom in a bit to get the resolution up on the websites and the other is the 8GB limit (in reality 4.5GB after the OS etc) for apps, that's all.

    There's a lot I haven't figured out about this phone yet. I have nearly all of the most important things for me working how I want them to and my biggest gripe is that I can't seem to create a Playlist for the music I want to listen to. I'm hoping that the 8.1 update will make that easier, as well as find a way to only use the music on my phone when I want to use the Smart DJ Mix unless I have a Wifi connection (this is probably easy, but I don't really use it so haven't been bothered to look it up).
