Its very visible on black screen under lighting, so it must be some factory defect looks like a sticker was there at the manufacturing or something cause the lines that appear are square like from the sticker.
The quality controls on this phones looks awful.
Wondering how many phones are like that and people dont realize since on the cleaned screen you cant see them, just when you start using the screen and put some finger grease they appear.
And was just saying how lucky im that i have no problems in a previous post.
I really want to like this phone :(

I have a really big problem with my at&t L920.. I can send text messages but can't receive them. As soon as I put my SIM into my iPhone, I start receiving all of them. When I put my SIM back to the Lumia, it stops working after two hours o so! I don't know what to do and I don't want to get an iPhone. Btw, this is my third Lumia In a week.

I would suggest you call the Customer Care and tell them the issue. They will reset the SIM to the NL 920 and everything should work fine. They will ask for the SIM # at the back of your SIM card and the phone IMEI#.
You should be good to go.

Some people are reporting that their battery power is drained after just a few hours. Solutions: make sure only background apps you intend to run are actually running; close out of apps when you're not using them by pressing the back button; let the phone go through a few charging cycles; Nokia Drive running in the background is a common culprit - look out for the accompanying icon and be sure to close out of it and other apps properly.
- Disabled all background apps (I only had 4 apps running in the background)
- Disabled NFC
- Turned on Battery Saving and tried all settings
- Turned on Airplane Mode
- Restored to factory default and applied all the above (no, I did not restore my settings; I restored as if I just received it)
- Restored to factory default and not open a single app (no, I did not restore my settings; I restored as if I just received it)
I have a friend who bought his on the same day at the same store, but several hours before I did and he has two to three times more apps running in the background, roughly 6 email accounts sync (4 every 2 hours and two every 30 minutes), NFC turned on, WiFi active, Battery Saving set to "When battery is low", and was able to use his through out the day doing text, email, app browsing, Internet browsing, and games; and still maintain a long battery life. Where mine battery would be dead after 6 hours of just sitting on the desk or in my pocket not even being used with no apps running or even been started for the first time.
In the last two, 5 and 6, mean not even the Nokia apps were opened or the Microsoft store. Only text messaging was used if at all. Gmail was not hooked up either.
There is a problem with the some of the Nokia Lumia 920 phones; most likely a large, bad batch was shipped.

Does anyone else have problems with raised glass on the sides of the phone? You can clearly notice it when you press down. It flexes. On the left side, it makes a very slight pop...also happens when pushing in the center of the screen. Will be comparing it to the in store display before my 14 days are up.

I'll admit I didn't read all of this thread, so if this was already mentioned, then just add one more instance of the issue.
If I plug in my vehicles aux cable before starting music playback, music will come out of the phones speakers rather than send it to my stereo. I can simply unplug and plug the jack back in and it will switch over. It doesn't happen every time. I reply back if I find a more repeatable scenario.

I believe there's a very buggy radio firmware on the devices, and the issue is triggered when one or more radios isn't going into power save modes appropriately. It will get fixed and in the short term people just need to report the issue to @NokiaCareUS on Twitter or other means of contacting Nokia so they can get a fix issued ASAP. I believe whatever the issue is with the radios that it's also causing the Bluetooth and lockup/freezing issues as well.
I've seen this happen on MANY phones over the years... Windows Mobile and Android alike. It's aggravating, but it's fixable. :)
UPDATE: I just went over to the 8X forums and found this post complaining of the same 10% loss/hour issue that many of us have experienced. So now I'm thinking, YES-- it's software related-- BUT, it may be with Windows Phone 8 itself, not the Lumia 920 radios as I first suspected. So I'm guessing it can't hurt to tweet @WindowsPhoneSupport and voice some feedback as well.

My SO and I both got 920s; his is white and mine is red. On his device, the buttons on the side all feel solid and only travel when you give them pressure.
On mine, the volume rocker is just slightly wobbly. If I didn't have another one to compare it to, I would never have noticed. What I would have noticed, however, is that the volume rocker squeaks. Not when I give it a full press, but when I just lightly tap it. This may not sound like too big of a deal, but for some reason, the way I hold the phone has it making this high-pitched, incessant squeak all the time. I at first thought, "no big deal," but am quickly realizing an exchange is in order, as it's driving me up a wall.

I need some help. I am not sure if I did something wrong, but the wallet app on my windows phone 8 is not working.
As soon as I go into the app, i see "Updating Wallet...." on top and it just exits. I added a few cards and Paypal account everything was working well. And I decided to remove credit card info by following the details, going to certain website that is mentioned onscreen, most likely some commerce site for microsoft live.
So all now I have a wallet app with my 2 credit cards, my paypal info and some other stuff linked, but i cant use it since it keeps on exiting the app as soon as I open it.
any help would be greatly appreciated.

That said, I've not seen/heard anything like this yet, so you may also want to check https://gethelp.live.com/en-us/Pages/wp8.aspx for some help (use the Store option).

One more bug, email sync issue. When ever I open Gmail or yahoo mail apps it crash and goes back to start screen, when I check the email setting it says sync un progress. Sync status shows up for few hours. Last app I installed was Skype which I already uninstalled but issue still remain.
Can not wait for MS to release a fix.
