    No, if you want to see who is online, check the messaging app, swipe left for the online tab, this section shows people who are online.
    Also, you can hide contacts from Facebook in the people hub settings.

    WhatsApp hogging away all the battery life?
    Press the volume button and tap on the streaming icon ((.)) it takes you to whatsapp, right? This is because whatsapp uses the sound streaming service to keep itself 'alive'. This = Battery hog! Use 'Stop the Music!' app to completely stop WhatsApp from operating after you exit the app.
    Give it a try, check if the battery life improves and pop in your views!
    The app can be found -h-e-r-e-> Stop the Music! | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (भारत)

    Yup, Whatsapp is a battery hog on Lumia 920. Apparently, for whatsapp to work in the background it needs to use audio streaming API. Only trusted developers would be given the access run the apps in the background. Whatsapp has no way to work around this but to use Audio streaming... I hate to know it, but unfortunately, I need whatsapp. So sort of living with battery drain for now... Without whatsapp my battery used to last more than a day... Now half a day.

    I did another interesting test with Skype. It does work in the background, but unlike Whatsapp it uses push notifications. Skypes stores the users status online on its servers. As soon as it gets some activity for a particular user it uses the push notification to activate the Skype program on the phone. So Skype is not always connected to the server like Whatsapp. Unfortunately, it has other bug issues related to syncing the contacts which was the reason behind battery drain complaints. Interestingly, the idea of Skype's background functioning is good, but the way it is behind handled is riddled with many technical glitches like network connectivity and push notification server functionality...

    Well, bottom line, WP 8 is no way close to Symbian in multi-tasking. I was under the opinion that once NT kernel is ported it would be good at handling multi tasking... but still it is the same as WP 7.5. A little better but needs a drastic change. In fact, I'm really pissed with its fast switching. Like I open an app, minimize it and open it again, it takes about 10-20 secs depending on the app type to open it on the screen... What kind of multi-tasking is this? Common MS you can do lot better. Especially, minimizing skype and open is so annoying as it tries to establish contact with server before it even shows you anything on the screen.

    For now there is no good messenger for WP. Or I can say there is not efficient app or way to program an app to work in the background with minimal resources. Still wonder, if MS gonna come out with some API's to sort this out. Or Nokia just did a big gamble to let MS deal with all the software. As I'm still looking for half the functionality of my Symbian based phone I used 5 years ago now :( I moved away from symbian for its clunkiness and UI, but functionality wise it was amazing. I need not reduce the volume of ringer to tone down my key pad dialer to begin with :P

    Is MS getting all this I have no clue. But this not the way to build an ecosystem... Nothing is integrated and nothing works as promised. Where is the total integration with PC yet MS? Forget about instagram, atleast bring proper Skype. If MS cannot get Skype forget about bringing apps that can work in the background efficiently. End of rant... But MS seriously needs to listen. Or at least Nokia realizes to go with a different OS... If not for Nokia I wouldn't even had recommend this half baked OS to anyone... I'm just living with this agony.

    I like the WP OS for beautiful interface and Nokia hardware and apps but what you stated is ugly truth. MS need to do something quickly or Nokia should better use other platform (doesn't mean totally leaving WP)

    had the same problem. get 3g activated. if already done. go to network and manually select the operator vodafone with 3g mentioned below it. else select airtel 3g .... Vodafone is using airtel 3g.

    There is a serious issue on my lumia 920 with 3g signal, i have tried with both airtel & vodafone. for 2g signal it doesnt fluctuate but while in 3G it frequently fluctuate from 0 to 5 bar, and may be i have found that is the reason for massive battery drainage, my device last for 5 hours in 3g network with moderate use. please help. any one here facing this issue of network fluctuation in 3g network? In many forums i have found that the reception in lumia 920 is having the cause for this problem

    Had a ques for guys who have purchased the phone and aware about the Airtel 3G bundle offered...



    At the time of purchase I wasn't aware that airtel is offering free 3G for 3 months and I inserted my vodafone sim card. I was thinking of porting my number to airtel just to use the free 3G bundle offered http://discussions.i.lithium.com/i/s...miley-wink.gif lol but Im not sure if I will get the 3G bundle now as I have already used a vodafone sim on the phone http://discussions.i.lithium.com/i/s...ndifferent.gif
    Can someone please confirm if I will be able to get the bundle if I insert an airtel sim? Also no one in my family has an airtel sim sooo I cant try out...

    Also is there any other way to purchase apps from the marketplace??? being a student I don't have a credit card and my debit card wont work! Microsoft you need to add more payment options as everyone in India don't own a credit card and my dad wont give me his!!! n my wall charger died a day after purchase :| btw is this thread dead????
    yes you will get bundled offer under MNP also provided the first sim inserted in the device should of airtel

    Thanks man, will go in an hour, but i think the different colour will be charged in excess :|

    I think i went to all available shops in Bangalore, best price for now is 36.5 k, sangeeta in mantri mall seem to give another headphone (which probably sucks ***, but still )

    No problem :) Call them before going to make sure they have stock - 9886040240. Also Flipkart has a better deal than that Sangeeta place!

    Yeah, i dunno how flipkart are managing to trump dedicated mobile stores like sangeeta/univercell, price difference is 50o bucks.

    EDIT: Jus called them, They just finished their stock! :(
