I got the GDR2 update for my international unbranded 8X in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia this morning & I'm still discovering things here & there , here's what I found so far :
- FM Radio , haven't tried...
Ouch !!!! Sorry dude !
Thank you for the heads up , I was planning on using a Vacuum cleaner to do it :\
I hope you can get it fixed .
Well Said !!!!
Like you , I always liked WP7 & I was about to jump ship back then & I was going to buy an OG Atrix or an HD7 , I couldn't find an HD7 anywhere at all at the time , so I went with...
It look a lot like the NASCAR version of it , That's why I was asking :) The black one behind it is clearly a NASCAR version of the Toyota Camry ...
Right , I totally forgot about Google Listen ! I thought you were talking about a built in app like the Music App in iOS ! ... my bad !
I tried downloading it a couple of time when I was on Android...

You used a US address for the billing address with a UAE PayPal account info ?
Thanks ! :)
- 02-28-2013, 12:52 PM
No problem ! Agreed , it sucks ! my brother is stuck with that !
- 02-28-2013, 12:47 PM
If I can Disable it , then why not ! If not , then Thank You But No Thank you !
I had that in my old Nokia E75 & it drove me nuts !
Damn straight !!! My 8X gets **** done !!!
I Go By The Name IceDree & This Is MY Windows Phone !
Spot on !!!!
I have a 1GB worth of apps in my 8X , but I only use Mehdoh , EverNote & the Music player on daily basis !
I love the form factor & the design of my 8X , Its the sweet spot for me coming from a Motorola Atrix (4") , Its compact , close to it in dimensions , yet have a bigger screen , but narrow enough for...

That makes a lot of sense & I agree with you !
As you said , when you pick a color , you know it will work out with everything ! while being elegant & professional at the same time .

Well said man !
Regarding updating WP7 to WP8 ,
from my understanding , there's some sort of a new hardware related encryption in WP8 , that can not be implemented in current WP7 devices .
Nice , I didn't know the Grey would be so damn sexy you put the phone in it . I didn't like it that much on their website (Picture of the case only)
Too bad , the Yellow one is exclusive to...
I like the HTC Double Shot case a lot ! , I'm waiting & hoping HTC would make Yellow one ! or I might eventually buy the blue one & wrap it in a black Carbon Fiber film (Not sure if it work though) !...
They said the same thing about Symbian !
Well , I just came to Windows Phone !
but if i had to pick , it will iOS
"I just left Android & I ain't going back !!!!!"
Even though the Xperia Z is super sexy !
Some apps (like mehdoh) have an individual rotation lock , check the settings of the apps you use , you might find one
Thank you , I have been wondering about that as well :)
Cheese ? lol
Okay , how did you get it out of the grill ? I have the same problem (Yes , believe it or not) I got cheese stuck in the grill of the rear speaker !!! I have no idea how it got there...

Yea , I saw them in the Store , but I didn't bother because they are limited to few countries (Saudi Arabia is not included) , the transit app can be handy , but I don't use public transport .
- 02-27-2013, 06:23 PM
a Day sounds about right !
My 8X lasts about day ! I listen to music , check Twitter a lot & do some browsing & gaming during the day (Over both Wi-Fi & 3G), plus my university have a poor network...
BTW , Is that the new Chevrolet SS ?
Well , Its your opinion & I appreciate that you took the time & effort to test it probably , see if it fits your need & Then Write a review about it !
As you said , To each have his\her opinion &...
- 02-27-2013, 05:35 PM
Mine is leveled on all corners ! Thank god !
anyway I just put a case on it ! & I'm hoping HTC makes a LimeLight Yellow case !
Glad they gave you a new one !
- 02-27-2013, 05:34 PM
Funny , Thats how the 920 felt to me ! (More like a toy though)
- 02-27-2013, 05:31 PM
For someone who **** talks about HTC I'm surprised you bought an 8X , but I read your reason blow !
Funny , You make it sound like Samsung is the king of build quality (Since they are the one ruling...
What He Said !
I had the same problem at first , when I used my old Sony Vivaz Pro Headphones , I used my old iPod headphones & the ones came with it & both of them worked fine !
I also had the...
Try doing a Factory reset & then when it asks you for the account ID enter yours . I hope that works

What does a ChromeBook do exactly ? from my understanding Its Web Browser & nothing else ! I haven't used or seen one !
- 02-27-2013, 05:06 PM
Its not free on Windows Phone (The Music Pass) ! You only get a 30-DAYS FREE TRAIL , After that you have to pay a monthly\yearly subscription !
from my understanding is when they (OEMs) license Microsoft's OS , they also pay royalties for Microsoft's patents that covers WP & the Office , so they get a license for it & they don't get...
The Desktop app is for Windows Phone 8 only as lak611 (Laura) said ! If you have a WP8 device , they could be conflicting with each other ! I had that problem with Motorola phones , I installed the...

The Arabic keyboard on WP8 is great , it also have prediction & everything ! Frankly I haven't typed on an Arabic Keyboard this good before !
I write in English most of the time , but when I switch...

I think the reason BB10 is looked at like revolutionary step from BB OS 7 with a lot of features , because OS 7.0 didn't really have anything comparable to iOS & Android ! OS 7 was built on top of...

I saw the the same thing my with brother ! Be bought a Curve 8900 (Software wasn't upgradable to the next version) & then a Torch 9800 (Same thing) & then a Bold (9900) & now a Z10

Android also doesn't have a native podcast support ! As far as i know iOS is the only one that have it !
As far as i know Podcasts were part of the Zune desktop software & with Zune gone , they are...
Don't worry about that guys ! Worrying about future updates ruins the experience .
Use your phone for what it is & what it can do RIGHT NOW ! & not for what it MIGHT do ! Something I learned from...
Ohh my bad , My 8X gave two options "Precede" & "Dismiss" , So I thought they are all the same , You know Same experience & all ! my bad !
I was in your same situation a couple of years ago ,...
I don't think so , unlike the PS3 (Standard BlueTooth connection) The Xbox uses a proprietary wireless signal , that's why you need a special USB receiver to use it on a PC .
Time would do ! just like Symbian before it !
- 02-27-2013, 11:51 AM
I keep switching between the Cobalt , Lime & Yellow , So I'm good , but I would love to have an option for an RBG\Hex picker !
- 02-27-2013, 11:42 AM
Yea , The Double-Wide Tile clock is exclusive to HTC , its actually an App called HTC & When you Pin it , it shows up as the clock .
HTC got a thing for clocks & Weather , Windows Mobile , Android...

Im using the US Store from Saudi Arabia (Hi , We are neighbors) , my xbox is also set to the US .

Just a heads up , You can Change your region in the Xbox ONCE every 3 months !

The G8 GXP is one bad *** car ! We had the Chevy Lumina here instead :\

To be honest , My Xoom is in a perfect condition ! But I would love to win a Windows 8 RT tablet ! It would make an awesome gift for my young brother who's going to Med. School next year & frankly...

I also found those :
• Astronomy lock screen (it shows the picture of the day) .
• Lock screen Text (it shows your text) .
Those don't show anything beside their logo in their Double-Wide Tiles...
They went a long way , they improved a lot ! They are more stable now !
They don't crash ALL the time , but enough to make them noticeable .
- 02-25-2013, 04:42 PM
MPATool can also get the Album Arts for you ! but I'm not sure how it works with Nokia Music !
You said , You used to have an iPhone, If you still use iTunes, there's an option to make it get...
I agree , Tiles are beautiful !
Don't worry about it , Android might imitate the tiles & their functionality ... but it won't last ! they will start crashing at some point ! like all widgets !...
Whats app works fine with me (HTC 8X), I don't use other chat apps though, I'm not a chatty person !
My 8X came preloaded with Portico , but I received an HTC firmware update & When I hit update , a Pop-Up Warning came up , You know the usual Data charges apply , use Wi-Fi .... Are You sure you want...

isn't the translation done by Bing Translate ? The app or the Camera Lens ?
I'm new to Windows Phone , but last week I translated a Chinese text via Bing Translate , I just opened Bing Translate ,...
Just ignore them !
People used to say the same about both the iPhone & the Android Phones ... from a personal experience !
I was an iOS early adaptor , 1st Gen iPod touch (iPhone OS 1.2) , everyone...
Also , Regarding the exclusive apps thing , if they are gonna effect your decision :
Look up the Nokia exclusive apps in whatever platform you are using , See if you need them , or you can live...
Play with both of them & see which one you like & fits your needs more !
- Do You need an SD card ? or can settle on 16GB (around 14GB) ?
- Do You Need a Removable Battery ? or Not ?
I'm not sure its a good idea to bring a US specific phone like the 810 (T-Mobile) or 822 (Verizon) to india , The different Radios might be inconvenient ! I have a friend brought a T-Mobile SideKick...
A US Account !
I have an 8X with a US account (I used the same account as my Xbox 360) in Saudi Arabia , I get all the US only stuff !
I sill use iTunes for Podcasts though , Force of hobbit .
- 02-25-2013, 01:43 PM
My 8X (Came with Portico) used to be like this , I did the UnPin >> Restart via Buttons Camo. >> RePin & its working fine now !
Yes , You can save more than one number per contact . My own contact have 4 mobile numbers in it !
BUT the maximum limit for Emails you can add is 3 ! if you add more than 3 Emails to a contact in...

Update : Mehdoh's Double-Wide Tile only says you have a new mention , it doesn't show what is it . (Check link for a screenshot)
- 02-25-2013, 12:33 PM
Same here , MPAtool is a life savor !
That Gray background is ugly
- 02-25-2013, 10:12 AM
Mehdoh & WhatsApp have a Double-Wide Tiles , but I'm not sure it shows anything other than the logo in the middle .
Also , HTC Double-Wide Tile is beautiful , i like it a lot !
- 02-25-2013, 10:06 AM
Sticky: i second that !
i second that !
- 02-24-2013, 06:19 AM
I understand your point of view regarding the Exclusive apps thing . But it doesn't really bother me though !
To be fair , I'm new to the Windows Phone platform & so far so good , I didn't need any...
I got the notification for an "Update" (It didn't Specify what kind of an update) , I didn't update it yet ... I don't like updating without reading about it first .
Unbranded 8X In Saudi Arabia ....
Broken as in Not working\responding ? or as in Physically Broken (i.e. button came out of the phone)
Im not sure if this helps , but I had the same issue in my Motorola Atrix a few months ago ,...
I tried it last night , out of around 500 only 2 songs were missing an album art (Molossus by Hans Zimmer from Batman Begins & Blue Magic by Jay-Z from American Gangster)
Also , WavingRed Thank...

Rotation lock would be cool , but I can live without it ... a bit inconvenient , but "Still ... It Could've Been Worse"
same here, I moved to WP last week & I love it ... , especially the music features (My 8X is my media player).
Also like you , I do like to have control how certain things are displayed :/
As WavingReds said ,
I was gonna write Steps 1 , It missed up a couple of my albums (Miami Vice OST & Metal Gear Solid 1 OST) , but I noticed it before It alters the rest of my music & Disabled it ....
They have to earn my trust first in order to loyal to a brand
Personally, I prefer Motorola when it comes to phones , my experiences with Motorola phones was & still great , even before Android came...
Same here, I'm also planning to get an 8X .
Its always good to read about people's experiences with a device ... whether its good or bad, but if all I find is people having problems with it, I may...
- 11-12-2012, 05:01 PM
Yep, but that in the US only ... as far as I know, but here in Saudi Arabia, the 8X is 106 dollars cheaper than the Lumia 920 & according to a nokia rep, the lumia won't be available until next month
I've been wondering about that too, is it possible to connect it to a car's audio system via USB & get audio out of it , instead of AUX ?
- 11-10-2012, 03:54 PM
Thank you for confirmation mate :)
- 11-10-2012, 03:51 PM
That's the same amount of free space i'd in the 16GB I bought for my Xoom (not any more ;) lol) , looks like Microsoft made the oems put a separate chip for the OS ... like what they...
- 11-10-2012, 11:42 AM
Its a manner of a personal preferences fellas
Both the 8X & the Lumia 920 are great phones & you guys should pick whatever you like more, fits your need & works out for you !! Whether it was Htc or...
- 11-10-2012, 10:39 AM
Before you decide, check em again, but check the brightness on the 8X first, a few months ago I played with a Motorola RAZR at a store, everyone kept complaining on how dim the screen, only to find...
- 11-10-2012, 10:33 AM
Also the HTC ReZound had a 720p screen, I think it came out about 5 months before the One X
- 11-10-2012, 10:27 AM
How much Free storage of the 16GB you get out of the box ? I got almost 12GB of my Atrix's 16GB
- 09-25-2012, 07:38 PM
if this is true, maybe... just maybe Nokia should take a look at the HTC HD7 Before they do anything reckless!
Put an HD7 Next to the Lumia 820 & take a good look at both, then flip em over &...
