Picture messages

I cant view picture messages. Some setting isnt correct. Have you any idea what is wrong?
Turn your wifi off. I have the same issue. I called nokia and they told me to send pictures with email. So you have to make a habit of remembering to turn wifi off.

White Lumia 900

When will the white one be available?
I don't think there will be a white one. It's available in the standard black, and a nice baby blue (which is gorgeous.) There's no reason for them to make a different color option at this point.

BlackBerry to Nokia

How do I put my music from my sd card on my Lumia??
Sync your BB media to your computer using BB desktop media sync. Insall Zune on your computer, and sync your Lumia with Zune. Worked like a champ for me!

Android, please...

What a waste of good hardware. Well, maybe they will get smart and sell these with Android as well at some point.

A swing and a miss from Nokia

Compared to the N800, there are too many corners cut with this supposedly high-end device.

1. The screen has a really crappy bezel around it. This totally ruins the aesthetic of the phone. Quite frankly, this lack of attention to detail is what separates Apple from HTC, Samsung, etc. If Nokia is going to distinguish themselves, they need to pull out the stops on *all* of their hardware expertise and not just phone it in after they get 80% of the way there.

2. The tolerance of the SIM tray is pretty bad by iPhone 4s standards (which are super tight.) It always looks misaligned, though the dark color hides it, it looks pretty bad in the cooler colors.

3. The texture is a lot cheaper feeling than the N800. This isn't quite Samsung-gr...

Windows Phone sucks. It's a bitter pill to swallow but thats just the harsh reality. No one wants it. Put a refurb Galaxy S II next to this phone for only $9.99. Which one do you think the consumer is going to choose?

You're ridiculous. You actually think Apple is the high end of technology and the standard by which to compare other phones, when in fact they only make over priced middle of the road junk. You have to find a low end Samsung device to find one as poor...

Yeap. Even bigger fail for M$ with their crappy OS. M$ really needs to get out of the OS business. Nokia should have gone with Android.

Nokia missed the opportunity...

Unlike the iPhone that started off its life exclusive to AT&T, it was a mistake to have Nokia to place its Lumia 800 and 900 with AT&T only. Look at the sucess Samsung has with their Galaxy series of phones. By offering their phones with ALL four carriers, its managed to become the #2 smartphone in the sales charts here in the US.

Being an T-Mobile customer, I wanted to try the 800 or the 900 phones, but neither of them support T-Mobiles radio frequencies and your stuck downloading content at 2G speeds.

You lost a customer, Nokia. And no, I don't care for the 720:
A lot of that had to do with carrier interest. Most carriers opted to wait for WP8(Apollo) to support any new hardware running Windows Phone. Verizon opted to not support it due to lack of LTE support. Sprint said they will wait for Apollo as well. No...

Amusing

I'm amused at the amount of time many people spend to hate this phone. You people do realize that you're still generating buzz for the phone. If you genuinely hated it, you would simply ignore it.

Thank you for promoting Nokia.

Question for you Eric

Is there a switch in the settings to disable the 4G LTE, or does it automatically come on whenever you're in an LTE coverage area?

Nokia Lumia 900

will this phone unlocked, work in T-mobiles network?
Unlocked? Yes.
...
If you can find it unlocked, or unlock one, it would work on GSM (2G) only, but not on 3G/4G, as it does not support WCDMA 1700.

Next up, Nokia Metro

Actually, no such phone. Just sounded kind of good to say it. Lol

On a serious note, I'm glad to see WP7 growing. It may not grab the mindshare of the majority but, grabbing the mindshare of a good 15%-25% of the market would be reasonable and enough to be taken much more seriously.

With the introduction of Windows 8 tablets and PC's, people are more likely to pay more attention to WP8, when they are released this fall. By then, the App market will have close to 100,000 apps, if the rate of growth continues, that will be installable across the hardware platform, if Microsoft maintains this idea of unity and I believe they will. A lot is riding on this.

NFC?

Wondering if this phone has NFC capabilities. Some articles state it does others don't state it at all. I know Nokia is pushing NFC with many of their accessories, so is it safe to say this device will have it?
I found out Windows Phone Mango does not support NFC. But I don't know if that's just an OS hindrance and if NFC is not built in at all.
