Sonic CD will be $5, BTW. DOTW is 80% off a particular title that isn't very special, but still a nice deal.


And that particular title is.......:)

Oh cool, thanks. I was gonna guess something more recent like NFS Hot Pursuit. But I can definitely go for some Uno for a buck. Thanks as always Paul!

I loves me some Uno, so that works for me. I just wish it was more like the XBLA version.

The preview build for Skype for WP8 is available on the marketplace now. They make a big deal about pointing out how it's not final yet. I'm curious as to how well it works. I will have to wait to test out the video chat until I can get on WiFi tonight.

Stupid question but I am asking it anyway....You can't use MS Points to buy Windows 8 games, right?

No.

BTW the battery on my exchanged 920 is still shit. Losing 6% in an hour of NOT using it. I'm pretty pissed off right now.

Co-worker who got a 920 is taking it back tonight.

Battery problem I hear you ask, he told me the battery life isn't great but no, the phone has lost it's earpiece speaker. So he can only hear calls putting them on speaker or through a headset.

I think I'll hold off on upgrading for a little while.

Block Nokia Drive in background tasks if you haven't this has seemed to help many with battery issues.

Lumia 920 experiencing battery issues

Possible cause:

Severe Gmail bug impacting WP8 performance

Another theory:

NFC may be causing the drain, so turn off that feature and see how it goes.

This will all be fixed soon, and is definitely no reason to give up on the phone.

I heard that completely draining the battery and then doing a full charge fixes the 920 battery issue.

Much better than my Samsung Captivate that I will be replacing

I've drained the battery and have had NFC off since I got the phone. Maybe KIK is doing it, its the only thing I can think of

Just ordered the Nokia Lumia 810 for $458.99 online with overnight shipping, saving me $140 versus if I had purchased it at the local t-mobile store. If anyone else is interested and doesn't want to do a contract, here you go: http://phones.micros...cae2aba245aee20


*it also has options for those who want to use it on a t-mobile contract as well*

Hmmm. For some reason when I click on Uno it says This app is not available for your device.But whenever it was $4.99 it was available for purchase.

Just means it hasn't updated in your area yet. It happened to me earlier, then when Mix mentioned it in this thread of the price change, it reflected on my phone so I purchased it fine for that price. You just need to give it some time to update and reflect the price change, am sure they are working on it.

Yeah it's super easy. I got 175/200 last night before falling asleep. Just need to win one medium and hard game and I'll be done with it.

I'm really disappointed with how easy this game is. The AI doesn't up a fight at all and it seems like every time I call Uno, no matter what is in play at the time, the "player" before me plays precisely what I need in order to win. I mean, the game is still fun, but not as fun as it should be.
