Post-Update testing

I Plan to Stick Around

Here's what I'm seeing from the update released today:

 

Versions

OS : 7.108107.79 (unchanged)

Firmware: 2175.1002.8107.12084 (changed from 2175.1000.8107.12082)

Purple Keyboard on Low brightness: Still an issue.  Rogers is shipping me a replacement device but it's currently backordered.

Temporary workaround: Set your brightness to default to Medium.'

 

Network Connectivity: post update, everything seems to be working very well now.

 

Tethering: Worked like a charm as well

 

MMS: Working too

 

Battery Life: I'll run for a day or two and post my findings.  Will leave it on LTE for a day and then normal 3G only the next

Any plan that is 1GB or higher is supposed to have tethering (according to rep). LTE is for sure tied to the type of plan. I can confirm that there is 6GB LTE plan for $30 but I believe you need a corporate code attached to your plan.

Hopes that helps some folks

Do you know if the $30/6 GB plan is only available as a contract term?  I asked about this plan and only could get a $60/6 GB as shown on the Rogers website (currently no term customer)

 

Thanks

The 6gb, 30$ plan is usually a promo the roll out when the new iPhones come out. Once it does, I'm upgrading to it for sure.

No really. Rogers offers the 6GB $30 promo without a new iPhone coming out. I noticed they had this plan before the iPhone 4S came out & after until December or January from what i remember. I remember adding 6GB for $30 during the summer of last year.

Rogers copies the other carriers just like they copy Rogers. Once another carrier adds that promo, Rogers will run a day later & add it as well. Same goes with the other carriers.


Contact retentions & speak to them. They might be able to offer it too you.

I was easily able to convert my old 6GB/$30 "BlackBerry" plan to a 6GB/$30 LTE data plan yesterday.  I simply asked for it and the agent made the change right away, but I think being on a coporate plan makes it easier.

 

Internet Sharing started working for me as soon as I made that change, but since I did that prior to getting the firmware update I don't know if that would have fixed it as well.

Not sure it is a promo. I have had the plan for sometime. After getting the Lumia 900 and having issues with the data called tech sup and was repeatedly told my plan was LTE. Finally someone realized it was not and got me to customer service who switched it over no issue. Then proceed to convert my wife's plan at no charge to the same 6GB/$30 plan. After that LTE was showing not just 4G (in the status bar as connection). Hope that helps.

Still having issue with turning on internet sharing. Sometimes it turns in other times it says it is not allowed. When I do get it to turn in cannot surf via computer. Says it is connected, shows I have internet access (Windows 7 network status) but cannot surf.

Anyone else with similar experience?

I can't say I've had any issues like that, but I've only tried it for a few minutes on the Lumia.  I was testing it last evening and was able to connect my PlayBook to the Lumia and browse the internet for a few minutes on a 3G/4G connection (I live just outside of the LTE coverage in the GTA).

I'm at about 7 hours into my day with LTE, Wifi and Bluetooth on and display at Medium brightness and the battery is down to 45%.  The reception in my building is pretty crappy to boot so it's flipping between LTE, 4G, 3G and EDGE a lot.

 

Tomorrow I'm going to try and setting it to 3G only.

So the phone ended up on Battery Saver about 10-11 hours with the Cellular setting set to 4G.   I've put it on 3G today and we'll see what that does.

 

Interestingly, (and this may be a symptom of my location, the phone keps bounging between Edge, 3G and LTE (and not touching HSPA+) when set to 4G.   It does get to HSPA+ on 3G but I'm still seeing it bounce between frequencies a lot.

Mine bounces between 3G and HSPA+ (4G) occasionally.

There is a hidden menu u can try at your own risk .. ##DATA# .. once ur in, go to setting  and you can toggle stuff .. again try at ur own risk ..

Another thing I'm noticing is that when the screen is locked, holding the camera button doesn't always bring up the camera. Pre-network fix it did.
