Recently, owners of the Windows Phone 8-powered Nokia Lumia 920 on the U.S. carrier AT&T started receiving the 1308 firmware update over the air (OTA). Now reports suggest that Lumia 920 owners are facing connectivity issues after installing the update.
The update is meant to fix bugs and brings several enhancements and tweaks to the Lumia 920. The software update is supposed to bring a storage fix option, the ability to change the color intensity of the display, performance and stability improvements, especially to the 8.7-megapixel camera which carries Carl Zeiss optics. Nokia pushed out this firmware update after receiving feedback from field testing.
"Update improves proximity sensor parameters, improved automatic display brightness adjustment & performance improvements," notes Nokia Care US.
However, many AT&T Nokia Lumia 920 owners who installed the software update are complaining that they are having connectivity problems after installing the update.
"My L920 has been having a difficult time connecting to AT&T since the firmware update. It was going in and out, it shows the bars but I am unable to send or receive texts or anything else without being on WiFi. Anyone else had this happen to them?" complained one user on Reddit.
"Ever since the update my LTE keeps dropping to no service and back in areas where I used to have excellent service. And then today my phone froze for the first time. This 1308 update is awful. I wish I could revert back," complained another user on Reddit.
Neither Nokia nor AT&T have released any statement regarding the connectivity issue on the Lumia 920 after the software update.
The software update has not made its way to Lumia 920 owners on other U.S. carriers and Nokia has also not confirmed release date of the software for any other networks.
If you are an AT&T Nokia Lumia 920 owner, have you installed the software update and are you facing any problems after installing the update?
