    Sweet, I might opt for this one instead of the pod-device.

    I wonder if it's all different coding per item because I have multiple systems in the house and I don't want my phone to be confused and shit.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    The functions are working well but when you finish a call on the Lumia and I'm listening to internet radio, it struggles to do playback. Will test on downloaded music later on.

    I'm waiting for the Belkin HD Bluetooth Receiver to be on stock at MemEx then my vintage stereo will experience Bluetooth powah!

    I bought the Belkin off of thier website. This model works pretty good. Phone can be accross the house and still gets good reception.

    I bought the Sony MW600 bluetooth headset last year. They worked perfectly with my N8. With the 920 I cannot answer the phone with them. If I click to answer on the bluetooth it cancels out and goes to the phone.

    Nice. I'm gonna order the Monoprice ones today and if they're POS, it's fine.

    Have you tried unlink/relink?

    Hey, how much is the shipping on that bad boy? I need to place a small order from monoprice as well, and maybe we can split shipping.

    If I buy 3, it's $7.45 via Canada Post.

    If you go 4+, you're forced to go UPS (Hells nope), USPS ($32?Too high) or DHL ($24.74? Yeah).

    Crazy, nvm, much cheaper if the order is split. Thanks for checking!

    Yeah no worries! Sometimes it's cheaper to combine but only if both of us are buying a lot.

    I'm not buying that much stuff now but I'll keep you in mind if I plan to raid them.

    Just ordered the Incipio DualPro case from here: blueshop

    Not the cheapest price but with free shipping, it's the cheapest I could find.

    Let us know how it goes after! I'd go for one but the colors are so dead.

    Got that case-mate naked/barely there case (clear) on Friday for my 920.

    Some things i've noticed about it

    - Perfect fit. Snaps in easily.
    - It's a smooth/glossy finish
    - Does not interfere with the flash (I've seen other cases interfere with the flash).
    - It's supposed to be 2mm and I believe it. I barely notice it at all (no pun intended)
    - It doesn't wrap far around the side so there is no protection on the top.
    - It tapers off towards the ends, so the top, front corners are slightly exposed. If it fell on the front side corners, it might impact the phone directly. Not the best protection for drops/impacts
    - The buttons are all recessed from the side, however the opening to access the buttoms extends down enough that you can easily use the buttons if you've got your hand wrapped around the phone. If it's in your pocket, it's more awkward and harder to press the buttons.
    - I'm getting condensation build up between the phone and the case. It's most noticable when I come inside after being out in the cold.
    - Dust, and pocket lint, is somehow getting into it. I think it's from the size of the openings for the buttons.

    If anyone wants to see it i'll try and take a pic of it.

    Please do if you can.

    I'm curious how it stacks against other cases. I got this Avoca rubber case from Rogers Plus:

    http://www.avocatec.com/avsitedgen/c...etail?Itemid=0

    Combined with iShieldz, it's a great case with the gripped sides and protected edges. You have to push harder for the side buttons but it's not bulky at all in the pocket.

    Ditto, I'd like to see how it looks. I've got the same rubber case from Rogers for the time being (was all they had when I got the phone)

    I ordered the Nokia CC 1043. These things fit like a glove, you can barely tell there is a case. Been waiting on Expansys to get red ones but found this site. Came to $17 CDN with shipping, which is actually cheaper than Expansys.

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-No.../400401459389?

    $17.99 at expansys.

    http://www.expansys.ca/nokia-soft-co...20-red-240679/

    Video of the black one.

    Yeah I tried unpairing, repairing then unpairing, reboot, repairing and does not matter. It gives a description on the phone as Voice, Music. I have a bluetooth phone at home at the 920 works perfect with it even when connected to the Belkin


    I bought this case. It is a hard case with a rubber feel. I like it.

    Hard Case

    I also bought these cases and car mount if anyone is interested in them. $10 for all of it.


    Mount


    Case 1

    Case 2

    I noticed that Bluetooth doesn't stream properly after extended usage; not through headphones nor in the car.

    Have to do a phone reebot for it to work again.

    I stream over Bluetooth all day at work using Slacker. Sometimes it stops and I just need to press play again. I tried a different App that did not seem to stream very well over Bluetooth and gave all sorts of troubles with the Bluetooth when I tried going back to Slacker or even music on the phone. I unistalled it and everything works as before.

    By 'streaming', I didn't mean internet streaming but that's also affected. Wrong choice of words.

    It's also an issue with locally saved music files on the phone. I'm listening to my headphones; get a call; then hit Play and nothing comes out.

    Maybe I should just turn off text-to-speech entirely...

    No I understood what you meant. I just used Slacker as an example as I experienced the same problem you are having with a different app. I have no problems recieving a call while streaming music over Bluetooth and then resuming the music after the call is done with either my headphones or Bluetooth phone at home. Occasionally music will just stop playing and I need to hit press play again. Not sure if that is the phone or Slacker. I also do not have text-to-speech turned on.
