Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 lets you set the time without a SIM card

151

One of the smaller, but very useful features in Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 is Network Time Protocol (NTP) support. If you run a PC, NTP is nothing new, it is simply the ability for the computer to ping the server and pulldown the time off the internet. (Wikipedia fact: It is one of the oldest internet protocols in use!)

However, Windows Phone did not support this, at least not until Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1.

Three UK to introduce pre-credit check for new subscribers

24

With any new mobile subscription comes the requisite credit check, and for customers with low credit scores, the potential to be denied their service plan or phone of choice. To smooth out this process, Three UK has revealed that it'll soon introduce pre-credit checks to give potential customers "an indication" of whether they'll pass a credit check "without negatively affecting" credit ratings.

iOttie Easy Flex Qi Car Charger Review

One of the more convenient features of many of the Lumia Windows Phones is the Qi wireless charging. Whether you are fortunate enough to have Qi built into your Lumia Windows Phone or rely on the wireless charging covers, the technology offers a simple means to re-charging your phone.

Nokia has added the technology to their CR-200/201 car cradle and iOttie has followed suit with their Easy Flex Qi Car Charger. The iOttie Qi charger is designed similar to the company's Easy Flex 2 and One Touch car cradles with an easy one touch mounting system.

While the iOttie Easy Flex Qi is priced less than the Nokia, one small feature may negate any savings the wireless charging cradle may offer.

AT&T begins selling Green Lumia 1520 with 16 GB for $199

195

As expected, AT&T is finally selling the super bright green Nokia Lumia 1520, complete with Windows Phone 8.1 and Lumia Cyan pre-installed (you can see what is new in our review). Considering the 8.1 update came out about 10 days ago for the Lumia 1520 that makes sense.

The big question is does the green Lumia 1520 bring anything else for $199 on-contract. Unfortunately, no. This is still the 16 GB version, although you can expand that with up to 128 GB with a micro SD card. There is also no Qi wireless charging, heck, they are not even pushing the PMA charging although we're sure it can at least do that much.
