Network+

A fresh batch of minor updates for Lumia phones has landed this morning. These updates apply to two system apps – Network+ and Rate Us – in addition to the optional vehicle assistant Lumia Car App.

First up is Lumia Car App, which is going by a new name with Lumia out in front instead of the previous Nokia moniker. As far as we know, this is the only change in this app and is a continuation of the de-Nokiafication of Lumia-specific apps in the Store.

Nokia updates Network+ again

Nokia has just rolled out another update to its Network+ app that brings some changes. The app says that it brings dual SIM support and smart dual SIM support, though these features were present since version 2.1. The app has a version number of 2.2.1.11 now. In the Windows Phone store, it looks like the changelog hasn't been updated, however, so we're not sure what improvements were added since the last update to Network+.

Microsoft Mobile – or what we’ll still to refer to as Nokia for now – has been busy this morning, pushing out no less than five updates for some of their Lumia system software. These are those little apps that help things run smoothly on your device, and are considered pretty important.

Of course, that implies we know what was fixed and in this case, we don’t. However, you can guess at the usual bug fixes, and we wouldn’t be surprised if there were a few optimizations for Windows Phone 8.1 devices (fingers crossed). Regardless, there’s no harm in doing these updates, so let’s have at ‘em.

The boys and girls from Finland are once again actively tweaking their system apps for their Windows Phone 8 Lumias. We’ve received a few tips this morning that their Network+ app has been updated and indeed, we can confirm.

The app is now being bumped to version 1.2.4.18. What’s changed? Heck if we know though we can tell you that the app, formely called Calls + SMS, deals with some cell network settings and is considered pretty important, especially if you’re experiencing any oddities in cell behavior.

Nokia has been pushing out a few backend updates for their Windows Phone 8 Lumias. The latest two come today with another one happening earlier in the week.

Unfortunately, we cannot tell you what has changed, as the updates have no change log. Neither can we share with you the direct store links, since these are system apps. But here are the new version numbers...

Every once in awhile, companies decide to rename things for whatever reason. Today it appears to be Nokia’s turn as they have pushed out an update for the ‘Call + SMS’ section on Lumia phones. The area (which many 810/820/822/920 users can find under Settings) is for network specific changes for call waiting (enable/disable), call forwarding (network dependent) and SMS character sets.
