Default Lumia 925 General Questions

Hi all

I have my new 925 and could do with some help!

How do I switch off the live tile for People?
Why do I need a Nokia account?
How do I switch off the dimmed clock on the lock screen?
How do you switch off in-call notifications for messages etc.?
Can I set the default search provider (for the magnifying glass icon) to Google instead of Bing?

Any help would be great!

You dont need Nokia account... except for Nokia Mix Radio (switch to US account on Nokia web account page) if your region not supported

to turn off clock go to settings - glance

for most of your question check http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/how-to/wp8
HTC HD2 * download Pdaimatejam ROM's + radio's

Change Live account region - https://live.xbox.com/AccountMigration

Gmail/Google settings, sync and calendar under WP7.8

My devices: Nokia Lumia 920 developer unlocked, HTC HD2 (sold), Zenithink Z102 (sold), GoClever TAB T76 GPS TV (loaned )

Thanks.

I'll note my solutions here for others.

How do I switch off the live tile for People?

You can't. But making the tile 1x4 rather than 4x4 stops the live aspect of it.

Why do I need a Nokia account?

Unnecessary completely.

How do I switch off the dimmed clock on the lock screen?

Settings --> Glance

How do you switch off in-call notifications for messages etc.?

So far this is the biggest flaw as it can't be turned off.

Can I set the default search provider (for the magnifying glass icon) to Google instead of Bing?

Yes. Settings --> Applications --> Internet Explorer

Then Settings --> Language+Region --> Search language --> Bashkir
Hit the search button, login to your Google account
Reboot
Set language back to English
