Given the 1020 still doesn't have it, looks like AT&T isn't going to stop hiding it. So nope. Camera app is nice. Flip to silence is nice. Glance/tap to wake burn too much battery to use.

I had the same issue with my first and second 920. I'm on my third. Let it run till the battery dies then try to charge it. If it continues, your best bet will be to have att or Nokia replace your phone. All of your data will be lost

All I'm seeing with Glance is the time, and it's so dim that I can barely make it out. I thought you were supposed to see notifications, battery charge, and ring setting as well?  The double tap to wake is nice, though.  You're thinking it uses too much battery?

Wow it's actually happening?  So AT&T may not be the last after all.  Sucks about DataSense though.  Not a customer friendly move IMO.

Thank you ATT for FINALLY releasing the GDR2/Amber update.. I got it around 12:15 P.M. CST.   Long over due, but much appreciated.. Thanks for getting this released earlier than what we were expecting according to your response before of it coming out in a few weeks..  Hopefully the GDR3 release will be more timely

It took about 20 mins for me.. but I had to run the "check for updates" twice on mine.  it did the first update, but no glance screen.. then ran update again and it finally worked.. Downloaded Nokia Pro Cam app and then went to settings.. camera app and changed default app.   Obviously don't have data sense since we are on ATT.. go figure..

 

Thanks

Yes, definitely download the beta app from Nokia for glance backgrounds.. it allows up to 4 images from photo library.

 

It sounds likes the next update GDR3 update will show lock screen icons also in glance mode

Interesting....did a hard reset.   Amber..or should I say Glance is no longer available on my phone. 

 

When I feel stupid coming on I need to stop talking.  I won't have glance until the Nokia Display app is updated via store....duh....

Sent a tweet to @ATTCustomerCare asking them to confirm that ATT pulled the Datasense app and if so, why. No reply yet. Maybe if more folks would seed them a tweet we might hear something.

Yes, they did. It's been assumed they had since it was blocked (it's just hidden, apparenlty) in the new hardware that shipped with Amber/GDR2

 

As to why... because. Apparently that's why.

Figured it out. None if my system apps were updated and the system apparently doesn't check for them automatically.

Update went real smooth! Only problem afterwards: Local Scout is gone from App List....and, although Local Scout finds me perfectly, not a single listing comes up anymore in any category....either from the Local Scout Live Tile or from within Bing. Appears Local Scout has died. YP Mobile and HERE City Lens working perfectly....and, I guess, will fill the gap.

 

=================UPDATE=============

Issue solved! Arcane solution....but it works!

 

Go to Setting-Applications-Search-click Suggestions box (would you like to get suggestions) to ON.

Scroll down to the Facebook box and tap it to connect . Your all done Local Scout is now working :smileyhappy:

 

Thanks to God-like pals from Windows Phone Central forums!

Just an FYI for anyone doing a Hard Reset AFTER the Amber update.

 

You will lose the Amber Update components, but not the core update components.  

 

In order to have Glance and the other primary updates avaialble, go to the Nokia site, choose Support.  choose the 920. Scroll to the bottom of the page.  There is an FAQ with links to the updateable components there.  there are 3 of them.  Display, Extra's and Audio.  Install each.  Reboot.   Those Amber components will now be available. 

 

Or, don't Hard Reset...  :-)

mine will not either!  I called technical support but they were absolutely not a help.

 

He basically said wait until Monday, which doesn't make sense.

 

Please let me know if you figure it out!

The longer this update is on my phone, the more of a mess it becomes! Most Live Tiles that worked great before, no longer update. Many apps no longer function properly. For example, 6tag gets stuck on the mapping page looking for photos. That worked perfectly until the update.

 

I wish I had just left me phone as it was! It worked so well before this so-called update! How terribly disappointing! Shame on AT&T and Nokia for putting their customers through this garbage!

 

=================UPDATE===============

Discovered that any app that was pinned to Main screen from WITHIN the app.....connection to Live Tile broken by updates. Unpin/repin from back WITHIN each affected app (Bing Stocks/News, 6tag, etc....for example) solves issue.

 

Sure wish customers had received some of these these tips from Nokia and/or AT&T PRIOR to going through this hassle -- and many others!

Wow...your experience is totally different from mine. My phone is perfect - even better than it was before.

 

I just wish it had DataSense. Not happy about not getting that.

I have a Lumia 920, I updated to Amber last night.. Download went smooth, no hiccups.. After my phone restarts from the update, I notice I do not have the Glance feature. So I do a soft reset (Holding volume down button with power button), still not there.. Simply turned it off by only holding the power button, then turned it back on after 5 seconds of it being off. Glance is now there, and so far its working great, along with everything else. But I was under the impression that I would be able to view notifications (Also states that in the settings for glance). So tonight, there was an update for glance, still not working. Am I just mistaken about the notifications? Or is anybody else having the same issue? Some insight would be great, thanks!

I did the update yesterday, it went smoothly, busy. I noticed my game request/notifications don't show up on the lock screen. Everything else shows up, email, text, etc. but not the gaming icon. Anyone else noticing this?

Try to unpin/repin affected games/apps from WITHIN the game/app itself. This has fixed most similar issues for me. Apparently, the updates broke a lot of connections between Live Tiles/Notifications and apps.

 

Good luck! I sure hope this fixes your issue!

I've had the exact same experience - glace working great (I use peek - costs about 5% battery in my day) but no notifications, just the time shown.

The standard fix for "borked" live tiles that don't update is to unpin/repin (regardless of how they got there) them.

 

It's one of those OS bugs that I really wish they would fix, but I'm glad you got it worked out.

did you do both updates?

 

Amber update is the second update.  without this update you don't get Glance.   check updates again.

 

If you did both updates, you should be good after update.   Go to Settings, and scroll all the way to the bottom, you should see glance.

 

If you did the updates and then a Hard Reset, like I did, you will need to re-add the glance components.  go to Nokia. com/Support.  choose the 920.  Scroll to the bottom of the page, to the FAQs and find the FAQ, my amber updates are not visible.  Follow those steps, reboot, then Glance should be available.

 

hope that helps
