Nokia App Updates

Nokia has released an update for its Network+ system app on Lumia Windows Phones. If you're not familiar with what Network+ brings in terms of functionality, the app deals with some cell network settings and is considered pretty important. We've today received a bunch of tips surrounding a release.

Since 1.4, there have been usability improvements related to conditional call forwarding implemented, along with improved call forwarding number selection. In there's now a call counter in the Network+ system area which shows exactly how long you've been active in calls for (system resets defaults the counter back to 0).

Network+ Counter Update

You can check out the latest version of Network+ from the Nokia Collection on the Windows Phone Store. via: WMPU; thanks everyone for the tips!

76:19:18 not bad.

Jason_JS_G says:

What am I missing?

Jason_JS_G says:

Oh sorry I get it now. 215:01:21

McDaddyMike says:

Lol, 1279:45:13 here... I cant believe that since i restored my phone in june or july

Mine says over 1400 hours... I just reset my phone 2 weeks ago. Even without the reset, there is no way I've spent 50 days talking on the phone since I bought the phone in March.
Also, "Call Forwarding" and "Call Waiting" has disappeared.

poddie says:

I wonder if it includes Skype calls? My 1020 says 70 hours, which is impossible for phone calls, but could be right for Skype + phone.

Xaphoon148 says:

Call waiting is still there, press the button :P

Maybe for you, but for me, call waiting and call forwarding is GONE. ..l._

Xaphoon148 says:

That's strange. I get up call waiting by clicking the new button in network+ and call forwarding is in settings / programs / mobile (cellphone?)
Mine is in Norwegian so maybe some differences??

The update seems to vary depending on either model or carrier or both.

neogodless says:

Ha! 1261:28:02 here. No way. I rarely spend any time on the phone.

xirsteon says:

too bad..i dont use this app...just as i avoid the access point app too. messes w/my sms/data settings...

This. No one else has this issue? And I can't seem to delete that app(access point)

ChanceW says:

So does 169:47:50 mean I've spent 169 hours in calls?

ChanceW says:

Thanks. Although, that seems way too high, seems like other people are having similar issues.

faalil says:

Great..Now we can pin Network+ to start manu... I hope that feature rollout to Wifi, Bluetooth and Screen Rotation in future
Currently I am using Insider Pro.. But I need this feature by default from Nokia not by 3rd party apps...

MikeSierras says:

My thoughts exactly

I Unquello says:

+1 for Insider Pro!

timotei21 says:

God. I don't need that. I need to see EACH call individually how long it took :(

PS: Just for bragging: 1510 hours here :D

poddie says:

Exactly. I never understand phones that don't show call duration... for those of us that bill by the hour it's pretty important, and an incredibly obvious and simple thing for them to implement. Sigh.

UCGFM says:

I can't believe this feature is missing too, it's really annoying :-/

Roshan Roxx says:

Why this shit store doesn't show updates!
If wpc was not there it would have a worst platform
Thanks WPC
Love your efforts

Checki says:

There are many solutions for your problem. Just google or BING it! You fool

Roshan Roxx says:

Dude it doesn't tell that the app has got update as soon the devs release it! Mine shows in the afternoon times daily it checks once Dono about twice!

If you didn't hear about it from WPC, you'd see the update in the store within a day or two.

John20212 says:

That's BS I haven't been receiving any updates for apps on my 1020 and 520 for weeks, as have many other people on WP, just check the forums.

This is a huge fail on Microsofts part.


Works fine for me, maybe you need a new phone.

J4rrod says:

It checks twice a day

ricsip says:

Do you maybe know if there is an exact time of the day when the store is checked against the list of installed apps for update? I believe its either a fixed point of time of the day, or depends on the boot time of the Phone, i dont know, as MS doesnt share such technical details anywhere. Issue is, my phone is usually offline to preserve battery, I only go online as long as I need, and then go back offline. Because of this (and the stupid behavior of the store app not being able to force check manually) I probably always miss the scheduled update time, and so it takes 1-2 months (yes, even two months!) until I see updates appear in the store app. The sh*ttiest application update experience on windows-based system sofar.

Roshan Roxx says:

Yeah right my store shows daily from 1-2 pm that time Il keep my phone online and i get updates!
Even me before I used to get after 2 months only so only i was using sysapp pusher its a great app even now i use it!

Killjoy87 says:

A friend of mine had that problem with his Lumia 520. He wasn't able to download any apps or games from store. We fixed that problem by hard-resetting his phone and logging it in with a new Live account, instead of his old 3rd party email account. I read that it should be possilbe to use whatever email account to sign in to WP, but practically, it seems that you should use a Live account with your phone. I don't know if this is the problem in your case, but it's a possibility.

ViN_DuMmY says:

353:13:33 Come at me bro

thirdday2002 says:

Mine says 797:00:19 - there's no way I've spent 797 hours on phone calls.

casab1anca says:

Yeah mine says 638:07:22 too and that doesn't seem right.

marcomura says:

Installed... mine shows nothing.
Any clue why?

marcomura says:

Am I the only one who doesn't have the "Voice call counter" with this update?

RJ Priest says:

Great to see this added.  My 2006 Samsung flip phone (sph-a900) would display the total number of calls (made + received) and total cumulative talk time as days:hours:mins:seconds.  Little things like this may be easy to overlook in a modern OS, or it may be one of those little things that we'd expect to be in WP from the beginning.

lfjj says:

907:34:40, I'm a talkative motherfucker!

Mine says nearly 9,000 hours. No way. I might -- *might* -- make or receive two calls a month. Bogus.

Arpit Mittal says:

how to remove call forward number as I dont want any number as for try I entered Number but now how can I remove that number. I am f*****g doomed

cooljatt says:

But i haven't call forwarding option ??????? On my lumia 620 i saw in screenshot but cant find anywhere in setting .... Have anybody that issue or isn't not available on lumia 620 ....????

marcomura says:

I don't have it too... clicking on 'set' the only option I have is the Call waiting.
Also, I don't have the Voice call counter in the main page.

cooljatt says:

I have call counter its showing 96:43:53. But i don't have the call forward option i have also only the call wating option in settings ...

I have the counter, but neither call option.

cooljatt says:

I also update on my 920 .. But same prb :/

Rick Smits says:

Call forwarding is still in the settings. Go to settings > swipe left to applications > Phone

cooljatt says:

Thanx #rick smits .. But as in screenshot its doesn't shoe in,net+ settings . But anyway thanx for help ...

taymur says:

281:37:55 what!! Haha

crav4speed says:

It seems AT&T's network doesn't allow the changing of any settings except to turn on and off Call Waiting. I just updated on my L1520 and under call settings, it's only showing that option and no conditional call forwarding options. This sucks!

AskaLangly says:

1910:45:59. My phone is a refurbrished prototype. I know I didn't spend ALL that time on calls...

07:16:14 since buying my 521 about 6-8 months ago.

Richard_Indy says:

04:07:29 for me. Sounds about right on the 1520. I'm glad it doesn't report time spent on data/wifi. I'd be married to this bitch by proxy

Ecurb87 says:

Same here, lol

Ddriver66 says:

Not to use All in all, and now is also the redirection icon visible and no longer to bring off. Only crap!

broar94 says:

Try going to "call setting" whichs at top of the setting

JKing106 says:

My call forwarding settings are now gone after updating Network+.

Fritzly says:

My Motorola MicroTac had this feature in 1990: actually it had a total counter, plus

counters for total, incoming and outgoing calls that I could reset at will...



So... are you going to get that phone reconnected? What's your point?

Fritzly says:

My point, and a quite obvious one I would add, is that "Smartphones" are just seeing a crippled version of something that was available almost 25 years ago on dumb, ETACS phones.

Have anybody tried to reset the call counter to zero, by doing a system reset?
It doesn't work on my Lumia 920.

Darren Walsh says:

Not sure if this was there before but when typing a SMS you now see character count and how many messages you are sending aka over 160 is 2 texts, was this before gdr3 or new to it, or did the network + bring it??

wpguy says:

Its been there since WP7 phones rolled off the lines

Alphageek_UK says:

I don't have that on my 1520 on Vodafone UK. I wonder if it's because most contracts over here have Unlimited Texts?

Darren Walsh says:

It only shows up after you type more than 130 letters, give it a try

Alphageek_UK says:

So it does. Thanks.

broar94 says:

Lol something that was implemented in android or other smartphone is. As always, wp is late to the party. Hope android comes soon to ms!!

swizzlerz says:

Troll go home to your crapy Linux nock off!

d3d9 says:

Nice! This was possible with dialing ##634# but this makes it easier :p

dinesh84d says:

Call forwarding icon is permanently visible now, just next to signal bars.
Can we disable it??

kinaton says:

I used ##002# to remove all diverts

Ticomfreak says:

For me, it's 5 hours :/

I have the latest update on my Lumia 1020 but i can't see the voice call counter, don't know why.

Fritzly says:

Me neither, Lumia 920 with GDR3 beta.

JoRdaNeK says:

14.20.........that's it?

Corepc says:

521/T-Mobile working reads 16:09:05

Really do not use voice that much,

DamianSL says:

4630:45:55 Lumia 920. I don't think that's even possible... 190 days on my phone?

kinaton says:

I get no options other than call waiting and counter. No call divert options

Jajai_jeB21 says:

mine is 2024:00:24 hullaaa~~~

swizzlerz says:

I'm over 49hrs got my phone Oct 24th I think.

edsal says:

How do you check to see the total call time ?

MrDaedra says:

Really 500 hours? OMG

lkishor says:

Call timer is the total time you have talked on phone regardless of your phone being reset... And its just phone call, does not include voip call made by any other app

typhon62_1 says:

I make a few calls a week that usually last less than a few minutes.

I've had my AT&T 920 for a year now, but there's no way I've talked 4444.47.28.


traduma says:

The Lifetime counter is not believable, and cannot reset to 0 as mentioned above.

ScubaNitrox says:

1736:12:46 for me!
