    Moved to Lumia 720 some weeks back.

    Can some one let me know how to

    1) disable the watsapp notifications which appears on the top of the home screen whenever you receive a message?
    2) disable the vibration on pressing the back,home or search buttons?

    I don't know if there is even a way to do this. Is there any such option available with Android phone too? I have to force stop the application to stop receiving the notifications.

    This should be possible. Lumia owners can comment on this. :)

    Using a Lumia 520 since 4 months.
    I have not tried,but you can disable Notifications under settings in Whatsapp.
    And i am still looking for a way to disable the vibration on key press.
    Actually vibrator motor conked out in mine about a month back,so it got fixed:)
    Vibrator is actually useless in Lumia,as even on a call,it just vibrates just once.

    Guys, an update on ''LUMIA AMBER'' - GDR2 update.

    Though this update is being processed slowly for different variants, I was lucky to get it in my Lumia-920, on the very first day as it got released here in India on August 15th.

    Apart from the additional features, including the support for 'radio' et all, there's a considerable improvement in the battery life too!

    On a normal usage, just calls, sms, checking mail once in 30min, and using fb app for once in an hour, the battery lasted for almost two & a half days!

    MODS: Please downsize my image as it's appearing too large! My original is just a screen shot, but while uploading, it's getting upsized.

    The vibration has reduced considerably on my Lumia 920, after the amber update. It can't be disabled.

    I really hate this vibration. But, this can be disabled in the Android phones which I use. I am very much towards Nokia/Windows phone over last few months. I really like this Lumia 920 but this vibration part is worrying. Let me wait. :)

    Soft key vibrations cannot be turned off in W8 phones. However, Whats app notifications can be turned off - go to What's app settings, turn off 'show what's app msg in notification'
