I have an ipad, ipod touch, my wife has an iphone 4. I just sold my android phone. Nothing was wrong with it, it was fast and stable but I didn't quite click with it. So now I have this focus.
I've currently got it connected to my mac and it's downloading what I hope is mango right now. Looking at this mac connector software for WP7 I can tell you this is going to be 10x than my android for managing my podcasts which is a big deal for me.
So still getting it setup and some apps downloaded then i'll start bugging you with questions.

You will love the focus. Replaced an iPhone 4 with mine, and haven't looked back.
Sent from my non mindless sheep iphone Samsung Focus using Board ExpressMake with the WP purchase already one time why dontcha for pete's sake. Honestly.....

Congrats on the Focus. I've had one since January when they went on sale at AT&T.
I'll be waiting for the Focus S. I have an upgrade on my main line coming up next month (or end of this... can't remember). May be my last smartphone (unless I get them for free) until the iPhone 5 or the next big Windows Phone by Samsung.

For some reason I had to log into hotmail and re-invite my wife. She accepted and now we can chat again. Strange I had to do that. Looks like I have to reinvite all my friends I want to chat in messenger with.
I also have some apps that aren't remaining open and aren't receiving push notifications such as IM+, freetalk and govoice. I wonder if it's just an issue of waiting for the apps to get updated for mango?

Now i'm in messenger again and she's logged into hotmail on the desktop. She can see i'm online but I can't see she's online from the phone.
I can however reply to her messages to me. It tells me she's offline but she's getting my messages.

I had a similar issue, my 'favorites' folders were of type 'favorite' and don't show up in WP Office.

I can get them if I go to the website on my phone, just not within the office app itself.

Yep, you're right. They were not in her folder but just on the skydrive. I can't figure out how to move them into her "my documents" folder so I made a new test excel document in the folder and shared it. Then got on my phone and in the office app and it was there.
Now I just need to figure out how to get the other documents she has into that folder.

there used to be a 'move/copy' feature under the Path under Information, but I don't see it anymore.
edit: looks like 'move' is only available if it's already in a folder. she'll have to download the documents, then upload them into a document-type folder.

once you have a samsung, you want another one. the Focus is that good of a phone.
as for push, I've seen the same thing. I wonder if some of their push servers just aren't doing the job, or if they've actually stopped the push service entirely.
