    My only issue is the volume for the ringer/music are not separate. That and Zune Marketplace is a pain in the *** to download from.

    Well about half of those are actually features (like saving web history), and a bunch of the others sound like a problem with your phone (freezing, dodgy touchscreen). The rest are the same as could be expected from either iOS or Android ("don't own your data", tied to Zune, etc).
    Life couldn't get better, this could be the best day ever.

    First smartphone? When you touch the screen make sure you "commit to the touch". Don't barely touch it, that's when accidental taps happen. Touch solid, slide, lift fully. Given the fact that almost nobody dials full numbers these days but calls right off a contact card or search result, history is more useful for default.

    Just delete the browser history and clear your cache if it's getting too long.

    is this guy talking about his Android phone? or is he just trolling wrong info?

    OR he simply doesn't know how to do anything and instead of taking the time to figure things out he rented?

    Not sure what OP means about uploading pics, but we will try to help if you can explain more clearly. Not sure what you mean/what the problem is regarding adding yourself to contacts(?) Downloading music and the way content and data is handled are about the same as any other smartphone, you said it yourself, so why mention it? Phone history is there whem you hit the phone button? Yes, thats because the numbers you dial frequently will be one tap away then. If you want the phone number keypad, that us one tap away too. Last page you visited in explorer is there in saved state? Don't see a problem there, it enables you to return to where you were. Is it that hard to just click to your home page if you want? If the phone is freezing, something is wrong. Take it in have someone look at it. The rest sounds like user error to me.

    I went ahead and numbered those for you, so we can look at them point by point. Lets get started shall we?
    1. Once you've put the pic on your pc it's no different than any other pic, not sure what your problem is.

    2. You wanted yourself as a contact and needed to add it? How is this unusual?

    3. Why don't you want to use Zune? You can add your existing iTunes(or w/e you used previously) to Zune and you're good to go. Personally i find Zune more user friendly than iTunes anyway.

    4. um, okay?

    5. What would you like it to take you to? As it is you see your history with buttons to take you to keypad, voice mail, contacts. If you know who you want to call it would make more sense to go to people>person>call. If you don't know who you're calling it makes sense to go to history, maybe you're replying to a missed call, or calling someone back who isn't a contact.

    6. You'd rather open to a blank(or home)page each time you start IE? Personally i find opening to my last session to be preferable. I guess they could make this an option though.

    7. Never had this happen.

    8. Responsive touch screen. But yes you do have a point on the menus, currently they are a little finiky.

    9. Is this different than #6?

    3. I have over 20G of music in Zune and 8G on my phone .. I dint download a single song from ZUNE .. actually its all torrents.... then i upload the folder to ZUNE and it auto syncs..

    4> you dont own your data ..??? you decide 100% what you want to share/not share. advantage of WP over android... WP has the BEST security of ALL the OS out there ( accept Blackberry)

    5. phone freeze whens searching apps? my phone hasn't froze once in 2 years.

    for the history/security..

    did you try hmm... turning off your COOKIES!!! ... erase your history??? OR DISABLE internet explore from collecting your info??:lol:

    have you even been IN the settings of your WP!!! GOOD GOD!

    #4. Data ownership...

    I realize words aren't your strong point, but if you take time to read, or (gasp!) use a search engine, you will find that your data IS indead YOUR DATA. MS says so in the agreement that you agreed to when you signed up for Live and SkyDrive.

    I think by "download" he means "transfer it to the phone." He's saying he doesn't like having to connect to Zune to put music on the phone. I don't think the guy's a troll, I'd say it's a legit complaint, though not one that really bothers me. But it would be nice to be able to download music onto your phone from, say, a web site or app.

    people that want to use their phone as mass storage for Music i think is missing the big picture.. let me explain.


    Mass storage: Download song to Folder --> connect phone -> open folder -> drag files to phone from music folder.

    Zune/Wp way: Download songs to folder --> Connect phone --> done.

    obviously you have to take 10sec to *chose* the folder to sync with in Zune ONCE in the LIFE of your WP.... mass storage you have to do it EVERY time cause its manual instead of automatic..

    personally i love ZUNE , it does it all for me... **** i was bored at work and I notice my phone sync all my vids :) so i watched a movie :) hehe I love it!!

    You have to remember.. wp7 was rushed to the market and consequently, very basic functions were left out or parts of the os were unfinished. Mango was an installation of most of the stuff left out of wp7's release and was dubbed "a major update" leading people to believe they were "mango-ised". One thing I have to say though (and maybe this is due to the lack of power under the hood), the phone is always a smooth experience. Never has frozen, never stutters, web pages render perfectly, and touch is very responsive. Its kind of a trade-off. But MS really needs to combine the two in Wp8 for me to want to continue using windows phone.

    Stop looking at porn on your phone. Then you won't be embarrassed about what someone might see on IE on your phone.

    Was this like a drive-by post? OP hasn't responded in a few days. Hope it wasn't just another b*tch-fest for the sake of being heard.
