    Does anyone know how to mute only apps and games? I like to play angry bird star wars but when I'm on work I have to mute my entire phone to play. So when someone calls me later on I don't hear my ringtone.

    Settings -> Mute? ;-)

    It's on the bottom right in Angry Birds Star Wars, the little cogwheel button. Then touch the speaker.

    Okay thanks for that, but that's not really what I mean. On my android phone I could mute media with my volume buttons and my ringtone was still at high volume.

    And this is a missing feature / design choice everybody talks about. It's just not existing on Windows Phone.

    That's okay, the "missing features is a feature" thing with Windows Phone needs some getting used to ;-)
