    My notifications under the Me tile no longer updates. It just sits there and say "looking for updates" [also updated about 30 minutes]

    After receiving three @ messages, the me tile is still showing a @ message from four messages ago on the me tile. After about 30 minutes, the old @ message dissappeard. But the new ones didn't appear.

    I have a person from the people hub pinned and friends with them on Facebook. Their tile isn't updating either. [about 30 minutes, it updated]

    I noticed that the "extras..." is still missing from the camera and picture views. I thought that was supposed to be coming back.

    Has anyone got the "Turn By Turn" working properly?

    I've still got to tap the screen to see/hear what's coming next.... Which isn't very handy when driving, and especially when coppers are around :s

    I used turn by turn once going home, just to see if it work. It did for about 5 minutes, but stopped updating. I think it was due to AT&T wacktackular 3G service.

    Could it be region locked then with regards to Turn By Turn?

    As both Beta builds haven't been like a generic "SatNav" giving me heads up to turn left X amount of yards before turn (At least that's what I class as Turn by Turn)

    Looks like the podcast can be downloaded directly to the phone.
    I also notice that if you go to settings>>people you can filter to include twitter contacts but even I selected them the do not appear so I guess they will appear until the last release.

    Just to let Trophy users know, my Trophy can receive picture messages again. I wasn't able to in the last version of the beta.

    I'm liking the mms with Trophy now!

    I also noticed in the Xbox or games hub, the avatar animations have been updated a little. Shaking your phone will now knock down your avatar and eventually he will get pissed off and stomp his foot which "cracks" your screen. Saw this on video a while back and haven't been able to duplicate where he "hides" on a different page in the games hub or pushes your view to another page. Still is nice though!

    He usually hides after the prop animation (if you have one) after he first appears if you don't do anything. (On the screen with friends and message tiles)

    If you slide left to look for him and back quickly, he will sneak bacwards back onto the screen.

    It usually takes 3-4 shakes for him to get really pissed off, and then he pulls your menu's about and storms off.

    I just love all this nonsense. :)

    PS keep screen lock longer than a minute or just tap the screen to stop it locking

    *New animations (i.e. opening people hub, and going from bing vision then pressing back... the bing-image-of-the-day plops down)
    *Twitter & LinkedIN Integration
    *When using facebook chat, people's status (available, away, etc) match the color of your theme
    *Bing icons are larger
    *music and videos hub... The play all icon has changed
    *now if you have music files saved on SkyDrive, you can open and listen to them from the office hub :)
    *If you're texting, throw in one of these: (a), (w), (p), (o) ...etc, or just use any letter in between parenthesis. It comes up as a cute little icon ^.^



    Those are all my findingd thus far ^

    I don't know if it was in previous build, but i see background tasks option under settings. GoTo: Settings > Applications > Background Tasks (Did anyone notice this?) (i guess name is pretty obvious with what it's all about) ;)

    It was in the last build. Doesn't do anything since none of the apps are built for background use. I'm sure that'll change in the next few months.

    I read this from someone else the other day before I updated to the most recent mango build and I noticed it was in the build I had at the time (I think 7661). So this was added in with Bing Vision and not on the most recent build, it used to "bounce" when it hit the bottom though I think so the animation has changed slightly.

    hmm i was hoping to see specific people's twitter and linkedin status updates on thier "what's new" tab in their contact, but so far it's just facebook

    i see the twitter and linkedin updates in the what's new tab of the people hub however...it's actually very cluttered now with all my twitter updates
    There is a way to do this i found it just tapping around.

    Under whats new under people or the group is line that says all accounts. (its colored with the theme). If you tap that then it opens up a filter menu. You can then filter which type of item you want to see.

    My only complaint with this update so far is there is no battery warning. I was on the phone for about 45 minutes and my phone didn't give me any warning sounds or anything at all. It just shut off. I don't know if this has something to do with the battery saver being on. It was really kind of annoying because I hadn't realized my battery was so low.

    Other then that I like the update. I am not a twitter user and I have never used linkedin so this update didn't add to much for me. I am still waiting for custom ringtones.

    I have never used the Battery Saver feature, but I do still get the 'Battery Is Critically Low' warning as normal in build 7712 of Mango.

    There have always been battery warnings. Custom ringtones was a part of the first mango beta. WPC did a how to article.

    I have had my phone shut off before in the middle of a call too with no warning sound, very annoying. This was on Trophy running NoDo.


    Another thing I just noticed was that when unlocking the phone, the clock now takes about 0.5 seconds to appear on the lock screen when it used to be instant.

    Do you guys recommend wating for next windows7 phone from sprint, or will the mango update on the Arrive suffice? The lack of a front facing camera isn't a deal breaker. My contract is up in two months and i'm trying to do ample research before 'pulling tha trigger'.

    Custom Ringtones have been in since the Beta started. Change the genre of a file that's under 39 seconds and 1mb to Ringtone and then sync it to the phone. You can then choose it as ringtone.

    The emoticons are sent in "text" form to who ever you're texting, unless their phone converts them to emoticons. Just incase you were worried about that.

    Anyways, I personally like them, they're not outrageous and yellow like normal emoticons. They flow with the text.

    Oh yeah I know, but I just prefer looking at the text smilies myself. I haven't even seen them yet. I may like them, but I commented out the code in WebOS when they added it in WebOS 1.1.0.

    Did the tiles wiggle before mango. When you are moving around tiles, it wiggles now. Is this new or did I just overlook it.
