    Although I am having a problem syncing to my laptop. It is having a hard time reading my phone, the device driver keeps failing.
    Ok, the device is loaded on my laptop, yet when I plug in the USB cable and open my computer. The phone is nowhere to be found, I have pics I would like to load onto my phone.
    The bluetooth does not work on m, Thanks. y laptop, so USB is my only option. Any help would be appreciated. :)

    for now, you're going to have to use the Zune software. Import the photos into Zune, then connect your phone to the computer and sync the photos over.

    I have a lemon for a laptop. The screen is now completely black yet its on. I will load Zune once I am up and running again. Now I am also curious, with all this talk about Mango. If it becomes available as well as other updates to the phone. How do we get it,do they send a message to your phone? Thanks again WB for helping me out. :)

    Joe, when I plug my Zune in, the software automatically opens. After my device is logged in, the software tells me if there a device update available. I'm guessing it will be the same for the phone.

    You can also go to settings, scroll to the bottom and you're phone will say whether any updates have been found.

    Thanks again WB, once I get my laptop back I will install Zune. I assume from the book I got with the phone, it will come from online Windowsphone.com. Hopefully there won't be any issues from there.

    If you tap and hold on a text a menu will pop up that gives you the option to forward.

    I'm not sure if windowsphone.com will have the Zune software or not. You can go to zune.net and the software is available there.

    I awaiting my new laptop so I can load Zune. But I have noticed Any pics that are in my pics from Windows live or mobile up loads from Windows live. Those pics cannot be deleted from the phone itself. Am I doing something wrong or am I correct in my assumptions. That those pics can only be managed from Zune.
    I somehow got a duplicate pic that I cannot delete that's how I discovered the problem. Thanks all :)
    One addition to this post. And I know its a stupid question. Do I have to use a Windows live account with a windows phone?
