    Welcome Richard! Are you in Scandinavia by any chance? I had a co-worker by that last name there and hence the question. What device are you using? I am currently using a Lumia 640.

    Hey there, Microsoft & Windows lovers!
    I'll make this introduction short for you.
    Two weeks ago, I finally made the move and left Google. For real.
    I never thought I'd do that, but I did that, and to be honest, I am very
    happy with Microsoft and their services, and especially with my Lumia
    1320. Seriously - 1 GB of RAM yet it still runs smooth as hell, and that's
    just incredible!

    Oh, and the name is Shawn, in case you're wondering.
    Glad to be here and glad to be a fan of Microsoft.
    Hello Shawn, glad to know that you dumped Scroogle and its services.

    I too have dumped Scroogle and nearly all its rubbish services, including Search, one-and-a-half years ago. I'm happy, enjoying it and I'm not missing anything because all MS services are n times better than the equivalent Scroogle c**p and I am also comforted by the fact the MS never spies on what I do with the MS services for their profit.

    The only Scroogle service I still use is YouTube, but that is unavoidable because YouTube's the only good video streaming service IMO.

    Yeah, I had enough with Google. I still use YouTube to listen to music and watch videos.

    Sounds tiring. I have two Outlooks (one @live and one @outlook) and a couple of Gmails and Yahoos that I don't ever look at anymore and can't remember the passwords to. My main Gmail no longer exists so I stick with my two Outlooks...one is personal and the other is my everything else.

    Well this second hotmail account wasn't supposed to be used anymore. I accidentaly signed up with it when i was setting up my phone, and now i don't wanna mess around changing it again.
    This outlook one is like Master account, using it to control the other two. One gmail is yt and pretty much everything else associated with google and forums like theese, other one for my facebook, and the third one also for the facebook, but the fake one i'm using for CS.
    Now see, they all have their purpose.

    Haha didn't say they didn't have their uses. But it still sounds incredibly tiring. Two accounts is good for me, haha.

    Before I moved to Microsoft, I had the LG G4.
    Welcome, I hope you can find what you need, WP is a GREAT OS, fast, smooth and the Only thing it suffers from is apps in some area or another but, there are plenty of 3rd party options if you cant find what you need, and you'll be shocked on how well the browser works to fill the gap.

    The G4 is a really nice phone, wish they made that phone with WP on it...I think I would jump on that in heart beat.

    To be honest, the apps do not bother me.
    I only need some Microsoft applications, Facebook and Messenger, Twitter and Instagram.
    Also waiting for Periscope and Layout.

    Exactly. Not for profit. Not for the government either. It's only with your permission and they do it to improve their services to you. Google does it in order to fit advertising to you so they can make more money. It is, after all, what they started the business for, and they are good at it.

    As far as email addresses go, I hired Team Hillary Clinton to set me up with a Private Email Server. I hate to have to carry 2 phones.

    It's even worse for individual operating systems. 80% of iOS fanboys are actually psychopaths and murderers. True story.
