    I HATE green beans! I've never really tried them, but I hate them.
    It's comments like these with the rabid fanboyism that make newcomers feel unwelcome here. It's okay if someone doesn't like Bing.

    If you read my post, nowhere did I indicate that I've never tried Bing. I said that I have not given it a real chance.

    In fact, I've used Bing numerous times. And I didn't like it.

    I made a post about green beans. Lighten up.

    Thanks for all the replies and advice so far!

    J4rrod: I have to admit that I hate...HATE Bing! I've always been partial to Google but, to be fair, have not given Bing a real chance. I'll take your advice and try it for a week or so and see what I think then.

    The reason it's so hard for me to let go of iTunes is that I watch a ton of movies and TV shows on my iPhone (I travel quite a bit for work). I usually download movies and convert to MP4 from various...*cough*...sources (or rip them from DVD) but a fair amount of the time it's just easier to download from iTunes, especially when I'm on the go.

    I just downloaded SurfCube and that seems to be an answer to IE so far.

    Again, after 5 years on iOS exclusively, it's hard to let go...even temporarily. I have my comfort zone of all my apps, I know where everything is and how to use it best. But every time I turn on the Lumia 900 I'm amazed at how nice it is! This week I'm going to try to go Lumia all the time *gulp* but it should be fun.

    I need to get an LTE sim for it. Everything I read tells me I should be able to have a sim provisioned for LTE on my current contract and should be able to then switch back and forth between the iPhone 4 and the Lumia 900.

    Ah, modern times!
    It sounds like you're dipping your toes in the water. For best results when trying something new I recommend going all in. Leave your old methods behind and start using the new methods 100%. This is how I approach it even with new versions of Windows, Office, Exchange Server, or whatever. Some people try to make the old system act like the new system because that's familiar to them. I suppose I can understand that approach if the new system is forced upon them, but if you're willingly going to a new system then go for it full force.

    For you, this means forgetting about Google and iTunes. Using your girlfriend analogy, your new girlfriend won't work out so great if you keep asking her to do things like your old girlfriend did!!!

    The bad:

    No screenshot function (I use this way more than one would expect on my iPhone)
    Just curious, what do you use the screenshot function for?

    Some websites imbed photos with coding that (for one reason or another) do not allow picture copy. Ebay does this. I find myself keeping pictures of certain items that I collect or wanting quick access to a series of photos from several auctions for comparison (rather than waiting for each page to load and having to save the links).

    Also, PDFs. For example, I wanted a quick access seating chart for the Arizona Cardinals games and just took a screen shot.

    Facebook pictures as well. Sometimes my wife posts a picture I like and it's just quick and easy to screenshot it rather than remind myself to ask her and have her email it or text it to me.

    ^hmm for facebook pictures you can "save to phone" if you view it through the browser or native facebook integration.

    This + 1. The built-in search function with Bing is very good. I don't miss Google search at all. In fact, I use the Bing app on my iPhone and iPad, and changed my default search engine to Bing on all my devices as well.

    Funny, I did the same. Loved the experience in Bing so much that my 4s and ipad now have Bing as default search engine.

    So you made an off-topic, snarky remark and you're telling everyone else to lighten up?

    I want to remind everyone to make relevant helpfully posts it is one of our forum rules.

    OP if you are a developer with an unlocked device you can take screen shots. If you don't want to spend the $100 to become a developer just hand in there for a while. The L900 is a very popular WP I would bet that it wont be long before someone cracks it open so you can jailbreak it.

    Well, the way you guys limply tell everyone to "get back on topic" without actually disciplining anyone, ignoring off-topic posts doesn't do anything either. I guess I don't know why I work myself up by coming to these forums anymore.

    If you have an issue with the something fill free to PM me. We can discuss it. There is also a report button. Fill free to use it. This post is off topic should I give you an infraction? We prefer to let people work things out themselves so everyone fills free to post as they wish as long as things don't get out of hand.
