    If you went in to settings and region language and put UK would it change the calendar settings perhaps?

    Before Mango every different artist I played on my phone that had a stock picture from Zune would automatically turn into the background pic on the music tile. Not anymore. Why?

    I don't know if this is a bug or just a fluke but I have dropped a couple contacts since my mango update. The first time I didn't notice it for probably days...who knows. I went to call my brother and all of his info was gone except his facebook info. Yesterday my wife's live tile had disappeared from my home page. I found her in the people hub but anything not on facebook was gone for her as well. No phone number, email address, fax number, etc. Kinda weird.

    Go to settings /speech. Scroll to bottom and uncheck Play Audio Confirmations. You may want to play with the Bluetooth pull down menu right below it and choose an appropriate setting for speech too.

    biggest complaint I have is that when using the virtual keyboard it randomly disappears when pressing keys. It seems to do this 5 or six times then all of a sudden it will start working fine.

    Also, when using xbox live, on the first page with my avater my gamer score is 20 gamer score less than my actual gamer score. But if you click achievements it shows the correct score. Anyone else having this issue?
    Ive suffered this a few times too jchapman01.

    Seems it's quite widespread.

    Possible Mango bug: keyboard not popping up when it should - xda-developers

    My keyboard sometimes drops when i'm typing texts.

    I've just recently realized that this is a problem for Mango's integrated Messenger: It seems that none of my contacts show up as live messenger contacts in the messaging hub.

    Lets say I have a friend named Taylor who has a fully fleshed out contact detail on my phone including his email/msn address taylor@hotmailorwhatever.com

    Even though Taylor is signed in to messenger, if I go to the messaging hub, I will not see him online (or any other contacts for that matter). If I log in to the desktop version of messenger and manually add Taylor to my contacts, a new seperate windows live contact will be created of him on my phone. Basically, the phone refuses to acknowledge Taylor's existing contact information in my phone and the only way I can get a contact to have all 3 switching options (SMS, Messenger, Facebook) is if I create a seperate Windows Live contact with their email address and then link it to he account. Which would mean if I wanted to flesh out my messenger list I need to manually create and link accounts for every single contact even though their msn email accounts are already a part of their existing Windows Live contact on my phone.

    I've not much coverage of this issue and for some the solution seems to be a hard reset? ugh...

    A couple things..
    -After mango, if I download more than one app in marketplace, I get a message saying that marketplace is unavailable at this time, try again later, error code blah blah blah. A mango bug?
    -Live tile in photo hub stopped working
    -A song stays forever paused and always drops down whenever using the volume key, regardless of the amount of time passed since listening to the song.
    -No new tile themes..I really thought that was a big one Mango was gonna add. It drives me crazy that there are no neutral colors like black, grey or white..I just don't get it
    -Can't customize alert tones
    -This might be a personal preference but no folders for apps? Wp7 is definitely intuitive but goes out of its way a little too much to be different, for better or for worse. A long alphabetical list of not just apps, but every single thing on the phone is one giant mess to me. Even the most basic of flip-phones has a "tools" menu or things that are categorized.
    -Very, Very limited customization
    -No separate keyboard options. You either have to listen to loud popping noises when typing or absolutely nothing at all. Of course you could turn the volume down, but that means the volume for EVERYTHING goes down, incoming calls, music, etc..
    -Can't set the lock screen time out for the wallpaper screen. You only get to look at your picture or wallpaper (the only personable customization on this phone) for about 5 seconds until the screen dims and shuts off.
    -Not enough settings in "settings".

    2 more things:
    -When pressing the phone tile, it defaults to history. You then have to push the little dialer icon to get the dial pad..Why must there be an added step in dialing a phone number?
    -No way to view battery status when viewing web pages.

    I installed an app the other day, and it must have pushed the amount of apps over the number required to change the view in the app list to included the search by letters option. I then uninstalled a couple of apps that I no longer use and it didn't go back to the list view without the letter search. Anyone else have this?
    10-13-2011 05:30 AM
  16. jdd77's Avatar
    Yes that just happened to me. The letters would go away when I uninstalled apps, then reappear when I downloaded more. I now have less than 40 apps and its still there. I don't know...

    Is there any way to see what applications are sucking up data? I would like to see which applications use the most data and turn those off.

    Have a wee lookie in Settings / Applications / Background tasks (Top of list) FriendOrDafoe.

    You can enable or disable specific apps from running in the background.

    That may be of help to you. :)

    The one thing that I've noticed that I don't like so much, is that in SMS messages, sometimes you'll get links, and when clicked on, they will open in IE9, which is fine. Before Mango though, if I had multiple SMS messages with links, each link I clicked on would open a new tab automatically. This is no longer the case. When you click a link in an SMS, it opens in IE9. If you click a different link from a different SMS, it opens in the same tab, opening up the new page. Sometimes I click on several different links as I'm going through my SMS's and would like the ability back to be able to click on each link and have them all open in seperate tabs. Then I can read the story, or view the content, and close the tabs individually as I'm finished with them.

    Can't use my phone as an alarm clock as other noises pop up during night.
    I'm not sure what phone you have, but I have the Samsung Focus, and if you put the phone in Vibrate mode, the alarm itself will still sound. Same with music volume, if you have the phone in Vibrate mode, and you press the Volume up button, the volume still goes up from 0-30, but no alert tones, ring tones, etc will sound, but if you launch Zune and start playing music it still has the sound. I've tested this with the alarm and it works. It will still sound according to the volume level you have it set to, just make sure it's in Vibrate mode so that calls, texts, emails, etc don't give off the alert tones.

    there's custom ringtones now, but still no custom notification/alert/alarm tones.
    Would like to use my own notification sounds for these, too...

    This is an odd one - when I press the search button to enter the bing search app, the background image is tiny, and up in the top left corner of the screen. The rest of the screen is black. Anyone else?

    Also, numerous app tiles, that have "live tile" capabilities go blank, and turn the colour of the theme I'm using. Such as, Facebook, IMDB, Birdsong.

    More fodder for the WP7 haters. Still, I've never heard that happen on iOS. Goes to show the benefits of locking down the hardware to software. I bet this is a driver issue.

    Hey guys I got a problem. After I did a forced Mango update on my HD7 my phone can't go a day without crashing and being stuck at the HTC screen. Forcing me to restore to factory settings. I know there probably isn't much I can do. But its getting frustrating.

    It seems to freeze up when I load People or something with texting.
