    1 - NOTIFICATION CENTER!! (WITH CONNEXION TOGGLES)
    2 - Separate volume control
    3 - To be able to move the song with your finger and not just be able to Play and Pause!!
    4- File explorer
    5- To be able to save the app data on sd card (if not the whole app)
    6- Kids corner shouldnt need a password!
    7- Cortana should be available and fully functional
    8 - Apps should open FAST! its amazing how every single app needs time to load!
    9 - WP8 should be faster on devices with 512 mb of Ram like my Lumia 720
    10 - REAL MULTITASKING! NO MORE RESUMING EVERY SINGLE TIME
    11- a Microphone option in the keyboard, so u can speak instead of typing,life saver

    I would actually prefer some "stupid" updates than those which everyone else want.
    Example..support for MUCH MUCH MORE file types. I'm talking nearly every popular file type.
    Changing of the "theme" used by the phone completely - custom background, custom font (color, style, size..everything), tiles also.. everything!

    If they do that Ma Rio and put customisation first then it'll go the way of Android and lag up the system unless you buy a phone with expensive internals and legacy phones will have trouble with support....believe me running stock Android is drastically faster than with all the customisations

    All the things I can think off:

    1) Notification Center
    2) Ability to share any song, file, document from anywhere within the OS and by any 1st & 3rd party app by mail, Bluetooth and NFC
    3) Less restricted acces to the MicroSD card for 3rd party apps
    4) Ability to install apps on MicroSD cards
    4) Fast Resume for ALL apps a requirement
    5) Double Wide tiles for every WP8 device
    6) Ability to toggle the extra row with GDR3+ installed: 3 normal tiles for 4.5"+, 2 normal+1 small tile for 4.3" and normal 2 tiles for under 4.3" devices
    7) Different music and sound volumes
    8) Choice of more colors for the background of the phone : More than just Black or White
    9) Every app needs to be build FIRST on 512 MB devices then upscaled and expanded (if needed) for 1 GB and 2 GB devices.
    10) Every app needs to be built to run on 512 MB devices as BEST as they can anyways, even if that means a bit of lost functionality.
    11) The ability for tiles to be refreshed in UNDER 30 minutes with options: 1-5-10 minutes etc.
    12) Cortana would be awesome (the concept itself, not necessarily the name)
    13) Skype integration in People Hub
    14) Better Facebook integration (maybe)
    15) The keyboard need to be smaller or at least adjustable. See the gigantic keyboard on the Lumia 1520.
    16) More usability improvements for big screens. Multitasking a la Windows 8 while in landscape maybe?
    17) Internet Explorer 11, at least on WP, should support all the necessary standards that Google demands, so they'll have no more excuses in providing an official YT app.
    18) More timely app releases (obviously)
    19) Some sort of File Explorer
    20) (Dunno about this one) If 2G network could work faster for apps
    21) EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: Support the app at least as LONG as the OS itself is supported. WP7.x support ends in September 2014? If you can add any more features, do it. It will be still be officially supported for another year. Why shouldn't the apps be up to date? The same rule applies to WP8, whenever that time will come.

    - When sharing a picture, the Bluetooth option should be present even if BT is off.
    - Change song with volume long press
    - Volume to snooze the alarm / turn down to snooze the alarm - More alarm options
    - Using volume up and down to move the cursor when texting

    Read through some of the thread and agree with everything. One thing I didn't see though was to not be so bound 2 (pun intended) your computer. I don't wanna have to use my computer to do a simple stuff as change the name of a song. Or to create a playlist. I also wanna be able to create photo albums on my phone and move my photos to different albums. The OS feels very unfinished overall. Symbian was way better. Only reason I even bought a Windows Phone was because of Nokia. Only had Nokia my whole life, but next year I will have to say goodbye.

    why would one want WhatsApp to save music to the music folder? I don't think you can do that on any other platform.....

    I'm sure everyone has heard these complaints a thousand times, but some of the little things about my 822 just bug the crap out of me. I really like the fluidity of the OS, and I've found alternatives to missing apps that I use. These things really bother me:

    1 - Separate volumes. This needs to be addressed. Currently, there are two: in call volume, and everything else combined. It's annoying to have to turn down media volume, then forget to turn it back up so you can hear calls. I'd be happy if they just made the ringer volume independent, also.

    2 - "Settings" menu is not alphabetized. This is extremely annoying. I don't know why they didn't do this when they made the app list alphabetical.

    3 - No separators, headers, or any kind of grouping for the start screen. I know this was by design, for simplicity's sake, but after about 20 apps, you start forgetting where things are. I've found a work around for this by using the "HeaderTiles" app. Great little app, and it should be incorporated into the OS, in my opinion. Check it out if you don't know about it.

    4 - No ability to toggle the status bar at the top permanent.

    I really hope Windows Phone developers take a look at this thread as a reference.

    These are reasonable requests by reasonable people.

    I've read through a lot of this thread and arrived at the conclusion that what people want is an Android phone. All of the functionality above is currently available. It makes me question why people are persisting with WP, me included.

    It's because some of the complaints are valid for an OS like Windows Phone, and that people need some time to get used to Windows Phone.

    I just want the charms key to relplace search. That would solve a lot of problems at once.

    Toast notifications (especially if we get 20 or so in a row if we check our phone after a while) block the top part of the screen and we have to swipe each notification just so that we can access the top part of the screen. So if I got 20 messages when my phone was away, when I finally pick it up, I get 20 toast notifications IN A ROW and have to swipe each of them before I can access the top part of the screen

    I was wrong on my Nr 9 point. "Every app needs to be build FIRST on 512 MB devices then upscaled and expanded (if needed) for 1 GB and 2 GB devices."

    As Windows Phone 7 is still being officially supported for 10 more months, developers SHOULD, YES, target 512 devices as much as posible. They could try to optimise even for 256 MB devices. It may sound silly, but if an app/game could run on 256 MBs, you pretty much expect it to run brilliant on better equiped devices.
