    Had my lumia about a week now.........Ive come from blackberry - so the first few days were a bit of shock - but Im getting there now.....

    Just a couple of things

    1. Ive created custom ring tones - using nokia ringtone maker - pretty easy - however it doesn't appear to work for texts - can I create a custome text sound from a song ?

    2.When scrolling through 'people' is there a way to quickly send a text to that person.....as there is in Blackberry ???

    3.All my work colleagues have iphones - is there a killer app I can show them to prove I was right to go WP ?

    Custom ringtones for texts should be coming with the next update which began rolling out at various places. And just click on the persons name and there is an option to text.

    In fact every app looks beautiful in WP and it becomes killer itself. Show them myTube and such youtube apps where you can scroll over the video and stuff. Other than that yes the Camera, or the colors!

    You should. When you tap on a contact, you should see a 'text' option.

    1. Yes
    2. Click person, click Text SMS, which is after the call option.
    3. For me it's not a certain app, it's the live tiles.

    Not really. Just make sure the numbers are saved under 'mobile', and not under 'home' or 'work'.
