    Weren't we supposed to be able to attach any kind of file to emails? I'm still getting the option to only attach pictures!
    go to outlook on IE,switch to PC site,select the thread you need to reply to,attach the docs using the file picker!Yes,its still not straight forward but atleast its there

    Well,there seems to be a workaround for this now,go to outlook on IE,switch to PC site,select the thread you need to reply to,attach the docs using the file picker and voila...!
    Nice try, but that is in no way a solution to this issue. If I'm going to do that why use the built in client at all?

    Is there any way to disable an app in the action center but still get the toast? AFAIK I'm only able to disable it completely or to have it on the AC, but I want the old behaviour for some apps.

    I did admit it wasn`t a straight forward solution,neither am I trying to defend MS here fyi. It works if you aren`t in a position to use your laptop, when you are on the go.

    At other times,if you do have the time and have a ton of mails to reply to and you need to attach docs to some of them,how about doing that on a laptop,just my opinion.

    Agreed. Slightly less cumbersome as using IE is to use the Office app and share via email the document from there.

    in 8.1 where has the option to keep wifi always on gone?
    I was looking for that too as the wifi turns off shortly after the screen goes off on 8.1 and I can't see an option to keep it on like there was in 8.0.

    I love it. Storage sense is awesome, Cortana is very nice, notification center is a godsend, swipe keyboard is great, I'm ecstatic to see backups include app data and it's nice having so much more control. Only problems are that Xbox games still doesn't show Xbox one games, and Bing rewards still isn't integrated in our Bing/Cortana app.

    Also seems like no matter what I disable or set in battery saver, Cortana eats my battery alive on my Lumia 1020 (strangely, that doesn't happen on my Lumia 520).

    I do like WP8.1 but I do think the Dev preview was released to soon. Not everything is ready to go, the lock screen and apps for example are not ready and hurt the 8.1 experience. It should have been all at once.

    Try attaching a doc file to an existing email thread and report back. Because when someone asks me to send them a document I don't reply with a totally separate email, does any business work that way? Complete and utter disgrace this functionality is not there in the 4th year of this platforms existence. Again they have concentrated on fluff like Cortana instead of addressing real problems with this OS.
    You are right about it. I agree with you. But it is a small step. Now the only needs is to replace the function of the attach button from going to gallery to go to a menu where it asks what do you want to attach.

    Just go to appstudio.windowsphone.com and sign up. Then download the Preview For Developers app from the store. No unlocking needed.

    Disappointing update, just another "we ran out of time" one.
    Too little, too late (and too much bugs) to be on par with other OS.
    And worst thing is even WP now lags sometimes (games hub, start screen, etc).
    That's only just after updating. It gets faster with use.

    You just need the Windows 8 phone, no PC necessary, and no SDK necessary either.
