thanks folks. Don't want to clutter this thread with my problem. I ensured d_WMDM plugin was checked (it was) and changed a few cables (including the original Nokia cable). No go. I can see the phone fine in Windows Explorer and the Windows phone app, but not in MM. Maybe somebody can save the device settings from within MM plugin and make it available. It probably won't work, but maybe worth a try.Did you try a different Sync cable just in case yours is bad?
I wouldn't hold my breath for Chrome -- Google has made no secret of their intent to ensure that Google services don't play well with Windows Phone.
If only the Yelp app didn't suck :/ That is one of my main problems
It is pretty brutal, the whole reason I started using Yelp in its infancy was the ability to search by map viewable area - even that is missing.
Mint --> https://www.pageonce.com / Pageonce - Money & Bills | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)
I used Mint a lot on Android but actually prefer Pageonce now that I've discovered it. I have all bills and stock information in there too, not just bank accounts.
There is also a RedLaser app. http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/redlaser/8fbeb777-a17c-4afd-b880-deac88ed86ca
