    I like that we can easily delete multiple emails, however I'd like to see it work identically to Android.

    On Android, I can click the check boxes off to the left, but I can also tap the email itself to read the email (and verify if this is something I really want to delete), then back out to the inbox screen and complete the deletion.

    However in WP7, once I bring up the multiple delete check boxes, I cannot tap to view the email.

    Random, repeat, and heart rating are all there already. Tap on the album art while the music is playing and the icons will appear.

    It definitely should be more conspicuous. I had to find it by accident.
    Thanks! I never saw this. Now we only need SmartDJ for it to be comparable with the Zune HD. Sync or Download Podcasts is definitely another feature I would like to see.

    Smart Dialing needs to be on the list. Windows Mobile back from the MPX200 and it was one of the great things on the platform in my mind. Scrolling through a long list takes too long, search spelling out the name on the qwerty is slower than the old smartdialing, and voice search doesn't work in loud environments (and doesn't always work in small environments).

    More landscape support...this deals with apps too, but on phones with keyboards (the Quantum, and eventually the HTC 7 Pro), this can be frustrating.

    Tethering over USB and WiFi officially...we pay for our data, let us use it.

    Not a complaint with the OS...but no chat apps should be fixed.

    Test Reflow in IE!!! Zooming in on a page shouldn't result in horizontal scrolling! Resive the text like Opera Mobile did before.

    USB Storage Mode, even if the files cannot be accessed by the OS (but it would be nice if they could be)

    Full Exchange Support like WM 6.x (searching Corporate Directory on <Exchange 2007, syncing of tasks, etc.)

    Power settings...allow me to leave the display on if plugged in like WM 6.x did.

    Allow snoozing at different intervals rather than just 5 minutes for calendar items.

    Custom Ringtones please

    Made the switch from Blackberry to WP7 my device is the HD7. Love both. I talk 4000 minutes monthly as a result, phone functions are important to me. That said here is my list.

    Visual Voice mail.

    Access to the "phone keypad" when in People screen, Profiles screen, Text screen and Messaging Conversations screen.

    Smart Dialing.

    Flash support.

    Ability to pin WiFi and Bluetooth tiles to start screen.

    Tap once to place cursor where you want it to fall, tap twice to highlight a word.

    UPS and FedEx package tracking apps.

    Concerning Call History. Each person should have a "sub history" so we don't see each and every incoming and outgoing or missed call on the Call History Main Page. If I need to see the trail of calls for a particular contact I can go into "their" history to view previous calls. For example, if I'm playing phone tag with someone I don't need to see their name on my Call History Page 8 or 9 times, just the last time we tried to contact each other.

    Thank you for allowing me to post my wish list. Love WP7 OS

    People Hub : Twitter Support. Allow me to chose what FB info to see. Ability to save photos posted by friends. Indication of and the ability to read responses to my updates or posts I responded to. Quicker updating of the hub - sometimes it takes 30 seconds just to download a few updates. The 'Recent' screen is kinda useless..maybe use that to display the responses I mentioned previously.

    Photo Hub: Ability to save photos posted by friends. Post to Twitter integration.

    Email: Conversation view. Black background with white lettering. Choice of auto-downloading pictures. Better integration with Gmail as far as starring, deletion. Viewing emails in Sent folder. Flagged and Urgent messages *remain* in respective views until un-flagged or marked not urgent. Outlook accounts get the ability to sync by push during certain times and scheduled sync at other times just like in WinMo 6.1

    Me Hub: Twitter integration.Me hub should be integrated into People hub in my opinion.

    MarketPlace: Fix the scrolling/lag issues and the crashes. New apps should be listed first in every section.

    Calendar: The hub tile is too austere, needs an image of sorts. Month view needs to have the appointment descriptions more visible or use color coded bars based on 'personal', 'work' and other user created definitions so we can quickly and easily determine what days are booked in month view. In month view, clicking on the day should bring up a list of the appointments for that day only, not the view of all past and current appointments..or even a list of the appointments displayed under the calendar.

    Music/video hub: The hub itself should be the double hub on the start screen with the ability to display a transition of user selected album art or Zune band art. Higher resolution background images. Icons of past and paused videos should be smaller in History view.

    Maps: Faster performance. Street view, integrate the compass, bus schedules, contacts address integration, save favorite places.

    Notifications should remain persistent until they are addressed.

    Apps need to save state in a better manner. I am tired of seeing that 'Resuming' notice.

    Custom tones for ringer, text, email and all notifications.

    Individual volume adjustments for ringer and music.

    Auto correction for every instance where the keyboard is used.

    It seems that every time I turn off my phone or leave the house, it forgets the password to my home wireless. Is there any way to store this password and make it connect automatically when it sees it is in range?????? If not this is a MUST have feature, more important than copy and paste!

    I've never had this problem, nor have I heard of anyone else having this problem. My HD7 connects to my home wireless network automatically every time. I entered the network key once and haven't had to do it since.

    I also never have this problem with my Samsung Focus. It is connected to a WPA2/Personal Linksys router. I know that other wireless devices have had problems with this router asking for the password randomly, but that was an IPhone4, and intermittently the Iphone 3G. It's odd that this happens with certain devices and routers.

    I am sure some of this has been said already but I'm just putting in my list

    OS In general:
    Ability to use Custom Ringtones and Notifications
    Customized Theme besides light and dark background ( ability to use pictures ) also more color options for the buttons, (black would of been fine if i could of used yellow buttons , pittsburgh fan).
    Ability to take snap shots
    Alarm goes off even if the phone is on vibrate ( woke up late multiple times because of this)
    Need to fix the scrolling on browsing the web, most sites I've been to and there is a scroll bar, I am unable to use it.


    Zune:
    Needs an EQ
    Different volume sets based on speaker and headphones
    Longer time on the lockscreen playback buttons (currently if I don't touch it in about 2 seconds, it goes away)

    Desired apps:
    Pandora (I really don't like last.fm or slacker)
    Working Messanger app ( I don't see why microsoft cannot make a windows live messanger themselves, the only one out right now doesn't work at all.)
    Bank of America App (really miss this )

    I'm sure I'll have more but this is it for now =D

    Gah! If you flip from one song to the next too fast multiple times, the music + videos hub will lock up and require a reboot.

    I find quite a strange issue, not sure if it's just me, with sound when playing music and then playing a game. Sometimes when I pause the music and go into a game (OMG for example) there is no music playing - SFX is present however. Should I close the game and start playing music from Zune again the volume is much lower than it normally is. Instead of having my volume level on 1-5 through earphones, I am forced to turn it up to 10-15 unless I reboot the phone. Once rebooting the phone, sound is normal with Zune and music is fine in games.

    I would love a "How much data you have used this month" statistic somewhere so one can keep track of bandwidth usage. I am limited to 1GB a month on Three and it seems as though the WP is much more Internet demanding than Android or iOS (with me anyway).

    No sound when capturing video is fairly irritating. Had an office Christmas party last Friday and shot some film, only found out afterwards that no audio is captured. Not sure how I missed this. Lastly, we should be able to have the WiFi to be continuously on if desired.

    .

    the ATT My Wireless App has a feature in there that tracks your data for the billing cycle

    Also when you get a new phone, you always use a lot of data from the start because your buying new apps, your setting up your apps, and it's always more fun to play with it when you first get it.

    re: sound I've experienced that too and I've read about others experiencing it as well. Hopefully it will be solved when Microsoft addresses separating the volume controls.

    I also want data (and call time) counter built into the OS. The ATT app is slightly delayed from what I understand.

    I also want the persistent wifi.

    Password protection for Marketplace transactions. My son already bought me Rocket Riot while I wasn't looking. Good game though so I wasn't too upset. Well atleast in game purchase have to go back to the Marketplace else I'd have to worry about a repeat of the $65 smurfberry purchase on the IPad.

    I've posted this in a few other places, but I figured I'd submit this for your addition to the list:

    A Holistic "MyPhone-esque" data transfer from one phone to the next: a singular, simple, and superior customer transition of data (including text messages, which can't currently be transferred via zune; I was able to transfer a few from my jack to my quantum by manually saving each one to the SIM card, but that's NOT a real solution) from one Windows Phone to the customer's next Windows Phone, that comes standard on the Phone, would be a HUGE help, and would increase the longevity of my relationship with and use of these phones. It also makes sense with their vision, which seems to be for each person to easily access and express their Windows persona/data anytime anywhere, making the phone (as well as the pc, the xbox, etc.) simply a channel or medium (dare I say, a "window?") than it's own entity. If the focus is shifting away from just the different physical products to the customer's data and life with and through different "Windows" (xbox, pc, phone, etc.), then something to help improve and streamline the transition from old phone to new phone seems to me be just as important as streamlining the transition from phone to pc to xbox to phone, etc..

    I believe that is Microsoft's overall goal, as it developed the MyPhone service (myphone.microsoft.com). At this time, the service doesn't fully support WM7 (only contact backup), but it basically is supposed to backup all your data, and have it all replicated and available for web access without your device via your myphone portal. I believe that was the whole Kin "experiment" as well. Everything is moving "to the cloud" as Microsoft likes to advertise. I also agree that if they perfect this service, and the devices simply act as a means for accessing all the data (and store an "offline" copy of the data in the phone), it will service all their users better and create a loyal customer base that depend on their devices to access the data.

    (Sorry for the excessing use of the quotation marks, but it was at the expense of sounding too much like an advertisement).

    This is good stuff but posting it here only isn't enough, there's gotta be a way to send all this feedback directly to MS and the WP7 teams or they'll never know.

    There's a free app in the marketplace I was told about My App Idea iirc, you can post these things and vote on fixes/ideas right on the phone and I think (though the app isn't made by MS) that the feedback gets to them in the end. Or at least someone at WPCentral if possible could pass this info on somehow.

    I've been a proud and impressed owner of a WP7 phone now for about a month. The more I use my "Samsung Focus" I find myself more and more convinced that I made the right decision by moving away from my old BB. After going through all the posts in this space I find that most of my wanting were addresses in a way or another but I still would like to add one more. When receiving a message on WP7 a toast notification gets displayed on the screen for sometime but then it disappear when the screen turns off. If i am away from my phone this becomes an issue since the phone doesn't give me any indication that there is a message waiting for me when the screen is off. It would be really nice to have some sort of visual indication to continue alerting me. It could be something as simple as blinking Windows logo in the bottom where the home button is. I know that this COULD and COULD NOT work based on the hardware you have (Samsung vs HTC vs LG) but if the hardware is capable I think it would be a nice integrated feature that will add to the OS already existent elegance.

    You do realize that you can call *3282# and get more up-to-date data usage via a text message, right? I have it saved to a contact called Data and have the tile on my home screen. When it loads the contact I just have it call the number. Not the most elegant solution but it works. It won't work on unlimited data accounts and this is only for ATT but I'm sure other carriers have similar service numbers.
