    I'll have to report back, I don't have any video on my phone.
    I have questions about Zune. If you have a playlist going and then you play a video that you have on your device (like a recording or one that was synced), can you resume the playlist where you left off? I'm also wondering the same with "shuffle all."

    My question is mundane but is Find on Page still in IE9. Heard rumors that it might not be there any longer.

    So after I connect to facebook. I don't see any of my contacts from facebook. Will this populate over time?
    To get Facebook chat, make sure you go to messenger.live.com and connect your account to Facebook and add contacts from Facebook or go into your Live Messenger program and do it from there. Also resync your Live and Facebook accounts on your phone (settings, email and accounts, tap and hold, sync). Then wait, should be working within a few hours.
    Got it to work. After you connect to your live ID, it automatically makes your status available. You must take yourself offline, then back to available, then BAM, FB contacts were there.

    Hey 1jaxstate1 one of my favorite things about this OS are the fluid animations found all over the UI, one thing I saw in a lot of the press review vids were the removal of a couple of them, namely the one where you're in an app and press the start button to go to the start screen, the start screen's tiles "swing" towards the screen like a door so to speak, (you know which one I'm talking about) but in the videos when they would press the start button, the start screen would just appear without an animation just BAM! It's there, you know? making it faster but i liked the animation lol. Is that animation present in this build?
    Ha, animations to enhance the experience vs speed of operation, Luis I completely agree with you but based on the feedback I get every day for the WPCentral app the preference split seems to be almost exactly 50/50

    Just finished installing on my Focus,... Wow!

    Everything is super slick and enhanced =) I LOVE the new bing additions, vision and music are extremely welcome and work very well.

    My only complaint so far is that they've removed the "Favorites" button from IE9. You have to go into the ... menu to access or add favorite pages now, a bit of an inconvenience for someone who constantly bounces between favorite websites =(

    I"m sure i'll get used to that though, overall it's a HUGE HUGE HUGE improvement in almost ever aspect. Sure there is more they could add/tweak, but there is so much great stuff here it's very hard to complain.

    Looking forward to the official release even more now!

    "There's a 3G toggle now!"

    What does that mean? I would like led notifications.

    I have a focus, so no led for me. The 3G toggle is where you can force the phone to use the 2g network. It saves battery life.

    I am not sure really how long it took me, I was busy while it was working. And yes I am a dev, I have yet to write an app but I work in the .Net studio everyday in my professional life and that is why I signed up to be one.

    Has the browser improved at all? Is it faster? Is there flash or html5? Have the rendering issues been fixed? Has MS done away with the font sized for the screen? I actually dont like that they did that.

    Has battery life changed? It's not very good right now and I don't feel like buying an extended battery.

    Has music/videos app undergone any improvements? Can we finally delete YouTube and other videos from the history? Are there more options like sound enchancers and replaying songs?

    Any visual changes to the market?

    Last Question (for now): How is the turn by turn navigation?

    I've read that it doesn't automatically read to you and I'm really hoping there is an option for it or that there is one when the official version comes out. The other is that it doesn't recalculate? Is that true?

    Has anyone else with Mango noticed how amazingly responsive 3rd party apps are now!? They demoed this separation of UI input from the main app thread. Even the Facebook app (which is now mostly redundant) is nice and responsive. I didn't notice how much of an improvement it was until I put my Mango device side by side with one running Nodo.

    On wifi, new options? Does the phone use the wifi over the cellular now? I hate how the phone tries to use the cell signal and not wifi.

    No, you can search the net, it is known problem (xda forums for example). I turned off data roaming and it works mostly great now, but I tried netflix and it would not use my wifi and I am in the same room as the wifi, full signal, and the ipad and playbook runs fine. It is something in WP7 that tries to use either/or and not just full wifi as android phones and blackberries work fine on it.

    I didn't even realize they were going to "fix" this, but I had a very pleasant surprise after upgrading to Mango. I was having to put in a pin every time I unlocked the phone due to my companies exchange policy, and now I can set it as long as 1 hour. That was killing me though it was still worth using WP7.

    They also appear to have sped up the transitions which is nice, before it looked nice but was a tad slow for my taste.

    So, people go into the WiFi settings. Is there anyway to pin the WiFi on/off to the start screen?!
