    Thanks for the reply. I just tried it again, having both with and without head phones, and it was exactly as you described it rsmiley0. I don't know what happened I first tried it though.
    Others have reported this issue.


    Also, how do you scan DVD covers? I've done QR codes and tags, but I can't scan a DVD cover. I tried it with the film Star Trek.
    You should just be able to press the eye button and under semi decent lighting, put the cover in view. I did this with a bunch of objects. Even did it with a water bottle! If it can get some words, it usually can get an accurate result.

    Got my invite too. Went through the update process. I must say I have never had to click in that many places to get permission to download the update. They made me acknowledge in many different ways that I could brick my phone and that I am voiding my warranty and a whole bunch of other things. I handled it like most EULAs and clicked all the check boxes and clicked on the Accept button. 3 hours or so later I have Mango.

    Absolutely worth the effort.

    Does mango offer file explorer capability through USB in this beta version. Also, any way to direct connect to Outlook?

    Some observations.

    So far all of the non-approved apps I've tried to run have been automatically delelted. These are things like the registry editor and the HTC Touch Explorer and my Checvron ringtone generator.

    I also found one odd thing regarding voice recognition. I can send an SMS by dictating the message, but I cannot do the same in an email. Considering that they are similar types of events I would have thought I could dictate an email as well.

    I use a lock screen image with transparency and the image is a bit messed up. The transparent part of the image has duplicates my lock screen on it in somewhat random locations. As soon as I beging to move the image upwards the transparent part becomes transparent and all looks normal again.

    If anyone is running Mango on their Verizon Trophy, can you confirm that you can't receive MMS picture messages?

    Speaking of notifications, I have a group pinned to my start screen, and I had a missed call from someone in that group and the tile said "missed call" with the callers name on it.

    Asked a friend to send me a picture and I never got it. No notification, no message, nothing. Using an HTC Tropy, if that answers your question. So it's obviously a bug.

    Anyone know of the release cycles of the beta updates. Is it once a month, or is this it until the final release, which I would find to be ridiculous. I'm really wanting to see the twitter integration. I'm a tweet fiend.

    Well, I can not say for sure, but looking back on the Release cycle that I watched before WP7 was released. These Beta's (SDK and phone OS) will not be compatible with the final release, which makes sense. What they did when WP7 went to RTM; they put out the "final" SDK tools. So, if following that principle, the devs are going to need the RTM Mango release of both the SDK and the phone OS to do the final development on their apps prior to the release of Mango.

    Just speaking as a tech geek. :)

    I can confirm the mms picture bug as well. Is it just an issue with the trophy or is it all phones?

    You should be able to send yourself an MMS to test. Just tried it and received the photo/message on my Surround after about 10 seconds.

    As soon as I tried to fire up dfrouter I got a message saying something to the effect that Microsoft had decided it was evil and then the program was gone. I have an HD7.
