    I was talking about the delay for the text to appear.
    Oh okay. :-)
    I'm assuming this can't be changed. Seems to be a "feature" of Mango. I was thinking that could be a problem because I use my phone as a clock, but I suppose an extra second of waiting isn't a problem for me.

    I still have yet to see how to have my texts read to me.
    Go to settings then tap on speech. On the bottom of the screen is a a drop down list titled "Read aloud incoming text messages." Your options are:

    off
    always on
    Bluetooth and headsets
    Bluetooth only
    wired headset only

    Bluetooth only is set by default.

    I like that we can now see the status of the battery and how much is left in a percentage, but I'm surprised there are no apps to let us see battery info, I had a good look in the marketplace but no joy, I suppose it could be because battery status is Mango only and it only officially started to roll out yesterday developers could now make some battery apps.

    How do I exit an application in Mango?

    I installed TuneIn and the application does not even show in the list of active apps (after launched) when I press and hold the back arrow.

    Back arrow out of the app, to reopen it click below the pause button after hitting the volume rocker. Also remember pause = stop since there is no stop button for music.

    Two things I have noticed,

    1. I can use the cut and paste feature to do searches meaning that if highlight something I want to search (addresses, etc) all I have to do is highlight it and hit the search button and it automatically puts it in the search bar for me. I don't even need to copy it first, just highlight and search. Kinda cool.

    2. When I go to unpin something from the start menu, all the tiles underneath start moving around. It is kind of useless but it looks cool.

    That is all for now but will update with more. I know the highlight and search thing is probably not well know.

    It should, mine reads the name of the sender if they are in my address book.

    Text from "so and so" read it...etc

    Settings is an app with a gear as an icon, and speech is a menu option in that app.

    Press and hold the home button and the 'voice search' option comes up. Say things like 'open Angry Birds' and voil...Angry Birds opens :)
    That was pre-mango. You could use it for making calls too. I rarely used it though.

    I only have a bible app and the weather channel had a tasks program but now the to dos on the hotmail calendar will sync to your calendar not as good as direct sync with outlook but better than a separate app that does not puull from desktop to phone. Progress BTW theres a microsoft site to vote on suggestions for changes in the next version(s) theres an article here at WP Central go check it out and vote.

    Now that is cool. The highlight a word then press search feature is handy and a nice find!

    Oh yeah.. my bad.. it does. I asked my friend to txt message me so I can test it and he texted me using his google voice number, which wasn't in my phone.

    Yeah, this feature is awesome, very useful while driving.

    A nice one I found is that you can even use voice commands while IN A CALL. THIS IS BOSS. Instead of having to push a number when using an automated voice system, I can just hold start and say "press 3" or w/e. It's official...I'm on Windows Phone FOREVER....and it can only get better from here.....

    Also, I have my work iPhone 4 next to me and I've pulled both from the charger. Both have WiFi on and the battery from Arrive is lasting longer (it seems).

    Now, hopefully the people on the other line won't think you're talking to them :D
