    lots of misinformation here, time to correct it.

    Text reflow in IE
    ..
    text reflow isn't needed as the text auto resizes to the screen. I don't have problems reading anything as a result.
    - .
    - Ability to combine tiles to remove some clutter. I mean, I could put "Me", "People" and "Facebook" all into one tile, that would then take me to a separate tile page to choose between them. I'd like that very much, since I'm kind of OCD about my home screen. It'd also give me a chance to bundle up the apps I rarely use under one tile, so I don't have to scroll through the huge list just to get them.
    its already like this.

    Wireless zune sync, without plugin would be sweet. the Zune hd had this but not so much for mango. I'd love to get that back.
    wireless Zune sync has been present since even before NoDo.

    I personally would just like to see public transit guidance in Bing and Skype. yahoo integration may be possible since MS is considering buying them again.

    I'd like to see like everyone else some more customization, ability to change the size of tiles and the info they display, and next time I hit the volume key and the volume menu drops down the ability to swipe over to toggle 3g WiFi etc. I'd like to be able to select different backgrounds instead of just black and white, I personally think lives background would look great on wp7. Obviously major bug fixes with mango, there def more and ill add on to my post when I think of anything.

    No, it doesn't. On Android, once you pinch zoomed in, double tap, the text is reflown to fit the screen so that you don't have to pan around.

    Auto zoom via double tab is not nearly enough.

    Another thing Tango has to improve on is customization, especially the home screen. I mean, no wallpaper? That's just pathetic.

    Telenav from sprint, on all smarphones, is turn by turn. Works fine for me.

    I want:

    Custom alerts and email tones, for each person to like the ringtones can be done.
    Led alerts for everything and customizable.
    Email option to download html automatically.
    Able to attach saved office files to email, NOT just skydrive links. (frankly any file to be attached)
    Email group by email senders, NOT the title which doesn't work sometimes.
    Video settings need to be saved on exit, not go back to vga settings.
    Better bing searches, it misses stuff and locations google gets every time.
    Able to create custom folders or collections in the pictures hub, not just "everything there".

    Obama is well liked by the tea party. See, I can bold things too, doesn't make it true. :)

    How is what ie9 did different from what safari did? There are tons of complains about the lack of text reflow on the iphone. Luckily, alternative browsers are widely available over there.

    Now, maybe you got a big screen phone and maybe you are younger than me, so I can perfectly understand it's not an issue for you. But I got old eyes and so are a lot of people. I find both iPad and Macbook air lacking in term of text reflow (command+ is not as convenient as pinch zoom), are you telling me it's easier to read things in ie9 than on those devices?

    y en cojos would u bring Obama into this? that was just idiotic, I have an HTC Arrive at the standard sized screen. I actually can read better in IE9 than I could in opera mobile on my TP2 which had text reflow.

    I want it to tell me if I am going to need an umbrella for the day or not. Joking of course, but I want to see deep customization from the start screen colors, background, live tile colors, all alert tones, etc. More Social network intigration. Tiles that contain groups of similar apps. The ability to delete multiple photos from the camera roll. Turn by turn GPS. On that note, I am very happy with Mango but know there is more good stuff coming down the pipe. I will support them even though things I would like to see aren't here yet but they are doing a great job so far IMO.

    Custom Hubs might be nice, but I hope they don't take it too far. Resizeable tiles is a horrible idea and I hope that's not implemented for a long time to come.

    What I want most is customisable alerts, but more than that I want international support for ALL of the Bing goodies. The U.S.-centric outlook from Microsoft is infuriating.

    A proper shortcut to wifi/BT/toggles, the ability to set Google as search engine in IE9 rather than Bing because some of us prefer it, improved WP Connector for Mac, and GPS location-aware tile stacks. What do I mean? OK, say you're home - you want xbox live, a newsreader, personal email. On your commute you want travel news, transit maps, maps. At work you want work email, Office, Calendar.

    Basically, you set what tiles you want pinned by location, and the phone reads where you are from the GPS and shuffles your start screen accordingly. The tech is more or less all already there, but it would be an absolute stand-out feature.

    Read all the posts in this thread....so basically you all want Windows Mobile(all the customization you can deal with) with some lipstick(the metro UI), correct?

    If I wanted to spend all damned day customizing different ringtones for my contacts, selecting different backgrounds and tile colors, etc....I would have stayed with WM6.5....the whole point to WP7 is "to get in and get on with your life".....some of you are clearly missing this with your wants...

    Some of us like to play with our gadgets as well. Just because I want to change the way the start screen looks does not mean I can't get in and get out and on with life. I want the option to customize it to my tastes. It's fine that you don't want to spend time doing that, stick with the stock option. And really, how long does it take to change the colors or back ground? Not very long, that's how. No one would be forcing anyone to take the time to do that, you can still check your threads, email and get out.

    The reason people are wanting this customization right now is because there is so much good with the OS as is. Of course there are plenty of other "useful" things people are mentioning as well, but I guess you didn't read those posts. Don't get me wrong, there are many things that MS can still do to improve the OS but obviously people want to change the way things look on their phones.

    And for all those that want to customize the start screen, there is an app that allows you to create those customized screens but they are just for play, they do not save or work as the start screen. It is still cool to play with and see what kind of things that could be possible if MS allowed us to control those options on our phone. Check it out. it's called "Phone 8" I have nothing to do with this so I am not plugging it for any other reason than it's kind of fun.

    Its sounds like Allot of people should be using an Android.....and not a WP7...
    i dont understand how people can have so many complaints about the phone THEY USE....
    why would anyone buy it if they think so many things need to be changed to fit their needs..?
    and dont say lack of research cause that would be your fault...


    its in our Human Instincts to complain i think?

    we got 500features and it still not enough, they should have made 600 features!!!! lol like it would have change anything.. NOT!

    lol we would still have this thread with 3 pages LOL

    I understand you wanting customization, as you're a member of this forum and, thus, tech savvy. However, I believe the percentage of people who want this level of customization, or who can technically do it without screwing things up, is relatively low.

    I think of it like this: WP is like Facebook, and WinMo was like MySpace. People could really screw up their pages on MySpace. They didn't know how to mix background images, background colors, and text colors. They made their pages into places most people wanted to avoid. There is a reason the highly customizable MySpace is nearly dead while Facebook is going strong. This is simlar to how WinMo began to die as the simple-but-elegant iPhone came on the scene.

    If Android was as smooth as Windows on a single core processor and if the phone was less than $100 prepaid, then for sure I would be using Android. :)

    The Quantum is just so much smoother than Optimus One. For $80, why not? But I probably won't pay much more than that for such a rigid system. It's the little things, but it's our human instincts to be in control.

    What are you talking about, I can change battery just fine. This is not an iphone. :)

    This is a "what you want to see in Tango" thread. What's the point of being here if I am not to whine? Why do people get so defensive all the time? WP7 is still a great platform, it just has its problems just like every other OS. Do you want to see a list things I think WP7 is great? I got more than a few of those too (although I like to list those in the Android forum instead). If I worked for M$, I would be thankful that people are whining about the little things. I can't imagine customizable background or ring tone is that hard to implement. Now, Cisco Leap authentication, that might be harder, but also would be invaluable if wp7 wants to get into the professional market.

    Be careful what you say here, remember that wp7 has no flaws and if another os does something better or different you should just leave wp7 and buy that instead. /sarcasm

    I meant battery indicator icon. u can have any wallpapers on the lock screen,but having a background on the actual start screen can take away from the metro aspect a little bit.it's not a big deal I dont even think I had a background on my tp2

    I still would like true mms. I think it's a major pain in the a** to have to send video, sound and sometimes even pics via email. Exchanging phone #'s a **** of a lot easier than exchanging email addresses, and sending media via text is also much simpler than attaching to an email. This is one feature all the other smart phones ( and most feature phones ) have.

    Trust me, I am quite happy with my phone and wouldn't switch to android if you paid me. MS will never make everyone happy as you well know. I don't use my phone for work so my wants wont be the same as someone elses. I am not complaining here but I was responding to someone who said and I quote

    "Read all the posts in this thread....so basically you all want Windows Mobile(all the customization you can deal with) with some lipstick(the metro UI), correct?
    If I wanted to spend all damned day customizing different ringtones for my contacts, selecting different backgrounds and tile colors, etc....I would have stayed with WM6.5....the whole point to WP7 is "to get in and get on with your life".....some of you are clearly missing this with your wants... "

    I think we all for the most part get the point of WP and that is why we have chosen it over the others. For my needs, it couldn't be much better, but other people have other needs. Lipstick and rouge are not all I want. It seems to me though that there is a considerable percentage of people who would like either more color option or a lot of customization options. I do not think that it's a bad thing as I do as well.

    My opinion is that they are doing a pretty damn good job with the OS so far and I know it will only get better, and like you said, the complaining will never be stopped. I just don't like someone saying my wants aren't valid because they aren't theirs.

    I get what your saying and your probably right, then they would complain about how hard it is to do or something along those lines. I guess I don't see why they can't add more color choices at least. I mean, there are three different shades for every color, just look at the People tile as it switches. I personally get bored easily and change my colors scheme quite often, depending on my mood but never use the white background, can't stand it. With all the live tiles that are coming out now, my start screen probably looks nothing like anyone elses really.

    Maybe make it ***** proof with a limited, but larger than now, number of choices that can't really be screwed up lol. Some people mention making the tiles different sizes and I think that is a horrible idea and it doesn't go with the Metro theme at all.
