    And I mean features that everyone would use (C&P, Multitasking etc) not features that only the phone geeks would use really.

    Has Mango addressed mostly everything or are there some basic stuff missing?

    Thanks.

    When you say "features that everyone would use" wouldn't that also include the average consumer?

    I'm willing to bet that the average consumer uses far less features than what we "geeks" complain about on a daily basis.

    there are a few glaring omissions like full Bluetooth and Video sharing, but I think most baseline features are covered.

    I'd be happy with full BT, skype and ics on my next phone.

    I know it's not a big deal to most, but I still would like to be able to send more than one picture or vid via MMS. Also BT sharing.

    Sharing videos through mms and Facebook. Like Winterfang I'd like to see a built in YouTube app that allows better video sharing. I know we won't see one with the sharing options the android version has, but I think Microsoft should work on it. And yes I know there are other YouTube apps that do some of this.

    A couple of big ones with the browser

    1. Make the url bar disappear to save screen real estate.
    2. Text reflow after pinch zoom.

    the YouTube probably will not happen because Google is blocking MS access to the proper APIs. there's already video uploading to Facebook support

    I agree with you on YouTube. Can't believe I forgot about uploading videos to Facebook. I've done that a few times since I got mango.

    I think customization still a big thing that is missing to an average user.

    This should be an easy fix for MS...how hard it's to add couple more color options that aren't candy like...like espresso or graphite.

    the first set of complaints were that the URL bar wasn't in landscape now that it is people still complain. and the text fits to screen in default zoom level so text reflow really isn't needed.

    BT audio with headphones is included. only thing I think is missing in the way of Facebook and Twitter integration is liking others comments and editing and deleting of comments, on the twitter end I would like to see what others are saying on one page.

    Is it so hard to have the url bar in landscape mode and also have it out of the way when not used? Developers at Google and Apple must be geniuses to get it right the first time.

    And I don't want something other than the default zoom level if it pleases your highness.

    its also a pain to have to scroll back to the top of the page to access this address bar,so MS did right by leaving it. sure it wouldn't hurt u losing a small bit of real estate, sure doesn't affect me. not my fault or MS' fault that u can't accept this.

    There's a tool called Advanced Config that can change tile colors. It can be sideloaded on unlocked phones. Although it's not the lack of color that bugs me. I'd rather have customizable colors and sizes for each tile.

    Background picture is another thing missing. Not so much on the home screen since the tiles covers most of it anyway, but the app menu can certainly use some customizable background.

    Oh, another thing. Landscape support. Each tile should be able to rotate.

    I would say the most glaring missing features for me is the lack of advanced settings and customisation.. Granted I understand Microsoft wants to keep it under control and make it simple, So to reduce problems that may come up (a trade off). But still we're missing actually a whole lots of things:

    Direct Outlook sync,
    Networking stuff: Static IPs, VPN, etc
    Bluetooth
    More settings for ringtones/notifications/vibrate
    Other additional settings here and there would be great. Such as IE9 settings for tab buttons, auto hide bars, etc. Zune playlist also a problem for me.

    I can't help the feeling that microsoft has gone the apple way, where it wants to control everything what user can or can not do. Too much control.

    And access to WP7 for those who dare such as registry, direct access to file system, sideloading custom made apps.

    Other than that.. great OS... :)

    Mango has certainly improved WP7 more than I imagined. But there are a couple of things I was hoping would be included:

    1. Repeating Reminders - if I miss a text/voice mail/email/etc, I would like to have the reminder repeat every X minutes (set by me) for Y number of times (also set by me).
    2. Outlook Tasks - tasks can now be found in the Calendar app, however, they appear as just one long list. Looking forward to someone creating an app that accesses the data that is now sync'd via the phone's Exchange link.

    they already fixed it from the first set of complaints, why would they want to return it to that? menso.
    Zune playlist also a problem for me.

    so MS isn't allowed to lay down some ground rules? doesn't everyone have rules for their own houses? and the Zune playlist feature is there.

    Customized alert tones or at least let you use the alarm tones for text alerts!

    Delete all or multiple deletion of text messages.

    More volume control options (silent option without vibrate).
