    Em... someone just rang me, I finished the call and now... well nothing... the screen is off and I can't make it come back on? the buttons vibrate when I touch them but nothing happens - if I ring the phone, it goes straight to answermachine. :excl:

    1)Skydive photos should show up in the Pictures hub. Under "albums"

    2)You can use a MP3 as a ringtone, just not directly from the phone. It has to be a certain size. There's a tutorial on how to make mp3 ringtones here at WPC

    3)Never tried Plus

    So the phone has arrived and I'm very happy with it so far - few questions:

    1) I thought photos I stuck in skydrive would automatically be available on the phone? I can't find them?

    2) Is it still the case, you can't set an MP3 as an ringtone?

    3) I can't work out how you'd log into Pulse news? There seems to be no option for?

    Thanks in advance.

    Power cycle the phone. Sounds like it's just stuck in some funky mode.

    Thanks - power-cycling the phone solved that problem. As for Sky-drive, the photos are there but they are not appearing on the phone... hum...

    Edit:

    Ah... after you link a phone, it creates a specific Skydrive folder, by moving "my photos" folder into that folder, they now appear on the phone...


    So far, barring the odd glitch, I'm quite enjoying this, the GUI is a refreshing change from the (in my view) chaotic nature of Android.

    It was a freebie from Nokia, so a lumia 800, the more I use it, the more I like the experience - I've used all of the OSes (bar iOS) and by far this is the only one I've actually liked rather than simply put up with.
