    So maybe this has been tossed around before but I played with paint a little bit to show you guys what I would like out of the next big update. Hopefully Microsofts version would look a little better than mine :-p Boredom is getting the best of me!

    I want that when I'm texting and the screen get locked while inside of the conversation, to still get the update. I have missed a lot of text because of that and I might miss an important one someday. Also I don't care what everyone is saying, the keyboard is not that great, needs a lot of improvements.

    Your mock up looks great BTW.

    Then I don't want to even try the other keyboards because is awful. I don't like the button placement or the size of some buttons or that it changes, so I want to press enter and it brings out the local scout.

    There should be at least one Swype-style keyboard option. Android has stock Swype, and an app called TouchPal, which I preferred.

    I'm with you. Never been a fan of the WP touch keyboard. The keys are too narrow and I don't like the layout that much.

    All they need to do is space the keys out and it will be fine. As we all know Apple borrowed Microsofts on screen keyboard for iOS 5.

    I want the best that webOS can offer in WP 8. That would be a marriage made in heaven!

    1) webOS Multitasking with card swiping
    2) webOS notification system based on the Touchpad (swiping notifications to see the next one)
    3) webOS synergy

    These 3 items added to the awesome WP platform would make it a killer OS.

    I want orientation lock as a physical button/switch. But I'd take it as a live-tile toggle...

    My hd7 keyboard doesn't do that in landscape. And I'm glad. Not that I ever use it in landscape...

    Yeah I just want the OS to be up to par with Apple/Android for once. I want that when somebody buys a Windows Phone, the first though they had is not, ooh it doesn't do that?

    Different volume for different functions. Zune can stay at 30 since that's what I need to be able to use it on my car stereo, but I only want my ringer and text alert volume at 15 tops. Not too mention things like video playback or alarm clocks...

    I think the icons on the tiles should just rotate into landscape mode - like how the little icons do when you're in say the email app and you rotate from portrait to landscape. That way it wouldn't have to re-flow the tiles and would look very smooth, only issue is that the content on double-width tiles would have to go from landscape to portrait, i don't think that's a bad trade-off for the smoothness this solution would have rather than having to re-flow the tiles so you could fit double-width ones in.

    -Different volume settings for games, media, and alerts
    -Custom text tones
    -Make Bing services universal (image search, song identification etc available to everyone)
    -Easier tab access in IE
    -Let volume buttons wake the device and bring up Zune controls
    -Orientation lock toggle
    -General W8 integration

    Since Windows 8 is a horizontal scrolling desktop, I would imagine the newest iteration of WP will allow the same.

    I'm going to add my #1 WP7 gripe: The inability to select a default browser font size and be able to zoom to it, with dynamic text reflow. If my BlackBerry's webkit browser can do it, I think the WP browser should be able to do it.

    My no.1 gripe:
    No mobile TV (apart from that Sky News app)
    Other:
    If you press back in IE, it goes to the previous page, not an app you were in before
