    Barcode and QR code scanner work out of the box! No extra settings! Same thing for scaning song, but Shazam is Shazam :)

    Related to this, I have the Zune Pass with 10 song credits per month, I usually just hit the Music search in the car to pick out songs off the radio, well today I was going through some other songs related to those and wanted to have some queued for when my credits renew. I hit play on those, then brought up the audio search which listened to them and recognized them. Your music searches are saved so it's pretty convenient to have them lined up and ready to go :)

    A pretty neat "aha!" moment that I had last week was about Office. I had been complaining about having to keep up with all of my syllabi print-outs and making sure they didn't get mixed up and I realized that I can just download them to my phone. Now, if I want to look up an assignment, I just go to Office on my phone and choose the course and it will either pull it from SkyDrive or from a saved version on my phone (back-ups are essential, lol).
    Nice one! That would actually be really handy.

    I've been using WP since about Dec '10. I'm a WebOS refugee as well, was a bit torn between the two for a while but HP took care of that. There have been a few such moments for me with WP7 including just the overall snappy-ness of the system especially the browser, to the zune software (the only thing my Zune HD was missing was a phone), to the great hardware.

    The biggest moment for me though was actually quite recently. I was sleeping in, and my boss sent me a text asking if I could come in to work. My phone read the text aloud from my night stand and asked for a reply, I said no and commanded the message be sent. My boss asked why, I said that I was too busy with previous plans, and said send again. I didn't have to move a single muscle, I didn't have to get out of my nice warm bed, IT WAS AMAZING!!!

    Can all the WP7 phones do that? I'll have to look in the settings of mine, that sounds like a really useful feature.

    It's real useful when you receive texts while driving. It's not perfect, but it's pretty good. I have a contact named Leeann and it thinks I am saying, "lee and", so it can't find the contact.

    Go into settings - System - Speech - Scroll to the bottom and change "Read aloud incoming text messages" to "always on".

    Heh, that can be dangerous. I wouldn't recommend leaving it always on unless you have prim and proper friends/family. :P

    I know TellMe knows mom and dad, but can it learn any other nicknames? If so, does anyone know how to set it up? I think it is odd that it knows those two, but yet I haven't encountered any others.

    It tells you who the text is from and asks you if you want it to be read, to which you need to reply "read it" to have it be read to you. It works really well overall, I have found.

    There is a Nickname text box in every contact's info that needs to have an entry if it is different than what you have in the Name text box. For example, your brother's name might be "David Johnson", but if you also have "Big Bro" in the nickname box, you can then use either one when searching for him.

    Hi. Sorry but am a bit of an-about-to-be-a-WP-newbie-when-the-Nokia-Lumia-900-comes-out. I am still using an Android device at the moment, but was a great fan of WM6.x. Does the speech system require a data connection to perform these functions like Siri does, or can it manage without one like Voice Command used to in the golden days of Windows Mobile?

    It depends what kind of voice command you are looking for. Without data/wifi connection, the phone can still handle commands like "Open <app name>" or "Call/text <contact name>" just fine.

    However, if you try to compose a message with speech or "Search <phrase>", it wouldn't work as it is not connected to the TellMe service. I haven't had it try and read me a message without data connection yet, but I assume that would not work either.

    for speaking the message outloud in car it doesn't require data connection and general command works, "but" if you try to tell it you want to send a message by voice it'll let you say the message then try to connect to the server, thats when it doesn't work

    im just glad it can still read it out without data though lol

    Hi all. First post here and this thread seems like a good place to start.

    Just got my Lumia 710 (amazing btw) and had a great Aha! moment this morning. Wife needed me to call the doctors quickly and i hadn't put the number into the new phone yet.

    I figure quickest way to get the number is to do a quick internet search...so i hit the Bing button and begin typing. I'm coming from a Nokia N900 which has a great hardware keyboard so not used to typing on a screen yet...so i give the voice search a try and say "MyTown Surgery"....Bang it gets it straight away and comes in as top result.

    Then i hit that result expecting the website...but no - it gives me a neat little selection of info about the surgery which included the phone number - i hit the number and Bang it dials the surgery.

    All this took about 6 seconds - would usually have taken the best part of a minute. One of the best things was being able to get the number i needed without having to go to the actual website or even type anything - something that is going to come in useful time and time again when searching for business phone numbers. :)
