    Gonna go by my boy and pick up the 900. Black? Cyan looked awesome, but even the "Nokia Blue" didn't seem to go w/ it.



    Black Lumias are all like, Yo yo boy, Whatssup? Everything coo, Aight.
    While Cyan Lumias are all like *Nasal Voice* Hey Boby how is it going? Nice frank good to see you.

    this does not work.
    Yes it does. At least on my HD7. You just have to hold the search key for 5 or 6 seconds.

    Flipping the phone to landscape view while using the calculator will give more functions.

    If your app hangs and "back button" doesn't work try this:
    Press "Windows Key"
    Open 5 new Apps (or settings) and leave them in multitasking stack pressing "Windows Key" after you opened everyone.
    It will tombstone the hang app.

    Remember, new customers get a month Zune Pass FOR FREE! Click on "3 Try a Zune Music Pass." It's only $9.99 a month if you decide to keep it. It gets better.

    One Zune Pass can be used on THREE separate devices. That's 10 bucks for music on your phone, you're wife's phone, and your child's phone (or mistress). It gets better.

    Each person can still set up their Windows Phone using their own email. For example, my girl set up her Focus using her personal email account. Using the Zune software I logged into my account and authorized her phone as one of my 3 devices that can use the Zune Pass.

    you say you can "mount a drive for Skydrive" on your PC. How do you do that? I have looked around, but haven't found anything that works well...

    I set up a dummy hotmail/live account for my family to share. That way we only have to pay for apps once for both me and my wife's phones. It also shares a calendar for us to coordinate our schedule but we don't have any contacts in it so we don't have to see all of each others contacts, for that we use our personal email accounts...

    Looking for a way to fast forward within a song/podcast/etc... In Zune player. Does anyone have a way to do this? I know how to skip or go back to the previous or past item. ZUne doesn't seem to have ff/rew controls.

    You have to hold down the next track button and it will start to fast forward...same with rewind just hold down the previous track button

    Nokia Specific but ##634# will install the diagnostics app on your Lumia Phone. There are lots of goodies in there. I wish I could pin the Battery App to the Home Screen. ;)

    Not sure if this is a tip, but:

    After a few seconds, all the connections and battery life on the top of the screen disappear. Tapping the same area will pop them all back up.

    "pin to start" from within internet explorer snaps a screenshot for the start screen tile. Zoom into a nice looking part of the page (ie:wpcentral logo at top of page) before "pin to start" for a better looking start screen tile.

    How do you make a checkbox "to-do" list style note in OneNote? Right now I just have a list of stuff that I just delete after done but the checkboxes are more elegant

    On the desktop:
    Select what you want to have check boxes
    Under the "Home" tab, "Tags" section, click to-do boxes

    On mobile:
    Highlight what you want to have check boxes
    Push the check box button at the bottom

    Poof. Done. Easy.

    thank you

    You can have Internet access on your phone when you are connected to Zune via USB. One simple way to limit your data charges.

    When using email, touching the far left of the screen (next to the email title) brings out check boxes to select and manipulate multiple emails.

    I think only in the same conversation by selecting the top email before it indents in.

    * when you browse your photos by date, touch the name of the month and the year, and you will get a full list of months and years
    * in the calendar month view touch the name of the month and then you can jump to any month in any year

    In the calculator, turning the phone clockwise gives you different options than turning the phone counter-clockwise.

    If you go to settings and go to "ease of access" which is the handicap settings and turn on "speech for phone accessibility" when the phone rings the name of the person that is calling will be repeated while the phone rings letting you know who is calling. It also expands the voice options for texting. A very useful feature that I ignored because it was in the handicap section. It's great to know who is calling without having to look at your screen. You might screen more calls with this feature on
