    Probably answered but the way I can save my contacts to Google servers, can I do the same on wp? Incase someday have to wipe the phone or it does the iPhone trick to just wipe the contacts without asking ;)

    It syncs with Outlook.com contacts should you want that. (among other services including Google, right?)

    Switched to WP from Android HTC One when the Lumia launched. So far I am very happy. All the little issues that make the OS less feature rich seem to be addressed in the 8.1 update this spring - at least the important ones.

    The app store doesn't need more ... It needs more quality, attention to detail, refinement and apps that take better advantage of WP beautiful interface. Seems like a developer issue, however it is not confined to third party. Even Microsoft's own apps look better on Android with more capabilities and tighter refinement.

    I think anyone coming from Android will be pleased of they have some patience.

    Currently waiting on a Lumia 925, but decided to hold onto my Galaxy S3 until I'm truly sure I want to go full on Windows Phone.

    no, you don't need a 3rd party app to do it. Carddav is supported. Ensure that your sync settings for google account has contacts sync enabled.

    I'm looking to switch to WP from Android. Quick question: is it possible to sync Google calendar and contacts? This would be the only thing holding me back.
    You don't have t wait for 8.1. I came from Android a few months ago and had the same question. There are several 3rd party calendar apps that are very good and have Google Calendar support. I use Chronos calendar and it is very good. Regarding contacts, Nokia has an app called Transfer My Data. It works perfectly to transfer Google contacts.

    Will carddav support multiple calendars, or just the default?

    see this post on the thread: http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...7/176768-2.htm

    I think I may have found a solution to this problem. I was setting up multiple google calendars on my phone using (Mango Tip: Sync Multiple Google Calendars with Windows Phone).

    I noticed the "Enable "Delete Email As Trash" for this device." option, selected it, and synced the account on my phone. Now deleted emails go to the trash label in gmail.

    this should help sync multiple calendars.

    I came to WP on a Lumia 920 from an iPhone 4s because I was tired of Apple just idling by and releasing new hardware and features that weren't improvements over anything they already had. I took a hard look at the apps that I actually use on the daily and WP had all of them, minus like 2-3 (which are now available like Pandora and Wells Fargo). Plus I found that I actually really like the larger screen from my 3.5" iPhone and the hardware was better. WP8 is missing some features which is being addressed with WP8.1 for me so I am very excited about it but for me it's not about having ALL the features for the sake of features. Plus I actually like the UI and UX.
    Dont use pandora. Use metro Radio, unlimited skips without commericials

    I came to WP after my Android was being slow and also I caught a virus, not really a virus more like something else dont know how to describe it but it was charging me extra money per month at first it was subtle until it started charging in the $50s and that was when I found out I had a virus/spyware/phishing idk. but I downloaded this from the Google player store. Actually was called app store at the time. I was on Froyo, flashed to gingerbread flashed to honeycomb and flashed to Jelly Bean and that was when my phone was too slow so I decided to try WP since I am an apple hater.

    I got WP as soon as it came out. Its really solid. I cant wait for WP 8.

    For those that stuck with WP through the ages just remember when WP takes that #1 spot from Android, we started from the bottom now we here.

    My last WP device was the Sony Xperia 1. I spent the last six years on Android and just picked up a 1020 when my four month old Nexus 5's digitizer failed. I'm very satisfied with this device, especially the camera. The only drawback is I can't stream any live sports any more. I had NFL Sunday Ticket, NBA Game Time, MLS Matchday and MLB At Bat and was able stream live games on all of them. Only At Bat is available on WP and it doesn't stream live games.

    Last year MLB released the MLB At Bat app for WP in the middle of the season, and it streamed live games. I'm hoping for the same thing this year.
