    Everything seems to be complete except.. 1. seperate volume control for Zune and ringer,  if radio or music is playing while a call comes in watch your ears..2.the ability to custom color and background text is a must for poor eyes when texting and reading texts and emails…3 being able to resize the tiles would be a nice addition. 4. the ability to set the background for gmail and other email account other than white.5.speech to text needs a definate upgrade,

    The Silverlight for Windows Phone Toolkit has absolutely no documentation, the development environment is unstable and the app versioning mechanisms are archaic.  I feel like a Microsoft QA tester, are you people idiots?

    I am deeply disappointed to see that there is no native video calling in mango OS. I had bought HTC Radar today only and when I  found this, I was shattered. Please do see to this issue. Reply on utkarsh121(at)gmail(dot)com if possible.

    If MS needs to sell WP to 1/6th of the worlds population – the Indians, it should allow media (photo, song, video) transfer over bluetooth and default search engine setting in IE (to set it to Google, Bing is simply unknown here).

    Indian TV shows highlighting this as drawback. And yep, they seriously are.
