Windows Phone 7 help and support

In my previous role I worked on a number of Windows Phone 7 projects. I thought I'd just quickly post a few places where you can get help if you need it:


Microsoft Forums

Registration problems -

Subscription management -

Technical issues -

Suggestions and feedback -


Community Sites


Windows Phone 7 Patterns and Practice -


For technical support, there is an option for direct email or phone support from a Microsoft Engineer using our Premier or Pay-Per-Incident Support.  Here are the details:

Microsoft Commercial Technical Support is available to provide support to developers interested in working directly with an engineer at Microsoft.

Pricing for professional support is as follows:


Response time




Contact method




4 to 8 hours




Callback (schedule by using Web)


6am – 6pm PT
Monday – Friday


1 business day







To begin a support incident, visit, enter “Windows Phone Developer Tools” in the Product Finder box on the page, and follow the remaining prompts to begin a support incident.
