  1. Indian languages text support

    Support for Indian languages such as Hindi, Telugu and Tamil. I should be able to read that is available on the internet. I am requesting just the font support not translation.

        • Problem Sync Playlist from WP7 to Zune

          At home I generated a Automatic Playlist and Sync this Playlist with WP7.
          At work I connect my phone and copy that playlist to my PC.
          After I added two songs at home and sync them to my phone, I am unable to bring this new playlist to my PC at work.
          Zune (work) shows me my old playlist on my phone, the two new songs are missing. But they are on the phone.
          I tried to delete the local playlist and copy the new playlist again but this doesn't worked.

              • Scrolling to a worng location of the People hub when deleting a contact

                I imported all my contacts from my SIM card to my new WP7. Then I added my Windows Live ID contacts. I wanted to delete some of the duplicates. Suppose I deleted a name starting from letter 'A'. once the entry is deleted, the People list does not come back to the 'A' zone of the People list, but it scroll down to some where in "F" names. This is irritating. This bug can be easily reproduced.

                • Mail notification sound for IMAP accounts announces UNREAD mails. Not NEW mails.

                  New Hotmails are only announced once with a sound notification. Unread mail will not be re-announced.
                  New mails from an IMAP account are announced on arrival and are re-announced every time the account is synchronized. Even though the mails are NOT new, but still unread.

                  This is causes my phone to “ding-dong” every 15 minutes for an entire night, if one single mail arrives a few minutes after I went to bed :(

                  This problem first appeared with NoDo.
                  Now using 7720.

                  Steps to reproduce:
                  - Connect an IMAP account
                  - send mail to account
                  - wait and listen

                      • Facebook Birthdays

                        I'm not sure if it's a bug or a "feature" but enabling the Facebook Calendar doesn't pull Birthdays. It's the only thing I really want from a Facebook Calendar. I don't need Events, I mainly want Birthdays.

                        • Duplicate youtube videos in Music Hub history

                          If I play a youtube video on multiple occasions, it shows up in my music history multiple times. I'd expect a unique youtube video to only show up once and be ordered by the last time played instead of creating duplicates.

                          • Microsoft.Phone.Controls.WebBrowser.navigateToString(string html) can't use UTF-8

                            When I try to inject a String into the Webrowser that contains something like 私 the browser can't display it.

                            A workaround is to write the data UTF-8 encoded to the IsolatedStorage and tell the browser to load it from there.
                            But access to the filesystem costs time.

                            • Fix Caller ID

                              Globally the same number can be presented to the phone in different ways but Mango is still doing an exact match to get the name. For example a call might arrive as 61234567 but sms arrives as +85261234567 (country code on front) therefore no name is displayed. This is a major oversight but can be easily corrected by the team.

                                  2. Click on your current status (next to your picture)
                                  3. Wait for the replies to load.

                                  At this point, you are then unable to reply to any of the replies to that particular tweet. You can copy it, but not reply to it. The text entry box will be starting with @yourusername which will reply to your original tweet, which will disrupt the flow of the conversation.

                                  There should be a way of replying to the replies of your tweet from that screen.

                                      1. In the Marketplace one category is called Nachrichten && Wetter. Guess what's wrong with that.
                                      2. In mail, empty folder is translated as Leerer Ordner. It should be Ordner leeren.

                                      3. Stop using babelfish or w/e to translate stuff. Get a native speaker. Or if you used one, give him/her context not just the text, then the mail thing wouldn't have happened.

                                        • Phone restarts randomly

                                          Occasionally I'll pick up the phone and realise it has restarted, and is asking for the SIM pin number. Often this happens overnight, meaning my alarm fails to go off. Once my 11am alarm went off at 11.44, weirdly, and I could see the phone had reset itself.
