      • 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.

            • 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. (posted on dev feedback, probably the wrong place)

                • Unable to reply to replies of tweets

                  Ok, steps are as follows:

                  1. Go to Me Tile
                  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.

                      • Attached photos don't display in HTML e-mails

                        When a photo is attached to an e-mail that's formatted in HTML rather than plain-text, it's suppressed from the attachments list, so that even after the download message/pictures link is followed, it won't display unless it was added inline with <img> tags by the sender.

                        I understand that it can be desirable to suppress the display of images in the attachment list when they're already rendered inline in the e-mail message body, but images that are simply attached and not inserted inline should not be suppressed from the list of attachments.

                        As it is, it's impossible to view approximately half…

                        • Make DataContractSerializer Behavior Consistent Across Platforms

                          DataContractSerializer should serialize all public properties with an object hierarchy. In Silverlight nested hierarchies are serialized without DataMember custom attributes. However, with WP7 only top-level attributes are serialized. Nested instances are null. This is a bug in WP7, as the behavior is consistent between WCF on Silverlight and .NET Thick client applications. If WCF/SOAP is to be used on WP7 this bug must be fixed. There are numerous use cases for using SOAP over REST.
