    • 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.

      • podcast app has serious usability flaw -- missing random access positioning

        2) The positioning within a podcast is clumsy. I expect "random access" where I click on the slider and the index jumps to that point in the podcast. But only serial access is allowed, or short jumps, or very slow continuous fast forward. These seem to be optimized for very short podcasts, like 4-minute songs.

        I commonly listen to hour-long podcasts like "Science Friday" and I rarely hear the whole thing without losing my place (per bug https://windowsphone7community.uservoice.com/forums/107603-bug-feedback/suggestions/1783357-podcast-app-has-serious-usability-flaw-too-sens).

        Getting back to the position is very time consuming -- and dangerous, if I am driving.

        • Marketplace update count doesn't reset properly

          The update count on the Marketplace live tile does not update properly if exiting to the home screen via the start button instead of backing all the way out of Marketplace using the back button after updating apps. It does reset on the next launch of Marketplace, or when exiting via the back button, but since the start button is one click instead of 3-4 to exit, I rarely do the latter ...

          • 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…

            • Timezone issue on Calendar

              When I have hotmail setup as CST and I go to another timezone, the event time is not working properly. My laptop is in say EST, hotmail in CST and I am currently in PST! Appointment times that shows up on the phone are not correct.

              • 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)

                  • Improve Performance of Animation / Storybo

                    Real world use of storyboard animation on WP7 shows it is excessively slow compared to manual animation executed within a dispatcher timer. My findings for Silverlight WP7 game development are consistent with those shown at the bottom fo this article (http://www.codeproject.com/KB/showcase/WP7-Animations.aspx). In short, storyboard animation, while easy to use, is too slow to be useful in WP7 Silverlight.

                    • 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.

                      • Alarm generates multiple notifications...

                        When I set an alarm it generates multible notifications when it goes of so I need to dismiss it at least two times.

                        This is also an issue for notifications from the calender. two or more notifications is displayed at the same time

                          • 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.

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.

                                      This had happened to me about 4 times now. Most times i was watching a video last thing at night then in the morning my alarm fails to give any sound, when i try to play a video in this state i get this error. "There was a problem playing the video you selected. If you're connected to Zune, disconnect and try again"

                                      I'm not connected to zune though. This morning i had this issue again but it was while my alarm was going off, suddenly it stops but it still displays the alarm message

                                        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.
