  1. Time changes

    On my LG Optimus 7, the date and time will suddenly change to a random date and time. It usually happens when I'm listening to music. Indeed, at the moment it seems to happen every time. I'll be walking along at 3pm on a Wednesday, and then find that my clock now thinks it's 1am next Sunday. (Weirdly, it always changes to a nearby date.) There is usually a pause of a few seconds in the music that gives away that something has happened.

    Srangly this does not affect the calendar, as my appointment for 'tomorrow' will still say 'tomorrow',…

    • unable to change liveID

      After I change my LiveID, switched from my old email Adress to a live.de address, I wasn't able to change my liveID account on Phone. I must create a new Account, but was not able to delete the old.

      • Purchased Marketplace Apps continue to download after pausing

        Once an app is purchased from the app marketplace, it will begin to download immediately. You can pause this download by tapping and holding on the app icon and selecting "pause" from the popup menu. Once the app download is paused, if you put the phone into sleep mode the app will begin to download again on its own. This can unintentionally use a large amount of data without the user's knowledge (for example, if someone wanted to pause a download over 3G to continue when they have wi-fi access at a later time).

            • 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.

                  • podcast app has serious usability flaw -- too sensitive

                    Podcast section of Music + Videos app is very frustrating to use. It constantly loses its place in the podcast because the entire screen is touch sensitive rather than just the control area. More than half the time I will lose my place if I begin a podcast and then slide the phone into its case. I like to listen to hour-long podcasts ("Science Friday") and it is rare to hear the whole thing without accidentally skipping to the next podcast and having to go back and find my place again.

                    • OneNote - Image scaling bug

                      To test this, simply "print" any document or web page with text to your OneNote notebook that is synced to your Windows Phone. Sync and open the note on the phone and zoom in on the image : it looks distorted, washed out and pixelated on the phone, but if you look at the note from a computer it looks fine.

                      • 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…

                          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 ...

                            • Audio stops working

                              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

                              • 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.

                                  There is no way to cancel an in-progress submission. The UI throws exceptions and dies frequently, for no apparent reason. When an update is submitted, details from the previous update should be carried forward.

                                    • 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.
