  1. Mobile Data On/Off Option to Quick Settings!

    According to the WP8.1 Beta SDK leaks, It seems there is no Mobile Data on/off option in quick settings. It's really unbelievable how would Microsoft forget to add that option! It's a really huge missing for the system and the coming update. Many people need that option. It's really interesting that Microsoft limits celluar download, brings DataSense to protect their wallet but doesn't let them to control their mobile data themselves!. Please fix this situation in the final build!

                  • Please include rSAP!

                    Bluetooth rSAP ist used in hundred thousands of car kits. There is actually no better possibility to connect a phone with the car than rSAP. Windows mobile 6.5 supports rSAP and I think it is a very small-minded thinking of Microsoft to cut ths off from newer versions of mobile OS.

                      • WP8 VPN

                        Windows Phone needs VPN connectivity. Need I say more? Android has it. iOS has it. ****, even BB has it. If WP is to succeed in this increasingly "on the go" and mobile market, its users have to have VPN connectivity.

                        • HDMI Output

                          Every other competitor has the ability to hook up an MHL adapter in order to send video to a high-definition television via HDMI. This is a crucial feature, and needs to be incorporated in a Windows Phone 8 update. I just purchased a Lumia 920 and found myself very shocked and unpleasantly so when I realized that this feature is not supported as every other modern smartphone supports it.

                                • Control Center [Quick access for setting and toggles]

                                  iOS' control center is a well feature. we should be able to access seting, connection, internet sharing, screen rotation EVERYWHERE. it's so silly to tap windows button, swipe left, scroll down the massive app list, tap seting, scroll down again just for TURNING bluetooth ON.
                                  iOS' control centre is a simple way. swipe up and "click" the toggle.

                                  it's up to WPteam for implementing this feature in anyway

                                  LISTEN TO US.
                                  thank you

                                    • Windows Phone 8 static IP configuration and VPN support

                                      My new Windows Phone 8 equipped Nokia device doesn't support corporate static IP configuration and assignment or VPN. Incredible! It simply isn't a professional mobile OS, but only a toy.
                                      I spent a lot of time in waiting for this device, but I'm going to let this device to my nephew.
                                      I'm going to buy an Android or an Apple one. I'm sorry for Nokia, a great company.
                                      I hope Microsoft may change its CEO as soon ad possible and may come back to real world...

                                      • Allow first gen phones to tether

                                        Widely anticipated in Mango, but eventually unimplemented, the USB/wi-fi tethering function available to all second gen phones must be made available to early-adopters.

                                        • Allow Bluetooth Keyboard in Windows Phone 8

                                          Please allow the Bluetooth profile for Bluetooth keyboards. I have a Microsoft Wedge Bluetooth keyboard, but it does not work with Windows Phone 8. This seems to be a very simple p[problem to fix.
