      • Equalizer for WP7

        Please add music equalizer in next WP7 update. Nokia Lumia phones with WP7 running should not be left without equalizer. WP8 users have received this option. WP7 wants the same option.
        We want this option no later before WP7.9 comes out.
        Thanks!

          Stop with the ******** that you don’t have enough resources to bring more functionality to the GDR updates, we all know you have multiple teams working parallel! And you can’t tell me that 70% of the work on Windows Phone Blue aka 8.1 isn’t done already! Instead of saving those new features for a new major update so you can shout into the world look we bring 600 new updates to our Phone you should pack them and send the finished features out each month!!!

                    • Update smartphone with Windows Phone 7.5 to Windows Phone 8 (Apollo).

                      It will be very very important to update all the Windows Phone 7.5 smartphones to the next update Windows Phone 8. Lots of people who decided to belive in your amazing OS will leave it otherwise. If you will not update to WP8 it will be a tremendous own goal. Many people (and me as well) were waiting the new Lumia 900 to buy it, but now, that many websites say that it will not be updated, we are no longer thinking about it. You will need to give us an assurence that we will not buy a smartphone that…

                            Please add select all option for edit text. Until then we can choose cut or copy. This easier than drag all text. Thanks
                            لطفا گزینه انتخاب همه را برای ویرایش متن اضافه کنید. تا بعد از آن ما بتوانیم بُرش یا کپی را انتخاب کنیم. این ساده تر از کشیدن همه متن است. تشکر
