We’ve created this site as a tool to help Microsoft understand how customers use Windows Phone and we welcome your feedback.

Standard Disclaimer – our lawyers made us put this here ;-) Please note that the Windows Phone Feature Suggestion Box is moderated and is a voluntary participation-based project, and if your submission is not a product feature suggestion it may be removed. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft. See the “Terms of Use” link below for more information. Please limit your suggestions to 25 words or less.

CAST YOUR VOTES! – community feedback is active and growing … thanks! As a result, we are going to increase the number of votes you have available on your favorite suggestions from 10 to 20. Keep those suggestions and votes coming!

Please enter your feature suggestion...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

          • Sync/Backup Phone Settings to SkyDrive

            Be nice to have settings backed up so if you get a new device or reset phone it will automatically sync back like contacts.

                      • I want a delete function in "App Purchase History" in my account

                        I don't want to install all the apps that I ever installed. I even don't want to see them in history, because I find it is difficult to chose from the list.

                            • Allow Xbox Live Account Merging

                              Please allow people (even if you charge them $5-$10) to merge two Xbox Live accounts.

                              I have an old Xbox Live account that my brother set up for me when he gave me his old Xbox 360. I've had that one for years, but have never used the account outside of the Xbox, as my brother and I forgot the password for it.

                              Fast forward years to the Nokia Lumia 920's debut. I pick up the phone and create a new Outlook.com account and get to using the phone and the great games with my new account.

                              I hadn't played…
