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".

      • Under status bar, we need a shortcut to turn on/off connections and Internet sharing

        Under status bar, we need the ability to turn on or off the following (when specific icons are clicked) like in WM6.5 (this saves a whole lot of clicks):

        - WIFI
        - 3G (data connection)
        - Bluetooth
        - Internet sharing

        • Blinking LED notification for Missed Calls Email SMS

          Display a blinking LED notification when there are missed calls, voicemails, emails, text messages (SMS) etc waiting for you. Also, a blue LED when Bluetooth is on would be a great option. It enables the user to know something is awaiting is attention by just looking at it, without even picking up the phone. No more turning on Power to know what awaits you.

          • 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!

            • enough of black and white!

              Enough of black and white!
              Most of Windows Phone apps use the native dark/light scheme. Please let users set an image instead of curbing them to a single black or white alternative, in order to have the phone a little more alive!
              These can be illustrations of what I say: http://xum.ir/ZvAR http://xum.ir/ZvDt

                  • Support for full Bluetooth profiles - including accessories, keyboards, low energy

                    Windows Phone loses usability, market visibility and relevance, and falls behind competing products by not supporting the HID Bluetooth profile (and others) for actions such as hooking up Bluetooth accessories including game controllers, keyboards, and low energy accessories e.g. sport (Pebble). Full compatibility between WP8 and the massive Bluetooth ecosystem is important to

                                      Enable document attachment in emails, since its painful not to be able to answer a coworker and quickly attach a word document.

                                        • Pashto language support on Windows Phone

                                          Since Windows has Pashto language support it would be great if Windows Phone also had support for Pashto. There are more than 60 million people in the world speaking Pashto. Mainly in Afghanistan and in Pakistan.
