    • I have recently upgraded form Nokia N8-00 to Nokia Lumia 925 and immediately noted few very important things missing.

      I have recently upgraded form Nokia N8-00 to Nokia Lumia 925 and immediately noted few very important things missing.

      1: I could transfer most of my data from N8-00 to Lumia 925 except calender entries and notes. For me all calender entries and noted are equally important as my contact book and messages. I attribute this to absence of support of Nokia Suite to WP8. This was never the issue for all my previous upgrades from any Nokia to next Nokia phone. It's immensely annoying. Also now, as there is no "SUITE" for WP8, I can not back up (contacts,…

      • Downloadable Filipino keyboard text suggestions

        The Filipino keyboard appears as one of the available keyboards in Settings/Keyboards, but it doesn't have the option to suggest text.

          • Bing Now or siri equivalent would make this phone untouchable.

            Being able to VERY quickly search and locate info on google now is amazing. It's ability to pull info from other apps and services is so convenient! For example I can use google now to track a package I ordered just by speaking to it. It pulls the tracking number automatically from my linked email account. It can also tell me within seconds who won the ball game last night or tell me when the next train is set to arrive while I'm standing at the stop. It's amazing software that is super accurate. I know that Microsoft has the…

              • Make WP7 recognise non US addresses. UK addresses are easily recognisable.

                The ability to recognise addresses was one reason the original WP7 didn't have/need copy and paste. What happened to this idea for non US addresses?

                  • Half height full/half width live tile

                    I'd like to be able to set a live tile to half height - full width or half height - half width. Some tiles show information at full size but could show the same data in less vertical space. Having the option to show that data in a smaller space would be ideal.

                          • Include these in 7.8!! :(

                            Here are some improvements that I think would definitely sweeten the 7.8 update:

                            •Mark Several/ Select All option
                            (IMPORTANT)
                            It would be nice to be able to select multiple messages/ pictures/ contacts etc to delete them at one go or to manage them as its a laborious thing manage them one by one.

                            •Font Size (magnifying text)
                            (IMPORTANT)
                            Many has been complaining that the text is too small to read without their reading glasses. There should be the magnifying / text size option to take care of this group of users.

                            •Displaying Text messages on lock screen
                            This is something…

                                      • Would like for option on calendar to have "every monday" (or any day of the week) option in the OCCURS field.

                                        In the Calendar it has options listed under the OCCURS field. But it doesn't have the option for every Monday or every Tuesday ...etc.

                                          The color of the text on my lock screen is white and its hard to see with the background picture I have. Creating an option to where you can change the color would be very helpful, even if its just a choice between black and white.
