                              • Remove the limitation on Ringtones, of 1mb and 40 sec each. What's the use of that ?

                                The limitation on size and time limit of the ringtone is very frustrating. I cant set my own ringtones, as all are above 1 mb. Please remove this.

                                        • Make MY backed up text messages Accessible to ME Please!

                                          PLEASE Allow MY Backed Up Texts Messages to be Accessible to ME. As Much Money that I have paid for WP8 I would expect to be able to Atleast have control over MY texts. I am very unsatisfied with this issue and the phone. I am counting the Days until my contract is up to swtich phones and OS. I just feel like WP8 is Very Limited. Unless something changes Very soon with the mentioned issue, I will be leaving Windows/Microsoft. I was very excited about the phone, but that quickly went away after I realized how limiting it is.
