  1. Create a giantic online game exclusive for all wp users!

    Yeah this would be a real Motivation for many people to buy a Windows phone.
    A game, not like all the other simple games ever developed for mobile devices. I speak from a game everybody would like to play it. A game where you play together with all the other Windows phone users playing this game. Played on a giantic map, based on a great idea you just have to think a Little for it.

    • Time clock on Internet Explorer

      While browsing, it is very easy to lose track of time, especially if you are doing it while taking a dump. My suggestion is to provide a time clock on the right hand corner of the URL bar. The left side has a refresh button. The right side has only 3 dots for "more". Below the 3 dots, put a time clock.

      See here for a mock up

          • Allow file sharing via blue tooth on Nokia Lumia 710

            My previous phone was seriously outdated but I was still able to do this. I'm beginning to think purchasing this windows phone was a mistake.

                            • Take call on windows 8.1

                              If windows 8.1 and windows phone 8.1 are so in sync (ie there are many apps that cross platforms), then the next logical step would be syncing text messages to W8, and even allowing the user to take calls from WP8 via W8.

                                  • few recommended features

                                    1.A file manager system.

                                    2. It would be great if there is one more layer for apps showing quick status.

                                    3. Allowing the execution of all apps in background like in android and ios ,when offline mix is kept for downloading in nokia mixradio,it pauses if we use any other apps.
                                    all apps go to freeze position so a user cannot use the mobile if any app is used for downloading.

                                    4. Ability to download apps from store on pc and install from mobile which has no SD card support like Lumia 920. Clue: have a folder for downloading and…

                                    • savings file to sharepoint

                                      It is essential to empower users to save files directly from the email to either sharepoint or skydrive to a dedicated folder. This eliminates doublework.
