Add File Manager to Windows Phone
Add File Manager to Windows Phone 8
This is how I see it:
Having a file manager is a necessity. I understand that a lot of users who do not utilize their smartphones to any extent beyond basic Office, music and video files have no use for it. However, for users like me, who have to work with other file types, this is an absolute must. Additionally, the lack of an SD card slot and/or USB on-the-go support on Flagship devices such as the Lumia 920 is a horrible lack of foresight if you are not adding a file manager for your internal drive.
My suggestion to Microsoft is this:
Hold your position on not having a file manager for the entirety of the file system if you must, even if it's restrictions such as these that influence and inspire hackers and 3rd party roms. Just make an update that creates a designated folder, say, "My Downloads" or "My Files" and an app that only accesses that folder (for all your security concerns) for all those "other" files. If a user places files into that folder from the PC, then those files will be shown in that folder via that app so that they can be shared/attached etc. Same goes for files/attachments being downloaded... if they are not recognized by the OS, put them in that folder. Essentially, this would work like an SD card segment inside the internal storage. Maybe in the future this can be utilized just like an SD card and .xap files can be installed directly from here as well.
Please add file manager like you do on previous versions... And add option for external storage for apps & attachments from store. We need it!
We need fully opened file manager to make all operations with files as WM 6.5 had.
File manager support for WP office files, pictures & music

Pls add file manager for nokia lumia 800 .
I am missing it so much.
Plz add file manager. Everyone like to manage their file/ i can use my phone for file storage.
loving the very lively fluid interface of WP8 but lack of file manager may push me away from this ultimately
I'd like to have a WP8 smartphone but for me a file manager is absolutely needed, inclouding for the MicroSD, opening files from it and copying tree directories from the PC to the smartphone (or at least to the SD).

File manager should have a inline downloader so that if we paste a link of a file it will download to a specific or user define location in SD or Phone memory, this download should be done by the OS in background like the store app which is flawlessly implemented without any degradation of performance
Oh i want it!
Its a essencial thing in a smartphone!
I've been using Lumia 710 since December and I must confess that it's been very frustrating without a file manager. I'm going for an android ASAp.
Please do something microsoft. Add file manager ASAP.
Microsoft Windows phone have no option for attach MP3 & Video's in WhatsApp software....:(
because file manager is the big problem nokia n Windows phone....:(
add the ability to move your apps to your sd card please for the htc 8s and other phones that only have 4 GB it would help as the other folder takes up so much space
How can we delete corrupted files if we cannot access the files on our WP.
no never add file manager to windows phone, its not android you idiot
Better loose our hope that Microsoft will listen to us. I'm deciding to sell it for half rate. Microsoft will not add file manager.. inspite of its secure OS.
Most people buying and selling their windows phones within a week because of lack of file manager.
Plz add file manager
very very bad windows phone
Ware my Bluetooth received videos & files????????
Are you listening to this, Microsoft? 34,675 votes as I write. Why did you discontinue support for my Win 6.5 phone which DID have a file manager, only to present me with this dumbed-down games, music and pics obsessed pocket fun machne?
What is the purpose of a suggestion box if you are never going to look at it. This suggestion has got a whooping 34,000+ votes and it is high time you realize it means something. It has been amongst the top voted suggestions for quite some time now and yet nothing seems to have been done about it. Paints a very bad picture about microsoft. If not having a file manager in the first place was bad, creating a suggestion box only for the sake of doing it was much much worse. Seriously very poor show microsoft.
All Windows Phone smartphones don't have file manager, before I go for Lumia 520, I had read some comments about file manager. Yes, the lack of file manager make frustating, but it is still OK.
