    • Theme color settings

      A theme setting which is more than just pre-assigned colors will be pretty useful. A custom picker like in Paint MS where you can set your own theme color will be a great option. Because pre-assigned 21 colors won't be enough eventually, and since as a male person, I don't choose pink magenta and its tones, the options are even less.

          • Windows Phone 8.1

            Привет)) Мне интересно, в нашей операционной системе( я не опечатался... именно в нашей, ведь вы ее делаете для нас-пользователей) Windows Phone 8.1 есть проблема, и очень значимая, на которую не ответил ни один форум. Это папка прочее! что же с ней делать? в течении пары месяцев она забивается, и простому пользователю ее не очистить даже через компьютер. Во первых- не могли бы вы разЪяснить что это за файлы? а во вторых... почему же мы не можем очистить в ручную папку прочее? что там храниться? и третье - какой смысл был делать установку приложений на флешку? если ее через пару месяцев…

                • Caller ID issue, not really a feature suggestion, possible a glitch

                  Noticed when a local caller called, even the caller's name saved in phone book with +country code, the call ID still displays as "Unknown caller".Interestinglyinthesmalldisplayshowthecallername.

                    • Allow Cortana to Know My Schedule

                      A real personal assistant wouldn't need every detail of my life to be on my calendar to know where I am and what I am doing. She would know that I drive to work by 7am every day and arrive back by 4pm. Between those hours I am at work.

                      I'd really like the option to set "blocks" of time when I always do certain things. These aren't appointments or meetings on the calendar. Just blocked off for specific daily tasks. Like "work time" every day at the same time.

                      Based on these blocks it would be great to have…

                        • a Nokia Lumia 800

                          My advise to anyone considering buying a Nokia Lumia 800 is DON'T. My advise to anyone unfortunate enough to have already brought one is throw it in the bin. it's the worst phone ever. the only good things are Nokia Drive and Google. The fact that you can ONLY use Zunethe worst program in the world don't help. the two combined make the biggest head ache in the world. steer clear of them both, I have had my Lumia 800 for nearly 9 months now and I can honestly say I wish I had never had it

                            For kids corner or guest, we should be allowed to make calling available on it. Maybe just have it so they are only able to dial numbers and certain contacts that we choose

                                  Please, release the input method API to make 3rd party input method become possible.
                                  We really need more input methods support.

                                      • old 808 pureview photoeditor on lumia 1020 nokia creative studio

                                        Please renew the old functions seen in Nokia 808 photo editor. Especially automatic levels regulations and automatic contrast regulations. I've ported my 1020 shots on 808 and with this tool the yellow filter were gone and the picture were perfect.
                                        Please make it on Nokia creative studio app and add some tool that can make a noise reduction (on Symbian there was Noise Autofix by STOIK and was just perfect)

                                        Miss all this things with a contrast, sharpness and lights regulations too
