          • Pin Message Thread to Start

            First off, I want to say I'm a lover of all things Microsoft and all things Windows. I run an all Windows production environment at work, I have three Windows Phones 8 (one is 8.1 now!), and all my other devices are all Windows.

            Okay, now that I got that out of me... ;)

            Here's what I got. I think it would be useful, neat, more efficient, etc. to be able to Pin a text thread to the Start Screen. Most people have a handful of people that they text All the time. Spouses, parents, best friends, and so on…

                • Independent Volume control in Windows 8 mobile OS is must

                  Independent volume controls for Media, Ringtone, Alarm and Music are must in any mobile device. I am totally embarrassed when I found my Nokia Lumia 720 does not have screen volume controls to manage. I would request to Windows tech forum to take up this at the earliest to release the update to install.

                    • Wi-Fi media sync between PC and Windows Phone 8 Devices

                      Can you add wi-fi sync function to WP 8, because this is shame when I see people which syncing their WP 7 Devices with Zune using wi-fi network. Unfortunatly I must use USB to sync my Music between PC and HTC 8S

                        • Make Skype to link to my phone contacts

                          Skype only allows adding people by email id or skype id and it is very frustrating to not know which of my friends are on Skype already unless we search for each one of them and link.

                          Worse part is Skype allows multiple Skype ids per email id and it is very hard to determine which one of them is actively being used.

                          So make Skype pull contact details from phone/outlook and automatically add the contacts with valid Skype to my Skype contacts as well (Similar to Whatsapp, Viber, Facebook, etc)

                            I love the app store so much, but as much as i love it there alot of changes need, like The Simpsons tapped out game, is it possible for you to try contact them and maybe see if it can happen as so many people who have Nokia seem to be going mad for it.

                            • Copy & past in all Apps. SMS read access for developers

                              I'm a developerand i wish to have access to the sms DB to backup sms or translate incoming sms. Likewise, I can not understand why applications can disable copy & past function. The best example is the Microsoft Facebook app for WP7. Why i cant copy a message what i have received? That is more than crazy. A better camera app because the images from my HTC HD7 are very very bad!

                                        • seperate alarm volume

                                          I want to be able to set alarm volume without having to make sure I turned my volume up after playing a bed time game or watching a YouTube video.
