    • Eliminate missed call sound when phone is in vibrate

      The phone (HTC 8X) makes an audible notification sound for a missed call even whenthe phone is in vibrate-only. If I put the phone in vibrate-only it means I DON'T want it to make sounds!

                                  Windows Phone should allow us to download our apps, save and open them on SD card, without getting our internal memory.

                                      • Option to turn off automatic changes to my music library while Xbox music is on (Windows Phone 8)

Very complicated, because songs appeared multiple times, and the mp3 tags weren't perfect and had to be rewritten because the Windows Phone is very meticulous with that, and.. yeah Zune doesn't work anymore.

                                        Anyway, when I turned Xbox music on, it destroyed my music library!

So please, let me turn off this "feature", because…

                                        • Cortana should allow calendar reminders through during quiet hours

                                          During quit hours Cortana will disable calendar appointment reminders which can be really important when you are at work but not at the computer.
