  1. Add an option to contacts to save a voice recording of person's name

    Add an option to contacts, to save a voice recording of person's name. This could be used for voice command when calling a contact instead of user guessing what would the English pronunciation of persons name would be. With contact name recorded user could pronounce contacts name normally even for non supported languages or even use a nick name of the full name, not to even mention that there would be far less frustration trying to call a contact hands free. Nokia phones had feature like this 15 years ago.

        • Windows Phone Start Screen should be exactly like the desktop version of Windows 7 or Windows 10

          I am an ardent Windows Phone user since many years now and I want that Windows Phone or Windows 10 start screen for mobile should be exactly like the desktop version of Windows 10. Please don't put the tiles on the start screen like the current Windows Phone 8.1.
          Here are the steps through which the phone must go right from the booting that is starting of the Windows Phone or Windows 10 for phones -
          1. when the phone boot or start there should be the current lock screen exactly as it is now on Windows Phone 8.1.

            • UNICODE NON-ENGLISH Fonts for Social Web Experience forMillions of Users around the World!

              It is very disappointing that Windows Mobile versions (MANGO/ TANGO etc) do NOT at least have 'one' UNICODE FONT of NON-ENGLISH Languages in this Modern area of Mobile Social Interaction. Cheers for Android for recognising and catering for this Large user Community and the Social Trend.

              What is the point of Fantastic integration to facebook in Windows 7.5 if you CAN'T READ the stuff? Today's facebook (for example) has stuff posted in NON-ENGLISH Languages as much as the content in English.

              (Don't understand the Smarts behind excluding the population of South Asia and the South East (which constitutes Millions of…

              • Add a free studio-recording app to the phones

                Apple devices have GarageBand. It's cool stuff like that that makes people want iPhones over WinPhones. Make something like that for wp8.

                    • No Call Blocking feature in nokia lumia apps. or phone

                      Like in android there is true caller which provides call and message blocking features.

                      In nokia store there is true caller app too but it doesnt provide call blocking feature. They should add this feature. It is must required n a phone

                                  • Wifi advanced configuration for hidden network

                                    I have recently switched from a acer with windows mobile 6.5 to a lumia 920.

                                    I have noted with disappointment that the phone with Wphone8 immediately loses the connection to a protected network / hidden with WPA code & address range defined in the router menu (for security reasons)
                                    while windows mobile 6.5 could do this thanks to the great possibility to edit the Wifi options!

                                    serious lack!
                                    you need to remedy this as soon as possible, or we disappointed WP8 sconsiglieremo purchase.

                                    nokia lumia 920 is a ferrari that travels with the handbrake on!

                                        • I need to date/time my photos, Can't be that hard. ALL other phones do

                                          Need to date time stamp photos. Date shows, TIME dose not.
