the keyboard too. what a pleasure.

I am with MS (and Apple) on the sysreq thing. less fragmentation and more phones that 'work' instead of going through tons of tweaks to make a phone enjoyable.

About outlook, try this. i dont use outlook though -
How to Sync Windows Phone 7 with Outlook - YouTube

@godspeed4476
like iphone has firmwares, Win phones have roms, which you need to install to access new features. you can simply connect to zune and update your phone. i am sure Mango is available now

1. outlook connector works(sometimes you have to pray) but just that. totally unreliable.
2. firmwares and roms and totally different things in technical parlance . I dont know how apple works but if upgrading the firmware in apple means getting new OS version then thats completely wrong.
In comparison with a PC, a firmware is like a BIOS of the mobo whereas ROM(again technically a wrong word) is used to denote the OS that you install.

I agree with the positive points absolutely so won't mention them again.. but for th egripes..
1. Yeah, no storage mode does make it a little hurting, specially as I use Android on my HD2..

2. Outlook sync is very important for companies and as I dont use it, I dont miss it.. but for enterprise users it is a big concern.
as for th eshameful part, I tried using to sync my googla contacts too, LOLz.. but then I imported all my contacts through the web interface of my Live email account and voila. I have every contact in my Live contact list.. so I am a little less shameful now..

I will be waiting for your expert opinions dude, what fun it must be to sideload the apps... unfortunaltely we can't do that..




What is a ROM.. ?? ROM is the Mobile OS.. in most simplest of explanations.. there are different versions of it just like desktop OS..
To install a new update ( as I lilke to call it, as ROM is basically for android ) launch Zune desktop software, connect your phone to the PC and let it be shown in Zune.. the drivers and all will be downloaded and installed, so don't worry about them
7008 is a very early stock !!
I got mine in NoDo 7390 already on it..
read my views about updating and mind the points.. there is no other way except Zune.. I don't want you to feel lost.
as for the seller, the buyer can always ask him to bubble wrap his parcel, I think he will do that..
1. storage mode is available as a hack. I dont need it so dont use it. (i have a miniature 32GB pendrive. slips into wallet)
2. if you have ever worked with outlook mobile sync you wont use anything else. Even for home users. sadly not available for WP7.
(although from my sources i have found that it is one of the upcoming features for WP7, calendars and contacts may sync from zune , fine enough for me)
3. sideloading apps is fun, there is a limit of 10 at a time but thats ok cause i dont work on 10 apps simultaneously. 4-5 tops.



People who are in a confused state, let me clarify this. Mango has been released publicly.
You dont need to hack your phone to get mango onto it.
and mango, let me tell you, is SWEET!

You must update your device to get new features and to plug security issues.
for example, before mango GPS was always on and had unintentional user tracking. It is fixed with mango
by the way mango is just the release name or windows phone 7.5 OS


to know more on what each update has check this:
Windows Phone Update History | Windows Phone OS Versions | Windows Phone 7

and to know whats the latest update check this:
Windows Phone US Update Schedule | Mobile Software Updates | Windows Phone 7

Re: Full Detailed Thread for Samsung Focus, SGH I917.

@prajith
Yup they are different , but as far as apple is concerned , fw update addresses issues or adds features. In general win7 roms do the same.
I dont think i cud have put it in a simple way for godspeed who uses an iphone.

Re: Full Detailed Thread for Samsung Focus, SGH I917.

@godspeed4476Yes I am using 8GB class 4 Sandisk card and it is awesome with this. don't use any other brand or class.. although class 6 cards have been reported to be working.
@prajith, I have clicked the pics and will be uploading after some time, you can have a look anytime.. there is no hurry.

Re: Full Detailed Thread for Samsung Focus, SGH I917.

Wtf? That means I would have to reinstall the update after the reset? Damn! The whole process takes about 45-50 mins.
Thanks for the headsup regarding the mmc, would get a class 4 8gb today

Re: Full Detailed Thread for Samsung Focus, SGH I917.

Ok.. I want to change the default email account that I used to login to Wp7 on my phone..
say it is xyz@live.com and its locale when I signed up for it was US.. so I can't change it.. I have tried changing it everywhere but no success.. ( everywhere means everywhere.. live, zune, xbox etc )
So I wanted to buy stuff from the marketplace, I tried to do that throughh phone and it gave me an option of choosing the US address. and credit card.. no option of changing the country in adding a credit card.
so I changed my locale in my computer and now I dont even see the marketplace in my zune !!!
I have heard that marketplace was launched in India but I am not seeing it !! even when I sent an apps link zune says this is not available in your locale...

so I am stuck !!!!
