Arrow ▐ 3.9.2011▐ ★UPDATED★Awesome WP7&WP7.5 Tips&Tricks★▐ >>>ALL NEW TIPS FOR MANGO!!<<<

I just wanted to post a couple of helpful tips&tricks for those who are new to the WP7 OS. If I helped please "donate" your time by clicking the thanks button!

Update: All new tips&tricks that I have found playing around on Mango Beta. Have fun!

Awesome Windows 7.5 Tips&Tricks
Custom Ringtones

1. Copy MP3 or WMA to Zune Collection. Choose Edit, and type in manually under Genre "Ringtone". The song must be less than 40 seconds and smaller than 1MB.

2. Go to Settings -> Ringtones + Sounds, tap Ringtone. Your custom ringtone will appear under a new tree called "Custom", above "Windows Phone"

Note that it is identified by the filename, rather than the track title.

Also, you can tap and HOLD a ringtone, and Delete will be offered (but only on the Custom ones; preloaded ones grey out delete).

Windows Live Messenger

Pick Messaging, slide right to Online. Set Chat Status (icon at bottom), hit +, and send a message to any Messenger contact. And/or if anyone sends you an MSN, you get a ding just like a SMS, and it appears under Messaging.

Mango automatically made my Windows Live account that my phone is registered under, which is also my Messenger account, work. Others have noted that it's not possible to have a second Messenger account -- only your PRIMARY Windows Live account is linked to Messenger.

Facebook chat is set up also from Messaging -> Online. Some people have had trouble with this... read down to see some possible solutions.

Voice Activated SMS/Messaging

To allow Voice recognition from Messaging (like SMS, Messenger) while on Carrier Data, go to Settings -> Speech and check Enable Speech Recognition over Network.

Put on a headset; leave your phone on the home screen. When someone sends you a Messenger, it announces that the person has sent you a message, Read It or Ignore. If you say, "Read it", the phone reads the message. You then have an opportunity to reply via speech!

Visual Voicemail

Evidently, this is in Settings -> Phone (or Phone app, slide up, call settings). But it doesn't show up for everyone -- it's carrier dependent (doesn't show up for Telus phone on Fido for me).

Exchange/Gmail Server Search

To search the server for older (for example, Exchange) go to Outlook, click the on-screen search button, make a search. At the bottom of the results, tap "search more in Outlook". When the server search is done, at the bottom of the results, you'll see "get more results" and "search all folders". Woohoo!

Bing Visual Search -- and OCR!

Tap Bing key. Click eyeball. You can snap QR codes, Microsoft codes, or TEXT. If you snap text, it will then detect it, and you can translate it (for example, from French to English). But as someone mentioned, you can translate from English to English... and the results come as text that you can then Copy and Paste! Quick and easy cloud OCR that you have to see to believe.

Skydrive, Office

Go to Office. Slide over to Locations and SkyDrive. You can see any of the documents on your SkyDrive, and edit things like Word. It's perfect.

Notes (OneNote, synchronized with SkyDrive and your Desktop OneNote as long as you're saving to Web) is really slick. Office 365 and SharePoint are under Locations.

Easy Ones

Music Controls - This one's easy. Play a song, pause it. Hit lock key. Controls are on the wallpaper. Unlock, hit volume keys -- Controls appear.

Multitasking - Hold down Back button. It's a beautiful implementation. To remove a task from the list, pick it, then hit back button once.

Outlook Threads - Just tap a conversation thread to expand it.

Outlook Account Linking - Outlook -> ... -> Link Inboxes

App Grouping - tap the letters above the groups of apps, just like the phone book (tapping "a" gets you all the letters, tapping "s" jumps to Settings)

App Find - tap magnifying glass on apps list

IE9 -- OMG. Best Mobile Browser Ever. 'nuff said. But is it possible to turn off Address Bar in Landscape? Takes up lots of space.

People/Groups - Tap People hub, tap Family or +. You can make your own Groups, and then SMS or email everyone in the group that has SMS or email. Or quickly call them, since they get big tiles.

People/History - Tap a contact in the People hub, slide to the right, and see History. It shows call/messaging history, and "search Outlook" at the bottom.

UPDATE:
======
To make Traffic work, just set region/location to English (United States).

10 Awesome Windows 7 Tips&Tricks
1. Using the Windows Phone 7 voice controls
Press and hold the Windows key at the bottom of your screen and you can start talking to your phone. Try saying "Open Calendar", to see what we mean.

2. Adding apps to the Start screen
When you are in the long applications list on your phone pressing on an icon and holding brings up a contextual menu that gives you a series of options, one of which is "pin to start". Press on this option and the app will be shown on the Start screen.

3. Add people to the start page
No it's not just about adding apps to the start page, but people too. Find them in your contacts book, click on the "pin" icon, and they'll be added to your Start page so you can speed dial them whenever you need.

4. Moving your tiles around
Adding a new app or tile to the Start screen will place it right at the bottom. If you want it to be elsewhere, press and hold on the tile in question and then you are free to move it up and down and rearrange your tiles to best suit your needs.

5. Removing apps from the Start screen
You like the app, but you don't really want it on your Start screen anymore. No worries. Hold your finger on the tile in question for a couple of seconds and when it highlights press the no pin icon in the top right-hand corner.

6. Uninstalling apps
You've tried it and you don't like it. No problem. Head over to the menu list and press down on the app in question until you get the contextual menu. Select uninstall and you're done.

7. Rating and reviewing apps
You really love the new app you've downloaded, so much so that you want to rate and review it so anyone else interested knows whether it's any good or not. With Windows Phone 7 you don't have to wait until you delete it to rate it, you can rate and review it at any time. Press and hold down on the app in question until that contextual menu appears and then choose "Rate and review". It will bring up another page allowing you to have your say and give it a rating out of five. Easy peasy.

8. How to change the theme
If you've got your Windows Phone 7 phone from Vodafone the theme is going to be all red, O2 is dishing out blue themes and Orange, orange ones. An all red themed phone might be a bit much (we hear you), but fret not as you can change the colour of the tiles and other features in the Setting area. Zip on over to the menu list, select Settings, and then Theme. Here you can choose the colour of the background and the accent colour. Background options are "Black" or "White" while you'll get nine accent colours to pick from. Lime, anyone?

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=942767


9. Swipe to the left
Windows Phone 7 is built around the idea of panoramic tiles that you swipe to reveal more content off screen. It's always worth seeing if you can swipe to the left as there might be more stuff waiting to be revealed.

10. What are the dots?
Whenever you see three dots at the bottom of the screen, that's a menu for more options. In photo playback for example, it will give you the options to delete the image or perform a quick upload.

For those who need access to a US market, or wherever...
1st, when you link your live account to the phone, you'll automatically get an e-mail from Microsoft phone 7 in your inbox.
this had some useful links in it. for example, I didn't download the full zune package, but another version witch works as well and is quite a bit smaller.

2nd, create an extra live account with false location settings, i set mine on Beverly hills, California, so you can access marketplace, xbox live etc.
(you can add an other account for your e-mail settings etc)

Quote:
Search Button
Because the HD2 has different hardware keys than the WP7, the home key for the HD2 is the search button for Windows Phones. Depending on where you are, pressing the home button will give you different search results.

HOMESCREEN:
Will open BING-search(Many custom WP7 ROM's have changed default search to Google).
MUSIC&VIDEOS:
Enables search for videos, music etc.
MARKETPLACE:
Searches for Music and Applications available for purchase in the Market

Transparent Lockscreen Wallpaper
This is the link to the wallpaper:
http://phone7.files.wordpress.com/2010/12/clawpaper.png

Simply send yourself an email with the image attached, then open the email on your phone and save the image. When you view the image, you have an option of setting it as your wallpaper(The Zune software only seems to sync JPEG’s)

Click on the PNG attachment and then wait a few moments. Once the ‘cancel’ button next the attachment disappears, click again. This should open it in the picture viewer with the option to set as wallpaper.

Until the lock screen has started any animation, the home screen will appear black. Presumably this is because the home screen isn’t loaded until the lock screen has been touched, which makes sense. Secondly, it doesn’t work if you have a password on the lock screen. Having a password is obviously a good idea, so it’s a shame this doesn’t work with the password.

Also.....

1) MULTITASKING (OR LET ME CALL IT "BACK IN TIME")

When you press the back button when on home screen it goes to all you recent apps you opened or edited before....Keep pressing the back button will go further more back! I Think this is because when i wanted to exit an app i pressed the start button(to go to Home screen instantly) and not the back button; so it stays in memory/or recording your steps you did before!


2) CHANGING PICTURES APP BACKGROUND:

When you go to Pictures you can change the Background to your likes using your images stored into phone... Just Hold your finger on the screen and a window will pop up... it says Change Background and "Change it for me" (automatic Randomly change)..Press change my background and pick your favorite photo/image.... Now it should change in the application and when you go to Home Screen you can also see this image on the Pictures tab....Love it!!!!!!!!!!

3) Battery and signal.

When on Home screen or whenever screen you are just slide down your finger starting from the Top of the screen...It should slide down the battery,signal,wifi icons e,t,c!
I love XDA. QUIETLY BRILLIANT!

Press volume button and audioplayer should show in a bar at the top and you can pause the song
- Why some album cover arts are wrong, or black in Zune?
Don't know, haven't noticed that yet
- Is there a way to change the music/audio settings (equalizer, bass, treble ?)
Download HTC App Sound Enhancer, allows some changes to be made.

By default, all of your Facebook friends appear as contacts on your phone. If you have lots of Facebook friends showing up in your contacts list, you can choose to only show friends who are already contacts on your phone. (So, if a Facebook friend is also a contact in Windows Live or Google, their Facebook information will still show up in your contacts list. All other friends will be hidden from the list.)

1 From Start, flick left to the Applications list and then press Settings.

2 Press Applications and then press People.

3 Under Include Facebook friends as contacts, press Only add Facebook information to existing contacts to filter out Facebook friends who don't already have a contact card on your phone.

Note

This option only filters Facebook friends from your contacts list in People. It doesn't change whose social updates you'll see in What's new.

The Windows Phone 7 will then just sync the changes automatically from your Windows Live account.

or you can look here http://www.microsoft.com/windowsphon...old-phone.aspx

Hope this helps.

It didn't make any noticeable changes in Outlook.
I then set up my Hotmail account in Outlook which synced with all my existing Hotmail contacts (all 10 of them!)

I then proceeded to copy all my Outlook contacts to my Hotmail contacts in Outlook and then synced the Mozart with my Windows Live ID (ie my Hotmail) and all the Contacts that I copied synced across as well!

Long and inconvenient for my liking, but saves having to enter them all individually one by one.

I initially thought it didn't work, because when I logged into my Hotmail on the web, it doesn't update the Contacts on there, but after syncing with my phone, it was fine.

I'm now going to try the same for the Calender as well. EDIT: Works for Calender as well!

Hope that helps.
FM Radio.

When you are in the pictures gallery, if you upload a picture to a service like skydrive off of your phone then... it's 'up' loaded in the gallery if you zoom out.



I thought it was really simple but really awesome lol...

(It's not persistent though, only for that viewing of the gallery...)
pinning.

Tip is then: Zoom in on the page logo etc!



e.g. XDA:
change the picture on picture tile

Handy Tip #2: the traditional notification bar (signal strength, 3G, WiFi status etc) is mostly hidden by default unless something changes. Tap near the top of the screen to temporarily show all this information (for example, if you want to make sure you're connected to WiFi before downloading an app or an update). On my HD7, the sweet spot seems to be the HTC logo at the top of the screen.

Handy Tip #3: To remove an app from your phone, press and hold on its icon in the app list and select uninstall. You can also rate a downloaded app for the marketplace here.

Handy Tip #4 (possibly only applies to O2 HD7 users, maybe only in Ireland): If Internet Explorer is having trouble loading particular websites (for example, imgur), add the apn "internet" in "mobile network" under settings.

For me the headset & AV service work perfectly, straight away.

Turn on bluetooth, pair with your PC, and touch again to connect.


Apparently my old HTC Desire had these services (AV Source and Headset) but it always paired but didn't maintain a connection... no obvious reason, didn't bother to look up why lol.
I was just excited when as soon as I connected with my PC with WP7, the Headset service asked for permission and after that all phone audio came through!

Old news to some but it is really cool having your phone blast music through your PC speakers wirelessly absolutely no effort or hassle at all!

Edit: Even before the phone has fully booted it connects to the PC you even hear the keypresses to unlock the phone... simple things lol.
Only Alarm sound.

PS: I tried the same process with an E71 and had the same successful results. All recent Symbian phones should work as it appears they can handle the encryption and password. The card is now happily back in my HTC EVO.

There was a segment about getting rid of most Facebook contacts, how about the contacts that come with the default email?

AKA the one you cant delete or change sync settings for.

This is and always will be a site for developers, pure and simple. Without them we are nothing, without them there would be no reason for XDA Developers to exist; we should never ever forget that. Without them this place would not be called XDA-Developers but something else, e.g Mobile Phone User Support Services For Ungrateful Nerds.

Default gray album art in zune: maybe the solution?

i have found something with my german HD7 device. I dont know if this is the solution for this problem but you could try it. Sometimes i have gray album art in the now playing screen on the phone,, but in the history and on the albums, the album art is visible. You have to look at Phone Seetings > Apps > Music and Videos > Connect with Zune enabled (you see the album art), disabled (the album art is grayed out).

But i have another problem: Sometimes i want to call someone, or someone wants to call me, i pick up the phone and can here the other part, but the other part could not hear me. the only solution i have found is it to restart the phone. i have this issue only if im directly under a cell tower. are anyone else with the same problem?
