Mango Tips & Tricks

We know Mango devices will come shortly, but in the meantime, and for those lucky ones using any of the Mango beta 2 available versions, XDA member Talys prepared a thread containing some useful tips and tricks to get the best out of your Windows Phone 7. It covers topics such as adding ringtones, configuring Live messenger, using Voice Activated SMS/Messaging, configuring Exchange/Gmail Server Search, amongst many more.

If you have any tip or trick please step in and share it with all the members. This way, the original thread will increase it´s richness.

Well, Mango Beta is here, meaning there are lots of new cool features. Some of them are either buried or not obvious. Here are some that I’ve found so far:

UPDATE: Thank you for everyone’s participation. I have added several tips based on comments in the discussion

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).

Continue to the original thread to get more tips.

In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...

Which App for iPhone Do You Wish Was on Android?

Only a few years ago, it was normal for a major app release to be available for iOS but come months later to Android. That seems to no longer be the case, as Android has advanced tremendously with Google putting a huge effort into its Play Store and ecosystem. However, while the majority of major app releases are now made available for both platforms at the same time, there are a few iOS exclusives that some of us wish were on our favorite mobile OS (Hyperlapse comes to mind). Let us know which apps for the iPhone you wish were on Android.
