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.

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
