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.

Mango Tips & Tricks
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
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.___________________
