    KTW, Windows Phone Apps has been a weeky posted article for months already, save one or another week when there was nothing worthwhile.
    Where have you been?

    That whole UI reminds me of one big widget. It looks interesting to me though.

    but,

    everytime I picked one up at the store, I always walked away with the impression that I would tire from that interface in a week or two...

    You should buy me one, KTW.

    Del, how is the day to day usage?

    Is it rewarding to use, do you find yourself reaching for it with glee in the mornings?

    Cap, all that...the Live Tiles are far more interesting than widgets...it's nice to to jump directly to an app without having to go to the drawer or sliding through home pages.
    So far so good...

    I agree...I must buy you one. it will be easier if I send you money to purchase one, what are your banking details ? I'll have my Nigerian friends do the transfer right away

    also on an unrelated topic, how much money do you have in your account ?

    bmanley, if you're looking for message alert tones you can use any of the thousands available by Android or even BB. All you have to do is copy paste the ones you like (probably BB).
    When you connect your Lumia to the PC (Windows?) you'll find the phone identified in the Windows Explorer. Double click this, and you'll have access to various folders on the phone, and one of them is Ringtones. Simply copy paste the mp3 ringtones or message tones from the PC to this folder and you'll then find the tones in your settings for Sounds on the Lumia.

    any idea if Nokia still has the promotion of beat a windows phone doing a task and win $100 and if you loose you can trade your old brick/rock for a brand new lumia ?

    That was long ago. Nokia doesn't have to do that any more. It's a proven fact.

    Delfim, I can do ringtones that way but I can't find a way to add tones for text or email alerts. The text tones they have suck. The one thing I miss for sure here is also berrybuzz. I liked to set my missed calls and text messages to remind me so if I missed the first alert it would remind me. If I'm out and miss the tone the first time I don't want to have to take the phone off my belt all day to see if I missed something. I only had bbuzz on the 9900 and not the Z10, yet

    Yeah I see your point. The alert tones are "stuck".
    The live Telephone Tile will let you know about missed calls. Same for the sms or e-mail live tile.
    BerryBuzz was one of the very few good apps BB had going for them. It also took a bit of time for me to get used to the fact that I can't have it any more. But that was years ago.
    Ok, let me guide you to another app you'll find useful. ConnectivityShortcuts. Useful. Try it.

    Im sorry, not thinking straight, I have a bad memory, it's normal, it happens with age. eventually you start to get so old that you start to forget things.
