Hi, I've seen people saying when they start up their phone its really easy to sync and all their contacts are showing up.
My phone comes on Tuesday. I have the Windows 8 release preview. Is there a way I can input all that info now so when I receive the phone it will sync all the contacts and music and stuff?
Do I need the full version of Windows 8?

The contacts are all pulled from you Windows Live ID. All you need to do is log into the hotmail/outlook on the web and edit your contacts there (I don't know how contacts are handled with Windows 8 PC OS, but I'm guessing contacts on there also sync with your Windows Live ID). It will all be automatically pulled to your phone when you setup the same Windows Live ID on your phone in the accounts section.
Also, WP8 will pull/merge contact info from your social websites as well, such as Facebook. You'll need to setup the facebook account on the WP8 for it to pull those contacts as well (note: This is not the facebook app, this is the facebook integrated into WP8 itself).

If you are just looking to manually add music to the phone, you should just be able to store it on your computer normally. I've upgraded my computers to Windows 8 so I've been using the WP8 app to access the content of my phone. Moving content over is just a matter of adding it via the app.

I'd actually like to upload some music for streaming. I've never streamed music to my phone before so I'd like to try it out. I'm anticipating it'll take some time so it would be great to have it all uploaded beforehand.
What would be the best way to go about streaming music on the 920?
