    thanks. Is there any way to make the Zune tile inactive? Its the only one of my top 8 that flips. The non uniformity bugs me ha

    -After pressing the arrow to access the list of apps, you can press again (in the same position) to bring up the alphabetical menu.

    I really don't get that one ... can someone please explain it to me?

    he just means that after you tap the arrow in the top right of the home page to get to the list of apps, you can tap again in that same place (or next to any other letter) and bring up the alphabetical index. is that any better?

    Basically tap in a true black space that isn't taken up by an app title or the space after it.

    So he ment that in case, if you already have more than 41 apps. I thought that maybe there is a way to get that letters shown if you have less than 41 apps. :)

    Diagnostics App (call "##634#" from phone screen enables all manner of good tools) - Excellent for quick check before accepting a new phone in store.

    One ongoing usefull tool is Battery Status: This allows some evaluation of the quality of a particular charger or cable (or single unit charger/cable). Also, note different results when testing a USB micro cable from one or another charger, vs. USB port on your computer. Hmm, how about comparing various USB ports on one, or a couple of computers, eg desktop vs notebook . . .

    Hello
    My car audio system reads my text messages while I'm connected via BT, and gives me the option to call the person back with voice command or reply with a text using VR.
    It works very well and am very impressed with this function.

    So I posted #1 on another thread and was surprised at how unknown it seemed to be so ill post that along with a couple other tips here.

    Highlighting text in internet explorer and hitting the search button will search Bing with your highlighted text.

    While listening to any kind of music, changing the volume brings up the expanded volume bar with the currently playing audio. Tap the title and it will take you into whatever app is playing the music.

    Pressing the back button gets rid of the volume bar quickly.

    There is an app called Stop The Music! That will remove any music that may be listed on he volume bar so that it goes back to its small size.

    So there are mine. Anybody got any to add?

    You can affect the automatic screen brightness. Depending on if you have brightness set to low, medium or high when you turn on auto it will behave differently.

    If you have brightness on high and then turn on auto brightness the screen will keep itself much brighter.

    If you have brightness on low and then turn on auto brightness the screen will keep itself on very low brightness at most times.

    May very well be that you are setting the "roof" for the brightness and not the sensitivity. But you sure can affect it. So even if you are using auto brightness it will matter if the manual setting is on low/medium/high when you turn on auto.

    Here is a little one I found by accident...
    When you are typing and you need to move the curser. Just Tap+Hold the TextBox area and the text cursor will pop up (It'll show up as your theme color) and you will be able to Move and place the curser anywhere you need it in the text box. This works in Messaging, Email, or even typing web addresses into IE. It works anywhere there is a textbox.

    this does not work.
    I still have to put my password to unlock the phone. It doesn't work the same way the camera button does.
    It also doesn't work if you have your screen turned off. Camera does work.

    By the way, this is on lumia 710

    I've got one on the keyboard, but i'm not sure if its not so well (it was for me)

    If you doble tap the shift button, enables caps lock until you single tap shift button again.

    hope it helps.:lol:

    If you get a notification at the top of the screen and you want to get rid of it without opening it, just flick it to the side and it will vanish!

    I've actually been in touch with MS about this because I noticed that photos weren't transferring to apps in the right orientation (take a landscape photo > options > applications > Thumba Photo Editor (for example) would open the photo in the editor rotated).

    The same thing was happening when sharing it in (say) Carbon... They had me make videos of the process and narrowed it down to bad code in individual apps (because it doesn't happen across EVERY app). It's down to app devs to fix this one, apparently.

    not sure if these have been added so here they are:
    - hit the search button and hit the eye symbol to scan qr codes and translate text (no need for any apps)

    - while viewing pictures zoom out all the way to view your pictures in film strip view

    srry if these have been mentioned

    of course, you need only enable your wifi while Zune is on. You should not enable your cellular date

    I just discovered this function on my 710, and I don't see it on the first post, so I may have missed it: If you get an incoming call when your phone's lying on it's back with the screen up, flip it phone over with the screen down and that call continues to ring, but is in silent mode. If you leave your phone with the screen down, the ringer will ring again at the next incoming call.

    I just think it's a fun, random feature instead of hitting ignore or the ringer button. But then again, this could be a feature everyone knows about except me.

    When you're adjusting volume, you can press backspace to immediately get back to your app, negating the need for Stop The Music.
