Got a Lumia 900 yesterday. So far like it alot. There were a lot of apps I used on Android, and want to know if there is a comparable replacement through windows mobile...
1. Wireless data transfer. Do I have to plug my phone into a PC and rune Zune if I want to transfer media from a pc to my phone? If so thats very cumbersome.
2. a good gtalk app/client?

1. no you DO NOT need to plug your phone into your PC to sync , we can do WIFI sync BUT it requires you to plug your phone into a AC charge

Thanks for the info.
I'm looking for less of a sync option and more of a wireless data transfer option. Like if a friend has a document on his PC, and no cables are around and I need it on my phone. Android has wireless data transfer...didn't know if WP Mobile has something like this...

I was able to transfer my contacts via bluetooth from my old iPhone to my Lumia...why isn't there an app for file transfering this way yet?!

you can fix by changing the pict on the phone itself instead of on live.com
I hope that helps.

i just tried on mine, if i put a clear picture that is on the phone on to a profile it shows up cleanly
i searched on the net and found that apparently if you have google account it could cause your images to scale down, do you have gmail on the phone?

The issue with crappy resolution contact photos is because of Gmail. It resizes them to 96x96 then when it syn'c back to your phone, you now have a 96x96 picture that is blown up to the size you see on your screen when they call.
I moved all my contacts to my hotmail and replaced the pictures afterward and no issues since.

As far as a good gtalk app/client goes, try GoVoice or MetroTalk. Both have free versions.
Personally, I prefer MetroTalk because it can give you up to date/live notifications. It is a bit laborious to set up, but they have great instructions at the app website. Once set up, I believe it is second to none on ANY platform.
