    I think this might be stupid but can I suppose incoming call will stop music like iPhone? I missed several calls because of assuming it will play the ringtone when calls ring

    Just tried this on my 822 and the music did stop while an incoming call was coming through. Tried it through both apps: Nokia Music and native app.

    Music stops, but if you're receiving a text message, it actually will mute the call for you and play the entire notification sound over your call. A great feature! I guess MS didn't think people were going to use their WP8 devices as phones.

    My music will only stop if it's on speaker and the phone is set to ring + vibrate. But the music will go on if it's on headphones or it's set to vibrate only.

    I have the Lumia 920. When I have headphones in, music playback does not stop for incoming calls or text messages. It does vibrate, but no sound. This is a bummer. If I'm walking down the street or have my phone on my desk at work, it's hard to feel the vibrate. Like jaqueh said, I guess they didn't think people would want to use these things as phones!!

    Or maybe they considered that you wouldn't want to be blasted in the eardrums if you're listening to music with the volume up by a sudden alert or ring.
    Arguing with an ***** is like playing chess with a pigeon.
    You could be the greatest player in the world, but the pigeon will still knock over all the pieces, s--t on the board and strut around triumphantly-Tomtom6 on NcSportbikes.com

    Just updated to 8.1... still the same.
    I'm guessing this doesn't bother anyone else that much?!?! Seems a ludicrous "feature" to me...
