Plus, don't forget that WP7 will automatically sync all of your Facebook contacts too, as long as you have that enabled on the phone.

I want a Mango powered phone. I am an X Android and now iPhone and want my Mango now so that I could say I am an x Android & iPhone user.

In my case, though, it was on an android phone. A message came up in the default language (Hebrew) for that phone and my Hebrew is terrible. I couldn't figure out how to take a screenshot to capture the error and I didn't have a pen and paper with me (so I could look it up in Google translate).
I had to search for someone who could translate for me. What should have taken seconds to resolve if I had a screenshot instead took over twenty minutes (just to find a translator).

Custom Ringtones work (as others have pointed out) I currently have my old CTU Ringtone set on my HTC Arrive so can verify first hand.
The lack of screen capture does kinda suck for the people that care about them. I actually liked my old WM6.5 where I had an app that let me control the phone as a whole from my PC.

Good to see you found a workaround for your Outlook contacts. A majority of Outlook users have exchange behind it so the syncing part happens automatically.
I'm actually looking forward to custom ringtones in Mango, as I totally agree that stock ringtones suck in your tester and my Dell Venue Pro.

I use this set up to sync between my PC(s), Mac, iPad(s), iphone(when I had it), and now WinPhone7 (Focus). I only hate that windows live needs the outlook connector installed to sync with Outlook... Windows live mail syncs perfectly and so does Outlook (with the connector).
Yeah, It is a crazy way of setting it up, but the cool thing about windows live is that YOU DO NOT HAVE TO MAKE A NEW EMAIL ADDRESS TO USE THE EXCHANGE FEATURES OR CALENDAR OR CONTACT SYNCING!!! Go make a new user account in windows live and use your current email address as the sign in name. Be it gmail, yahoo, hotmail, or your own domain, it will allow you to connect. The only thing with that is that it will not sync your mail. So what... You already have somthing in place for that right?! Besides that, having a windows live account with the free 25GB of storage is awsome now and will be even better with mango. Finally does docs that I sync to my account will be accessable from my phone and my future windows tablet.
To sum it up, find a better Exchange alternative to Windows Live... That works as it should and syncs with ALL DEVICES AND COMPUTERS. BTW, to syn with iOS using a windows live account, set it up as a Exchange account. You will be SO HAPPY.
I cant imagine some one not liking this setup. Shoot, maybe they have never used exchange. I wish I had my own person exchange server, lol.
