Yes! Tons of new features will be coming in the next Windows Phone 7 Update (Mango) which will bring new things like multi-tasking, twitter intergration, custom ringtones, turn by turn navigation and much much more!
This update was said to be coming out later this year.

Hi Jess,

This handset will not operate with acrylic nails, as it recognises the heat from the touch of your finger.

Hi, the Maps facility is available, but it is Microsoft's own Bing Maps service and not Google Maps. You can find out more about using Maps service by downloading user manual (pg 54) http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201010/20101014132702812/GT-I8700_UM_EU_Eng_Rev.1.0_101013.pdf

Hi, we have checked the user manual and this feature does not appear to be available, as an alternative you could write down the name and number and enter this manually into the message.

You'll need to make the MP3 less than 30 seconds long and then in Zune set the genre as ringtone. Just search google for free music editing programs and then just crop the MP3 you want down to 30 seconds. Or just download an app from the marketplace where you can download some free ringtones.

If you have WP7.5 (Mango) then you can have custom ringtones as long as you set the genre on zune to ringtone and the track is less than 30 seconds. I was having problems updating to Mango as T-Mobile weren't sending it out yet. So I unbranded my Omnia 7 and you'll get all updates when Microsoft send them out. Unbranding may damage your phone and can void the warranty. (Just to cover my back) You may want music editing software to crop the track down to 30 seconds. Just search google/bing for a free one. If you don't know about unbranding search google/bing too. (It also gets rid of the T-mobile screen when you turn on the phone).

I think you can only pair with a BT handsfree headset, and your PC running Zune for syncing.

Hi Maxruas.

Applications for this device are produced by the individual companies and distributed on the Microsoft Marketplace.

We would kindly ask that you direct this query towards the support teams at Google and Skype to see if and when these applications will be released for your device.
