Windows Phone users?
I'm using a Nokia 710 from T-mobile, it's a nice enough phone and it plays well with Sync, but I am hoping that Microsoft works a little harder with WP8 to improve the functionality.

It's a MS system, so I expected a little deeper integration with their own phone an Applink app, for starters. And full voice dictation and reading for email and everything else (not just text messages). I'd love to have Nokia's navigation app fully integrated with Sync's voice recognition and speech for turn-by-turn navigation.

Any other ideas?

I have a Nokia Lumia 900 and an HTC Titan and they work great with Sync. Not sure about App-Link. I do believe that in WP8 there will be even more integration since Ford has worked with Microsoft on the recent 1969 Mustang they had a car shows that had controls that could be operated with a Windows Phone 7.5.

I will look for a link to it.

I have a Lumia 900 as well. Can't say I have any complaints about the Sync integration, it works perfectly for everything I need.

I went for an HTC 8X and sold my iPhone4. I love the WP8 platform, and I too wish there was more MS direct integration with MFT. I'm pretty disappointed, actually.

I really don't like that every time I ask MFT to change to Bluetooth Audio it has to tell me there's not one connected, and THEN halfway through saying it's trying previous devices, it finds it. Then, there's no track list or track searching using the voice commands. I get more productivity out of my dumb USB thumb drive. Ridiculous.

Hi, everyone -

I know the compatibility with windows phones is limited, but I wanted to let you know we're working with them to ensure future compatibility.

As new devices are tested, they'll be added to our chart here:
