I hope Ive posted this in the right area.
Fior the last 2 years Ive had an iPhone 4, my first and only smart phone (upon till its release I thought the specs of smartphones wasnt that great). Anyways while I have enjoyed my iPhone I want to move to Windows Phone 8. I'm loving the metro interface and got my other half a Lumia 710 and her brother the 800 and every time I use them I just want one, the only reason I havent gone for 7.5 is because WP8 will be out soon.
Im looking to get the HTC 8S but I just have some questions about functionality which I haven't found the answers too.
Can I set custom ringtones and text tones within WP8?
On the iPhone to access the music player while music player I double tap the home button twice and it pops up. Is this available in WP8? If so what can I do? For example I can control the volume, pause, and skip on the iphone when its locked.
Apps: Now Ive browsed the app store to see which apps I use are on the Windows Marketplace, so far the apps I cant find are:
Vodafone (Balance Usage Checker)
SatNav (Like Waze)
HSBC Banking App
Love Film (When I search online it says they did release an app for WP but I cant find it, is this true)
Odeon & Showcase Cinema Times
iPlayer, 4oD, 5 & ITV
Can any one tell me if these apps above and coming to WP8 or of any good alternatives.
Is there a drag down notification are like in iOS and Android?
Also is Nokia Drive avaliable to all WPs or just Nokias own?
I think that covers all my questions. Ill add more if I think of any.
Thanking you guys in advance for you replies :-)
