Hello guys,

I have just bought a Nokia Lumia 610 for Christmas. I won't use it till dec 24. I kwow it is not a high end device but my budget was low. Lumia 610 is good enough for me!

I have a couple of questions for the windows phone users here :)

If I connect to zune, will it automatically try to copy all my music to the device? Or can select the tracks I want.

With zune, how does updating the phone work?

What are your favorite free apps?

Can I play music from my skydrive account?

Basically thats it right now :) Thanks everyone!

You can set Zune up to manually sync if you don't want to sync everything, just set it up before connecting your phone to the PC

For updating, connect to PC, open Zune, hit "Check for updates" done

From what I remember you can stream from Skydrive, I`ll have a check later but I seem to remember doing that before

Nokia has some exclusive set of apps in the market place. Check them once, most of those are free and very useful.

Thank you guys! How does the people hub work? Is it reliable? Do I need the facebook app or is it unnecessary?

People hub is great aggregator but doesn't have all the functionality of the app depending on your uses. I haven't had the FB installed for ages on mine though..
