    Hi friends:

    I purchased my ATT/Samsung Focus 6 days ago. In general terms, I really like it (had a MotoQ/WM6.5)) and it seems to have great potential, once all involved start upgrading. But:

    1 - Any word yet on when the Focus/Micro SD memory upgrade issue will be solved? 8g is just not enough.
    2 - Is it me, or is the battery life just not what the specs say?
    3 - The music player has rew/fwd/pause, but no "stop". How do I stop the song?
    4 - I see no folders or options in text messaging mode.
    5 - How do I access GPS?
    6 - I see no option to uninstall (apps, etc.) from my phone.
    7 - Every time I try to add a photo to ME, I get "can't update picture" ... "try again" ... "try later"
    8 - Where can I get some good info on how to import/export Office docs between laptop and phone?
    9 - I can't seem to get all my music into Zune and onto Focus. (some music always is left out) And the last time I synced, Zune automatically deleted music from the program and Focus.

    I don't know if this is too many questions, too soon, too dumb, :oops: but there aren't many forums, so I trust you can help.

    Thanks a lot.

    I will try and answer the questions I know...

    I answered within the quotes, hope I'm accurate and hope I've helped. I'm new to the focus too!

    1- no word yet
    2- I get 10 hours with heavy use, enough for my needs
    3- I beleive pausing the somg is considering "stop"
    4- have no idea :confused:
    5- settings, location on/off
    6- from the app, long press and then click "uninstall"
    7- no idea
    8- check out the windows phone 7 web page from microsoft, they have tips how to do that
    9- I noticed the same, it always fails to sync 100% of my music if you are doing the wireless sync. if you use the usb, they all sync fine.
