I have an application that I would like to install on my Nokia Lumia 800 (Windows Mobile 7.5 OS).  I have tried to save the file to my phone via the link on the website, but it tells me 'Can't download file.  Windows Phone doesn't support this file type.'

Ah OK.  They did say they only Supported WinMo 5 & 6 - but that normally means they only will help people with those Operating Systems, everyone else is out on their own!  Now I see why!  Thanks
Windows Phone 7 is in no way like WM 6.X. Its a whole new and better OS. You should try it :)

Going from a Blackberry I miss a few things that I could do on it - Sound/ringtone profiles, customising alerts.  Also not so fussed on the lack of apps.  Have an android tablet, so miss the huge range.

As they move to MB8 and Windows 8 however, I think there will be a lot more on the market.
It will get better..
