It's all right, but I have a few songs under some letters... like 3-4 flicks to get through all the "S" songs, for instance.
So when I'm looking to play a particular song, I have to tap on the Music & Videos hub, tap Music, flick twice to Songs, tap the # box, tap the letter I'm looking for, then swipe down to the song & tap it.
Just curious if there was an easier way.
I don't know any other ways. Since Windows Phones to date have pathetic storage I've not really ended up with thousands of songs on my phones.
Is the storage really an issue with Zune Pass?
Yes and no. Obviously you want to cache stuff, since there's no cast-iron guarantee you'll have 3G everywhere. For example, if I commute in a city with a subway system - well, you can pretty much rule out any ad hoc Pass browsing. Similarly, it's not impossible just to cue up say a couple of gigs of music you're going to listen to that way, but having a decent selection on hand means you have options.
For example, I don't always watch TED video podcasts let alone anything else - but when I want to, I can realistically only have one or two episides on an 8Gb device.
I *really* need a 64Gb device. Since it doesn't look as though we'll get one in WP7 anytime soon, I'm seriously considering jumping ship to iOS - or even take a temporary detour with Meego.
I added a microSD card, so it's more of an issue for me than most users, I guess. I've got a lot of songs on there and I haven't subscribed to the Zune Pass, because I'd rather have Spotify now that Zune Pass doesn't have free downloads and I can use Spotify on my iPad too.
I really wish they had made a device with bigger storage... and I really wish Verizon had a decent Windows Phone. I will not pay for a device that is about the same as my current one, so I'll probably end up jumping ship too, to Android.
