I want to swich from Symbian E7 to Lumia 800, but i have some questions

[ Edited ]
I don't want to be a testing cobai with my money and i want to be sure that WP is a up-grade, not a down-grade - and so - to sell it and loose money.
I have read the user guide and is preauty simple. So, i have 27 questions and i hope you have the time to answer those qestions.
Thank you.

1. Can be downloaded and watch videos on youtube?
2. How many fields per contact support agenda and what are they?
3. Calendar notes are repeated from 10 to 10 minutes, like Symbian?
4. You can change the calendar and alarm tones?
5. There is no limit to store SMS, like Belle?
6. It has aplication like a converter?
7. There are profiles?
8. In average use, 2G, low backlight, only in phone mode, some sms and some calls, how long is lasting the battery?
9. You can install Opera?
10. There is an application to read divix movies?
11. There is a recorder?
12. There is a way to put a password directly from the main screen, to protect the data inside the phone?
13. What is the combination of buttons to reboot in case of blocking software?
14. There is a combination of buttons that are hard-reset, like Symbian?
15. I want a stabile software, how stabile is WP7 now?
16. The default phones have buttons to change the song in the move - with your phone in the poket?
17. There are problems with micro-usb port? Quality, that is - you know, the E7 is the champion of this little detail - all E7 are broken.
18. It has a default pdf viewer?
19. LEDs can be used as a flashlight?
20. If you are writing a message and while you write, you take a brake, then the phone enters in standby. After you unlok the screen, it returns to sms application?
21. You can add multiple notes for each contact? On Symbian i have 5-8 in every contact.
22. Contact transfer function works with any Nokia that has this application? Ex. E90 or E61?
23. What is the default security code?
24. Can be up to date software of the phone and Maps directly from your phone - no PC connection?
25. There are LED notification of missed events?
26. There is everywere in the pfone the banal function copy-paste?
27. It can backup contacts to another Nokia phone? I want to backup contacts on my old Nokia - not in PC, or Zune.

Thank you so much and excuse me for my poor english.

Re: I want to swich from Symbian E7 to Lumia 800, but i have some questions

hi mate,

your english is just fine :smileyhappy:. To answer question 16, no you cannot change it in the pocket, you actually have to bring the phone out and wake the device screen up to do it. the 800 doesn't have any buttons where you can skip to next/previous track, like some of the older music-centric Symbian devices had. change tracks easily from the drop-down bar that comes from top of screen when you press any of the volume buttons - YES.

10. can't remember but Windows PHone 8 does play DiVX movies natively, the codec support in WP 7.5 is lesser, but you can easily convert it via Zune software.

sorry but can't remember other answers as i am only super-familiar with WP8 and not WP 7.5, but i'm sure that as with many answers on the list of questions you have, its shaping up to be a go-go with a great phone :smileyhappy:

:smileyhappy: Thank you.

I must say, i have some age now... :smileyhappy: I want something that's working properly, that's why i want the "old" WP. It will be some year now and i supose that 800 is a mature product.
And the price - of course.
