I wish to get a new Nokia lumia 820 but am hesitant to do so currently because it seems it will be worse for me than keeping my old mini N97
I always loved Nokia because I could synch my N97 with my computer through ovi suite
with ovi suite it was easy to move files as in music and photos from computer to phone and vice versa
however I know understand that a GREAT feature of ove suite which was to see text messages on my computer screen and reply from my keyboard is NOT available through Zune
Nokia and Moicrosoft - please see what features we had with Nokia PC Suite and Ovi suite and develop Zune to at least give us the same features and capabilities
otherwise I and others may have to stay with our old phones as the old phone/computer software combination is actually a better solution for us
The 820 does not use Zune, you copy music , pictures and video by just dragging to the phone. There is no way to view textmessages on a PC.. Using the cloud for storage and sync is the way forward, you either live with it or find a phopne which does things through a cable and hope your PC/laptop never crashes or gets stolen.
BTW, if this is such an issue please also do not use email or a webbrowser on your PC at home as these are much more likely to deliver harmful content to your PC or get your personal data stolen.

I agree, have just bought my 4th Nokia because viewing, texting and saving messages via the PC through Ovi was the best way to keep track and securely save messages. Now what do I do now, how do I keep copies of my messages?
