I recently saw my colleague's Win phone and was totally impressed that am planning to get one for myself - Nokia 720.
Do we have a Team-bhp app for Win phones now?

Nope. Not yet. Typing this from my wp8 phone browser based screen.

No, but I find the 720 web browser lot easier to use for TBHP than the android app in my former defy.

IE in 'desktop version' setting combined with regular TBHP skin gives an almost PC-like experience. It has worked very well for me when reading through the threads.

You can pin specific urls like usercp page or forums page as tiles to start screen, which will give you a pseudo-app like experience, since you don't have to go to IE and navigate to the url every time.

It has some limitations while replying to posts especially if reply message is not a short plain text one. Still, for most times its good enough.

My music player volume gets stuck and needs a reboot to get it working too. It happens quite often, thus putting me off! But one temporary alternative is - bring it to the volume you want to - say 17/30, go to the next song by skipping manually and come back, tada! song now plays with the volume you set (17, here) I do understand that this is annoying if you decide to raise the volume in the middle of the song though!

Can anyone guide me on how to make IE remember credentials on WP8?

In desktop mode settings for IE, checking the "Remember me" check box in most websites work for me just like in PC.

Not sure about the behavior in Mobile mode settings though.

Are you referring to any site in particular?

It works the same in mobile mode also. In fact I have never used the desktop mode for any website.

You are correct. There is another issue. While playing music you cant go rewind or fast forward by dragging the scroll bar. You have to keep on pressing the FF or RWD option.

I am using desktop version. I cant find "Remember me" check box though. Even inside advanced settings.

My broadband at home requires me to authenticate by logging into their webpage at times. And putting in credentials manually is a pain on mobile.

This is all that I see in Settings: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-in/ho...owser-settings
