Windows Phone 7 Leaves Out MAC Address Info and Calendar Search

The HTC 7 Mozart and Samsung Omnia 7 were released in Europe over the weekend. After people have had a chance to play with the Windows Phone 7 OS, it’s become apparent that Microsoft forgot to include a few things. Like an area with MAC address information.

Users may need this information as some wireless networks use MAC address filtering to as an extra security layer to control connections. Not being able to easily locate can be quite an annoyance. Every other smartphone OS on the market provides a way to find the MAC address of their device.

Microsoft also forgot to include the ability to search the calendar. Another feature one would expect on such a device.

I’m sure as the complaints continue to flow into the forums at Microsoft, they will eventually add this feature. In the meantime, you have to get creative. Good luck if you’re a novice at computers or don’t have access to the wireless router.
