The Free Wp7 Icon Pack! where is saved on my pc?

by Jon 21. April 2011 18:02

Because they are incredibly useful, and I keep on forgetting where they are saved to here is a post remind myself where they are located.  The free WP7 icons are now bundled with the Phone SDK and you can find them at:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Phone\v7.0\Icons

or

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Phone\v7.0\Icons

 

Another Interesting place for WP7/Metro Friendly icons is the Noun Project, check it out

Using Windows Phone 7 as a modem from your laptop

by Jon 28. January 2011 21:35

As DDD9 is tomorrow I was looking for a way to connect to the internet my laptop on the train.  I assumed that using my new WP7 as a modem would be impossible, but appears not.  The folks at hdblog.it got it working in November!  Its a pretty simple process and quick enough for you to setup as you travel down, but you need to have ZUNE installed on your laptop for the drivers.

  1. Goto the Phone Dialler on your WP7
  2. Enter ##634#
  3. Press Call
  4. The screen will change, show the WP7 Loading clock  then change to ‘Diagnosis (ver.0929)’
  5. Enter *#7284#
  6. The screen will change to ‘Micro USB Test’ and show three Options
  7. Press ‘Modem, Tethered Call’
  8. You will get a confirmation telling you that you have to reboot the device
  9. Press ‘ok’
  10. The device will reboot
  11. Plug your WP7 phone into your laptop using a USB lead
  12. Your laptop will install modem drivers
  13. Make a new dialup connection, enter *99# in the Dial Box and leave user name and password blank
  14. Press Dial
  15. Your are using your WP7 device as a modem


Repeat the process and select Zune to revert back to Zune Sync, you will nee to revert back to Zune Sync to re-enable side loading of apps.

Enter ##634# into the dialer Enter *#7284# into the diagnositics window
Choose Modem, Tethered Call
Add a Dialup Connection using your Wp7
