    Im surprised to see Microsoft own product is not fully functionality on his own operating system phones. No call notifications, no msg notifications when on screen saver mode until u open skype manually you will get to know how many missed call n msgs. No file receiving and lot of missing is best even for any app. Lumia n Microsoft made worst thier own productss..
