Losing a phone is a bummer...

Last Thursday, my Microsoft Lumia 535 got stolen. 

As far as I can remember this is the first mobile I have ever lost in 18 years of using cellphones 

I tried to use find my phone & to ring it but alas the person who took it turned it off. Calling both numbers on the dual sim device yielded nothing. 
All my devices have passcode lock, and I've sent the Lock Command again with a message. So at least my data is safe for the time being, since it's a work phone I have minimal personal info. I've initiated the erase command and hopefully when the person who has it connects it to free wifi it will be locked and my data will be wiped from the device. 

It irks me that I no longer have a Windows Phone. I must now move to my XiaoMi RedMi 1S as my work phone, which is an ok phone but I really took a liking to Windows Mobile 10 and it's UI, and I am still uncertain if the exchange email address bug in Android has already been fixed. I loathe the thought of having to go thru all my work contacts and fix email addresses one by one. 

Losing a phone is a bummer.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
