Looking for Windows Phone Help? Check out Microsoft Answers

Whether you are a long time Windows Phone user or a newbie, there are a lot of great places to get news, tips, how to’s and information.  If you look on my site you will see a blog list on the right that features many of the top Windows Phone related sites.  One of the new ones is Microsoft Answers.  Microsoft Answers is the latest iteration of what use to be the Microsoft Newsgroups.  It is here that you can post questions and get answers for experts.

The Microsoft Answers site is moderated by Microsoft and you will see Microsoft experts post from time to time in the various forums.  However most of the answers will come from MVPs – both former and current – on Windows Phone.  MVPs, or Most Valuable Professionals, are people noted by Microsoft themselves as being experts on a subject.  I was a MVP in Windows Phone for 5 years.  So don’t be surprised when you see postings from the likes of Jack Cook, Prof Julie and others who have vast amounts of expertise and experience with Windows Phone.

Check out the Microsoft Answers Forums if you have a question or run into a challenge with your Windows Phone.
