Slightly off topic but just realized today that my broadband usage has gone through the roof (5~6gb/day) it looks like the culprit was skydrive folder constantly syncing or doing something, deleted skydrive off the PC and problem seems to have disappeared

@ Mauricio - I had issues on windowsphone website today where it could not locate my phone despite my phone with a similar message

NzBeagle: The Podcasts setup is pretty crap, access podcasts on phone, this is empty, go to store to find some podcasts, nothing in there. Check online *Subscribing to podcasts on your phone is not available in all locations or languages..
The native podcast feature is only available in the US for some reason. The weird region restrictions on windows phone are a bit of a nuisance.

I had this problem as well. There was a folder of items that was constantly trying to sync but couldn't for some reason. The problem was that there was no way to tell which files or folders it was... the good bit was that I hadn't yet synced much anyway so I just started over.

I haven't tested to confirm this, but I believe it was caused by a bunch of TIFF image files in an images folder. I don't think Skydrive liked them as images.

Cheers for the heads up, the app looks pretty nice too, quite like it.

I've had mine a little over a month now, and a bit disappointed, some of the coating has already started to come off on one of the corners, note, no drops, just wear and tear.

New Windows Phone Desktop App doesn't have this option and Zune doesn't see WP8....


I had windows phone 7.5 last year and gave it up and went back to android because of the frustrations I was having with Zune and Podcast's which I have found has now been made worse with the lack of Zune.
I would of thought Nokia or my favourite podcast app Beyondpod might of had a windows phone app by now that would be worthwhile as none of the ones in the market have reached the ease of Beyondpod on my GSIII.

Until then I will be using it to manage the podcasts for the daily commute.

The official Portico WP8 update finally arrived on my Lumia 920 last night. Check for updates on your phone and it should arrive.
