Phone settingsThis must have come to your mind while setting up your new windows phone device. As part of the setup, you are prompted to choose “Phone Settings”. While I have always recommended to chose “recommended settings” over customizing everything separately, most of us don’t know what all settings change, when you chose recommended settings. So, here is a quick list for you,

  • Mobile data (Switched On)
  • Sending WiFi connection information
  • Keyboard typing and user experience improvements
  • Sharing your advertising ID with apps
  • Windows Phone Feedback
  • Automatic phone updates
  • Automatic updates to Store apps
