This question emerged countless times, and the only answer we ever got is the one above.
What do you mean when you say "by design"? What purpose does it serve? Some people think it's because of the wireless sync, but not all folks have wifi at home, so there must be something else. So could you please elaborate on that? WHY?
I heard from customers by the way that they find it really strange, even annoying, mostly because they do not know WHY. Not knowing why your phone does certain things makes you uneasy and you will be more likely to turn away from the brand, which would be really bad, considering the incredible potential WP7 has. Could an official representative respond to these concerns?
