    Microsoft Account issue on Windows 8 Phone Nokia 920


    I've recently changed my email provider so I changed my email and alias in my windows account.

    My Xbox etc stopped working until I signed in with the new email address and now works perfectly.

    My Nokia 920 has obviously also stopped connecting to the store/music and Xbox until I change to the new email address of the new windows account.

    The problem is I just see how to change it, it doesn't seem to have an option to change sign in email address.

    Am I being daft?

    How to change the Microsoft account on your Windows Phone

    Unfortunately, you have to RESET your phone to do it, so you might have to re-purchase any apps that are not added to the new MS account.

Iphone 5 - Stick to Samsung or new Nokia Windows 8 phone
Hi there for once Apple seems to be following rather than leading the pack. From "Street Whisper" the new Iphone 5 to be unveiled this week doesn't really offer anything that isn't out there already - and forcing people to do everything via iTunes doesn't help either. I'm still glad I got...
