How to set up Windows Live or Hotmail account on Windows Phone

Posted In Email, Mobile, Windows Phone - By Techtiplib on Friday, August 10th, 2012 With No Comments »

When you first set up your phone, you’re asked to sign in with your Windows Live ID. If you didn’t sign in then or if you have more than one Windows Live ID or Hotmail account, you can use the steps below to set up your primary Windows Live ID or additional Windows Live IDs. If you’re not sure which Windows Live ID you should use to sign in first.

1. On Start, flick left to the App list, tap Settings Settings icon, and then tap Email + accounts.

2. Tap Add an account >> Windows Live.
3. If you haven’t signed in with a Windows Live ID yet during setup, the Before you sign inscreen appears. On this screen, tap Next.
4. Tap the Email address box, and then type your Windows Live ID.
5. Tap the Password box, and then type your Windows Live password.
6. Tap Sign in.
Your Windows Live email, contacts, calendar, photos, and feeds will be synced to your phone.

Notes

– The first Windows Live account that you set up can’t be deleted from your phone.
– If you set up additional Windows Live IDs on your phone, photos in those additional accounts won’t be synced to your phone, and you won’t be able to use those Windows Live IDs to play Xbox LIVE games or use a Zune Music Pass.
