    Hello I just switched from android to my new HTC 8x. So far i like the phone, it is definitely different and I have a ton of questions. Should I ask those here or in the HTC 8x only section? Some questions are htc related others are windows phones in general

    Hello and welcome to the community! You can create two separate threads if you wish, or combine them altogether in either the HTC forum, or the Windows Phone 8 forum (since you have question on each topic). Completely up to you

    Ok cool well I'll just ask the basics here.
    1) How do I transfer music to my phone, is it like android phones where the internal memory just shows up or is there a program like iTunes?
    2) What is the difference between xbox live games and regular games?
    3) How do I pay for apps/games?
    4) What is all of the Xbox stuff, like music+video, xbox games
    5) How do I kill apps running in the back ground? I heard that I need to use the back button to leave apps instead of the home button, is this true?
    6) Htc 8x question- Does the led notification light that comes on when charging, work with text messages?
    I think thats all for now, hopefully you all can help
