    I just got a new Lumia 800, and I'm trying to figure out if the live tiles aren't working or I'm missing something on setting them up correctly.

    I've downloaded apps which I know use Live Tiles (Flixster, Baconit, WeatherBug)

    Made sure the Live Tiles are enabled in the apps program

    Then in the Apps menu, I've done a long hold on the app and hit "pin to start"

    What I am getting on my home screen is a static icon, nothing else (although occassionally the Flixster one flips around)

    My Wifi is on, my data is on, I'm not in battery saving mode, and everything else (GPS, internet etc) functions fine.

    Anyone got any ideas? It's driving me mad

    They can take time to load. Depending on the app it maybe an hour or so before they all start syncing up and displaying info. Give it some breathing room and it should be fine.
