edit - just realized that this is the WP7 forum. I'll repost on a WP8 forum. But I'll leave it here just in case anyone can help.
Hey guys. I want to change from the hotmail.co.uk on my phone to my outlook.com address, and be able to redownload my paid-for apps for free, and transfer my contacts over.
A WPcentral article suggests changing the addresses on my Xbox first, and then hard-resetting the phone, setting up with the new address, and everything will have transferred (I know I have to redownload everything). I've changed it on my Xbox - I'm now waiting for my Lumia 920 to come through the post, I'm getting a replacement after my hard-reset bricked it.
I'm worried that this won't work and I'll set up with the new address on my phone, I won't be able to redownload my apps for free, I'll have to hard reset again, and knowing my luck I'll get the spinning gears again.
So can anyone confirm that what I am going to do will work? Or is there a better way?
