    Hi all,

    Hope I'm not asking something that 100 people have asked before!

    My new WP8 device will arrive any day (Tuesday, to be exact). My WP 7 device is linked to a oldstyle hotmail account. I've never changed to an outlook account as It would have meant to re-setup my wp7-device and I didn't want to do that.

    Is getting my new device a good moment to finally change to outlook.com? If yes: Will my contacts, calendar entries and purchases (apps) be transferred?

    (I don't mind resetting up my WP7 device once my new WP8 proves to be error-free ...)

    Cheers

    I transferred mine to outlook ages ago and everything transfers over just fine. I would suggest migrating just before setting up your new phone.

    i think the only bad thing that would come out of migrating is that you could loose your grandfathered skydrive storage.

    @jasqid ... unfortunately I don't have that lovely huge grandfathered skydrive storage. I joined WP too late for that ;-) But I don't put much data to skydrive anyway.

    I personally prefer the outlook.com domain, I moved to outlook the day I got my WP8 device and have been quite happy with the decision

    Outlook is just a new front-end layer for Hotmail. I'd transfer ASAP.

    (Though for some stupid reason, Windows Phone 8 doesn't recognize Outlook.com as a Live.com account and sets it up as an IMAP address without calendar or contacts, unless you set it up manually. Dumb, dumb, dumb.)
