    Hi there,

    New to windows phone so hoping this isn't a really stupid question. Having bought a Nokia Lumia 920 and loving it I decided to upgrade to Windows 8 on my laptop, I just discovered today that it comes with a free 6 month pass to Xbox music which is great, but from reading online this should sync across to my phone but doesn't. When I try Xbox music on my phone it just takes me to the screen with the purchase options with no apparent way of syncing it with my 6 months free on my Windows 8 laptop. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes it does come with free Xbox Music, but unfortunately that's only for streaming from the Windows 8 PC. For the Windows Phone you will still need to buy a Music Pass (but you can get a free 30 day trial for that too). Read the small letters at Xbox Music -
