    My wife is on her way to get her Lumia 920 today and I received mine last week. She will use her own Microsoft Account but I want to be able to share the Windows Store/Marketplace account so we do not have to purchase separate apps. How do we do this?

    Thanks!

    You can't.

    Accounts are for a single person, purchases are tied to an account.

    So in a sense, we will also need two XBOX Music passes too? Her phone can't be counted as one of my allowed devices?

    As much as I am glad to have left Android, I will miss the sharing of app store purchases.

    I am afraid that is the truth...

    Well on the bright side, I don't have to retire one of our three Zune's to make room for her Phone...she'll have her own 4 device limits now... ;)

    Can you confirm if you got this to work. One of the few perks of iOS was not re-buying apps for each family member.

    My wife has the 8x, I have the 920 and a surface.

    all three use my account for store/musicals/Xbox live

    I set my account not to sync email on her phone and added her email account.
    Works great. Music pass works on all 3 devices and she has her personal email etc..
