    Ok, I figure I'm just dense and missing something. But... how do I get Bing Rewards credits for my Bing searches on my Windows Phone. Seriously, I realize I'm (hopefully) just missing something simple.

    I have an old Android phone. That is simple, I already did account authorization with MS for Wordament so all I have to do is go to Bing.com and search stuff and the Bing Rewards worked, and it even shows my rewards points at the bottom of the page. I still play some games on that phone so it's logical and easy to search some stuff on it too. But I'd like to be able to use my Windows Phone to do Bing searches as not only is it a MS OS phone but it's my daily phone. As an aside MS WP last for an MS service? Really?

    But I can't figure out how to get credits for my searches in Bing now that we can supposedly do them on our phoens. I went to Bing Rewards, logged in (again seriously?... I didn't have to log in again on Android). I can get to the Bing Rewards Dashboard and see 0 of 10 searches and shows desktop searches and daily extra points... but nothing raises the mobile searches on WP. I can search a ton on Bing and it not only doesn't apply to my Bing Rewards, it doesn't show anything about Rewards like it does on Android while using Bing (and I didn't even have to log in again since I'd used Wordament with my Live account). Doesn't matter if I use Desktop or Mobile browser mode.

    What am I missing? I figure either I'm missing something simple... or MS is just trying to cut off it's nose to spite it's face but that wouldn't make any sense.

    Not sure what you're trying to ask here as the blue box just opens a command window on desktop and this is asking about Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers... but specifically in relation to Bing only. I'm sorry if I posted in the wrong place (mods feel free to move it) and caused confusion.

    On the plus side after a few days I've realized they do count on WP8.1DP... they just never show on the Bing Dashboard on the phone. They show on the desktop and my Android as having mobile searches done (without searching on the Android... just going to Bing Dashboard and seeing what's been done that day). Strange... but better than no credit at all. Reporting back in case anyone else has the issue to check on pc or other phone OS to see if they are counting or not... might just be an error on displaying searches on the dash in WP8.1.
