    Hi all,

    Ive been searching for info on whether it is possible to share a single purchase to 2 devices on WP8. My wife and both recently got HTC 8X's. With our android tablets I'm able to use one account to get the apps on each device. There is info on how to do it for Windows 8, but I havent found how to do this with WP8 yet. Is it possible, or are we doomed to double purchases or an appless life?

    Purchases are tied to the Microsoft account. So unless you use the same Microsoft account on both phones, purchases are not shared.

    I guess the question then becomes...

    is it possible to sign in with a microsoft account, but sign every built in service (people, skydrive others) into another?

    You are able to add another account and import contacts and you're also able to do the same in Skydrive. But overall seems like you may run into some problems like calendar, unless you unpin the original and use an alternative to sign into that other account.
