    Hello,

    I have made the jump to Windows Phone with the Lumia Icon. I love the phone and it is great.

    I have used many phones over the years. Blackberry (7), Android, IOS and some BREW phones. I bought the Icon because I was tired of my consumer products being disjointed. What I mean is, I use Windows, so why not use it on all my devices? In theory the idea sounds good, but I ran into a problem.

    I am trying to move to IE on my desktop PC. So I was thinking that my favorites would sync for my PC to my phone. Am I missing something? My device seems to be lacking that rather simple feature?

    Do you have Windows 8 on your PC? Mine sync between all of my devices. SP3, PC with 8.1, and my Icon.

    Yes I have windows 8.1 on my PC.

    Does it do it via USB? I have not hooked my phone to the computer yet?

    How did you achieve this? I know your IE favorites will sync from say your desktop to your tablet or laptop when you sign in with your Microsoft account. But your phone? How? Is this a new feature under WP8.1 or did I miss something?

    I am running WP8.1 too. Might be a 8.1 feature, I don't remember pre 8.1 to be honest. Settings>Sync My Settings >IE

    Make sure it is turned on for IE.

    Ok, I'm still on WP8 (Thanks to Verizon) and don't see that in my phone's browser settings.

    When i open the tabs page on my Icon, if i scroll to the right it has a column that says "Tabs on Surface" so i know it's syncing to my Surface. I didn't even have to set anything up. It just syncs across all devices on your Microsoft account.
