    Click this link to migrate your account. Note that although this is an Xbox tool, it migrates your Live ID. Note also that you can only do this every 3 months.

    Yeah they would. But you will not be able to re-install any region-specific application from your previous region.

    Hi WP8Expert, I have migrated my account to Singapore. Can I still download apps from Singapore such as Facebook, Twitter and Skype? You stated that it migrates the Live ID.

    Maybe I am missing something, but to check and download apps from other markets is enough to change the Region in the Settings and reboot. (Note that chinese WP8 handsets are locked to that market no matter what Live Id you use. They are, so, an exception to what I just said).

    I have migrated my ID to Singapore. So can I download Singapore apps like Facebook that are not available in my previous Chinese Market?
