    Well, When I set a location based reminder in PC in cortana, does it remind me when I take my phone there? I use both the OS with my same hotmail id.

    Or is it like PC based reminders, will be noted only when you take your pc to that location?

    It should alert you via any Cortana and location services-enabled device once you arrive at the location. So if you arrive with phone AND laptop, both will alert you, assuming the laptop has a wifi or broadband connection up and running. That's how it worked for me when I took both latop and phone to work today.

    The calendar works though like you said, but not the reminders

    Is your phone on 8.1 or the preview build of 10? I should have mentioned that...the cortana reminder syncing only works with phones running the preview build of 10. I have 10166 on an older device and it works great. My brand new 640 with 8.1? No syncing...kind of a bummer.

    W10 + WP8 = no
    W10 + WP10 = yes!

    Although I snoozed a lunch time reminder today on my phone, and it still popped up on my SP2. But it's nice to type in reminders on PC and have them pop up on phone.

    Alright I have 8.1. Thanks :) btw, howz the latest preview of windows 10? Installable on primary device? Does it still erase out all the existing apps on upgrade?

    Well it is.

    That integration would seriously be a WIN WIN situation ;) for MS
