    Windows Phone 8 could not handle the change of the primary alias of your Microsoft Account. If you changed your primary alias to a different one, you had to reset your phone to factory settings and start from scratch (http://winsupersite.com/outlookcom/h...e-and-xbox-360).
    Now Microsoft introduced changes how aliases are treated across devices: (A better way to manage aliases and primary email address for your Microsoft account | Office Blogs)

    Question:
    Can Windows Phone 8.1 handle changes of the primary alias without the need to revert to factory settings? Has anyone tried it?

    Thanks

    I changed my primary alias and was unable to get my 8.1 phone to sync to the account without doing a hard reset.

    Ditto... was this a one time occurrence or do you think this will happen again when we upgrade via Preview?
