    Can I change update settings for individual tiles? some tiles as static and some as live? I interested in buying a new phone and am inclining towards a windows, but I 've heard that live tiles may get annoying and static tiles seems not much different than icons to me. Integration of both may solve this problem. Can someone answer me, ASAP.

    Thank you.

    Well you can disable the background updating on individual app or block the background task. A tile will only be live if you want it to be.

    Hello Deepak

    The embedded apps (xbox music, calendar, phone, etc) can't be configured. Their tiles are always "live". They will always show you the number of missed notifications, your next appointment, an animated image related to the last track you were listening too, etc. Third party apps that receive push notifications behave like that too.

    However, some live tiles are updated by background tasks every 30 minutes or so. This is how most live tiles are updates, and you can enable/disable the background tasks for these on an app-by-app basis. So, yes, for these apps that can be configured.
