To sign in after you've already set up your phone

  1. In the App list, click Settings, and then click Email + accounts.

  3. If you already have a Microsoft account, click Sign in. If you don't have a Microsoft account yet, click Create one.
  4. Follow the instructions to sign in with or create your account.

 

Personalization

 

On Windows Phone, Start is your home base: you can keep all of your important things just where you need it, perform a task with a click or two, and then press the Start button to zoom right back to the Start screen. You can fill the Start screen with links, contacts, maps and apps, or just a few basics. With Live Tiles, you get notifications and updates in real time, so you don't even have to open an app to see relevant info.

Move things around  

The phone starts off with preset tiles, but you have the option to customize it your way: when you move Tiles around, you're free to leave gaps between them, have only one Tile in a row or fill up every available space. You can also adjust Tile sizes so you can pack a lot of apps into a small space or enjoy an expanded Live Tile. All Tiles can be shrunk and many can be expanded to span the width of the Start screen.

Pinning Apps to Start     

To pin an app

In the App list, click and hold the app you want to pin, and then click Pin to start.

To pin a contact

On Start, click People and press and hold the contact you wish to pin.

Add some color

Your phone comes with 20 colors you can use for your Tiles and the accents around the phone.

Your theme color will show up not only on Start and your App list, but also in links, Messaging and other places. You can also choose between a black or white background. On phones, the dark background uses less battery, while the light background has higher contrast. Tip: Some colors look a little different against the dark background than they do against the light colored background, so if you change between them, try revisiting different theme colors.

Finding your Apps  

1. On Start, swipe over to the App list.

2. Click Search to find a specific app, or click a letter to jump to that section.

Note: To find your games, go to the App list, and then click Games.
