Using Live@edu with a Windows Phone

Windows Phone rocks!HTC 7 Mozart with green start angled

Wouldn’t it be cool if you could sign into your Windows Phone using your Live@edu Windows Live ID? If you've already got a phone, or you’re lucky enough to be getting one over the Christmas period, there are some simple steps you need to take to make sure you get the best experience.

It’s simple!

Because Live@edu is supercharged with the power of Outlook Live, which is different to Hotmail, it means that we need to make a minor change in the server name in order to be able to connect successfully:

  1. On your phone, go to Start, flick left to the App list, and then tap Settings Settings.
  2. Tap Airplane mode, and tap to turn the status to On. Press Back to go to Settings.
  3. Tap Email+accounts and then tap Windows Live.
    Note If you receive an error on this step, tap Close to dismiss the error and then tap Windows Live again.
  4. On the Windows Live Settings screen, tap Server, and use the keyboard to change to read
  5. Tap Done . The phone will sync and the server should get changed to pod***** Press Back to go to Settings.
  6. Tap Airplane mode, and tap to turn the status to Off.
  7. Visit for additional guidance and support.

 That’s it – you’re done! You can read more about this on the Microsoft Support site.

Happy holidays! Party smile
