removing Windows phone 7.5 from Zune

Dear all,

Right now I am in the stage of remove old Windows phone 7.5 from Zune and plug in Windows phone 8 as Zune seems don't allow 2 x phone exist at the same time.

How can I remove the old Windows phone 7.5 and let Zune detect my new Windows phone 8?

Zune seems can't detect both phone at the same time.

Windows Phone 8 is NOT supported by zune. If you are running Windows 8 there is a windows phone App that will manage your phone instead of zune.

Mikal613,

you mean just plug in the Widnos phone 8, then windows 8 will start the apps installed for us to manage it?

it seems that we can uninstall Zune once the Windows phone 7.5's data is transferred to Windows phone 8, right?

But in order to syn calendar and contacts, software still needed? What should be that ? Zune can't detect my windows phone 8.

How can I remove Windows phone 7.5 from Zune ?

"If not goto the microsoft store and download the Windows Phone app for Windows 8. "

which one you are talkiong about ?

This one: http://wmpoweruser.com/windows-7-sync-client-for-windows-phone-8-handsets-now-available/
?

Then what you mean is I just let Zune manage my Windows phone 7.5 and let my Windows phone 8 manage by Windows 8 ?

as  I will dismiss my windows phone 7.5, probably sales that out. so I want to remove my Windows phone 7.5 from the Zune. So in my case, I can just simply uninstall the Zune and reset my Windowws phone 7.5, right?

windows phone 8 will autmatically sync calendar, contact, photo and music to the PC ?

Do you know if I have itune installed with ipad, it will also sync my photo and music to ipad also?

in my case of Windows phone 7.5 with Zune + itune with ipad, it is !

Mikal613,

ndows phone 8 will autmatically sync calendar, contact, photo and music to the PC ?
<<<<  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2454811 

I tried to check about the event just after I plug-in my Windows phone 8 to my Windows 8 notebook, a full screen web page like screen will detect my phone, but I cant' see why it is not happen all the time.

"Instead, the process is a two-part sync procedure that involves transferring your contacts to a Microsoft account (such as Hotmail or Outlook.com), and then syncing your contacts from the Microsoft account to your phone. Then, Windows Phone uses your cellular data or Wi-Fi connection to continue syncing your contacts to and from your Microsoft account to your phone. This means your information is always current and backed up.
"

This is what I found out that the calendar and contact is not sync as fast as we have software installed in the computer !  I think 30 minutes later ( a long time) it will in sync.

I don't like that.

The Windows 8 application can't let us manage the files/music/video well for Windows phone 8.

You can also view the files via file explorer.

"You can also view the files via file explorer"

Then this create another problem, in Windows phone 7.5 we can manage that but not the Windows phone 8, funny isn't it?

I know this but how about creating a playlist ? how to do it ? or Windows phone 8 can't play random music as it need a playlist.

WP8 is NOT supported by zune and yes Zune can handle multiple phones but not WP8.

"More of a problem is contacts, calendars etc... Just killed all of mine... But that's a different problem."

Same here, but I just sync all my contacts using Gmail and when I switch windows phones I just sync the gmail contacts. Works quite well actually.

one thing, I found that the PAID apps from the Windows phone 7.5 can't transfer to Windos phone 8, how to fix it?

Havent tried this before, but when you go to download and install again, it should recognise you have already paid. Just make sure you are using the same ID as first time.

But this is starting to be a little bit of scope creep given your original question...

mark_wills,

Got information from the apps developers that, just buy the same thing again, the apps will shows that you have paid that and just download the content.

MIcrosoft is not going to charge the same thing twice if we buy using the same Microsoft account.
