    I now have a Focus S.

    Hmm. It really doesn't work easily when you have two LiveIDs because you switched countries and they wouldn't transfer.

    I hear you can add two LiveIDs to the iPhone however.

    Oh you can add two LiveIDs as email accounts, but I want to add a second as the office & skydrive publishing point. That it can't do.

    Wouldn't that allow you to effective use the device to bridge two Spydrive accounts and thus gain almost almost free storage?

    Perhaps, dunno. But my Messenger contacts are in one account, along with my skydrive documents, and I have to use the other, US bound account for the phone to access marketplace. I could transfer messenger contacts, but meh, such a pain

    Isn't it the case that the first LiveID you add becomes the 'prime' account used for Skydrive, etc, while other LiveIDs you add become just equivalent to Outlook accounts (imports contacts and calendar, act as email client)?

    In which case reset your phone and add the accounts in the right order.

    Since most of what you have on the phone is 'in the cloud' and the rest if synchronised with your PC then you're not going to lose anything (I have done one wipe and reset on my phone since I got it a year ago and it only took about 10 minutes to re-add several live/outlook/google accounts).

    @Maddus Mattus:Maybe we need to combine these two apps so that you can view channel 9 then shoot any posters that you disagree with.  (Or is that a little extreme)

    Marginally related, but can you use one Live ID as the "primary" one (for the calendar, skydrive, whatever) and another for just Live Messenger?

    The primary account needs to be US based - for app purchasing. You can add more, but it's email only at that point.

    Does the Focus S come with wifi.   I cannot tell by reading the specs.   The old Focus looks like it had wifi but the new S looks like it does NOT.    Also, is there NFC on the device?   

    Thanks,

    Maybe I'm showing my ignorance here, but don't all smartphones come with wifi?
