Partner has a new 720, and is going away for a week in UK.

Is it ok to have same Live ID active on two phones at once?

How easy is it to switch to a new phone?

Thanks

its easy if you're on 8.1 as you can do a backup restore

You can have multiple phones using the same Microsoft Account, but really its a personal account, so you probably don't want to share them across people

Looks like it would be best to update the new 720 to 8.1 then, before migrating. Thanks.

Yes, upgrade first and let it create a backup. Then when setting up the new one you can just restore - apps, settings, etc.
