    I can not login after updates Lumia 925

    Why is it no longer possible to sign in with different accounts like the earlier version? This is too restrictive and I'm thinking of switching to Android the next time I get a new phone even though I like Windows. Please release an update to reinstate the possibility of multiple accounts. Also it would be nice to be able to see photos of users when searching for new contacts like when using a PC.
