My first windows phone was an HTC trophy on Verizon, I then upgraded to a HTC 8x (same carrier). After the switch to wp8 I have found that I consistently have issues receiving toasts and live tile updates that I did not have before the upgrade.

The apps in question are
Words With Friends
Pro Sports Scores
ESPN scorecenter

Issues include toasts and live tile updates being hours out of sync, one or the other simply not coming through, phantom alerts, and constant live tile resets.

Anyone else having these issues, if so what apps, any fixes known?
