Live Tile Notifications

Live Tiles are simply static displays that are permanently updated by your service. This means that to return a Live Tile to its default state, another call must be made, which means you must know what that state should be and have both the text and image readily available. The only way to completely reset a Live Tile is for the user to unpin it from the Start screen or to reinstall the application. If a Live Tile notification is sent to a device and the particular Live Tile has not been pinned to the Start screen, the service returns a status of Suppressed.
