           this.Loaded += new RoutedEventHandler(timer_Tick);

Hamishwillee - Why this timer

Windows Phone has a number of different timers. It would be useful to explain why you're using this one, and its relative benefits/downsides when compared to other ones.

Hamishwillee - Thanks for the fixes

Thanks for the tidy up Matthew (and Chintan). Definitely an improvement.
