I must confirm that this is a bug in our RadSlideView control. For now, as a workaround you can edit the template of the RadSlideView and make customizations of the PullToRefreshIndicatorControl with x:Name="PART_PullToRefreshIndicator"
. We will address this issue in our future releases for Windows Phone 8.
Let me know if this works for you. I have updated your Telerik points as a token of gratitude for your valuable feedback.
