Cannot join insider preview on phone because of error "phone not connected to the internet"

Question: Cannot join insider preview on phone because of error "phone not connected to the internet"

Hello, i have a lumia 640 xl and i recently wanted to try on the insider preview builds. So as of the anniversary update the insider programme update is now in the settings. So theres a button "Get started" to join the insider preview so i tap that and wait for 1 minute and every single time it shows the error that my phone isn't connected to the internet although it is as my phone is connected to my home wifi. I restarted it. Soft restarted it and deleted the insider apps and whatever thing that might disrupt my connection to it.

I'm on Lumia 520 and "Cyan" update and it takes a lot of time to open up an app and show those dots like everytime. is it only for me or is this a common problem?

Answer:My phone gets a lot of "Loading..." and "Resuming...", is there a way to make phone speed up?

My 1020 does that as well it's so annoying, maybe the newer phones don't suffer much.

Hi all,i am new to the forums and i'd like some help with an error i get when trying to install the latest 17078 insider preview build by upgrading from the iso file.I have the latest stable version of windows 10 and what i want to do is perform an upgrade by installing the latest insider preview build over the previous build.So,i have followed Kari's tutorial and have created the latest insider preview iso -which is 17078- and tried to do an upgrade over the stable version,by installing from the iso file.

Well let me see I have not had dial up for years. You might be able to change the dial number. I am not sure if that is the root cause of your problem though. But just try a different dial number.

Answer:W10 for phone comes for PFD or only in Insider preview?

Only through the Insider Preview you can get the TP builds and not through PFD.
And for the official build you do not need any of the above apps.

Hi,

I've been successfully using this adapter until recently. The only thing has changed is that I got a new router. The router is working perfectly for both wired and wireless connections (thanks to some help from Tech Support Guy!).

However, my VOIP phone service no longer appears to be working. When I log onto its configuration page, the username and password etc. are all correct, but the registration state remains "offline".

Could anyone help, please?

Hi, I installed the insider app a while ago on my 930 trying to get gdr2 but uninstalled it shortly after I couldn't get it to work. Today my phone downloaded the tech preview and wants to install it which I don't want! How can I cancel this update because it says it will automatically install in a couple of days?! Cheers

Answer:Phone wants to install tech preview without insider app!

Welcome to Windows Central Matthew,
The only way to prevent the install is to do a hard reset.
Or use the Windows Phone Recovery Tool.

My sister just got a brand new Dell Desktop......she uses a dial-up connection with a local ISP and had no problems with her old computer. Dell tech support has been of little help although they came out and even tried to correct situation putting a new modem in. It came pre-installed with AOL 9.0 and I am wondering if that is the culprit.....something is running in the start up menu referencing AOL......I am ever so confused! It also came pre-installed with Earthlink but do not believe that is the problem. We uninstalled AOL leaving the cab files but still the same error message when trying to connect to the internet. Modem Helper and Hyper=Terminal also show the same error message. Have tried everything to no avail and could really use some help.

Thanks in advance!

I recently acquired an older Compaq PC (4090US model) with Windows XP, and had to install an internal V.92 PCI modem in it (it was a gift for someone who uses a dialup connection). There were only 2 slots available, one with a wireless modem card and another with a network card; I uninstalled the wireless card and installed the PCI card following the instructions that came with the CD. It appears that the new card has been detected and installed properly; however, I cannot connect to the internet using dialup, as I keep getting a "phone line is busy" error from the modem. I went into Windows "Help and Support" section and used their network diagnostics tool, and think I see the source of the trouble- both my new modem and a PCTEL PlatinumV90( ? I don't know if this was from an earlier modem card installed or if it's the LAN card?) are listed under "Modems". However, under "Network Adapters", there is still a listing for the Wireless connection. It lists as follows- [00000001] NETGEAR FA312 fast ethernet adapter
[00000011] NETGEAR WG311 v2 802.11 Wireless PCI adapter.
I can't find a way to modify this connection. Any ideas?
 

Answer:"Phone line busy" error after installing modem

I think (from a little web searching) that PCTEL PlatinumV90 is an integrated dial-up modem. Is it not working, and that's why you needed the PCI card? Maybe you can disable it in the BIOS.

When you "uninstalled the wireless card" did you simply physically remove it, or did you use Device Manager to uninstall it and then physically remove it? If the former, that's probably why you're still "seeing" it. If it still shows in Device Manager, try to uninstall.

Ever since I upgraded my Asus UX32VD laptop to Win10 x64 AU, every time I check Windows Update under Settings, I see a message saying "Your insider build settings need attention.

I click on "Windows insider program settings" immediately under that, which shows me a "Get Started" button that is greyed out, and a "Link a Microsoft account" link that is also greyed out. I did a bit of Googling, and tried setting the DWORD values for DiagnosticErrorText and DiagnosticLink under registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost\UI\Visibility both to zero. However, as soon as I go back to Windows Update in Settings, the insider build error msg reappears, and when I look back in the registry, both the value have been set back to 1.

A Windows Phone app from Microsoft called Phone Insider has been discovered today. The app could possibly signal that the company is preparing to launch its rumored preview version of Windows 10 for smartphones.

I think I already know the answer to this, but will ask anyway in hope I'm wrong. I started with Windows 10 Insider Preview back in mid 2015 when I could freely download a Pro ISO after registering as an Insider. As it wasn't originally a bought copy, an updated freebie is running now and is digitally activated. I'm planning to update my main PC with a new motherboard and CPU. When I do that, I'd like to move the current motherboard and CPU to the PC I'm using for Insider Preview since they are both newer and better than those in it now. Is there any way of doing that, even with a call to Microsoft?

Answer:Possible to "move" Insider Preview to a different system?

Once a system is digitally activated, you can run an insider or a released version. You're not stuck with insider versions, forever. However, you can't install an earlier version over a later version (insider or released). You would have to do a clean install.

I recently built a new computer and installed Windows 10 Pro Creators Update (version 1703) and just noticed that I have never had icons for Phone or Cortana in my Settings. These settings are also not available in the search bar within Settings. See attached screenshots below.

Since I've heard of issues like this resulting from pirated software, I'd like to clarify that I purchased and downloaded the OS directly from Microsoft and installed it onto a brand new SSD and have had no issues with the machine once I got the overclock stable.

Thanks in advance for any and all tips!

Answer:No icons for "Phone" or "Cortana" in Windows settings

Hello,

"Unidentified Network No Internet Access".
(The network in question always has its SSID shown in the Wireless Network
Connection list.)
This issue occurs whether I am running only the Windows firewall, or alternatively
try only running the firewall that I prefer which is Comodo.
For antivirus I have Avast Free (with its "web shield"
not installed) and so far as this issue is concerned it makes no difference if I
disable Avast.
When this issue occurs, there are often other customers in the
caf connected to the caf wifi and also using the Internet.
I have to ask the caf to:
reset,
or turn off and then turn back on,
or remove the power plug,

yet other customers do not have to do this to get Internet connection!
This is the issue at whatever caf, to whose Wifi I attempt to connect.

if i try to pair the phone from "join personal area network" window i can see it in bluetooth devices list but not in "join personal area network" window.

Answer:"add new bluetooth device" vs "join personal area network"

Most likely a bug with your Windows phone, not Windows 10. Microsoft is not supporting the Lumia line that well. It does help when you ask for help, that you also post the model of the phone, what OS version it is running, along with screenshots or logs of what is wrong.

i click "add new bluetooth device" and then i can pair a lumia, ok. i can see my phone in "join personal area network" window.
if i try to pair the phone from "join personal area network" window i can see it in bluetooth devices list but not in "join personal area network" window.
so... it is a bug?! did i make anything wrong?! what is the difference between "add new bluetooth device" and "join personal area network" on w10?! what is "join personal area network" used for?!
thanks

Answer:"add new bluetooth device" vs "join personal area network"

Most likely a bug with your Windows phone, not Windows 10. Microsoft is not supporting the Lumia line that well. It does help when you ask for help, that you also post the model of the phone, what OS version it is running, along with screenshots or logs of what is wrong.

Hello all. First time poster, forgive me if this issue has arisen before, but it's kind of a difficult one to search for.
A few weeks ago, I installed Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview on my Nokia Lumia 1020. I subsequently dropped the phone, broke the screen and had to send it off to my insurer to be repaired. I was not keen on my photos etc. being on my phone during this time, so I reset the phone (through settings -> about -> reset your phone).
I got the phone back today with a shiny new screen. Reset it again, entered my account details, and restored my settings/data. But all of the Nokia apps on my home screen, including Nokia Camera, now have an exclamation mark icon in the top right hand corner. When I click this, it says that the apps are no longer available.
In the about menu, there is no mention of Lumia Black. In short, my phone seems to now be running standard Windows Phone 8.1, with no Lumia add-ons. Has anyone else had this problem, and does anyone know of a solution? I really hope this isn't going to be permanent. I suspect I'll get an unsympathetic ear from Nokia on the matter too, when it's in the Developer Preview T&Cs that you may void your warranty by installing it.

Answer:Installed 8.1 Developer Preview -> reset phone -> phone not recognised as Nokia

Open store >> downloads >> ... >> manually check for updates. That would update all the apps on your phone which have a ! mark
Download SysApp Pusher, update all Nokia System apps using it, you'll see Black in the extras+info after installing all updates

Hello,
I am working in Access 2003. I have a Vendors table and a PurchaseOrders table in a one to many relationship. The PO table holds, among other fields, the amount of each order, amount closed (paid off) so far (some orders are paid off in parts) and a requisition number that identifies the fiscal year in which the order was placed (in format 2012.00# where '00#' is the unique requisition number for fiscal year 2012, for example). What I am trying to do is get a sum per vendor of all fiscal year 2012 orders and the total of these that is closed so far, and the same for previous fiscal years' orders. I then want to use the resulting fields SpentFy12, ClosedFy12, Spent_previous, Closed_previous in a VendorProfile form which will give the user a quick snapshot of all the open encumbrances per vendor.

I am trying to accomplish the Spent and Closed sums in two separate queries:

SELECT
V.VendorName,
sum(P.POAmountActual) AS SpentFY12,
sum(ClosedAmount) AS ClosedFY12
FROM
(Vendors AS V) LEFT JOIN
(SELECT VendorName, POAmountActual, ClosedAmount FROM PurchaseOrders WHERE BHSRequisitionNum like '2012*' ) AS P
ON V.VendorName=P.VendorName
GROUP BY V.VendorName;

(the query for the previous fiscal years is identical except for 'not like '2012*''.

The problem is that this query works just great when I format it like that and run it. Then, as soon as I close it and go to create a form based on this query, I get a

The "App" on Windows Phone is just a web wrapper (a means of showing you the mobile version of the full website). As such it does not leverage any APIs (application programming interface) to hook into any hardware.

Are you sure you unlocked it correctly? If it is unlocked, it should read the new sim. I unlocked my 930 last week. My UK service provider gave me a rather long code that, when you get to about 5 numbers from the end, the phone doesn't appear to register them, but it does.

I was curious if anyone knew of any simple PHP coding/software for a "request a phone call" type page.

What I mean is that I want a little graphic that people can click on, and they can fill in their information such as their name and phone number. They can then choose from a drop down menu of "as soon as possible, 10 minutes, 30 minutes," or maybe they can specify when they would like for the call to happen. Then when they submit the form it e-mails me the information that they put in to give me a heads up that I should be making a call in XX amount of time.

Most apps will not open either. Using settings I tried the factory reset option, but the message appears that this is not possible at the moment.

You need to get the phone into the boot loader by doing a soft reset and holding the volume up button as it vibrates (or just before as it varies from model to model) it also may take a few tries.
Hold the volume up button until you see the big nokia logo ontop of the screen when it goes red / burgundy. In order to avoid possible complications use the usb cable that came with your 1020 (if possible) as that is factory cable. Once in the bootloader mode, you can charge you phone.

I noticed today an app called "English TV Channels" in my Lumia app list. I truly don't recall having installed such an app and in general I haven't been very liberal in installing apps. No-one else has access to my phone. I opened the app and it shows me ads and repeatedly asks to try "our new app: Youtube - Video and MP3 Download". The main screens contains some icons for TV channels, e.g. National Geography HD, but those don't seem to work.
When I tried to google some info on the app, I get some links to the WP Store and some other sites. But when clicking on those, I get messages like "not found" or "app removed".
Does anyone know what this could be about? Is there some way I could have gotten malware on my phone? Is there any way to find out if and why some app has been removed from the WP Store?

Hello :) Well first of all you should uninstall the app, if you haven't done that already. Secondly go to windowsphone.com and log in, then check your purchase history to see on which day you installed the app, maybe this will narrow down the list of "suspects" for you

I have had my phone about 2-3 weeks now and I haven't come across this problem in the time I've had it.

This happened about 2-3 hours ago though, and I've been trying to solve it since. I had my mobile phone (Sony Ericsson v630i) plugged into my laptop which I am on now with the USB cable that came with it as I was transferring files to and from my phone and laptop.

I left it in for a while a and eventually I was sure I noticed the transfer files window kind of flickered as if it refreshed or something, as I was looking at another window. I tried transferring a file but I noticed the window said no mobile phone is connected.

I couldn't realy make up my mind where to post this one but it is a subject directly linked to the computer and will be "THE" subject of 2007.

I am planning to buy a Dual phone later (analog phoneline and phoneline by Skype) but for now maybe wonna buy a specialised Voip,Skype phone.

Main reason Skype doesn't cost you anything extra.

- Using DECT technology for a quality connection in reach and sound
- I must be able to see the offline clients in Skype as well cause you can reach people who don't wonna be seen as "online" but actually are, like some of my friends.
- The must have a great reach or as good as possible, so I am reachable during my summer barbeques in the back garden.
- Would be nice if the Recieverstation is seperated from the Powerstation which you can put in your livingroom for instance away from your computer in any case.
(- Dual - is normal phoneline and a computerconnected in one apparatus, for me later but right now I don't need it)

I made a small reasearch on the subject and these seem to be the players on top of it:

85,- Topcom Butler 4872 (DECT - Dual)
80,- Linksys CIT300 (DECT - Dual)**
60,- Linksys CIT200 (DECT )**
45,- ASUS AiGuru S1 (VOIP)

** Recieverstation seperate from Powerstation is very handy

I will put more information about these telephones here later.

Any experience, suggestion tip or info are most welcome.
 

Answer:"THE" subject of 2007 - Any VOIP Phone experiences out there?

I don't have any skype experience, but I do have quite a bit of traditional VoIP experience. Asterisk is my best friend in this area. I've also had the displeasure of working with Avaya as well.

I'm wearing of skype simply because of the proprietary nature of their protocol. When it comes to voip, if it ain't open, I ain't interested.

If you press OK or Cancel does it allow you to choose another location?

Have you rebooted the computer? Does it work with the Phone connected and the drive mounted as USB Storage? \Device\Harddisk2\DR2 is likely the phone.

When I plugged in my Win 8 phone into my Win 7 laptop USB port the laptop used to open a dialog box offering action choices. Now it just (1) sounds the two tones and (2) lists a Windows phone in the Open Devices and Printers icon. Windows Explorer won't display it.

It performs normally on my other two Win 7 computers and my Win 8 Surface Pro2 so it's obviously a setting on my most frequently used laptop.

Any suggestions for resetting to the original default?

Answer:Win 7 "Sees" Win 8 Phone on USB Port but Subsequently Ignores It

I know how to fix this for USB sticks it seems to be working with my phone as well.

This has happened to me plenty of times with USB sticks, and what I did to fix was:

1) Go to control panel
2) Search Device Manager in the search box and click "Device Manager" from the results
3) Expand "Disk Drives" for USB or "Portable Devices" for phones.
4) Locate your device, right click it, click "Properties", go to the "Driver" tab and click "Uninstall", which is a button located at the bottom of the window.
5) Unplug your device and plug it back in. Everything should be working just fine. (It will automatically reinstall the device software).

This uninstalls the device software which gets installed when you plug in your device for the first time. It doesn't affects the device's data.


I'll do this with my phone (android) and I'll get back to you in a second.

EDIT: I just did this with my phone (Xperia M).

The phone should be located in Device Manager, under Portable Devices.

I uninstalled the driver succesfully, plugged my phone back in and it automatically reinstalled it. Working just fine!.

I suggest you try this, it worked with my phone and it did not harm (I had no problem with my pc recognizing it, nor do I have now) but I believe theres a big possibility that its a driver issue, so I suggest you try it.

So here i confronted the issue. I don't see "reset your phone" option under Setting >> about.

at the very end of the manual, there is a key combination to perform a hard reset. It'll wipe EVERYTHING & start fresh (probably WinPhone 8.1, though) else use NSU to fallback to WinPhone 8.0.

My phone has over 7GB of storage available. I can switch to video mode, but it still has the camera overlay with that message, so I cannot record video. The phone does allow me to capture a screen shot with the active camera image...but that still shows
the rule of thirds grid and all icons and the "Saving" text.

Hi!
I have a Samsung Ativ S Neo and an HTC 8XT, and love them both-- but I've been having an issue with the 8XT.
For some reason, no matter what I do, the 8XT will not connect to my Microsoft Account (it will connect to my Gmail though)--and therefore, I cannot download any apps. I had to factory reset it for another reason, and when I tried to download apps, that's when I noticed it-- that was in October. I used my friend's Samsung Galaxy Note 3 when it stopped working, couldn't stand Android, and just today got my Samsung Ativ S Neo- which logged into my Microsoft Account perfectly.
I want to clarify that the date and time are correct, I've hard reset the device numerous times, and there is no two-step password on my account, but it still says it "Can't Connect" to the Microsoft Account..
Any ideas?
Thanks a ton!

I have the 950 and a 128gb sdxc 533x card installed. I have roughly 2k in photos on it, confirmed through the phone's File Explorer.
I open up Phone companion on my Win 10 pc and cannot sync my photos or copy them to my computer. I get a message that says it cannot locate my phone. However, it is listed in my device manager, devices & printers, and even "This PC" it is listed.
If I try to do the normal copy method of opening the folder, my computer can see a few files(86) and then stops finding any more. When I attempt to copy the folder directly to computer, I get an error message. If I try to CTRL+A and copy to computer, I get 1-2 files and it "freezes" on the copy dialog.
Simply put, WTF do I have to do to take the files off my phone and put onto my computer?

Answer:Why does my 950 not allow my to sync with "Phone Companion" or allow me to copy from SD card?

im running windows 7 ultimate and using windows phone app but i suggest you check your sync settings. i dont understand why its not allowing you to copy and paste directly. the simplest way would be to go into "My Computer" and select windows phone right click open the browse through. if all else fails remove your micro sd from your device and use a card reader should be slower that the cards usual performance but its effective.

How can I delete a main tile (that comes with the phone as a main tile, like the phone tile)? Somehow I have two of them? You can't delete is when you press and hold - doesn't give delete as an option - I believe since it is a "main" tile/option preset in the phone?
Thank you!

Had yet another call purporting to come from MS "Vindows" security department. Led him (Martin?) on a bit and eventually told him that I didn't have a computer. He then got very abusive and called me a liar. He was almost threatening. Doesn't cut any ice with me but I help a number of oldies with their minor PC problems and I think one or two of them who are even older than me will feel quite intimidated by these nasty calls. I will contact my little group and assure them that the best thing to do is just put the phone down and forget them. I have the originator's UK phone number and will make a few enquiries to see if anything can be done to curb this practice.

Answer:Latest phone call from "Microsoft Security"

Forgot the phone numbers, usually, a black box masks the real number. Definitely assure your group to:
-- quickly, quietly, hang up the phone [do not blow whistles, do not curse, do not bang down the receiver]
-- do not engage in conversation or argument [do not curse, do not yell]
If one gives no opening to such callers, most if not all will simply move onto other possible targets.
The above is what my wife and I have done for some time now.

With Windows 10, my computer does even acknowledge the existence of a video or audio track. They are there on my phone and I can view them on a friend's computer if I can borrow one, but they are no longer visible on my mine.

Prior to my upgrade from Windows 8.1 it was quite easy to view on my computer (a Dell laptop) the videos on my phone. I merely plugged the phone into the computer clicked on the phone icon that popped up on my screen and I viewed or dragged and dropped video and audio tracks to my desktop. No such luck now.

Is there a setting in Windows 10 that I can adjust so that it can "see" my videos and audio tracks?

Greets all,
I'll just come out and admit that I'm a big Android guy, typically using whatever Nexus device came out that year. However, recently I've become more curious about what Microsoft has been doing with it's Windows Phone OS and would like to try one. I briefly used a Nokia 920 helping a co-worker set it up and was intrigued enough to want to see more.
My question is what is a decent WP device that won't break the bank (I'm not looking for a "flagship" device here), but won't be so underpowered and cheaped out that the experience is degraded or just painful?
I use T-Mobile in the U.S. so it would have to be a GSM phone and it would be nice if it used a nano SIM that my current Nexus 6 uses, but that isn't a deal breaker if not... I can always go get it changed out.
I doubt I am going to completely "jump ship" on Android, but I wouldn't mind testing the waters so to speak. Thanks in advance!

Answer:What is a good "Starter" device for Windows Phone?

A gently used T-MoUS branded Lumia 925 might be a good start. It's very similar to that 920 your coworker lent you and is arguably the best all-around Windows Phone of the last generation.
It would not cost much and would be 100% compatible with T-Mo including WiFi calling. It has a great camera especially in low-light-no-flash situations. The 1GB RAM means it qualifies for any App downloads...
Check out the specs here: Nokia Lumia 925 - Full phone specifications
Swappa might be a good place to start your search.
Edit: just get a nano to micro SIM adapter.

My friend has just got Talk Talk free broadband today. The router/modem is connected to the phone socket directly via the microfilter and the phone is plugged in as well.

The internet works fine but the landline phone does not ring when it's called although a call can be received and made just no incoming alert. The dial tone goes bit weird as well sometimes a engaged sound but sometimes the normal dial tone sounds.

The phone was plugged back into the socket alone and it rings fine and dial tone is normal.

Can anyone help?

So far striking out with Lenovo also.
What bootable app can I create that will allow my to view the Product Key. If I get that, I can install from the latest .iso and hopefully avoid that start glitch.

Answer:After Reset, Cannot get past "Link your phone and PC"

Make sure you do not have any external USB Mass Storage drives attached to your computer, like your Phone.
You can download Belarc Advisor or Magical Key finder to view your Windows Product key.
Your product key should be installed in the Bios and you should not need to input it. if you download the Windows 10 ISO 1709 and burn it to a USB Flash drive with Microsoft Media Creation tool or Rufus, in my signature. You can boot from that, choose your Language and choose Repair Your Computer. If that still fails. then you can do a Reinstall.

So, in the last 48 hrs. I have received 4 different phone calls, from a "Microsoft security rep". Two of the four calls were based out of Eau Claire, WI - and the other 2 were just random phone numbers that contained too many digits to be a real phone #. I called backed the WI phone # and I reached some guy named "Mike" and left a voice mail, because I wanted to let him know that someone is spoofing his phone #...

These people call me claiming that they are calling from MS and want me to go into my computer and enter some type of command by holding down the windows key & with other letter combinations (with a heavy accent from either India or Pakistan). Obviously, I am not stupid and know that these guys are full of $hit. So, I play along pretending that I am doing what they tell me to do to my computer. Then I tell them someone is at my door, leaving them on hold until they hang up out of frustration (one guy even cussed me out because I called him on his BS).

Answer:4 Phone calls in the last 2 days from "Microsoft"

Dam scammers, usually they get you to look for errors on you PC which naturally occur and correct themselves, but they want you to think they are serious and they want remote access to your PC to "fix" them for you and they also want your credit card details to charge you a lot of money for fixing something that ain't broke.

It upsets me, people like me or you know they are scammers, but sadly some poor folk fall for it and get ripped off.

before i say anything about the "virus", I cleared my IE browser history MANY times (I spam clicking it), soft reset my phone (volume down + power button). And it is still there. I'm using my own Wi-Fi (not sure if someone hacked it...)
Also did the following things:
Mark "Use SmartScreen Filter to help protect against unsafe websites"
In Cookies from websites "block all"
Close the freakin tab for god sake
This "virus" affected on any webpages that shows up ad. I opened Windows Phone Stack Exchange , it showed a pop up, titled something like "Message from webpage", message is "Please update your Lumia 520 right now to continue. " (in Chinese, Lumia displayed in English only), I pressed OK, and it started the redirect "virus", cleared my IE browser history MANY times, when I go back to the same page (windows stackexchange), it redirect again, it is a redirect loop FYI.
Later, I am surfing on NokiaPowerUser, another popup shown, same title, message display "Scandals of xxxxx! press ok to see it!"

Answer:Windows Phone IE redirect "virus"?

You were taken to a website that delivers a fake antivirus screen. These webpages are step one to eventually offering you a download to "fix" your virus problem. Sadly, if you download and install the program, you install a virus. However, they only work on desktop Windows. So, the website will display all of the virus nonsense because it would on any web browser, including a Chromebook or Mac. But, the virus cannot download and install to your phone.

"Nano" dual sim mobile phone from a Chinese handset manufacturer going by the name Ken Xin Da and the phone is among the tiniest mobile you can find in the market today. The M2, as it's called, may not be super slim, but is tinier than the palm of your hand, tinier than your wallet and in all certainty, tinier than your current phone.
Surprisingly, despite such a small footprint, it boasts of some good features. The phone comes with a company rated talktime of 240 minutes. It supports WAP 2.0 and a couple of audio and video formats, including MP3, MP4, AVI, 3GP.
The M2 comes with a dual-SIM dual standby option, which in that small form factor is a pretty impressive feat on its own. There?s a directional keypad along with a numpad and two call buttons. It comes with a charger, 2GB memory card, microUSB cord and headphones with a warranty period of three months.
The phone is available in a handful of local mobile phone shops and is currently selling at a price tag of Rs.1,200.

As we all know, Windows has a sound for the following:

-Device Connect
-Device Disconnect
-Device Failed to Connect

I got my LG VX8300 through Verizon about a year ago. I installed Bitpim, installed the USB drivers off the CD that came with the Music Essentials kit, and Bitpim interacted with my phone perfectly.

Even after I reinstalled Windows awhile ago, I remember using Bitpim a few times. But now, whenever I connect my phone, I get two Device Connect sounds very quickly and Bitpim can't detect my phone. I've tried different COM ports, uninstalling/reinstalling the LG USB drivers, I'm using the same cable and phone firmware, different USB ports, etc., and still I get the two beeps. If it were a Device Failed to Connect sound, I'd be less frustrated. I even assigned the Device Connect sound with another Windows sound, and sure enough, I got it twice. What would cause Windows to think the device is connected properly and offer the sound twice?

I've no idea what's causing it. When I disconnect or unplug my phone from the USB cable, I get the standard Device Disconnect sound only once.

Any ideas?
 

Answer:My phone "connects" with two device beeps

If you have a mains powered USB hub, try it on that.
The power to your USB ports might not be up to snuff.

When I try to upgrade my Windows Phone 8.1 to Windows Phone 10 preview. The process always stops in between and a sad emoticon pops up on screen.
I had to get the software Windows Phone 8.1 always at the Nokia Care center. Is there a way to save a recovery somewhere on the computer of Windows Phone 8.1 or do I need to get it online every time this happens?
I have a really slow internet connection and was looking forward to work offline to roll back to windows phone 8.1 if the windows phone 10 preview does not install properly on my phone.
Please help. It will be very helpful. I'm a new developer and windows is a new platform for me. I love this OS and would appreciate any kind of help.
