How do I safely switch all my data from Nokia 520 to 920?

Question: How do I safely switch all my data from Nokia 520 to 920?

Switching to Nokia 920 from 520 (which is already running 8.1). I need to upgrade 920 to WIN 8.1.
When do I put my ATT SIM card in, before or after I upgrade?
When I remove SIM card from 520 can I put it back in without losing any thing?
Thanks.

Preferred Solution: How do I safely switch all my data from Nokia 520 to 920?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Thanks. 1 - leave sim on 520. You'll need it for getting security check code from Microsoft during 920 update
2 - all your personal data (numbers, messages, etc) are stored in OneDrive, not in your sim. They will be downloaded via wifi in your new phone after logged in with your MS account
3 - after your 920 completed update, move your sim from older to newer phone.
PS: your 920 could get Windows 10 as all other lumias, check it out: [Guide] Installing Redstone on Unsupported devices (X2X Series)

Was working fine. Put it on charger over night and now won't switch on. After pushing on button it keeps vibrating every few seconds so it must have power.

First of all, what is background data and do you have to pay for it?
I never use my phone if it's not connect to wi-fi.
One day, I happened to be using the Data Sense app to see how much data I was using and I saw that the background data for the Internet was higher than the actual data used.
How is that possible? Please explain to me.
Thanks!

Answer:Why is the background data for my Internet App on my Nokia Lumia higher than actual data used?

Data Sense on my phone shows Cellular Data and Wi-Fi data. Not background data.
However Background data is typically data usage when you are not using the phone. E.g. a mail account checking for email. Or WhatsApp receiving a message.

Used to be that in windows, autorun would put you at risk when sticking a USB stick into your computer because it could run some code. So we would turn off autorun to fix that.
 
But now that we know that USB sticks and SD cards can have malicious code on them at the firmware level, we know they aren't safe anymore and the turning off autorun trick doesn't help with that bit.
 
So is there some clean safe way to get data from SD cards and USB sticks? Like I don't know, some kind of piece of hardware or something? What is the best practice for this if for example you are having to plug in a lot of SD and USB cards from the public?

Answer:Is there a way to safely get data from SD and USB

Firmware malware do exists, but they are rather impractical for malware writers to make. Not only the writers will have to account for the large number of firmware out there (because every firmware is different), but it will also require a great deal of skill to code something like that.So I would say that in a practical situation you won't be encountering firmware malware in the wild.Regards,Alex

I have two working PC's on the desk both running ME with plenty of capacity and running well.I decided to get into linking the two, went to a local fair and bought a switchbox and numerous leads so that I could use 2 PC's and one each mouse, keyboard and big monitor.It all works perfectly and I'm very impressed.I've now put both PC's back to standard for the time being because I want to try 'data linking'.I've bought a box called "USB Data Link / USB Turbo Link" for 12 and I think its made by "Prolific". In it I have one cable USB to USB, and a disc with the PC drivers and a manual.I've done exactly what the manual says by connecting the cable to both machines, I then go through the proceedure to load the drivers and eventually on the screen I have an icon which loads up the programme. On the upper part of the screen I have the contents of my hard disc and the bottom half is blank. In the taskbar I select "Connect" and then "Remote" and, a box appears that says "The remote connection doesn't exist. Open the remote machine anyway ?"I hasten to add that I've loaded the other PC with the same software.Can anyone please assist because eventually I would like to link and swap data between PC's and have only one set of periferals on the office desk.

Answer:2 PC's + Data Link + Data switch boxes...problem.

Hi all,

I'm having some problems with my laptop. It started a few weeks ago which is around the time I ran a backup with Norton 360. I remember it asked me to save files on my computer and I chose the C Drive. Now I have no space no my C Drive which is stopping me from downloading stuff.
Also, when I play videos online, they keep stopping and will not play through at all. Is this a result of the C Drive being too full?
I do apologise for the post but I've very little knowledge about computers so I'm out of my depth.
Is there a way I can delete the backed up files without harming my computer? I don't even know which file to select from the C Drive. Any help would be much appreciated.

Answer:How can I safely remove data from my C Drive?

hi candika. if you click the start menu button, bottom left.
and click "computer" this will show you a page with the drives on it it will show you how much space you have left on the c: drive.

its best when doing a backup to store the backup off the computer on an external harddrive because if the computer has a serious problem you dont lose the back up.
im not sure where the location of the norton backup is when saved on c: drive.

someone here will be able to tell you soon.

it may be best to create another backup on an external then delete the one on the c: drive once you know where it is etc.

Hi there,I just purchased a used Lenovo laptop and would like to clean all the data from the drive; including, the OS. The last time I wanted to do something like this was years ago with a regular disc drive when it was much simpler. The drive is an Intel 320 series SSD.Can anyone advise me how to whipe the drive completely and safely clean. I mean interms of the process and what tools to use. Using ideally free software?The Intel's Toolbox is intended to be installed on a windows OS and obviously cannot whipe the drive its on clean. I also read that filling the drive with zeros is not recomended. I'd like to keep to safe methods that don't risk the integrity of the drive.My second question is regarding security. I would like to make sure the previous owner does not have any software stored on board the computer to hack me or track me or snoop my data in any way. Is there any way I can check for this? It's a fairly new T420 Lenovo and the hardware seems pretty advanced, just seems like a lot of places to store this type of software and I just want the peace of mind that I looked everyone. I have heard of situations like mine that ended in malicious activity.Thanks

T420 can wipe the SSD using the following tool:  http://support.lenovo.com/en_EG/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS019026

I am using Nokia Lumia 730 for over two weeks now. Usually when the phone is switched off, and charger is plugged in, the phone will be charged in switch off mode. But this phone, even when we switch off the phone and try to charge it, the phone is starting again automatically. So is there no option available to charge a phone in switch off mode?

Answer:Nokia Lumia 739 charging in switch-off mode.

All Lumia's since the older WP7.x devices only charge when the device is on. If you try to charge them with power off, they boot up. That's because the Windows Phone operating system manages the battery itself. Some older devices don't do it like that, and neither do some Androids. It may seem strange, but the WP way of handling it is MUCH better for many reasons.

A few days back my laptop slid and fell down, and since then i have had this trouble. My windows is not loading up.....it takes me to a black screen.

Can anyone help me as to how i recover the windows using those CDs ?? And also if i use them, does that save my data on D drive or not ??? I dont really have any data that i want to save on my C drive.

What other options do i have to save my data ?

Thank you all in advance.

Answer:How to safely recover Windosws 7 without losing Data on the D Drive ?

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Have a look here: Samsung

According to this you can carry out a basic restore that preserves your personal data, but as ever, you really need to back up anything you don't want to lose.

If the system restore won't work, I suppose it's quite possible you may have done some physical damage when you dropped the laptop.

So I just got a new PC, because my last one had essentially exploded (well it blew a fuse or something... I'm not sure, but I got it working in a very unstable conditio again now) and now I'm trying to recover my data onto the new PC.

I'm trying to burn it DVD by DVD but it keeps crashing mid disk, I've gotten to disks of content vs eight ruined ones. That's no good obviously.

I had hoped to simply put the old hdd into the new pc as an expansion drive or something, but I'm concerned that it'll just infect my new computer with all sorts of malware as, well, it's probably riddled at this point. In fact I'm pretty sure of it.

Is there a safe way to easily recover my data without infecting my new PC?

New pc specs, BTW, are:

AMD Phenom Triple-core processor 2.20 GHz
4.0 gig ram
500 gig hdd
running Vista

Answer:Data cable for old Nokia

You need a data cable and software to do what you want, since that model is so old it is going to be hard to find, or expensive when you do.

I am told the data cable for the 6315 also works for the 6215, time for you to do some googling.

I'm having problems with the Nokia Data Suite program connecting with my 8310 over an IR link.

Now when I try to run PC-Sync, (Syncs with Outlook) the program gets this far

and then stops, after a few moments I recieve this error
Any suggestions on how I can fix this? sometimes the bar moves when Syncronizing the calendar, sometimes it doesn't, on very rare occations it completes it without any errors.

Also, when my phone is connected to my computer (again via IR), some of the programs will not open. The splash screen appears but thats as far as the program goes - however if I move my phone out of the IR Recievers range the program then continues to open.

Im just about to upgrade my phone and wanted to ensure that my contacts and calendar data had been synced to my Microsoft account. When I first had my phone I set up a yahoo account and it is this one that shows up under "Settings//Nokia account" on the lumia 720. Even though under the"backup" I have synced the data, there are no contacts or calendar data in this account (logged in on my mac to check)
I set up another account at @outlook.com and did another back up but with the same result - no data has been synced. I have trawled endlessly through various forums trying to resolve this and I can't. One forum says to ensure that i am "signed in" with the correct account. When i go the "nokia account" menu I constantly get "Network Problem" error message. My phone is connected to wifi so I know this is not the case.

Answer:nokia dku-5 data cable

I use the DKU-5 cable with our Nokia 3585i and it works good. I would suggest that you go to control panel>add/remove programs and remove the program. then reboot your computer. insert the cd and reinstall . then go to control panel> add/remove hardware and install the modem. When you get to the Nokia list click have disk and insert the disk and follow on screen instructions.
when this is done, go to control panel click on systems then select hardware and device manager. see if the modem shows in the list of modems. it should be there. you can right click on the modem select properties and then choose the diagnostics. that should tell you if the computer is communicating with your phone.
I have found that Nokia is very good at working with you to solve connection problems.
Good luck.
their web is www.nokia.usa.com
they also have a toll free number you can phone.
Hope this has been some help to you.
Oh, forgot to mention, I think you have to download the pcsuite from the Nokia site to get it to work properly.

I have a Nokia lumia 520, the screen cracked and now it does not work. I want to retrieve my adress book, calander, and text messages how do I do this

Answer:Nokia 520 screen has cracked. How do I get my data out of it & save it ?

If you had text messages backed up as well as had the phone sync with your MS account (by default, it can be set to Google, a work account, etc.) then your data should be safe. Log into Outlook.com and check the Calendar and People sections. Text messages will be restored to a new Windows Phone if you get one.
Otherwise you'll have to repair the screen.

Hello,
I have been looking to unlock my 6310i (Nokia) to all networks.
None of the codes I got from a unlock calculator worked, so I am going to do the cable way, which im 90% sure will work.
Anyways, I was on eBay and saw loads of them cheap.
Ily had 5 in my Paypal account, so I transfered a little more from my bank account so I can afford the cable.
The money will tkae 7-9 days I think - it is expected on 23rd Dec 04.

Anyways, I have my eye on this one - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=42407&item=6349315886&rd=1 and wondered if this is capable of unlocking my Nokia.
I have read on about 50 different sites that if your code does not work then a data cable will do it.

I just want to be sure before I buy.

Cheers,
Craig.

Hello!
I am trying to recover the data on the mass internal storage of a Nokia N8 that has been water-damaged. The data is of sentimental value to my partner's family member, so I am trying my best before contacting a data recovery company as we cannot currently afford the probably very expensive service.
The phone does not power on, nor does it show the regular charging indicator, however when the battery is what I've began calling critically-low condition (where the phone would not start without charging for a few minutes first), the charging light does flash near the micro-USB port. After this it stops charging and the process can be repeated if the battery is left to achieve the critically low point. I believe it does not charge once the critical threshold has been passed. This is only when charging via the USB, if the adapter is used it doesn't charge at all. I have uploaded a video of this here: https://www [dot] youtube [dot] com/watch?v=TQTIRcaoQu4. When charging via the computer, the light goes on for about 6 minutes. If charging via wall socket USB adapter, it takes about a minute. If charging via computer and regular adapter together, it takes about a minute as well, so at least both charging ports are somewhat working. I think it is possible that the power button still does something as it seemed to reset the critically-low charging process or it may have been coincidental. The computer does not recognise the phone in any way and it does not start, vibrate, or sho... Read more

Answer:Nokia 7210 supernova usb data cable problem

Hi

What Windows version you using and Service Pack?

I always found Nokia's software flaky as hell and I still have an N70, but it used to not connect at times as the USB driver failed, so best advice I could give you is uninstall the software and drivers, then run CCleaner and its Cleaner and registry tool (run the reg one until no items are lsited for removal) then reboot,

Then plug in phone then install the software again, make sure any software firewall you have allows the data connection from the Nokia software.

Any Yellow ! Marks in Device manager? if so what?

Bought AT&T version of Lumia 950 from MS store on line. Took it to AT&T local store and they did the account transfer work. On AT&T website, they indicated that a "transfer" app could be downloaded to the old and new phones. The download for the old phone(920) worked fine. However, download for the new phone(950) would not complete. So, I tried the alternate method of getting the transfer app. This involved texting "transfer" to 6565. This procedure informed me that the transfer program did not support the new phone. Any ideas on how to get this data transferred?

Answer:Having trouble transferring contacts and data from Nokia 920 to Lumia 950

Contacts are normally saved to your Microsoft account. So when you sign into the new phone using the same Microsoft account, contacts should be synced.
As for photos, SMS and apps, to settings and backup them. Then on your new phone just restore from the backup.

My Lumia 930 is attaching to a data only LTE network, no 3G or 2G. Before on 8.0 highest connection speed selection was 2G 3G and LTE now with 8.10.142.26.359 options are 2G 3G 4G, Phone connects to network for 1-3 seconds gets an IP address and then disconnects. I checked and provider saying it is losing signal to this Phone(UE). If I toggle airplane mode phone will authenticated and attach to network for 1-3 seconds, it is like the phone is turning connection off. I am connecting to a private data only lte network. This phone connected and worked before upgrade to 8.1

Answer:Why is my Nokia Lumia 930 losing data connection after 8.1 upgrade?

I had the same issues with my at&t 1520 a while back, and ended up having to get a warranty replacement... But here's what to try first; reboot the phone (hold power and volume down together for about 10 seconds until it vibrates). If you're still having issues, I'd contact your carrier and see if there's any problems or work being done on the towers in your area. You never know, it could always be on their end.
Next step, would be to activate a new SIM card with your carrier (at&t will do this free, idk about other carriers) If that doesn't improve your connectivity, you might want to try a hard reset. First back everything up so you can restore all your apps and settings etc, then go to settings/about/reset your phone.
Once you've tried rebooting, making sure it's not on your carrier's end, activated a new SIM card, and lastly a hard reset, I'd look into your warranty status, as you may need a replacement. Evidently, as I've found out, the radios/antennas in these phones CAN go bad and become defective. What causes it, I have no idea...

Hi!

I've got a problem concerning the connectivity between my laptop and my Nokia 6110 mobile phone:
My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite 1730CDT and does NOT have a built-in serial port. But I want to connect my mobile phone to the laptop, which is possible via the Nokia Data Suite 3.0 (NDS) - and only via the Nokia included DAU-serial cable! So I bought a USB-to-9pin-Serial converter from Xircom to plug the Nokia Data Suite 3.0 DAU cable into it. This converter device works wonderful and my Windows ME on my laptop recognizes the COM port properly. It even can emulate a DOS-COM port! Great hardware!!
But... during the installation routine of the Data Suite, NDS detects my mobile phone (Nokia 6110) properly, but the driver installation fails and NDS always tells me that the physical connection failed! The USB-to-serial converter works fine with my system and I've tried every COM-port with the NDS, but it won't accept the connection. Why is that so, and is there another solution for me to use NDS with my laptop?!
Thanks for any help!

System Specs:

When I installed the cable, the drivers load correctly and device manager shows that I have the Nokia Data cable installed, and also the 'Port 1 on Nokia adapter' as COM3. But when I try to add a modem in control panel->Phone and Modem, I cannot attach the 'Nokia 6200 Cable' driver to COM3, only COM 1 and 2 show up.

Any ideas? I can edit registry if needed, I'm careful about that. There might be something that's in the registry that's old that confuses the phone and modem adding process....

The Nokia PC Suite software DOES see the COM 3 and the phone can interact with the software to the point of updating ringtones and images and the like, but I cannot use my Nokia 6200 as a modem through the USB cable, as I do not have IrDA installed either.

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

My daughter unlocked her AT&T Nokia Lumia 920 before leaving for a year to study in France.
She signed up for one month with the French mobile service Orange. She paid roughly $70 for one month to get 60 minutes of international calling, unlimited cell phone calls in France, and a few gigs of data service.
Although she can make calls with her phone, she cannot get the data service to work. She got technical support from an Orange technical at one of their offices, and he was not able to get the data service to work.
She has subscribed online to another service, B and You, and she is waiting for the SIM card to arrive. Hopefully, the B and You data service will work.

ok, here's the deal

standard network;
each pc has a wallplate with 2 x rj45 sockets, one connects to the pc to allow network/internet access, all standard stuff really.
The other is required for voice, whereby the pc user just plugs their phone into it and it works, enough said.
Now the comms rack has just a 24-port data switch at present and the telephony people have just installed a live phone line and thats it.
So, what is needed to allow the 2nd rj45 port to be used for telephony (apart from phone handsets ?)
A voice panel of some sort? some kind of convertor?

Any and all advice appreciated.

Thanks
 

Answer:Adding telephony to a data switch

rj 45 is not used for telephony except through voip. You will need to establish a voip service. skype, vonage, etc....

if you want standward telephony, you will need to use an rj-11 port with a telephone and a program that allows usage of the rj-11 port.

a voip setup is easier.

Answer:Save the Login data requested during the switch-account

Hello Balubeto,

Since the log in credentials change when you switch, you will not be able to.

An alternative would be to have two separate accounts in Windows 8 with one a local and the other a Microsoft account. This way you could just use "switch user" to sign in to the other instead of switching the account itself.

Hope this helps,

Hi,

New poster!

I've just taken over a small Windows network, with:

W2003 server acting as file & print server,

Netgear managed Switch,

DrayTek vigor 2600v router/firewall
Before I joined, we took delivery of 3 new Xerox laser printers (connected via ethernet) which can be managed managed via http...

Data sent to each one printed immediately until shortly after the new DrayTek vigor 2600v router/firewall was installed.

Then all print jobs slowed right down... Data went from immediate printing to 1 1/2 minutes for any print job, any size, from any machine, including the server.

I'd say it is a network issue, because once I press SEND, there is a long delay before the activity light comes on on the printer.

All printers were initially on dynamic DHCP setting, but I changed them all to static, and 2 out of 3 printers are working perfectly...

The third one still exhibits exactly the same delay.

Someone mentioned it could be the managed switch: Is there any way I can test this?

Do they have a cache which holds on to old network settings?

I'd really appreciate any pointers you can give!

NB all other network activities are fine!
Cheers!
