Nokia Lumia 630 phone. Question on People / Contacts.

Question: Nokia Lumia 630 phone. Question on People / Contacts.

On my list of contacts under "People" I have a profiles for friends containing details of phone numbers and other contact details.
For one contact in the "profile / call mobile" I have an up-to-date mobile phone number under which is written in small letters "Outlook".
For the same contact I also have a second "profile / call mobile" an old, no longer valid mobile phone number under which is written in small letters "Facebook".
I have tried without success to delete the second "Facebook" entry as it is obsolete.
On her Facebook page in the "About" section under "Contact and Basic Info" there is no telephone number shown.
Can anyone tell me how I can delete the obsolete telephone number under "call mobile" and above the word Facebook"?
Many thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: Nokia Lumia 630 phone. Question on People / Contacts.

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.)

I am currently on a phone that is not a smartphone. It is an LG that lets you slide the phone to the right to open a keyboard. Anyway I was planning on getting a Nokia Lumia 1520 and was wondering if I can do a group chat with people on an iphone.

Answer:Can any nokia lumia phone do a group chat with people on an IPhone?

Yes. I have groupchat with iphone users via MMS, facebook messenger, or Skype. I'm sure theirs others, I just haven't used them.

Elsewhere, the longest way is to export your Contact from you web account Hotmail.com in a .xml file and import them to your Experia web Gmail.com account, so phone later will sync data by internet, same as Lumias

Answer:How can i save contacts from my phone to sim card (I have a Nokia Lumia 625)?

If you're planning to use Lumia -which is yes- you only need your MS account, contacts are automatically synced with the cloud
Note that you can extract contacts and save them on the SD card, put move them to PC, after wiping up, import them.http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=...7-25eddccbebf2

my phone will not recognize my 32 sd card, was told to reset and it will work

Answer:If I reset my Nokia Lumia so my sd card will work, will I lose my phone contacts?

You must check first if your Lumia device is compatible with 32GB cards - some older ones are not.
Then, if you have your phone contacts synchronized and backed up to your Microsoft account, then you should be able to restore them back after resetting your phone - since resetting your phone will erase everything from it (including contacts). To check this, login to your people.live.com account and see if your contacts are listed there.

for the past 3-4 days, none of my contacts have been showing up n the "People" section of my phone. However, I'm sure that they are stored in the phone because when I receive a call or dial out a number, the contact's picture and name show up.
I have neither added any new account nor deleted any old account when the problem had started occurring.
It fetched data from my Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Microsoft accounts along with the SIM card. right now, it shows blank, neither can I search any contacts. Adding a new contact also doesn't help as the same does display.

Answer:Contacts on Nokia Lumia 610

I'm not sure you can do that. I know you could probably import from the SIM, but I don't think you can export it.
Your contacts should be synced with your MS account (people.live.com) so if you're trying to move to another phone you can sign into your MS account on that phone.

I changed the digitizer as it broke and after doing so I had slightly damaged the power/volume camera button strip, so there was a little problem as the on/off button stopped working this was fine initially as it powered up once plugged in, so all fine then about 30 minutes later it was off and very hot at the top/back of the phone and would not power up when plugged in i decided as it was becoming hot to detach the internal battery, on closer inspection I had noticed the on off button strip thing had broke completely so I ordered a new part and replaced etc but the same problem exists
Have i shorted out the ecb or was the digitizer I replaced faulty causing the over heating as where this plugs in is where it becomes hot

Answer:My Nokia Lumia 625 will not turn on, when on charge it heats up very quick at the top of the phone, what's going on with my phone?

How can we know because we where not present during your repair. But a digitizer can not cause overheating so you must have damaged something during your repair.

Answer:Nokia contacts to I phone

I don't know anything about the iPhone, but does it offer you the option of storing your contact numbers on the phone or on the SIM card (like most ordinary phones)?I so, then I think the way I would tackle your requirement is to transfer all contact numbers on the Nokia on to the SIM card, then put the SIM into the iPhone and tranfer them all into the phone.But - as I said - that's a suggestion that assumes all these functions are available on both phones.

Answer:W10 Phone - People App missing Send Message in contacts Profile

Hello to all.
I have a similar situation to seek for help.
Two weeks ago I upgraded my lumia 535 win 8.1 phone to win 10, with build No 10586.107. At about the same time my wife updated her lumia 550 win 10 phone to build No 14393.576.
I have the option "send message" in the contact profile, so nothing changed during the upgrade. But my wife missed the option "send message" after the update, which was there just before! Now she has to open messages and choose the contact and send the message, which is annoying and consumes considerable amount of time, as she uses text messages very often.
Is there a way to get back the option "send message"?
I hope someone has the answer to fix it.
I will be grateful.
Happy new year!

From my searches online I see that other people have had similar problems but didn't find any resolutions.
Here's an example of what's happening.
This morning I updated the address of a contact. Saved the address update. Then saved the contact information. Clicked on the button to go to the main window. Clicked on the contact tile. That specific contact no longer is displayed. I have Contacts set to display all (ie. not filtered).
I re-entered that contact with the new information.
The only thing that it syncs with is outlook.com.
I looked at my contacts in outlook.com there are now 2 contacts for that same person.
Any ideas how I can fix the problem?

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 daughter downloaded cortana on her lumia 635 the phone has somehow found an old microsoft account and we are unable to change the email address to her current one. since then she has lost all her contacts and photos. I plugged phone into computer and can access the photos so they are still on the phone but not accessible on the actual phone can't access the contacts on computer though.

Answer:Why am I unable to access contacts or photos on my Nokia Lumia 635?

Find out the whole story. You can not just download Cortana. It is part of an update.
Cortana will not activate on a child's account if she is under 13. May be the reason the account was changed.
Copy the media you want to save to the PC and reset the phone, recover using her account.

Hi all
I have bought a new Lumia 630 from an iPhone 5 and as a whole liking the phone to be honest. But having one problem and that is when i transferred all my contacts from my IOS device some of my contacts i am not able to text and i do not know why and is getting quite annoying as i cannot receive texts from those individuals
thanks in advance

Answer:text message contacts not working from IOS nokia lumia 639

Did you turn off imessage on your iPhone 5? I'm betting the contacts you are having issues with are iPhones. Try turning off imessage on the iPhone. If that doesn't work you might have to make some changes to your Apple account. And if that doesn't work. Have your friends make sure they do not have your phone # setup as an iPhone. I know this because one of my friend has went thru this issue.. imessage is a pain in the **** when going to a different OS.
Here is an article back from May about apple getting sued over it. I haven't seen or heard anything since. Apple sued over disappearing iMessage texts sent to Android users - CNET

I'm handing my old phone over to my mum but I want to change the Microsoft account on the phone from my account to hers. I understand you need to completely reset the phone to do this, but I wondered if there was a way I could keep my contacts?
Obviously I can't save them to my Microsoft account because that would completely defeat the purpose as I'd have to sign back in!
Any help would be appreciated!
Cheers!

Answer:Want to reset my Nokia Lumia 520 to change the Microsoft account, but want to keep my contacts?

I have this phone on Tmobile. And also don't have mms working. The only thing I know of you could try is to install Access Point app (1st you need to install Lumia System Updater or SysApp Pusher - inside you'll find Access Point app) Then restart your phone (optional). If it works it will if it doesn't you are out of luck

What carrier are you using it on? If you're on Verizon, it should work perfectly. If it ISN'T on Verizon (you have it on AT&T or T-Mobile), I believe there is no way to set it up.

Hi,
i am currently a iPhone 5 uses and my contract expires on the 23rd september so other than jumping on the iPhone 6 bandwagon i was looking at what's out and the nokia lumia 930 interests me a lot - looks polished - looks fast - does what i need it to do.
I know changing to any phone will be strange due to have the iphone since iphone 4 so i expect changes.
my question is from a users perspective...what's it really like? battery performance? just overall what's your opinion? to get or not to get.
Thanks any input will be helpful!

I have two Lumia phones. A 625 (purchased 6 months ago) and a 635 bought a week ago.
I connected the 635 to the same live.com account than the first one.
Under "settings->"email+accounts"->"Microsoft account" the only content to sync is email. The contacts option does not appear.
I want to sync my contacts on both devices and want to be able to modify one contact or delete etc and that this change immediately reflects on the other device but this seems impossible
Could somebody clarify this?
I appreciate it in advance

Answer:Why can't I sync contacts on a second Lumia phone?

Indeed you only see E-mail but this is because contacts and calendar etc are automatically synced.
So it's actual the other way around you can not "not sync" contact,
Only for E-mail you can decide if you want to sync or not but contacts etc always will be synced.
So if you check contacts on your new phone you will see that they are already on your phone.

I know what my mate has done but can't find a fix. When turning a Lumia on for the first time he has GUESSED the Microsoft account thereby locking it to a fictitious email account. Then spent a week keying in 100+ contacts. I've set up a genuine outlook.com account and added that account hoping the sync would work.
I know that only a hard reset will unlink the original Microsoft account but I need to think about a last ditch effort to save the contacts.
Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:Is there another way to take contacts off a lumia phone following a set up error?

When reading your concern, the only thing that comes to mind is GUESSING yourself into the account through the website, go to the contacts section and export all the contacts into an excel file.

Answer:How do I know I got an original Nokia Lumia 730 phone?

Well, just compare it to video and images of the 730/735. I imagine people would spend their resources creating fakes of much more expensive phones than the 730.
I'd be more worried about receiving an empty box than that.

Out of the three phones in my consideration, I would like to get two of them. All three phones are similarly priced on B&H, so I care more about the daily performance. Both the 1520 and 930 have better specs, but specs don't always translate well in everyday use.
The things I value are screen quality, hardware performance, and camera quality. Does the 20MP Pureview camera make that much of a difference compared to the 10MP variant? Since the 930 does not have removable battery or SD card expansion slot, would that hinder its usability? Does the 930 ever freeze? My Nokia Lumia 635 froze about two times since I got the phone, and I needed to remove the battery to reboot the phone. I don't want that to happen to a phone without a removable battery.
So in summary, which phone is the best value for the price? If you have other suggestions, feel free to share them.

Answer:Which phone is better: Nokia Lumia 1520, 930 or 830?

I love my 1520. It is a great phone and I traded up from a 925 with no regrets.
I assume you are in the US since you are shopping B&H. Note that the International 930 they sell will not get LTE in North America. I don't see anything that recommends 930 above the 1520 except pocketability. Forget the overly dense, overly saturated AMOLED screen. Any HD benefit is lost by not having Glance, IMHO. 1520 beats 930 with battery life, SD slot and larger screen. That last one is subjective, but I really did not have a hard time getting used to the 6" screen. I love it.
The 830 looks to be a good all-around value. I keep debating with myself if I should get this for a backup phone. The only thing slowing it down, so far as I can see, is the Snapdragon 400 cuts out the potential for "Hey Cortana."
If the those 3 were lying on a table (1520, 930, 830) and I was told I could take any two for free - I would absolutely pick the 1520 and the 830.

I am worried that because it's an internal battery that cannot be removed, this may pose a problem because the phone has been on display and never turned off for however long it's been in the store. I know techies can remove and replace it but I am not techie and it's not how it was meant to be.
As someone who has had to change out batteries on phones before because they didn't last, and charge them separately when my port broke and so on, I rely on having battery control lol. Is it too much risk buying a demo phone? My dad really wants it but I don't want to buy it and have issues early down the road.
Any info appreciated. Thanks!

Why don't you try adding it witihin the Phone app.
Go to Dial Pad -> type desired number there, on the left there's tiny floppy/disk icon, press it -> then again, in the lower right corner there's a plus(+) sign, choose it and the rest you'll know yourself. If it works of course.
You'll still be in the People app but it doesn't cost you too much to give it a shot.

In order to delete contacts simply do the following:

2.) Find the contact that you'd like to delete.
3.) Hold down your finger on the contact for two seconds, then release.
4.) The option to either "pin to start", "edit", or "delete" will pull up.
5.) Hit delete
6.) Done!
