Preferred Solution: HTC 8x - Last Windows Phone 10 broke my cell phone, how can I fix it?

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.)

Answer: HTC 8x - Last Windows Phone 10 broke my cell phone, how can I fix it?

Maybe because you installed it unofficially on an unsupported device?

I do all my work calls through my cell phone. Is it possible to highlight a phone number and then right click it and have it dialed through my cell phone? My cell phone and laptop are recognized via bluetooth, seems like this would've been a feature well before now.
It would be nice if it would be functional from Outlook emails or even webpages for businesses or candidates.
Thanks!

Installed Windows Insider in my phone and got the Windows Mobile 10 Preview. Now I need to reset my phone back to Windows Phone 8.1. When using Windows Phone recovery Tool it's ending up with an error after completing the download of the software. So when I tried doing factory reset, it's again installing Windows Mobile 10. Please help me to restore my phone to 8.1 without using the Phone Recovery tool.

Answer:Reset my phone back to Windows Phone 8.1 from 10 without using Windows Phone Recovery Tool

What error do you get. Is it after the installation of the WPRT or if you connect your phone and download the firmware of your phone?
The WPRT is specially made for the roll back but if you do not want to use it you need to use for example the Nokia Care suite but for a novice this is much more complicated then the WPRT.
So I would suggest to register and reply on this post which error you get.
Firewalls and virus scanners may prevent the installation of the WPRT and a network may prevent the downloading of the firmware and an "bad" connection between your PC and your phone will also give errors. (change USB cable or USB ports or PC)
Good luck

I know its not your typical first question but I'm wondering if there's any way to get Windows 7 to see a connected and tethered Windows 6.1 Smartphone to use it as the modem versus the built in PC hardware ?

I need the cell but not the landline now and it would be a great help. Conversely - I cant seem to locate a Smartphone compatible fax software so I can generate a doc on the PC and send it to the cell for faxing.

Answer:Windows 7 fax from cell phone ?

Well I was just thinking about this myself today. I on the other hand can already tether my sony phone to get me on the net with 3G speeds though t-mobile. I have to fax some papers but I can't find a fax machine around that doesn't charge 1.50 a page after 2.

So can you tether the phone at all? USB or bluetooth? if it was a blackberry or other phone I could help with the basic connection but I have never used a windows phone.

you might want to try a google search for windows 6.1 smartphone forums, you might find an answer that way. oh and the modem phone could help me find your answer too.

Dropped my phone and screen cracked. The screen display still works but it doesn't register any touch so i can't unlock it. I have connected it to my pc but I still need to unlock it to get anything off it. I assume the screen is the most common thing to break on a phone so surely there is a way to unlock it and retrieve files through the windows phone app on my pc it would be stupid if there isn't.
In case Microsoft had their heads in the cloud and didn't think anyone in the world would break their screens and still need access to their locked phones files is there anyway to mirror the phones screen on my computer so I could enter the pin that way?

Answer:Connect Kyocera s2100 cell phone to Windows 7 PC

If there is no mass storage mode on your phone, a new data cable of any kind won't make any difference.Check you phone settings again for "mass storage mode". Without that mode you cannot do what you are trying to do.The generic mass storage driver is built in to Windows but unless you can switch the phone to "mass storage mode" Windows won't be able to install that driver.If all you need to do is transfer data from/to the phone's memory card, buy a card reader & plug it in to your computer's USB port.Then remove the memory card from the phone and insert it in to the card reader. Than gets around your current problem as far as the memory card is concerned.message edited by phil22

how to use windows cortana cell phone app with vw radio via bluetooth

Answer:How do I use Windows Cortana cell phone app with vw radio via Bluetooth?

First, you may have to have "Use an alternate Bluetooth audio connection for speech" checked under Bluetooth -> Advanced... My VW's radio worked better with it checked, your results may vary.
To use Cortana, once connected to your car's stereo, hit the call button in your car, then say, "Call Cortana"... once the phone call is in process, you can say the same things you would as if you had just held the search button on your phone.... "send text to xxx", "shuffle music", etc...http://www.windowscentral.com/how-to...-car-bluetooth

I am using Windows Live Mail Desktop as my email client on a computer running Win XP sp3. I understand Microsoft are encouraging folk to switch from OE to WLM

My cell phone is a Nokia 6110 Navigator.

Nokia provide a programme called PC Suite to sync phone and PC.

It enables sync with Outlook, Outlook Express and Lotus messenger but there seems to be no way to sync with WLM

I have sent Nokia support a number of emails asking for advice but they do not even reply.

Can anyone suggest how I can sync my cell phone with my PC and include the WLM as it naturally has all my contacts, emails etc.?

I have also got ActiveSync installed on my computer but that also does not seem to support WLM.

Oh lord, the LG phones (though in and of themselves excellent) have a tough time connecting to PC. Go to settings. Find about phone. Go to software info. Keep poking Build Number until a box says you're a developer. Go back and now there should be a settings box for developer options. Choose ON, and turn on usb debugging and always screen on.

So I keep getting these emails (in four places) and texts about changing my password on my phone to an app password because of two two-step, so I created an app password for my phone. However, I cannot seem to find where to update my MS account password on my phone.

Hi everyone. This is very frustrating. I broke the screen on my Lumia 925. Bought a replacement and have them both here. I did all the backups on my old device, and when the new one was set up, I restored it to those backups. Settings and apps transferred fine. Nothing else did.
Then I fired up the Transfer My Data app. It could only transfer contacts. So now I have texts and photos/videos that are stuck on my old phone.
Certainly there's a way to get all this stuff moved over at once. I don't have the patience to plug my phone in to my computer to do a manual transfer. I shouldn't have to in 2015. Also, that wouldn't help my texts problem. Texting backup is on.

I'm thinking about switching from my Lumia Icon to a Samsung Galaxy S6 since I'm getting tired of waiting for Microsoft to bring a new Windows Phone to Verizon. I will return to Windows eventually though if Microsoft ever releases a decent flagship Windows Phone on Verizon again. But until then I'm getting quite fed up and I'm losing my patience. I've waited over 2 years for a new phone and now it seems like it could be more years before there's even a possibility of a new flagship coming to Verizon. I'm locked in to Verizon because of a shared business account so I can't just switch carriers on a whim. If I do switch though, will I be able to transfer all my contacts and text messages over to the S6?

Answer:Can you transfer text messages and contacts from a Windows Phone to an Android phone?

Hi there,
WindowsCentral members would be more familiar with transferring SMS to a Windows Phone, rather than away from it.
Contacts definitely can be transferred. I'm not sure about SMS (Samsung Smart Switch is for transferring data from another Android device or an iPhone).
I'd suggest that you ask over at our sister site AndroidCentral. They would probably be better able to help. Ask a Question - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

I know Windows has a UserVoice site to make suggestions of features you would like, but I would like to find a place for support / troubleshooting with a technician concerning my 1020 random rebooting?
I have taken various steps to try and discover what it might be... I have turned off features, turned on features, uninstalled apps that might be a problem, turned on and off wifi / bluetooth. Basically I keep plugging away at what might be the issue. On a windows computer I have tools that I can run, as well as looking at Task Manager to see if there is some Process running that should not be. On the phone I don't know how to do that so I cant effectively troubleshoot the same way.
The bottom line is, I want to help the eco system because I truly believe in logic Microsoft has started with, and I would think others like me would be valuable beta testers in making the OS flawless, all I need is either someone on the inside, or perhaps some tools to help discover issues that will frustrate the masses if they were switching to the MS os.

Answer:Is there a place to get Windows Phone support / troubleshoot with technician on phone issues?

I think there was a way to get ahold of Nokia support at one time. I'm not sure of that status. If you search in your device specific forum you might be able to find a contact. Someone else may be able to provide a better answer.

They gave me a new one but my account was registered in the phone they gave me the first time. On my second phone i registered the same account and i changed the password so it could not be access from the original phone. To my surprise, the new phone never ask for the new password.

2) Plug your phone into the your PC and run the Windows device recovery tool.

Try restarting your phone (hold power and volume down together for about 10 seconds until the phone vibrates) then try the store again. I can tell you that the store is undergoing some changes and is a work in progress as they move things over to the new unified store. Be patient.

Hi, I live in USA and I got a Lumia 920 from AT&T 1 year ago. I got the recent 8.1 update on my phone and everything runs good, except that when I tried to use the Chinese version Cortana, it didn't work. I found that it's because the speech language is not matched with the phone display language, so I tried to change my phone display language to Chinese but it just won't allow me to do so. I can add Chinese to the Language list, but it will still use English as my phone language and I just couldn't find a way to change it.
Is it a bug or some kind of restriction that AT&T sets? Any help will be really appreciated!

whenever i start my nokia lumbia 520 it puts me in a windows boot and it says my windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. It then tells me to fix the problems it tells me to insert an installation disc to my computer(even though this is on my phone). It then tells me to choose a language and then click repair my computer.Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:How do I fix my phone if it puts me in Windows boot everytime I start up my phone?

Get Nokia Software Updater and then when installed, click "My phone does not start up or respond". It will download the latest firmware and install it to your phone. You will lose all data.

I just got a Samsung Intensity 2 and am looking to transfer my contacts from my old phone.
I had a Palm Centro that has infrared and have seen the infrared used to transfer that information before, I just have no idea how to do it.

Any ideas, or should I take them to the Verizon store and let them do it?
The nearest Verizon store is about 20 minutes away.
TIA.
 

Answer:Got new cell phone.

Hi. Verizon has a service that is free for their phones called Backup Assistant that you just have to activate. Have you already activated your new phone? From what I'm seeing, the Palm Centro is compatible with it. The problem is if you have already transferred your number to your new phone.

It's pretty easy, using Verizon's site, to transfer you number from one phone to another, set up backup assistant, reactivate your new phone, then again activate backup assistant. Verizon has it all layed out for you, or you could call their customer service and they'd do it all for you.

https://wbillpay.verizonwireless.com/vzw/nos/ba_nab/overview_def.jsp

So I guess the questions are:

-Have you already activated your new phone?
-Do you have an online account set up with them?

When I uploaded them successfully, the quality was greatly reduced and I can't figure out a way to modify them - it sounds very scratchy when I set it as a ringtone. I don't see any option that the program gives me to modify bitrate, etc (my friend uses BitPim which is not compatable with my phone, but his ringers are much higher quality). If anyone can help me increase the quality, I'd appreciate it!

send text data from cell to PC...
then fax from there...
.
also there are programs for getting fax to e-mail, ...
like E-fax whatever...
and then you can read email (fax message) on your cell...
.
of course the real question I have for you is what phone do you have that can attempt this?
.
I believe there are cell phones out there on the market that can kick my PC's butt...
ya' know what I'm sayin'?

I myself can send and receive faxes but without printing, just strictly through e-mail.

I need to get my printer ink refreshed, (my color got things all dried up) meanwhile at least I know what fax I got,

sometimes I go to the library and open my e-mail and print from there...rolleyes

Answer:Cell phone

Without any clue as to model numbers, its a hard call to offer constructive advice, but the Palm unit will allow the export (from the PC based copy on Palm Desktop) of the addresses and numbers to a .csv file.

If your new phone has connectivity to the PC, then it may be able to import them, but that would depend widely on the model and your own ability to connect it to a PC.

Alternatively the Palm will usually allow IR (InfaRed) beaming of the addresses, and if your new phone will receive IR data then that may be possible.

So my 2 year contract has been up for my cell phone, but my iPhone 4 is in absolute perfect working order. Of course, every time I have to call Verizon Wireless for any questions, they like to tell me that I am eligible for a new upgrade.rolleyes The last thing I want to do is upgrade (and pay $300) just so I could get that obnoxious 'Siri' voice with the iPhone 4S. On top of that, I pretty much despise Apple as a company based on my own experiences with their products and particularly their support. On top of that, I can't stand that when you buy anything Apple, they make it very difficult to use it with anything non-Apple...including their itunes songs (which I stopped buying about 3 years ago in favor of Amazon's mp3's).

SO, now with the announcement of the Apple iPhone 5, I decided to go out there and see what else is just as good or better than an iPhone.

In my research, I found the Samsung Galaxy S3, but that's a droid and I'm not a droid fan, which is why I went with the Apple.

The other one I found that I Want! and will definitely buy if it's as good as it looks is the Nokia Lumia 920, which will be Windows 8 based: http://www.nokia.com/us-en/products/phone/lumia920/ Typically, I don't get excited about phones, but this thing, based on specs and ability, looks awesome. Not to mention its awesome looking.:drool The problem is Verizon has traditionally not carried the high end Nokia or windows based phones.
 

Answer:What cell phone do you want?

iPhone 5 basically is slimmer and has a bigger screen without HD that Android has been doing for years. If I didnt have all these paid for apps on my iPhone then I would go Android at this point. The iPhone 5 brings very little to the table this round.

Question: Cell Phone

I know this is not a computer type of thing but it is about Cell Phones.

My Sister has a Boost Mobile Android Cell Phone and now she is going to get rid of it and get a Virgin Mobile Android Cell Phone.

Virgin Mobile told her she can take her old Cell Phone Number to her new Cell Phone.

So I went into her old Cell Phone Settings and went into Backup And Restore option.

It was under Settings all the way near the Bottom.

In here I see Backup With Wi Fi
so I put a Check in it.

Then I see Backup Data
So Tap it and I pick my Sisters G Mail Account Name.

And this is it I did not see anything like a List
Cell Phone Book
Contacts

So is my Sisters Cell Phone Phone Numbers Backed Up?
 

Answer:Cell Phone

That would backup her data and contacts and maybe apps data and such.

When you call Virgin to activate the new phone, you'll be asked the old phone's number and the new phone's serial number and within a short time delay-maybe 20 minutes the number will be transferred to the new phone and the old one will no longer have service.

Firstly, if you're unwilling to put up with freezes/bugs, don't upgrade your primary device. Secondly, if you're unable to live with a shorter battery life, don't upgrade.
Thirdly, what device are you using? If it's a mid-range device, i'd suggest waiting. Windows 10 Mobile runs significantly worse on my Lumia 822 than it does on my Lumia Icon.

Hello:
I have had a Nokia Lumia 1020 for about a year. I noticed about a month ago a few of my applications would not load. It would tell me that there was an error and that I had to either (a) buy the application; or (b) uninstall the application.
This only affected a few games at first (including Terraria which wiped a lot of hours of gameplay!). But it also, randomly, stopped happening to a few of my games (Tetris Blitz! for example).
Now the problem seems to have spread to critical core Windows applications. The first one I noticed was "Battery Saver." I will randomly get a warning that the application has stopped and that I should uninstall it or buy it. I can't uninstall it! Today the problem has spread to every single application on my phone. I can only access Messenger and Phone.
A soft reset requires me to wait about 20 minutes before my phone can be used. It takes about 10 minutes to identify the sim and about another 10 minutes before I can actually open messenger or the phone. Any attempt at any other application completely freezes the phone. I tried waiting 2 hours earlier today after clicking an application to see if it would eventually load, but to no avail.
The biggest concern is that I can't even access settings to try a hard reset. It's impossible to update. In fact, I haven't been able to update applications or my phone for a while now, either.
What are my options? Thanks for your help.
