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.)

of course silly!
the public push will happen regardless of Insider or not. (may be subject to carrier approval)

I would like to replace my current WP with 8.1 Update 2 with a W10 phone. Should I buy 640XL & try to update to W10 (by Insiders or wait for Official) or else i wait for a new W10 phone which has the similar price & specs of 640XL?

Answer:When will 640XL get Windows 10 update Officially (not insider's)?

You'll wait a few months for a device from MS with similar specs. However, there have been several new models released that run W10M. If you're not particular about getting a microsoft branded phone, you could purchase one assuming it is available in your region
You could also test with insider after buying 640xl. But you'll have to do upgrade process carefully. Check the forums for guidelines

Just bought the Lumia 640XL. The phone has Windows 10 installed. I use AOL as my email provider. I am unable to load the app or even go to AOL through Microsoft Edge or Google. I keep getting a message that the AOL app doesn't work on this device. I'd really appreciate any help you can give me.

Answer:I have Windows 10 installed on my Microsoft Lumia 640XL but can't install AOL app

Go to Outlook Mail app and set up your AOL email address there. Go to Outlook Mail app > Manage Accounts > Add an account. There I reckon you will have to add your AOL account by choosing Other Account. Make sure that on your server, your AOL email account is set to IMAP, so that you can receive emails on more than one device. Hope this helps!

Yes.The Windows mobile 10 are not released yet,and if you want w10 the only way until now is via insiders.I'm an owner of Lumia 640 xl dual sim,and I dont know how 535 works but I tell you to download the w10.They are so good and smooth from the last 2-3 updates.In the app you can choose between slow-fast.And if you don't want to get fast and with buggs updates choose slow.

Answer:Windows insider app not working on Lumia 730 for those with denim update

Then I am shocked that you did not read which OS version you need.
Your OS is probably to high. So you have to wait till Microsoft releases an W10 version which allows higher OS versions to join.http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...pported-phones

Hey there! What happened is this: I downloaded the update onto my SD card(32gb) without any problems using OTA on my phone. But, when it restarts in order to install the downloaded update, I get back to my Windows 8.1 Update 2, and there's an error saying that the system tried to install the update from the card, but it couldn't. Can anyone help me with this?

Answer:Why am I unable to install Windows 10 Insider Preview in my Nokia Lumia 530 Dual SIM?

Because W10TP does not support the install from a SD card yet ( butyou download an update to a SD card).
So if you want to install the W10 TP you can not use your SD card.
This function will however be included in W10 but we do not know when.

Answer:Windows 10 on Lumia 640XL

From reading peoples posts on here, the 640 and XL run very well on Win10M.
I would run the 'Windows Device Recovery Tool' to check your firmware is upto date.
If it needs updating you will need to do a backup, as the process will wipe your phone and put it back to WP8.1.
You can then upgrade Win10m again.

Hi
I have been using windows 10 on lumia 920 via windows insider but its a tech preview only. Will i get chsnce to update full version or not ? Or i have to stick up with this tech preview? And once i updated my phone with windows insider then can i again update with same i sider so that ican get latest tech preview Or is there any other ethod to get updated? Thanks

Answer:Will the Nokia Lumia 920 get a full update of Windows 10 or not?

So basically I'm going to give you the complete rin down, the Nokia Lumia 920 among others is 2 years old and therefore much to my and many others disappointment will not get the official update, at least not the way you'd expect. What you will need to do is continue using insider, then once you get the RTM version open the app, and opt out of updates, you will get normal updates and not the insider ones, At anytime you will be able to reinstall the app and get preview builds again if you so choose. But in a short summary, you will get the official update, but through the windows insider app.

In general, I do not know why Microsoft selected Nokia for their phones. I'd prefer Samsung. I hope Windows OS will be available soon on other phones.

Hi there I am a newbie to Smartphones. I have purchased the Windows Lumia 640XL with a Sim only deal. I also purchased the above microSDHC-I memory card and like others before me have received the Sony brand with an adapter.
I am 72 yrs young and although quite IT literate could I ask why the need for an adapter and how does one use it?
I am assuming that the SD card will work with the phone.
Thank you in anticipation of a problem solved.

Answer:Sony microSDHC UHS-I 16GB Memory Card with adapter Windows Lumia 640XL

You can use this adapter (SD card size) to put the MicroSD card in and then insert it in your PC. Most PC's have a SD card slot but not a MicroSD card slot hence the adapter.
And indeed the micro SD card fits in your phone.
In the past there only where SD cards but these are "big" so microSD where made and with the adapter you still can use the micro SD card (small) in SD card (big) device

How well does the 620 run the Insider Builds on Fast Ring? I have a 620 lying around and was wondering if it could run well. My primary phone at the moment is the 630, and most people would run it on that but then again, it's my primary phone. I'd like if someone who uses the 620 itself or has had first hand experience using it gives me an answer.

Answer:Lumia 620 on Windows Insider

Well, lumia 520 has basically the same hardware as 620. My lumia 520 is running insider builds on Fast Ring. It has made my phone very laggy, so much so that i bought the new phone. Because phone is basically unusable b/c of lag.

Hey folks, long time wp users trying to pick my next phone. I am open to any suggestions but I am mainly concerned with the lumia icon for verizon or an unlocked 640xl that would most likely be used on cricket.
I can get a certified preowned icon from verizon for $150 through their prepaid service. The 640xl is $250 new through Microsoft.
I'm mostly focused (pun intended) with the camera. I love to take photos with my phone. Mostly of my nephew and niece and my pups. I do enjoy macro shots as well. Does anyone have any experience comparing the two cameras? I know there's a megapixel difference but I'm really not hung up on that.
Also does anyone have any experience with VZW preowned? I got my wife an iphone and it was in perfect condition.
Thanks for any help

Answer:Lumia Icon or Lumia 640xl

The icon is a premium phone and the 640xl is still budget I've just sold my 930 & have bought a 640xl. I miss the dedicated camera button,qi charging and only have 8gb storage although you can add a memory card it does slow the phone down as it only has 1gb ram.

Hi there, I've been using android for 5 years but I've never been able to afford a flagship or a high end phone since in my country (Mexico) they're wildly overpriced, and so, my experience with android has many times ended in a headache.
So I looked around and found these 2 WP to be great options, within my price range and my finalists for my switch to WP which are in my limited experience extremely stable and swift.
Thing is I can't decide between the 2 because, other than the size (which isn't something that I care too much about), they seem to share a lot of things and differ on others. Which one would you think would give a better long-term service? I would think the newest is a better option but I'm no expert... also something I value a lot is the camera, is a 13 MP sensor better than a 10 MP PureView one?

Answer:First WP, help me decide! Lumia 640XL or Lumia 830?

My experience is significantly improved with the latest, .63 build, on my L640.
So yes, you should go for it if you can't wait any longer. 'Cause i don't see official release anywhere on the horizon. MS has been, as people in my country often say, selling us fog.

As of October 2017, I can't find a reliable tutorial for installing Windows 10 on Nokia Lumia 520. Neither I could find a Custom Rom of Windows 10 for Lumia 520, nor i could find a way to update. Most of Tutorials I found were outdated or doesn't work anymore.
Please somebody suggest me a reliable tutorial for installing win 10 on Lumia 520. I am willing to do it at any cost. I am currently running Lumia Cyan, Windows 8.1 (RM-915), Firmware Version: 3058.50000.1424.0001

Hi, have a brand new Lumia 640XL. This thing has awesome call quality. But, I live in a small town and may not have true 4GLTE from some of my cell towers. So my speakerphone experience is not good, it distorts any notch above 6 on the volume from a regular phone call. Anyone know, is my speaker bad so I take the phone back, or is it just sketchy reception??

Hello guys
My phone is currently a lumia 730
a school friend bought a lumia 640 xl, and showed me and I found it very beautiful design and large screen, despite the 730 present a more premium design.
Within cameras, I did not get to compare but he told me that the camera 640xl is on par with the 730, even though 13MP, and he said the L730 has better results at night, and the front of the L730 is slightly higher. Here in Brazil they cost almost the same price. 500 r$(133 USD) n xl 55o r$(146 USD)
It's worth leaving the L730 by 640xl considering cameras, battery, screen
and if that report that the lumia 730 has the same quality or better is true

Answer:Lumia 730 or 640xl?

I would go for the slightly larger screen size, but that is because I like large screen phones. Good luck with whichever device you choose.

Am using lumia 1320 and pretty satisfied with its performance with windows 10 mobile my question is should i buy lumia 640xl or stick with my lumia 1320.

Answer:Should i buy lumia 640xl

One problem with the 1320 is the quality of the images it takes, 5MB compared to 13 and Zisse optics + the capabilities of LC5.0.
For me The camera is the only reason to make me switch to the 640XL

Hello, in April of last year I was a part of the fast ring for the Windows Insider Program and I downloaded Windows 10 on my Lumia 928. I soon found out that after I installed it that I couldn't text or make calls. I was very off put by this and decided that the Insider Program isn't for me and rolled back, but after more than a year of waiting I'm restless to finally get Windows 10 on my phone. I now currently have a Lumia 730 and am on Verizon. Is it possible to join the Slow Ring of the Insider Program to get Windows 10 on my phone, but still be able to make calls and send texts through Verizon? I'm looking for someone who has done this and can confirm or deny. Also, on an unrelated note I recently signed myself up for the Slow Ring on my PC but I haven't gotten the Redstone build yet. Do I have to wait for the next build to come out or will I be able to download the current one in a some time? Thanks, Jake

Answer:Windows Insider Preview with Verizon Lumia 730

I feel the issues you faced may have been a fluke since I know people on the Icon are enjoying 10.
Even then, I would get on the Release Preview ring, NOT slow or fast for the time being.

I was upgrading to the latest slow ring upgrade using the insider program. It downloaded smoothly and stuck once while preparing for installation due to less memory. I cleared out some apps and data and tried again and it proceeded. After that it rebooted and started installation (the gears started grinding). But after sometime it suddenly showed a sad smiley face. The phone rebooted and gears came but it again showed the sad smiley face. Every time I connect it to a power source it goes on a loop like that. I tried hard resetting but the exclamation mark never reached. The windows recovery tool is not identifying it.
What should I do?

Answer:My lumia 520 bricked while upgrading to windows 10 using the insider program.

Can you get into the boot loader?
Do a soft reset and then hold the volume up button immediately when it vibrates it may take a few tries. Sometimes for me it's just before it vibrates or right on the mark. Which is pretty weird....
Hold the volume up button until you see Nokia written larger than normal ontop of the screen, not the middle.
Start the Windows Device Recovery Tool and choose my device is not detected, immediately plug in your phone and wait abit.
Post back results.
Also use the Nokia pre-supplied cable whenever possible as that is factory cable.
Once in the bootloader do not let the phone run out of charge and always before flashing make sure your phone is fully charged!

Hi Guys, I just activated Cortana by selecting US region, and since I noticed that the "Loading" or "Resuming" appears more often than before especially whenever I open my text messages. Is there any setup I need to change or this is just normal?

Answer:What to do with too much 'loading screen' on my lumia 640xl?

It's not normal. Resuming or loading are place holders for CPU/IO activity and depending on what's running (services/processes) on your phone your experience may vary. Adding Cortana would not hinder performance unless you have it pinned to your start screen as a live tile. Also check the background tasks under battery saver and disable the ones not needed. Lastly (not necessary though) kill all the apps that you're done using from the task switcher.
