My nokia lumia 635 has been stolen, can I get some help with retrieving text messages?

Question: My nokia lumia 635 has been stolen, can I get some help with retrieving text messages?

My phone has been stolen and the sim card in it which i value like hell. Before I have broken my phone, i was able to transfer the photos and text messages onto a new phone with bluetooth, but i had the old phone there and it was on. If i never get my stolen phone back, i want to be able to get the text message swhich were on there and put them on my new phone. All of the photos that i want are on onedrive, so i can put them on a new phone, but i value my text messages and i really want them. I turned on 'text message backup' on my phone but i never saw any thing come out of it. Nothing shows up on my account here on the internet, just photos and my contacts and thats all. This is driving me crazy. I want advice on how to retrieve the text messages and i also want my same number if i cant ever get that phone and sim card back. I desp[erately need help. Will somebody help me??!!

Preferred Solution: My nokia lumia 635 has been stolen, can I get some help with retrieving text messages?

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: My nokia lumia 635 has been stolen, can I get some help with retrieving text messages?

When you get any Windows phone replacement with the same carrier. Your text messages will be restored.

Hello,
I tried to research this on my own, but I didn't find any answers.

Hey guys,
I am not able to find any information on this. Maybe it isn't possible.
I have a Nokia Lumia 1020 on Windows Phone 8.10.14176.243 and I have Cyan.
I am wanting to know if there was any way of transferring my text messages from the 1020 to my computer. I could go through and just do screenshots, but that would take too long. The reason I am wanting to find this out is because of the possibility of taking my former landlord to small claims court and I may be able to give the text messages as evidence.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Just to note, the "transfer my data" app doesn't give me the option of transferring my text messages to my computer. That may be due to my phone or my computer. I'll have to test with someone else's computer.

Answer:Transfer text messages from Nokia Lumia 1020

Don't think you can do it to a computer. I think its only between Windows Phones via message sync?

Receiving calls is not a single problem, but I can't receive texts. does anyone have the same issue? Or has anybody solvee this problem theirselves?

Answer:Why is my Nokia Lumia 625 so slow receiving text messages?

Text lag and failure to receive are carrier issues...
If the problem has been ongoing, ask for a new SIM or ask for a reprovision (which is having your account access to the network refreshed).

Answer:How do I retrieve deleted text messages from my Nokia lumia 610?

Sadly once deleted, it's gone.
Unless it hasn't synced thus you would need to do a Hard Reset and hope the text message was in the OneDrive backup. However odds are slim, and a bit extreme...

Answer:Nokia Lumia 930 is turning itself off mid text why ? help please

I would strongly urge you to make all necessary backups and flash a clean copy of the OS and Firmware using Lumia Software Recovery Tool found here: How can I recover/reset/restore my phone software? - Microsoft - USA
This will rule out any software issue. Test it without restoring the backup and if all is smooth then you can do a Factory Reset and restore your backups. (Settings > about > reset your phone) If everything stays smooth great!!! If something then gets glitchy after the backup is restored you need ot look at your most recently installed Apps for the troublemaker.
If the issue is still present after the flash and before the backup restore, then you have a hardware issue and should seek a warranty repair.

Picture messages or MMS require data and the gateway is controlled by your carrier.

Without more specifics, no one can say what the settings should be. You can find mms settings by using Settings > cellular + SIM > SIM settings > add mms apn

My lumia 630 has stopped receiving text messages, I can send messages to other phones but cant receiving messages. Phone worked fine for about a month

Answer:Why has my phone stopped receiving text messages (Lumia 630)?

It may be an issue with your carrier or your SIM card.
If you can send SMS, there is no fail message and recipients can verify they did in fact get the text, then your phone is configured properly and it is not hardware/software related to your handset.
SMS text lag is a known issue and is usually carrier side. I would consult with them and ask for A) a re-provision or B) a new SIM
Provisioning is when your account accesses are granted carrier side. On CDMA it is one method, on GSM another... A Re-Provision is the resend of those authorizations to where they reside in the system. A do over. LOL. To get a reprovision done usually requires escalating up the ladder in tech support. Most customer service types will have no clue what you are talking about. Request a help ticket and get the escalation process started.

Neither platform is proactive like Cortana is. I can ask Siri to read my messages but it requires I start by holding home or saying Hey Siri.

Hi. My computer was recently stolen. Its a netbook (Aspire One). I won't put the serial number here for reasons of privacy, but how I can retrieve the IP Address or mac address of my computer?

Answer:Asking about a retrieving a stolen computer

The IP was assigned by your internet provider. Tracing anything with just a MAC address is almost impossible. Even with the serial number. The police would have to have the laptop in their hands.1) It have to be connected to the internet.2) Mac address can be changed3) When laptop is used within network with router or firewall it wont be shown outside.4) There has to be some institution who actually collect such data from ISP's which is hardly an option due to law. From what i know its hard to track a cell phones so MAC address would be even harder. From what i know in Europe there has to be a good reason to do so. Police or a court need to send request to the ISP.. cell network etc... so the its a long way to even try.

Answer:how to transfer text messages from my samsung android phone GT-B5512 to lumia 730

I hope your Samsung phone has Bluetooth capability. Turn on Bluetooth. On your L730, open the app called transfer my data (if not there dload from store). It will connect with your old phone and you can transfer contacts /sms etc. Follow on screen instructions. It's easy to understand.

I upgraded two days ago and would like to revert back. I want to keep my contacts and text messages.
Before upgrading, I downloaded the Microsoft SMS & Contact Backup. I backed content up to my SD card. I also had the backup functions checked on the device options.
After upgrading to Win 10, I no longer see the SMS & Contact Backup.
How should I proceed?
Thanks!

Answer:How do I restore my Lumia 1520 back to 8.1 from 10.0 without losing contacts and text messages?

Open the messaging app, tap ... and then tap settings. Make sure that message backup is turned on and also for messages to be synced across devices. If you can, I would wait a day for it to backup all of your messages. The messages one is a separate setting from regular device backup!
Your contacts are in the cloud, so they should all appear when you downgrade. To check this, log into your Microsoft account on a PC to make sure that all of your contacts are there.

Answer:Decided to switch to Nokia: Shall I buy Lumia 930 or or wait for a new Nokia Lumia handset?

there's no rumors of any 1030, 1530, or any new top-of-the-line device.
I'd just pull the trigger now and get a 930.

When I try to send a text message on my Nokia Lumia 928 is says: "Your SIM card is missing or damaged" and does not send the message. It also will not make calls and when I try it gives a message "SIM error." I examined the card and it doesn't seem to be damaged. I didn't drop my phone or anything to cause damage.
Why does it give this message?
How can I fix this problem?
Will everything on my phone be lost if it actually is damaged?

Answer:Why does my Nokia Lumia 928 give me an error message when I try to send a text message?

SIM cards can go bad... SIM Trays can go bad.
Test this by trying another SIM in your Phone... Does it work? Tray is good. Try your SIM in another Phone. Does it get seen? SIM is good.
You could ask your provider for a new SIM also.
Occasionally, this could be a software issue. Try a Soft Reset (you won't loose data). Hold the Volume Down + Power buttons until the phone vibrates and reboots (about ten seconds).
Otherwise, make a backup and then reset with Lumia Software Recovery Tool as described here: FAQ - How can I recover/reset/restore my phone software? - Microsoft - USA

Hi,I bought this Nokia Lumia 820 in Jan,2013 from Chennai,India.After 6 months I faced some issues like low battery life and also a line at the center of the screen.So I went to Nokia Care, Taramani, Chennai-India,they told me that they will send it to their head office and may take a week time.I agreed and went back on the desired date .Then they told that Company has decided to give me a new Lumia 820 instead of my old Lumia 820 as they were not able to get the accurate solution.But the warranty will be carry forward.I agreed and came back home.From then onwards, I didn't faced any issues.Now after 2 years,I broke my LCD of same Lumia 820 accidentally in San Francisco,CA-USA.I went to one of the repair center here and the first question he asked me was "Did anybody tried to open it?".I replied no after in Chennai,India and that too was new.To my shock he said "It's a fake copy ...the screws were stripped."They cheated and gave me used phone instead of my new phone.
Is this the way they are cheating customers.
I need an answer for this from Nokia India.

Answer:Fraud:Nokia Care ,Chennai have given me fake copy of Nokia Lumia 820 after I faced some issues. What do I do?

I refurbished phone isn't a fake phone. It's a refurbished phone.
I don't know about international, but in the US, its common to get a refurbished phone as an exchange.

I've read some similar (but not identical issues) on the forum. Hopefully someone can assist.
My phone battery went dead while using GMAPS which ate up the battery very quickly.
Been trying to charge it for hours, but all I get is a flashing WINDOWS symbol at the bottom of the phone, then the NOKIA logo appears about every 30 seconds, but then nothing else happens.
Tried pressing the POWER OFF and VOLUME BUTTON simultaneously for extended periods, but no joy.
I have too much stuff on the phone to do a hard reset, and I'm on the road, so kind of in need in a quick and easy solution that doesn't affect my data (if one exists).
Thanks

Answer:Windows 10 Nokia Lumia 930 - NOKIA logo flashes up, but does not boot

Maybe the device is on a reboot loop somehow, when you try to charge it keeps on trying to reboot but fails because the battery is out of enough power to finish the boot.
Leave the device connected to the charger for a while as the device is deeply discharged then try the soft reset combo power off and volume button.

Please can you help? Normally I have no troubles taking heaps of photos & videos with the Nokia Pro Camera App on my Nokia Windows phone, but last night I recorded about 3 minutes of footage and after recording it had completely disappeared. The footage was no where to be found, not in my camera roll, not in any of the folders and not on my onedrive. I thought I must have made a mistake so I took about 10 seconds of footage as a test and it saved fine. I also turned my phone on and off. This morning my friend tried to record about 4 minutes of footage, and again, afterwards- the same thing.. no where to be found :( Any suggestions?

Hi guys, greetings from Nairobi. I've had my Nokia Lumia 620 for a little over 6 months now. I was on 8.1 through the developer's preview. So I was just sitting there, hadn't used my phone for around 15 minutes. When I checked the phone, it was stuck on the Nokia screen. I assumed that it was restarting so I left it for a couple more minutes. It's been on the screen for around 5 hours. I have tried the soft and hard reset several times but still nothing works. I'm still stuck on the Nokia screen and the device is not detected when I plug it on the laptop through the USB cable. Seen a couple of videos on using Navifirm but can't do much because the device isn't being detected. Hoping I won't have to take it to the care center. Anything else I can try? Looking forward to your responses. Much thanks.
By hard resetting I followed the following steps:
Turn off the Lumia,
Pressed and held the Power Button, did not release until the phone vibrates.
Pressed and held the Volume Down Button, did not release until the LCD showed the exclamation mark.
Pressed Volume Up Button Key and released
Pressed Volume Down Button Key and released
Pressed Power Button Key and released
Pressed Volume Down Button Key and released.
The soft reset was simply power button and volume down button.
I should also point out that the USB cable I'm using isn't the one that I got the phone with :) lost that one.
Thanks guys.:)

Answer:My Nokia Lumia 620 has been stuck on the Nokia startup screen for 5 hours now.

Try a different cable and use Nokia Care Suite to reset the phone, you will lose everything on the phone but it should reset it to factory settings. You will then probably need to get it updated via Developer preview again...good luck.

Hello,
after Outlook Express 6 crash, I see no messages in my inbox. I've found inbox.dbx file in my PC, it contains 747 MB of data. I've tried to import these messages via Import function in OE, but at Application\Data\Identities\DCxxxxxx I see only one entry and it is not Inbox.dbx
I've downloaded OE-mail recovery and it recovered all 3000 messages, but in trial version I see headers only. Is there any way to get back these messages to OE?
XP SP2.
 

Answer:Solved: Retrieving OE messages

Create a New folder on the desktop and place a copy of the DBX file in it.

Download and unzip DBXtract to the desktop.
CLICK HERE
Double click the DBXtract.exe file to run it.

In the Action section, set it to save "By Subject". The "Remove Re:" will remove the Re: from the message title of replies so it's up to you if you leave that checked or not.
DO NOT check Recover mode.

In the Input section, click the Browse button.
Browse to the folder containing the DBX file and click OK.
The "Path" line should now point to the folder with the DBX file and the "File" line should have the name of the DBX file.

In the Output section, click the Browse button. Browse to the same folder as the Input.
The Input Path and the Output Path should be the same.
Click the Extract button.
If there are any messages that can be recovered, they will show up in the same folder with the DBX and be in the form of individual EML messages.
The EML's can be drag and dropped into any folder in OE.

Hello all, I'm wondering if anyone could tell me what the cause of the trouble I've been having is.

Firstly, I noticed something was strange when my World of Warcraft account was stolen then banned. So I scanned for Viruses and a few trojans appeared and those we're deleted.

Once I'd scanned several times with different antiviruses (avast, norton, malwarebytes, trend micro) I thought that they should all have gone...

Yet for some reason when I turned my UAC on (it is usually on, for some reason it was off) and I restarted a message appeared saying "Your computer will shut down in 60 seconds" and I was helpless to stop it.

When the computer was back on, the UAC was then turned off again. So I turned it up to Max and restarted again and the message didn't appear.

So now I believe there to be a virus still left on my pc, but I cant seem to get rid of it.

Here is my Hijackthis log file, hopefully someone will notice something and help me out

Hello.

I can easily afford the Icon once i return my 1520 but I will need to save up more to get the 930.

Basically the same phone, except the Icon was made for Verizon. Where are you? The 930 won't get LTE in the US.

This is a question that may have been asked previously so I apologize if this is a reoccurring thing. I've finally decided to leave the Apple ecosystem and start looking for a windows phone. Its come down to the Lumia 925 and the Lumia 1520 on AT&T. I've reports and blogs about problems with each, more so with the 925. I have small hands for a guy so the 1520 is somewhat intimidating. The 925 however, I've read has poor reception problems, battery issues, and heating problems. Would anyone be able to inform me if the 925 issues have been resolved through updates or if the problems still continue? Also, if either of the two phones developed problems with 8.1? (beta or if you received the update today since it has been released). Thanks so much

Answer:Nokia lumia 925 vs Nokia lumia 1520

Well I have the 925, was part of the dp and now have cyan as well... When I first received my phone the battery life was horrible, but after switching off some of the background tasks, draining it (a few times) and charging it again the battery life stabilized :) With 8.1 the battery life for most 925-ers improved a bit more. The heating issue did remain tho, however I should note that the 925 was made for casual use and not for intense gaming (anything that requires a lot of ram usage).. Personally i solved this problem by purchasing a terrapin back cover case :D The heating is still there (yes Im a gamer from time to time), but with the cover on you will barely notice it! My reception is pretty good, but I don't live in the US so we have that.. Wifi has been an issue, but apparently that was a general issue (not limited to the 925)...
I can't say anything about cyan yet, because I just updated lol
