Preferred Solution: How do I transfer my contacts to my email on my pc from my Nokia Lumia?

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.)

Your contact you will find in the PEOPLE hub.
What you also can do is
- copy the contact on the SIM card of your gt 181600 and and than place your SIM card in the lumia and in People hub import contacts from SIM.
-And the account you used in your gt 181600 in SETTINGS > email + accounts > add new account

How do I transfere my Contacts from the phone to the SIM-Cart on Nokia Lumia 610?

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.

If your aim is just to get your contacts on your samsung phone, just add a new Microsoft exchange server account (the one microsoft account you are using on your Lumia) on your Samsung phone, turn sync and internet connection ON...and there you go...all your contacts appear in your samsung phone.
Take backup of the same (as it is possible on Android device) ;)

I know this started happening a while ago but am now just getting to the point of figuring out if it can be fixed.
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?
Thanks

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.

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.

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.

I have been using 2003 and 2007 Outlook Express for my emails for years. Is it possible to transfer my email contacts from 2007 to my new computer?

Thanks LeeB

I searched tutorials and found nothing

Answer:Can I transfer Email Contacts from Outlook 2007 to W-10 Default Email

Dealing with different E-Mail clients [installed] and online/Webmail has become one of the most frustrating issues of the last few years.

Outlook Express was discontinued, last came with Windows XP. Windows Vista had Mail and Windows 7 had no built-in E-Mail Client. With Outlook Express the contacts were in the Windows Address Book and the file name was some_name.wab, whatever the user set the E-Mail up as. Outlook Express did not use the 2003 and 2007 version titles, that was with Microsoft Outlook, part of Microsoft Office which used different storage techniques. Generally both types could Export contacts as .csv files which could be used in other programs or even as a spreadsheet in such a program as Excel, QuattroPro, etc. Win7 and newer have a Contacts listing in C:\Users\user-name that also can be exported.

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.

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 email contacts from one pc to another?

For your contacts, you could export them from OE in CSV format and then import them into Outlook. Alternatively, if your OE contacts are in Windows Address Book, you could find your .wab file, copy it to the other computer, and then import it to Outlook. See http://www.insideoe.com/files/wab.htm. Another reference: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/286116

Email messages can also be imported. Since you're working with two computers, this reference should work for you: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/o...m-outlook-express-to-outlook-HA001094387.aspx

Have you clicked on the link provided in #1 at the top. This takes you to information about how to do what you are asking. Tip:Putting this in Google will find lots more hits:"export windows live mail"Once you have the files, if the real issue is putting them onto a CD then click this link below:http://www.ofzenandcomputing.com/bu...It's just a "copying files to CD" process. Best copy the exported files to an empty folder somewhere, such as the desktop, then follow the link to put them onto the CD. Look at the CD afterwards from "Computer" to make sure they have arrived there OK. You can do it in one go but using two steps is easier to understand and safer. Using a CD-R or CD+R (finalized) is more secure than using a re-writeable CD-RW.

Answer:How do I delete an email from my Nokia lumia 925

Are you on WP 8.1 or 10?
Do you mean a single email or an email account?
WP8.1 Single email
Open the account tap the email you want to delete and a pull down screen will pop up with DELETE.
WP8.1 E-MAIL ACCOUNT.
Go to Settings
Go to E-mail+accounts.
Tap and hold on the account and a pull down will pop up with DELETE.
If you want to keep the account, because you also have contacts or use the calendar then after deleting the account add it again but disable the email sync.
If you wanted to know how to do it in W10 please join the site and reply on this post or make a new post with more details what you want.
Good luck.

Sometimes my Nokia Lumia 925 from TMobile, when checking for new emails, starts "synching" endlessly. It will just sit there and scroll across the screen displaying "synching" and not pull in new emails even though there are new emails.
This happens sporadically. Not all the time.
ALso, sometimes it will not download a full email. It will display (click to download full message 72kb) and I will click, and it tries to download a 72k text email for 30 minutes and finally I give up and click the thing to stop it from attempting to download
What could this issue be?

Answer:Nokia Lumia 925 Email Synching Takes Forever

could be various things, what email account are you using? is it a gmail account, if so make sure that you have it set up so it only downloads emails from the last 7 days, otherwise it takes ages to sync.

HI! I recently upgraded my Lumia 920 from Window 8 to 8.1.
At the time of setting up my phone I didn't bother much about opening a Microsoft account and just typed in some random email.
Few days back my phone got stalled the service center upgraded my software to 8.1. Now with the upgraded version it is asking me password for the random email....which I cant remember. Since I have never used that email the Microsoft recovery is not helpful; it keeps declining coz of lack of information I provide.
Now I cant download or update any of the apps as it keeps asking for my email & its password for which I have no clue.
Can I change the email linked to Nokia Lumia 920? How can I do that?

Answer:Can I change the email linked to Window 8.1 (Nokia Lumia 920)? How can I do that?

For that you need to do a hard reset and fill in a proper account and password. That account is needed throughout the entire ecosystem of your phone.

On my blackberry I had before the lumia, the email app would keep every email from when I activated the phone. My lumia 635, I've noticed, automatically discards emails from 5 days ago. Is there anyway to keep the app from doing that? I like to have all my emails readily available right on my phone instead of logging on from a pc to check older emails. I've looked under the email app settings and there's no option to adjust when emails are discarded. Thanks in advance!

In early Feb 2016 my Nokia Lumia 710 stopped syncing with / downloading messages from my yahoo.com.au email account. No changes were made to the email account or the settings within the handset - it just stopped working.
All other aspects of the phone still work fine and I can still access the email account via POP from my laptop's Outlook.
I have tried deleting the email account from the phone and then re-adding it - no luck.
I have tried various versions of the server / SSL settings on he phone (including mirroring those that work from Outlook) - no luck
I have tried from both wifi and mobile data connections - no luck
I have enabled 2FA within Yahoo's web interface and entered a dedicated custom application password for the phone - no luck.
I suspect this is likely something simple that I am overlooking but it has me stumped. Any advice on how to overcome this SNAFU would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:I rest my Nokia Lumia 822 and I can't get my contacts back, how can I get them back?

Contacts typically Sync with an email account - e.g. Outlook.com/gmail. So check online in those for where it is and then in the Phone/Accounts, make sure Contacts sync is checked.

Is this what's suppose to happen?
The main hotmail email (Microsoft Account) on my wife's 820 were no longer able to sync, so I decided to add it again via email setup and then remove the original one. Essentially resetting new then replacing by deleting the old (both are same email address. New email setup (same Microsoft Account) was able to sync properly. Problem - her contacts she had on the phone were no longer on the phone.
Other similar posts suggests WP8 is suppose to back-up contacts automatically to the Microsoft Account in the cloud but looks like it has not backed it up. Known issue or is there a setting or manual backup method in WP8.1?
Thank you

Answer:Losing contacts after main live email account was added again (Lumia 820 + WP8.1)

The backup method for contacts is through the MS account. If you used a different account you won't have the contacts unless you transfer the contacts to the new MS account.
All backup of WP is tied to the MS account. When you change accounts you lose that backup information.

Answer:my nokia lumia has 2 email accounts, one gmail one outlook, both function but will not respond.

"Frozen" how? Are we talking about email+accounts section (settings) or the mail app?Try a Soft ResetThe soft reset is the same thing as pulling your battery (on devices where that is possible). This method will not remove anything at all from your phone and is completely safe to attempt in any problem situation.You perform the soft reset by having your phone turned on. Then press and hold the volume down + power buttons until your phone vibrates and restarts. Note that you should not touch the device screen during the process (not even when the 'slide down to power off' prompt appears).If you have more questions or details to share, please join the site so you can reply in this thread.

Hi, I was trying to backup my contacts on my Nokia E-71 phone using Outlook 2007, this is my first time doing it. So apparently the current Outlook in my pc already has a whole bunch of contacts which belonged to someone else and so both of our contacts are now merged together, is there a way to undo the sync?

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.

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.

Tried pressing the POWER OFF and VOLUME BUTTON simultaneously for extended periods, but no joy.

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.

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

The downloading and installation works perfectly but then it immediately says that it's not recognizing my Nokia Lumia Phone! They say elsewhere that there is a special app for the Lumia but this app is limited to music, pictures, videos, podcasts and
ringtones. So contacts, the most important for a Phone, is not even included. There are surely other makes where this is possible and where you can easily see and manage all contacts. On which cellphones this Nokia Suite is really working then?
