Preferred Solution: Nokia lumia 520: how do I transfer files to PC?

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

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

I was in the folder on the SD card where I wanted the media.

Furthermore if the file type you send is not supported by windows phone you also can not "see" them on your phone.
The only way you would notice is if you use storage sense and there you only can see the total file size of "Others". This others incude non supported file typed.

I've lost one important note (I was editing it) in Evernote, and I can't find it anywhere. I hope it is in temporary files, but I can't access temporary files! Someone know how can I do that?

Answer:How do I access my nokia lumia 1020's temporary files?

Welcome to Windows Central.
Unfortunately, since there's no way to directly connect the storage drive of the L1020 to a PC (unlike removable SD Cards), those temporary files cannot be browsed through or accessed*. The only that the user can do about those temporary files is to clear them.
*- Note that even if the storage drive could be directly be connected to a PC, there's still no guarantee as to how the temporary files can be accessed or if those files can be useful at all. Re-writing the note itself would be easier rather than trying to recover the lost file.

You're only going to free up so much space by deleting those temp files. The system is constantly generating new temp files. You'll be there all day trying to delete them, and never gain any more space. Want to free up some storage space? Uninstall some apps or games that you don't use.

Besides this , NOKIA Lumia920 will feature 8 MP Camera at its rear for capturing some high quality videos and images and 1.3 MP camera at its front for enabling video chating.

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.

My phone battery went dead while using GMAPS which ate up the battery very quickly.

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.

Hello.

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

Hi. Having a problem with Nokia Lumia 520 and Nokia CK-100 Car Kit.
Was connecting & running fine while phione was Windows 8.
Immediately after the Windows 8.1 upgrade this changed.
Now every time I start the car the phone "connects" multiple times (used to do so just once).
So it goes "Phone Connected", followed by "Player Connected" about 2/3/4/5 times at the start of every journey.
PS. RThe phone stils works properly on the kit etc... - its just the nusiance of listening to it connect (& disrupting radio/music eytc... while doing so).
Tried un-pairing & re-pairing the devices etc... - no joy.
Any ideas?

When my phone begins to boot up, it crashes a couple seconds after the nokia logo pops up. Also, I don't think that the software is telling the hardware to charge the battery correctly because it has been charging for several hours but when detached from a charger, it immediately dies.
When on the charger, I tried a soft reset by holding the power button and volume down keys for 10-15 seconds which was ineffective I also tried a hard reset by holding the power button until the nokia screen appears, then holding the volume down button for the exclamation mark to appear but it shuts down before this happens.
Other notes: It shows the flashing icon light when on the charger and at times tries to boot up but when at the nokia screen shuts down.

Answer:Why is my nokia lumia 925 crashing at the nokia screen?

Hi, I had a similar problem. First I thought it was the battery, until I eventually figured out that it was the motherboard. Changing it won't be easy, so take it to a shop

Hello, I bought a Nokia Lumia 520 a while back (About two years ago or something i'm not too sure) It was perfectly fine until all of the sudden I couldn't hear anything apart from Ringtones (Couldn't listen to songs, couldn't hear people when calling etc) after messing around with the phone it turned out to be the earbud jack (can't remember the correct word at the moment) anyhow, I fixed it by basically shoving a tooth pick in it. So i'm like okay fine. But recently the phone got stuck in Airplane mode, I tried literally everything apart from going to the store to get it fixed because my warranty ran out and i'm not going to pay for this piece of crap. So, today I tried the "Windows Phone Recovery Tool", I let it do its thing while I take a shower but when I came back it was stuck on the red Nokia title screen. Unplugged the battery, re-connected it with my PC, pressed the Volume down button etc. Nothing works! And when it's plugged into the PC, the Windows Recovery Tool says "Acces is Denied. Verify Credentials"
So yeah. I am furious. I have never, ever had so many problem with a phone before..
Here are some screenshots:
Windows Recovery Tool: prntscr.com/69p0vf
The Red Nokia Title Screen (My Phone): prntscr.com/69p3wj

Answer:Can I get some help with my Nokia Lumia 520 (Red Nokia Title Screen)(8.1)?

1. Calm down ( you gotta have patience while working with gadgets )
2. You shouldn't shove things other than the hp jack into the hp port.
3. Airplane mode ? (tried going to settings and trying to disable it or remove the sim and put it back in / restart ?? )
4. That "Red Nokia Tile Screen" you saw was the firmware download screen.
5. One does not simply don't pull out a phone while its undergoing firmware loading.
6. Try with Windows Phone Recovery Tool again. (This time wait ... and have patience.)
7. The only and last solution is Lumia Software Recovery Tool. Be patient !

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?

I received Lumia Cyan update yesterday for my Nokia Lumia 720. After updating I received another update which was windows 8.1 update.
I updated that too successfully. Now everything seems to work fine except the facebook app. when I started it for the first time, It asked for Id and pwd. I entered correctly and successfully logged in. Then in next window it asked for syncing my facebook account with my windows phone. This page had two buttons "configure" and "not now". I chose configure. Then moments later next page comes up which asks for "using facebook photos on your lock screen".
This page also has two buttons like previous page "configure" and "not now". Problem is none of these two buttons are sensitive. Not able to proceed further from this page as not able to press any of these buttons. When I close the app and open it again the same page comes up. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app but the problem persists.
Please help

I have a Nokia Lumia 630 running Lumia Cyan on Cricket Wireless and can you give me a guess on when I should receive the update. Thank You for your feedback.

Answer:When will the Nokia Lumia 630 receive the Lumia Denim update?

No clue.
First, we'd have the see the rollout begin, meaning the 630 probably won't be too far behind. My best guess is 8.1 Update 1 + Denim going out later this year, albeit starting.
Second, given the track record of US carriers in rolling out updates, you're probably looking at a few extra weeks or months.

So... I have a Lumia 1020 (ATT), and I was trying to roll it back to Windows 8 so that I could get the Cyan update. I know I should have been patient, but I wasn't. I knew that the mini USB connection on my phone was kinda quirky, and sometimes it would connect to my computer when I plugged it in and sometimes it wouldn't (Windows would tell me that it would connect and disconnect, repeatedly, and sometimes it said it didn't recognize the device.)
So while I was trying to do the recovery, it connected and disconnected, and the Nokia Recovery Tool didn't go anywhere. I was hoping that it would but after a long while, it didn't go anywhere again. (it was stuck at 0%...)
I restarted the Nokia Recovery Tool and my Phone...but the recovery tool won't pick up my phone, and my phone is stuck on the red nokia screen.
Is there anything I can do? :(

Answer:Lumia Cyan for Nokia Lumia 520 release date ?

If you're on AT&T, you've got it already, just check for updates. If you've got the developer preview installed, you need to use the Nokia Software Updater for Retail to roll back to 8.0 first, then update to Cyan.

I took the battery and Sim card out for awhile but once the battery goes back in the loop begins again. I've had the phone for approx 7 months. I like the phone and would like to resolve this. I'm not sure if it is running Cyan or Denim. Thank for any help.

Is there any difference between the Icon and the Lumia 930? I've did research when it came out and I was certain that they're the exact same phone. The Icon is the name in the U.S.A and the Lumia 930 is the name in the U.K.
But I've heard several people act as if they're different phones. I just wanted to be certain. Am I correct that they're the exact same phone or have I been wrong this whole time?

Hello everyone,
I am new to this forum and hope you can help me with this issue, thank you very much for any help.
I just received a Nokia Lumia 925 and would like to use my backup settings from my Lumia 635, thought it was an easy process but I can't get the restore option to work properly in the new phone (obviously trying to use the backup made by the other phone).
I have the backup properly done as it shows in the 635 model (Manage backups-Settings backup/App backup --Using 548,37kb/18GB from OneDrive), but then when I go to the 925 model (resetting the phone, using my Microsoft account, etc), it doesn't show any backup made from the 635 model, it shows nothing. Then, if I make a new backup of this 925, it does work but obviously it is not the information from the 635, it is what in the screen in the 925 model after resetting the phone to factory.
Perhaps the two systems are not compatible and the information can not be transferred to one phone to the other??
-- Nokia Lumia 635: Windows Phone 8.1. O.S. Version: 8.10.12397.895.
Firmware revision number: 01061.00066.14235.36004
-- Nokia Lumia 925: Windows Phone 8.1. O.S. Version: 8.10.12393.890.
Firmware revision number: 3051.50009.1424.0012
Both of them are up to date.
Probably I am doing something wrong, so thank you for the advices.
