Preferred Solution: How can I receive mms messages on my Nokia Lumia Windows phone?

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.)

You need your iPhone friends to enable Send as SMS as well in imessage settings. It is not something you can fix on your end but a well known issue with imessage to certain carriers and phones.

About a month ago, i did an update on my phone. After the last update it will not let me send or recieve picture messages. Ive pretty much tried to do everything possible to get it back, but nothing is working. I dont want to do a master reset because i dont want to loose everything in my phone. Could some please help me, i would really appreciate it soooo much. Thankyou

Answer:Why isn't my Nokia lumia 520 letting me send or receive pictures messages?

Picture messages or MMS require data and the gateway is controlled by your carrier.
Do a web search for "Lumia 520 <carrier name> mms settings" to find the best advice on what mms settings you need for 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

I just purchased a Nokia Lumia 635 and I'm not very happy this is happening. Never happened with my old phone. So is it the phone or the carrier?

Answer:Why does my phone receive duplicate messages? Or sometimes it doesn't send/receive messages at all?

You aren't alone. I get duplicate text messages from my wife from time to time. She is also a WP user. It started when I switched to iPhone and then switched back to WP with a 1520.3. Sometimes I only get one duplicate, but other times I get the same message seven or eight times, even after I have already responded. Its fairly rare, but it is certainly annoying when it happens.
?I have no idea what is causing it, or how to make it stop.

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.

I have had a problem for the past 2 months, my Nokia Lumia 925 with Win 8.1 keeps shutting down spontaneously. This is my third phone in the last 2 months (warranty program keeps sending me replacements) and it shut down for the first time this morning. All 3 have developed the same problem, the phone will shut down spontaneously and the only way to start it up again is a soft reset (Volume down + Power for 15 seconds). I have had a total of 10-15 shutdowns between the 3 phones and this is a conservative estimate.
I am thinking that this has to be a setting or an app that I use (and few others do) that is causing the shutdown since I have only seen a few other similar issues in the forums. Here are some of the basic facts about my situation and some of the actions I have taken:
- I have wiped the phones repeatedly (3 phones wiped a total of 3 or 4 times not including the initial setup of the replacement phones, which is getting really old--really fast).
- I have tried turning off NFC, but that obviously wasn't the issue because NFC was off this morning when it shut off.
- I have tried trimming the screen protector/screen guard I installed as suggested in one of the other forums even though that seemed ridiculous (I think that was a different model phone too, but I gave it a shot)
-I have not noticed any common occurrence such as
--when a certain app is running
--when it is on/off charger,
-- When the battery is full or low (it was 24% this morning).

I've had the phone for a month and the only app I've gotten to consistently work is my text messaging so far, and I'm curious to see if it's just me. My most recent issue is getting music onto the phone and I have tried the ridiculous Windows Phone App (the only use after two hours of trying to get it to work has been multiple repeated restarts of my phone and at one point, I think I got to name my phone though the name I gave it is long gone by now), the OneDrive App for the computer as well, which, in addition to not allowing me to upload any files, it won't even let me download the one thing that somehow made it to the storage.
At this point its a fancy flip phone, so I'm glad that it can still make calls (though getting calls to actually start is pretty spotty on occasion) and send and receive texts. Anyone know of anywhere I can go to get help with this awful excuse for a phone and terrible "apps" for my computer beyond a simple google search?

I, myself, simply plug my phone into USB and transfer media files that way... Without more specific questions it becomes hard to give pointed advice.
In general, as someone who has changed smartphone platforms several times and tried many more as a hobby... I believe a common problem when switching platforms is ingrained habits. Many times users try and make the new device behave as the old one did and they get frustrated when it does not work that way. That may or may not be your issue, I'm just making an observation. Take from it what applies and leave the rest.
Good Luck.

Hello,
I recently got a Nokia Lumia 635 (I think it had Windows 8.1). I had a few questions about my new windows phone.
1. Where can I find out my mobile phone number? I've been told I can find it by clicking on the phone icon and then going into settings, but I don't see it there (I see things like voicemail number).
2. When I click on the magnifying glass to do searching, it says "search web or phone." Is there a way I can change it so that searching is only done within the phone and never on the web?
3. My voicemail number is blank under phone settings. Why is this the case? Shouldn't it be the same as my mobile phone number?
Thank you.

Answer:Nokia Lumia 635 Windows Phone Questions

1. If you go to settings then go over to applications then chick phone you can find your number.
2. If you are on Wp8.1 and your regional and language settings are set to us with your location on you can use Cortana to search your phone to some degree. On WP8.1 Update 1 you can use Cortana in the UK and some other countries to do the same but they are in beta right now. Your only real alternative is to check the site for an app from Microsoft called Files which acts as a file manager.
3. Not really sure why this is blank, maybe someone else can help you with this one or you can check your providers website to help figure out what the number should be.

I'm in the UK, and yeah, apparently the windows phone 8.1 update was meant to have started rolling out from the 24th June. I've got a Nokia Lumia 520, I'm with EE, and my phone hasn't updated yet. Have been tempted to sign on with the developer preview thing but haven't been sure about whether it was worth the risk.
Any help or answers to why I haven't received the update? Cheers!

Answer:My Nokia Lumia 520 hasn't updated to Windows Phone 8.1

Simples... the support lifecycle for WP8.1 started on the 24th of June. Release of the update itself is in the hands of the networks. While you can get 8.1 via the Preview, you won't get the firmware and stuff that comes with the Cyan update until it's released. Cyan also includes 8.1 so if you're not on the Preview you will get 8.1 as well - Preview people will only get the firmware side of the update that enables various cool features in the new OS.

So your phone is turning back on even when it is not plugged in to anything? I know all windows phones will not allow you to keep the phone off if it is plugged in to charge but I have never experienced it doing that any other time.

I was just listening to my music using Nokia Mix Radio when I noticed that the song I was playing sounded different to how it usually sounds. I actually converted this song from YouTube on my PC and copied it onto my phone (my bad!) so I don't understand how the phone just managed to change it. I came to the end of the song when I suddenly heard cheering? I'm so confused! I have played this song on my phone for ages and this has never happened before. I opened Xbox Music and played the song there to see if Nokia Mix Radio was the problem but the same thing happened there; I heard cheering at the end of the song as if I'd converted a live performance of the song and put it onto my phone... Which I definitely did not! I think it has something to do with the update to 8.1 but I'm not entirely sure. Anyone know what's happened here?

Hi Friends,
I use THE SOUND RECORDER app for my career class recordings which are most important in my life ( if gone, career gone thus life also gone )
The sound recorder app & its shortcut(tile) became grey in color and Iam unable to open it.
Even the windows store also showing it cannot be viewed and I wonder whats happening.
I LITERALLY BEG YOU THAT SOMEBODY CAN HELP ME ON THIS -- I HAVE 30 DAYS OF IMPORTANT CLASS RECORDINGS AND THOSE ARE ONLY PLAYED VIA APP.
Regards,
Karthik

Answer:Unable to use THE SOUND RECORDER app from my windows 8.1 nokia 625 lumia phone

Is this the app you're talking about?http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=0jXa8UiD
If so it says you can save it to SD card and that it's M4A which means you can play it on other devices or computers.
I'm going to assume you were saving your files there as you own a 625. If that's the case you should be able to access them via a PC.
There's nothing to suggest this app is no longer available so there's something wrong with your phone. Have you tried a soft reset? (doesn't erase anything)
Soft reset -> volume down and power together. Wait for phone to vibrate. Stop holding and phone will restart.
If that doesn't help you have other issues.

I tried to download Whatsapp but it doesn't support Windows Phone 7. My smartphone is nearly new because it staied unused for years and I don't want to change it. Is there a way to use Whatsapp without changing telephone?

Answer:I have a Nokia Lumia 710 with windows 7: may I swich to an other software guarding the same phone?

you can download the older version of the app from internet. I suspect there is not many site or none at all providing app files to wp7. The os is absolute, it has been years since it was dismantled like wp 8/8.1 . You have to switch to a newer phone in terms of software i mean. You lumia 710 might only be a few months old and a year off unused but overtime the software is left unusable.

When ever i try to install it the phone reboots and does the job and when it comes to migrating data the screen goes black. I did hard reset (holding vol. down and lock for 20 secs) and the system is installed but can't open settings photos and other basic apps. Tryed both fast and slow install. Any idea how to fix the problem and do a clear installation? And what could be the cause of this unusuall problem?

Answer:Can't install windows phone 10 preview on my Nokia lumia 1020

The screen goes blank after the phone reboots, because it is preparing the phone for the restore process, due to the large amount of data that needs to be restored.
You have to leave it there until the process is completed.

After moving all the songs I want on my phone from iTunes to the Windows Phone App, for some reason almost all of them have incorrect names when viewed in the app and in my phone music library (as in "Eiffel 65- Blue (Da Ba Dee).mp3" instead of just "Blue (Da Ba Dee)"). It's not a major thing, but it really bothers me and I'd like to fix it.
So, is there a way that I can change the song names? (and one artist name, but I can live with that)
Thank you very much!

Answer:Change song names in the Windows Phone App? (Nokia Lumia 635)

Use Tag editor. It allows u to edit all details of the song including name,artist,album,release year and even the album art.http://www.windowsphone.com/en-in/st...4-962c747af2cb

Answer:Deleting videos on a Nokia Lumia 1020 Windows 8.1 phone.

The simplest way to delete videos off your phone is to long press on the video and tap delete.
Alternatively you can connect your phone to a PC/Laptop via usb -> navigate to the folder and delete them that way.

In past few days, I witness that many apps have stopped working for Windows Phone. This is the worst thing. Messenger app is no longer working for Windows Phone. Amazon shut down their app on windows phone long ago. Many other apps are showing a message that very soon they will shut down their app on windows phone. What the hell. No one will buy your older windows phone even. It is the complete loss of the windows phone user. Microsoft should say something on this. Even they are not releasing windows 10 build for the windows phone 8.1 users.
:(

Answer:Many apps has stopped working on my Nokia Lumia 625. It has Windows Phone 8.1 OS.

MS should say something, but their actions have made, at least their short term intentions, abundantly clear. It's likely time to move on.

Answer:i forgoted my windows phone nokia lumia 530 microsoft account password

Log into http://account.live.com and follow the steps to reset your password. If you can't get the password back, then just scrap the account and start over. This means that you'll have to perform a hard reset of your phone to associated it with the new account.
If it's your phone's PIN code that you've forgotten, you will need to perform a hard reset to get control of your phone again.

I already happened several times, but today's "update" finally did it. The phone is rolling in a loop, settings wheels, then some progress, then battery empty sign then battery sign with a question mark (note that the battery was full!).
Tried the following:
1) Hard reset using key combo - DID NOT WORK
2) Windows Device Recovery Tool - DID NOT FIND THE PHONE, COULD NOT CONNECT TO IT
The phone keep rebooting in a loop which never stops. None of the methods above worked. The phone is finally dead.
As much as I love Windows Phone, more I hate Microsoft now. In fact, these rubbish builds have been killing my phone, but now finally I cannot recover it any more.
So dear Microsoft, I'm ready to sue you. That's the least I can do. About the rest I will talk to my lawyer. See you soon!

Answer:Windows Phone 10 Build finally killed my NOKIA Lumia 930 Gold Edt.

Hello Windows Expert,
I recently had to hard reset my Lumia 525 which is running on Windows 8 OS. Reset was done successfully. But i see a difference in the Look and Feel after reset. Before reset when I go to app list, I was getting Alphabets A, B, C etc. After reset I am not getting this, its getting very difficult to use now. Why this is so? And any solution for this.
Regards,
Windows Phone User

Answer:Hard Reset of Nokia Lumia 525 (Windows Phone 8)-Where are the app jump lists?

Have you reinstalled all the apps you used prior to the hard reset? If you do not have around 45-50 apps installed, you won't see the jump lists.
I forgot what the exact number of apps is needed for jump lists, since I have over 100 apps on my 920.

I changed the digitizer as it broke and after doing so I had slightly damaged the power/volume camera button strip, so there was a little problem as the on/off button stopped working this was fine initially as it powered up once plugged in, so all fine then about 30 minutes later it was off and very hot at the top/back of the phone and would not power up when plugged in i decided as it was becoming hot to detach the internal battery, on closer inspection I had noticed the on off button strip thing had broke completely so I ordered a new part and replaced etc but the same problem exists
Have i shorted out the ecb or was the digitizer I replaced faulty causing the over heating as where this plugs in is where it becomes hot

Answer:My Nokia Lumia 625 will not turn on, when on charge it heats up very quick at the top of the phone, what's going on with my phone?

How can we know because we where not present during your repair. But a digitizer can not cause overheating so you must have damaged something during your repair.

Does your phone have that too? Im worried that mine might be the only one because I haven't seen a single complaint about it. It's irritating sometimes. I pick the sides with a piece of thin paper to take the dust out. Am I the only one????

Answer:On the Nokia Lumia 630 there is gap around the phone small enough for dust to lodge in, does anyone else's phone have this problem?

That does sound pretty original as an issue.
Make sure the cover is seated properly. You could also try getting a replacement cover online. Search eBay and Amazon for them. It would be a chance to change color as well.

Answer:Why can't I receive photos that are sent to me via a text message on my Lumia Nokia 630?

If it's a photo it'll be sent via MMS, so you need to make sure you've got MMS enabled on your carrier account and the MMS settings on your phone (carrier will supply this info, usually automatically straight to phone).
I would of expected a web link to have been displayed instead to view it via a browser.
Hope this helps.

Had the same problem but finally it's working after turning off McAfee's On-Access Scanner, which scans everything you plug into the computer, and by installing Nokia Care Suite, which installs the "Fuse service" that is used to communicate with the nokia phone via usb. I also installed Lumia Software Recovery even though Microsoft has taken it down (googling can find 3rd party links) but it failed to retrieve information from the server but suddenly Windows Phone Recovery could identify my phone and even made it past the "Reading information from the phone" screen that I had also been stuck on :) I'm downloading the files to downgrade right now so hopefully my phone doesn't brick in the next critical steps.
tl&dr: I turned off McAfee's scanner, installed Nokia Care Suite + Lumia Software Recovery (which doesn't do anything but installs some critical files i think), and suddenly my phone could communicate with my computer again. Windows Phone recovery can now do its job.
