Question: I have a Nokia Lumia 610. Can I block unwanted calls or unsavory messages on this phone?

I cannot find the CALL + SMS feature on my phone

Preferred Solution: I have a Nokia Lumia 610. Can I block unwanted calls or unsavory messages on this 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.)

Answer: I have a Nokia Lumia 610. Can I block unwanted calls or unsavory messages on this phone?

The feature appears to have not come out for older, WP7 devices.
Your best bet now is to see if your service provider can block calls on their end, before it hits your phone. (because some carriers offer that service)

Answer:How can I block unwanted calls on my Lumia 521 8.1?

To block a call go to settings > call+SMS filter > enable block call+sms.
You can now block call but only if you had a phone call. So you can not add a number which never called you.
If above does not work you have to contact your carrier because they probably disabled this function in your phone.

Answer:How do I block text messages and phone calls from a certain contact?

If you have a Lumia phone, there is a call+sms filter available.Close your doors with Call and SMS filter - Conversations: The Microsoft Devices blog
That site is old, but the data is still relevant.
If you don't have one, your phone may or may not have the feature as it appears to be one that was created by the manufacturer.
I think Huawei models had one.
Scroll through you settings list, if you have one, the option should appear there.

Well, title says it all. I have been getting a ton of spam calls lately, at least 20-30 everyday, so I keep adding those numbers to the 'block number' list. But sometimes I've noticed that even though some numbers have been added to the list, they still get through. I guess this is another bug with WIndows 10 mobile and it's pretty annoying because if you think about it, it is basically failing to do something that's associated with making and receiving calls, the most important feature for a phone. Did anyone else notice this?
Thanks!

I have a Nokia Lumina 520 and ever since I have had it (about 4 weeks), it has acted very strangely at times. It can be lying on my desk and then all of a sudden all of the tiles start shaking as if its in edit mode, then it will start to switch screens or launch an app. Today - and this is no word of a lie - the phone has made two outgoing calls when plugged in charging. I have no idea what is going on. Locking the phone seems to stop the behaviour but I shouldn't have to lock it 24/7. Can these phones be hacked or an app has done this? I now have to keep checking it to make sure it's not doing anything it shouldn't be? Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated. When I bought it was Windows 8 and its now on the dev preview of 8.1 however it has exhibited strangeness on both. Thanks.

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

Check if your proximity sensor is not covered by a screen protector or a clip from your case. (proximity sensor is in the same place as front side camera.
If that does not work do a soft reset. (no data will be lost)
Push both power and Volume down till the phone starts to vibrate. (mat take 10-15 sec)
After it startup check if data and time are still correct.
and see if you still have this problem.

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).

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?

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??!!

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...

A friend has a Nokia touch screen phone, when he tries to access facebook it comes up that the page doesn't have the right authentication certificate and may be harmful to the device. It gives 3 options, one more information, one to go back and one to continue (not recommended) I have tried to continue and it diverts to a BT hotspot web page asking to buy hotspot access. There was 3G access but didn't seem to work, I tired looking for setting etc on the phone that may need changing but couldn't find anything relevant. Unfortunately I don't get on with windows phone so don't have one myself so didn't want to mess with his too much, he said he had gone into car phone warehouse where he purchased it from but they didn't know the answer either,

Answer:Why am I getting error messages when trying to view facebook on my Nokia phone?

Use the facebook app; don't go through the web browser. If that still doesn't work, reinstall the app. If all else fails, you'll probably want to reset the device.

I am worried that because it's an internal battery that cannot be removed, this may pose a problem because the phone has been on display and never turned off for however long it's been in the store. I know techies can remove and replace it but I am not techie and it's not how it was meant to be.
As someone who has had to change out batteries on phones before because they didn't last, and charge them separately when my port broke and so on, I rely on having battery control lol. Is it too much risk buying a demo phone? My dad really wants it but I don't want to buy it and have issues early down the road.
Any info appreciated. Thanks!

Answer:Is it OK to buy a Nokia Lumia 925 Demo Phone?

Personally I wouldn't as screen would have slight scratches and can this screen have screen burn? How many people touched it with e-coli hands EUGH !!! lol but seriously what I would do... Bit cheeky... But buy it... Then return it a week later (say it keeps cutting off every hour... Believe me they won't stand to check) then get a replacement with a brand new one. You didn't hear it here *cough cough*

Out of the three phones in my consideration, I would like to get two of them. All three phones are similarly priced on B&H, so I care more about the daily performance. Both the 1520 and 930 have better specs, but specs don't always translate well in everyday use.
The things I value are screen quality, hardware performance, and camera quality. Does the 20MP Pureview camera make that much of a difference compared to the 10MP variant? Since the 930 does not have removable battery or SD card expansion slot, would that hinder its usability? Does the 930 ever freeze? My Nokia Lumia 635 froze about two times since I got the phone, and I needed to remove the battery to reboot the phone. I don't want that to happen to a phone without a removable battery.
So in summary, which phone is the best value for the price? If you have other suggestions, feel free to share them.

Answer:Which phone is better: Nokia Lumia 1520, 930 or 830?

I love my 1520. It is a great phone and I traded up from a 925 with no regrets.
I assume you are in the US since you are shopping B&H. Note that the International 930 they sell will not get LTE in North America. I don't see anything that recommends 930 above the 1520 except pocketability. Forget the overly dense, overly saturated AMOLED screen. Any HD benefit is lost by not having Glance, IMHO. 1520 beats 930 with battery life, SD slot and larger screen. That last one is subjective, but I really did not have a hard time getting used to the 6" screen. I love it.
The 830 looks to be a good all-around value. I keep debating with myself if I should get this for a backup phone. The only thing slowing it down, so far as I can see, is the Snapdragon 400 cuts out the potential for "Hey Cortana."
If the those 3 were lying on a table (1520, 930, 830) and I was told I could take any two for free - I would absolutely pick the 1520 and the 830.

I ordered this phone online. It looks old and refurbished. How do I know it is not and confirm if I got a valid product? Is there a way to check?

Answer:How do I know I got an original Nokia Lumia 730 phone?

Well, just compare it to video and images of the 730/735. I imagine people would spend their resources creating fakes of much more expensive phones than the 730.
I'd be more worried about receiving an empty box than that.

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
