Preferred Solution: Want to buy a Nokia Lumia 535 and Nokia Lumia 435,but I am confused which phone is better?

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: Want to buy a Nokia Lumia 535 and Nokia Lumia 435,but I am confused which phone is better?

It depends on ur need really.
Do u need a large screen, FFC and flash?
Or u just want a compact easy to pocket phone?

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,
i am currently a iPhone 5 uses and my contract expires on the 23rd september so other than jumping on the iPhone 6 bandwagon i was looking at what's out and the nokia lumia 930 interests me a lot - looks polished - looks fast - does what i need it to do.
I know changing to any phone will be strange due to have the iphone since iphone 4 so i expect changes.
my question is from a users perspective...what's it really like? battery performance? just overall what's your opinion? to get or not to get.
Thanks any input will be helpful!

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.

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 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.

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.

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'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?

Answer:Why is my Nokia Lumia with Windows such a terrible phone?

Our community here is generally a great resource for advice from real users. Why not join us?
Microsoft themselves have a lot of help pages and how to's at https://www.windowsphone.com/en-us
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.

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).

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.

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.

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
Al

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.

How do I sync Outlook calendar directly to my Nokia Lumia phone? I am looking for an easy, accurate and reliable option without going through the cloud. I would prefer something wireless, if that's possible. (I'm not on Exchange.)
I did check Microsoft's tech support -- it says to go through Hotmail, Windows Live or Outlook.com. I don't want to go through those services and manual importing isn't an option. Everything I've read says that Microsoft Phone won't directly sync with Outlook on a PC. Seriously?

Answer:Sync Outlook with Nokia Lumia Windows Phone

Go to settings>email+accounts>then manually sync your microsoft account. This should sync your calendar unless you using a dummy account with your phone. My phone syncs with my windows 8 pc (including Calender) with no problem.

Hi All,
I got the Windows Phone 8.1 update yesterday and I started the install. However, it took such a long time and also drained the battery like anything, even while my phone was connected to charger. Now, I am not able to install the update, as the phone is not charging. As soon as it starts charging, it also restarts the install, but after a while, either it drains the battery or gets too much heated that it shuts down. It's always in the same loop and I am not able to use my phone any more neither can I complete the 8.1 update.
I would really appreciate if someone can suggest any resolution to the problem.
Thanks in Advance,
Ash

my nokia Lumia takes brilliant photos(high quality) using Lumia camera but wen I post it on facebook,instagram or make the picture my whatsapp profile pic... it looks different and weird and of low quality.. why?

Answer:Why are my Nokia Lumia pictures on social networks so different from the ones I take on my phone?

Blame FB, Instagram, et al - they're the ones modifying your image. Take FB for example. You upload a 8MP photo, but FB will resize it to their dimensions and change the color profile of your image leaving you with flat colors. It's just the way it is. You can tweak to their specs with some success. Run a search and you'll find a tutorial.

Have you tried recording a video to see if it's the microphone? If that's the case then you need to send it in for repairs. You can't fix a hardware issue with software.
If the mic works with a video then there's a software issue. In that case a hard reset may be in order.

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.
