Question: Is Nokia Lumia 520 SDHC compatible?

I just bought San disk's SDHC class 10 memory card (8gb) for my Lumia 520? Now I'm having second thoughts about it. I would like to know if SDHC works fine in this device.

Preferred Solution: Is Nokia Lumia 520 SDHC compatible?

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Is Nokia Lumia 520 SDHC compatible?

Yes it does as long as it is a micro SD.
Actual cards from 4 to 32GB are called SDHC.
Even a SDXC works. (larger then 32G) works without a problem.

Lumia 535: Can I expand using Nokia MU44 Micro SDHC Card 16GB

Answer:Is Nokia MU44 Micro SDHC Card 16GB compatible with Lumia 535?

Yes but be aware that this is only class 4 so some lagging will/can happen.
Furthermore its already an old card which had a 5 years warranty when sold.
But yes if you have it you can use it and judge by yourself if the lagging is acceptable for you.

It says it's for Android devices (but I didn't see that until after I bought it). Will it work with Windows OS?

Answer:Sony make.believe Micro SDHC compatible with Lumia 640?

That's because Sony only makes Android devices, and they are trying to sell their own products. iPhone doesn't use SD.
MicroSDHC is an industry standard, pretty much. If it works in one, it should work in everything that supports microSDHC.

I want to buy an unlocked Windows Phone and use it on the Straight Talk service. I've got some extra cash on hand and would rather spend 300-600 on a phone and then save on my monthly bill. I've always wanted a Windows Phone and this is the one I want. It's specs are perfect for me, it's recent and available on Amazon. Or at least it is here:
amazon .com/Nokia-International-Version-Warranty-Unlocked/dp/B00LND0AL2%3Fpsc%3D1%26SubscriptionId%3DAKIAJKKTJAC33DYSAVBQ%26tag%3Dgdgt0c20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3DB00LND0AL2
or here:
amazon .com/RM-1045-BRIGHT-FACTORY-UNLOCKED-SIMFREE/dp/B00LVT0ILK/ref=pd_cp_cps_0
So, if I go ahead and buy one of these, will it work out? Straight Talk has a website feature where you can plug in the device ID and see if it's compatible, but of course I would have to buy it first-and I'd like to know before I drop four hundred on a phone. If not Straight Talk, where else could I use this Lumia 930? I don't want a contract...

Answer:Is the Nokia Lumia 930 compatible with Straight Talk?

An unlocked 930 could be used on AT&T or T-Mobile, though with limited speeds (I think 4G or 3G, respectively, though don't take that as gospel).

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.

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).

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

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.

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..

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 )

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?

Nowhere in the documentation, web site is any info about what kind of controller and hence what size SD cards this model is supporting.Even Lenovo tech support doesn't know that info!I am really hesitant to buy a SDXC card of +32GB only to find out it supports on SDHC cards, thus limited to 32GB... thanks for any useful info, Ralf

Answer:What kind of SD card controller is in a Lenovo IdeaPad 120S-11AIP? SDHC or SDXC compatible?

Hi ITWorxLA,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
As per system overview :
IO port: Memory card slot (SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC)
Platform specification:
One microSD Card slot, supports up to 2TB
Usually there would be stickers on the box or laptop to indicate the format it also supports.
You can try to find/borrow  a spare 32GB SDXC to test first before purchase.
Hope this helps answer your query.

Indeed and nobody except Microsoft and carriers know when this is going to happen. So you just need to wait till it is made available.

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? :(

I am looking at Camera apps and came across the Lumia Camera App. I tried to download this but got the following message "This app is not compatible with ths device" which is odd because it's a Lumia phone. What's going on?

Answer:Why is Lumia Camera app not compatible to the Lumia 950 mobile?

Lumia Camera is only available for phones that shipped with Windows Phone 8.1. Either way, you're not missing anything since that app just redirects to the Microsoft Camera, since they want you to use that instead.

I got an 8gb micro sdHC card filled up using the adapter, with music, which plays fine.

Before I received this cheap us>microSD adapter I asked the seller if it read HC cards. They said no. It's just a cheap chinese adapter on ebay so there isn't much info on it at all. It's write up didn't say anything about HC capabilities.

Like I mentioned, I was able to use it to load up an 8gb sdHC card.

Does this mean that it will probably also work with a 32gb sdHC card? Is there a size limit that the 8gb card didn't exceed?

If yes, I'd like to buy more now because I don't think these will hold up to much use.


Answer:Can My Usb>microsd Adapter Read Sdhc If It Fills An 8gb Sdhc Card? Seller Says It Won't.

I found the same item elsewhere on ebay which mentions that it recognizes up to 32gb, which is what I needed.

So....I suppose there are quite a few adapters out there labelled only SD but will in fact read up to at least 32 SDHC cards.

I think going over 32gb cards might require additional capabilities.

First of all Hi Everybody,
Its been 1 month usage of lumia 730 and this phone is amazing. Before i used lumia 610 for 2 yrs+. I like only Lumia series so brought this one which has more RAM, option for SD card and bigger display.
But I have f/g issues. Please can anyone give me solutions for it ?
1. Double Tap always doesn't work, sometimes I need to use power button. Its not a big problem but still I really want to use double tap all the time. If I keep my phone ideal for 10 mins and double tap it does't work.
2. There is no proper music app nor video app, I have copied 100 songs from pc into my phone. Later I have changed the name of few songs but still in xbox music it shows the old name of the song . I went into files section and saw the name of the song & there I found updated name of the song but not in xbox music.
3. If I play heavy games like brother in arms, FIFA 05, assassins creed for 10 mins the phone is getting heated up. if play more than 15 mins then whole phone is like burning. Is it common problem for everyone ? Previously when i used lumia 610 I never this problem, I used to play hrs in 610.

Answer:Does anyone own Nokia Lumia 620?

1) No it doesn't lag much.
2) FFC is just 0.3 mp so don't expect too much. Its decent when in good lighting conditions.
3) The only problem is terrible battery life and the heating up when using cellular data but that can be attributed to pfd.
4) Yes it is upgradable to WP10 just like all WP8 Lumias.

I can not decide between the Blu Jr Win and the Lumia 822. Could you help? I do not have much money, and I need to know what phone should buy.
Both phones cost almost the same. The difference is that the Blu Jr Win includes a protective case, adhesives for screen and headphones. While the Nokia lumia 822 does not include the above.
I had thought the lumia 822, that is unlocked and can use it on GSM. I'm from Venezuela and my budget is limited. I need a phone that costs less than $ 100, for that reason I did not take into account the Lumia 820.

Answer:Should I get the Blu Jr Win or Nokia Lumia 822?

Which network are you going to use it on? If Verizon, then Lumia 822 is the way to go; the Blu Jr. Win won't work on Verizon's network at all.
If not Verizon, then the Blu Jr. The 822 is technically unlocked, but you'd be missing out on some key features (video text messaging being the biggest one; no LTE, but if the point of comparison is a Blu Jr, that doesn't have LTE either). Although, the Blu doesn't have 1 GB of RAM, which can be limiting.
What exactly is your budget, and where are you shopping from? Nokia Lumia 820 8GB Unlocked GSM 4G LTE Windows 8 Cell Phone - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories This unlocked 820 might be a live option; it has the same features as the 822 (though less storage).
Also, Lumia 635s are cheap and plentiful, if you don't mind the low RAM and lack of front camera.

I've been a Windows Phone user for a long time, and I love it.
So now I want my gf to switch to Windows Phone! So that's why I have decided that I'll give her a Windows Phone on her birthday.
The thing is I can't decide between Nokia Lumia 820 and 920. While 930 is also a decent option I decided not to go overboard, as she is new to WP.
So what do you guys suggest? While Lumia 920 has better camera it does not have SD Card slot, which is a bummer. My gf downloads lots of movies/music (She filled up iPhone 4s 64 GB... Don't ask me how). On the other hand she loves to takes pic so defiantly she would love a better camera.
What do you guys suggest? Is 32 GB enough? I personally own a 1520 so no storage issues for me.

Answer:Nokia Lumia 820 or 920?

if she has no problem switching media in and out occasionally using the sync program 32 GB should be fine.
The 920 is way better than the 820 in terms of battery life, screen quality, camera quality, and potentially support (I think it'll be supported better than 820)
