Preferred Solution: Why does my Nokia Lumia 520 keep resetting when I open apps/messages/contacts?

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: Why does my Nokia Lumia 520 keep resetting when I open apps/messages/contacts?

Check if a soft reset will help.http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/ho...start-my-phone
If that does not help I would recommend a factory restore.
Or use the Lumia software recovery tool.http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=oLnMQO3H

I'm using a nokia lumia 720 & it was working perfectly. but since from yesterday i have noted that there's some sound (more like a buzzing sound) coming out from my rear phone only when i open certain apps (eg: whatsapp / nokia camera). but in idle mode or using IE, Music player. device works normally without any issue?
Can some one please let me will this be a big problem in future? or is it fine.....

Answer:What is this buzzing sound coming from my Nokia Lumia 720 when I open some apps?

Try a reboot, then a soft reset before attempting other fixes.
This is abnormal behavior, in any case.
(It may have something to do with your camera, too. Try opening other apps that use the camera in any way or form.)

I did a hard reset to check whether or not the above stated problem would be fixed but in vain . The problem at hand here is that apps such as WhatsApp , all lumia apps , newly downloaded apps off of the store, even some settings like copy contacts and messages to SD card, backup, motion data etc. Even some native apps like news feed , pic art , weather, one drive etc. Apps that work are MS exchange , calendar , contacts , alarm etc. The symptom is the app keeps returning to the start screen ( home) .

Hi
My L1020 suddenly stopped working. Currently it is as if it is turned off. When I plug it into the wall nothing happens. When I plugged it into my computer the home button lit up (no flashing) for about 1 minute before turning off. It doesn't seem to do that anymore. I have tried soft resetting it multiple times but nothing happens. I tried the Recovery Tool but it doesn't recognise my phone and tells me to soft reset it. I would really rather not return it as I ordered it online and am running the developer preview. Any suggestions?

Answer:Nokia Lumia 1020 not turning on / soft resetting

Run the Nokia Software Recovery Tool and when you get the screen with: plug in your phone, there is also a message that says something like this: My phone does not start up or respond. Click that one and it should restore from there

How do I transfere my Contacts from the phone to the SIM-Cart on Nokia Lumia 610?

Answer:Contacts on Nokia Lumia 610

I'm not sure you can do that. I know you could probably import from the SIM, but I don't think you can export it.
Your contacts should be synced with your MS account (people.live.com) so if you're trying to move to another phone you can sign into your MS account on that phone.

If your aim is just to get your contacts on your samsung phone, just add a new Microsoft exchange server account (the one microsoft account you are using on your Lumia) on your Samsung phone, turn sync and internet connection ON...and there you go...all your contacts appear in your samsung phone.

I know this started happening a while ago but am now just getting to the point of figuring out if it can be fixed.
From my searches online I see that other people have had similar problems but didn't find any resolutions.
Here's an example of what's happening.
This morning I updated the address of a contact. Saved the address update. Then saved the contact information. Clicked on the button to go to the main window. Clicked on the contact tile. That specific contact no longer is displayed. I have Contacts set to display all (ie. not filtered).
I re-entered that contact with the new information.
The only thing that it syncs with is outlook.com.
I looked at my contacts in outlook.com there are now 2 contacts for that same person.
Any ideas how I can fix the problem?
Thanks

My daughter downloaded cortana on her lumia 635 the phone has somehow found an old microsoft account and we are unable to change the email address to her current one. since then she has lost all her contacts and photos. I plugged phone into computer and can access the photos so they are still on the phone but not accessible on the actual phone can't access the contacts on computer though.

Answer:Why am I unable to access contacts or photos on my Nokia Lumia 635?

Find out the whole story. You can not just download Cortana. It is part of an update.
Cortana will not activate on a child's account if she is under 13. May be the reason the account was changed.
Copy the media you want to save to the PC and reset the phone, recover using her account.

Answer:text message contacts not working from IOS nokia lumia 639

Did you turn off imessage on your iPhone 5? I'm betting the contacts you are having issues with are iPhones. Try turning off imessage on the iPhone. If that doesn't work you might have to make some changes to your Apple account. And if that doesn't work. Have your friends make sure they do not have your phone # setup as an iPhone. I know this because one of my friend has went thru this issue.. imessage is a pain in the **** when going to a different OS.

Bought AT&T version of Lumia 950 from MS store on line. Took it to AT&T local store and they did the account transfer work. On AT&T website, they indicated that a "transfer" app could be downloaded to the old and new phones. The download for the old phone(920) worked fine. However, download for the new phone(950) would not complete. So, I tried the alternate method of getting the transfer app. This involved texting "transfer" to 6565. This procedure informed me that the transfer program did not support the new phone. Any ideas on how to get this data transferred?

Answer:Having trouble transferring contacts and data from Nokia 920 to Lumia 950

Contacts are normally saved to your Microsoft account. So when you sign into the new phone using the same Microsoft account, contacts should be synced.
As for photos, SMS and apps, to settings and backup them. Then on your new phone just restore from the backup.

my phone will not recognize my 32 sd card, was told to reset and it will work

Answer:If I reset my Nokia Lumia so my sd card will work, will I lose my phone contacts?

You must check first if your Lumia device is compatible with 32GB cards - some older ones are not.
Then, if you have your phone contacts synchronized and backed up to your Microsoft account, then you should be able to restore them back after resetting your phone - since resetting your phone will erase everything from it (including contacts). To check this, login to your people.live.com account and see if your contacts are listed there.

Answer:Where do downloaded apps go on my Nokia Lumia 630?

Have you tried going to windowsphone.com on a pc and reinstalling through your purchase history?
Weird one though, unless there are compatibility issues, but I guess you wouldn't have been able to download in the first place.

They are downloaded automatically via your Onedrive once you confirmed your MS account via security check (you can use a pc and your personal hotmail for getting it)

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).

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??!!

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?

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...

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 got a Nokia Lumia 920 (behind the times I know) and it worked great until I installed the latest wp 8.1 update. Directly after the update the first thing I tried was the camera,,, it loaded for a second then a message appeared. SOMETHING WENT WRONG cannot load camera. No camera apps work at all! Brand new phone, 1st day of use. I tried everything, hard reset, soft reset, letting the battery completely die (heard that worked for someone), resetting camera in settings, re-flashed the firmware with the Lumia recovery tool... you name it I have tried it. Any suggestions?

I upgraded two days ago and would like to revert back. I want to keep my contacts and text messages.
Before upgrading, I downloaded the Microsoft SMS & Contact Backup. I backed content up to my SD card. I also had the backup functions checked on the device options.
After upgrading to Win 10, I no longer see the SMS & Contact Backup.
How should I proceed?
Thanks!

Answer:How do I restore my Lumia 1520 back to 8.1 from 10.0 without losing contacts and text messages?

Open the messaging app, tap ... and then tap settings. Make sure that message backup is turned on and also for messages to be synced across devices. If you can, I would wait a day for it to backup all of your messages. The messages one is a separate setting from regular device backup!
Your contacts are in the cloud, so they should all appear when you downgrade. To check this, log into your Microsoft account on a PC to make sure that all of your contacts are there.
