I tried out the build released around June 16 ... much move functional than a build I tried in April. However, on my 1020 the performance was nearly always horrific. I realize it's not finished yet, and it will get better, but it is so far from being acceptable, I can't imagine recommending this on older hardware.

Answer:Lumia 1020 and Windows Mobile 10

I'm quite pleased with the progress & performance of Build 10147 shown on my Lumia 1020. It seems they've mostly improved on the UI and performance of the main OS. Personally for me, the only issues I've run into is that the new universal apps tend to launch slowly (Store, Cortana, Photos, Music) and a few of the 'Settings' features crash when launched.
You may want to use the Windows Phone Recovery Tool to restore to 8.1 and then update to the latest Build.

I joined the Windows Insider program before Windows Mobile 10 was officially released. MS dropped Lumia 1020 from it's supported devices soon after. So I am stuck on build 1511.
Windows 10 build 1511 works for me but I want to reinstall Windows 10.
Question is, will I be able to get back to Windows 10 mobile build 1511 if I factory reset my device, install the Windows Insider and do the updates? Considering the device is no longer supported by Microsoft.
The device came with Windows 8.1 (or 8.0, can't remember).
Thanks

Answer:Can I Reinstall Windows 10 Mobile Preview? - Lumia 1020

If you factory reset the phone, it will STAY on whatever OS it is currently on.
However, if you use the Windows Device Recovery Tool on your PC, you will be reverted to Windows Phone 8.1 and you'll have a bad time trying to get back.

After updating my pc to windows 10 I decided to try out the OS for my Lumia too. After I installed it I ran straight into my first problem that my internet no longer works, both WiFi and mobile, in fact, WiFi doesn't even turn on! The next problem I have is that the Here Maps and Drive don't work, I select them and they just kick me back to the home screen. I want to know if anyone else has experienced this or knows anything to fix it, I don't want to factory reset because I have important messages that cannot be lost. Thank you in advance for any help.

My current L920 (Rogers, Unlocked, Black) fell and the glass is broken. I bought it from Negri Electronics last year, but it doesn't seem like they have the same model available
I am on the Family Mobile (T-Mobile US MVNO) network and I would like to have a penta-band phone, so I could switch from T-Mobile or AT&T, and of course, I would like it to be unlocked also.
I tried searching on ebay but I was too scared about the unreliable ads that they had (they had listed an L920, as having the 1700 band, but it was clearly labeled ATT phone). Is there a reputable site like Negri that you can recommend?
If the 920 wasn't available or if the price was right, I wanted to get an L1020 that was unlocked, and penta-band. (On a side note, does the L1020 have wireless charging built-in? - i know the ATT doesnt have it built in, but how about the international/canadian version)
If the L1020 doesn't have wireless charging, should I get the 1520 instead?

I usually do my stuff via Amazon and less often eBay, so I can't really say much about actual web stores.
The 1520 is the mother of all Lumia's, in terms of horsepower, but also size, so if you can live with it, pick up the 1520.3 variant (?)

So one day I reset my phone due to my phone slowing down, and it would not turn on.
For info purposes I have a Lumia 640 updated to win 10 (originally 8.1)
After this I put it on the charger, it would load the Microsoft logo. then go to the charging screen with plug icon.
This is odd due to being at 80℅ of battery before I rebooted. Often it'll sit there with no result, sometimes it'll reboot multiple times.
If I remove the charger the phone instantly turns off. This has been going on for 5 days. Yesterday when I plugged the phone in it went back to tiles, but when I removed the battery to put my sim back in the issue came back. It also showed 72℅ charged so can't be the battery, and I don't know how that happened.
Windows recovery tool can't see the device and when I choose the find option the fix won't get to the phone. When I plug my Lumia via USB it reboots over and over and disconnects over and over as my computer keeps making the USB sound. The only time this doesn't happen is if i hold volume up or down when I plug it, sometimes, and that just freezes it on the ms logo. When I continue from there the phone will reboot as the installation is loading.
The issue is clearly not the battery. As it's 70℅ or so, yet Iget the 0 charge icon and the phone won't turn on outside the charger.
I have no clue what the solution to this problem is.

So I've updated my Lumia Icon to Win10 a couple weeks ago and it worked quite fine.
Today I've found my phone at 17% battery charge. Plugged it in and forgot about it for a while. Couple hours after - 12%! Went to the battery saver setting and saw (plugged in, not charging) message next to the battery charge percentage.
Replaced the battery - same problem. Computer sees the data from phone as usual. Tried a different USB cable - same story. Tried to charge it with a wireless charger that worked just fine for me recently - same issue. Did a regular restart, and a couple of soft resets - nothing changed. Not sure what else I can do now. Don't want to do hard reset until it's the absolutely last chance.
Any ideas guys?

I have a problem with Build 10512 on my Lumia 930. I switched to this bulid last weekend and did a reset by going to setting --> system --> about. Afterwards I didn't restore any data and started from scratch. Installed some apps and deleted some as well. Two days ago I got the message from my carrier, that I just used all my mobile data for this month. Due to the fact, that I was using WIFI during most of the time when I was using the phone I was very suppriesed. So I went to data sense and noticed that there was an entry "unistalled app" which had a high data usage. As I was looking at data sense during the day I just noticed, that the amount of data was growing.
Because I didn't know which apps this could be I did another reseted yesterday by doing the same steps mentioned above. This time I started from scratch again but didn't deleted any app. However today I again find the entry "uninstalled app" in data sense, which again is still unsing data (about 100 MB during the day, no WIFI). Has anybody an idea what this is and how I can stop this?

Answer:I uninstalled app mobile data usage Mobile Preview Build 10512 Lumia 930

I just noticed that too in my Data-sense. It has only used 116 Mb in about a week though, so I'm not too concerned about it yet.

A hard reset fixes most of these issues after an update. You'll just have to set up your phone again. Make sure you do a back-up first then you'll have a current restore point.

anyone has suggestion for a good and faster charger?
Thanks

Answer:Is it harmful for phone or battery if I use the original charger of lumia 640 4 charging lumia 535?

Using a charger with more mA capabilities will assist your phone in charging faster. There are times that it can also reduce your overall battery life, which shouldn't be a problem if you plan on replacing the phone in 2 years.
There are smart chargers which will detect what your phone can handle and deliver the most optimal charging current for your device. I find for my Lumia 640, I can get a much faster and a safe charge as high as 1200mA. My 520 came with the lower mA as well, but it charged fine with the 750mA charger with no ill effects that I am aware of.

Soft reset includes resetting the date and time, so that is normal.
For your charging issue. Is your phone really not charging or won't it just power up? The phone needs a minimum charge for it to power up, so when the battery gets fully drained (especially immediately after a few restarts/resets) it is expected that the phone won't start up. Just leave it plugged in to a charger for around 30 minutes and try to power it up again.
If this still doesn't work, then the battery might have been damaged especially if it has been drained completely repeatedly. In this case, the battery needs to be replaced.

Originally Posted by sameersaab I read other people had an issue with the 1020 shutting off during charges. Is there a way I can get a replacement? Will MSFT stores fix the issue? That depends on the policy of either the store you bought it from or the accredited service center your intend to bring your phone to. Product replacement periods are much shorter than warranty periods for repair and service. If your phone is still covered, take it to the store or service center - no matter what they must find a way to fix that issue (presuming that you did not drop your phone or open the body assembly in any way).

Answer:Lumia 1020 suddenly dead

Hi, I'm not sure how you checked the battery, as it is likely to be at fault.
You mention doing a soft / hard reset and using the Recovery tool, but as the phone is 'dead' you haven't been able to perform those procedures.
Can you try leaving the phone on charge for a couple of hours and then try a soft reset with the charger connected.
Then report back?

Wireless charger DT-903 on Lumia 930 running Windows 10 Mobile.
On the previous versions of windows 8.1 you could simply find the wireless charger in the devices hub and configure how it will notify you if you have a missed call or text message.
Now on the Windows 10 mobile I can't find any option to configure the wireless chager even though it is connected through bluetooth with the phone. The tap to pair using NFC works on it. If you have NFC on, and tap the phone against the charger it automatically connects to it through BT.

I have dropped it before and nothing ever happened but now the screen is black as in off. I can still hear notification sounds and the back arrow, windows and search keys light up. So the phone seems to work but not screen. Tried to reset but still nothing.
What should I do?
1- Repair: Can the screen be repaired? If so how much? online it seems hit or miss 100$-200$. Is it worth it? Plus new flag ships expected later this summer
2- Upgrade to a current Lumia 830, 640XL, 1520, 930 or find a deal on a 1020?Worth it? I love my 1020 camera, will I be disappointed with the current batch of windows phones cameras?
3- Do I simply give-in and go back to iPhone? My work gave me one but I hate it lol

Answer:1020 Screen is dead... Options? Will I be disappointed with the cameras on other Lumia?

When my 1020 busted a couple months ago I decided to bite the bullet and wait till the new flagship.
To ME, it was not worth shelling out to repair It or go get a new one or a 930 or something
Where I'm from, we have to buy phones outright. Definitely. Not worth it.
I bought a BLU win HD for 150us unlocked and I've been using it since. It's a great phone and it's tough as hell. It has fallen so many times all over the place from all different heights face down on the screen and it's still going strong.
it's going to hold me out until the next flagship is released which I am going to purchase

Is it wise to let a phone battery run down completely before charging it again, or can you charge, say, everyday?I wouldn't normally ask this question but after what happened with my laptop battery I'm a bit weary (for those who don't know, I kept charging it up when it hadn't drained completely and it's now no good unless it's constantly on charge!)Thanks :)

Answer:Mobile Phone Charging

I only plug my charger in when the phone dies completely or gets on my wick, whinging, beeping 'low-battery-alarm'. You tend to know when it's going to need a charge when you get used to it and plan ahead, my battery lasts 3 days, on the third day it starts to whine and gets plugged in overnight.

Answer:Mobile Battery Charging While using

the battery on a modrn mobile is charged via the 5v USB you can't alter that.
if it s plugged in while being used it will charge much slower
It does not hurt the phone to be on charge while being used.

windows nokia lumia mobile is charging very slow even with original charger

Answer:Why is my mobile charging very slow?

We need more details:
What is the exact phone model that you're using?
How slow is "slow"? How many % per hour or per minute?
The most common power drainers are the screen and the mobile data antenna. If any of these two are active while charging your phone, charging would definitely be slower than when the phone is left idle.
The screen is active when you can see something on it (obviously) aside from Glance screen.
The mobile data antenna is active when you're downloading something, browsing, or if the signal quality is poor.
Other common causes of battery drain (even while charging) include: using the phone while charging (browsing, playing games, reading, taking photos, etc.), background downloading of updates, leaving the camera active - make sure none of these are active while charging your phone.

I have Lumia 950. For charging I want use original charger from the box ( it's working ) and also Original Samsung's micro usb charger + reduction to usb-c. It's strange, that charging will not start. Is there any restiction from MS side for only original chargers ?
Thank you
Alex

Answer:Lumia 950 not charging, only original charger works

There are some bad chargers out there , like the oneplus cables which are not made to specification. but you need to make sure you're getting the right charge it requires. But you need a usb-c cable can't use micro. Even if you convert, it's incapable of more than 5volt.

What I suspect is coming next.... (bear with me this might be a bit long)
I'm going to engage in some speculation here but what do we know....
1. MS is rewriting the Windows OS to run on many form factors (Andromeda)
2. MS is also working to have Windows run on ARM
3. The role of the Surface Brand is NOT to make money but to make hero devices that show what's possible.
4. Panos Panay is fond of saying that Surface's role is to "create new categories"
5. Satya Nadella has more than once made reference to an upcoming "ultimate mobile device" (note he did NOT say "phone")
6. No software company can survive long term without a mobile strategy.
With all of the above it was clear that Windows Mobile was a dead OS walking. I would say the fact that they are now publicly saying so is a potential indicator that Andromeda is almost ready for showtime. It couldn't get the apps/developers/numbers. I think it's a kick__ OS but economics are reality.
But....
If you have Andromeda, you don't need a separate Mobile OS. So why waste time on it.
If you have a PC that's running Windows 10 on ARM and is connected to the LTE cell network, how difficult is it to add phone capabilities to it?
Surface didn't get traction until it was positioned as the "laptop that can replace your tablet". It's main selling point is that you can use real software on it and not Apps. Remember all the people who sneered at the idea of a 2 in 1?
I think what we are going to see is more "Pocket PC" than Surface Phon... Read more

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 would like that iPod Touch to be able to stream Spotify and use my 950XL's hotspot for the Internet connection. Is this possible?

The 830 is a phone that I've wanted for awhile. Given that new phones are coming out, dishing out money for a flagship is too much. I have AT&T now but will be switching to t-mobile. Which one of the 830s needs to be purchased so that I can seamlessly change from one carrier to the other without losing LTE if possible? I apologize if this question has already been asked but I've been searching for days and cannot get a straight answer.

Answer:Which lumia 830 will work on both AT&T LTE AND T-mobile LTE?

Do you have the AT&T variant of 830? If you do, you have to unlock that one first before using it on t-mobile, but it looks like you can use it on T-mobile according to their website.
If you are looking to buy an unlocked device altogether, I believe it should if you buy one from bhphotovideo.com since comments have said that they have the bands that work with both AT&T and T-mobile. Nokia Lumia 830 RM-985 16GB Smartphone A00021288 B&H Photo Video

When you bring an unlocked Lumia phone to T-Mobile, you cannot use T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling. (T-Mobile branded phones come with unique software required for T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling.) Many users believe that Windows 10 Phone would solve this problem, because Windows 10 Phone contains a Wi-Fi Calling app.
The Lumia 650 comes with Windows 10 Phone preinstalled.
So the question is, if you bring an unlocked Lumia 650 (because at this writing there is no T-Mobile version of the 650) to T-Mobile, will Wi-Fi Calling work?
(Related question: If it does work, is there any special set-up required on T-Mobile to "activate" it?)
Thanks!

Answer:Does the Lumia 650 do T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling?

Nope, it wouldn't work. There are only a few unlocked phones that support WiFi calling, but none of those are Windows Phone/Mobile.

All Lumias should get W10, as far as we know. No one knows about the battery power with W10, however the 830 is more future-proof (logically, because its newer). Please remove your email, it is not good practice to post an email address in a public forum.

I had an 810 as my first smartphone in 2012. That was my first experience with windows phone. Have liked the OS since.
It's a shame the NL 810 was discontinued after only 4 or 5 months. Windows 8 was such a smooth system with that phone. Loved it. Removable battery and back cover. That was such a solid phone.
Then the 925 came out next and got that, but as nice as the 925 was; the 810 was much smoother I thought. Everything just flowed with that OS. I'm a driver so I really made lots of use with the HERE drive navigation.
Anyway here we are in 2016 and we have windows phones with removable covers and and batteries again. Prefer this set-up as we can always pop in a replacement battery if the need arises.
Anybody else out there liked L810. ? What a shame it was EOL'd so soon.
