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.)

Since updating my phone cannot access the internet emails etc, giff gaff when checked has no faults or service issues. All was fine before the update now unable to use my phone, except for calls and texts, at all unless can connect to wireless. Has turned my phone useless. My husband has the galaxy s5 and everything all ok on his phone, daughter has iPhone, again, all ok, rest of my family with guff gaff, all no issues. So why since the update can I not use mobile data, extremely annoyed. Cannot get 4g in most of areas I use my phone, if that is relevant but did all work fine on 3g previously. Extremely annoyed!

Answer:nokia 1020 no mobile internet at all since update

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.

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.

Hi everyone. I am sure this topic must have been beat to death already but I'm afraid I was unable to find any definitive answers on the various forums I lurked on - including this one.
My question is, does the Lumia 1520.3 work flawlessly with T-Mobile in every and all uses?
My current (and broken, hence the tentative 1520.3 purchase) Lumia 920 is unlocked. I bought it from Amazon when it came out - only to realize that it had been unlocked with a code when it started its life as an AT&T phone first. As such, I was told I never really experienced 4G LTE (or the counterpart to T-Mobile).
The worst part was, I could never send multimedia messages, or receive them. I couldn't read group text messages, open pictures, voice recordings, etc. I couldn't send any out either.
If the Lumia 1520.3 can indeed send/receive multimedia messages then I'm sold. I was told it already has the capability to actually support 4G LTE so that's not a worry for me.
Thanks!
-Jon

Answer:Does the Nokia Lumia 1520.3 RM-938 Work 100% With T-Mobile?

Come on! With all the sales in the U.S., there's no way someone hasn't tried the 1520.3 with T-Mobile's network yet. And unless the views are bots or fakes, I'm sure someone must have something relevant to share.

Thank you for assisting here. I've had the Nokia Lumia 1020 US Version for many years now, it works even with a cracked screen but I love the features so much so I purchased another Nokia Lumia 1020 (exact specs). Since ATT no longer carries the phone they cannot assist in the transfer.
How do I (besides backing up on the SIM card) transfer all data (texts, contacts, photos) to my new Nokia 1020. Seems like it would be easy I've tried many basics and followed the transfer data apps but nothing seems to be working. Help please. thanks :)

It's incredibly long( you need to take 4 separate pictures), yet the width is only 1/10th of the overall length!
When compared to competitor panaromas, its like three separate pictures, but the actual width is much thicker.
I'm trying to have high resolution pics uploaded on fb, and its such a bother trying to upload these panorama shots that just end up looking tiny if I follow this rule by facebook:
/help/266520536764594
I have to manually edit ALL nokia pictures to 2048 for the largest single dimension on gimp before uploading on facebook.. But as soon as I do that(edit on gimp) for the length of a 9622X1094 panoramic picture, the width ends up even tinier, and it doesn't look great.. what would I do in this situation? This is my only real issue with the app.

Answer:Nokia Lumia 1020 windows 8.1 update?

You may need to downgrade to WP8 in order to get the official WP8.1 + Cyan. For now, DP users can't install Cyan for the Bitlocker (Encryption feature) problem... so you can wait until MS relaunch the Cyan update for DP users (Will take a time) or you can downgrade to WP8 and get the WP8.1 offcial.

Ok so basically I just bought a 1020 from the Microsoft store in canada unlocked. I had a 920 from rogers, so I put that sim in the 1020. I tried updating to cyan and 8.1 but it can't find anything. I've checked everywhere and I am 100% sure that it is available for the 1020 for rogers, so I just wanted to know if unlocked phones get updated after carrier locked phones, and if so, is there any site that shows if and when they will be released, like they have for carriers. (I don't want to do the dev preview on this phone, I have my 920 to test out new stuff)

Answer:nokia lumia 1020 cyan update in canada

I have an unlocked 1020.
Was using the 8.1 Developer Preview for some time (no Cyan). Decided today to remove it today using the 'Nokia Software Recovery Tool'.
Expected this would take me back to Phone 8, so I could get the update at some point. But to my surprise it upgraded me to 8.1, with cyan (ver 3051.50009.1424.0000). So I guess this may be a manual update route, though you really are wiping your phone, which is a bit nerve racking.
Backup allowed me to restore just about everything (apps included, also adding a few Nokia ones I didn't want) but my photos did not seem to sync back with phone even though I see them in onedrive (not sure what is up with that yet).

The Nokia Cyan update is not yet available on the phone. The availability tracker for North America doesn't say anything about an unlocked 925.

Question: Nokia 1020 2014?

Hey I was just wondering when the release date for the next generation of the 1020 will come out? I want to buy one, but its already 1 year old, and I think I can wait (but not for too long :p)

Answer:Nokia 1020 2014?

There is no word on a 1030.
Nope, zip.
I'd say Nokia's device turnover is longer than 1 year (they have the rest of the lineup to update, the 930 is just rolling out, the 920 came out 2012) as of now so you're probably going to be fine springing for the 1020 now.
However, while not a next gen 1020, there's still rumblings of another flagship in time for this holiday season.
I wouldn't expect a "1030" until next year, but this is all my conjecture, I don't have any insider info, so I could end up being completely wrong.

Hi everyone. I know there has been a lot of fuss about which phone should someone buy, either the Lumia 1020 or the Lumia 930. Well in my case I have a Xperia ZL. It's a great phone. Everything is top-notch except for the terrible camera. And that's a mayor problem. I take a lot of pictures specially at night and they are really a disaster with this phone.
My question is, should I buy the 1020 or the 930? Truly the 1020's camera is a wonderful, I have always wanted to have a phone with Xenon Flash. The thing is, my current phone is a Quad-Core and speed has never been my concern. I am afraid that if a buy the 1020, I would take a step back in terms of speed and updates, specially since the new Denim update doesn't come with all the improvements for the 1020.
So, what are your suggestions?
Thanks in advance!!

Answer:Xperia ZL, Nokia 1020 or 930

Well if the camera on your phone is your major concern, then either the 1020 or 930 will satisfy your desires. The 1020 is the best camera phone around, but you're right to think about updates. With the 930 being the newer phone so expect updates sooner with that phone.

Hi all,
I received my most recent WP8.1 update (OS Version 8.10.14147.180) about 2 weeks ago, until this morning I have had no issues with it - I successfully took photos after the update no worries. Today (after a full day of sightseeing whilst on holidays no less!) I've discovered that the phone will not save any photos. I have tried Microsoft Camera App as well as the Nokia Pro App, both seem to function perfectly, they 'take' the photo, and then say 'saving'. Then nothing. No saved image in my camera roll, nothing uploaded to OneDrive. I have connected to a PC to try and find images hidden somewhere else with no luck. I have tried a camera reset and soft reset also with no luck. I'm on holiday so hesitant to try a hard reset, wondering if anyone else is experiencing a similar issue or can give me any advice?

Welcome to Windows Central.
Take your phone to a service center and have them diagnose the problem - it sounds like a dead battery issue, but it could be more (the service center should be able to tell you exactly what's wrong with your phone).

Hey guys. I'm trying to developer unlock my Nokia 1020, which is on Windows 8.1 (running Lumia Cyan).
I have no luck getting my PC to recognize the phone. I have tried multiple USBs on multiple computers and none will recognize the phone. I have rebooted the phone while connected to USB. It has not been able to connect once.
It will, however, charge using any of the USBs. I cannot pinpoint what the issue is. I have spent hours trying every possible solution and nothing has worked for me so far.
Any suggestions?

Answer:Why won't my Nokia 1020 show up on my computer?

Ok here is a fix which can actually work.The problem with your computer is that it doesn't recognise your Lumia device which can be due to various reasons such as the correct drivers for your device not installed! Or drivers that are installed are corrupted .FIX : open Device manager in your PC/Laptop >View menu>Show hidden devices>Universal serial bus devices.Now you should see your phone litsted when you click this option.

I was wondering if the nokia 1520 is still a good buy? It has been out for some time so is it still a good phone to buy or should I go for an other windows phone?

Answer:Is the Nokia 1520 still a good buy?

Depends on many things. First off would be, if you're comfortable with the size of this beast. 6" is something that shouldn't be underestimated. I for one am having rather huge hands, so its size is a pro or me. But this might quickly turn into a con, if your hands are considerable smaller than mine. Next thing you should be aware off is, that due its size, the risk of breaking/cracking the screen is higher than on smaller devices. Other than that, I couldn't think of anything that makes the 1520 not a great buy. Especially since you should be able to get it kinda cheap now.
The only other device that has the same hardware specs is the 930, which is said to have a slightly better looking display than the 1520. I've never used one, so I can't tell. What I can tell you though is, that the display of the 1520 is gorgeous.

Question: Nokia 1520 Brick ?

Hi,
today I wanted to recover my Lumia 1520 from 8.1 developer prev. to WP 8.0 via the Nokia Software Recovery Tool.
After the download of the WP OS the Software started to apply the downloaded Image to the phone.
After 1% I got the message that an error appeared. From this time on, I am not able to turn on the phone. I also tried a hard reset, but nothing changed. When I connect the phone to my Notebook it just recognizes an unknown device. The Nokia Software does not recognize the phone.
Does anybody have an idear ?

Answer:Nokia 1520 Brick ?

Open the tool and click on "my phone can't/won't start" and follow the instructions. That option doesn't really care what state the phone's in, it will do its business even if it's fully functional.

Hi all,
I have recently bought a 1520 (a HK variant with GBIE firmware) and on inserting a giffgaff sim I can only access 3g/4g (there is no 4g in my area so it shifts to 2g then back to 3g, 3g signal isn't great).
Does anyone know the best way to enable access to 2g in the settings, if this is going to be changed in denim or if it is best to change the firmware version?

I am not getting LTE; This is not a big deal for me since HSPA+ internet speed is fast enough to get what I need done. I would like to get recommendation as to which ROM (Country Variant) is better suited for use in the US. I already know the whole process of unbranding (Flashing Lumia phones).

The Microsoft Account associated with the OneDrive App in your phone should be the same account associated with the OneDrive App/Software in your PC.

Answer:Nokia 1020 will NOT connect to computer no matter what

I feel your pain.
In the old days of Nokia and Symbian, phone to PC connections were rock solid. Now, not so much. Two issues I 've had are:
1. Not recognizing the phone is attached.
2. Data transfers (music files) stopping.
IIRC, I got resolution on #1 by uninstalling the WP PC program, and then reinstalling it. I am able to overcome #2 on my 810 by removing the SD card and plugging it directly into my PC at an appropriate port. Unfortunately, my new 925 can't do that, and sure enough, same old problem arise.
Don't know if this is helpful, hope so.

I have had my Lumia 1020 since around May 2014. At first it worked great and I had no problems with it, but a few months ago as I started to use the camera more and more, the shutter started getting stuck. It can happen at the worst such as when I'm at a concert or a family party. I usually have to restart the phone, re-open any app that uses the camera, and close it out.
My girlfriend got her Lumia 1020 before I did, but she always had the problem. I thought that getting the preview for developers would help, but it didn't. I have also tried resetting the camera. If anyone has any ideas on why this is happening or what I can do, I will gladly listen.

I have two Nokia Lumia 1020's. One shows the 4G icon and connects to data when not connected to wifi and the other does not. Both are updated to Lumia Cyan, etc and Windows 8.1. The settings in access point, cellular+sim and field test are identical. What am I missing here?

Answer:Why can't I connect to LTE on my Consumer Cellular Nokia 1020?

Have the same problem with my 820 and my wife's 925. Have spent hours on the phone with CC's tech people and gotten several different sets of values to put in the APN settings. After experimenting with them for who knows how long I have managed to get my 820 to be able to send Pictures with Text's using MMS and receive them; but still cannot use cell data to connect to the internet. That should be impossible. The 925 can get on the internet using cell data and receive Pcitures with Text's; but not send them. Neither will connect to 4G lte; but will connect to 4G. Another odd thing, the 820 has a slot for inputing the IP type, the 925 does not. CC's customer support says they have no data for IP type in their data base. Great huh. Those great low costs for service comes at a cost.
I also have a Moto G lte than can send and receive pictures with text's using MMS, and connect to the internet using cell data; but cannot receive 4 Glte. They have no setting for getting 4G lte on the Moto G lte; because the only two Moto G phones they sell cannot receive 4 G lte. Again I experimented with the settings they sent me for their Moto G's but the best I can get is 3G H, right below 4G .
