Preferred Solution: Why can't I text more than 4 letters to anybody in my NOKIA LUMIA 630?

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: Why can't I text more than 4 letters to anybody in my NOKIA LUMIA 630?

That's ridiculous, can you elaborate whats happening?
Is the phone not allowing more than 4 characters to be typed?
Is the character counter out of 4?
That's so weird I've never heard of it before.
EDIT: what's your carrier?

Do originals show up as sent texts on your phone? Taking a guess that someone is spoofing your phone number on their own device.

I want to type in traditional Chinese characters using HanYu PinYin.

Answer:How do you text in chinese on the Nokia Lumia 710?

Installing the PinYin keyboard and making it default would be the immediate answer... I feel that is too obvious and thus not really the answer you are looking for.
Try this App:
It supports WP 7.5 and can create PinYin (maybe to copy/paste also???) pictures to send over MMS

My Nokia Lumia 930 is turning itself off mid text and rebooting on its own. As you can imagine its driving me mad it sometimes happens when im trying to put a facebook status aswell. It is like it stops typing the letters argggggghhhh help please

Answer:Nokia Lumia 930 is turning itself off mid text why ? help please

I would strongly urge you to make all necessary backups and flash a clean copy of the OS and Firmware using Lumia Software Recovery Tool found here: How can I recover/reset/restore my phone software? - Microsoft - USA
This will rule out any software issue. Test it without restoring the backup and if all is smooth then you can do a Factory Reset and restore your backups. (Settings > about > reset your phone) If everything stays smooth great!!! If something then gets glitchy after the backup is restored you need ot look at your most recently installed Apps for the troublemaker.
If the issue is still present after the flash and before the backup restore, then you have a hardware issue and should seek a warranty repair.

The phone receives and sends messages fine, but when I receive a text, it doesn't show that I have a new text on the icon. If I go into my messages, it shows the new text, just doesn't register in the little icon so therefore my alert doesn't go off.

Recently, my phone has been having difficulty processing my texts. Like I will type out a word and once I click the space, it doesn't want to continue processing the other words I typed out, or even if I want to type out "The" it will only process the T and not the he.
Is there a solution for this problem?

Answer:Why does my Nokia Lumia 635 stop mid-text when I am trying to reply to someone?

Phones like computers need to be forced to clean-up every now and then...
Try completing a Soft Reset, it won't delete any data, but will reset your date/time. Press & hold Volume Down + Power buttons at same time for about 10 seconds until the screen goes black and resets... Hopefully this fixes your issue.

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

Does anyone have anything new to try and solve this once and for all?!

Answer:Microsoft Nokia Lumia is turning itself off when going onto a text message.

What have you tried?
A soft reset? Checking you have enough free space in your internal storage? A hard reset? Windows Device Recovery Tool? Remove your SD card (if installed).
Failing all that perhaps your phones hardware is faulty.

Alright, I just picked up a new Icon this week, and have already noticed a bizarre little bug in the Messaging App.
Whenever I message my friend (he has a Droid Bionic) anything with a line break (i.e. any time I press enter), the message that he receives does not the contain the break, or even a space. This makes it so the whole message appears as a single paragraph when it should be several.
Any idea as to why this issue would arise? I'm on Windows 8.1, he's on 4.1.2 JellyBean.
We've already checked with Verizon, they have no idea.

thanks in advance

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.

If it's a photo it'll be sent via MMS, so you need to make sure you've got MMS enabled on your carrier account and the MMS settings on your phone (carrier will supply this info, usually automatically straight to phone).

You mean the Alert tone? You don't.
The Live Tile shows a count of how many unread messages you have even in smallest size and the Notification Center displays the alert until you read the message or physically remove the notification.
?But having your phone constantly beep and boop at you? Nope.

When I try to send a text message on my Nokia Lumia 928 is says: "Your SIM card is missing or damaged" and does not send the message. It also will not make calls and when I try it gives a message "SIM error." I examined the card and it doesn't seem to be damaged. I didn't drop my phone or anything to cause damage.
Why does it give this message?
How can I fix this problem?
Will everything on my phone be lost if it actually is damaged?

Answer:Why does my Nokia Lumia 928 give me an error message when I try to send a text message?

SIM cards can go bad... SIM Trays can go bad.
Test this by trying another SIM in your Phone... Does it work? Tray is good. Try your SIM in another Phone. Does it get seen? SIM is good.
You could ask your provider for a new SIM also.
Occasionally, this could be a software issue. Try a Soft Reset (you won't loose data). Hold the Volume Down + Power buttons until the phone vibrates and reboots (about ten seconds).
Otherwise, make a backup and then reset with Lumia Software Recovery Tool as described here: FAQ - How can I recover/reset/restore my phone software? - Microsoft - USA

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 )
2. You shouldn't shove things other than the hp jack into the hp port.
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?

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.

Answer:Why is my nokia lumia 925 crashing at the nokia screen?

Hi, I had a similar problem. First I thought it was the battery, until I eventually figured out that it was the motherboard. Changing it won't be easy, so take it to a shop

Hi. Having a problem with Nokia Lumia 520 and Nokia CK-100 Car Kit.
Was connecting & running fine while phione was Windows 8.
Immediately after the Windows 8.1 upgrade this changed.
Now every time I start the car the phone "connects" multiple times (used to do so just once).
So it goes "Phone Connected", followed by "Player Connected" about 2/3/4/5 times at the start of every journey.
PS. RThe phone stils works properly on the kit etc... - its just the nusiance of listening to it connect (& disrupting radio/music eytc... while doing so).
Tried un-pairing & re-pairing the devices etc... - no joy.
Any ideas?

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.

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? :(

If you're on AT&T, you've got it already, just check for updates. If you've got the developer preview installed, you need to use the Nokia Software Updater for Retail to roll back to 8.0 first, then update to Cyan.

When I run IE 6.0 (Service Pack 2) on my Windows XP I sometimes cannot read certain information (such as my bank statement) because the text is in block lettering & #'s. I checked under Tools, Internet Options, General, & Font. There are 3 choices there. The first two match my other computer (latin based & times romain) but the third one, "plain text font" does not allow any options other than "etude". On my other computer it is set for courrier new and I believe this is where the trouble lies. Anybody know how to change this b/c the sample etude is what my text looks like. Thanks

Answer:some text in block letters

If this works, the attached image will show your Internet Options>General>Fonts section.

Your web page fonts should show on the left side of this under section heading 'Web Pages'. The other is for things like Windows explorer.

If you can only see a few under 'web page' you may need to install more. Find your c:\Windows\Fonts folder in Windows explorer and see what is listed there. If there are some more there, you could install them. If you highlight and click File, one option is to install.

Another option, is at the bottom of this image you can just see 'Acc...'. This is Accessibility section. Click on that and it brings up another box showing, at the top, three options. If you click Ignore Font Types and Ignore Font Sizes, you may fix you proglem.

If you check the text you'll see that the extended ascii characters with accents and diacritical signs are not supported.
You may have chsoe the incorrect language code.

Pètroleuse or Pétroleur

These special characters are transaletd to equivalent numbers but you cannot derive the source from them. I don't think it's random but it happens very often especially when you use internation settings.

Check the language code uses iso something or other.

If I choose one it then appends the word to the already typed text creating a misspelled word. E.g. I type d..a..y intending to type daylight.

This just started happening out of the blue. Certain security fields (e.g. windows login, online game password fields, etc.) suddenly force all entered text to capital letters, with one exception: text entered using the Microsoft on-screen keyboard. Switching input keyboards did not fix the problem.

How do you know that entered passwords end up in uppercase; passwords are usually invisible?

What is your Windows version?

Do you have multiple keyboards defined under Regional and Language Options?

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)
