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: 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.
Here is an article back from May about apple getting sued over it. I haven't seen or heard anything since. Apple sued over disappearing iMessage texts sent to Android users - CNET

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

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.

Answer:Why won't my Nokia Lumia tell me when I have a text message?

Re-pin it. Try soft reset too

Relevance 92.25%

Every now and again the issue is happening - when I go onto the text messages and click in the box to begin typing a message, the phone freezes and turns itself off - sometimes also when accessing emails.
I have been all through the forums and tried what has been suggested, but I am not having much luck.
Does anyone have anything new to try and solve this once and for all?!
Very very annoying!!!

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.
P.S what model phone do you have?

Answer:Why can't I receive photos that are sent to me via a text message on my Lumia Nokia 630?

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).
I would of expected a web link to have been displayed instead to view it via a browser.

How do you set a text message repeat until read tone on a Nokia Lumia 530.

Answer:How do you set a text message repeat until read tone on a Nokia Lumia 530?

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.

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.
Take backup of the same (as it is possible on Android device) ;)

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?

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.

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.

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: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 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?

By the way, have you thought of alternatives like using viber or whatsapp or other messenger apps that allow sending of videos?
Or sending by email?

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...

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.

I am using nokia 730 dual , i have done my address book with the phone numbers with out country code but some times I got massages / phone calls with the country code, for those who are in my contact list with out the country code , those cases phone is not showing the contact name it shows only the number with the country code.
Same thing happen when massage or phone call coming with out the leading zeros also not display the name

Answer:Why are my contacts showing up as only the phone number when I get a text message?

Best way to add a contact is always with the country code, but use the + prefix.
E.g. +44 1212 123123 for UK or +1 123 123 123 for the USA.
The phone will then always make a contact work and display. Unless your local carrier has weird network configuration issues.

Running Windows 7.8. I've been able to retrieve e-mails from Outlook since I created my Outlook a/c a few months ago. Five days ago I got error message 80072F06: Outlook Error - There is a problem with the certificate for col402-m.hotmail.com. It suggested I contact a support person. I phone ed EE who passed me to Orange, who suggested I change the certificate to blu-m.hotmail.com, which I did, but it didn't make any difference. They said they were transferring me to Nokia. When none of the options fitted my query Nokia disconnected. I then messaged Nokia who told me to check the date and time were correct on my phone - they were. After being connected nearly an hour I was told to raise the query with Microsoft as it was out of Nokia's scope. I now get error message 80072EFD and Windows Live is also now not connecting. I am about to backup and restore to factory settings, but I don't understand why nobody can solve this. I've looked all over the internet for these error messages and haven't found any solution. Can anyone help?

Customer has Lumia800 and wants to upgrade. We cannot transfer "people" contacts to either outlook.com; live.com or even by Bluetooth to the new phone (only texts will transfer). Its as if the contacts are locked within a cloud account that we cant access. I'm thinking there may have been an original live account that the customer has set up by others that no longer appears within the handset and he has no recollection of? The contacts still appear in the handset but we cant get to copy or sync them. Tried everything we can find on various forums to no avail.

Answer:Why is my Nokia Lumia 520 not working?

Power it down and remove the SD card.
Plug into the AC charger, it will boot and let the update roll. If it gets stuck again do a soft reset. (Hold Volume Down + Power until the phone vibrates and then release the buttons.)
