Hi! Yesterday I started having some issues with the whatsapp and messenger apps, in case of the messenger app it stays at the "connecting to network" stage even though my internet is working properly.
In the whatsapp case, images and audios would not download regardless of the fact that I have over 1GB of free space in my sd card, I tried to unistall and reinstall the app but now it wont verify my number, it displays a message telling me that it cant connect to the network.
I checked today and both apps are having the same issues, I have a nokia lumia 625 with windows 8.1.
If anyone could help me with this issue I would appreciate it! Thank you all.

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

Answer:How do I regularly sync (update) contacts & calendar between my desktop and Lumia 365?

It's all cloud and account based for syncing. So you need to use the same account on your phone to do the syncing.
Can't say more than that without further information.

How do I sync Outlook calendar directly to my Nokia Lumia phone? I am looking for an easy, accurate and reliable option without going through the cloud. I would prefer something wireless, if that's possible. (I'm not on Exchange.)
I did check Microsoft's tech support -- it says to go through Hotmail, Windows Live or Outlook.com. I don't want to go through those services and manual importing isn't an option. Everything I've read says that Microsoft Phone won't directly sync with Outlook on a PC. Seriously?

Answer:Sync Outlook with Nokia Lumia Windows Phone

Go to settings>email+accounts>then manually sync your microsoft account. This should sync your calendar unless you using a dummy account with your phone. My phone syncs with my windows 8 pc (including Calender) with no problem.

Hello. I was browsing on my Nokia Lumia 520 when all of a sudden the following alert popped up on my screen: WARNING! You could be using an outdated version of WhatsApp. To avoid potential interruption of service you have to upgrade your version immediately. STEP 1: Install the application on the next page. STEP 2: Confirm your phone number (if applicable) INSTALL APPLICATION...
Normally, I would click and install the update, but shouldn't all the updates be processed through the Store? Could this be a virus or something? What should I do?

Answer:On my Nokia Lumia 520, why am I getting a 'Whatsapp Outdated' Alert?

Don't download it. Updates only come via the store. WhatsApp is really loved by fake advertisers like this.

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.

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.

I have two Lumia phones. A 625 (purchased 6 months ago) and a 635 bought a week ago.
I connected the 635 to the same live.com account than the first one.
Under "settings->"email+accounts"->"Microsoft account" the only content to sync is email. The contacts option does not appear.
I want to sync my contacts on both devices and want to be able to modify one contact or delete etc and that this change immediately reflects on the other device but this seems impossible
Could somebody clarify this?
I appreciate it in advance

Answer:Why can't I sync contacts on a second Lumia phone?

Indeed you only see E-mail but this is because contacts and calendar etc are automatically synced.
So it's actual the other way around you can not "not sync" contact,
Only for E-mail you can decide if you want to sync or not but contacts etc always will be synced.
So if you check contacts on your new phone you will see that they are already on your phone.

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?

Going round in circles and getting stuck! 1 You do not need to use a outlook.com or live.com email address for a Microsoft Account.
2 in the Microsoft account on your phone you only see the e-mail box because the calendar, contacts are automatically synced so you can not disable this. Only for your e-mail you can decide to sync or not to sync.

Hi all
I have bought a new Lumia 630 from an iPhone 5 and as a whole liking the phone to be honest. But having one problem and that is when i transferred all my contacts from my IOS device some of my contacts i am not able to text and i do not know why and is getting quite annoying as i cannot receive texts from those individuals
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.
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

hi im trying to save my contacts from my lumia 625 to my sim card as I had a dud update a few months ago and im having to wipe the whole phone to bring it back to the latest download because I cant use my phone.. someone please hellllppppp meee.

Answer:How can i save contacts from my phone to sim card (I have a Nokia Lumia 625)?

If you're planning to use Lumia -which is yes- you only need your MS account, contacts are automatically synced with the cloud
Note that you can extract contacts and save them on the SD card, put move them to PC, after wiping up, import them.http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=...7-25eddccbebf2

On my list of contacts under "People" I have a profiles for friends containing details of phone numbers and other contact details.
For one contact in the "profile / call mobile" I have an up-to-date mobile phone number under which is written in small letters "Outlook".
For the same contact I also have a second "profile / call mobile" an old, no longer valid mobile phone number under which is written in small letters "Facebook".
I have tried without success to delete the second "Facebook" entry as it is obsolete.
On her Facebook page in the "About" section under "Contact and Basic Info" there is no telephone number shown.
Can anyone tell me how I can delete the obsolete telephone number under "call mobile" and above the word Facebook"?
Many thanks in advance

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 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.

I've had multiple problems syncing my Outlook Contacts with my old phone, a HTC Touch Pro 2. I know. OLD technology but, I kept the phone because of my $30/mo plan with Sprint. But, frustrations got the best of me and I went ahead and ordered a Windows Lumia 735 from Verizon, today.
Will I be able to sync Outlook on my Desktop with this phone?

Answer:Lumia 735 Will I be able to sync my Outlook Contacts wtih this phone..just ordered it?

Not enough information.
Version of Outlook
Do you have a Hotmail, live or outlook.com account to use on your phone? This is a must have.
Is this the account you have on desktop outlook?
If not you will have to export your desktop outlook contacts and import into your Microsoft account.
Then add the phone account to desktop outlook to keep calendar, email and contacts on desktop outlook.
The sync will not be directly to Outlook. It goes from the phone to your Microsoft account online and to the desktop.

I want to sync the Outlook data (Contacts, Calendar, Tasks) on my two laptops with my phone. I read somewhere that this could only be done via 'cloud' with the Lumia 930. Is this true? can I not just connect via USB and sync, like I do with my Blackberry? I don't want to have to go via the internet.
And, If I set the clock alarm, turn the phone off will the phone turn on automatically when the alarm goes off?
Anyone notice any other differences between blackberry bold and this phone?

My wife has a Nokia Lumia 520 purchased about 2 years ago. It is running Windows 8.0. As far as I know, she has never received an over-the-air invitation to download the update to 8.1. When we attempt a manual "phone update" through the settings, it says the phone is up to date. I have a Lumia 520 purchased about 6 months ago. I received the invitation to download 8.1 in early August, and did so successfully. So, wondering why one phone seemingly does not have access to 8.1

Answer:Why won't my Nokia Lumia 520 update to Windows 8.1?

Well it might be a software glitch? You could try connecting her phone to Nokia Software Recovery which should be able to upgrade her to Cyan if that's the latest version available for her phone. Do keep in mind that this process would erase her phone settings and data so do keep a backup before proceeding.

If you want the official WP8.1, you'll have to wait until Verizon releases it.
Otherwise, you may get the Developer Preview version. This article might be helpful, as well as the links it contains.

I'm handing my old phone over to my mum but I want to change the Microsoft account on the phone from my account to hers. I understand you need to completely reset the phone to do this, but I wondered if there was a way I could keep my contacts?
Obviously I can't save them to my Microsoft account because that would completely defeat the purpose as I'd have to sign back in!
Any help would be appreciated!
Cheers!

Answer:Want to reset my Nokia Lumia 520 to change the Microsoft account, but want to keep my contacts?
