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.)

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

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.

Hi,
There are no contacts on my people list but when anybody calls me the name show up. So, they're somewhere in my phone but I don't know where. When anybody send me a message it doesn't come through. and my calendar events vanished too.
Why should I do? Please answer me :(

Answer:My contacts vanished when I updated to lumia cyan

This sounds odd. You should see your list of contact via the people hub. It might be worth double checking your Microsoft account is syncing properly via the accounts section in the settings.

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?

I'm in the UK, and yeah, apparently the windows phone 8.1 update was meant to have started rolling out from the 24th June. I've got a Nokia Lumia 520, I'm with EE, and my phone hasn't updated yet. Have been tempted to sign on with the developer preview thing but haven't been sure about whether it was worth the risk.
Any help or answers to why I haven't received the update? Cheers!

Answer:My Nokia Lumia 520 hasn't updated to Windows Phone 8.1

Simples... the support lifecycle for WP8.1 started on the 24th of June. Release of the update itself is in the hands of the networks. While you can get 8.1 via the Preview, you won't get the firmware and stuff that comes with the Cyan update until it's released. Cyan also includes 8.1 so if you're not on the Preview you will get 8.1 as well - Preview people will only get the firmware side of the update that enables various cool features in the new OS.

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.

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 phone will not recognize my 32 sd card, was told to reset and it will work

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.

Currently have a Lumia 720 and maximum time out is 5 mins which does not help with golf GPS apps such as Free Caddy as it locks soon after each shot rather than be free flowing. May upgrade to 735 if 'never' function is available - as it seems to be in a random selection of Lumias.

Answer:Does the Nokia Lumia 735 have a 'Never' option for the Lock Screen Timeout?

It's not a random selection but a ROM limited feature. Some ROM variants have it, some don't. Same could be said about the static IP option in Wi-Fi settings and field test mode. I don't have a 720 myself so can't really tell you which ROM had it enabled but if you managed to find one you can always flash to that ROM to get the lacking features, a phone change is really not needed.

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?

Elsewhere, use Wifi and do a soft reset

I changed touchscreen and immediately my nokia lumia 520 fell on the water. Now touch screen works, but back/start/search buttons don't. I really won't change touchscreen again.

Answer:Is there an app which could emulate back/start/search buttons on nokia lumia?

Unfortunately there is no app that is able to emulate those buttons throughout the operating system. New touchscreen may be your only option.

The contacts are in the contacts folder in alphabetical order available, but once I klick on the search button and enter a name the message is "no contacts found".
I am using the phone since early this year and this function was available before.

Answer:Why am I not able to search for individual contacts on my Lumia 1520 (cyan update) anymore?

It's working on my 1520.3 w/ 8.1 & Cyan...
Have you tried a reboot since the issue started? As a last resort, you may want to do a Hard Reset (after Backup, of course).

Hey guys!
I have decided to switch to nokia and i just love lumia 930 . Shall i bye bye it or wait it for a new handset.
Does anyone have any idea of the release of 1530 or 1030??

Answer:Decided to switch to Nokia: Shall I buy Lumia 930 or or wait for a new Nokia Lumia handset?

there's no rumors of any 1030, 1530, or any new top-of-the-line device.
I'd just pull the trigger now and get a 930.

I backed up all my apps and setting I thought. I've got everything back except my contacts.

Answer:I rest my Nokia Lumia 822 and I can't get my contacts back, how can I get them back?

Contacts typically Sync with an email account - e.g. Outlook.com/gmail. So check online in those for where it is and then in the Phone/Accounts, make sure Contacts sync is checked.

Hi,
im having call issues with my lumia 630 Single sim.
When i call or someone calls me they cannot hear me at all.
I have checked the forums and it was suggested that i update my phone. I have downloaded the preview for developers and updated my phone to the version : 8.10.14192.280 but this didn't help at all. I also rebooted/reset my phone removed sim and battery, re-inserted and none of this worked. I still cant use the MIC. i have tested sending a voice message in whatsapp as well but doesn't work. can someone please give me a solution to this problem as it is very very frustrating and unfortunately i do not have a backup phone to use.
Thanks Nicholas

Windows 8.1 update started on my phone but it has been running for the whole day (about 12 hours) I tried turning it on but every time I just see the spinning gears and then it shuts down again

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.)

I've had this 520 for about 3 years and it has recently been showing some problems. Two of which are, whenever I turn off/on the phone, it makes no noise indicating that it has turned off. (I checked the settings, it's on). And whenever I plug in the charger, it will charge, but it will not make a noise indicating that it has been plugged in. I restarted it, didn't work, I turned my volume to max, it didn't work. It is running Lumia Cyan. (8.1)

I just recently installed 8.1 on my windows nokia lumia 8.1 phone and now my internet wont work at all without wifi! I have tried resetting it and it didnt work

Answer:Why isn't my internet working on my Nokia Lumia 8.1?

Check if your phone was block on by the router--> go to your router settings--> mac filtering, some router may have different settings UI. Restart your phone, connect to power source--> reconnect to your wifi if that didn't help you may have to connect it to your PC and recover to the original OS version using the recovery tool, see if the wifi works after you recover it, if it didn't work it may need a repair.
Other info: Sometimes it lose connection be sure you're not blocking the antenna on your phone or the router, I experience it sometimes why I'm doing is I restart my router by removing the power source for about 10 sec and reconnect it again. It should work.

My Nokia lumia 735 comes on ith no problem and even sends me updates but when I try to use the screen it doesn't work I've tried soft reset and it still doesn't work.

Answer:Why isn't my Nokia Lumia 735 screen working?

I think you say you can read text but if you tab on the screen it does not respond.
In this case you have a defect of your touch panel. (Do you maybe see a small crack). I would recommend to backup your data (connect it with your pc) and send it for repair/ replacement.
PS
Using a hard reset or the Lumia software recovery tool may help if it is software (but than the soft reset should have help)

Answer:gps problem in nokia lumia 730. gps is not working

Unfortunately it seems that many new Lumias have problem with bad GPS.
Problem is not in HERE drive.
Test Your GPS with GPS test tool in Hardware tests (get for free from Windows Store). Switch internet and GPS off, move a couple miles away from Your place, switch GPS on (but not internet !). Count seconds until GPS gets ready. If You live on place with good satellite view, GPS should start for 3-5 sec.

So, I downloaded the most modern version of it. The version fit for 8.1 cellular smartphones. Then I used a two way cable. I plugged the first side into the place my phone charger would go on my cellular phone. The second side into the USB port on the back side of my PC box (not the mainframe/monitor). Then it said no connection found, so I redid it. I did this two more times, and it did not work. I did notice the cellular phone side didn't fit fully in though.

Hey guys, so I've noticed a lot of kinks in this phone since I got it about a year ago, but since updating to 8.1, the problems have gotten worse. This morning when I woke up I noticed airplane mode was on. I cant get it off, and then on top of that, my volume isn't working, and I have reason to believe the mic is dysfunctional as well, because when using the bing voice search it will not activate, and I cant record videos. Id love to say I could test the mic issue by calling someone, but alas, airplane mode cant be disabled so no calls/texts can be made.
I was told by a friend that downgrading back to 8.0 or lower could help, however I am unsure on how to do this, or unsure of where I can go online to do it.
If their is anything I can do to fix this besides sending my phone in for replacement, help would be appreciative.
I would prefer not to spend anymore money on this seeing as it hasn't lasted very long :/
Thanks in advance.

Answer:Why is my Nokia Lumia 928 not working properly?

There have been some "Airplane Mode" bugs... But it should have been patched. You can't download the patch as you are stuck in airplane mode.
Use the second tool on this page to reflash your device. (Lumia Software Recovery Tool.) It should put you up to date at 8.1 + patches. FAQ - How can I recover/reset/restore my phone software? - Microsoft - USA
If that does not solve it, you would need either the repair or a trip to XDA forums (search that) to get the instructions on flashing firmware and you also have to find the right 8.0 ROM...

A week ago while on vacation I dropped my Nokia 521 in the toilet. I immediately took it apart and dried it including where the battery and SIM card are located. When I put the battery back in it turned on so i thought it was okay. Later, I noticed that it had the fire bolt and gear on the screen. Not knowing what this meant, I plugged the phone in the charger and I then got the battery symbol with question mark. The phone has not worked since and will not turn on. I ordered a new battery but that is not the issue either. After doing some research, I saw something that said you can open it up and take out the battery and SIM card and put the phone in 99% alcohol. Has anyone heard of this? I am trying to get enough power to get my contacts and pictures transferred off of the phone. No, I never backed it up on the Microsoft Windows site.

Answer:Nokia Lumia 521 not working after dropping in toilet

Chances are it's gone completely, however this might work.
Get a air tight container or zip lock back fill it with rice, place the phone inside turned off and leave it alone for a few days or more (could take several weeks). I had a bold 9700 which met it's demise in a pocket full of Coca Cola. Long story short, a open can fell straight into my raincoat pocket at work when I was reaching for the phone (had a mountain of paperwork on my desk lol) - this happened several years ago.
I left the phone in there for several weeks, impatiently I took it out in a few days - nothing, 1 week - nothing, two weeks - nothing, then I left it there for 8 weeks. Phone turned on, but the screen was dead. I was able to recovery my data using the disconnect trick.
