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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

On the current Redstone build, it's virtually a tie. I was getting two days between charges on my 640 XL running 8.1. 14393.5 will give you two days charge as well.

Can the Lumia 830 from ATT be used on T-Mobiles 4G LTE service? T-Mobile used bad 2,4, and 12 but the 830 on ATT doesn't have those bands built in. Just the bands 1,3,7,8, and 20 but they have the same MHz. If anyone could help me clarify this, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Hello i want to buy a Lumia 521 in eBay
It says Network Locked;
I don't care about using cellullar in this phone i just want to use the phone
My question is can i use the phone without inserting a Sim Card (i don't want to use calling and messaging that require a sim card) ''''' i live in Kosovo and T-mobile is not avaliable in Kosovo
I asked the buyer but he is not understanding my question !!!
If i can use the phone without sim card then if i update or hard reset my phone*(Lumia 521) will it ask to insert a sim card or type any unlock code!!!

A:Can i use a Lumia 521 T-Mobile Network Locked without a SIM-Card

When it boots it will advise that no SIM is in and you can dismiss the message, then use it on WiFi or without data connection all you want. No unlock code is needed for SIMless use.
IMHO, it is still a great toy to have. It basically is the same as the 520 inside. You may like this old thread: Project: Five2Oh

Hello,
I have been running Windows 10 Mobile on the latest Production Release, non-Insider, and my Mobile Hotspot won't work over WiFi. I can still use it over Bluetooth but it is slow compared to WiFi.
I am using AT&T with 5 GB of data with my Lumia 950 XL. I was able to use the Mobile Hotspot with my Lumia 1520 and 830 without any problems.
I did try changing the APN as recommended by a user here who spoke with AT&T customer service but that didn't work at all.
I appreciate the help and input.
Thank you.

A:Lumia 950 XL - Mobile Hotspot not transmitting via WiFi

I'm on AT&T with a 950 XL so I can say it does work. I did have some issues with some Production Release versions. I think it was because of the options to enable the PC to enable the hotspot. Turn that off and it should work.

Cricket Wireless' unlimited plan doesn't technically allow mobile hotspot, but I know it's possible to work around it because I'm able to use it on my Moto X Pure with Cyanogenmod ROM installed.
I'd like to buy a 640 as a backup phone, but only if I can use the mobile hotspot with the unlimited plan.
Can anybody confirm whether it's possible to use mobile hotspot on Cricket's $70 unlimited plan with the Lumia 640? I'm thinking it might be possible with an install of W10M insider preview...

A:Mobile Hotspot on Lumia 640 with Cricket $70 unlimited plan?

Insider Preview doesn't do anything to unlock the restricted tethering option. W10M/WP check with the carrier to see if your IMEI is authorized to use tethering. I've been poking in the registry to see if I can disable this, but I've had no luck thus far.
I'm on: L640, W10M Fast, Cricket.
If you want to tether without anyone bothering you, FireFoxOS.

So I've updated my Lumia Icon to Win10 a couple weeks ago and it worked quite fine.
Today I've found my phone at 17% battery charge. Plugged it in and forgot about it for a while. Couple hours after - 12%! Went to the battery saver setting and saw (plugged in, not charging) message next to the battery charge percentage.
Replaced the battery - same problem. Computer sees the data from phone as usual. Tried a different USB cable - same story. Tried to charge it with a wireless charger that worked just fine for me recently - same issue. Did a regular restart, and a couple of soft resets - nothing changed. Not sure what else I can do now. Don't want to do hard reset until it's the absolutely last chance.
Any ideas guys?

Hi everybody.
I have searched now for the last 4 hours every forum, but I did not find a solution. I just bought today a lumia 550 with windows 10 (10.0.10586.0).
If I want to download an app from the store (e.g. whatsapp) the download starts but than it remains at 0.0. However the connection is good, I can surf in the internet, update my mails, etc. but the store downloads don't work.
Does anybody have a solution? I?m pretty desparate. I also did the region and time setting thing, but it didn?t help
Thanks a lot in advance'

A:Lumia 640 win mobile 10. stuck on low charge screen wont turn on off charger

So one day I reset my phone due to my phone slowing down, and it would not turn on.
For info purposes I have a Lumia 640 updated to win 10 (originally 8.1)
After this I put it on the charger, it would load the Microsoft logo. then go to the charging screen with plug icon.
This is odd due to being at 80℅ of battery before I rebooted. Often it'll sit there with no result, sometimes it'll reboot multiple times.
If I remove the charger the phone instantly turns off. This has been going on for 5 days. Yesterday when I plugged the phone in it went back to tiles, but when I removed the battery to put my sim back in the issue came back. It also showed 72℅ charged so can't be the battery, and I don't know how that happened.
Windows recovery tool can't see the device and when I choose the find option the fix won't get to the phone. When I plug my Lumia via USB it reboots over and over and disconnects over and over as my computer keeps making the USB sound. The only time this doesn't happen is if i hold volume up or down when I plug it, sometimes, and that just freezes it on the ms logo. When I continue from there the phone will reboot as the installation is loading.
The issue is clearly not the battery. As it's 70℅ or so, yet Iget the 0 charge icon and the phone won't turn on outside the charger.
I have no clue what the solution to this problem is.

Is there a way to force it to reset without having to have a working operating system on it? How do I force it to install windows 8.1 again?

Is there a way to force it to reset without having to have a working operating system on it? How do I force it to install windows 8.1 again? There's the hard reset key sequence:
1 - unplug phone
2 - hold vol up and simultaneously plug charger
3 - keep holding until a ! mark appears
4 - leave button and follw the sequence one key once:
vol up, vol down, power, vol down
5 - gears should appear, you phone should replace last downlaoded build
If doens't work, plug your phone to a pc and use WDRT.
holding power button is soft reset, and is useless now. For all the rest, keep in touch and join forum, we can help you

you require minimum 2gb of internal phone memory in order to successfully update to anniversary update.

Moreover we are expecting a new version on the upcoming patch Tuesday. The upcoming patch will hugely improve the experience with more bug fixes and improvements. '
If you can manage a hard reset and fresh start with your phone , i would suggest you to upgrade to windows 10 because upgrading to windows 10 should always be followed by a hard reset to counter and fix any glitch arisen due to the upgrade and if you cant then stick with 8.1.

Go for it ;)

I have two Lumia's: 925 and 625.
Since we try to have as less radiation as possible (if possible at all, but I don't want to go into that discussion) around the house we switch our phones to airplane mode as much as possible. Off course also at nights.
Now, I discovered with a special measuring device, which is able to measure all kinds off radiation) that these lumia's frequently send a signal even when it is on airplane mode (with Wifi, NFC, BT off). The strangest thing is even that this is NOT occurring when the phone is normally on, but only when the lock-screen is active. (with or without Glance where applicable)
I notice a peek in send-signal every 5 seconds. I tried playing around with several settings but the devices keep doing this..
Is anybody familiar with this?

Please give the call recording feature on my Lumia 535 by update or application. just please give this important feature. That's just one think is missed in anniversary windows 10 update. I was thought that feature is also going to be include in update but their is not provided that's very worst think. I hope you will try to give this feature in upcoming next update. Just let me know is this feature is coming or not?

A:when the call recording feature is given in lumia update(e.g.lumia 535)?

Welcome to Windows Central! We are a Windows products fan site and not an official Microsoft website so any complaints or ideas you post here will not reach Microsoft.
You have a Lumia 535 so the chances of getting the call recording feature are slim. According to the latest news, only phones that shipped with Windows 10 Mobile preinstalled (so in other words; when you booted up the phone it started with a version of windows 10) will get that feature.
All other phones (those that came with windows 8 or 8.1) will probably not see this feature. It also depends on hardware according to Microsoft.

Hello Everyone,
I am unable to install word mobile on my Lumia 640 XL LTE running on windows 10 mobile. I had actually installed this app (word) already but the had to change my memory card. After inserting my new memory card, i am able to re-install almost all of my apps except for WORD mobile.
I keep getting this error - Couldn't install. We'll try again later - The error code is 0x80073CF6. Please note, excel app was also throwing the same error but upon trying 3-4 times, it got installed. But, word is not installing at all - have tried installing at least a 100 times. Restarted by mobile at least 10-15 times.
I know a hard reset would solve this problem for me but I am not ready for that yet! Thanks!

People with knowledge of the matter have hinted that Windows Mobile could launch as soon as today and now there s more evidence that this is indeed very likely to happen The latest confirmation comes from T-Mobile Croatia one of the carriers that are Launches Today, T-Mobile confirms Mobile gearing up for the release of Windows Mobile It thus confirms that Microsoft is Mobile Launches Today, T-Mobile confirms indeed very close to Mobile Launches Today, T-Mobile confirms giving the go-ahead to the operating system for a number of devices This is actually the most important bit of information as not all Windows Phone models would get Windows Mobile as part of the original wave The plan is to bring the new OS on absolutely all handsets running Windows Phone but for the moment the staged rollout will include only a handful of models Models getting the upgrade in the first wave T-Mobile Croatia says the following models will be upgraded to Windows Mobile in the original rollout that kicks off today Lumia single- and dual-SIM Lumia single- and dual-SIM Lumia GB Lumia Lumia XL Lumia Lumia Lumia Lumia Microsoft has also provided its very own list of devices that ll be upgraded to Windows Mobile as part of this first wave and the big difference is that Lumia is included in T-Mobile s version whereas the flagship is nowhere to be found in Microsoft s The super-popular Lumia doesn t seem to be mentioned in either of the lists so it s pretty clear that this model will be left behind at first A second wave however is supposed to expand Windows Mobile s availability to the rest of models running Windows Phone so Lumia could get it too at some point in the future Microsoft s official announcement coming later today should set things clear in this saga and provide us with all the information we need on the release of the new operating system From Softpedia nbsp

Hello i have a laptop, with Network & Modem i want to connet to the internet using my Nokia 5110 what do i need and what do i do or is it even possiable p.s i have a Nokia 5110 Data Cable (Sirial)

Thanks for any replys!
 

A:Mobile Internet using mobile phone

a serial data cable can't connect to the internet.
First of all you need a data capable phone which I don't think the 5110 can.

You need a 6210 or 7110 etc more info on nokia website

Even with data phone I've never heard of a suitable cable but you can connect using infrared adapter - you need infrared capability on phone too. I guess it would be dead slow too.

if you want to connect to internet on laptop but a nokia card phone. You put it in you PCMCIA slot after putting your SIM into it and it acts like your phone. It's fast and reliable but about 150 GBP

Also to my knowledge the 650 cannot capture 1080p video cause of the snapdragon 2** series but I think that the performance deference of the 650 and 640(xl) is not noticeable. Edit: The 650 has an oled screen while the 640xl has ips, judging from my phone if you want a screen visible under the sun the 640 is a no go.

Your best option may be to open device manager (with device connected) and uninstall any related device, making sure the 'Delete driver software for this device' is checked.Once you have done this, unplug your device, uninstall WMDC 6.1 and reboot your machine.

So far so good, for an entire week. Yesterday, the Store wasnt working, so I though maybe is something at Microsoft. Today (after a simple reboot) the store got back at working, but then the phone start rebooting randomly and wasnt turning on. At all, just loop at booting, after I performed two times, hard reset, the phone sims to get back at normal, except there is something wierd with the screen, if you lock it, it loks, you hear the sound, but the screen doest turn off, since this model has an LCD panel, you can tell easily that is still turned on, its frustraiting me and its draining the battery like crazy. Does anyone know a workaround this, or what is causing it? I appriciate the time and effort. Thank you in advance. You made the error of using WDRT instead a hard reset, (a hard reset install again last downloaded build) so now you must restart the update procedure. Are you sure you got back Denim instead Cyan?
Sounds like phone its tryin updating all core apps to 10 version but they are stuck in Store, check list and control.
Warining: STORe app itself must be updated first
Then check sync settings, byt default all videos are synced to OneDrive, disable it!.
Last workaround is getting back 8.1, using Upgrade Advisor for getting last official Win10, letting phone sync and updating via wifi for at least 2 days, and checking store list and settings.
After thatm you can join again insiders.
REMEMBER: every phone needs a couple of days for completing updating after an hard reset, especially older phones like yours

My beloved Lumia 1520 is coming to its last stages of life, with its navigation keys losing its functionalities. I already paid a hefty price to replace the touch panel once. I dont want to do it again. Should I buy a Lumia 950 or a Lumia 650 or should I wait for something better(Cant imagine what that would be)?

Hi,
I have have Lumia 920 currently running Windows 10 Mobile 10.0.10586.545. I'm starting to have hardware issues. So I need to buy a new phone. I was trying to wait for the next phone release by Microsoft (hoping for a surface phone or something...) but won't be able to do that.
There's no carrier with windows phone. Microsoft Store is my only option with unlocked phones. I don't have the money for the 950 for now so what would you suggest? The Lumia 550 or the 650? I'm in Canada so those are my 2 options.
Will any of those 2 better than the 920? I love that phone..... just sad it's not working very well anymore.
Thanks

Hello guys. I would like to ask you people about what is the next windows 10 mobile that we would get to see. We are not going to see any more Lumias and whenever the surface phone arrives, it would prove to be very costly. Which other OEMs are planning to release windows mobiles, particularly in the low and mid range?

A:What's next after Lumia?

the best answer would be to wait and watch what happens in the next few months or early 2017 with announcement of a new hardware or new devices devices from regional OEM. Lumia series has been discontinued by microsoft so we might see a new range of hardware as we are expecting microsoft to hint at surface phone but with fingers crossed.
But microsoft may not feel investing in the hardware again , and becoming a software only like blackberry.

I'll be buying a Windows phone soon and my budget is not too high. I want to know how is Blu Win HD LTE in comparison to Lumia 640 considering the former has a better CPU Snapdragon 410 while Lumia 640 has Snapdragon 400. Will the processor makes any difference?

A:Blu Win HD LTE vs Lumia 640, which is better?

That won't affect so much. The support for the 640 is certainly much better.

A Lumia 950 is on the way to my home along with a Mozo case and Sandisk Extreme Pro MicroSD card (transfer rates matter)
Before it arrives what information will I need to ensure a positive first time experience and what should I first do with the Lumia 950 when hands on with the device. I am coming from owning an iPhone, so my expectations are somewhat high.
I understand that Microsoft are no longer creating Lumia phones, but instead letting other companys make them, but still supporting Windows 10. This was a reason as to why I bought a Lumia 950 as its a premium phone with high specs and knowing I will soon have a legacy phone that no one will else have :)

A:Lumia 950: Prep

Expect it to be a bit slow and warm at first as everything installs and sets up, and run it through the Windows Updates about 2-3 times. Takes a while to settle as every app gets installed/updated.
Then start enjoying it. Great camera and as you say, a good way to be a little different.

My 625 keeps freezing even after doing several soft resets.
From what I have read everyone says to do a factory reset but no one has actually said if this extreme measure works or not. Im not going to do a factory reset if it does'nt work. This is obviously a very common problem so why hasn't it been sorted with a software update. Oh, the phone is running the new Denim OS

A:Why does my Lumia 625 keep freezing?

There are a lot of reasons and a factory reset may cure them. But a slow Sd card Class 4) or a "bad" SD card or not enough storage space can also be a reason and this can not be solved by a factory reset. Also if you allow a lot off apps in the background can be a reason.
Clear IE history and with storage sense temp filed.
So try to find out which one it is and if all this fails a factory reset may help.

A:Should i upgrade my lumia 535 to w10?

a phone with 1 GB RAM is good for windows 10 ,
I recommend to wait a little bit more until the update is avaliable through settings / phone update although if you want to experience Win 10 i say update ,; Microsoft says that your phone is avaliable for upgrade!!
