Lumia 950 xl with AU out of the box?

Q: Lumia 950 xl with AU out of the box?

Is there any chance of getting Lumia 950 XL with anniversary update out of the box in coming months? Don't know whether Microsoft still producing Lumia 950xl or its just the old stock left. If anyone can confirm I can wait and buy.

Preferred Solution: Lumia 950 xl with AU out of the box?

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.)

Previously used this phone with Zune on my now-deceased PC with Windows XP (although even that took a while to establish). Now have an HP laptop with Windows 7 but Zune consistently refuses to recognize it and just comes up with the usual 'disconnect, turn off and reconnect'. I have downloaded both Microsoft Fixes and neither of them find anything wrong; I have uninstalled/reinstalled countless times; I have been into my certificates and made changes and/or deletions - and I m now simply running out of options ...and patience if I'm honest.

Almost all the internet advice suggests the fix is easy. Would the fact I've worked on this for over a month now suggest I am a one-off?!!!

A Google search revealed that there are many people who have had the same problem still unresolved after two years or so - just as often with other Windows Phones rather than Nokia. Can anyone help please?

Before I get to the poll a little history is in order I got my first droid retiring my GS moved to iOS from WinMO few years ago But I think it is the most 920 or ATIV Lumia S regrettable of decisions I made Because despite the fact that I always went for the higher end droid at least of its time e g Desire SGS SGSII Sensation SGSIII to name few I never found a stable solidly performing android phone They all suffered from random crashes reboots sluggishness hang ups and I only install apps - I need nothing more They all have various annoying quirks as well e g SGS ATIV S or Lumia 920 III doesn t want to find any WiFi network at times folders on home screen will randomly open at ATIV S or Lumia 920 their own my older Sensation s screen would stop responding quot in some places quot etc IMHO almost all droids I owned had great hardware but a crappy OS Few months ago I got my hands on Lumia and used it along side my Sensation SGS III for months and my views about WP totally changed It easily outperforms all those multi-core droids with its dated single core SoC being absolutely rock solid and very easy to use UI unlike androids copycat of iOS It is time again to jump ship only thing to decide is should I get ATIV S or Lumia though I m tilting toward the later due to better support upgrade cycle of Nokia compared to Samsung However SuperAMOLED display of ATIV S will be more battery friendly and it also have expansion slot ATIV S comparison Lumia specs Specs of HTC X amp Accord rumored Lumia along side Samsung ATIV S So what you guys would pick nbsp

A:ATIV S or Lumia 920

I'm firmly set on the Lumia 920 right now. I've always had a thing for Nokia handsets, and until Android hit the scene I only ever owned them. Plus, I don't think I'll miss the lack of storage expansion (my SGS3 has 16GB now and I'm only using 1GB of it!), and I think Nokia will be quicker and more supportive with its own apps than Samsung will be.

I currently have an 8GB,Micro SDHC, Class 4, Non-branded Memory Card in my phone, but it's full up. I have bought & tried a Kingston 64GB, Micro SDXC, Class 10; a SanDisk, 64GB, micro SDXC, Class 10; & a Samsung 64GB, micro SDXC, Class 4. None of them is recognized by my phone, although they work fine in my laptop. Do I need to reduce the size down to a 32GB, SDHC, or what can anybody recommend for me to try next. I have read that somebody has installed a 128GB in the same model phone & got it to work, but I don't want to go to the expense for that size. Thanks for any suggestions!

A:Memory card for Nokia Lumia 1520 smart phone.

It's not something I've experienced, so maybe someone who's experienced the problem first hand will come along shortly. However, when you say they aren't recognised, I assume it shows the SD Card in Storage Sense as 'not found'? Just out of interest, if you install the 'Files App' (a Microsoft App), does if show the card then?

Another thing to check is whether the cards are formatted to the right file system? Taken from HERE:






What file systems do my Lumia phone support?

Your phone supports FAT32 for SDHC cards, exFAT for SDXC cards, with a single Master Boot Record (MBR) partition table.

- Up to 32-GB SDHC cards using the FAT file system.
- 64-GB SDXC cards using the exFAT file system.



Instructions for formatting the card here:
FAQ - My memory card is not working properly in Lumia phone - Microsoft - UK

If that doesn't work, a quick Google search shows that some people have needed to completely reset the phone before it would recognise their SD card. Obviously, this would be a bit of a sledge hammer solution and not particularly ideal as it would entail backing up your entire phone, completely wiping it and starting again from scratch by going to Settings > About > Reset Your Phone.

Hi there, Nokia Lumia 635 doesn't have a feature to save the Contacts list in a Micro SD card. In the Microsoft Store, I was able to see a few Apps (free) and one of them (sorry, forgot the name) came directly from a Microsoft site but it was not to be
seen in the list of installed apps. Another one found could compile all the contacts in Excel and email out. But I would like to know about one that can save it in a Micro SD, restore it to the Phone when a need arises and much more, if any. So, please advise
if there is a paid/free App that would do this. Mine is W10 upgraded.Thanks.

I'm using a Lumia 640 Dual SIM running Windows 10 Mobile (10586.164), but am unable to choose which SIM card to call someone from within the People App now. You used to be able to press the down arrow and select which SIM card to call from, but now it doesn't matter where you press, it just dials the phone number without giving you any choice. As you can tell by the 'History' tab in the below screenshot, this is with the latest version of the People app.

My Microsoft Lumia 532 Dual Sim mobile when connected to my ProBook via a USB 2 port (also USB 3) is not seen by Windows 10 as a device. My Windows has all known updates. My Lumia 532 runs Windows Phone 8.1 Update. I urgently need to back up the contacts on my mobile (possibly using PhoneCopy) . Could this be caused by a USB driver for the ProBook not being up to date? If so where do I go to, to download the latest driver? Or are there special settings either on the Lumia or in Windows which enable USB commincation? Ideas desperately needed please! Many thanks...

Welcome to the forum sukle.

Can't really help with your problem but a few ideas while you wait for one of the experts to come along and help.

Is your phone completely up to date ? Do you have the 8.1 update on your phone ?

I only have the Lumia 520, I have no problems with this on my 8.1 Update 1 Asus Notebook, I've just plugged it in so of course it's charging, usually charge through the mains adapter so very rarely plug it into the computer as everything can be done from the phone.

Sorry I can't help but I'm sure someone will be along soon to help you out.

Would you make Surface the 'stylish' tablet/laptop brand, and Lumia the 'colorful' branding?

Would you make Lumia for phones and laptops only, and have Suface be the hybrid laptop/tablets?

Throughout a day, my phone restarts for about 6-7 times. Most of the time it happens when my mobile data connection is on.

A:Why does my Lumia 950 XL suddenly restarts so often nowadays?

Are you running multiple apps in the background? Does it freeze and then restart? If so it could be the lack of ram space or an OS glitch also if you recently installed a new app uninstall it to see if your restarts stop.

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.

Hi,
With the update from 10586.494 to 14393.5 the Lumia 635 became useless. Completely useless.
The nav bar is constalntly on and hiding the menu items on ALL apps, including built-in ones, like camera, calculator, phone dialer... all.
The phone became useless instantly.
Previously, the nav bar was outside of the system screen, now it became the part of it.
I cannot switch it off or hide it
WHY?????
Please fix it or it will be in the bin in a week (and I think I will not be the only one).
Thanks

Hi.
My Nokia Lumia 625's battery drained the other day during afternoon. I put it on charge at night but the phone didn't turn on. The phone vibrates, the nokia logo appears and then it disappears (as if the phone has shut down) and the whole process repeats. I didn't even get to the point where the empty battery sign appears. When I remove the charged and try to turn on the phone, the phone doesn't turn on as if its battery is zero.
What seems to be the issue?

A:Nokia LUMIA 625 won't turn on

A:Cant Decide between Lumia 650 vs Lumia 640 XL

I have the non xl Lumia 640 and the battery is a beast. If you can do without Zeiss optics I'd give you this 3rd option. 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.

I received my new Lumia today and charged it to 65% at 3PM and by 10 PM today, it dropped to 5%. There was no heavy usage, texting and calling and data was on but still only one app was used. I am getting jittery and don't really want to return my new phone. Help please

Settings, Personalization-sounds, and choose your ringtone at the top. I believe you have to have a default tone in notifications for being able to use custom time for different things. Settings, System-notifications, find the phone notification and change it to default.
