Q: Why cant i download apps on my Microsoft lumia 550?

I recently bought a windows 10 lumia 550 and any apps I try and download just stay as pending. I've tried turning it off and on again, but no luck. Anyone have any solutions?

Preferred Solution: Why cant i download apps on my Microsoft lumia 550?

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.)

Hi please check under settings > accounts if your Microsoft account (which you used to sign in when setting up the phone) has synced properly.
Also check if time/date and region are set properly.
Please sign up so we can keep track of your progress

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'

I bought a new computer with Windows 8 preloaded, and really like the way it works, but when I first set up the computer as administrator, I by-passed the prompt to set up a hotmail e-mail account, thinking I could do this later.
Do I have to create this e-mail account to be able to download apps from the App Store? If so, what do I do to get it done?

A:Need to set up a Microsoft account so I can download apps

Yes you need a Microsoft account to be able to download apps from the Store. If you have ever used Hotmail, Windows Live, Xbox Live, Windows Messenger then you already have a Microsoft account and can use that information.

Microsoft Account - Switch to in Windows 8

To begin with press the WindowsKey+I to bring up the settings pane and click Change PC Settings at the bottom.
Then click Users
You should see a "Switch to a Microsoft account" button underneath your username.
You'll be asked to confirm your current password, if you didn't create one just hit enter.

If you have an account already you can put in the address here, if not at the bottom you should see a "Sign up for a new email address" link so click that and create an account.

Once you have created the Microsoft account and set it up in Windows, that email address and password will become your new login info for Windows.

Hi all,
I recently bought Surface 3 and would like to install only apps from the Windows store. I really believe the UWP is the way forward.
I think Microsoft should provide a tool to work on this file type since it is created by a Lumia smartphone.
However, I am struggling to find an app that can edit/ convert DNG files created from my Lumia smartphone. I downloaded Photoscape X Pro but it is showing error while showing thumbnail of the DNG file and the app just crashed.
So, which apps are you guys using for this kind of activity. I knew Adobe products would be the one to go but it is not there in the store yet; so it is out of question for now.
Thanks~

Usually this is caused by your Microsoft Account not being able to sync. BTW an error code or any explanation given really allows us to help you better.
Check that you can sync...

I found this out purely by chance today. Had to deal with Microsoft to see about getting a warranty replacement for my nine month old Lumia 830. I was informed by the MS rep that after October 1, they would no longer responsible for the Lumia brand and that they would be outsourced to a yet unnamed company. The question is, who is it?

Microsoft is not helping with my lumia 535 phone. There is no service center here in Malaysia. Please help! Where do I sought for help? The customer service is poor to max! First there were issues with the battery, secondly it wont charge, third - the keyboard types by itself like it is possessed! Fourth - Phone heats up within 5 minutes of conversation (hot like a cup of coffee in the morning). Fifth - Due to the heat, the edges of the back cover started to crack and the protect film peeled off. Now the phone is totally dead. Battery works well in another lumia 535 device. The customer service told me to contact a local microsoft service center but there is none. There is only a Nokia service center and they told me off that the parts are not available.

Microsoft is not helping with my lumia 535 phone. There is no service center here in Malaysia. Please help! Where do I sought for help? The customer service is poor to max! First there were issues with the battery, secondly it wont charge, third - the keyboard types by itself like it is possessed! Fourth - Phone heats up within 5 minutes of conversation (hot like a cup of coffee in the morning). Fifth - Due to the heat, the edges of the back cover started to crack and the protect film peeled off. Now the phone is totally dead. Battery works well in another lumia 535 device. The customer service told me to contact a local microsoft service center but there is none. There is only a Nokia service center and they told me off that the parts are not available. So what do I do now?

Hello. I have a Microsoft Lumia 640 XL since March and after a very short time the secondary camera seems to bug me. Every time I am trying to switch between the main one and the secondary it keeps showing me "SOMETHING WENT WRONG". I have even factory reset the phone and nothing good happened. Is there anyone that could help me? Please!

I don't think this is limited by hardware since the lumia camera seems better.It could be a nice option if you want to take pictures of night sky or a lighting storm.

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?

A:How do I unlock my Microsoft Lumia 640 screen lock?

You will have to reset your phone and loose whatever data is not backed up.
Power off. Hold Volume Down and tap Power. When the exclamation screen (!) appears release Volume Down.
Now tap Volume Up / Volume Down / Power / Volume Up...
The spinning gears will show and your phone will reset.
Unless you remember the password it is all you can do.

My Microsoft lumia 535 phone now charges very slowly. Also, the Microsoft phone charger that came with it has stopped charging it (the charger is still working fine because i have tested it on other phones). Recently i have been left with no choice but charge it with a samsung ipad charger or i use a USB cord to connect to my desktop or laptop, though not all USB cord is working with it. Also now selective with USB cords.
The problem started after my phone battery completely drained out flat. Since then, charging my phone has been an uphill task.
Pls help. It is affecting my communication as my phone is down most of the time now

A few apps, chiefly textnow and kik, suddenly stopped sending me push notifications, it does not appear on the tile and doesn't inform me until I've opened the app.
I uninstalled and reinstalled them both twice, neither reappeared in the Notifications + Actions section in Settings with messages being sent to them.
I soft resetted, 3 times then did a factory reset twice, first with back-up, the second time with clean slate. Reinstalling twice, with each soft and factory reset...
-nothing is restricted in data sense
-I'd never looked in the battery saving option before, but it does not have the run in background slider that facebook does.
I've ran these apps for over a year now and have had no issue with either until today.
As I am writing this, neither text now nor facebook messenger will load now!
Please help!!
