The voice guidance is lost after maps app is updated on microsoft 650 windows 10 phone

Q: The voice guidance is lost after maps app is updated on microsoft 650 windows 10 phone

Went through the hard reset 6 times in order to locate what is responsible for loosing the voice driving navigation. Yes, it is exactly MAPS own update which drops the voice guidance.
Microsoft support is not able to provide any suggestions.

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,
I am using Here Drive+ navigation on my Windows phone 8.1
I am located in Bulgaria and evertything works fine - completely offline, all required maps are downloaded. I used it to travel to different countries and calculates the route as expected.
Now I plan to travel to Moldova and downloaded the map of Moldova (90 MB).
When I want to find a route to any city in Moldova, I receive the message:
"NO NAVIGATION - your route runs through a country or are where navigation isnt` available yet."
This happens only when I want to calculate a route to a town in Moldova. For all other counttries for which I have downloaded maps it is working fine (Romania, Greece, Croatia, Austria, etc.)
Any ideas ?
Thanks in advance.

Updates for maps and one note came tumbling down the pipe when I checked this evening. Not sure what's changed - Probably more updates for the sake of updates. If your update settings for apps are set to manual like mine then head on over to the store to grab them

I was trying to set up skype and used my Microsoft account details as it suggested (which we use on our PC but have never used on the phone). I never did get skype app working, but after all that, the phone contact list has disappeared - it's just empty. The shortcut tiles to people on the home screen have also disappeared.
How to get it back? I got online and removed the phone from the Microsoft accounts list. But then it said to reset the phone, which I don't want to do as it warned that all pictures/data/personalisation would be removed?
How can I get the contacts list back?

A:Updated my OS to 10.0.14955.1000 on windows phone since thennot able to open apps

you have updated to windows insider fast ring which could break many apps and functionalities of your device. It is recommended to perform a hard reset and starting afresh without restoring the backup once on insider fast ring. this should fix your issue, if not then either roll back to public build using windows device recovery tool or wait for future builds.
also if you are incapable to performing a a hard reset now, simply reinstall those apps which are not working.

I turned my computer on, got the message "...updating do not turn off your computer...", it did it's thing, got the screen to enter my password, did that and it went south from there.
 
The error message starts out like this: "C:\windows\system32\config\systemprofile\Desktop refers to a location that is unavailable..."
It goes on to say that it may have been moved.
I do find that it did create a restore point just before updating.
Is it safe to restore it then?
 
There are 4 icons on the left and the "program bar" along the bottom.
 
I can access the programs and files from the "start" button so it looks like it's all still there.
 
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Your microphone is picking up what the speakers are playing (their voice). You have to use headphones so that their voice isn't fed back to them

Hi - I hope this is the right place for this, I did not see a Windows 8 Phone forum...

I have an HTC PMM23300 phone on TMobile. I've been trying for weeks to get it to sign in to my Microsoft account. But whenever I try, it tells me "Can't Connect. We're having a problem signing in. Make sure you have good reception. If you do, the problem may be on the other end. Wait a little while and try again."

Well... I've certainly tried waiting. I've tried resetting the phone. I've tried resetting the phone to factory settings in case it is in a "bad state" as Microsoft suggests... but still no go. It does it on WiFi and on cell data.

Anyone have any suggestions to help? I like the phone, but I'm ready to get rid of it and go back to an iPhone... things shouldn't be this hard.

I had to reset my Windows Phone. During setup I have to enter a Microsoft account (I used my @Outlook.com account). After setup finishes I see that my emails and calendar are completely synced. Perfect. But people (contacts) are not and the app requests to add an account. When I try to add the @Outlook.com account I get a message that the account already exists.
When I go to Settings | Email + Account and I click on the existing Microsoft Account I see Content to sync: Email. There are no other options to sync calendar, contacts or tasks.
How can I get the contacts of my @Outlook.com account to sync on my WIndows 8 Phone?
Thanks

Marc which phone model is this? Can you update the phone to 8.1? The newer OS might make it work

Hi,

I've recently changed my email provider so I changed my email and alias in my windows account.

My Xbox etc stopped working until I signed in with the new email address and now works perfectly.

My Nokia 920 has obviously also stopped connecting to the store/music and Xbox until I change to the new email address of the new windows account.

The problem is I just see how to change it, it doesn't seem to have an option to change sign in email address.

Am I being daft?

Thanks

Unfortunately, you have to RESET your phone to do it, so you might have to re-purchase any apps that are not added to the new MS account.

Microsoft working on 'Apollo+' update for Windows Phone 8

Microsoft is allegedly working on an update to Windows Phone, called Apollo+. This will be a minor '.1' update that will add some of the features missing in the initial release, such as support for VPN networks and OTA updates. It will also include bug fixes for issues such as Wi-Fi connection bug. Microsoft reportedly ran out of time for the initial release of Windows Phone 8, due to which they had to leave out features such as a notification center. You can expect to see these features roll out gradually in future updates for Windows Phone 8.

Good thing, hopefully, this update will arrive sooner than I was expecting.

In related news, WinPho 7.8 may arrive this week.

A Windows Phone app from Microsoft called Phone Insider has been discovered today. The app could possibly signal that the company is preparing to launch its rumored preview version of Windows 10 for smartphones.

The short description of the app simply says: "The Phone Insider application provides registered Windows Insiders the ability to receive pre-release OS updates on their phone, directly from Microsoft.

Microsoft reveals 23% of user upgrades to Windows Phone come from Android

Not a surprising number, considering instability + performance (and security) issues with many many android sets.
 

A:Microsoft reveals 23% of user upgrades to Windows Phone come from Android

I kindof just can't wrap my head around those numbers though. The Feature Phone to Smartphone upgrades are all great! But I wonder what kind of Android handsets the WP8 users are coming from. For instance I upgraded my Samsung Galaxy Ace (Crappy Android Phone) to an "Ativ S" (ridicilously cheap top of the line WP8 Phone). That said though, I really regret doing so because this far WP8 has been pretty much only a disappointment as far as I'm concerned. And I think anyone coming from a proper Android handset will be equally if not more disappointed then what I am.

Hardware wise my Ativ S is absolutely phenomenal value for the money. But decisions such as locking the Search button to "Bing Only" (who the **** uses bing over google, seriously?) or not supporting swiping keyboards is just really killing it.

I'm not saying it's all bad. I'm likely to keep my Ativ S for a couple of years and it serves me very well for the most importaint tasks, such as calendar usage/todo lists/notes/email/photos and all of that. But with the direction microsoft are taking I think it's really quite unlikely that I will ever buy another windows phone handset.

It's kindof like I have a really good phone, and I know it's really good. But I JUST DON'T LIKE IT.

Hi, how did you restore back to Win 8? - in the expected manner using the revert to previous OS within 30days?

Problem is if your files were deleted at some stage, the disk clusters holding them may well have been overwritten by all the disk activity.

To have any chance of recovering any of them, you needed to make sure there was as little or no disk write activity as possible.

First, if the files still exist and have not been deleted, without worrying exactly where they are, get a copy of locate32 (small. free)
Locate32 Download
on a USB flash drive in this case.

Use it to create a database- it will scan your entire disk drive- then search for one of your files.
The search takes a second or less.

If your files exist and have not been deleted, you will find them quickly.

If your files have been deleted, it's a question of probability as to whether they have been overwritten or not.
Recuva (free) is good... there are many commercial ones too.
You will need to run a scan - which will take a long time- and then you need to see if your files appear in the list.

I guess you never backed the files up or used disk imaging (which creates a complete backup from which you can completely recover your PC or extract files and is VERY strongly recommended to be use regularly. - Macrium Reflect, Aomei Backupper (both free). These are things to use in the future.

Suddenly, I can no longer access Microsoft Michael, Michelle or Sam in my XP Speech program! I keep getting an error message telling me that these voices "cannot be played" and that I "should either select another voice or an alternative Output Device". The thing is that I need these Microsoft English voices in order to hear English speech in my Microsoft Reader!

Hello Cheryl & Welcome to the forums.I am afraid you will need to do a repair install of MS Office.In order to do this you will need the install CD.Go to Add & Remove Programs and click on MS Office then click Remove and you will see the option to Repair, you will be instructed to put the CD in the Rom Drive.This is the only option I can see, maybe someone will have a better way, without the need for the CD and will chime in.I also used Tweak XP Pro and removed what were listed as unnecessary files, having read that these could easily be restored from the Recycle Bin if necessary. I then... ouch, dumb.... unthinkingly emptied the Recycle Bin.I am not sure how important these files were that you deleted and don't know if this will help.http://winsupportcenter.com/a/recover.htm

Hi maybe someone here can give me a hand, I had a problem with some malware and got it fixed by a great tech support agent. He had suggested I upgrade my java because it was outdated, since i upgraded im not able load java games into my phone anymore. I'm guessing there is a setting I have not changed yet. Does anyone know what I need to do?

A:RESOLVED: updated java now cant seem to load java games in my phone

Hi daimleramg,

it sounds like you need to update the path variable. It should be done in automatically during the Java installation but it doesn't always happen like that.

Please post back the following information:

- Right click the 'My Computer' icon on your Desktop and select Properties
- Select the Advanced tab and then click the Environment Variables button
- In the System Variable section, post back the contents of the following:
CLASSPATH
PATH
QTJAVA
- Or if you look at the information there, you should be able to edit the entries so they point to the new folder location...but if you get stuck, just let us know.

A:Transfer progress/data of the game asphalt 8, from windows 8 phone to windows 10 phone

Hi, isn't the data/progress registered to your facebook account?
If you are upgrading your phone I don't see why you would lose data/progress.

For several years I have been getting my meds via my computer. Now I can no longer access Caremark.I just get a message that 'they' are strenghting my digital security.I think this is Microsoft.I am running Explorer 9 on a desktop.Operating system, Vista premium.Someone wanted my credit card to allow me to upgrade my browser!What's happening to me?? Can you help?Ivan Copas

A:Microsoft is trying to force me to download an updated browser

Wait for SuperDave to respond, but for now - DO NOT give anyone your credit card number. There is no charge to update browsers and Microsoft would never ask for one anyway. If you're having an issue with IE you can try Firefox or Opera or Chrome, etc. They would be IN ADDITION to IE, you would not be replacing IE. You can have as many browsers on your system as you like and use whichever one(s) you like at any time.Having said all that, I'm not sure of the depth of the invasiveness into your system (whether it's just a phishing popup from someone trying to get you to bite or if you've actually been hacked to some extent). Again, Dave will help you when he logs on.

Hi I am running win 7 + Plantronics Head Phones.
Unfortunately I have lost the sound in my head phones.
Seems to coincide with downloading Skype, or request from programme to download a codec file for some reason.
How ever I have done a lot of searching and cannot find the setting to get the sound back.
Head phones are O'K

I had cut and pasted video files from my phone to a new folder on my pc. I got an error message so clicked undo (twice). The files have gone from my phone but they are not on the pc either. Can anyone help me get them back??? I have tried Recuva. It restored .tmp files which I can't do anything with.

A:Files lost during cut & paste from phone

there is other file programs to try as well.. try Data Recovery Wizard and then also try Ontrack

and then even Easuse recovery programs..
also google whatever phone you had and then undelete with your phone.. or google phone recovery.. etc..

those both should be able to see your files.. I'm not sure if they work on your phone.. but you need to try it..
also if you moved them to your hard drive.. then those file recovery programs should be able to grab them since they were at one point on your hard drive
the KEY to recovering files is not to use the drive where the files are located..
that may be difficult considering your windows is installed on the drive where the files you want to recover are.. thats why you need to grab those programs and try to recover them as soon as possible before too much is written to your hard drive..
some ways people do this is to create recovery cd/usb and boot into those cd/usb and then use the recovery program to search your hard drive.. some recovery programs even make the cd/usb for you..

I think Data Recovery Wizard found most of my stuff when I had a program.. I like that program.

I'm sure that there must be an app that prevents your phone changing screen as you pass it from one person to another. Even the slightest touch on the screen as you pass the phone seems to change it back to a previous screen or activates Cortana. HELP PLEASE!
