Using a lumia 1520. Considering an upgrade but unsure of the state of windows 10 mobile.

Q: Using a lumia 1520. Considering an upgrade but unsure of the state of windows 10 mobile.

My trusty Nokia Lumia 1520 has served me well since launch. But now, with a cracked screen and a dying battery I am in need of an upgrade. I see prices of the Lumia 950 xl dropping and I am wondering if the OS is still viable? And even if it is, would be be best to get this model or an alternative? Or even wait for the fabled Surface Phone?

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.)

please tell me windows 10 mobile on lumia 640 xl battery life can improve than windows phone 8.1

A:lumia 640 xl windows phone 8.1 vs lumia 640 xl windows 10 mobile which os give great battery life?

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.

I recently updated my Lumia 1520 to the official w10 version. But as soon as I did that my battery life has been so short that it does not last three hours. Sometimes it can go off even when the phone is saying there is 80 percent power. Then when charging, it can go from 40 to hundred percent just like that. I have tried to hard reset it twice, but that has not been effective. I also did the battery callibration thing, but my phone still eads powere percentage wrongly. My 8.1 was working flawlessly before.
Is it a microsoft thing, or something is wrong with my phone? I have to say I do like the w10 update,but this issue with the battery is killing me

Hi there. Which flavour of W10M are you running? Did you just do the standard upgrade from 8.1? The advice of many others, and the standard reply would be to do a hard reset. This will allow the software a clean slate for installation, and eliminate any incompatible elements left by 8.1. It is an unfortunate fact that this is common place.
If you are up for it, go to settings > About > reset your phone. The other advice often given is not to restore from a back up. Any apps you have will be in store, and emails and texts, should be restored when you sign in. You could restore from a back up and see how it goes, but any issues will have your resetting again.
Hope that helps, and why not join the forums? There is a dedicated thread for the 1520, and plenty of info regarding updates etc. Unless you are brave, stick with the release software as it's pretty stable, and the 1520 absolutely rocks on it. If you think 8.1 was visually good on 8.1, just wait until you get 10 running properly!

As i read in the Microsoft forums, about the similar issue i have come to the conclusion that it is an hardware issue and should not be confused with the software.
i hereby quote 93tid ( Microsoft Forums Community Moderator)
" The 1520 suffers from a lot of screen problems due to lower quality components as a result of cost cutting. In order to eliminate any potential software causes you can first try performing a hard reset from settings > about > reset my phone. If that does not help, go for a full firmware reinstall using the Nokia Software Recovery Tool . If the problem persists, take it to a Nokia Care facility for inspection/repair."
Following his steps you should have a visit to nokia care or the one providing authorized service in your area.

Windows 10 Mobile 10.0.14393.105
On every build of Windows 10 Mobile so far if I am listening to music via blue tooth and then receive a call, blue tooth hangs after the call is ended. I cannot get music to resume playing and end up either waiting 5 minutes or rebooting the phone.
Note the the bluetooth shortcut in action centre is unresponsive during the 5 minute period. This worked fine with version 8.1.
Does anyone know of a fix. I recently did a hard reset to fix a Hey Cortana problem.

A:Windows 10 Mobile Bluetooth problem on Nokia 1520

Hi, it may be worth getting on the fast ring (Insider builds) and getting the latest update.
Version 14905.1000 includes 'Fixed an issue resulting in music not resuming after a call was finished, if Turn-by-Turn directions were being read out from the Maps app when the phone call came in.'
It may be worth trying to solve your issue.

The problem with my Lumia is that for some reason it won't connect 1520 Lumia WiFi to the private network in the hostel where I currently am Previously every month in order to use the WiFi you were given a new username and password and then the Salvation Army menu would appear in IE and fill out the details there and there was no problem Every time I try to connect in WiFi it would automatically take WiFi Lumia 1520 me to the menu in IE mentioned previously Now it goes to secure password page and enter the password without the username and keeps saying renter password without even to try the password I have connected to other free WiFi hot spots with no problem it just appears to be the Salvation Army one and yes I have asked other residents with Lumia phones and other manufacturers and have not come across this problem I also tried using a random password but only characters long and it looks as if it is trying to use it nut then reverts back to the re-enter password Unfortunately I have also tried the Hard Reset with no joy and used several usernames and passwords given to me all resulting in the same problem Any suggestions would be much appreciated

So I have a Lumia 1520. And all the time it seems like I'm playing a game, or typing, or just on the home screen when the screen seems to be trapped tapped at random places also meaning that the 3 hardware keys at the bottom of the phone don't respond either. Only way to fix it is to lock the phone and then unlock it but then the ghost touches could come back at any minute. Heck even typing this in on my phone is proving to be hell! My question is, is this a hardware issue or something that will be fixed with the Lumia cyan update (and is therefore a known issue). Any help would be appreciated as I just got this phone a couple of days back. So it would probably be easy to fix it under warranty.

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.

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.

I just tried reverting to an earlier version of windows 10 mobile, and it failed halfway through. Now my phone boots to this square icon thing and does nothing. When I hold down the power button as per the reset instructions, the phone takes about 20 seconds to turn off. It reboots to the square icon. The instructions then say to hold down the volume down button, but after 2 minutes it has not responded.
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

They do that to direct you to Microsoft Camera. Even if you installed it, it would direct you to it.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Just upgraded to windows 10 mobile. Now calendar, contacts, and mail cannot see Microsoft account. The account is listed correctly in phone settings, but not in mail, calendar, and contact settings.

A:Windows 10 mobile upgrade broke calendar

Go to the Store, and update all of the apps. You should see an update for Outlook Calendar. If you'll like, you can just update that one only.

I have downloaded Windows 10 Pro,version 1511,10586 but cannot instal.  I am told that Windows Steady State is not compatible and it should be uninstalled.  When I click on Uninstall I am informed that I must do this myself.  However, WSS
is not listed in programs in Control Panel and I am at a loss as to how I can uninstall or where and how to find WSS.  Please help. Papi J.

Hi. A good place to start is by typing cleanmgr.exe in the start menu and hit enter. Use that to delete all it finds.

If you aren't going to use hibernation, then open an elevated command prompt. Copy and paste the following then hit enter:


Code:
powercfg -h off

A:Unsure on W7 from XP upgrade

Not entirely sure I follow you but:

The Windows 7 upgrade install disc is an independent animal and does not need to know anything about XP whatsoever. You are entitled to it because you have a qualifying OS disc. (Windows XP). XP does not have to be installed. The Windows 7 install doesn't have to "verify" anything except that you have qualifying hardware and a valid key.

If you leave the XP drive connected, you will end up with a traditional dual boot as far as I know. You don't want that.

So disconnect the XP drive first, before starting anything. Have the Win 7 install disc in the DVD drive.

Start up, go immediately to BIOS with appropriate key, set boot order to DVD first. Save changes and boot from DVD. Choose custom install early in the process. Choose "drive options/advanced" a few screens later when you see the partition screen. At the next screen you would delete all partitions and create at least 1 new one for C of maybe 50 or 60 GB. Mark it active and install 7. Get all Windows updates, install antivirus, and look in disk management to confirm partitions are healthy and recognized. Make more partitions if needed.

When you are satisfied Win 7 is operating OK independently, you can worry about reconnecting the XP drive.

Let others verify this as I am not a dual boot expert, but this is my understanding based on your intentions.

You have a VIA Chipset (KT400A). I'm assuming you have Windows XP - Version 5.10a. You will need to reinstall the video card drivers after installing these.

I'm upgrading my parents PC and am having trouble finding the right RAM for it. I've identified the motherboard as a Intel Pentium 4 Socket 423 Monterrey Gateway. A direct link of the exact motherboard is here http://www.logicalplus.com/inpe4so423mo.html

I've already made the mistake of ordering the wrong RAM once due to the Crucial PC scanner incorrectly identifying the motherboard! I know the PC takes RDRAM and that it currently has 2x 128mb already in it with the other slots filled with CRIMMS.

Any advice would be great
 

A:Solved: Unsure of RAM upgrade for my motherboard....

You should be going be the Gateway model of the whole system rather then the just the motherboard if you can. Do you know the model of the system? Other then that it looks like each slot will support a 512MB module, installed in pairs. PC600 and PC800 are supported speeds.

Hello,

I'm really new to the tech/ computer world, and know next to nothing about graphics cards. I was wondering if someone could help me figure out what graphics card I can upgrade my computer to (if I can upgrade at all) I was wanting to buy the new Sims 4 game, but after having played a very slow and choppy Sims 3 for years on this computer, I'm ready to actually play a game smoothly without it freezing all the time.

Here's what computer I have:
Compaq Presario PC SR5601P
Processor: AMD Athlon X2 4400
Dual-Core Processor
Memory: 1 GB
Hard drive: 250 GB
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE Graphics
Windows Vista SP 1

Thanks!
 

A:Unsure of what graphics card my computer can upgrade to

Sims 4 System Requirements & your PC system results

For Sims 4 according to the link above, your CPU GPU and memory is lacking for even the minimum system specs. We can recommend a GPU, but that's not all you need if you plan on playing Sims 4. And if you get a stronger GPU, chances are you will also need a stronger PSU. If 300W's is all you have for power, you are limited to sub $100 graphic cards. Which would be fine for Sims 4, but then you also have a CPU and memory that needs upgrading.

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!
