Q: Bitlocker Lumia 640xl windows 10 what in the actual F***. Really microsoft?

I got locked out of my phone because i turned it off. And without any warning, the bitlocker screen has locked me out. I am really pissed off now. This isn't the first time us windows phone users have had a complaint. Now you are really asking us to buy phones from other companies.

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.)

Can you pair a Bluetooth mouse with a Lumia 640XL? I use remote desktop and TeamViewer quite a bit. I'd like to be able to pair a mouse with my phone and mirror it to my tv. Sort of a poor mans continuum. Will that work? And if so, how do you do it? I have a Bluetooth mouse but I can't get any device to recognize it without the dongle that came with it.

Recently, i tried to turn my phone on, and the bitlock message appeared, and i can't get rid of it.
The problem is i can't solve it via USB recovery tool because the USB port is not working for some reason, it is probably broken.

Front camera on my Lumia 640XL is not working. I thought it is just bug, because I've noticed it like two months ago, few days after anniversary update rolled out. I hoped that next updates will make it work again, but problem persisted so I've tried hard reset. No success.
When I try to switch between rear and front camera it will freeze on black screen, I can only see buttons for take photo, settings, etc. It doesn't work in any app - standard Camera app, Skype, Messenger - black screen everywhere.
Is there something else I can try or is it definitely hw problem and the fact it happend after AU is just coincidence?

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.

Microsoft downplays Windows BitLocker attack threat: Microsoft dismissed recently-disclosed threats to its BitLocker disk-encryption technology as "relatively low risk," noting that attackers must not only have physical access to a targeted PC, but must manipulate the machine two separate times.

The company's move was prompted by a paper published by five German researchers?. In the paper,the researchers spelled out multiple attack scenarios criminals could use to access filesprotected by BitLocker. ? Microsoft scoffed at [the] scenarios.

"This sort oftargeted attack poses a relatively low risk to folks who use BitLocker in the real world," said Paul Cooke, a senior director at Microsoft who looks after the operating system's security features.

In a post to the Windows Security blog, Cooke acknowledged that the?researchers were right?[but] downplayed the threatand argued that that research broke no new ground.

Date: 8 December

Maybe you can start in safemode.

Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.
Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.
When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER.

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? Please contact me.

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?

A:Microsoft Outsourcing Lumia as of October 1st?

I'm assuming from that information that some third-party repair service is going to be taking over for Lumia service and stuff.
I'm sure something like Asurion is to be expected.

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?

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.

However, 'devices' show 1 'real' PC (n?t the one with the retail W10 version, but the one running on an upgrade) and 3 VM's.

I assume it isn't but if at all possible..., how do I get that in sync with what I am actually using.
