Preferred Solution: Where, on a Lumia 650, can i find contacts imported from other microsoft 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.)

I recently got a new Lumia 640 phone to replace my old Lumia 735. The transfer worked fine with most things working as normal and data being there on the new phone.
I have only discovered that One Note while being on the new phone has none of my data in it.
The data is on my computer.
How do I get the One Note data to come into the new phone

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,
As I left my previous employer, the IT manager exported my contacts into a .pst file. I used Outlook 2003 at work. When I go to import the file at home (also OL '03), it comes in as a personal folder (email folder?) and is empty. The file itself is ~250k so I know it's not empty. How can I import my contacts into Outlook on my home computer?

Thanks,

Hi,

I just imported my contacts from Outlook 2003 into Outlook 2007. I have 3-5 sub-folders under contacts, with some of those sub-folders having multiple sub-folders. I exported the contact folder including subfolders from Outlook 2003 as a .pst file and imported that file in Outlook 2007 the same way.

Outlook set up the imported folders just as they had been in Outlook 2003. The problem is that when I search for a contact in either the mail view or the contact view I immediately receive a message 'contact not found'. This happens so quickly and in every case that I believe the search engine is not actually searching the contacts folders and subfolders which I imported, but is searching the original contacts folder created at installation of Outlook 2007. Is this correct? Can someone tell me how to get my imported contact folders integrated into the system so that all functions (search, etc) work on them?

Thanks

About the time my husband left his old job we got our new Windows 7 laptop, purchased and installed Office 2010, including Outlook. Since his new job is in the same industry, he wanted to "bring home" his Outlook contacts. He exported his contacts at work (PST file) to a jump drive. I imported these to our new Outlook. Little did I realize just how many contacts he had!

As I am thinking about getting a new cell phone to sync with Outlook, I really don't want to carry around his business contacts with me! I think I will just save his PST file until he really needs it.

Now... how can I remove his contacts I imported? If necessary I could "empty" all my contacts (if that's possible to do) and re-export/re-import my personal contacts from my old laptop.

So glad to find this Windows 7 forum! Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks,
Lisa

Hi Lisa

Welcome to Seven Forums

You could try the following from Office Support:

Remove an address book

Click the File tab.
Click Account Settings, and then click Account Settings.

On the Address Books tab, click the address book that you want to remove, and then click Remove.

Hope this helps in some way

I'd installed Spybot to remove adware and/or possible keyloggers then I uninstalled it after removing what it deemed to be adware because my computer was lagging a serious amount. Evidently it removed a vital piece of Groove 2007 software and I had to jump through many many hoops to get Groove and Office 2007 working.

They seem to be working now but I am unable to see a specific contact as online when they are. I can see other contacts in the Public Directory and my groove account on my desktop, just not the contact I need.

Hi, I recently replaced my dying Nokia Lumia 735 with a Microsoft Lumia 640. Everything worked perfectly fine on the Lumia 735 and changes in Contacts synced automatically between the phone to computer and vice versa. I did however make it my practice to generally make changes on the phone first. Because of the Microsoft Account the change over worked fine. However in an exercise addressing the issue of Contact names no longer being displayed when calls come in I had reason to make changes to some phone number formats. I made these changes on the phone. Now three days activity later I am noticing that the changes have not shown up on my computer contacts. All my email accounts are working fine.

Hi Gazellig

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Look in the Contacts folder, do you see the Imported information there?
You may need to enable the Contacts folder to show as an e-mail Address Book.

Right click on the Contacts folder,
Properties > Outlook Address Book tab
Place a check mark in: Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book
Apply, OK to save and close.

See if it now appears in the Address Book.

Let us know if that works for you or not.

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.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I've tried adding the Microsoft account, turning the phone on and off again and had no luck! 1 - which windows 10 build you got? I own a 650 too
2 - try a soft reset not (hold power 12 secs)
3 - did you make all updates? Go to Store -> hamburger -> downlaods-> check. Contacts app was updated few days ago

I recently imported all of my personal folders containing email from my old computer to this one (Windows 8).  I used Microsoft Office Outlook for both computers.  2 days ago, Windows did an automatic update, and all of my personal folders with the email they contained are gone.  I've done a search for *.pst file and nothing shows up.  How can I retrieve these emails?

A:Can't find imported pst files for MS Office Outlook

Hello 1alh1,
 
Try looking in C:---> Users---->yourname---->AppData---->local---->Microsoft---->Outlook. If can't see AppData you will need to change Folder Options to show hidden files, folders, and drives.

They just seemed to disappear overnight.
I have logged onto Outlook.com and the contacts are still there in the People Hub.
I have also checked on my Microsoft Surface and my old Lumia 920 and both has the full set of contacts.
Also I checked the Filter options, but nothing appears to be worng
For some reason they have physically disappeared on my 950. I have tried a soft reset etc.
In the Setting the Outlook Account seems to be permanently "Synchronising".
Any ideas?

You did well resetting, but most important is changing ALL paswords, best via pc, and later in the phone.

You can not. The developer, Niantic Labs, has not written it for windows 10 or 8.1, and they have locked it down so 3rd party apps don't work. You may never be able too it just depends if the developer decides to put it on Windows.

A:Should I migrate from iPhone to Windows Phone 10 (Lumia 930)?

1. I would not recommend make the switch but it sounds like you're keeping your iPhone around which should be fine.
I would spend even less on Windows though given MS's disinterest, maybe a nice Lumia 640 will work.
2. Depending on where your contacts are stored, you should be able to sync them with Windows Phone. (whether by Gmail, Outlook or iCloud, those can be added to W10M.)

Never mind put the tiles back.
Then found those contacts had been doubled or even quadrupled and had to link them all to get the messages etc.
