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.)

Over the course of the last 2 or so weeks it seems most if not all of our users have been affected by their email stopping syncing on their phones. On the phone it asks them ?fix? the problem and directs them to the login page to re-enter the password, if they enter their current password it seems to fix the problem but the email doesn?t sync and the ?fix? box appears again. Looking to resolve the issue I noticed that there were duplicate work email accounts and also sometimes duplicated Outlook & Live accounts under the ?accounts used by other apps? section.
If I removed the duplicate work account and re-entered the password that resolved the problem but this wasn?t always the case, sometimes the account had to be removed fully and added again.
Has anyone else experienced this?

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.

Thanks in advance!

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.

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

Try this method to "jumpstart" the bridge between mother and daughter boards: 1520.3 airplane mode stuck Look here for how replacing the daughterboard corrects the issue: Lumia 1520 stuck in airplane mode?

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.)

I made several attempts to roll back my Lumia 1020 to Windows 8.1 from Windows 10 using the latest (updated - 2.1.2) Windows Phone Recovery Tool but I am unable to roll back. The Windows Phone recovery tool gives me the following error message "Package not available for this phone". I have installed the latest Windows 10 Build 10.0.10536.1004 on my phone. I reset my phone also from Settings->About->Reset your phone before rolling back to Windows 8.1 using the Windows Phone Recovery Tool. Can someone help me in rolling back to Windows 8.1?

A:Windows 8.1 doesn't detect Windows Phone (Lumia 1020)

Welcome to the forum sukle.

Can't really help with your problem but a few ideas while you wait for one of the experts to come along and help.

Is your phone completely up to date ? Do you have the 8.1 update on your phone ?

I only have the Lumia 520, I have no problems with this on my 8.1 Update 1 Asus Notebook, I've just plugged it in so of course it's charging, usually charge through the mains adapter so very rarely plug it into the computer as everything can be done from the phone.

Sorry I can't help but I'm sure someone will be along soon to help you out.

I already happened several times, but today's "update" finally did it. The phone is rolling in a loop, settings wheels, then some progress, then battery empty sign then battery sign with a question mark (note that the battery was full!).
Tried the following:
1) Hard reset using key combo - DID NOT WORK
2) Windows Device Recovery Tool - DID NOT FIND THE PHONE, COULD NOT CONNECT TO IT
The phone keep rebooting in a loop which never stops. None of the methods above worked. The phone is finally dead.
As much as I love Windows Phone, more I hate Microsoft now. In fact, these rubbish builds have been killing my phone, but now finally I cannot recover it any more.
So dear Microsoft, I'm ready to sue you. That's the least I can do. About the rest I will talk to my lawyer. See you soon!
