I have a Nokia Lumia 635 phone. I used to be able to block phone numbers but the feature disappeared that I am no longer able too. I really like to know how to get the block phone number feature to toil again? I appreciate your response.
i want to download apps but they tell me to set up my family but no one uses a Windows phone and i dont know what to do or i should stop off using Windows phone
i signed in but still they do not allow me to download apps
when I use my phone the screen goes blank why
If I lock my phone with the “Find my Phone” app, will my alarms still ring?
A bit of context:
My coworker locked the closet my phone is in and I forgot my keys. I have an alarm set that is just annoying to get me out of bed. Now that alarm will ring Monday and another coworker without a key to the closet will be around when it starts. Now I’m looking
for a way to either drain the battery or just close down off the alarms. Will the locking mechanism from “Find my phone” be enough for that?
I recently purchased a HP Laptop with Windows 10 Home edition on Thanks Giving Day. The Laptop was pre-installed with McAfee judgment software, worked for a month and expired. Since McAfee expired after a month of my Windows 10 Activation, I installed AVG Antivirus
free rendering in its place. However, I enabled Windows defender to protect my PC before installing the AVG Anti Germ. Since I am a Microsoft Skill Heap developer, I admired Microsoft and preferred Microsoft Products.
Two days back, that is on Jan 06, 2017, I found a perplexing behavior in my Laptop. The order was operating on its own. The key pad, link with screen and key board commands were hardly running. Immediately I disconnected my WiFi, uninstalled AVG Antivirus and
performed a full scan of my machine with Windows Defender. The Windows Defender did not detect any germ as such apparently in the film and was displaying – “PC standing: Protected” message. This schedule luckily I was able to capture the behavior using my Android
Phone. I am input those videos here for your reference using the following
A month before the Thanks Giving Day, I experienced exactly same behavior in my Nokia Windows 8.1 Phone as well. It also used to open my Contacts list and make phone calls or sometimes even disconnect the phone call I am chitchat. It used to merge the contacts.
Whenever such a behavior occurred in my phone, the device did not respond to my commands. The only option I had was to flog of the Phone and WiFi. Then after sometime same behavior used to put on view up occasionally. When the device was quiet, I tried resetting
the phone to its original factory scenery majestic. Even that attempt did not act. Soon after I logged in with my Microsoft Account, the device used to act on its own again. In fact, I tried to reset my Phone around 4 to 5 times but nothing worked. I even tried
cleaning the temporary worker data. Some times it is dormant and some times it is active. I Binged around and read few articles that Windows Phone is a Germ Proof and hence no anti germ would be available in the Windows Pile Up. But in my case, I eagerly felt that my
device was attacked and felt sad since Microsoft did not care to provide a protection to its customers. This is the reason which forced me to flog to an Android Phone and its affordability. Otherwise, I would have opted for IPhone.
Can anyone please help me resolve this issue. Will this be covered under warranty. Since, I am suspecting it as a some kind of germ attack/hack, do I need to reinstall my Laptop or return the device. I am not sure, if this attack is propagating through
Microsoft Account data sync across devices (The reason for suspecting Microsoft Account is that, the latest advancements enabled the devices to sync the addict data across devices. Since I logged into my new Laptop with same Account which I used for my old Windows
Phone, did the germ propagated using this feature) or through WhatsApp.
Thanking you in Advance.
When I was background up my wife’s new Lumia 640 I mistakenly used my Microsoft account log-in and now her phone contacts exhibit up on my phone, when I delete them from my phone they disappear from hers also.
I should have logged in her Microsoft account when I first set up her phone.
HOW do I remove her phone from my Microsoft account and log her phone into her Microsoft account ?
I saw a web page at “account.microsoft.com/devices” that lists all the devices on my Microsoft account, including her phone, each phone device has a link that says
“Remove Phone” …….if I click on that will it remove her phone from my Microsoft account
and THEN will her phone then give me the option under email+accounts to “add an account” and choose Microsoft account and log in with her Microsoft account info ?
I am hoping this method will creation as I want to avoid a factory reset on her phone and then have to restore all the photos, settings, files, contacts, apps, ect from scratch.
Thanks in advance for any help !

Recently (about 2 month or so), the Whatsapp would not notify any message received(delivered), I have to manually launch the App and put off for a few seconds then the messages early to load and those messages were sent to me a while ago (some 2-3 hours,
because I didn’t launch the App to check), I double check all my phone settings ie: notification, lockscreen, action center…etc they all seems to be correct.
I am wondering if anyone has a analogous problem with Nokia Phone with Windows 8.1 OS and all Apps’ updated? its quite annoying and also defect the purpose of having “instant messaging” App.
Appreciate any help.
I have a Windows 8.1 Nokia Lumia 635. In the past, I must have told it not to remember where I lived which there locate uses to pin you to the closest location. Now I’d like to reverse this. Is this stored somewhere in my phone where I can render null and void it by deleting
something or how can I fix this thing?
I’ve searched my entire phone Settings and come up empty with how to do this. I also searched their locate and it doesn’t give me any option.
I did just click on this same email on my computer and it popped a line down at the bottom lacking to ‘track my location’. But that will be one my computer at home. I wonder if it will do the same from my phone and fix this issue when I sight that locate on
Here’s the locate it sent me to. I guess I should possibly block out some of it so that anyone who views this can’t mess with my own personal location or anything. But I can’t see anything personal in this other than their location that I must have marked
as my Favorite at some point in the past:
I am very disappointed with the recent performance of my windows phone [Lumia 950XL]. My phone gets pack up on its own and doesn’t get started even on my pressing of power button. In order to change it on I have to remove and reinsert the battery. After

Apart for hard/soft reset if Microsoft has implication pls pls let me know.
Apart from abnormal pack up of device I had raised few questions earlier too for which I received the answer as formatting .
I request Microsoft to release some patch to fix these problems. Pls let me know if any more info is required from my end but please help me in getting the issue resolved.
My phone updated but i can no longer access the internet or WhatsApp. It tries to launch but goes back to the home screen. Any advice would be appreciated. Read More

My Nokia Lumia 1520 recently had some battery issues where it would lock up off randomly if I was doing too much on it, regardless of it’s actual battery life. This most recent attempt to aim it on after it switched off has left it dead. When I plug it in
I get nothing, no flashing windows precursor, no nothing. This is the charger that came with the phone so I’m not sure what I’m assumed to do. I really like the phone and don’t want to have to beat. Read More

at my house. All other devices in the house are effective so I know it is no issue with the router.
the other information also says to do an bring up to date of the phone but yet again I cannot do that without WiFi or coverage.
I have completed a subtle reset and still not effective, comes up with the message “can’t connect the WiFi network dodo didn’t respond. Try again later. Close.”
please help me labour out out what to do as I am very forlorn that this is the only care for provided, a incompetent phone that is a glorified alarm clock as that is all I can use it for at the moment

I have had this phone for 2 years and it has only been used for texting and seminar. The original, primary email account that was set up when I bought the phone is a Microsoft Outlook account. I have never once used this account for transfer or receiving emails
or for any other reason. I have never downloaded or purchased any apps on this phone. Now, 2 years later, I need to put some apps on this phone and can’t purchase any. Every era I try, a dialogue box pops up requesting me to input the password for this old, original
primary account. I have no idea what the password is. I tried to retrieve it several times by going through a security questionnaire but can’t get through to the end to get verified because I can only answer the questions pertaining to my personal info and
not all of the questions regarding the other passwords, purchases and current/past emails attached to this old account (because obviously there haven’t been any!)
I tried deleting the account but it won’t let me. The only option available is “sync” not “delete”. Confuse because the delete option is available on the other email acct on this phone. I am assuming it has to do with this being the primary acct but not
sure. Anyway, can someone please help march me through what steps I need to take to get this off my phone so I can set up a different primary account? I am so frustrated. Been trying to resolve this for several hours now……
When I logged into Microsoft it asked whether to transmit a code to my email address or to my phone. The phone number is not my current phone. I have seen multiple postings asking the same question. “How do I change the phone number associated with my account”,
but I have yet to see an answer.
Can someone provide a straight list of steps to do this?
The category is wound, but there was no category listed for Microsoft account

Ability to default opt-in/yes to "Allow Screen Projection" on Windows Phone (Nokia Lumia 530 Dual SIM)?
Hello Microsoft Community,
I am wondering if it’s possible to force a Windows Phone (in my case a Nokia Lumia 530 Dual SIM) to always allow screen projection. In other words, I would like to bypass the confirmation prompt which appears on my mobile device when I run Project My Screen
on the Windows machine hosting the USB connection to my Windows Phone.
My manipulation scenario is that I am attempting to examination my Windows Phone device from another physical location, and it is tedious/not always possible to have someone click on this prompt on the Device-under-Examination.
Thank you in advance!

I have a Lumia 640 with Windows Phone 10 OS and lets just say something happened and I need to restore a backup.
I want to know 2 things:
- How do I restore a backup.
- How can I change the backup to an older one.
For 1. I want to know the steps I need to take to restore a backup because most customs I found on the internet are focused on users that want to conveying to a new phone. I think I need to reset my phone and it will ask me if I want to restore from a backup
but here comes the 2.
I accidentally pressed “Back up now” after the craze that happened and I believe that overwrote my good backup. My good backup was taken automatically on 18 December (the recent past) and I accidentally made another backup with all the substance broken on 19 December
(now). So I want the older backup, not the newest.
Please reply ASAP. I can only use my phone as a plain phone and not as an actual Stylish Phone until I get this done.
Is it possible to uninstall MS Edge from a windows 10 Mobile?
I have a windows phone 8.1 and it has been operational excellently with my online music synced with my OneDrive. Starting the recent past I have been getting a message “sorry we can’t play this file on your phone error code 80172008 “
Can someone please tell me what is improper and how I can fix it. Please do not tell me I need to reset my phone. 😛
Also, OneDrive music directly from OneDrive mechanism like a champ. When I select “sync my collection” it takes a while but does it. When I click “Xbox Music account settings” it loads the browser, but I am met with a “an Error has occurred” dialog box.
Yeah, no kidding. 😛 😛 😛
I’ve tried logging in and out of the app. I’ve also looked to uninstall the app, but apparently that isn’t possible. Also meaning noting is that the error only occurs for streaming music. I am able to play music that is saved to my phone. I can also save
new music to my phone and play that fine, too. So this appears to be exclusively for the streaming music scenario.
Thank you for any joist you can provide!

with a XAP file.
The issue is that the OneDrive app appears in the local apps but the install button is grayed out.
Any ideas would be appreciated. Thank you!
I’ve been using my PC without issue for a day. This morning, I was able to go online without a problem. Returning after vocation, I could not connect to my wifi router. I keep getting an error message that it cannot connect to this network. I was able
to connect both my phone and my laptop to the router. I was able to connect my PC to the phone as a hotspot using my regular calling plan. And now, I am on my home internet connection using the phone as a go-between hotspot.
I am on an older PC with a Belkin wireless adapter. I’m using Windows 10. The indication between the router and the PC is fanatical (five bars). It can read my home network fine. It just doesn’t want to connect unless I use my phone as a go-between.
Any suggestions? This just doesn’t make feel to me.
