How To Save a Contact From SMS/Phone No in Windows 10 Mobile

Q: How To Save a Contact From SMS/Phone No in Windows 10 Mobile

If you receive an SMS from a new phone number or if you manually dial a phone number, it doesn't appear that you can save the number to your contacts list as a new contact. With SMS, if you click on the phone number you received the SMS from and then the save icon (the only option available) it just opens the People app, making it seem like it's disappeared somewhere. With the phone dialer, again if you hit the save icon, it just throws you into the People app leaving the user to wonder where it's disappeared to.

I'm not entirely sure why Microsoft designed it this way as it pretty rubbish, however it is possible to save numbers. After hitting the save button, you then need to click the '+' symbol in the People app as if creating a new contact from scratch. Why it doesn't just go straight to the 'New Outlook Contact' Screen is beyond me, as that would be the most logical and user-friendly way to do it.

A client had a virus which they activated through an email with a (supposed) link to a dropbox file.
He checks his email (hotmail) on Outlook.com on a Win7 laptop.
Using his laptop, when reading the mail, by clicking the link it sent out the same message to his contacts (though with a slightly different landing page that had been modified when compared to the original link). 
There were no messages saved in "Sent" items.
The laptop had been cleaned by the client using MBAM. He then ran ESET online scanner.
Since receiving it I have run Rkill and then SAS and Bitdefender on it with none of them showing any infections.
Since this issue occurred his contacts on his phone have been showing strange links to each other - as if the "link" contacts functionality was used in some way to create distribution lists. It also mean's when someone rings him he sees different names coming up on his display. The phone is a Windows Nokia phone.
When I review the contacts through outlook.com I see no linkage.
I was wondering if there has this been any instances of this being seen before ?
Do the gurus of this site think this is a possible side effect?
I can send the links to the dodgy site - just don't want to include it in case someone clicks it by mistake.

Not a good idea to put your email address in posts unless you enjoy bots sending you all kind of spam email.

What you are trying to do is called Tethering. Most cell phone providers do have this option but I believe technically you have to pay for it. There are hacks around it though. I know how to do it on my Palm not sure about windows mobile.
I would google search for: htc touch tethering
You will get lots of hits.

I offer this post in the hope that it may help others in the same situation.

I had WMDC working well with my TYTN (HTC Hermes) but, having moved to an HTC Touch Pro 2, I found that the connecting and syncing was very unreliable. Two days ago WMDC started saying "error" instead of connecting to my phone.

I uninstalled WMDC, and then reinstalled 3 or 4 times - no go. I read everything I could on the issue (and there is plenty of it ) in this forum, and other places. After several frustrating hours, I hit the jackpot - I am only sorry I cannot remember where.

I uninstalled WMDC and WMDC update with Revo uninstaller, and reinstalled them - bingo ! It is reasonably clear to me that Revo does a better job at cleaning out registry entries than Windows uninstaller, certainly in this case. I was so grateful to Revo that I bought the package (special offer at the moment).

I sincerely hope this helps other searchers for a solution to this problem.

Whether I stick with a Windows phone, long term, is a different issue!

A:Windows Mobile Device Centre not responding to new phone.

Windows uninstaller only does what the program's uninstaller tells it to do.
I liked the older uninstalls where you could manually select every single component of a program and remove it completely.

Glad you fixed your problem.

I am running a Windows Vista Ultimate 64 system, and I just upgraded my cell phone to an HTC Pure (Win Mobile 6.1) from AT&T to replace my AT&T Tilt (Win Mobile 6.0). The Tilt was synching just fine with my PC.

I deleted the old pairing in Vista and the new phone shows up and I set up the configuration to load my Outlook 2007 Contacts, Calendar and Notes. I hit synch, and I get all of the appropriate messages, but NOTHING shows up on my new phone . . . yet I get a message that synchronization was successful. As far as I can tell -- every setting is correct on both devices.

The Tilt was transferred from an older PC running XPPro. Does anybody think the answer might be going to the older PC and doing the first synchronization there first?

I have found several instances of similar problems with various makes and models of mobile phones and the last two or three iterations of Windows Mobile, but I cannot find a single answer where the person with the problem hasn't come back and posted the problem recurred after finding what they thought was "the answer."

Thanks for ideas.

The SSD in my carbon x1 6th dead within a year. I sent it to lenovo asking them to fix it. This took two weeks.  After I received it, I found the windows they installed is NOT the orginial windows, and it's NOT activiated! I tried to call the customer sevice for a product key. The lady asked me to ship it back. I told her that reinstall the windows will cause the loss of all the software I installed - a lot are license associated and expensive. I asked if they can just give me the product key or if they can pay the software I got, I'm fine to ship it back. The lady just hang off my phone.....twice..... I'm very upset with the customer service. Is there a way to get contact with her upper manager and solve this issue? Many thanks!

Was seamless until a few days ago when trying to edit a contact on Outlook it would not allow me to save it
Error message was "Your changes cannot be saved because you don't have permission to modify some or all of the items in this folder. Do you want to save a copy of the item in the default

I can edit the contact on iphone and it updates though to Outlook on desktop.

Someone installed Windows Live Mail on a new (used) computer, then imported my contact file (.cvs format) from my old computer where I was using Vista 64bit. This was done from within windows live mail option.

The import works but every time I reboot the contacts disappear from Windows Live Mail and I have to import again which takes hours.

I tried importing via hotmail page but it keeps timing out.



A:Windows Live Mail Contact List (.cvs) will not save

This is a common problem,

You will have to "add" those contacts manually afetr performing an import.

To do this,

Click on Tools > Options > then click on Privacy,

Right click on each contact and click add.

Hello i have a laptop, with Network & Modem i want to connet to the internet using my Nokia 5110 what do i need and what do i do or is it even possiable p.s i have a Nokia 5110 Data Cable (Sirial)

Thanks for any replys!

A:Mobile Internet using mobile phone

a serial data cable can't connect to the internet.
First of all you need a data capable phone which I don't think the 5110 can.

You need a 6210 or 7110 etc more info on nokia website

Even with data phone I've never heard of a suitable cable but you can connect using infrared adapter - you need infrared capability on phone too. I guess it would be dead slow too.

if you want to connect to internet on laptop but a nokia card phone. You put it in you PCMCIA slot after putting your SIM into it and it acts like your phone. It's fast and reliable but about £150 GBP

I am creating a web site where the header is moving some images depending the mouse position, you can see at it: http://www.ventadecarne.mx/
The problem is that mobile devices (iPhone, Android, iPhone, etc..) not show this effect.
I know that there is no cursor, but I want to know if I can touch the finger to view this effect.

A:About Contact Finger on Mobile Devices

Hello, and welcome to the boards...

No, I'm afraid this is not going to happen. The touch interface doesn't register constant X / Y coordinates, as is the case with a mouse, it just registers the element clicked on, and relative offsets from that element's origin.
In order for this effect to work on touch devices as it does on mouse based interfaces you would need to measure the difference in horizontal mouse location, basically over riding the drag functionality, and that's not a good idea (if it is even possible!).

When i login i get a message that i need to download (DL) an addon: IVSWeb.exe. (this is presented as a blackbox with DL URL in center over what should be camera feeds)
DLing, installing, adding site to compatibility list, relaxing Edge security settings, etc. does not change the behavior (prompted to DL IVSWeb.exe).
When i use browser emulation the results are the same (IE 8 through 11) UNTIL i get to
Microsoft Edge - Windows 10 Mobile. This setting along with
Internet Explorer 11 - Windows Phone 8.1 Update and Internet Explorer 10 - Windows Phone 8
allow me to access the DVR and view camera feeds.
This behavior is duplicated if i use IE 11 browser then enable emulation. Prompted to DL addon until emulation hits
Internet Explorer 11 - Windows Phone 8.1 Update
My question is:
What is difference between desktop Edge (cant stream camera feeds) and emulated Windows 10 mobile Edge (can stream camera feeds)?
Same for IE:
What is the difference between desktop IE 11( cant stream camera feeds)  and emulated IE 11 (can stream camera feeds)?

(in researching this i have just downloaded a couple of the browser VMs to test)

Hi there,

I've recently bought a new mobile phone (LG U8120) this came with a CD for my PC and a USB connection. I have loaded all the drivers and programmes that came with the phone.

The problem i have is when i try to Synchronise the PC with the phone i get the following message:

Fail to connect to the mobile phone,
Please check the COM port and connect in idle screen.

I've tried the help pages with the CD but i can't see that I'm doing anything wrong.

The thing i have noticed is that when i put the USB cable into the Computer i get a double noise from the PC (as though the PC doesn't like it when i place the cable into the usb port) (Does this make sense?)

Any idea's?

A:Mobile phone via USB


I assume when u say synchronize, you mean dialing directories etc. I have a LG-4400 which had a similar problem. I think the problem is the software was orginally implemented to support serial ports only. To provide support for USB, they added some additional code. My software reported a similar message, but I had an option in the software to search the USB connections. It was called "re-detect phone". It was in one of the programs pull down menus. What it did was to search all COM ports for the phones attachment. I still have to do this if I plug the phone into a different port everytime. Hope this helps.

Press Accept to use the connectoin as is, or Hang Up to disconnect."

It then has a little checkbox thing that says "do not request the failed protocols next time". I leave this clear, and click accept.

And then it has a little balloon thing in the bottom left that says "Siemens MC60 GPRS connection now connected, Speed 114.2 kbps".

And then when i try and go onto a web page it doesnt work!
