Q: Lumia 640 LTE Dual SIM won't update to 15254.401

Hi,
I have Lumia 640 on FCU insider @15254.369. Windows update won't find the new update anymore. I reset the whole phone last week and that was not a solution. Did you get your Lumia 640 updated lately?

Cheers, LeonMan

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm using a Lumia 640 Dual SIM running Windows 10 Mobile (10586.164), but am unable to choose which SIM card to call someone from within the People App now. You used to be able to press the down arrow and select which SIM card to call from, but now it doesn't matter where you press, it just dials the phone number without giving you any choice. As you can tell by the 'History' tab in the below screenshot, this is with the latest version of the People app.

Anyone else using a Lumia Dual SIM finding the same thing?

As the Windows 10 Mobile release inches closer and closer, Microsoft has now updated its software update page for Windows Phone to include Windows 10.

The page, which typically helped Lumia users to know the status of their updates (and previously whether it was in testing, waiting for dispatch etc) has now been updated to include instructions for Lumia devices running Windows 10 Mobile.

In addition to that, Microsoft?s Windows Phone help page is now full of FAQs about Windows 10 (we?re going with Microsoft?s branding here from now on) for the casual user.

As the roll out ? rumoured to be starting next week and currently being shipped out to carriers for staging ? inches ever closer, Windows Phone users should be excited about the new functionality enabled by Microsoft.

To reiterate, the first few devices that Microsoft has confirmed will get Windows 10 are the Lumia 430, Lumia 435, Lumia 532, Lumia 535, Lumia 540, Lumia 635 (1 GB RAM), Lumia 640, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 735, Lumia 830, and Lumia 930.

Before I get to the poll, a little history is in order

I got my first droid retiring my 3GS (moved to iOS from WinMO), few years ago. But I think it is the most regrettable of decisions I made. Because despite the fact that I always went for the higher end droid (at least of its time, e.g. Desire/SGS/SGSII/Sensation/SGSIII to name few) I never found a stable / solidly performing android phone. They all suffered from random crashes, reboots, sluggishness, hang ups (and I only install 4/5 apps - I need nothing more). They all have various annoying quirks as well, e.g. SGS III doesn't want to find any WiFi network at times, folders on home screen will randomly open at their own; my older Sensation's screen would stop responding "in some places" etc. IMHO almost all droids I owned had great hardware, but a crappy OS.

Few months ago, I got my hands on Lumia 800 and used it along side my Sensation/SGS III for 2+ months; and my views about WP totally changed. It easily outperforms all those multi-core droids with its dated single core SoC, being absolutely rock solid, and very easy to use UI (unlike androids copycat of iOS).

It is time again to jump ship, only thing to decide is should I get ATIV S or Lumia 920 (though I'm tilting toward the later due to better support / upgrade cycle of Nokia compared to Samsung). However, SuperAMOLED display of ATIV S will be more battery friendly, and it also have expansion slot .........

ATIV S / 920 comparison.... Read more

A:ATIV S or Lumia 920

I'm firmly set on the Lumia 920 right now. I've always had a thing for Nokia handsets, and until Android hit the scene I only ever owned them. Plus, I don't think I'll miss the lack of storage expansion (my SGS3 has 16GB now and I'm only using 1GB of it!), and I think Nokia will be quicker and more supportive with its own apps than Samsung will be.

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.

The problem with my Lumia 1520 is that for some reason it won't connect to the private network in the hostel where I currently am. Previously every month in order to use the WiFi, you were given a new username and password, and then the Salvation Army menu would appear in IE, and fill out the details there and there was no problem.

Every time I try to connect in WiFi it would automatically take me to the menu in IE mentioned previously. Now it goes to secure password page and enter the password without the username and keeps saying renter password without even to try the password. I have connected to other free WiFi hot spots with no problem, it just appears to be the Salvation Army one, and yes I have asked other residents with Lumia phones and other manufacturers and have not come across this problem.

I also tried, using a random password but only 8 characters long and it looks as if it is trying to use it, nut then reverts back to the re-enter password. Unfortunately, I have also tried the Hard Reset with no joy, and used several usernames and passwords given to me all resulting in the same problem.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

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?!!!

I currently have an 8GB,Micro SDHC, Class 4, Non-branded Memory Card in my phone, but it's full up. I have bought & tried a Kingston 64GB, Micro SDXC, Class 10; a SanDisk, 64GB, micro SDXC, Class 10; & a Samsung 64GB, micro SDXC, Class 4. None of them is recognized by my phone, although they work fine in my laptop. Do I need to reduce the size down to a 32GB, SDHC, or what can anybody recommend for me to try next. I have read that somebody has installed a 128GB in the same model phone & got it to work, but I don't want to go to the expense for that size. Thanks for any suggestions!

A:Memory card for Nokia Lumia 1520 smart phone.

It's not something I've experienced, so maybe someone who's experienced the problem first hand will come along shortly. However, when you say they aren't recognised, I assume it shows the SD Card in Storage Sense as 'not found'? Just out of interest, if you install the 'Files App' (a Microsoft App), does if show the card then?

Another thing to check is whether the cards are formatted to the right file system? Taken from HERE:






What file systems do my Lumia phone support?

Your phone supports FAT32 for SDHC cards, exFAT for SDXC cards, with a single Master Boot Record (MBR) partition table.

- Up to 32-GB SDHC cards using the FAT file system.
- 64-GB SDXC cards using the exFAT file system.



Instructions for formatting the card here:
FAQ - My memory card is not working properly in Lumia phone - Microsoft - UK

If that doesn't work, a quick Google search shows that some people have needed to completely reset the phone before it would recognise their SD card. Obviously, this would be a bit of a sledge hammer solution and not particularly ideal as it would entail backing up your entire phone, completely wiping it and starting again from scratch by going to Settings > About > Reset Your Phone.

Of course I read all about the restore problems with Vista when XP boots, so eventually I unplugged the XP drive and have been running Vista solely. I've been pretty much happy. I notice a problem when burning cdr's that my older boombox does not play the discs and my car sometimes does not want to play the first track, but I can start it from track 2 and then rewind to 1. I had no problems with the burner in XP. So I get nervous when burning discs for friends that they will have problems, so for now I use my wifes pc to burn those.
