Hi, I hv one Lumia 830, still at windows 8.1, but everytime when I want to update, it will appear, update was downloaded, but could not be opened. Any idea to solve the problem? TQ
Great device had it since launch. Battery still holds a good charge (lasts a day at least with heavy use). Only problem now is the lack of support from Microsoft for this device and windows phone platform as a whole
@j....., 13 Apr 2017every time i tried to upgrade to windows 10 it was done perfectly without any problem... why t... moreSupport for the 830 was dropped by Microsoft for the windows 10 creators update, Along with the upgrade advisor. Because of this you are now stuck where you are.
every time i tried to upgrade to windows 10 it was done perfectly without any problem... why the hell dis time it showing "windows mobile 10 upgrade isn't available for your device."
it'll be appreciated if anyone having idea how resolve....?
even though i can't remember how many times i went for windows 10 mobile, every time i preferred to back on windows phone 8.1, i agree it depends on person to person, i'm sharing my experiences, as i told i'm not a big fan of graphical changes if i'm not getting performance.
specially on my lumia 830 things which disappointed me in every update....
1- starting with PIN unlocking. it never ask ur old pin while removing ur PIN password, means anybody can remove PIN, i cant compromise security in the name of graphics.
2- photos- it still take a while to upload knew photos, and refreshing lag.
3- they removed FM radio, donno why they took such a stupid action.
4- they removes social network integration from people hub. ( like facebook, tweeter)
5- still calendar and mail getting trouble to sync with dates. dates kept showning previous date everytime unless u restart ur phone or resize ur calendar and mail start screen tiles.
6- glance screen always takes a bit longer time to show for notification than normal time on glance.
7- Edge browser- still far behind even from internet explorer (windows phone 8.1), no way to compare with chrome or safari. very poor performance on browsing.
8- groove music live tile sync failure, and still no way to access ur music content from onedrive.
9- surround sound not working on video recording from camera.
10- cortana looks like showing web pages on white background card.
and if we talk about os optimization its just long way to go for microsoft.
i just hope microsoft not to quit from mobile support.
i'm still on 8.1, my next os upgrade will be soon again after creator upadate where chances are very less for lumia 830 to get. or may be before on insider if not.
I'm using my lumia 830 since 2.5yrs and still not a single problem in my phone. now using it with windows mobile 10 which is stable and hope microsoft consider lumia 830 for next creators update.

Try to upgrade. And no need to go to service centre for downgrading. You can do it yourself, Use windows device recovery tool on your PC to downgrade to WP8.1 if you have issues again Also if you are upgrading from 8.1, The first upgrade will deploy build 10586.219. From there it will update again to build 14393.953(Current Public build as on 28th March 2017). But trust me. I find the current windows 10 mobile way better than the stock OS.

kenn.b, 25 Mar 2017Try and Upgrade to W10 and I believe this time it'll be great.Just like that?! I am scared

I was able to solve it after almost two weeks of struggle. You need to download and install the Windows Device Recovery Tool on your computer, and after that connect your phone to the computer to properly install the 8.1 software in order to get it working perfectly including all the apps in OS8.1.

They just make calls, text, email, wats app, nothing else...
I I owned lumia 950, 830, 720...
And in all I'm not satisfied as I was with windows phone 8.1 in terms of processing, smoothness app support etc...
I'm not much fan of graphics if I'm not getting better processing...
The things which bother me the most in windows 10 Mobile, very bad experience in browsing, and on some app functioning like fb, camera on video recording, podcast, still not happy with mail and calendar sync, o's, and many more... Apart from dis all... I'm big fan of Microsoft... Not bcz wat it is offering us today, but bcz wat it would be in future the kind of innovative things they are trying to implement...

My Lumia 735 has lower specs than Lumia 830, and its buttery smooth with all versions of Win 10. You gotta be crazy. In fact, I also own a Lumia 720 which I reverted back to 8.1 after trying win 10. That one sure sucks on win 10, unusable I would say. Point is that I trust MS, and they are right.
I was using windows 10 mobile, but I wasn't happy with the experience, so I came back to 8.1 last night.
Since than Im not able to update some of apps from windows store, others many apps works fine, I tried many time by reinstalled them, but with those particular calendar, Lumia camera, device hub, and podcast it keeps failing everytime... Do u guys have any idea...
Here is wat I have tried-
Tried with other wifi, and mobile data,and hard reset, turn automatic time updates off than retry but still same...

I'll recommend the win 10 upgrade.
win 10 is way better, faster, more user friendly that win 8
excellent camera, battery life and built quality
I have a problem with no sound from Lumia 830 speakers .... !!
Any solutions please ..... ??
Mic works just fine and so does the the headphone jack .....
Can't figure why both the onboard speakers won't work .....
Any solutions for the same ??!!!
Thanks in advance
