Can't charge using USB, and it is not being recognized by my pc. I've tried it on multiple pcs as well. I found out it has to with a windows insider build, since I had upgraded to windows 10. So my question, have you encountered this problem and were you able to recover with that suggestion you gave? Mine still works, just I have to use a universal battery charger to get the battery to charge.

For rollback u have to download 1.79 gb (Nearly 2gb data) and i have not much time because my net speed is slow.
I just got a 640LTE and found it only had one SIM card slot.
I see there is space for the second slot - can the second SIM card slot be added in?
san, 28 Mar 2016How to update win 10 .
For WM 10 you have two ways:
Tha safest way: install Upgrade Advisor
The kamikaze way: install Windows Insider
I prefer the first one

If your usb isn't recognized anymore, you can install on your PC the official "windows device recovery too" from the microsoft page. After starting the application on your PC, choose "my phone wasn't detected". After this, a window will appear, listing some mobile companies. Plug in your phone and wait so the software detects it and sugests you to install the last official software (meaning 8.1 for your device). Wait for the instalation to complete and don't disconnect your phone during this step.
gaurav bigg, 25 Mar 2016I also got the same network issue but after Windows 10 upgrade they fix all the issues.How to update win 10 .
I have windows 10 preview insider slow ring 164. I reset my phone now USB not detecting It's showing "Malfunction" in every PC which i connected. What to do?
Very nice phone, surprising what a good phone you can buy for 130 euro's.
Camera is above expectation for that price, so is the software and general feel. I did immediately update to Windows 10 via the insider app. Very much worth the money I spend on it and for the moment there are no apps I am missing.
bmu2016, 21 Mar 2016Just Reset your mobile,problem will be solved.Did that. It's a little better but not like on 8.1. Scrolling pages in edge and in all other app's is still jerky, phone is lagging. Hope that future updates will somehow fix that.

For the folks that are having issues with Messaging and Notification & Action sounds. Here is something that might work without hard reset.
1. "Notification and actions" under "System"
I'm guessing my case is similar to everyone, the "Messaging" option is not to be found in the "Show notifications from these apps"
2. "Lock screen" under "Personalization"
2.1 My "Choose app to show detailed status" was set to "Whatsapp"
2.2 As always I've also chosen "Messaging" in the "Choose apps to show quick status"
3. "Messaging" under "Privacy"
Chosen option ON for "Let apps read or send messages (text or MMS)".
4. "Background apps" under "Privacy"
4.1 "Messaging + Skype" was disabled
Solving the issue
1. "Background apps" under "Privacy"
Turn ON the option
2. "Lock screen" under "Personalization"
Change "Choose app to show detailed status" from "Whatsapp" to "Messaging"
3. "Messaging" under "System"
Turn ON all option (Yes, I really meant ALL OPTION)
Then I've restart my phone and asked my wife to send me one short message through the SMS/Messaging app and I've heard the sweet sound of SMS/Messaging and what a beautiful site seeing the message on my phone lock screen. And finally the "Messaging" is shown in the "Notification and actions" (after restarting).
Then I reverting back a few setting after solving the issue and the SMS/Messaging notification still works
1. "Lock screen" under "Personalization"
I've changed it back to "Whatsapp"
2. "Messaging" under "System"
Disable all the options under the "SMS/MMS"
Hope this solution will work for you phone as well.
