AnonD-486865, 10 Jan 2016The Lumia 640 is my 2nd Windows phone. I have a computer background and find the Windows phon... moreSorry to hear that you are having all those problems but if you have Windows 10 then i'm gonna assume that you have installed the preview version because as far as i know the oficial update for Windows 10 mobile for the lumia 640 became avaliable yesterday for the first time and only in some specific countries so with that being said its your fault for installing a preview version.
Im using the lastest preview build on my lumia 640 and its almost flawless so i dont know why you are having so many problems...Anyway you can allways roll back to Windows 8.1 using Windows Phone Recovery Tool. Hope that helps
Finding windows phone very difficult to use. Does anyone know if I can download an app for a smart bracelet or mi band to track sleep and steps?
When my Lumia got the same update: 1. Cortana ceased to vocally announce incoming message and give me the option to reply. 2. The ability to maintain Quiet Hours vanished. 3. I lost the ability to resize the tiles on my home screen and they don't fit like they used to. I remain with Windows phones because "they just work" (as they always say about iPhones). If I can't reverse this update mess, I'm going to buy another Lumia and block any updates beyond 8.1.
Why i not able to send any sms on lumia 640..it always shows CAN'T SEND MESSAGE error..any help....???
The Lumia 640 is my 2nd Windows phone. I have a computer background and find the Windows phone to my likings. I have read that people without a good knowledge of computers will not like a Windows phone.
My phone updated to Windows 8.1 and I had not problems with that update. Just 2 weeks ago I thought I was just ok'ing a simple update but instead my phone updated to Windows 10. Hmm, I love a challenge when it comes to a computer and this upgrade has been one challenge after another. If you are thinking about upgrading I would recommend waiting a bit longer. Here are just a few things that I have come across; for starters, not all my contacts were saved. I first tried to recover them from my Sims card which said there were no contacts on my Sims card, (Hmm). I updated them from my Google BU and my Windows live account. The Pics I had added to my friends CallerID's were mixed up. Some were right and some had wrong Pics and other were dropped. (Hmm, how did that happen).
The biggest complaint would be Messaging. Using it for the first time it mentioned something about using Skype for Messaging. Just sending a message has been fine, but the first time I tried send a picture (MMS) message I kept getting "Couldn't send, try again". I called my Tech team at Cricket and was on the phone for over an hour resetting the settings to no avail. Finally I said I would stop in at a Store and again, over an hour and they went through all the same re-setting to no Avail. The 3rd Tech I had to ask her why she thought she had the Super Touch that the previous 2 Tech's failed with? She replied with "trust me". Hmm, before I could say, "I told you so", she hung up on me and logged my call as, "problem solved". N-O-T..... I am the one that finally got it to send a picture message. I was fooling around with all the many system settings and must of turned on the right settings. I can send a picture message now BUT only if I am using my WiFi connection. The Cellular Service can not be turned on, just WiFi.. I can wait to stop in at the store and have them try and explain the reasoning behind this.
How pictures are shown (duplicates are combined) as 1, at first I was confused. Was it on my phone, SD card or Onedrive. Found by scrolling 3 screens over I found the folders and then could locate actually where the picture was stored. This is probably partially my fault since I created folders within the main Pictures folders to sort out the business pics and personal pics. Personal folders into family and friends folders. At least I can admit something that I caused as a problem.
I totally love the start screen, lock screen and all the live and non live tiles. My screen is totally a live with tiles that flip, tiles that scroll through 9 pictures, personalized tiles for apps and have logo's pinned to them for all my favorite web sites.
The new browser, "Edge" I go from liking to not liking.
Not sure why after setting up "Quiet Hours" when someone sent me someone's phone number I received the msg saying, "download content" and then couldn't retrieve it and got the message saying, "Couldn't get message during Quiet hours". Hmm, why not after Quiet hours then?. I had them resend and then I got it with Icon saying, "Contact Info", after I clicked on it I got msg saying, "need app from store". I clicked on yes to search store and have not been able to figure out how to show what the contact info actually is. I get .X-Vcard. I know what that type of file is but why doesn't the phone know?
I'm not ready to throw in the towel and demand reverting my phone back to Windows 8.1 yet. I love a challenge but not too sure if others will feel the same way.
This is just a heads up for anyone wondering about Windows 10 on their phone.
Love this phone,if u not familiar with windows it will be a bit difficult,luckily I'm a Lumia lover,with this phone u get glance screen,snapdragon 400,great camera with a hidden feature called Rich Capture,battery life the best of most Lumia's if not all,takes 1080p video,very smooth,most people here should try to do a phone update when purchasing this phone,its a must,this phone comes out with Lumia Demin,Windows 8.1 update 2,which is cool but Windows 10 is available,if you want to know more about this phone or anything bout other Lumia download"For the love of Tech" app in the Store app
I have the phone for a little whiule and it's great, good pictures, good performance. the battery lifes last if i turn of wi-fi for like 4-5 days whitout any problems' i don't understands why some users have problem. i use the phone for everything, for walking and see where i am and places around, for everithing. it's the best phone on battery life. if doesn't charge in 3 hours then you need a new charger. whit wi-fi and used 16/24 hours it's lasting whitout any charging in 16 hours.
I find it a big large for an average phone, sometimes pixels look funny if that makes sense. Personally I prefer 4.5 size for one handed. I thought battery life would be 2-3days but i charge nightly still so bit of a pain. I also like about 5 -8 tiles on screen, with this size i have to fill up like lots more tiles and it makes me a bit ocd LOL
ok people lets have the real truth this phone is terrible ive had it for 5 months the battery is terrible it doesnt even charge if u have an app open there is like no apps on the app store it goes dim and bright over and over all by itself it cant charge unless the phone is fully on and even then it takes 3 hours to charge over all this is the worst phone i have ever owned
Anonymous, 02 Jan 2016It's Lumia. Lumpia is unique food of Semarang, Indonesia.Wow i like that food :p
I have a Lumia 640 Lte, and it random reboots. I tried everything! I don`t recommend it!
So I just bought this phone just to have from AT&T Go Phone. First off, I love the design. Very handsome black. The display is very bright. The processor is smooth considering it's a small spec. Actually runs very smooth like iOS. It has almost every app on the Microsoft Store but missing a few that are in iOS and Android. Music player with music EQ sounds great! Camera takes decent pictures, not great thought, but not bad either. The tiles are live and awesome!! My first windows phone and I'm loving it!! And yes, I use a Micro SD Card with 32GB. Only thing is that it doesn't have options to buy movies TV shows or music like iOS or Android do. BlackBerry and Microsoft are stuck haha but it's cool
