Raj, 01 Apr 2016After updating 10 I lost my contact list. How can I find it? Plse help me guys.Hello Raj.
Sorry to hear that. This happens if the upgrade procedure is not followed properly. Try the following corrective measures :
1. Ensure that you have a wifi available.
2. Let the Wifi on your Windows phone remain ON.
3. Switch off your phone.
4. Now switch ON the phone.
5. After successful start-up wait for 5 minutes and check if the contacts are seen. Relax if you see them. Move on to next step if not.
6. On a separate good computer (connected to internet) Log on to www.outlook.com and use your log in and password to access your outlook account.
7. On the upper left corner, hit the Â‘PeopleÂ’ button. You would see your contact list (This is true if you used a Windows phone running 8.1 before your upgrade). Give sigh of relief. :) because it means you are out of Â‘danger zoneÂ’
8. Log out from the outlook account without making any changes.
9. Catch hold of your mobile.
10. Scroll down on the home screen from top to bottom to see the Notification area (NA). Above the NA you would see various buttons. Tap on All Settings.
11. Choose Â“SystemÂ” option followed by Â“AboutÂ”
12. ThereÂ’s a button Â“Reset your phoneÂ”. Tap it.
13. You would see a warning. Uncheck the Â“Also erase SD cardÂ” and Tap Â‘OkÂ’
14. Your phone would be reset to apply factory settings.
Remember that wifi should be ON during all this operation. When the reset is done, switch off your phone and then start it again (switch ON).
You would be pleased to see your Contact list restored. It works. Believe me, I had faced this problem on my second Lumia phone while upgrading from Win8.1 to Win10. My first Lumia got upgraded smoothly without this problem. Now both my Lumia phones are well in order with all their contact list intact.
Cool down. Admit that you need to understand how to use mobile phone. No harm in admitting that. Absolutely fine. Windows 10 doesn't suck at all for your complaint. Go to 'People' app. By default that shall be available on your start screen. You see all the contacts of your phone. Just tap in search field and start typing the name of the contact you wish to search. And you will see all the available contactd with that letters. That's it. Choose the desire one. Of course, you can pin the frequently needed contacts to the start screen.
If at all, you do not see any contacts (those were available before upgrading) let know that. Even that can be handled.
Good luck friend and request to refrain from blankly saying 'Windows 10 sucks'. Learn it to use it.

Raj, 01 Apr 2016After updating 10 I lost my contact list. How can I find it? Plse help me guys.I lost my contacts and calendar when migrating to Windows 10, and wasn't able to add my live account (after connecting had a message "Account added" by it didn't appear in the list and the contacts weren't there). After several tries, I solved it adding my account as an Exchange one (not the first option "Outlook.com, Live.com..."), worked fine and restored my contacts and calendar.

My Microsoft Lumia 640xl didn't get Windows 10 updates..when I push to update it shows your system on latest version.but it still in windows 8.1 version..please help me to solve this problem.
I. Am using airecl 3g to upgrade....but it gets stuck at 8% showing error 808882d1 Don't know what to do ??
Have updated my 640XL Dual sim to windows 10, very easy with no problems, does take a bit of time, once up and running only change is the on 8.1 I had tiles with SIM1 and SIM 2 and when making call from Contacts I had the choice of SIM to use making the call. Now I have to go into the SIM card I want to use, then search people and call, using contacts it defaults to using one Sim only. Other than that WIN 10 mobile is great. Would recommend to anyone with the 640 phone
I have updated my Lumia 640 xl to windows 10.For updating u need to download upgrade advisor app from store. Open the app and check for the update.First update is of latest version of denim.After updating latest denim again u have to check for update in upgrade advisor app.Now there will be an update of windows 10.Download it and install it.It takes time to download and install . First update take Min. 3 hrs.and windows 10 update take 6 hrs. So be patient. You need to have wifi of good speed and it takes 1.25 Gb approximate.There is no need of soft or hard reset.Your all data will be as it is after update. But saving on SD card will be good.Windows. 10 is way better than windows 8.1.Camera quality improved and so many other things.Battery will last 8-9 hrs if u use internet all day.I don't think any change in battery but the phone user interface is great and u will notice how better is 10 than 8.1. So definitely update to Windows 10. Just needed a good speed data ( wifi).
I know it should be done anyways, but we should follow some steps before upgrading as I did so my phone has not any issue after upgrade to win10. Here is what I suggest
1. Factory reset your phone
2. Check for the update in same version(i.e. 8.1)
3. Open Store, check for updates for app you have on your phone. Let the store update everything if any available.
4. Restart your phone
5. Install app "Upgrade Advisor app". It will automatically search the upgrade eligibility of your phone.
If you have already done the upgrade and having abnormal behaviour just do a rollback to 8.1 and follow all these steps as I have mentioned above.
