Lumia 620 & Windows Phone App Connection Problems

I've been having problems with a Lumia 620 connecting to the Windows Phone App on my Windows 8 laptop. The App keeps reporting that the phone has a problem and is not playing nicely. I've eliminated the laptop as the issue as my Lumia 920 connects without a hitch. I'm guessing the issue is with the Lumia 620's software as it was recently updated in the past two months. Any solutions out there apart from resetting the phone?

you could try to uninstall the windowsphone app from your laptop and reinstall it to see if maybe it wasn't connecting and loading the drivers correctly.

  • Application Insights is not recording any data from the released version of my Windows Phone app

    I released my first Windows Phone app a week ago, and Application Insights worked perfectly to collect usage data whilst in a debug build. However, the released version of the app is not returning any data at all. Is this a common problem for new apps or
    is there a problem that I need to address?
    I configured Application Insights for my app using the information on this guide - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn509554.aspx
    Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated, thanks for your help.

    Hi Bernard, thanks for your reply.
    I tested the data using a release package of the Windows Phone app deployed directly to my phone from Visual Studio and the data appeared after around 10 minutes. However, once I published the exact same package to the Windows Phone Store and started using
    the version downloaded from the store, no usage data has been uploaded even after several days of waiting.
    I am using SDK 0.7.1 and Application Insights Tools for Visual Studio v1.3.2. The app is built for WP 8.0 and running on WP 8.1.
    The instrumentation key is 757eeaff-605e-44a2-8eaa-6abf498bfcf5.
    Thanks for your time and help, I really appreciate it.

  • Pass values between Windows phone app and wpf

    Hi,
    i am creating a windows phone app where it is like a remote for desktop app which have timer start stop and break
    where start should activate the desktop applicaition timer like that.
    what are the possibility that i can control wpf(desktop) app with a windows phone app directly without any database sort of thing.
    thank you

    For help with the WPF side of this you'll be better off posting in the WPF forum.
    There isn't any remote control system built in, but you can use standard networking to implement your own. From the phone side take a look at the
    Connecting to networks and web services documentation. In particular, the
    Adding support for networking and
    Connecting with sockets sections are likely to get you on the right path.

  • Why am I getting the message "Your app isn't identified as a universal app in the Store." when I have already associated my Windows Phone app to my Windows Store app?

    I associated two Windows Phone apps to their respective Windows Store apps yet one of them is giving me this message on the pricing tab...
    "Your app isn’t identified as a universal app in the Store. Publish a Windows app with the same name, and you’ll enable the universal app icon, with all the associated benefits. If you’ve already published a related Windows app, this icon may not 
    be appearing because of restrictions you’ve set on your app.
    Learn more about  these restrictions."
    I have checked under "Learn more" and I am meeting all the requirements for the icon to show.  Please help as I really think having this icon on the Phone store will help downloads and I want my users to know there is a Windows partner app.

    I downloaded the new OS X Yosemite.
    Not sure what you mean by new, since Yosemite was released about 9 months ago.
    When i  try to open it i get this message, The version of iPhoto installed on this Mac is not compatible with OS X Yosemite.
    iPhoto version 9.6.1 is the latest version of iPhoto that is compatible with Yosemite. If you're just now updating to Yosemite from an older version of OS X, then you may have missed your window of opportunity to upgrade iPhoto to the latest version.
    So i go to the Mac App Store i get this message, "The item you've requested is not currently available in the U.S. store."
    With the release of the 3rd Yosemite update,10.10.3, which includes Photos, iPhoto is no longer available for purchase.
    I would recommend that you use Photos.

  • Installing Windows Phone Apps to Windows 8.1

    Are Windows Phone applications supposed to installed on Windows 8.1 Pro?   The 8.1 Start menu includes the Store application, but most of the apps I need to install refuse to install and insist that they need a Windows Phone account.

    Each device processor has it's own architecture (a set of instructions that is supported by a processor), referred by a unique name. So, in the case of desktop, the architecture is x86 (or x86-64). In the case of phones, it's ARM (Advanced RISC Machines)
    architecture. Hence, the apps developed for Windows Phone will not be able to run in Windows desktop, and so you're seeing the error message.
    Hence, as britishdhez says, you can use the phone emulator. The emulator emulates the ARM architecture in the desktop PC, so Windows Phone apps will run on the emulator without any issues.

  • Windows Phone app based on website

    Hey, I want to make windows phone app and don't know where to start. Actually, I don't need help with how to make wp app, but how to get data from website. My app should look something similar to the Microsoft Facebook app (except that it will not be Facebook).
    Let me try to explain it a bit. In facebook app you click a button (for example "news") and magic happens - content from facebook appears. My question is, how? What do I have to do to "communicate" with website, to get content or even trigger
    website functions. So far I've been only able to work with websites that I have access to database. I assume "magic" is going on using GET and POST functions, but I don't think that are the only two functions to do awesome app such as Facebook
    (developed by Microsoft)...

    You would have to add a webservice on the web site you can call to get the data.  I would recommend using the web api for this.
    If your website has an rss feed you can use that to get data from the website also

  • My Server 2012 R2 Windows Phone App now available!

    Hi, All,
    Greetings!  I am very pleased to announce that the My Server 2012 R2 Windows Phone App
    has been published to
    Windows Phone Store. This version is targeted to work with the new released Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials and the Windows Server Essentials Experience server role in Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard & Datacenter. To
    try out the new version, search ‘My Server 2012 R2’ from your windows phone and install it. Let team know if you have any feedback on this app.
    Thanks,
    Windows Server Essentials Team

    Great option guys! Now I can REALLY centralize my media without reliance on third party products.
    For Phone App, it's great to have it but it seems to be lacking in UX. i.e. there is no option to start slideshow or even go from one photo to next in the list. It's very inconvenient to go from one photo to next by backing out to the list and clicking on
    next photo.
    Another feature I would love to have is integration on Photo/Video/Music hub. That way I don't have to explicitly launch app to access my music/photo/videos.
    Keep up good work and I hope to see much more functionality and tighter integration in future updates.

    Hi,
    No it is not currently possible, In Windows 10 a new business portal will be introduced that should solve this.

  • I recently purchased a Nokia Lumia 1020 and I am unable to instal the Windows phone App.

    I keep getting this error message when I try to install the Windows App: Windows phone can't be installed on Mac HD becasue Mac OS X Version 10.7 or later is required. Under the About this Mac section it says it is: MAC OS X 10.6.8 but there there are no updates available. Any assisitance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    10.6.8 is Snow Leopard. 10.7.x is Lion. You need to upgrade, at least, to Lion (or the current release, Mountain Lion) in order to use the software.
    You can purchase Lion (10.7.x) by calling Apple and getting a redemption code for the Mac App Store. If you want to upgrade to Mountain Lion, make sure that your MacBook Pro meets the minimum requirements -> http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5444 and, if so, you can purchase and download it directly from the Mac App Store.
    Good luck,

  • Share Image,Link and Text to Social Networking App from My Windows Phone App

    Hi,
    I am developing windows phone 8.1 silverlight app where I want to share Images,Links and text to Social Networking App Like Facebook,Twitter,Whatsapp and Instragram.
    In Share content contains A Image of App Icon, A Link of App website and I invitation Text.
    There are Five buttons
    Share by Email
    Share by Facebook
    Share by Twitter
    Share by Whatsapp
    Share by Instragram
    Problems which I faced
    I can not attached image to Email. How it is Possible.?
    I can only open whatsapp from my App. But can not share to this
    I have used Share task but in list of app there is no whatsapp and instragram app ( I know there is no official app for instragram but it is Instragram Beta app)
    Please guide me how can I share my content to all above app

    Please see this sample application:
    https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsapps/Sharing-Content-Source-App-d9bffd84
    You cannot control what appears in the share UI.  The Share UI Will show all applications that have registered to receive the type of content you are sharing.  So if a particular application is not appearing, then it is not registered as a Share
    target for that content type.
    I would run the sample on your phone for the various content types.  it should give you a good idea of which apps are registered for which content type.

  • Microsoft Lumia 920 Windows Phone 10 Technical Preview no network (with active sim card)

    I updated the Nokia Lumia 920 to windows phone 10 last night and now doesn't recognise the sim card EE (T mobile uk) which is inserted inside it. What can I do to fix this?
    I have tried resetting the phone this improved the network WIFI connection. But the phone still didn't recognise the SIM card.
    Device Information

    Greetings Michael, 
    I performed the two functions you suggested, dism.exe
    /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth stated "Error 0x800f0906 The Source files could not be downloaded. Use the
    "source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=243077
    Then, according to sfc /scannow, it stated: "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.log. Note that logging is currently not supported in offline servicing scenarios." 
    At this point. I may attempt to install the ISO on a flash drive, and perform a repair on the OS, unless you have some other advice! Thanks for your help! 

  • Unreliable call notifications on Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8

    [Topic title updated by moderator to better reflect the discussion topic]
    My wife and I both own the Lumia 920 with the latest Windows Phone 8 update (GDR2/Lumia Amber). We have installed Skype on each handset. We are signed into the app and into our Live accounts. I used her phone and Skyped my phone. Nothing happened. Though her Skype app showed my phone to be "ringing," my phone in fact never gave any indication that a call was trying to come in. There was also no notification on the lockscreen, though I enabled that feature on my phone's settings.
    I went into the Skype app and looked under its settings, but all I find are toggles to turn on Skype and Messenger messages, both of which are on. I know that I'm missing something. I checked Background Tasks on the handset. Skype doesn't show up on the list of blocked apps. But neither does it show up as "allowed." When I go into Background Tasks > Advanced, there is a list of grayed-out items that I "may not be able to block," and Skype is on that list. But I can find no option to manually permit it.
    How do I know when someone is Skyping me?
    Thanks!

    It's been over a month since my first post and providing the Skype team with details for them to troubleshoot, still no word from them. I have almost all the issues that you would find online about Skype and nothing they said is fixed works for me. I have since tested on my iPad 2 (iOS 7) as well, same story and having multiple devices made it even worse. I don't get sound when text notifications arrive on my iPad, just on-screen alerts (yes, Skype notifications have been set to play sound). Calls only show up as missed calls after the fact, just like my WP8. Skype was unresponsive when I tried to pick up a text notification on the iPad and I had to switch over to my WP8, just to have my first failed reply using the iPad pop up the next day on my PC. What's even funnier was the other side received this "first" response 5 or 6 hours before I saw it on my side and his response to that didn't get to me until 7 hours later when the real conversation concluded the night before. The multiple device sync they said they fixed back in the Feb release isn't working either. I would be texting away on the iPad and my phone sitting right next to me would be pinging away with notifications. So much for only sending notifications to the active device. Maybe they're pinging my phone to compensate for the soundless iOS? Even something simple as emoticons is messed up. I've received them as code on my PC from someone texting me from another Skype account, they've turned into little squares or code if I view the conversation on a different device from the one I used to send them originally. Profile pics of contacts appear and disappear at random. Even what you think is the most stable and functional PC version is crapping out. Statuses of my contacts are rarely current and you need to log off and log back on to trigger it to refresh. And that doesn't work 100% of the time. Renaming contacts on the PC does nothing when you view it on other devices. So my contacts who have mutliple accounts show up with the exact same name multiple times on my WP8 and iPad. I have to go into the contact details in order to tell which one is personal and which one is work. I don't think you can make it this bad if you intentionally tried. They have essentially killed two great products with one merger and pissed off both loyal Messenger and Skype users. If I didn't have contacts on Lync, which only Skype can reach when you don't have Lync at home, I would have been so gone.
