Reset your password again. This time choose the option I Don't Use These Anymore when it asks to send the code to your phone via SMS. You will then be given the option to put in a different email than the one you are trying to recover. Microsoft will take you through an extra security process to make sure you are not trying to steal the account. If all else fails, contact Microsoft directly because you will not be able to use your Nokia Lumia without your Microsoft Account. Also, to use WhatsApp and other apps, your Windows OS needs to be higher than 8.1.

You can reset your password on the PC. I would caution though that since your phone was stolen, you should factory reset it. This is just to protect in the case that malware was installed on the device. You can connect the phone to Nokia's PC Suite to backup images and contacts first.

Hi Thor, didn't expect you to be here. The problem is how to change MS account on a Lumia 650 phone?

I can add an additional account but we want this one to be the Master but can't change it. Do you have an instruction on how to do?. I have tried: We have tried to remove the current account without any change

Was this helpful? Yes | No

The only way to remove your original Master Account is to perform a hard reset on the Lumia 650. You can connect to Nokia's PC Suite to backup the phone with the new Microsoft account. Sometimes though it still glitches and will not allow you to backup with the new account.

Under my CORTANA A MESSAGE THAT SAYS ENTER YOUR MICROSOFT ACCOUNT PASSWORD THEN TAP SAVE SHOWING A Hotmail ACCOUNT I DIDN'T KNOW EXISTS

If you have a phone provided by your employer, you may need to ask them what Hotmail account was used for the Microsoft Exchange Account. If they do not know it or did not set one up, then you should hard reset your device in case of malware being on the device. Do not access any bank or financial apps until you have done a hard reset to protect against theft.
