I am not able to download videos, using WhatsApp on Nokia Lumia 520

The downloads on Nokia Lumia 520 take a fairly long time, even if you have the best internet connection. Hence, stay a little patient and you will be o.k. Also, this sometimes happens due to lack of space. See if your phone memory is full... If it is, then, make some space for your video.

Hi, I'm having some problem with my Lumia phone. Here is the big problem?

I have Lumia 520. I made an account with Microsoft and all my apps downloaded with the email address. Lately, I have been trying to enter the password it asks, but for some reason Microsoft keeps asking for the password again and again, seems that I have forgotten the password. Surprisingly it is not even giving any other option to which I can click and install the apps. I don't know what to do. Can you please guide me on what to do?
