The data you lost when updating the software will not be able to be recovered. You basically performed a hard reset on the device which erased all data.

  1. 1
    Go to Settings and check Date and Time to see if they are correct.

You should be updating the Windows Store first before trying to update WhatsApp. Most of the time people end up uninstalling and reinstalling WhatsApp instead of updating it.

Is there a way I can get the Outlook user name I used to setup the phone?

Hello sir, please I just formatted my Windows phone but I don't remember the Outlook account for my backup, but I do have my live account details. Is there a way I can get the Outlook user name I used to setup the phone? THANK YOU

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Access Outlook on your PC. Most likely you saved "Remember Me" and the email you used will be there. Otherwise, try to think of someone you recently emailed using the Outlook account and the Username as well as the email should be in their email account.

I forgot my password and now the Lumia phone says try in 726153 minutes please help?

I have forgotten my password in a Microsoft phone please help. I have tried: So many times I tried. I think it was caused by: My phone was broken and display was gone so I went to phone shops for repair and the display was fixed but the password was incorrect

Was this helpful? Yes | No

You will have to hard reset the device. When the screen was repaired, the shop should have hard reset the device for you. Do it now so that you can access the phone again. You will need to go through the steps of setting up all of your accounts all over again.

I forgot my Nokia Lumia 430 Dual SIM password and that is why I can't update my WhatsApp please help me?

Please help me to update my WhatsApp. I have tried: My previous passwords. I think it was caused by: Forgetting password creating problem

You can change your Microsoft password as explained in the VisiHow article on this page. If you are referring to the pin lock on the device then the only way to gain access will be a hard reset. This will delete WhatsApp so you will have to reinstall the app once the phone restores itself.

I have a new Nokia 925 and I had transferred the old SIM into the new phone, but I do not have the phone numbers?

Transfer of the contact numbers into Nokia 925

As long as you backed up your data and contacts previously then you can use the Transfer My Data app that is built into the Nokia 925. You can see how to use the Transfer My Data app in this Youtube Tutorial.

Every time I try to do a factory reset it says you must do it in a sequence of patterns with the volume up down and power button but before I can finish, it switches off what can I do?

Try to a factory reset, you are supposed to hold the volume up button then it will show you the exclamation mark then it tells you; you must press in a sequence while the exclamation mark is on but before I can finish, it switches off, what can I do?. I have tried: I tried going on to different websites, they all give you different information but none of them seem to be working. I think it was caused by: I forgot my password

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Your screen lock is short. This is why it is doing this. The only way to hard reset is to write that pattern down then do it quickly. You only need to press each button in the sequence once. Remove the battery if you can on the device first before starting the hard reset process.
