I could not hear my caller on my Nokia 630?

I switched it OFF and ON, it never worked out. I then did a Factory Reset it worked but now it has started again. I can't hear my caller

This is a Developer Bug. Microsoft has rolled out updates to correct the issue but until you receive the corrected version you will have to perform the factory resets when this occurs. Sorry.

Windows phone doesn't download or update apps?

I use Lumia 520 and it doesn't download and update apps since yesterday, I tried all the possible ways, soft reset, and all the suggestions on various websites, but nothing worked. Whenever I download any app or update, it says pending and doesn't proceed. Please help.

Try the option of entering your email password in settings. You also may want to try the backup method posted in the above answer. Clearing cache may also help but usually after an update you have to reconfigure your email and then do the manual backup with Nokia Lumia phones.
